Chemical Clown e-liquids are a name that have been around for a while, you may well have come across their slightly sinister looking bottles previously!
However they are now under new management, and so they have rebranded and relaunched with these four flavours.
They took their previous creepy clown aesthetic, and gone from a slightly cheap “pop up shop at Halloween” look, to a far more grown up look, with each liquid getting it’s own beautifully illustrated character, matched to a single bold colour on a black bottle.
What Can We Expect From Chemical Clown Vape Juice?
All of the flavours come in 70/30 VG and PG – in a 60ml short-fill.
I received four 60ml bottles all at 0mg and for the test I’ve used the Wotofo Profile RDA freshly wicked each time using Wotofo cotton and mesh strip.
All four are fruit based e juice flavours, with what I would describe as fairly “safe” flavours.
Nothing in the description makes me think “I’ve never tried *that* before”, so they are going to have to do well on quality to stand out from the pack!
The e-liquid was sent to me free of charge direct from Chemical Clown – thank you – as always my thoughts are my own and are not influenced by freebies.
So are these clowns going to amuse and tantalise your taste buds, or are you going to get a horrible fright?
Let’s find out.
Bozo – 70/30 VG PG
Chemical Clown Say:
Enjoy the magic – with the juices of delicious oranges and pomegranate, offering a fresh, tart taste with a sweet finish and slight fizz.
I’m not normally a massive fan of orange flavours, as I find they can tend towards the artificial a little too easily.
On the inhale this liquid seems perfectly balanced between the juicy orange flavours, and the almost dry pomegranate. It reminds me of a blood orange with the richness of the pomegranate giving you a vape that’s a little more complex.
It manages to be both a little bit tart, but also really juicy.
Exhaling, and the pomegranate is definitely the dominant flavour, you can almost feel the pips and my mouth started watering! Underneath that though you have an orange that tastes like it’s been freshly squeezed. This is finished off by a little zing, almost like an orange sherbet.
It’s a really enjoyable vape, and one I can imagine vaping sitting in the morning sun outside a french patisserie, tucking into a flaky croissant.
Bambam – 70/30 VG PG
Chemical Clown Say:
Lemon slices and tangy bites of lime dancing across your palette – this twisted flavour of citrus makes your mouth water and keeps you dripping until the last drop!
There’s some serious lime here the moment you start to drip this liquid! For anyone that has ever worked in a pub, it reminds me of the smell you get when you change the lime cordial.
On the inhale it doesn’t get off to a promising start, it feels like your drinking a slightly flat lemonade and lime! A little too sweet and not terrible interesting.
But this quickly gets whipped away as you’re hit by a burst of lime right at the back of your throat, tangy!
When you exhale the lemon and lime get to play around a little more, so you’re never quite sure whether it’s one or the other that you can taste from one moment to the next. It starts to come alive a lot more as a flavour here, and has a real sizzle to it.
Unfortunately, you’re left with a taste that doesn’t taste fresh or juicy, just a little sticky.
Not quite the palate cleanser I was hoping for here, and I would have preferred more of the “fizz” that they managed to capture with Bozo.
Barbuda – 70/30 VG PG
Chemical Clown Say:
Straight out of the Circus, sweet slices of ripe mangos and exotic fruit juice, created to satisfy your cravings for something refreshing!
I love mango as a flavour, but it seems to be an incredibly difficult one to capture!
And tasting this flavour, I’m not about to change my opinion on that anytime soon.
This flavour is probably the one that sticks to the most consistent vape on both the inhale and the exhale, unfortunately it’s not really mango.
Instead it feels far more like a tropical punch with a mango base, not unpleasant by any stretch. It’s got rich tropical fruits, with pineapple and passion fruit being the more distinctive flavours. There even seems to be just the *tiniest* bit of cooling.
Once I had gotten over my disappointment that this wasn’t a full on mango, I really enjoyed the this flavour. It managed to never become too sweet, which is a real challenge on these sorts of tropical flavours.
I would be quite happy vaping this all day, it’s an easy vape and absolutely full of fruit.
Meg – 0mg 70/30 VG PG
Chemical Clown Say:
Bring on Bring on the sour clowns! – blueberries mixed with red raspberries and a mouthwatering burst of blue raspberries.
Meg is certainly mystic!
This is probably the flavour I enjoyed the most out of the four.
On the inhale you get a punnet full of raspberries! It’s a combination of fresh red raspberries with just a hint of sourness.
Exhaling and you just have the juiciest berry flavours coming out, mouthwatering!
Underneath that there’s some more slightly sour notes. Then it finishes with a perfect light chill.
If you like your Heisenbergs, or any berry with cooling vapes, then this one is probably going to be right up your alley.
This is definitely an all day vape for me!
Chemical Clown have made some really solid vape juice here. There’s nothing terribly revolutionary about any of these flavours, but they all are well put together.
The only one I wasn’t especially a fan of was the Bambam Lemon & Lime, but I think I probably have too many associations from working in pubs to ever really enjoy a lemon and lime flavoured vape!
I think that these four liquids are a great starting point for Chemical Clown to grow. They’ve managed to make four distinct e-liquids, and if someone likes fruit flavours, they’re probably going to like at least one of them.
Of course to succeed with a new line of eliquid, taste is the most important, but so is standing out and looking good so that people pick you up. The care and attention to detail they’ve put into their branding definitely shouldn’t be ignored. Each bottle is distinctive, whilst also being very obviously from the same family.
Compared to how they used to look, they have definitely raised their game!
I’m really curious to see what Chemical Clown does in the future, and I’ll be first in line if they decide to try something that’s a little more experimental!
