Abstract (en)

A package for smoking articles comprises an outer shell (4) and an inner shell (2). The outer shell (4) has two major lateral walls (20) opposite to each other, as well as a top wall (24), a rear wall (22) and a bottom wall connecting the lateral walls (20). The inner shell (2) is mounted in the outer shell (4) for pivotal movement relative to the outer shell (4) between a closed position, in which the interior of the inner shell (2) is not accessible, and an open position, in which the interior of the inner shell (2) is at least partially accessible and in which the inner shell (2) partially protrudes between front edges (32) of the lateral walls (20). The outer shell (4) comprises an inner panel (30) positioned between the inner side of one of the lateral walls (20) and the inner shell (2), the inner panel (30) being provided with at least one cutout (34), preferably a slot. The inner shell (2) comprises a protruding tab (18) which is adapted to interact with the at least one cutout (34) during movement of the inner shell (2) to produce a noise.
