    Default Scent of an E-Cig (Does Vaping Smell/Leave An Odor?)

    Okay - I'm new to vaping (July 2011) - smoked for many years so my sense of smell may still be 'off.' I know I can definitely smell an analog a mile away now.

    Pardon me if this has been asked/answered a lot, but 'odor' didn't return many results in searching - my question/poll is (because I'm not sure I can tell):

    Does vaping leave an odor in the room (car, office, friend's home, etc)?


    **Comments/personal experiences welcome - not a scientific poll.

    My own opinion is "no" it doesn't seem to; I don't seem to smell it in my car nor in my condo (not really) - maybe some juices I've yet to try do/will (which is everything except the 3 I've tried).

    Not from my experience, only smells I find that linger are from having
    a lot of juice on my desk, my room smells like the fluids, but nothing has ever clung on from vaping, even if it
    Did I often hear my vapor smells like candy, even my tobaccos. So I doubt you have anything to worry about

    In my experience, no....at least not any permanent odor. I've had others across a room say they can smell the flavor I'm vaping, but once you stop it dissipates usually within seconds

    I don't smell anything but the non smokers say it does.
    They also say they don't mind the smell.

    I haves a very poor since of taste and smell - thus I tend to mix flavors extra strong. I have had many friends complain about some of my flavors, especially a strong vanilla flavor I like and have told me it tends to linger for awhile. No one has ever been able to detect any smell when I was vaping unflavored though (which is what i vape at work). So, I would say, it depends on the flavor and strength.

    I've only been at this for ~11 days, but the only one my husband has smelled was called Toasted Marshmallow. He asked me if I'd burned something in the bathroom.

    I can smell some of the fruity flavors, but the flavor doesn't seem to stick around for long.

    lol... I hope this is because you were vaping in the bathroom - otherwise am putting Toasted Marshmallow on my do-not-try list..

    Good to know - so far it sounds like; if you/we were vaping somewhere (pick a place) it wouldn't really cause an odor problem - at least not for very long (if it did).

    I do get the comment about the actual juice odor (the liquid that might leak/spill etc); hadn't thought about that. (Not that it's offensive in any way.)

    I voted sometimes, if it is a really strong scented juice it can linger a bit....I Imagine if someone was using one like that constantly and they were chain vaping, maybe it could leave a more lasting odor.....

    Some juices I have are definitely stronger ones, others I am told by the people around me, that they can't smell them at all...
