So it only leaves the smell of burning coals ? Not the smell of the flavor.

The only smell that ive ever had on me was the smell of whatever i was smoking (for example, blueberry, watermelon, tangerine) and its actually really nice.

However the smell can fade really quickly so dont worry about it

Also people who dont smoke shisha wont be able to tell that youve smoked tobacco, to them they just smell whatever you smoked

I also had this concern when first starting, but now its not even a concern for me anymore

If you're worried about clothing / furniture / paint on the wall, the answer is no. I have non-smokers to my place all the time and tell me they dont even notice I use my hookah every day.

It really leaves no aftersmell, 10-20minutes with a window open and its like it was never even there.

As for breath, naw, just have a glass of something to drink afterwords and its like it was never even there.

I feel ya, but in a reverse sorta way. my mom chain smokes ultra light cigerettes and always smells like em. and she asked me why I never smell like smoke, my response is that the smoke from a hookah is a lot lighter, and does not get into your cloths...breath wise I never ever get any kind of breath when I smoke, granted I always smoke with something to drink but still I never get the feeling that i need to go brush my teeth after a session.

So if i smoked out in the garden when she was out,She wouldn't be any the wiser that i had smoked hookah ??

Cool Re: Im new to hookah,Does it leave a Smell ?

What leaves the smell from cigs is tar. The tar sticks to everything cloths furniture roofs paint everything. Our shisha tobacco has 0.0% tar so no, nothing should smell for longer then a few min. Whats more I smoke in my apartment all the time and there is no smell.

My clothes never smell after a session, which is awesome. I hate being around people who smoke cigarettes and your clothes reak afterwards.

One thing I like about hookah is that the smell is non intrusive. Cigarrettes are the exact opposite!

Cigarette smoke is disgusting. Other than the smell, obviously, it will leave nicotine and tar residues on the walls and the furniture.

Hookah smoke doesn't have such residues, as it's mostly water vapor. Only the smell will remain. Ex-smokers are often very sensitive about odors, especially when they're from tobacco. Depending on the temper, they will either be slightly annoyed or engage full-on RAGE MODE.

Ventilate the place well at there should be little to no smell after an hour.

I smoke blue mist all the time lately, and all it does is make the room smell fruity. Its great! Hookah is awesome in the way that you do not get any smell at all. I have smoked it for a few hours and nothing was on my clothes or hands or anything like that.

The only thing i have noticed, is that the next day after smoking i can still taste the flavor from the tobacco that i was smoking. <shrugs> not sure why though.

Clean your stuff properly, especially the hose (provided it's washable). Some flavors will ghost your rig and will require you to use vinegar to obliterate them.

I'm an ex smoker of many, many years. I quit a few months ago and am hyper sensitive to smells now. As mentioned by Dakins, I absolute hate the smell of smoke now. Annoying hookah smells (for me), come from the initial lighting of coals, which eventually disappear few mins after starting them up when using naturals. The other annoying smoke smell comes from when you accidentally burn your shisha due to over heating, not paying attention, experimentation, etc. Of course, dropping coal on something flamable like carpet will make a smell too. But normal use, nah, depending on the flavor you're smoking, makes the room smell like it. If you smoke primarily fruit flavors, your room will smell like a fruit bowl. Smoke coffee flavors, the room will smell like a Starbucks. If in doubt or just curious, check out a lounge before you try it out in the house.

I can't stand walking into a house and it just reaks of cigarettes, its just an odor that is almost unbearable to me.

Honestly, I had an ex whose mother smoked constantly, so she hated smokers because of the smell, apparently hookah was pleasant enough not to bother her.

As for the smell of the room, window open should be fine man, however, if you're in her house, it is her rules, I never disrespected my father's non smoking rule in his own house.

If you want to talk her into allowing you to smoke a hookah, remember that smoking a fruit based flavor counts as a serving of fruit.
(the previous statement was entirely preposterous)

This. I try to smoke outside when I can. When my house burned down a few years ago my husband lost his job right after that, so we had to move in with my parents. My mother is a non-smoker. Since I have a child, we do not ever smoke cigarettes in the house; however, my parents have no problems with me smoking the hookah in my bedroom as it's upstairs (my son sleeps downstairs) and the smell does not travel throughout the house.

I'd recommend smoking outside. It's better than trying to figure out whether your mom would detect a faint hint of whatever you were smoking and risk being in trouble, even if you are of legal age. At least smoking outside there wouldn't be that slim chance she'd notice. She may be disappointed in you if she found out you were smoking in general, but at least you'd be respecting her home. As a side-note, she should not be able to pick up any odor of smoke on your clothing.
