Comments on the packaging
Originally * offered in 30 / 70 (PG / VG), the Black Series Pack Ô are now 40 / 60, and this for the four references in the range. We gain in restitution of aromas at the expense of steam volume but precisely, the interest of these gourmet tobaccos lies in their premium essence, a complex blend of different flavors.
Packaged in a vial of 50ml 0% nicotine, the candidate of the day is a liquid frankly oriented tobacco (a blond mixture both sweet and full-bodied), which you will find around 21,50 €. A relatively high price for a juice with 0% of nicotine which is justified on the one hand, because it is a product imported from Malaysia and on the other hand, because it profits from a particular care of manufacture and conditioning.
Let's see this in detail.
* This is still the case on the reference page of the importer's website. (Ed)

Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects
50ml juice are incorporated in a vial of Unicorn type, translucent PET tinted, a total capacity of 60ml possible. The closure has a child lock and a sealed ring of first opening.
The dropper (pourer) is fixed, with a thickness at the end of 2mm, it is open 1mm and is suitable for filling most atomizers.
To add 10ml to a nicotine booster, you will need to remove the operculum inserted in force around the edge of the top edge of the vial. It is a relatively easy operation to perform if you have strong nails, otherwise help yourself with a flat and rigid object, like round-headed knife.
The labeling is more legible on the box than on the vial, the information they contain is identical and for some, quoted in several languages.
You will find a lot number (batch no ..), an expiration date (we prefer DLUO because beyond the date indicated and because the juice does not contain nicotine, as it has been properly stored, you will be perfectly free to vape it safely).
Also provided are the importer's details, the proportion of PG / VG as well as the volume of liquid, its nicotine level and the warning and safety pictograms (these are not in legal colors and dimensions but do not are also not mandatory with 0%), also present warnings in a scriptural form.
This packaging, which has been subject to regulatory controls, has been approved by the official authorities (DGCCRF in France) for its use and placing on the market in the EU, at Vapelier we consider that it is therefore perfectly appropriate to the service for which it is intended, and our use of it.

Vapelier's note regarding packaging with regard to juice category: 5 / 5
Comments on the packaging
The graphics of the four references in the Pack Black series at Ô are the same. The background color is a very dark matt gray, while the logos and name of the brand are, for this preparation, green metallic. The rest of the information (common to all four juices) is matt gray metallic.
The vial is tinted and the cap black, the whole is a dark character but more class than austere. For some of the information present, you will need to be equipped with an optical aid because the lettering is tiny, the main are however easily readable provided you correctly orient the label to light.
With this box and compartmentalized to prevent the flask from wandering, Pack O gives us a serious packaging, especially since the vial is itself packaged in a zipped pouch. The graphics presenting the product did not shock the zealous censors, guarantors of the marketing rules imposed by the most holy writings of the TPD, we will also be satisfied for our modest share.
Just add that the tinted bottle is not considered anti-UV and that the band left free by the label on the height of the vial, if it allows to check the remaining liquid level, also let the harmful solar radiation to the good preservation of the juice. You know what you will have to do when the situation dictates.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 5 / 5
Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
Without more details possibly gleaned on the web and as I speak Malay very badly, I can not tell you more about the quality of manufacture of this preparation. However, referring to the information on the label, it appears that the base is from PG / VG plant pharmaceutical grade (USP) and that the flavors are food grade. It is also indicated the presence of an additive widely used for a long time by the manufacturers: the sweetener, a generally synthetic sweetener, which brings a sweet taste to the finished assemblies. This additive incorporated in minimal doses does not seem to have significant disadvantages for our use, although it is in my opinion preferable to avoid it, glycerin being natively sweet and in majority proportion for all this series.
On the program for this test, a praline (as it is conceived in the fairground confectioners), wrapping a blond blend sprinkled with hazelnuts (without the shell at least I hope!).
This assembly in the air, on paper at least, very coherent, no real surprise or exotic taste creation of which we could not determine the source or what it is.
So it should be easy for my senses already experienced, to describe the flavors to you in the vape, so go lower.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
On unblocking, a whiff of slightly sweet praline emerges timidly, the first smell does not show the tobacco that one would expect. To taste, the flavor is sweet without excess, the dominant is always the praline. Then, a light blond tobacco makes an appearance shrouded in a hazelnut, it also discreet and more durable in the mouth.
The first vape trials will be done in indirect vape on the True (MTL Ehpro), whose Kanthal coil is new, 0,62Ω (a bit low for this type of ato, I agree) to which I added a fiber Cellulite of our partner Holy Fiber, as a capillary (rather loose in density, to privilege the circulation of the juice).
The 20W at the start were not enough to get a blatant feeling of the different components of this juice, it's a warm vape little powerful (in terms of tastes) and really not definable, but tobacco is present at the end of the mouth .
25W is better, the vape is warmer, more suited to the style of the juice. Tobacco is finally discernible as such and very well accompanied by these golden nuts in the melted sugar.
30W, here we are, the vape is warm, ample and long-lasting in the mouth, the bitterness of the tobacco is totally absorbed by the softness of the praline, the choice and the dosages of aromas were judiciously worked for a result very softly , a real gourmet tobacco.
I will not go beyond 35W with this material and this assembly, I did not note depreciation of quality to the heat but it does not seem useful to me to increase more power, the taste gain is at its peak well before, do not take unnecessary risks (possible dry hit and warm to more than 280 ° C = acrolein production).
Another new coil (Clapton Ribbon SS) to 0,4Ω on the Wasp Nano (Oumier dripper) with this cellulose fiber capillary that gives me complete satisfaction since I better control the use (quantity and density depending on the diameter of the coil and type of RDA or RDTA mounting.)
30W to start, airholes open but quiet draw without forcing, the vape is barely warm, the sensation is that of a greedy tobacco, but I can not formally determine the precise content of the slightly sweet accompaniment that envelope.
35W, the vape begins to heat up, the praline is in its place, the tobacco can not express all its characteristics of which the least pleasant: the bitterness, even at the end of the mouth.
40W bingo! Everything is set up, the vape is finally at good temperature, the tobacco is perfectly accompanied to not leave an embarrassing impression at the end of the mouth, the vape is full and intensities are well made for each of the actors in this room fragrant.
At 45W, the taste quality is always as precise and pleasant, the vape is hot at will, it modulates by drawing more generously, always the airholes wide open, the production of steam becomes consistent, it is personally the vape that I prefer .
Again I will not go higher in power, although this juice seems very well to support this kind of brutality, I do not see the interest.
With 10ml booster (3mg / ml of nicotine), the hit is really not fierce, this dilution to 20% without aromatic contribution does not depreciate the taste quality but I will not go beyond 10ml for this dosage of aromas (personal taste that does not necessarily apply to everyone). This juice is totally transparent and despite a proportion of 60% VG, it did not appear very "messy" for coils during my two days of testing. The volume of steam is in total concordance with the base used, the less you will increase in power, the less you produce and the less you consume (please excuse me this truism).
- Recommended Moments of the Day: Morning, End of lunch / dinner with a coffee, All the afternoon during the activities of everyone, Early evening to relax with a drink, Late night with or without herbal tea, La night for insomniacs
- Can this juice be recommended as an All Day Vape: Yes
Overall average (excluding packaging) of the Vapelier for this juice: 4.81 / 5
My mood ticket on this juice
To finish here, I easily conceive this juice in allday especially for fans of blonde blend and those who want to end the smoking addiction smoothly. Here lies the primary interest of this type of juice and the essence of the vape: quit smoking.
The note obtained is amply justified, we are dealing with a real premium, precisely dosed, worked for a pleasant and soft, allowing a good production of steam and fully suitable for primo-vapers with equipment vape tight or a vape more aerial, in short, a very good juice.
However, I am quite chauvinistic and consider the production hexagonal as the top of what is done on this ball, yet I rediscover this kind (tobacco greedy) of vape with this series dedicated Malaysian, frankly, as a beginner downright satisfied and for to say everything, admiring.
Try, enjoy and share your impressions, I'm willing to bet (if you do it honestly) that you will not find a fault in this preparation, you may even be followers who will forget a bad and dangerous habit with smile, I sincerely wish you.
Excellent vape to you, see you soon.
