Women have made powerful advances in the corporate world which
was male dominated for so long. Women add a certain “Class” of their own to this Gentlemen’s industry. They are not afraid to indulge in relaxing pastimes once enjoyed only by the opposite sex.
The ritual of lighting a cigar and savoring the complex tastes of a well aged and properly treated smoke can be a wonderful focus for relaxation and meditative reflection on the pleasures of here and now rather than the demands of a busy schedule.
