Comments on the condition
Bio-concept is a company based in Niort (Poitou-Charentes) in New-Aquitaine. Since 2010, more 200 e-liquids with different flavors are out of its laboratories, it shows at least one thing: the orchestra of professionals to the maneuver knows perfectly the partition, one does not survive ten years to propose of the roughly in the highly competitive environment of the fragrant cloud elixir.
In addition to liquids ready to vape, the brand offers a wide range of preparations for your DiY as well as the material necessary for their development / conservation, as well as that for the vaper.
Recall that the TPD has forced manufacturers to offer any new revenue for sale, after verification of compliance (analyzes at the expense of the designer) and obtaining a marketing authorization for each juice and proposed nicotine rate. The time between the presentation of the products to the officials and the appearance in your favorite shop is six months.
Thus, some time ago, the new range came out: Candy Sweet from Bio-concept, which of course responded to all the usual red tape for the products of the vape. (We are still waiting for the same constraints for tobacco companies ...)
After internal deliberation, only six candidates in their 20s in the running were chosen by the Bio-concept team to evaporate via your atomizers, including the 4 No .: caramel aniseed licorice, a premium that smells good the natural substitute to tobacco and its misdeeds. That's what he's going to be about today.

Comments on the packaging
The Candy Sweet range is tastefully based on candies, chocolate bars and caramelized candies, so it's no surprise that we find one of the elements of the concept in its graphic / marketing form.
The label covers 90% of the vertical surface of the vial, leaving a sizeable level of juice visibility.
On the front the main indications are highlighted, while on the sides are affixed the coordinates of the manufacturer, the pictograms of safety / recycling, the detailed composition of the product, the label OFG, as well as a barcode and a number batch.
In accordance with the PDT, the graphics used do not have an appearance that can attract young people or children, the background colors are dark and the silhouette of the well-known spiral candy it represents, is all in all discrete. Coherence and simplicity are the terms that come to mind when I look at this labeling.

Of EP / USP quality, the base is produced at 100% of plant origin: "organic vegetable glycerin (GV), derived from corn and soy, and Mono Propylene Glycol Vegetable (MPGV) from the rapeseed crop" .
The nicotine base used is vegetal vaping aromas are guaranteed without diacetyl, without acetoin, without acetyl propionyl and without alcohol. It should also be noted that this small family business develops its liquids from A to Z, up to aromatic compounds, dosed by an aromatist.
The liquid is colorless, its base 50 / 50 will be suitable for a wide range of equipment and has the advantage of not clogging resistance too quickly. If you need to add the nicotine booster to your vial, consider shaking your mixture for some time and always before each use / filling. As Bio-concept recommends in its recommendations of use, take care to keep your vial in the shelter of the direct sunlight and if possible in a cool place when you do not use it. For a real appreciation of taste it is in the chapter below.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
The smell of cold, uncorking, is entirely consistent with the description, licorice dominates and the caramel comes in coating soften this powerful smell. The anise is discreet, clearly set back, even at the snack, (because of course, a juice begins to appreciate in the nose and on the tongue, enjoy it, there is no nicotine and you will not no hiccups).
During the first test in MTL (on the True 0,9 Ω - 18, 20, 23W) the arrival chronology flavors is the same, you will have in the mouth and first, liquorice, then a caramelized envelope, and finally the note aniseed.
This order is also that of the power and amplitude of the juice, it will remain in the mouth liquorice and although the complementary aromas are also present, they serve in my opinion to contain the power of liquorice, giving this characteristic candy that can not be found by chewing a stick of this root.
Here again we observe a coherence with the commercial announcement. This juice is however not as sweet as greed, it's a matter of taste, but personally I appreciate this measure.
Little hit at 3mg / ml and a little more at 6 mg, I did not go further in nicotine dosages. This No. 4 can be cold, lukewarm, or downright hot without any taste alteration.
In dripper (Royal Hunter Mini 0,17Ω - 40, 45, 50 and 60W), it reveals a little more power, especially warm / warm vape and airflow not too open. It will also be easier for you to discern the main aromas which you will note the correctness of the dosage.
The durability in the mouth is variable depending on the type of vape you practice, it is relatively durable for a juice clearly dosed to be boosted to 10ml and 3mg / ml of nicotine, beyond a dissolution with 20ml booster, the mixture will have the effect of altering the power and the aromatic amplitude felt in the mouth, despite a vape with high power.
At Bio-concept, we are well aware of this phenomenon, which can put people vaping above 6mg / ml at a standstill, so the team is considering the production of vials of 10ml with nicotine dosages up to 16mg / ml and certainly 11mg / ml. I have this information from the company who told me that this is what has been proposed for another premium range, in the spirit of adapting the offer to suit a wider range of vapers . (and why not, one day, propose this range in concentrate for our DiY, which would make the happiness of the followers of the 20 / 80 PG / VG ... Reflection very personal).
- Recommended Moments of the Day: Morning, Aperitif, All afternoon during the activities of everyone, Early evening to relax with a drink, 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: 4.43 / 5
My mood ticket on this juice
At the end of this review, I have to specify that the protocol allows me, for example, to judge this juice as a potential allday but it is obviously subjective, especially for the one who does not support the liquorice, the anise, on the other hand, fans of the well-known black candy will appreciate the work of the designers of the 4 n ° of this new Candy Sweet range. The bar is high when defying a product such as this one, it is to be precise because missing a shot can be expensive.
The small frenchy company can be reassured on this choice, it is quite bluffing of realism, wish to this juice a long life.
It is also quite appropriate for first-time vapers who want to start with a naturally recognized substitute for tobacco: licorice. The choice of a base in 50 / 50 is also a good point to spare the material and make a comfortable part to the flavor without neglecting the production of steam.
Good luck to you, see you soon.
