Puff Cigarette's Next line of flavorings have been a big hit with me. The three tobaccos have similar characteristics, and I've enjoyed all of them.
I've got two of these left to review, and the remaining subjects are non-tobaccos. Up today is Next #313, which is their fruit flavor. That's about as good as I can do on the description, as Google translate just provides "fruity" for the description on the item page.
This juice looks just like its stable mates, which is to say that it is a very dark caramel shade. Dark, dark brown. These are zero nic flavorings intended to be mixed 50/50 with your nic base. The Next flavorings are 50PG/50VG, so I just mix it half and half with my PG nic. I mixed this particular sample three or four weeks ago, so it has had plenty of time to ferment.
I will be vaping this 25 mg 75PG/25VG juice at 3.7v on my Bombshell with a 1.5 ohm Cisco atty.

Today I have the last of the Puff Cigarette Next tobaccos, Next #165. Described by Puff as "smooth tobacco", I am expecting a lighter rendition of their tobacco profile.
If you haven't read the previous Next reviews I've done, these juices are more about burnt caramel than they are tobacco, but they're one of those formulas that capture the analog feel through performance and smoke and mirrors trickery that leads your brain into thinking tobacco when you vape them. I like these, very much, however they are not going to be for everyone.
These are zero nic flavorings in a 50/50 base suspension, but like most flavorings, they aren't meant to be mixed at a 10-20% ratio. I mix these 50/50 with my 50mg/ml PG nic to get a resulting 25mg 75PG/25VG blend. The resulting juice is dark. Really dark. I can't unequivocally state that these Next liquids are atty killers, but I suspect them to be. Again, I don't want to condemn these liquids by stating that they'll fry your attys, but I've been really hard on attys lately, and I've been vaping a lot of these super dark juices.
So without further adieu, let's take this 25mg 75/25 blend into The Lab, where I will vape it at 3.7v on my Bombshell with a 1.5 ohm Cisco atty.
I live for opportunities to evaluate obscure product. When I was contacted by an Italian reader about getting some juice from Italian vendor Puff Cigarette, without hesitation I said please and thank you.
He put me in contact with the company, and after a while I got a DHL delivery from them. Included were thick lab specs and material safety data sheets for these Italian-made juices. I can tell you that the flavoring I am reviewing today, #117, contains only five ingredients and meets all kinds of Euro health standards certifications.
Next juice is zero nic and double flavored. You could vape it straight, but I think most of us are going to mix it 50/50 with our base. In my case, I mixed my samples 50/50 with 50mg/ml PG nic, for a resulting 25mg juice. I let these sit for a week before I tried them, and I've been vaping them for a few days now.
Puff describes #117 as "gusto tobacco intenso", which I translate as "robust, intense tobacco". Sounds like they made it just for me. Let's get this super cool unknown quantity into The Lab and put it to work.
My sample is 25mg with approximately 75%PG/25%VG. I will be vaping this juice at 3.7v on my Bombshell with a Cisco 1.5 ohm atty.
Italian vendor Puff Cigarette made a big splash with Next #117, garnering the first ever Vapenstein It's Alive! Award for a flavoring concentrate. I loved the burnt caramel note of the resulting juice, and I found the performance of the 75PG/25VG blend very satisfying in terms of performance. It was one of those juices that had no trace of tobacco to it, but satisfied in a very tobacco-like manner. I like it very much and have almost used up my small supply.
Today's specimen is Next #169, another of their tobacco flavorings that is described by them as "gusto tobacco rotundo". Hmmm, enjoy round tobacco or enjoy fat tobacco? In any event, it sounds like another robust tobacco vape, and I'm always up for that.
I mixed this juice, which I believe is already a 50/50 blend, 50/50 with 50mg/ml PG nic, so the resulting liquid should be approximately 75PG/25VG and 25mg. I usually mix 20mg, and I really should start knocking that down to 16-18mg, but I always vape 24-25mg in the morning.
I will be vaping Next #169 at 3.7v on my Bombshell with a fresh 1.5 ohm Cisco atty.
Honestly, having no love for FlavourArt I just never saw myself getting into DIY, at all. A combination of a couple of juices I liked being available in flavoring concentrate form and NicVape running 50% off in December led me to buy some nic and flavorings and the next thing I knew I was mixing my own juice.
You guys know I love cigar and pipe blends. So when I saw that Vapure had a cigar flavoring concentrate I ordered 10ml to check it out. I had previous experience with Vapure all-VG juice, and it was a mixed bag. The non-tobaccos were good, but not compelling, and the tobacco vape I had from them was just plain comical.
I received my 10ml of Fine Cigar flavoring, packaged in two 5ml bottles, and I mixed up 6ml at 15% flavoring concentration and let it sit a week. I also made a blend of Vapure Fine Cigar at 10% concentration with some homemade tobacco extract I had sitting around.
So let us now adjourn to The Lab, where we will examine these 20mg 75PG/25VG test subjects with more diligence. I will be vaping these specimens at 3.7v with a LR atty on my Bombshell.
