A good cigar is nothing without accessories, such as lighters, cutters, ashtrays, and everything else. Just imagine, you have a plenty of those beautiful Cuban stogies from different brands, with a perfect appearance and nice aroma, but don't have proper accessories to finally start smoking them! So some smart people who probably didn't know the art of blending different tobaccos, decided they would rather help us smoke our cigars in the most comfortable way possible.
Here are some of the most significant and frequently used accessories a true cigar aficionado must have:
A young yet very talented team of professionals working at Rabbit Air have created the air purifiers that are able to clear and freshen up the room you are smoking in so much - Rabbit Air Art Series Air Purifier and Rabbit Air MinusA2 Air Purifier.
What would a smoker do without an ashtray? It really scared me once when we started smoking cigars at a friend's place but were unable to find his ashtray and had to use a plate - what a disappointment!
The most famous companies producing ashtrays are Xikar (Xikar Ashtray Can) - a young company but far-reaching company every aficionado knows for sure;
Stinky Cigar (Stinky Cigar Ashtray 3.0, The Stinky Cigar Floor Ashtray) - another young company from Las Vegas, being one of the leading manufacturers of cigar accessories in the United States;
C.A.O. International Inc. (X' Ashtray from C.A.O.) - cigar and cigar accessories manufacturer, initially specializing in making pipes and humidors and based in Nashville, Tennessee, this company has regained its high reputation with first-premium cigars and various accessories.
I really love these things and cannot imagine a short trip without them. They're compact, easy to carry and occupy little place. What would my stogies do without them?? ;)
Bugatti (Bugatti Cigar Cases) - this sole word turns me on and makes me wish I'd be very rich one day - to buy cars and cigar cases from this elite company.
Cigar cases from Xikar (Xikar Envoy Carbon Fiber Triple Cigar Case, Xikar's Single Stick Case) - they're as good as their other accessories. Just try it once, and you'll never regret it ;).
Of course you could bite the tip of your cigar and smoke it happily ever after, but, c'mon, guys, it's much better and nicer to have it cut with a proper cutter. Which one? It's you to decide.
Davidoff is about everything - coffee, cigars, fragrances and of course, cigar accessories - Davidoff in Rose Gold.

A Boston, Massachusetts based company - Boston Cigar Cutter is highly specializing in cigar cutters, such as

A case for storing cigars, and a very useful and necessary one - it's humidor. And I thank God, there was a person who went as far as inventing this wonderful device.

Bóveda Humidors by Savoy, Siglo's Koi Fish, Daniel Marshall Sterling Silver Humidor, D' Aprile Stone Humidor, Davidoff Cabinet Humidor, Toraño 90th-Anniversary Humidor.
A lighter is the evolved form of matches which could be used by cigar smokers but lighters have a better appearance.
Here are some lighters from the companies we are already acquainted with, such as Zippo Blu from a company whose history dates back from 1895.
A lighter from Colibri - Colibri's Enterprise III Lighter.

It's not quite about cigars but mostly about your respiration.
