Comments on the packaging
This is a premium gourmet pastry chef that we will take care of today. The first of a very recent range from Bioconcept : Greedy (glutton for our English neighbors).
The company Niortaise declines many products for the vape, liquids all ready of course but also a rather impressive kyrielle of flavors for your own preparations (DiY), we will have the opportunity to return to it during the course of this presentation.
The site, reserved for individuals, is equipped with everything a confirmed vaper needs (the section of references for rebuildable, special geek and fade of "clouding" is worth the detour), in terms of pure or proportionate bases, material of to preserve and sterilize your equipment.
The primo-vapers are not left behind, they can indeed get boxs and atomizers recognized brands, as well as accus, chargers, accessories (drip-tips, box shells, cases for batteries ...) and other types of consumables, such as proprietary resistors or spare tanks, all at reasonable prices for what I could observe.
As in addition, the creators at Bioconcept realize the liquids internally from A to Z, in a real qualitative concern, they control the whole of the steps, from the elaboration to the delivery and in control of the costs. This is how they propose us 50ml 0mg nicotine for 14,90 € with the program: Tarte Tatin apple vanilla, absolutely dietary.

Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects
The vial is made of transparent PET, it can contain the 50ml of juice, plus 10ml of nicotine booster (at 20 mg / ml, for a total of 60ml to 3% of nicotine).
Equipped with a first-time sealed ring and child safety, it also has a dropper filling (removable) 2mm tip, which I consider as an end, as suitable for filling all the recent atos.
As all the products in the range have met the mandatory requirements and by-laws, they have obtained their marketing authorization without any problem. A safety sheet is available on request via the contact page of the website. Bioconcept-Pharma France.
The labeling obviously includes all the mandatory information, either for the vial 0% nicotine as for that of the booster (Nico Shoot sold separately).
Vertically, the surface protected from UV rays covers 90% of that of the vial, so take care to avoid leaving it in the bright light.
This packaging meets in all respects the standards now accepted by the profession and the official authorities, no failure to report.

Comments on the packaging
If you follow from time to time the assessments that I bring to your attention, you know that the aesthetic and graphic marketing aspect is, for me, a secondary subject that I sometimes treat a little superficially or slightly, I do not you will not disappoint again this time.
We are in the presence of a colored label with a background probably representing pies Tatin (I put a capital letter because it is originally the family name of two sisters who are the origin of this pie overturned, very good indeed, but which denotes on the part of the designers an annoyed character or at least, originally rebellious to the culinary conventions generally shared by professionals and my grandmother, designing in unison pies, the dough underneath from the rest when cooking).
The concept of visual perspective is easily conceived with the observation of these desserts seen from above which seem to be far away, or closer to the observer, it is perhaps important to note it.
On the front, a pink band contains all the essential information that we need to better perceive what we are dealing with, the coordinates of the manufacturer and the list of ingredients are arranged laterally to the right of the central pink band (visually falsely off-center), as shown in this period illustration.
Every juice in the range Greedy has an image representing a fitted object (a turret or a sign or both ...) at the top of which we decipher very distinctly the name of the range surmounted by its number, here the 1. A female accessory of the hair knot type embellishes this specific decoration, of the same dark pink color as the writing Greedy. It appears that the overall graphic meets the guidelines of the TPD, relating to the prohibition made to manufacturers and resellers to present a product of the vape that can visually encourage young people, carefree of the dangers to get them - Guidelines transposed into French law in date of 1er January 2017 and applicable since then.
Note finally about this conditioning, a strip of 5mm was intentionally left free to more easily view the remaining juice level.
Let's move on to another technical and vital aspect, for us vapers, preparations of this sign.

Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
It is therefore on a qualitative level that we will address this chapter dedicated to the liquid.
Bioconcept uses for its bases, organic vegetable glycerin (GV) derived from corn and soy, as well as Mono Propylene Glycol Vegetable (MPGV) from rape cultivation. This results in a USP / EP quality base.
Bioconcept announces on its dedicated website, manufacturing its liquids with French products: "All the ingredients necessary for the manufacture of our e-liquids are produced in France (except nicotine)". The Origine France Garantie label is therefore present on the labels, it is subject to an annual renewal subject to strict protocol conditions to which the applicant companies must satisfy.
The nicotine base used is vegetable, vaping aromas are guaranteed without diacetyl, without acetoin, without acetyl propionyl and without alcohol. The aromatic compounds, food grade assayed by an aromatist, come from companies certified and worked in the laboratory of Bioconcept. The dedicated website contains, as such, videos showing some of the steps in the design and preparation of juices. Consumer information is in the spotlight, as well as transparency of Bioconcept which can not go of course, until revealing the secrets of manufacture.
Greedy # 1 is transparent, it is an 50 / 50, (approximate ratio that does not include the amount of flavors used, a part of the famous secrets ...). I was told by a communicating element close to the file that the proportion of flavors could vary between 5 and 12%, I do not know and therefore would not say more. Our gourmet dessert will finally reveal the qualities that are expected in the next chapter.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
It is a caramelized fragrance that emanates from the bottle at the opening, the tone is given in the mouth by the sweet flavors of caramelized apples, reminiscent of the taste of fairground apples. The pie portion is not yet definable just like vanilla or just behind the other flavors.
I first try it on true (Mono Coil - MTL) to 1Ω and 3,8V (starting at 12W). The vape is sweet, slightly lukewarm, the general taste is close to the description however, the apple and vanilla are set back against the caramel and pie flavor that is now clear. At 14 W, the taste is more accomplished, always very soft and without a large amplitude, the resilience in the mouth remains quite short, the vape is warm and rather suitable for this type of greedy.
16W, it is for my taste, the good compromise, the vape is lukewarm / hot, the apple is made a health, perhaps at the expense of caramel and vanilla this time, tarte Tatin is in the spotlight on do not touch anything anymore.
On this type of ato and with an 50 / 50, do not expect to produce big clouds, the hit 3% is light, 6% it starts to be felt.
In dripping (Wasp Nano Mono Coil), at 0,4Ω and 3,6 V, I tested this juice at 25, 30 and 35W (for 3,8V) only at 0 and 6% nicotine, to have hit and consider if it affected the feeling of flavors. As often, the nicotine did not alter the taste of this juice, the hit at 6mg / ml becomes more pronounced, with powers exceeding the normal range for the chosen fixture (in this case here from 30W).
25W will be the low limit value that I set myself because at this power, the already modest taste intensity of this Greedy # 1 does not contribute to its full expression. Remember, this juice is a sweetness, nothing aggressive (like a menthol or citrus bright) compose it and if it is useless to rush too much, it still needs a suitable heater.
At 30W we come to discern the vanilla apple and the pie look, the caramel does not seem so present which would confirm its absence in the description. The warm / warm vape with half open vents, contributes to credibility of the flavors announced.
At 35W, this is for me the right compromise, the power set, three-quarter open vents confirms the feelings I had with the True, a heater slightly higher than the standard accepted by your editing will give this juice the opportunity to be precisely in accordance with the perfumes that it is supposed to represent. I have not considered it useful to exceed this power, it is a matter of personal judgment and I do not pretend to give you absolute truths, tastes and colors said, not discussing ... You will be alone judge your settings according to your taste pleasure.
- Recommended Moments of the Day: Morning, Morning - tea breakfast, All afternoon during the activities of everyone, Late night with or without herbal tea, The night for insomniacs
- Can this juice be recommended as an All Day Vape: Yes
Overall average (excluding packaging) of the Vapelier for this juice: 4.59 / 5
My mood ticket on this juice
Greedy, first name, is a gourmet with realistic expressions although really weak. A kind of discreet elixir, all restraint, which may not be suitable for some regulars more powerful gourmands or more heavily dosed aromas. Ladies and gentlemen, do not be formalized, Bioconcept planned this. We saw at the beginning of this review, that there existed in the catalog of flavors for DiY, a large number of different references, among which you will find, exquisite coincidence, an aroma apple, another with caramel, and of course a vanilla and a tarte tatin. What to make yourself and to taste, the juice Greedy # 1 perfect, especially if you have to vaper 12 or 16 mg / ml (diluted with 2, 3 or 4 boosters of 10ml without aroma).
This sample of 50ml is therefore rather intended for gourmets primo-vapers who are content with 0 or 3% nicotine, so it is proposed and recommended by the team of Bioconcept, real geeks of the YY, serving the vape since 2010, so not the three-week-old rabbits, by the way, hello to you, good vape and see you soon.
