First off, before I discuss anything. I need to point out the glaring issue I had with the 18ml bottle I was sent to review and this fault carries across all of the 18ml bottles in this range. They do not possess child proof caps with regular droppers. Instead, they rely on a simple cap which can be popped off and on at will. The juice is dispensed through the little pump installed in the bottle.

Popping the cap off and the flavour was announced with a warm, fresh baked butter croissant scent as if I was sitting outside a patisserie in France. The scent is topped off with a delightful, sweet creamy smoothness, the overall scent reminding me of an éclair. I must admit, I did spend a good twenty to thirty minutes just enjoying the bottle note.

First impressions of the liquid were surprisingly negative. The cakey, dessert-like flavours I was expecting simply weren’t there. I was simply greeted with this sickeningly sweet, almost clotted cream like flavour, however on the exhale and retro hale I was treated to the warm, butter croissant flavours entwined with a smooth whipped cream flavour that left with a little sweetness on the tip of the tongue.

Now, with the sheer promise the liquid showed through the exhale and retro-hale, I sat with it, experimenting with wattages and air configurations until it was just right. As soon as I managed to hit that sweet spot, the liquid’s full potential shone, meeting the expectations of the bottle note and more,  the spongy, cakey flavours forming the body of the flavour, the croissant and cream offering the vaper a warm, smooth inhale and exhale before the little sweet aftertaste tops the flavour off perfectly.

Another major positive of the liquid is the clouds, the 30%PG/70%VG ratio of this liquids lends itself to large, dense clouds of vapour. The flavour of the liquid lingers in the room note beautifully and is by far a pleasure to experience.
