Vaping Diaries #38: Orb Vapor Review II

Here’s a review of three organic e-liquids from Orb Vapor: Vanilla Orange Cream, Honeydew Melon, and RY4. RPadholic N8R and I reviewed three of Orb’s juices last November and were impressed. These three were even better — one was very good, one was great, and the last was a fantastic surprise. Here are the breakdowns and steeping notes:

Vanilla Orange Cream: This one was kind of like a grown-up creamsicle. The orange flavor has a natural taste and a light sweetness. It definitely takes a background to the vanilla and French vanilla flavors. Orb’s vanillas are rich and savory, rather than the candy-like flavors used by many vendors. This juice definitely has more complexity than most creamsicle flavors out there. I really enjoyed the subtle sweetness and interesting blend of flavors.

Honeydew Melon: For people that prefer natural fruit flavors over candy ones, this juice is a brilliant choice. The honeydew taste is perfect — crisp and refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness.

RY4: The definition and expectations of RY4 have changed over the years. The original hit was a tobacco e-liquid that was complemented by caramel and vanilla. In recent years, numerous vendors have put the tobacco in the background, emphasizing the sweeter flavors. So what’s Orb’s RY4 like? For me, it wasn’t like any classic or modern RY4. It reminded of Heather’s Heavenly Vapes’ Sludge (formerly Gollum), but not as sweet. In addition to the three usual RY4 flavors, Orb added two more that give this juice a really distinct taste. Initially, I thought it was like a pipe tobacco with a raisin-like sweetness. After learning what the two “secret ingredients” were, the flavor made more sense to me. The flavors blend together marvelously for a unique, rich, and enjoyable vape. While I enjoyed all three of these juices, this one was my favorite.

Steeping Notes
On the advice of Wlad from Ahlusion, I’ve been trying a new steeping method. When the e-liquids arrive, I leave them uncapped for five minutes. Previously, I left them uncapped for about two days. After the liquids are given a few minutes to oxidize, the caps are put back on. The bottles are shaken every day for at least two weeks before vaping.
