    Exclamation Vaping smell???

    Hi there, since I'm a newbie I have to ask this: Does vaping smell or makes the room or place where you vape smell? And does the nicotine content of the juice affect the intensity of such smell?
    I ask this because one of the main good points of vaping for me besides health (which should be more than enough) is the fact that I can do it in my "cave" (room where I work) or in the car with the AC on (Mexicali has 42-44 degree summer days) but I have 2 kids and I smoke but they don't know because I don't want to be a bad influence for them, so the thing is does it smell???

    Depending on what e liquid you get yes there is a smell. I vape either unflavored or fruity flavors. With unflavored no one comments on any residual scent with fruit flavors I have had people tell me my office smells good like strawberries or peaches.

    Edit: The residual smell is not like the stale ashy scent from smoking.

    The "smell" depends on the flavor. There are some coffee flavors that smell like moldy shoes. Minty flavors smell like mints, etc. the only way for you to know fore sure how it smells is to catch a wiff of someone else vaping. I vape a wild cherry that smells like the candy. So does my peppermint. My Ocean breeze smells mostly of coconut.

    Yeah, it'll usually give off a bit of a smell similar to what you taste. I vape in my office at work and the worst that has happened is my boss remarked "it smells like cookies in here!" or someone says "smells good in here".

    Unfortunately my favorite juice (honey) smells and tastes great while you're vaping it, but apparently not if you're a bystander. I haven't been able to detect it myself, but my husband thinks it smells like cat pee. He asked me to just not vape it in the car .. so I don't vape it at work either.

    Are you sure it's actually honey in the e-liq? It is from Krazy Kat's E-liq after all

    I vape mostly flavors that leave NEARLY no smell in the room - including some Turkish Tobacco's. No one's ever noticed Tribeca.
    But you'll have to try and see.
    It's not the nicotine - it's the flavoring.
    The worst I came across was a Root Beer flavor that TOTALLY stunk up the room!

    Yeah, there's a smell like everyone else said. For my wife, some smell fine to her and others she doesn't. Funny thing is, she doesn't dislike any particular type. Some fruity ones she doesn't like, others don't bother her at all. My menthol tobacco doesn't bug her, but orange does. At least the smell doesn't linger for long and doesn't stink up your clothes.
