The influence on cigarette smoke composition of main indexes of different type /brands/ cigarette paper is investigated, which we work in Bulgaria, produced by different firms. The model cigarettes have produced with different blend composition and different physical indexes, which are investigated for smoke composition. It is established that significant varying of air permeability of paper determine irregular decreasing of smoke matters. The absolute and relative matters decreasing /nicotine, tars and carbon monoxide/ with increasing permeability don't depend on tobacco blend.

Key words: cigarette paper, blend composition, smoke composition
