    Mine has never smelled like that. I buy Nicselect and Nude. Is it clear in color?

    I've not heard of that company but my freebase or salts have never had any sort of chemical spell.

    I've never heard of nicotine base that is 30/70 @ 9mg. Seems that'd be called unflavored ejuice, rather than nic.

    I have bought a fairly high concentration nic base in PG from them and it's completely clear and odourless. I would contact them immediately via their FB group and explain the problem.

    Maybe its a trace of a sterilisation process on their bottles?

    Any way see what you can find out and report back if you don't mind...as one of their customers i'm interested in the outcome to this?

    Splitting hairs. Nicotine base in diy can be used to describe various things from the really high concentrates you can buy in 100% vg to a base you put together (nic, vg, pg) at a certain ratio ready to add ingredients to.

    I've been using Purnic from Nicotine River, 100mg, it's supposed to be pretty good. However I get a faint odor from it, the best I can describe it is shrimp shells. I know this from cooking and other similar smells. Not chemically, very slight. Multiple batches of the same brand in 100% vg and 50/50, bought within the last 3 months. I'm pretty sure it's fine.

    I honestly couldn't say. I find my nic to be fairly odorless, but like, I don't have the best sense of smell of all time. This seems kind of subjective, I might contact the company about it and maybe buy from a different company in the meantime.

    IDK, it might not be the nic itself, 9 mg/ml is pretty low. Maybe one of the other ingredients is off or something.

    I will say if it's weird enough for you to ask about, I personally would not vape it. IDK. Welcome.

    Nail polish remover is mostly acetone; is that what you're smelling? If so, no, it's not normal. Nicotine base should not smell like acetone. I would contact the company and describe the problem.

    Thanks for Welcome :w00t:

    It is quite clear in color, but it stinks and I have 3 liters :(
    Hare just opened a new bottle from another shipment from the same dealer, it doesn't smell and tastes as it should.
    I pour the 3 liters out :cry:
    Thanks for answers :rolleyes:

    Don't pour then out, the vendor may want you to send them back so that they can be replaced with better nic. Just don't use them, get in touch with the vendor and describe your issue and see what they want you to do.

    I have written to the dealer by email and on Facebook, but they have a reputation for not and respond to people.

    You might want to give them a little more time, due to the new year holidays. I personally, would NOT be quick to dump three liters.

    Yea I agree with the others, don’t dump it. If nothing else it can be used for insect murder, if you’re into that kinda thing.

    They answer others who write but not me.
    I haven't poured it out, saved it if they respond and want to swap it.

    AttyPops Yeah, I type stuff. ECF Veteran

    Nicotine often has a very slight "turpentine" type taste and I suppose therefore odor. But it shouldn't be strong.

    I just took a whiff of the dregs of a 1+ year old bottle of 100 mg/ml bottle of nic from a trusted vendor, and it has a very slight odor. Never noticed it before.

    I've been vaping it for a year, and I feel just, jus ju ffii fine adfdflladfksfll.....

    ;)

    Let the open bottle stand there over night, and see if/how much it still smells badly the next day.
