After tasting Berry Blast Premium E-Juice, Sex on the Peach e-liquid, I was eager to get to work on the next bottle I had ordered from 180 Smoke Vape Shop. Described as a refreshing cocktail with delicious peaches with a hint of mint, I thought the flavor sounded like a good mix, and that’s exactly how it played out.
For me, Cloud Alchemist e-juice is the best e-liquid choice out there. Whether it is their Arrakis flavor or Festiva flavor they all have a sophisticated overtone. Their recipes are delicate, complex and excite the taste buds with their intricate flavors. There is a huge fan base for Cloud Alchemist’s E-juices because their flavors are of a different category than other contemporary brands.

Review of Festiva
The primary components in Festiva seem to be a mellow, fruity, subdued fresh strawberry flavor. It’s sweet, but not overly sweet. This juice is joined by a creamy coconut that also possesses its own sweetness, and a rich, mildly creamy vanilla. While these three players seem to dominate the profile, and they are all quite tasty on their own. There is a wide array of other, more subtle, complimentary flavors going on here.
Inhale and Exhale:
The inhale is sweet, creamy and has almond. Between inhale and exhale, the flavors blend beautifully and no one flavor dominates. On the exhale, It tastes like whipped cream, with a hint of strawberry flavor and a touch of a bakery note. The finish also has a flavor that seems familiar and makes me believe there is a very small amount of tangerine in the mix. When brought together with the creamy vanilla flavor, it will sometimes leave the finish with a note similar to that of a Creamsicle. To further complicate things, I’m also getting a bit of buttery note but from there on out, I might as well be throwing darts at a dartboard with every non-tobacco flavor printed on it.
Nailing down any one of the other flavors in Festiva is like playing a game of hide-and-seek. As soon as you taste one thing, it’s gone a moment later, and trying to find it again on the next vape is akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. One moment I taste a mild fresh strawberry-like fruitiness, and the moment after that, I think it could be vanilla cream. In addition to being such a complex, multi-noted, impossibly layered composition, Festiva is also incredibly smooth, remarkably tight-knit, and exquisitely balanced dessert cake flavored e-liquid.
It’s not often that a juice passes through my hands and leaves me with shoulders shrugged and a little more information than when I started, and I know that’s not why you come here, but to be honest, nothing gives me greater joy than being completely and utterly stumped by an expertly crafted, masterfully blended symphony of flavors, and this juice is just that.
Throat hit and Cloud making:
As I said, I ran Festiva through all of my various set-ups including some I rarely ever use. While the flavor changes at least a little, and sometimes quite bit from rig to rig, I liked it best in a sub-Ω coiled Nimbus atop my Nemesis, my set-up of choice. This particular Nimbus has its intakes drilled to 1/16″, was built with a dual twisted 28ga Kanthal coil at .6Ω on XC-116 wick. While this is how I like Cloud Alchemist premium ejuice, the constant flavor discrepancies mean that, as the old vaping adage goes, your mileage may vary. Whether you use a standard Kanger variable voltage Mod or dripper, a genesis style atty, carto or clearo, any way you dial in. This stuff can handle most any sort of heat you throw at it.
Finally, It is a great experience for many vapers, even those who have tried it for the first time. It carries a nice and engaging strawberry smell and tastes like sweet and vanilla-almond whipped cream. Wow! This juice is really amazing! I would say that if it is your first time tasting this ejuice, you’ll definitely order it again.
It can be concluded that Cloud Alchemists E Juice line adds new freshness in a collection of e-juices. The line has everything for everyone. So, go for your favorite flavors from the line of Cloud Alchemist and enjoy your vaping at its best.

About Cyclops Vapor:
Poseidon: Poseidon was the ‘God of the Liquids’ and protector of anything aquatic.
Poseidon, by Cyclops Vapor, is a complex blend that encapsulates the enigma of the sea.
Ingredients and Packaging:
Melons are at their best during the summer, and on a hot day, nothing cools like a fruity melon. Since the flesh of the fruit is mostly water, it is thirst quenching as well. Good snacks range from the standard fare prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe to scooping out watermelon and drizzling them with flavored syrups. Even desserts can get a pick-me-up from the addition of melon. The ingredients in this 35ml bottle are just pharmaceutical grade propylene glycol and pharmaceutical grade nicotine. The liquid is made in the USA to a high standard, contains only the purest ingredients and is bottled in a sterile environment. The Cyclops Vapor healthy PG/VG option and nicotine levels is a prominent feature of the raspberry custard e-juice.
Poseidon fruit melon is a flavor I hold near and dear to my heart. While I always enjoyed my fruity flavored e-liquids, notably peach and melon blends, it wasn’t until I discovered the first fruity melon style juice, over a year after I began vaping, that I was certain I would never crave another cigarette again.
It was my first ADV, and a flavor combination I still mix for myself to this day. When well made, its perfect blend of sweet, light and fruity with a fresh, brisk finish. When done poorly it’s still not even that bad, but with flavors so clean, it’s usually pretty easy to separate out the merely good from the great. In most cases, it comes down to a matter of balance.
If the two main components, fruit and melon are in a state of equilibrium, as far as the final profile, the result will often seem off. Fruit Melon still has some redeeming qualities, namely the juxtaposition of the sweet, juicy watermelon up against the chilly kool-ade, but with a skewed flavor ratio, it’s nowhere near what it could, and in my opinion, should be. As with any juice that contains a new component, total wattage has drastic effects on flavor.
So while the chilly notes are more pronounced towards the upper end of the vaping/wattage spectrum, even at more conservative wattage, dialing in the sweet spot that delivers these two flavors in a state of equilibrium is simply not possible.
The fruity combination tends to smother the more delicate, familiar juicy watermelon flavor. It’s a good fruit on its own. It’s the same flavor I used for a long time in my version of this juice, but it’s difficult for the watermelon to overcome the bold, vaguely medicinal taste of the menthol.
I vaped this juice all over the vaping wattage spectrum, with several different rigs, but the most balanced flavor I was able to achieve came from the ProVari/510 atty rig at a relatively brisk 8.1 watts or 4.5v on a 2.5 Bridgeless dripper.
Admittedly, that wattage doesn’t do this juice any favors when it comes to vapor production, but that’s where this liquid attains its greatest sense of flavor parity, even if it still falls a bit short of the mark.
When I put more heat through the juice, both on my Nemesis/Nimbus rig and my Duke/Atomic set-up, the result was the same, an excellent Melon profile with just a light hint of the sweet, juicy fruit. Again, this juice is still miles away from being bad, but it simply isn’t on par with other vendors takes on the classic profile of sweet melon vapes.
This stuff is amazing! I have tried a lot of e-juices (gourmet flavors included) from many favorite vendors, and this is in my top 3. The taste never fails to surprise. Easily an ADV for me and I love it! A big thank you to me review it! If you’re still on the fence about Poseidon, buy it now! I don’t know what the crafty craftsmen here at Cyclops are doing, but they’re doing it right! Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about this vape liquid. Try it; you will not regret it.

Use of plastic bottles
Green Smoke is one of the most familiar brands in the electronic cigarette industry, and I avoided them for exactly that reason until recently. I simply didn’t think there was any way the Green Smoke electronic cigarette could live up to the hype or justify the price, which is substantially more than that of another KR-808 electronic cigarette I like, the Halo G6. I finally relented and asked Green Smoke if they wouldn’t mind sending a sample. I’m sorry I waited so long.
Green Smoke Review First Impressions
Upon opening my Green Smoke review kit, the first thing that struck me was the terrific amount of polish in every aspect. The kit comes in a nice looking, durable box and includes various paperwork such as a printed manual, a Green Smoke membership card, warranty information and a coupon for a discount on your second purchase. All of the components have a matching white textured casing and are made from a durable plastic that I believe would resist damage well over time. The batteries are of similar quality; each has a beautiful glossy coat that doesn’t look like it would chip or peel easily.
The batteries arrive with a slightly less than full charge, so you can screw a cartomizer on and start puffing right away if you like, which I did immediately upon opening the kit. Amazed, I looked at my wife and said, did you see that vapor cloud? I had never seen something so impressive come out of such a small electronic cigarette. This was certainly a surprise.
Which starter kits does Green Smoke offer?
The Everything Kit
Quick and Affordable
Our Most Basic Kit
Out of the available kits, I think that the Pro Kit is a solid value, particularly because I always recommend having at least two batteries for your electronic cigarette. The Love Birds Kit is also a good choice if you are switching to electronic cigarettes with your wife or husband, as it’s essentially two Pro Kits with an 8-percent discount.
Green Smoke Cartomizers
The Green Smoke cartomizers have some of the best packagings I’ve seen because each cartomizer has multiple lines of defense against evaporation, leaking and flavor loss. The outer package is made from stiff card stock and wrapped in plastic. When you open the package, you’ll find a foil-backed blister pack holding the five cartomizers. Push a cartomizer through the blister pack, and you’ll find a sticker covering the cartomizers top hole as well as a silicone stopper covering the bottom hole. Needless to say, nothing is going to escape from these cartomizers in shipping.
My review kit included a five-pack of the Tobacco Gold flavor, as well as a five-flavor Variety Pack consisting of Green, Smokes Absolute Tobacco, Red Label Tobacco, Menthol Ice, Vanilla Dreams and Mocha Mist flavors. The Variety Pack is an excellent item to include in your first purchase since it gives you an opportunity to try five of Green Smokes flavors, and I highly recommend the Tobacco Gold flavor as well; with a rich tobacco backbone as well as notes of almond and coffee with heavy cream, it was my favorite of the six flavors included with my Green Smoke kit. When it’s time to replenish your supply of cartomizers, the base price is $16.99 per five-pack. However, if you purchase between four and seven packs, the price drops to $15.29 each. If you buy eight or more packages, the price drops to $13.59 each. So, it pays to buy in quantity.
Green Smoke Pro Kit
Green Smoke refers to its cartomizers by the trademark FlavorMax, which I initially dismissed as marketing hype. However, after trying them, I have to say that I was incorrect. Green Smokes cartomizers are more richly flavored than the other pre-filled cartomizers I’ve tried to date, which is exactly what you want with a smaller electronic cigarette. I was also quite impressed with all of the flavors. The intense flavor of Green Smokes cartomizers may have something to do with a greater concentration of flavoring used in the manufacturing process, or the cartomizer may be a lower resistance than other companies cartomizers, which would result in a higher power level in watts.
I was able to get an average of about 200 puffs out of each cartomizer before replacing it. Although this falls short of Green Smokes 360 puff estimate, I do tend to take long puffs lasting several seconds, and I replaced each cartomizer when the flavor intensity began to drop I probably could have used them longer. I usually expect a pre-filled cartomizer to last around 100-150 puffs, so I find the performance of the Green Smoke cartomizers impressive either way. The vapor is voluminous, thick and full of flavor.
Green Smoke Battery Performance
My Green Smoke review kit included two batteries: a short battery measuring 3 7/8 when paired with a cartomizer and an extended battery measuring 4 1/2. For comparison’s sake, a king-sized cigarette measures about 3 5/16. Both batteries have a slightly glossy surface that feels nice in hand and should be resistant to wear. I have to say that the batteries made reviewing the Green Smoke electronic cigarette a real pleasure because they have exactly the right sensitivity level. I recently considered the Vapage Pocket Pack, and I found that I had to pull quite firmly on the Vapage electronic cigarette to get the battery to engage. Considering the Green Smoke electronic cigarette, I was immediately struck by how easy it was to use; it was a reminder that not all e-cigarette batteries are created equal. Also, the terminals appear gold-plated, which is a nice touch that I haven’t seen before.
While testing the Green Smoke electronic cigarette for this review, I was able to get an average of 139 puffs out of the small battery and 213 puffs out of the extended battery. The little battery charged from my computers USB port in 161 minutes, and the extended battery charged in 241 minutes.
Green Smoke Review The Bottom Line
Although it may be difficult to stomach the $129.99 cost of the Green Smoke Pro Kit when other companies charge half as much for electronic cigarette starter kits with similar components, the fact is that the higher cost is largely justified. Among small electronic cigarettes, I don’t know of any other products that perform as well as the ones from Green Smoke. If you’re looking for something similar in shape and size to a real cigarette and can afford the price, the Green Smoke electronic cigarette offers the best performance available in this size range.
Green Smoke Review Conclusion
If you’ve never used an electronic cigarette before, you’ll quickly learn that vapor production and great flavor are everything. Real cigarettes manage to produce an enormous amount of smoke in spite of their small size and to make your switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes a successful one, you want something that creates a similar sensation in the mouth, throat, and lungs. I used to think that you couldn’t buy a small electronic cigarette without compromising some of that feeling of satisfaction, but the Green Smoke electronic cigarette has proved me wrong. It may be more expensive than some other electronic cigarettes, but if you want something that has the same shape and size as a real cigarette but doesn’t compromise on flavor and satisfaction, the Green Smoke electronic cigarette is the product to buy
A lot of you probably wonder what kind of alcohol is used in liquids found in electronic cigarettes and why is it there in the first place. I have decided to write a few words to answer these questions.
Of all of the vapers I’ve met, it’s only a rare few that tend to take their large devices with them to social settings, tending to prefer cig-a-like 510s and smaller eGo-style batteries. I get it. You’re trying to stay under the radar and avoid unwanted attention. That’s a common attitude among newer vapers, because otherwise, starter systems like the Blu eCig and disposable PVs like the NJoy King wouldn’t be nearly as popular.People don’t want to rock the boat— they’d rather blend in.And, at first, I held a similar attitude.
Over the course of a few years, e-cigarettes have grown tremendously in popularity. While they’re still relatively new, enough have purchased the devices for us to get some insight into the question put forth above.
