I’ll admit that I’ve been sitting on these juices for a while. Chaos surrounds me. My plans never go quite right. Not only that but when I first opened the juices in my surprise FlavourArt package, I didn’t really understand them. I do love when I don’t know what’s coming in a vape haul, but sometimes that plan backfires on me.
As you’ll come to read in this FlavourArt Monsoon eliquid review, this was one of those times.
These eliquids were gifted by FlavourArt London.
About FlavourArt London
I’d never heard of the FlavourArt in any capacity before they contacted me to review these juices for them, but I did some Googling and it would appear that the company has quite the fan base. Originating in Milan, Italy, there are a few more flagship stores around the world now, including one in London.
I think the name is better known for proper DIY juices, using concentrates and other items that I’m just not comfortable using yet. Thankfully, the store sent me some ready-to-vape juices … Not that I knew that at the start.
FlavourArt Monsoon Eliquid Review
So, awkwardly, I didn’t have a clue what “type” of eliquid this was at first. I couldn’t find the flavour with a blue top on the website. My bottle had a blue top but all I could find when I searched for “Monsoon,” was orange topped bottles — what I believed to be concentrates or flavourings. That’s when I started to panic. I thought I had to make my own juice. Like actually MAKE it. From scratch. Using calculators and concentrates and stuff.
I’m not there yet. I’m totally not ready for that. Ahhhh!
You can just imagine the flapping-around, right? I was FLAPPING.
Setting the box of eliquids to one side, I added “Google eliquid concentrates and FlavourArt” to my to-do list, and then went about the rest of my day.
I came back to the box another day, this time taking a good look at the bottle to see what kind of VG/PG ratio it was. I couldn’t find any details on the bottle itself, and I even peeled the label away to check the information wasn’t hidden away somewhere.
This is going splendidly … Not. I’m not having the best week. Month. Year. Whatever.
In the end, I just kinda guessed using the nicotine strength. 4.5 mg. 0.45%. I assumed it was mouth to lung stuff — 50/50 VG/PG or around those lines, especially as it was more runny than thick.
And then, after all that, it turned out I was on the WRONG website … What an absolute tit I am. There’s a website similar to the one that I should have been on (that also sells FlavourArt products), but it’s not the same. All that confusion, all that drama … FOR NOTHING. No wonder I couldn’t find the product I was looking for, haha!
(Sorry, FlavourArt, I can be a real dumbass sometimes.)
I spoke to the nice man at the London FlavourArt store and he told me that the juices were 40% VG, 50% PG & 10% distilled water — a mouth-to-lung ejuice.
I dripped FlavourArt’s Monsoon into the Jac Vapour Series-E tank (also known as the Kanger Geni Aero tank) with a 1.8-ohm coil. I found a whole box of coils that I didn’t know I had for the tank, so I figured I’d put it to good use. It was my favourite mouth-to-lung tank for the longest time and now that I’ve started using it again, it might be my favourite once more.
I screwed the tank onto the Jac Vapour Series-B DNA 75W; you know, to keep the JV theme. The two don’t match in silver-ness, but I don’t care. I really like the combo together, especially at around 9 or 10 watts. I specifically enjoyed Monsoon at 9 watts.
The flavour is described as: “Raspberry & Red Berries”
I half-expected Monsoon by FlavourArt to have cooling agent in it, as that raspberry and red berry combination always seems to have the stuff in it. I scoured the label on the bottle once again to make sure it wasn’t mentioned in the ingredients.
It wasn’t. Luckily, it doesn’t have cooling agent in it. I’d have been mighty peed off if it had, let me tell you. I’m actually bloody delighted to find a fruit, berry-based juice that is totally cooling agent-free.
I couldn’t taste so much of the raspberries if I’m honest. I think the red berries are the more prominent flavour, but it’s definitely a tangy and fruity little number. It tastes like red candy laces to me — a synthetic, candy-like berry flavour. I know that doesn’t sound like much of a compliment, but it is a back-handed one. If you like the taste of those red candy laces, you’re going to really like this juice. If you don’t, you probably won’t.
Vapour & Throat Hit
It’s quite a dry juice. You know how red berries are a dry berry, like cranberries and cranberry juice are dry? (Does that make sense?) That’s the kinda dryness you get from Monsoon by FlavourArt. It’s an authentic berry dryness, but without being harsh on the throat. On paper, it’s not the kind of juice I’d enjoy much, but it’s pleasantly surprising. I found myself actively hunting it out. Like, actually getting up off my ass and moving from my desk to grab the vape from my bag. It’s gotta be a decent flavour to make me get up from the chair whilst in work mode.
FlavourArt Monsoon Eliquid Review – Conclusion
I’m not always the biggest fan of anything other than tobacco flavours when it comes to my mouth-to-lung vape habit. MTL vapes are my actual cigarette replacement — the one I reach for when I’m super stressed out and craving a cigarette. The majority of my vaping time is now spent on light, fruity, sub-ohm flavours. My vaping habit has evolved … for now at least.
It takes a lot for me to want to continually vape with a fruity MTL number, but I did find myself vaping Monsoon quite a bit. (I also mixed it up a bit with T-Juice’s Bohemian Custardy and loved it, but that’s another story for another day.)
Although a dry juice, Monsoon is very enjoyable. A tad sharp with just the right amount of berry-sweetness to help lighten the load, I imagine this one has quite the fanbase.
Would I buy FlavourArt Monsoon eliquid again? Yes, but I probably wouldn’t use it as an all-day, everyday vape. I don’t find myself vaping more than one tank (2ml) at a time, but I do find myself coming back to it a lot. It’s like a pleasant, fruity treat in between my tobacco flavours.
Would I recommend FlavourArt Monsoon eliquid to you? I would, yes, but only if you like that tart dryness. It’s quite unexpected. Pleasant, but still unexpected. I’m not really sure what I was expecting when I opened up the bottle, to be honest, but the outcome was better than expected.
You can get your hands on Monsoon & other flavours at the flagship store in London. Check out the FlavourArt.com website for more details of flagship stores around Europe.
