Comments on the packaging
The number 1 of a range recently proposed on the market is called Hi (say hay in English), it means hi and so that's what I'm going to make friends readers: greet you.
The company that manufactures and distributes this range is called VapeFlam, it is located in the Poitou-Charentes region in Aytré, a village near La Rochelle.
Administered by four "funny ladies", this brand has recently (early 2017) reoriented to an original production of premium liquids and now has 13 products divided into 3 ranges.
The tariff position of VapeFlam is quite high, in line with the displayed quality of assemblies that you probably will not find everywhere but surely on the site indicated in connection with this evaluation.
The site will also undergo changes due to the evolution of offers now proposed, but it remains functional at the time I write this review.
Le Hi 1 is a premium focused blond tobacco, vanilla, popcorn, said like that, for sure, it's not very glamorous; Here is the description given to us by the team at the controls:
"A specially selected blend that is subtle and harmonious. Between a blond tobacco and a gourmet sweetness in the mouth. A romantic vanilla accompanied by its nuggets delicately golden popcorn. A pure moment of happiness that can be enjoyed all day.
We must recognize that it is much less abrupt and more surely close to the reality felt by steaming this greedy tobacco, we will return.
It is packaged in vials 50ml to 0% nicotine is a 50 / 50 reluctant to misting a 3 puffs concourse but surely dedicated to the pleasure of nostalgic taste former smoker or ex-smoker future .

Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects
VapeFlam is currently manufacturing and packaging its production by a duly accredited professional laboratory for the elaboration of e-liquids. All the proposed juices have met the requirements and controls of the official bodies which granted them an individual marketing authorization.
The PG / VG base is of plant origin and pharmacological grade (USP / EP), the flavors used are food grade and do not contain harmful substances such as diacetyl, no added purified water, no alcohol, nor dye. It is a 0% so we are not talking about nicotine, which avoids double labeling on the vial or via a possible box.
The mandatory and optional information is present as well as a date of manufacture of the lot which serves as a reference number, a DLUO and the full details of the distributor manufacturer. Note the use of several languages (I counted 7) describing the list of ingredients, the precautions for use and the mention "manufactured and distributed by".
The clear PET vial may contain the addition of 10ml any booster. The dropper makes 2mm at the tip. It's up to you to protect your bottle from the sun's rays, the label is compact but does not cover the entire potentially exposed surface. The stopper is provided with a sealed ring of first opening and a child safety. We made the tour is a faultless come back in the second week thank you and good evening to you studios (without the commas to Guy Lux *).

Vapelier's note regarding packaging with regard to juice category: 5 / 5
Comments on the packaging
The 50ml vials have the advantage of presenting an appreciable labeling surface in comparison with the 10mls, it is thus possible to find either more mentions or readable writings, or the two previous examples at the same time. Range Hi, only proposed in 50ml, displays a similar graphic for each of the flavors, only their numbers change.
The bottom is anodized aluminum color, on which in front, we guess an oblong ribbon shape, variegated colorful effects with metallic shades yellow, green and anthracite gray not to say black.
Inside the loop, a shape reminiscent of a drop contains the name of the Range: Hi. Below this set stands the juice number (1) very stylized in the manner of a sharp point and sharp. A classy graphic design that is appropriate to the rules imposed by the TPD on labeling that can encourage young people to buy products of the vape. On the back, we talked about it, are arranged in several languages the mandatory and optional mentions. In general, you will not need an optical instrument to access information written in black on an aluminum background, with the exception, however, of decryption in 7 languages of these 4 words: "manufactured and distributed by", located under the logo of the brand, which only requires a simple scanning electron microscope (or the attentive reading of this review).
90% of the vertical surface of the vial is covered by this label, which leaves a control band of remaining juice level of 5mm wide. So ends our review of packaging details, let's go to the vape.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 5 / 5
Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
When you open the bottle, it is very distinctly a smell of blonde blend typically US that emerges, a sweet blond tobacco which it is not obvious to determine the origin greedy, without the prior knowledge of the ingredients. Popcorn at this stage, has not yet expressed its presence (for my olfactory abilities).
To taste the delicious flavor takes over and completely annihilates the potential pungency of raw tobacco, the set thus provides a mild flavor, slightly sweet and popcorn made a timid appearance, feeling certainly conditioned by knowledge its existence rather than its particular taste (I prepare relatively often and know the subject well).
A first assembly on the Wasp Nano (dripper MC) allows me a direct burst of steam, without the top-cap, for a basic humage. I immediately confirm the description of the juice, it is a gourmet tobacco, vanilla does not occupy a preponderant place, the corn has finally burst even if it is not a major player in the feeling.
In the vape, it's official, the correspondence with the succinct statement quoted at the beginning of this review is flagrant.
Here is how, with my sensitivity of omega male (a kind of gus who has passed the age to take the lead with his fellows), I will describe this umpteenth liquid tobacco. A typically feminine softness, nuanced and yet realistic, the tobacco giving up its roughness by the felted presence of the vanilla, which far from competing it, makes it affordable for all the sensibilities. The popcorn as for him, interferes in all discretion, the amateurs will have to play on the material settings to give it a greater capacity taste.
It is a juice that produces a significant sum of steam for an 50 / 50, the hit 3% is light, 6% it becomes correct and gives full measure to the mission of a tobacco: that of being a good substitute for cigarettes.
- Recommended power for optimal taste: 35 / 40 W
- Type of vapor obtained at this power: Dense
- Type of hit obtained at this power: Light at 3%, Satisfying 6%
- Atomizer used for the review: Wasp Nano
- Value of the resistance of the atomizer in question: 0.4Ω
- Materials used with the atomizer: Kanthal, Cotton
Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
Let's start with the dripper vape (mono coil for the occasion). 0,4Ω (Kanthal) for (between 3,2 and 4,04V) and successively 25, 30, 35 and 40W.
25W seems really low limit to this resistance value, the vape is warm if you pull moderately're not too open (AFC), the overall flavor is still a greedy tobacco, sweet but not defined regarding its compounds aromatic, it would be my pity to stay at this setting.
30W is already much better, more convincing in terms of taste, you can afford an aerial vape and long puffs to stay in warm vape, it is however a little powerful juice that supports the hot vape. Either you increase the power, or you close the air intake vents a little.
35W always this resistance value is for me the best compromise, vape warm / hot not fully open, puffs, flavors finally acquire their amplitude, define the main tastes more precisely, the length in the mouth begins to become notable.
40W is still very suitable for lovers of hot flashes and long vape, as 35W aromatic quality has reached its most successful expression, by tweaking the settings on this power range you should get the best of this liquid.
Higher up in this configuration, it's a matter of personal taste, I have not managed to find a compromise settings allowing me to enjoy this juice to my liking. In addition, in dripper, the dry hit does not forgive these power values, the risk is still high to get a dirty dose of acrolein and finish the tasting with a good coughing fit, I don ' learn nothing from the initiates, but just warn the neophytes.
Vaper the Hi No. 1 on a tight ato is quite possible, it is even very desirable as this softness is adapted to the hot vape. With True (MTL) rebuildable, handy for an evaluation experience, so I tried the vape in 2 time to tell you the great satisfaction it can provide with the appropriate settings. Stay on the values of powers recommended by the manufacturer, for resistance you use, start with the lowest, act on the AFC, you will adapt your vape to your feelings more enjoyable. This type of ato will give you a vape close to the draw of your old cigarettes, the flavors of this Hi with a little nicotine booster will do the rest.

My mood ticket on this juice
It seems that these ladies from vapeFlam have understood everything about the need to offer a liquid able to effectively help people wishing to wean themselves off of tobacco smoothly, while retaining sensations close to old habits. In concert, they have developed with a competent lab, a serious candidate for this purpose, they are here rewarded because this deserved note is only the reflection of a happy reality. It will be objected that it is a sweetness more suited to female customers, certainly and after? Some of us who smoked filterless brunettes came through the vape to supplant their addiction. If at one time we could find juices approaching a little bit the taste of these cigarettes, today is another matter, it does not prevent more and more people from finding with the vape, the means the more radical to stop. In addition, women still represent a significant proportion of smokers who want to end their addiction, n ° 1 could very well become their best ally for doing this.
Long live VapeFlam, his crew with skirts and his productions that have not finished surprising us.
Good luck to all, see you soon.
