The aroma quality of cigarette smoke is an important characteristic for smokers. It is therefore critical to understand the nature of the key aroma compounds in tobacco smoke and to identify them. Also, knowing how flavour compounds in tobacco smoke are released and how they persist in the nose of smokers would help in designing cigarettes with optimised flavour release for the consumer. One approach is to use Gas Chromatography with Olfactometry detector (GC-0). The GC-Olfactometry technique and the Nasal Impact Frequency (NIF) method were proven to be applicable in analysing the aroma of complex matrices such as tobacco smoke.
