    So I went to the shop around the corner to get fluid and I got the hype collection cotton candy, and I was stoked to finally get my new fluid and I opened it and smelled it and it smells horrible like rotten cantolope and I have no idea what the cause is, i put it in my tank with a brand new coil and it taste just as bad could anyone help me understand what could be wrong with it ?

    Taste is subjective. I'd say try some different fluid. Taste testing is good if they allow it.

    Welcome @Tunap18 and I hope you enjoy your stay!

    First off it it smells bad never put it in a tank because what will it taste like after your cook it? Bring it back because it may be contaminated or spoiled. Shit happens although it is a rarity.

    I saw this thread title and first thing that came to mind was you might want to change your diet ;) NO MORE ASPARAGUS!

    There are plenty of commercial juices that I've bought in the past that smelled like el-crappo, and immediately in the bin they went.

    Maybe Texas is a bit different than other places but most of our shops around here allow for tasting before purchase. We have a few that don't so I avoid those unless I know what exactly I want. Call around to some other shops and see if they do something similar. That way you know what you are getting and what it taste like.

    Bad smelling juice is generally a pretty good indicator of what it will taste like.

    What’s in the tester is going to be from a different bottle. I’ve had the juice before and it has a very distinct smell; overly sweet and nothing like rotten fruit. I’m willing to bet something is wrong with the bottle. There is probably no chance of a refund or exchange but I wouldn’t be hold it against the store if they are an otherwise good business. Final sales on ejuice is pretty standard for vape shops.

    It smelt sweet and great when I took off the top but I want a little more of the smell and squeezed the bottle slightly and it was just bad I've never had a problem from that shop before they have great service and they're good people just must've got a bad batch, but thank you for your replies I appreciate it and I'm probably going to smell the juice before I leave the shop from now on

    I have a bottle of POET Spiced Bourbon. Smells like heaven, taste like a rave urinal around 4AM. Other people vape it just fine when they come over but it hits my taste buds and just wrecks me. Keep going back to it thinking I will warm up to it only to find its hated more each time.

    You likely got a bad bottle or one that has gotten hot/cold a bunch of times or was just a bad batch. Ive had bottles of liquid rainbows until they were left in my car for several hours. Cant imagine what days/weeks/months in the warehouses, overseas shipping containers and UPS trucks could do if it were a particularly delicate liquid.

    Ok here my issue....I recently won a contest...nice setup plus 275ml of juice of my choosing...well I picked an apple pie flavor...I took home the mod I won and couple days later I picked up the juice....it was pretty dark colored...I opened took a smell and though "that's your apple pie"..took it home placed in man cave for a couple weeks now and I'm telling you it does not smell anything like an apple pie...to me it's some dollar store cleaner type of smell, finger taste is not good either. Have not put in tank to vape...Do I bring back to shop where I won it and ask to have it replaced,drop it off and say here you can have your so called juice back or do a video of pouring 275ml of juice down the drain? I understand I won it, it was free but if you run a contest and you give juice that tastes like this, well I feel I should have it replaced...thanks VU

    Could be a bad batch of juice or your sniffer/taste buds are not agreeing with it at the moment (does happen). If there is something wrong with the juice there is nothing wrong with mentioning it to them or taking it to them to see if they have any suggestions.

    You should not have any expectations they are obligated to replace it though (IMO). You ended up with a nice mod setup which is pretty cool in and of itself and kinder than they had to be. If there is something wrong with the juice and they replace it, then you hit the jackpot.

    Thanks for the reply....That's what I've been told by friends that don't expect shop to replace but not good on their part to hand out this kind of juice. I totally understand this but it's their DIY and maybe teach the person again on DIYing...

    With knowing its DIY, Have you shaken the hell out of it? and I mean really shaken it. It could have settled while in storage and If its a store brand they will likely be able to help you out.

    I agree with J 100% on they should make it right since it is made in house but that would also make me suspect on the condition and cleanliness of the mixing room.

    I went back to store after consulting with you all here and a few fellow friends at other stores...One guy took a "whiff" and the face he made..store clerk spoke with owner on phone...I am getting a full 275ml replacement of different flavor...when I picked up the one I returned it was made 3 days previous and was in my closet in man cave for almost 2 weeks with a vigorus shake everyday with no change to color or smell/taste...

    Don't expect some online shops to take anything back either.
    I got some of the Mike Vapes Hit that Juice around a month ago.
    It's called Peephole. Supposed to taste like Blueberry, Cream and Donut.
    Not even close. Tasted like nasty chocolate and the color was dark brown.
    Let my neighbor try it and she said the same thing.
    I let them know about it and they told me everyones tastes are different.
    I know this. But my tastes are not that far off!
    I have no problem with other Bluberry flavors, They taste just like Blueberry.
    They wouldn't let me send it back even with 3 bottles still unopened.
    They won't have my business anymore!

    Love a happy ending and now you know you have a local B&M that stands behind their products.
