Vaping in offices – a short guide

With a recent government plan encouraging vaping in offices – we thought it was high time that we released this short office vaping guide! 

Do: be mindful of your fire alarm.

It’s not an absolute certainty that vaping will set off your fire alarm, especially if your office is well ventilated and vapers in the office are careful. But, if it does become an issue, you could recommend installing a heat sensing detection system. This will ensure that even large clouds of vapour won’t cause an unplanned mass evacuation.

Don’t: bring a loud crackly device to work.

Little noises can be irritating at the best of times, and the noise of an impending electrical fire may not win you any friends – especially if you’re within shouting distance of your health and safety officer!

Don’t: bring strong smelling flavours into the office.

We’ve all experienced it, you have a flavour that tastes divine on the inhale, but smells a tad on the funky side on the exhale. If any one of your flavours has been reported for having this problem – best leave it at home.

Do: arm yourself with facts.

There has been a lot of misinformation regarding vaping over the past few years. Many of your co-workers could still believe that vaping is harmful to others in the office. It’s important to calmly provide evidence from credible sources such as Cancer Research UK, Public Health England etc; to show your co-workers or employer – many won’t take your word for it.

Don’t: bring a large cloud producing device to your work place.

Clouds drifting across the office could distract others and it’s a very good way of setting off that old chestnut ‘the fire alarm’. We recommend blowing clouds towards the floor where possible and away from your co-workers. Keeping your device at a nice low voltage during office hours is also helpful.

Do: bring spare drip tips.

You may be surprised just how many people might want to have a toot on your E-cig. To prepare yourself, bring a few clean drip tips with you. Share your E-cig – not your (and others) germs!

Do: Be mindful of visitors.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have an office with windows – and just a small group of vapers can sometimes cause a notable haze. Such a haze may alarm visitors and clients – and it’s best to have a plan in place under such circumstances.

TPD compliant E-liquids

TPD – Tested, Proven, Done!

tpd_celebration

You may have heard whisperings in the press about something called the TPD (Tobacco Products Directive). In a rather large nutshell, this means that if EU companies wish to continue manufacturing e-liquids post November 20th 2016, they have to put them all through a rigorous programme of testing (and pay lots of lolly for the privilege!)

Seeing as DV have always tested their liquids through third party laboratories this wasn’t an issue and, as expected, we passed with flying colours – hurrah!

We knew ahead of time that we would eventually have to say goodbye to 15 and 30ml pre-mixed bottles, as they are now deemed non-compliant for the TPD, (although we can legally sell them up to May 2017) but apart from that, we have made it to the other side, tired but unscathed – we are officially 100% TPD compliant –  hip hip!

So, what does this mean for me we hear you ponder… Well:

  • You can vape easy in the knowledge that you are vaping 100% TPD compliant e-liquids
  • Your favourite DV e-liquids will taste exactly as they did before as, unlike some companies, we didn’t need to amend any of ours in order to comply.
  • Flavour concentrates remain unaffected by the TPD and you can continue to purchase them in 50 and 100ml bottles.
  • It’s business as usual at DV with more exciting times ahead, we even have some new flavours in the pipeline!

So we say, thank you all for your custom and loyalty, and let’s…

Carry on Vaping!

DV have never used diacetyl and we never will!

There has been a lot of talk in the media over the last few days warning of e-liquids that contain potentially harmful levels of diacetyl. We would just like to re-emphasize that DV never have and never will use diacetyl or acetyl propionyl in our products.

At Decadent Vapours we guarantee the highest quality of ingredients and products at all times. We have always taken safety seriously.

Every product we offer has passed the most stringent of tests and adheres to every single piece of legislation currently set down. It is in our interests, not just yours, to ensure the safety of our products. To put it simply, we would never produce a product that we would not wish to vape ourselves.

Each of our flavours has passed third party tests by a research laboratory that holds a GMP license from the National Drug Organisation. Each individual test includes stringent checks for diacetyl and acetyl propionyl – down to the nearest 0.001%.

If you would like to see the certificate for a particular product, simply click on the relevant Safety Information Tab on that product. If you’d like more information on our testing, please contact us at: [email protected]

ECE Expo report

Last Friday, 3 of the DV team set sail in their new DV ‘Steam machine’ for a very long journey. With a maximum speed of 55mph you can see why it took them 6 hours to get from Warwickshire to the ECE Expo in Harrogate, Yorkshire (a car would have got you there in 2.5 hours).

And it’s not just the speed – with a length of 6 meters, it’s not an easy beast to handle on a busy motorway. But along the route there were many travellers admiring the Steam Machine, taking pictures and beeping their horns. In one funny and bizarre moment, one gentleman even took a selfie while driving (even though we strongly would not recommend this).

When the DV squad finally arrived at their hotel, people still wanted to take pictures and and look inside the vehicle – the team could already tell our new set of wheels had gone down a hit. On Saturday itself the DV squad rolled up and got straight into action like a well-oiled machine. Swiftly the e-liquids were made ready while the tasters and banners were ready in a flash – it was like a scene from the A-Team. The competition must have been amazed by our dynamic trio.

When people started to flood in to the Expo by their hundreds, what seemed to stand out the most was the Steam Machine. This led to the DV squad having a very busy weekend, with every second taken up with questions, tastings, sales and of course giving out e-liquid goodies. Even other vendors asked for a look inside, with some hinting they might create one of their own. No one had seen anything like it before!

After two long, busy and successful days, the DV squad had to leave with their now well known and adored Steam Machine. As it departed the festival it was shown lots of love, with some people following it down the motor way, taking pictures and waving – and with only another 6 hour journey back to base ahead of it…

Gold review by Niki from RY4 Radio

Nicki has tried a few E-liquids in her time! Every week she hosts an e-liquid review show called: ‘Niki’s Juicy Bits’ on RY4 Radio.

Here’s what she thought of Gold:

“The gold bottle is a lovely touch. Very classy. The main aroma when I first opened it is the biscuity wafer coming through. Before tasting it my first thoughts were oh no not another cheesecake! It wasn’t until I tasted it that I realised what it was supposed to be. The words ‘Ferrero Rocher’ spring to mind. You get the flavour of the luxurious chocolate, the crispy wafer and the hazelnuts at just the right moments and in the right proportions. The chocolate flavour is excellent with that kind of melt in the mouth appeal. I don’t usually enjoy many chocolate vape flavours but have to admit that this one is perfect. I couldn’t vape it all day but only in the same way that I couldn’t eat Ferrero Rocher chocolates all day. It’s rich, creamy, delicious and smooth and ideal for a special treat for sweet cravings. I can almost imagine the anticipation of unwrapping the gold foil and then biting into the cripsy wafer and chocolate ball and the sigh of pleasure as the chocolaty cream inside just melts on the tongue. The juice definitely achieves what it set out to do.  (9 out of 10 – only knocked a point off cause I couldn’t possibly vape it all day without feeling guilty!)”
