[[caption-width-right:300:Ah, The Si-*COUGH* S-Sixties...]]

One character blows cigar or cigarette smoke in another character's face as an expression of defiance, dominance, or just plain {{jerkass}}ery.

The person on the receiving end may react in a number of ways, from stoically putting up with it, to casually wafting it away, to [[OfCourseISmoke breaking into a racking fit of coughing]]. In cartoons the cloud of smoke may dissipate to reveal an AshFace.

A SubTrope of GoodSmokingEvilSmoking; this behaviour will generally be an indicator of an Evil Smoker, although a good CigarChomper may be able to [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold get away with it]] (especially if the target has [[LaserGuidedKarma earned his contempt]]).
