deejStuff.com 6-flavor sampler (rolling review)
I'm just going to review the liquids here; I'll review the customer service and whatnot in the suppliers section. For this order, I ordered:
- 50/50 PG/VG
- 20mg Nicotine
- 150% flavor
For this review, I dripped all flavors on a MadVapes vv box mod, with a nothing-special atty. I haven't tried them all yet, so I'll likely be updating all night and possibly more tomorrow morning.
- Cherry Blossom
- Cherry Lemonbomb
- deejBlend 02 Menthol (tobacco/menthol)
- deejBlend 05 Menthol (tobacco/menthol)
- deejBlend 03 Cherry (tobacco/cherry, special request)
I'll start with the Cherry Lemonbomb. This stuff is wonderful; it tastes like candy! The flavor is very, very evident; it leaves me feeling like I have a lemonhead and a lifesaver in my mouth at the same time. Unfortunately, being so sweet, I have a hard time seeing this as an all-day vape; however, right after dinner, it was incredibly satisfying. As far as throat hit (keeping in mind, this is 50/50), it's very nice to me -- very subtle, but noticeable. This flavor is the reason I haven't made it through all the flavors yet. Again, I'd recommend this as a sweet treat to anybody.
Next, we'll move to Cherry Blossom. This flavor is almost as strong as the Cherry Lemonbomb, but not quite there. It has much more Cherry flavor, and for some reason reminds me of a flower (I guess that explains the name). The closest thing I can think of that would compare to this is a sweeter version of the high-smelling cherry blossom candles at Walmart. Again, this is a very sweet flavor, so probably not an all-day vape. As far as throat hit, this is a bit more subtle than the Cherry Lemonbomb -- a very nice desert.
Honeysuckle: This flavor truly lives up to its name. I taste the distinct flavor of the wonderful flowers I used to love as a kid. This flavor, unlike the previous two, is quite subtle on my tongue; however, when I exhale through my nose, the juice really comes to life -- definitely a back-of-the-tongue taste. The TH on this is more pronounced than Cherry Blossom or Cherry Lemonbomb. I could easily see this as a most-of-the-day vape, but I think I'll stick to my Cinnabun (different vendor) in the mornings... for now.
deejBlend 03 Cherry. I'd like to reiterate that this is a special mix, so it was definitely an experiment. In this, I can definitely taste the cherry, but the tobacco is much more subdued, only hinting at its existence. When I do taste the tobacco, it doesn't mesh and mix with the cherry, but comes across as just another flavor in the atty. I think this will be much better after a few days steeping, as with most tobacco flavors I have had. As with the Honeysuckle, this has a noticeable TH, but nothing overly harsh. This is definitely a break-away and evening vape -- enjoyable, and relaxing.
deejBlend 05 Menthol. Oh my! When I opened the bottle, I expected to be greeted with a palatable version of a Camel Menthol or the likes; I was dead wrong. This juice gives off a lemon-like flavor with hints of tobacco and a flowery undertone. I thought I may have had something stuck in my atty, so I switched it out and tried again; the flavor did not change. Just to be absolutely certain, I had somebody else try it, and she confirmed. The bottle is severely mislabeled, methinks, but it is so good! This will definitely be my go-to vape for the next few days at least. This sweet surprise has a pronounced, yet mild, TH. As a final note, I noticed that this juice, much more than the others, sends the vapor rolling out of the atty in clouds. I can't wait to show this off to my vaping buddies at work tomorrow!
deejBlend 02 Menthol. Sweet honey tobacco and a hint menthol great the taste buds, on my first breath, followed by the smell of a flower. That's about as close as I can come to describing this flavor. There's something about it that leaves me somewhat confused as to what it really tastes like. I know that I inhaled; I know that I exhaled; I know that I enjoyed it. What did I just enjoy? deej describes the flavor as similar to 'Brand "K"', but I can't say that I've ever tasted an analog quite like this. He also has this flavor listed under the "Traditional" section, but I would definitely disagree; call it what you will, but this should really be under the "Indescribables" category. The TH is much more pronounced than any of the other flavors I have, possibly a bit too strong for my tastes (keep in mind that I'm a TH wuss), but I would wager a change in the PG/VG ratio would fix this. This flavor is definitely an all-day vape.
That's it for now. I'm going to let the 3 deejBlend flavors steep for a few days and then I'll post a new review of each in the responses. I'd like to hear some feedback, as this is my first juice review.

Reason: Added deejBlend 05 Menthol and deejBlend 02 Menthol
I'd also like to mention that the bottles are pretty -- clear with translucent printed label, and slightly squeezable
Time to update as promised.
The menthols are good and all, but really, I haven't used them much; however, this cherry tobacco blend is awesome! I've been steady on the trigger with this stuff for the past day and a half. I'm telling you, it's awesome!
Also, I've concluded I'm not a fan of the bottles any more; the nipples seem to come off pretty easy.
This cherry rocks.
Just as a postscript, I'd like to add that at the time my tastes were quite tainted by analogs, and I really didn't have any clue what to expect from menthol. After sampling other menthol flavors from other vendors, I've found that deej has a similar flavor, and the smokes I've always considered "menthol" are more correctly "mint". Additionally, I've since had a number of other flavors, but most often, it seems Honeysuckle and Cherry blossom are flavors I don't consistently vape, but often find myself wanting.
Finally, as a shameless plug, try "Christopher's Mix"
