E-Juice Review: PerfectVape’s Lemon Pound Cake

PerfectVape sent this to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up Lemon Pound Cake from PerfectVape.com

Product Specs

  • Price: 10 ml for $4.00, 4 ounces (approx. 120 ml) for $18.49, and 1 gallon for $303.90
  • Nicotine levels: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg

Taste and Smell

This e-juice smells just like lemon pound cake. It even makes me think of a moist cake, freshly unwrapped from the store. It smells great.

I tested this using my iStick100wTC at 61 watts using the MutationXv built at 0.79 ohms.

The flavor tastes a little different than the smell unfortunately. I really wanted it to taste the way it smells. The lemon is a lot stronger than I had expected and the cake flavor isn’t very strong. That’s not to say that it doesn’t taste like cake though, it’s just very light. The lemon is also more “citrusy” than a pastry taste.

The lemon flavor doesn’t taste artificial, which is great and the flavor overall is sweet but not too sweet.

The Bottom Line

I haven’t tried many lemon e-juices before so I don’t have anything to compare Perfect Vape’s Lemon Pound Cake to, but I enjoyed the flavors. The lemon and cake flavors are definitely in here, but the cake flavor is very light and the lemon flavor is kind of strong. I really wanted the cake flavor to come out more, but this is still a pretty good e-juice.

E-Juice Review: Rogue by DIYVaporSupply.com – Apple Pie and Ice Cream

DIY Vapor Supply sent this to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up Rogue from DIYVaporSupply.com.

I like the presentation of this line. The bottles have a nice classy label and the bottles are made of amber glass, which is the best glass you can use for storing e-juice because it blocks nearly all UV rays.

Product Specs

  • Nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg
  • Prices: 30ml for $14.95, 60ml for $29.95, 120ml for $39.95

What’s It Taste Like?

DIYVaporSupply.com hooked me up with a max VG bottle with 6mg nicotine. For the review, I used the iStick TC 100w at 65 watt, with the Omni RDA built at 0.36 ohms.

I couldn’t really pin down the flavor I was getting. DIYVaporSupply says that it’s an apple pie flavor with ice cream on top, but that’s not really what I was tasting. It has a very slight hint of apple and kind of like a pastry, but not like a baked apple pie. It kind of reminds me of those little apple pies that Wonder Bread makes.

I get a creamy flavor, which is probably where the ice cream description comes from, but it didn’t really remind me of ice cream either. It was sort of “candy-ish,” but not really like candy. And after several hits, I started to get a caramel flavor.

This one is weird. It’s not like anything I’ve ever tasted before.

The Bottom Line

I tried to get the flavors out of this that DIYVaporSupply said was in it, but I just couldn’t. I sorta got a slight resemblance of the apple and ice cream flavors, but honestly, it tasted like something different. But you know? I actually really liked it. The flavor profile of Rogue is so different and unique, that I really enjoyed it.

E-Juice Review: PerfectVape’s Fun Birthdayfetti Cake

PerfectVape sent this to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up Fun Birthdayfetti Cake from PerfectVape.com

Product Specs

  • Price: 10 ml for $4.00, 4 ounces (approx. 120 ml) for $18.49, and 1 gallon for $303.90
  • Nicotine levels: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg

Taste and Smell

If you don’t know what a Birthdayfetti Cake is, it’s typically a moist vanilla cake covered in white frosting and covered in confetti sprinkles.

This smells really sweet and like white frosting, but not so much like cake.

I used the iStick 100wTC at 20 watts and the Veritas RDA with a single coil built at 0.94 ohms.

It has a slight hint of cake, but it mostly tastes like frosting. I do get a combination of both flavors though. The flavor is very creamy and comes through the vapor well. It’s super sweet.

This one has a slight throat hit at 6mg nicotine, compared to other 6mg e-juices I’ve tried.

The Bottom Line

If you like extremely sweet flavors, you would probably like this one. I love sweet e-juices and this one is so sweet that I wouldn’t be able to vape this all day. I still like it, though. It will be more of “on occasion” e-juice for me.

E-Juice Review: PerfectVape’s Karma Strawberry Cheesecake

PerfectVape sent this to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up Karma from PerfectVape.com

There’s nothing really special about the plastic bottle, although I do like the very pointy tip. It makes it really easy to use when filling up tanks. The plastic also seems to be a little soft, which makes squeezing it nice and easy.

Product Specs

  • Price: 10 ml for $4.00, 4 ounces (approx. 120 ml) for $18.49, and 1 gallon for $303.90
  • Nicotine levels: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg

Taste and Smell

I tested this on a Mutation XV3 with a 0.31 ohm coil-build. I used an iStick 100wTC at 61 watts.

This actually smells very similar to PerfectVape’s Dairy Maiden, but just slightly different. I can smell both strawberry and cheesecake, but the strawberry comes out more.

When I vaped this, I could really taste the strawberry. The strawberry is much stronger than the other flavors, but I could still taste vanilla and cheesecake.

This flavor isn’t as sweet as PerfectVape’s other flavors, but I think that’s a good thing for this flavor. This is one that doesn’t need to be super-sweet. The only reason I bring this up is because PerfectVape’s other flavors are so sweet that I thought this one would be too. I’m happy that it isn’t.

The Bottom Line

The vapor is dense and satisfying, which for me adds to the experience of vaping creamy flavors. The flavor is slightly sweet, but not too sweet. I believe that this does taste like a strawberry cheesecake, but could use some slight fine-tuning to get more of that cheesecake taste in there.

E-Juice Review: King Kacti by DIYVaporSupply.com

DIY Vapor Supply sent this to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up King Kacti from DIYVaporSupply.com.

I like the presentation of this line. The bottles have a nice classy label and the bottles are made of amber glass, which is the best glass you can use for storing e-juice because it blocks nearly all UV rays.

I can’t find any information about what this flavor is supposed to be, but I found an ambiguous description on their Facebook page:

A righteously unique and one of a kind vape using the prickly king of the desert. Fragrant and delicious with just a bit of sweetness.

Product Specs

  • Nicotine: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg
  • Prices: 30ml for $14.95, 60ml for $29.95, 120ml for $39.95

Taste and Smell

The smell is very fruity and sweet.

I tested this on my iStick 100wTC using the Freakshow Mini. The build on my RDA is a single twisted coil built at 0.93 ohms. I vaped it at 20 watts.

King Kacti tastes very much like it smells. It has a tropical taste and is fruity. The flavors work well together and are not overwhelming. It reminds me of a nice tropical drink I’d enjoy on a hot summer day. Very refreshing!

The vapor is nice and thick and there’s practically no throat hit at all on 6mg nicotine. It’s a nice a smooth vape.

The Bottom Line

I have no idea what the flavor is supposed to be but it’s got a tropical fruitiness to it. I really enjoyed the flavor of this one and I’ll probably run through this bottle quick.

Ejuice Review: PerfectVape’s Cereal Smash

PerfectVape sent this to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up Cereal Smash from PerfectVape.com

Perfect Vape has been supplying vape shops with their e-juice wholesale for years but has just recently decided to start selling to the general public.

Product Specs

  • Price: 10 ml for $4.00, 4 ounces (approx. 120 ml) for $18.49, and 1 gallon for $303.90
  • Nicotine levels: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg

Smell

It smells just like Fruit Loops. Mmm, delicious!

Taste

The flavor is strong! Cereal Smash tastes just like the powder at the bottom of the bag or at the end of a bowl of cereal. A lot of cereal e-juices have a strong lemon flavor, which people tend not to like, but Cereal Smash doesn’t seem to have that. If the lemon-y flavor of cereal e-juices bother you, you might like this one.

It’s fairly smooth at 6mg nicotine although it has a slightly harsher throat hit than what I’d expect from a 6mg e-juice.

Would I Recommend It?

I would recommend Cereal Smash for anyone looking for an e-juice that tastes like Fruit Loops. PerfectVape got the flavor down on this one. The one issue some people might have is that it’s really sweet and may be overpowering. I personally like sweet e-liquids, so I enjoy it. Also, because it’s so sweet, it might kill your coils quickly.
