Comments on the packaging
Vapeflam, a French brand located in Aytré, near La Rochelle, is at the origin of two new ranges of premium liquids: Hi of which we have already spoken and Yu which we will meet through the review of the n ° 2 , a flowery fruity, among the three references available.
There are two packs of this range, vials of 50ml to 0mg of nicotine and 10ml to nicotine salts to 0,36%.
The three liquids in the range are gourmands, treated differently by the three founders of the brand, to see a preferential relationship of circumstance, although certainly qualifiable sexist, is none the less fully assumed by your servant.
The price of 50ml which interests us here, is relatively high for a juice without nicotine but that can be justified by the complex elaboration of which it is the object. 21 € is the recommended price in the shop, to which you will have to add the shipping costs (2 €) if you order it online, on the manufacturer's website.
Yu 2 is a "fruity candy" described on the dedicated page as follows, after spell check:
"SHANA and its YU 2 will make you taste a harmonious e-liquid and aphrodisiac !!!!
A blue raspberry and an ice-cold blueberry, topped with a blackberry jam all subtly raised a succulent violet.
I think that there is material to come back later on at least one of these affirmations, before concentrating on a less glamorous but very important aspect of this production: its packaging.

Comments on the security, legal, health and religious aspects
The transparent PET vial may contain the addition of 10ml to 20ml of any booster. The dropper is 2mm at the tip, it withdraws to allow you to fill your juice booster. 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 first-opening protection ring and a child safety lock.
The mandatory and optional information are present (pictograms) as well as a date of manufacture of the lot, a reference number, a DLUO and the full details of the distributor manufacturer. Note the use of several languages (I counted 6) describing the list of ingredients, the precautions for use and the mention "manufactured and distributed by". You will probably need a proper optical instrument to decipher the passages written in very small. The lettering of the useful volume, the proportions of PG / VG and the absence of nicotine are clearly legible.

Vapelier's note regarding packaging with regard to juice category: 5 / 5
Comments on the packaging
The Yu range, proposed in 50 or 10ml sports a similar graphic in two parts for each of the flavors, only their numbers and the aromatic description change.
In front, the background is black, on which we guess a white oblong ribbon shape, variegated shading effects in shades of gray metallic. Inside the loop, a shape reminiscent of a drop contains the name of the range: Yu. Under this set stands the juice number between the letters V and F and above the name of the sign.
A vertical strip of 6mm is not covered by the label, which shows the remaining juice level.
On the back, it is the informative and technical part of which we spoke above which covers half of the surface.
A sober aesthetic, two dominant colors (black and white) with shades of gray, it is in accordance with the marketing rules of the TPD, a suitable labeling, despite a choice of character format sometimes difficult to decipher.

Vapelier's note on sensory experience: 4.38 / 5
Comments on the taste appreciation of the juice
The preparation has been approved by the administrative authorities for placing on the market. The base 50 / 50 (PG / VG) 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, no dye. It is a 0% so we are not talking about nicotine, which avoids double labeling on the vial or via a possible box. However, the assembled aromatic preparation of this liquid, has a substance obtained after synthesis, entering the composition of musk-like flavors, as a fixer, replacing the very expensive natural animal musk.
In accordance with CLP European regulations: Classification, Labeling, Packaging (No. 1272 / 2008) entered into force on 1er 2015, Yu's 2 No. contains "EUH 208 cyclopentadecanolide - may produce an allergic reaction".
It appears that at the minute concentrations at which it is used, this substance does not present a significant risk to health.
The musk itself, of natural origin or not, has never been a trigger of human sexual behavior, only in the minds of gullible and rich old people become powerless, conditioned by convincing opportunistic hucksters, holders of the remedy "miracle" overpriced, and this, for a long time.

Comments and recommendations for an optimal tasting
Here we come to the main subject of this review: what about the taste and flavors of Yu 2 (pronounced youtou), the vape?
On unblocking, there is a slight smell of raspberry and blackberry, not very powerful but realistic.
To taste it is different, sweet without excess, the assembly reveals a measured proportion of menthol, the announced fruits dominate, without any of them being really detached.
The spicy touch is coming from the violet which must, in my opinion, contain the famous Musk Flavoring Agent mentioned above.
At this stage and having ingested only a few drops, a small coughing fit and some sneezing punctuated this first test, I did not worry, it happens sometimes ...
A first pulse live on the Wasp Nano (0,30Ω for 35W) generates a vapor smell rather original, fruity and spicy, I close and draw a first puff ... To be original, this juice is without a doubt.
Is it editing, is it power? Why do I have to cough so?
Another ato (the Metis mix tank) with a new resistance to 0,25Ω, 30W to start, rebelote coughing, I increase the power to 40W, same thing. Not that the taste is unpleasant, in fact it would be the opposite but the punishment seems systematic, even with short puffs, it does not pass (the tests are performed without nicotine at first).
I try on a tight ato 0,8Ω (the True) 18W it's better, I was careful pulling 3 seconds without forcing, but I feel the embarrassment happen and the cough starts, less long and violent however.
Coffee, breaks, and finally I decide to test the case on other guinea pigs (when we can share ...), my neighbor will not take two puffs before leaving in a concerto curses / cough creole, in a sense it me reassure but if I could avoid making an enemy ... I offer him a beer.
Two more of my acquaintances will undergo the test and its expectorant consequences, just like my companion who does not intend to leave me, I reassure you.
None of my male colleagues, the aphrodisiac component was the subject of a comment, I did not have the opportunity to mention any hint, the subject has not been addressed, I will consider that it is a pure advertising affabulation, as is often the case in this field of communication.
Five days after my first try of this juice, I can only say that it is possible for me to vape it on a MTL ato, episodically and certainly not all day (at the rate where I usually vape = 10ml /day).
I'm sorry, because this is the first time this happens, especially since the flavors are well transcribed, consistent with the description, slightly refreshed by a discreet touch menthol.
What more can you say? I did not consider mixing it with the booster provided by Vapeflam, I do not think it would have changed anything.
- Recommended times of the day: Morning, Late night with or without herbal tea
- Can this juice be recommended as an All Day Vape: No
Overall average (excluding packaging) of the Vapelier for this juice: 4.38 / 5
My mood ticket on this juice
How to conclude positively this review? We must consider that everyone is different and that perhaps for you this juice will not induce the unpleasant effects that have enamelled my experience.
I had thought for a moment of these disappointments that I considered to be only personal reactions but the multiplication of people affected by these reactions similar to mine, forced me to tell you about it here.
I do not claim that they will be systematic, whatever the person who will spray this liquid, and despite the score obtained, I have no doubt that one of you appreciates it to its true value. Do not hesitate to tell us about your experience, especially if you have found this juice good and have not observed any inconvenience.
The vapers also rely on you for information.
Good vape to everyone.
