Abstract A packet serving to contain a group of cigarettes appears substantially parallelepiped in shape with a predominating longitudinal axis disposed parallel to the longitudinal axes of the cigarettes, and comprises a front, a back and two flanks, also a bottom, and a top that can be opened at least in part to provide an area affording access to the inside of the packet. The cigarettes are packaged together with a fan-folded pressure element of stiff paper placed between the group and one flank, which is rendered flexible along at least one line or portion of elastic deformation and able thus to compress and expand elastically along an axis of compression and expansion normal to the axis of the packet; as a result of the tension stored in the pressure element, the cigarettes are invested with a uniformly applied pushing force and biased toward the access area whilst a similarly uniform reaction force is directed against the inside face of the flank.
