Review of the NJOY Artist Collection from Spiritus Vapes



I was contacted by the team at Spiritus Vapes, and was asked if I would review the Artist Collection, which I was honoured to review.

The Artist Collection is an exclusive new line of liquids crafted by five of the leading artists in the vape industry in partnership with NJOY. As a leader in the fight against Big Tobacco, NJOY has teamed up with some of the best flavor artists on the planet to deliver five extraordinary taste experiences.






Packaging.
The Gallary pack came exquisitely packaged in a very well crafted display box, which only added to the overall experience of these premium ejuices.  With each juice individually boxed, in its own little display box. 


Defiantly some of the best packaging I have come across whilst reviewing ejuices. Made me feel very privileged.





Dragonscape | 30ml
Ratio : PG 30 / VG 70
Strengths : 3,6,12,18mg

A truly unique flavour expression, Dragonscape is at once transcendent and surprisingly sessionable. Earthy and smooth, it hints at an exotic blend of Indian spices and Asian teas within a creamy custard of Belgian café and Madagascar vanilla.

Designed by Randy of P.O.E.T. A true craftsman at heart, Randy is in constant pursuit of excellent tastes – breaking all the rules to exquisitely recreate transportive moments of place and time.

Aroma.
This juice has a really pleasing sweet aroma, with the stand out note coming from vanilla. With a custard background, which seems to linger in the nose. A very inviting aroma.

On Vaping Dragonscape.
As you start to draw in the aromatic Vapor, the first flavour note that you pick up on the tip of your tongue is the sweet, somewhat freshing vanilla.  Which as it starts to work up your tongue, seems to develop into and pick up on the creamy custard base, which seems very well balanced and flavoured, even as a standalone flavour, creating an amazing Vanilla Custard.

As the flavour journey continues, as the Vapor reaches the mid section of your tongue, you start to get the earthy very aromatic spices developing, not at all over powering, just a flavour note, inline with a spiced Asian Chia tea type infusion.

The changing flavours seem to be layered as you continue to inhale.  The last flavour that seems to develop, does so just at the back of the tongue, just before it reaches your throat. An ultra smooth well blended coffee type flavour, as before, not in anyway overpowering , just adding another layer of flavour.

As the infusion of flavours reaches the back of your throat it delivers, an ultra smooth throat hit.

As you start to exhale, seems to be where the magic happens, the flavours that were layered on the inhale, seem to be blended and infused as you start to exhale.
The coffee, Asian Spiced Tea, and Sweet vanilla custard, seem to magically infuse to create, what I can only describe as a natural coca chocolate taste, with a really natural sweetness to it, and a real depth earthy flavour. A truly amazing transformation of flavours, and quite unexpected.

Conclusion.
I have been vaping the ejuice for a couple of days, and loving and Vape. A true masterpiece of flavour creation, with such a depth of flavour. Although the flavours notes in theory wouldn't seem to go together well, in practice make an amazing vaping sensation that has to be tried to be believed. A truly magical Vape.

Samba Sun | 30ml
Ratio : PG 40 / VG 60
Strengths : 3,6,12,18mg

Bright and über-refreshing like a cold drink poolside on a hot day, Samba Sun greets with sweet, succulent clementine, morphing quickly to airy yet creamy marshmallow before settling into a burst of perfect ripe peach with a hint of harmoniously layered apricot.

Designed by Jeremy of Good Life Vapor. A world-class drummer turned master vapologist, Jeremy brings his musician’s pride and perfectionism to everything he creates. His flavours are the height of complexity, presenting new notes at every turn.

Aroma
As soon as you unscrew the childproof safety on the bottle, you are greeted with the fresh aroma of a freshly peeled clementine, with a real lite summer freshness to the aroma, a really inviting aroma.

On Vaping Samba Sun.
The first thing you notice as you start to draw in the sweet smelling Vapor, is how refreshingly clean the naturally sweet Clementine flavour is, it really wakes up your taste buds,  it has a really juiciness to it, with a well balanced level of sweetness.

As the Vapor starts to travel up your tongue, the sweet clementine infusion, starts to melt into an ultra smooth and creamy peach undertone, which seems to add another dimension to the Vape. The fresh peach defiantly adds a layer of creaminess, which seems to balance and enhance the sweetness of the clementine. 

This peach infusion seems to be intensified and highlighted by the addition on a slight note of apricot, which seem to add a small note of tartness to the tail end of the inhale.

As it reaches the back of the throat, the summery cocktail of flavours delivers a silky smooth throat hit, with a fresh clean aftertaste.

On the exhale the combination of flavours seem to infuse together seamlessly, to produce a refreshing blast of a summery inspired cocktail of flavours, layered on top of the creamy peach base, the clementine still manages to deliver a solid layer juicy sweetness, which seems to linger on the tip of the tongue, after every Vape.

Conclusion 
I have enjoyed vaping and reviewing this fruit inspired ejuice, each of the flavour layers seemed very well balanced, and seem to compliment each other perfectly, bringing out the high notes of each. I really liked the creaminess from the peach, which seemed to add a real depth of flavour, but without making it heavy.  The only flavour that seemed to allude me, was that of the marshmallow, but I didn't find that this detracted from the overall Vape sensation that this ejuice produced.

Hedon’s Bite | 30ml
Ratio : PG 40 / VG 60
Strengths : 3,6,12,18mg

The perfect balance of sweet, sour and tart notes creates an aromatic, crisp otherworldly apple. Coat with deep, earthy caramel for a blast of flavour: vital, juicy, fresh and irresistible. Finish with ripe melon that resolves on a cliffhanger, ready to dive in for more.

Aroma
As you open up the juice, you are greeted with the sweet aroma, a well balanced combination of fresh green apples and cool watermelon, both very distinctive smells, and both very inviting.

On vaping Hedon's Bite.
I have been vaping on this ejuice for a couple of days, and have found it very moorish, having already blasted through about half of the 30ml glass bottle. Which surprised me due to the fact that I wasn't really taken by the flavour when I first first it.
When I first Vapes on Hedon's Bite, I found the fresh green apple to be the most prominent flavour, which in its self was a great Vape, although a little one dimensional, the overwhelming wave of amazingly juicy green apple seemed to wash over your taste buds, taking them by storm, this flavour seemed to be the dominating flavour as you continued to Vape, which some what left my taste buds searching for the other layers of flavours.

This apple flavour sensation seemed to last for about the first first hour of vaping. Then as I continued to Vape on it, and the the apple flavour starts to settle on your tongue, I started to pick up on the other elements of the ejuice, towards the back of the tongue, I started to get a really pleasing infusion of fresh water melon breaking through the crisp apple, which definitely started to add a whole new dimension to the Vape.

This sweet moist fresh watermelon seemed to then start to come to the forefront on the exhale, not overpowering the crisp apple, but more an infusion of flavours, the watermelon seem to cut through the crispness and sharpness of the apple as you continue to exhale, which when combined produces a really refreshing fruity exhale.

Along with the fresh ripe water melon and crisp green apples, you start you pick up on an underlying layer of sweetness that's seems to start developing down centre of your tongue.  Although only a subtle note, this creamy caramel addition, seems to some how balance out, and enhance the overall vaping experience.  After reading the description, I think my taste buds were expecting a more toffee apple type taste, but this combination of flavours definitely didn't disappoint.
Along with the flavour, this blend delivers a ultra smooth throat hit, along with clouds of Vapor.

Conclusion
Reviewing this ejuice, has definitely taken my taste buds on a bit of a journey, I do find that some juices that I review, as soon as you try them you instantly get the flavours, laid out like a menu on your tongue, and others, like Hedon's Bite, seem to develop as you Vape them, and on this occasion first impressions don't count.  And to get the full flavour sensation you need to let the flavours develop and settle. 
A very enjoyable, very moorish Vape.

Paramour | 30ml
PG/VG Ratio : 50%pg / 50%vg
Nicotine Strength : 3, 6, 12 & 18m

Paramour is a warm hug of sunshine on a cool breezy day. With bright top notes of pear and peach, softened by the embrace of rich, creamy vanilla and smooth custard. A touch of nutty cinnamon rounds the edges for a flavour that feels like home.

Aroma
As you break the seal, unscrew the cap and start dripping you get an amazing aroma of sweet cinnamon infused vanilla custard, a really solid aroma, that I'm sure I could smell even before I opened the bottle, unless that is my mind playing tricks on me.

On Vaping Paramour.
I have been vaping the luxurious eliquid for the last three days, and must admit I am nearly through the whole 30ml, leaving just enough in the bottom of the bottle to finish this review, which when reviewing a liquid, I think speaks volumes.
As i start vaping, I seem to get a homely familiar taste, one that your taste buds seem instantly in tune with.

You first seem to pick up on the well balanced creamy vanilla custard, that seems to glide over your tongue, as you inhale the vapor.  This creamy vanilla base is enhanced by the the addition of a sprinkle of just the right amount of cinnamon, that adds just the right amount of spice and warmth. That seems to bring out the creamy smoothness of the base flavour. 
As the complex warming wave of flavour starts to travel up your tongue, the additional flavours that start to come through really keep your taste buds guessing, just as a good juice should.

After a few vapes I start to get a natural sweetness start to develop on the tip of my tongue, which seems to start working down the sides,  the flavour that seems to be developing is coming from the addition of very natural tasting pear, that definitely tastes like it has been cooked or baked, which seems to have enhanced the flavours and the sweetness. 
This addition of fruit seems to transform this custard based Vape into a luxuries bakery style Vape, that reminds me of home baked pear tart, which has been sprinkled with a dusting of cinnamon and topped of with a good helping of warm vanilla custard.
The full combination of bakery flavours doesn't to come to the forefront until you have been vaping it for a little while, but once it is there, it seems to stay, and is one of the most stable bakery flavours I have tried, with the infusion of flavours staying true even after vaping my way through about 25 ml of it.
This Vape delivers a silky smooth throat,  that delivers just the right amount flavour, with just the right amount kick, perfect.

On exhale you get more of the perfectly balanced combination of flavours, delivering a extremely moorish infusion of bakery style flavours. With plenty of thick thick clouds of vapor.

Combination.
I really can't recommend the flavour enough, if you're looking for a bakery inspired Vape with a sweet custardy Twist, then look no further, and I can't get over how consistent the flavour is as you continue to Vape through the bottle.

Sacré Coeur | 30ml
PG/VG : 50%/50%

Robust yet delicate, complex yet simple, Sacré Coeur begins with a buttery, savory almond torte layered with ambrosial notes of wild field berries and subdued rhubarb. Subtleties then emerge – a hint of aromatic vanilla and a touch of earthy bourbon – the purest possible expression of pleasure.

Aroma.
This juice gives off a nice desert aroma, which lead by the Almond infusion, with distinct notes of vanilla in the background.

On vaping Sacré Coeur
On the inhale, you instantly get a smooth cream base note that effortlessly travels up your tongue, charming and smoothing your taste buds,  as the vapor reaches toward the back of your tongue the flavour wave seems to break, releasing distinctive almond infused crust flavour, whilst leaving a hint of fresh summer fruit on the tip of your tongue.

At the end of each inhale it delivers a satisfying throat hit, which seems to be enhanced by the hints of almonds, with even a slight note of amaretto.
On the exhale the 50/50 blends produces clouds of thick vapor, with an ultra smooth combination of flavours, it seems to produced a baked summer fruit tart infusion of flavours, with a creamy vanilla custard filling, whilst still retaining the Almond pastry base,  on the occasional exhale you also seem to get a little tart kick from the rhubarb, that seems to come and go with each Vape.

Conclusion
None of the flavour seem to explode on the tongue, they seem to be carefully blended together, to create a real vaping sensation of flavour, a skilfully blended desert inspired Vape.
