My god, these people. These nice, nice people. I had some trouble with their Black Friday coupon -- not only did Mai give me a personal coupon code to use instead, she helped walking me through the issue and fixing the problem with the site that caused it right then, even though I had what is comparatively a really tiny order.
Today my order came, and it feels like my birthday. Little stickers and a note on the order slip, four 5ml samples (how did you guys know I wanted to try the milk candy and the sticky rice?) and a little pouch of candies.
At this point, I'm ordering again no matter what the juice tastes like. This place makes me feel special.

I'm really not feeling the hype on this one.
The scent on opening it was unpleasantly, sickly sweet, and the taste was overpowering bakery cinnamon -- bitter, harsh, and powdery -- so I gave it a bath and let it steep for a few weeks. Since then, the scent has mellowed out to something pretty nice, but the cinnamon is still almost all I can taste, and what I'm getting under that is closer to a prepackaged cinnamon roll from a cheap hotel buffet. It's oddly artificial and just slightly plasticky.
I did try it in one of the earlier weeks mixed with Omega, and it turned out as an interesting sort of peach pie taste, but on its own I can't recommend it.
I was a little surprised when I first started vaping this: from the description they give ("cool melon paired with your favorite candy") and the tart, candy-like scent, I was expecting something a little more sour and "juicy".
I loved what I got from this, though -- a slightly dry but smooth, sweet and light menthol-melon flavor. The melon is mellow and almost creamy, definitely closer to honeydew than watermelon. I doubt they put it in but I could swear I taste cucumber in this. It does dry out my mouth more quickly than some of my other flavors, possibly because of the menthol.
All in all I'm definitely enjoying this one so far. Will update when the bottle is finished.
Not feeling this one (yet, at least). After a week of steeping and several mixing attempts/switches to different tanks, it still tastes plasticky and odd, like really cheap artificial caramel. The apple comes through somewhat in the scent when I open the bottle, but I can barely taste it at all when I vape it. Will update after further steeping if it starts being good, but for now, not a fan.
Just opened the bottle after a quick hot water steep and I'm already loving this. I have trouble tasting the sweetness of my other vapes, but with this one it's very clear, along with what is currently a more subtle strawberry and a light, creamy vanilla custard taste with hints of egg. It's hard to tell myself at the moment, but a friend who walked in certainly seemed impressed with the room note.
Will update this after a little more aging/when my atomizer finally loses the last cinnamon taste from a more disappointing purchase. :P
UPDATE: After a little aging and tank-cleaning...this has a slightly odd, spoiled aftertaste that knocked its rating down a little for me. ;;
UPDATE NO. 2: It gets worse the longer I leave it. Don't know if it's just a problem with me or way I keep my juice, so I'm not knocking the rating down just yet, but buyer beware on this one.
Right out of the bottle on getting this juice, it was vaguely peppery/perfumey and unpleasant, and the excellent peaches and cream smell that I was getting off the bottle didn't come through in the vapor. Once I gave it a hot water bath or two and shook it like it had insulted my mother, it improved vastly -- it reminds me of peach cobbler and ice cream. The tartness and juiciness of the peach really comes through on long draws, and although it might be hard to taste at the outset the vanilla starts to emerge more the longer I vape it. I'm still getting some odd peppery notes on the exhale, but on the whole it's a satisfying vape.
