Potion Vape eLiquid Review

Potion Vape is an eLiquid vendor with both 100% VG offerings, called their OrganaTine and a PG/VG blend, called BasicPotion, which is a 50/50 PG/VG blend. They are also a vendor of various mods, PV’s and APV’s, as well as vaping supplies, cartomizers, atomizers, and accessories.

Introduction

Before we begin we urge you to read the interview that accompanies this review. Potion Vape is a very complex brand and the people behind the brand are extraordinary individuals. The knowledge they possess and their commitment to excellence is pretty amazing. By reading the interview first it will provide necessary context to what you are going to read below.

Potion Vape offers two lines of eLiquid, a 100% VG line and a 50/50 PG/VG line. The four flavors submitted for review were sent to us in both formats, which gave us the opportunity to see if the same flavor profile appeared in both. We are very happy to report that they certainly do.

Point of Interest

We believe that the flavor extracts used by Potion Vape, a special method developed by Potion Vape, is the reason why both lines of eLiquid share the same flavor profile. One of the things we noticed in the four flavors is that the flavor extract was very accurate. Elderberry tasted like Elderberry, the coffee and amaretto tasted like coffee and amaretto, and so forth. However, we want to remind you that this review covers only four out of more than 40 flavors. Once we’ve had the opportunity to arrange for a sequel or two we can better determine that flavor profile continues throughout the line. We are very confident that it does continue, but the proof will be in the sequels. For more information on their flavor extracts we urge you to read the interview.

DynamicPotion

We have not yet tried their third line of eLiquids, called DynamicPotion. This is a sort of DIY method where customers can choose whatever nicotine level they want, the exact PG/VG ratio, and the amount of flavoring used. This is an exciting method for all Vapers, and we intend to buy a few custom blended flavors down the road and report back on how well they delivered. This DIY line is something that we hope to see more of in the future. The DynamicPotion line is fully discussed in the interview.

The Two Lines

Here’s a breakdown on both lines of eLiquid.

OrganaTine 100% VG

The OrganaTine line is a true 100% PG free e-liquid where only VG (Vegetable Glycerin). When combined with their organic and/or natural flavors it becomes a very flavorful blend, but lacks the proper throat hit of a PG/VG blend. For people with PG allergies, or people who simply want to vape 100% VG, Potion Vape has done an excellent job replicating the same flavor profiles of their BasicPotion line,

BasicPotion 50/50 PG/VG

The House Blend of the BasicPotion line is a PG/VG ratio for the most part, but depending on the particular eLiquid it can vary.  Using the same organic and/or natural flavors used in the OrganaTine line the BasicPotion line gives you a bigger throat hit while maintaining a flavorful vape.

We invited Potion Vape to submit up to 10 bottles of eLiquid for a Spinfuel eLiquid Team Review and they responded by sending four flavors in both the 100% VG OrganaTine and 50/50 PG/VG BasicPotion lines. While they offer some forty-plus (40) different flavors in both lines (80+ total) the four flavors submitted gives us an idea of their prowess in developing exciting and original flavors, not to mention the necessary skills needed to replicate the same signature flavors across two distinct blends. We would have loved to reviewed more flavors but had we done that this review would be exponentially larger than it already is. We plan several ‘sequel’ reviews from Potion Vape as we move forward.

Potion Vape eLiquid Review in Spinfuel eMagazinePackaging

We’ve included a photo (a rather poor photo, taken with my iPhone) of the label of one of the flavors. As you can see it’s a nice clean black on white label, with a clean font. But also notice how the label includes the customer’s name on it, in this case, Spinfuel. Combine the personalized labels with glass bottles and eyedroppers and you know Potion Vape is spending the money to not only use the best ingredients, but to also create a bond with the customer.

Choices

Potion Vape eLiquid comes in 15ML and 30ML bottles priced at $10.95 for 15ML and $17.95 for a 30ML bottle. These are certainly premium priced eLiquids and to find out if this is money wasted, or money well spent, you’ll have to read our impressions of the flavors below. Oh, and there are various 3-pack sampler packages you can get. A 3-pack 5ML of BasicPotion and OrganaTine is $11.95 and a 5-pack is $17.95. Not a bad way to go to try out the flavors without investing a sizable amount for the 15ML or 30ML bottle sizes, and a nice way to try several flavors.

Nicotine strengths start at 6mg, then up to 12mg, 18 and 24mg. They also offer a zero nicotine option.

The Four Flavors

Potion Vape submitted these four flavors in both lines:

 

  1. Dolce Bellini
  2. Melt-Down
  3. Up and Running
  4. Elderberry Ice (non-menthol)

Review Particulars

The Team – All-Stars

Once again the all-star team made up of Julia Hartley-Barnes, Tom McBride, Keira Hartley-Barnes, Jason Little, and Angel Marie are the 5-member eLiquid connoisseurs who assembled in Stuart Florida (our new digs) to conduct the review. Each member spent 96 Hours with both lines of the flavors mentioned above.

Hardware

We have now begun to adopt certain hardware for all team reviews. Simply put, each member of the team used their own personal mod, PV’s and APV’s, as well as a collection of devices that are kept at Spinfuel HQ. The list will remain the same for the next several reviews. The devices were:

Innokin iTaste 134 (black) – Tom

Innokin iTaste MVP v2 – Tom

ProVape ProVari – Julia

ProVape ProVari – Keira

Atmomixani VapeRev Nemesis – Julia

Triple 7 Magnum VV – Keira

ZMAX – (blue) – Julia

ZMAX (red brass) – Keira

Lambo 4 – Jason

Vision Spinner (purple) – Jason

VAMO v3 – Jason

SMOKTech Magneto – Jason

JoyeTech eVic – Angel Marie

Innokin iTaste SVD – Angel Marie

SMOKTech SID – Angle Marie

Halo Tritons – ALL

Plus: Innokin iClear 30’s, 16’s and 10’s; SMOKTech Pyrex DC Tanks, Glass Vision V-Fates, Kanger ProTank 2’s, Kanger ProTank Mini v2, Vision Victory BCC 5ML eGo-thread, Kanger 510 cartomizers (horizontal single coil), and Halo Triton Clearomizers (2.5ohm).

Viscosity

Both the OrganaTine and BasicPotion blends were thicker than average eLiquids. Although the 100% VG blends (OrganaTine) was certainly thicker than the BasicPotion 50/50 line, both were thicker than any of the past dozen e-Liquid reviews.

The BasicPotion blend caused no problems with any of the tanks, clearomizers, or cartomizers while the OrganaTine blend was too thick to use in cartomizers. Some long-wick clearomizers also took a while to fill when compared to the BasicPotion blends. Having said that, any 100% VG Vapers would obviously be used to thicker juices and we saw no evidence of any damage to the atomizers, coils, etc. that we chose to use. Filling and refilling went slower than usual with the OrganaTine line, but that was about the extent of it.

    WOW! I am VERY picky when it comes to juices. I have easily tried over a hundred different flavors and at least half of that different vendors and I only have about two vendors I keep returning to regularly. My favorite vendor’s juices are ALL excellent but beyond that I’ve really only stumbled upon a handful of juices I would vape again, regularly or consider as an “all day vape”! My flavor profile is more dessert and tobacco flavors IF the tobacco is done RIGHT, which so far my two preferred vendors are the only ones who have “hit it” for me!

    That being said, I received “The Meltdown” from Potion Vape in one of my monthly juice box subscriptions, (The Drip Club), and WOW, was I definitely surprised and impressed! This juice is so fresh, sweet, delicious, you DO just want more and more! I only got it in 12 mg, so I don’t have too much of a throat hit, but that’s ok, between the excellent vapor production in the 50/50 PG/VG mix and the awesome flavor, it’s not really that big of a deal! I’ll definetly be ordering more though and see about trying it out with a little more nicotine to see if I experience more of a throat hit, and just because it’s THAT GOOD!

    Not sure what’s up with the previous poster or their juices, but I’ve had this for about a month now, and I remember dripping a few drops when I initially got it and thinking that it was good and that I was going to have to spend more time with it. I’ve passed it over many times in the next month but finally today I decided it was time for a change as I don’t normally vape fruity flavors and apricot is not something that necessarily jumps out at me when I picking juice selections lol! From now on though I’ll definitely be more eager and open minded enough to see what this talented vendor has and puts out next, vape on!

      Melissa, apricot is a great flavor in an eJuice recipe, that’s for sure. If you like this juice you have to try Hurricane Vapors Apricot Horchata. It is phenomenal! – Julia

    Thanks for the reviews; I’m curious–I bought 3 15mL bottles of Potion (none of the flavors you tried) from the Organitine line, and NONE of them had any flavor to speak of, even after steeping for 2 weeks.

    I have left my bottles in storage for a good month and may try them again soon.

    I was using a spinner/Evod combo, so don’t think it was the delivery that was the issue.

    I know this is a premium liquid and I really wanted to like it, but would you say the flavor is more for people who like subtle flavors? I’m a bit of a flavor junkie and I’ve never had a juice that was so lightly flavored before.

    Any comments about this would be appreciated.

      Anonymous, lack of flavor was definitely not an issue with the flavors we reviewed. Quite the contrary, we all felt that the flavors were above normal. The only one that was described as ‘delicate’ was the apricot flavor, but even that one had more than enough flavor. We began Vaping them on September 3rd, and the DATE OF BIRTH was August 7, almost a month. We stored them, unopened, in our dark eLiquid storage closet. You’ve probably had good luck with your evod but we don’t use them. My suggestion, try their dynamicpotion and ask for extra flavor. I hope this helps. – Tom
