Camel is a trade mark of cigarettes that was marketed by American company R.J. Reynolds Tobacco in the summer of 1913.
Camel cigarettes were originally so mixed up that they had a milder taste in comparison with the other harsher brands at the time of the brand introduction. Most current Camel cigarettes are blended with Turkish and Virginia tobacco. The most famous historical style of Camel cigarettes is the soft pack of the regular, unfiltered variety. Packaging for the cigarettes includes colors like fuchsia and teal.
Camel also brought fame to the celebrities. Such personality, for example, as news broadcaster Edward R. Murrow (a chain smoker) reached success and enjoyed popularity, using a Camel cigarette as his trademark. Moreover, they were promoted due to a regular and careful advertising campaign.
In 1992, the American Medical Association published a report, where it was stated that 5- and 6-years old boys and girls could more easily recognize Joe Camel than Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny or even Barbie.
In 2005, Camel introduced new creative changes to the Turkish flavors by adding the select on the cigarette paper and changing the color and design. A blend called "Turkish Shining", a light mixture of both the Turkish Gold and Stately varieties, also became available.
The Camel No. 9 brand - promoted and marketed as "light and luscious" - is viewed as a successful method to attract women to Camel. One would ask why, because these cigarettes are initially and traditionally made for men. Nowadays, about 30 percent of current Camel smokers are female. But this number is increasing day by day.
Thus, we see that this brand of cigarettes occupied its significant niche on the market due to its unbelievable flavor, aroma and even strong influence on our life.
