Essence E-Liquid Intro
We were kindly sent some new premium e-liquids by a German e-liquid start-up called Essence Liquid. With my brother and I being based in Germany and being half German, we were very eager to try some new premium German e-liquid!
Essence Liquid hasn’t launched their range as yet, but you can sign up for a 25% coupon code on their site for when their e-liquids do launch.
About Essence E-Liquid
Here is a little synopsis of what they are about how the Essence e-liquid range came to life:
“Essence was brought to life by two guys who discovered the love for vaping just some time ago. It didn’t take too long until they have been tired of the same old liquids & flavours offered in the local stores.
And so they decided to try and come up with something more interesting and enjoyable, mostly for their own pleasure. After taking a pretty serious and almost scientific approach to finding and creating the best flavours they possibly could, combined with a long period of trial and error, testing and refining, they eventually had 5 finalists that met their criteria. Since the liquids have been very well received by family & friends they’ve been encouraged to offer them to a wider range of people and that’s when Essence was born.
The small lab that was thereafter created in the heart Bavaria’s capital – Munich – is set out to produce small quantities of high quality e-liquid. Offering a pleasant experience for quality vaping moments is paramount to Essence.” Christoph Buchner – Co-founder of Essence Liquids Germany
Packaging and Bottle Design
The packaging and bottle design was stunning (see pics below). The glass bottles are visually very striking and the labeling is nice and clear (the ingredients and safety notes are in German). The bottles come with a nice child proof lid and a nice glass dripper for easy filling of tanks and for dripping onto RDAs etc.
Our E-Liquid Review
This was one of our favourites of the 5 flavours we tried. This was a very subtle tobacco taste with a nice sweet honey taste. The tobacco taste is quite a light one, which we really liked and infused with the sweetness from the honey, was absolutely delicious.
Green Tea Lemon
This was another really nice flavour. The lemon flavour is a sweetish lemon as opposed to a sour lemon taste. This combined with hints of green tea made for a really nice vape.
We are usually not big fans of menthol flavours, but this one surprised us. It’s a nice refreshing menthol/peppermint kind of taste, which is not too strong as it is combined with the sweet tobacco and honey flavours. This one was a nice refreshing vape without tasting too overwhelmingly mentholy.
We usually love fruity blends, but unfortunately this one did not quite hit home. I think it might have been the Guava, which came across a little sour/bitter and flowery. We couldn’t quite work out if we liked it or not, but the smell afterwards is quite strong and sickly. We couldn’t quite decide on whether or not we liked this flavour, but overall there was a bit too much going on in this one.
This is another delightful blend. You get a nice subtle flowery hibiscus taste on inhale and on exhale you get that nice sweet vanilla flavor coming through. Again this was a really enjoyable vape.
Overall we were very impressed with these premium German e-liquids. I have no clue what they are going to be priced at, but I would definitely look at getting some more. The blends were really interesting and unique and the flavours worked really well together.
We tried one or two flavours in 0mg on our sub ohm tanks and the rest in 0.7mg on other clearomizers. The 0.7mg of nicotine hit really hard with a nice big throat hit. To us it felt slightly stronger than 0.7mg (perhaps we have been vaping 0.3mg for too long!). We would love to see a 0.3mg nicotine option for sub ohm vaping and dripping with RDAs etc., but apart from that we were really impressed!
A big thank you to Christoph over at Essence Liquids for sending us the e-liquids, and if you are based in Europe, be sure to check out their website below. We wish Essence E-liquids the best of luck going forward!
