The Vapor Girl is the most ‘eclectic’ e-Liquid brand in the marketplace right now. Victoria’s use of imagery would make Stevie Nicks feel right at home. Victoria’s non-standard flavors she chooses to tackle, like ‘pizza’, have really helped The Vapor Girl carve out a niche in the e-Liquid world as the place to go for a completely different type of vaping adventure. The Vapor Girl even chooses to carry unusual mods and tanks, such as the Sub 2.0 that we reviewed earlier this year. Eclectic? Indeed.
This is not the first review of The Vapor Girl e-Liquids, nor will it be the last. While there might be a particular e-Liquid that strikes an unfamiliar cord with the team there are many more strike the perfect cord. Last year we couldn’t get enough of Victoria’s “Sweet Potato” vape, but the apprehension we all felt before filling a clearomizer was palatable. “Sweet Potato?” Turns out it was, and remains to be one of our favorite e-Liquids, especially for those times when we can’t find the right flavor for an evening vape.
A Special Review
During the month of July, our annual ‘July is eJuice Month’ we set out to review between 4 and 6 flavors from as many of our favorite vendors as we can. In this review there are 10 flavors, 4 more than the others. The reason is that we had scheduled a Vapor Girl review for early June and then decided to bump it to July. The Vapor Girl was absolutely going to be in the July celebration, so having a review in June and then again the next month seemed to be a bit unfair. So, the 10 flavors we were set to review are now appearing here, in our July celebration.
Some of the e-Liquid flavors sound like they would be marvelous interpretations of traditional foods in vapor form, like Southern Style Banana Pudding, and Pink Moo, while others sound as like a mad scientist has been set loose in North Carolina. Pizza is one thing, but a vape called “Gazpacho”? Really?
We think many of you will be surprised by the review that follows, others…well…others who have been huge fans of The Vapor Girl for a very long time will probably think ‘Gazpacho’ doesn’t seem all that weird.
Here are the e-Liquids The Vapor Girl has submitted for review:
- Strawberries and Champagne
- Marcboro Tobacco
- Pink Moo
- Sweet Tart Blueberry
- Iced Caramel Latte
- MNT. Dewdrops Raspberry
- Menthol Tobacco
- Banana Pudding – Southern Style
Is that a list or what?

The Review Particulars
Assorted hardware, both batteries and attachments, were used throughout the review period. Because we reviewed all ten flavors we felt it necessary to bump the normal 72-hour period to 96-hours in order that all of the flavors could be thoroughly evaluated. For instance, some e-Liquids, by any vendor, are terrific morning vapes but are not that great in the middle of a hot afternoon. The whole purpose of spending time with each flavor, for each vendor, is to discover as much about each one as we can.
We strongly believe that to record yourself vaping a new e-Liquid and giving your impression of it is probably the worst way to review an e-Liquid.
As a viewer you have no idea what the reviewer was vaping prior to the video. Did it cause his or her taste buds to alter the perception of the e-Liquid being reviewed? What time of day was it? Is it a morning vape, afternoon vape, desert vape? I could go on, the point being is that is someone is going to offer an opinion on any e-Liquid that person should offer an informed opinion. That person needs to vape the e-Liquid at various times of the day, under various circumstances, with an unclouded palette. This is why our e-Liquid reviews are so long, and require a 5-member team to do an e-Liquid justice. There is much more to an e-Liquid flavor than a first drag.
There are factors in determining the ‘score’ of an individual e-Liquid. Having said that, those factors have to be considered under various environments. In order for a “flavor” factor to earn 5 stars (our highest score), the flavor must be a terrific flavor under any condition. Is it a good flavor first thing in the morning? How about mid-day? Does it hold together in the evening? All of these things must be taken into account.
Other factors that determine a score are the amount of vapor that can be enjoyed in various e-cigarettes, and is it an overall satisfying ‘vape’.
A Word About Throat Hits – There are too many things that can affect the throat hit, from nicotine levels to the type of battery or eJuice delivery devices (carto, clearo, tank), and even the time of the day and the amount of vaping the person has done before trying out the new e-Liquid flavor.
Where our own scores for the “Throat Hit” becomes an unfair factor is when you can be led to believe that a certain e-Liquid flavor delivers a great throat and you decide to order it based on our review. Did you order the same PG/VG ratio that we used? Is the nicotine level the same? Are you going to vape with the same hardware we use? All of these things play a part in determining the throat hit for e-Liquid, and it is impossible to say whether you will experience the same throat hit that any member of the team experienced.
Beginning in this review we will no longer use the Throat Hit score when determining whether or not that e-Liquid should earn a Spinfuel Choice Award. We will still let you know what are experience was with respect to the throat hit, but even an e-Liquid completely absent of a throat hit could earn a Choice Award is everything else earns the top score.
Something else to keep in mind – Our job with a Spinfuel e-Liquid Review is not to talk you into buying an e-Liquid. Our job is to bring new brands, new flavors, and new experiences to you so that you can decide for yourself whether or not you want to travel down that road. Our team consists of five individuals with five different styles of vaping, and five different palettes for e-Liquid flavors. It is up to you to decide if the e-Liquid we review is worth your time and your money.
Our Newest Member – Nichole – Before allowing Nicole to join the team we interviewed seven others. We chose Nicole for her knowledge about ‘flavor’. Nicole is a trained pastry chef, and she has been vaping for two years. She is most certainly an e-Liquid connoisseur, and she understands and appreciates menthol as well. (Finally!) Nicole is a very qualified reviewer on the Spinfuel Team who, like the rest of us, will work hard to discover if a brand, or even a single flavor from that brand, is worthy of your money and your time.
