Subject: Aromatic vs. What?

Greetings, fellow pipe-o-philes (or whatever we're called);

Ever since I started smoking a pipe (circa 1978), I've never
understood aromatics.

The way I've always thought of it, an aromatic is a tobacco that
smells great (lit or unlit), but doesn't have much taste.  To my way
of thinking, that's sort of a social tobacco; something you can
smoke at a party and not worry about choking everyone out of the

Well, if that's the case, what do you call a blend that tastes
great, but maybe doesn't have much in the aroma department?

I ask this because I just got my new Carey's Smokeshop catalog, and
I'm dying to try some of the flavored blends, but some of the
aromatics sound great, too.  Does anyone out there buy from Carey's?

While I'm on the subject, does anyone smoke an Aerosphere pipe?  How
do you like it?
