Naked 100 E-Juice Review
Most e-juice mixers think complexity is king. Why focus on a few well-executed simple fruity flavors when you can choose a few exotic fruits and add a bunch of impressive-sounding ingredients like Madagascan vanilla or crème anglaise, throw together a convoluted, pretentious description and charge tons of money for it? Well thankfully, not every mixer has the same philosophy. Naked 100 is a creation from Schwartz E-liquid and their focus is explicitly on simple, clean flavors without any extraneous ingredients. They aim to provide hard-hitting, delicious and high-VG fruit flavors without the nonsense. The question is: do they get the job done? We’ve vaped nine juices from the line-up for our Naked 100 E-Juice review to find out.
Packaging and Design
The Naked 100 e-liquids come in glass 60 ml bottles with child-proof caps that have dripper spouts attached. This is pretty standard for the industry these days but it’s still exactly what you want to see, so no complaints here at all.
The design fits in nicely with the minimalistic ethos of the company, with uncluttered labels featuring the company name, the flavor name and key information about the bottle (size, PG/VG ratio and nicotine level) sitting proud in the center. To the right, there are three symbols showing the components of the flavor – for example, Lava Flow has a picture of a strawberry, pineapple and a coconut, so you know what the juice will taste like right away. The other side contains all of the expected warnings, as well as a batch number and expiry date.
Overall, the bottles do everything they need to in impressive style, so there are no complaints here at all.
The juices from Naked 100 are all 70% VG blends, with no choice of PG/VG ratio available. However, the high-VG mixes are suitable for the vast majority of tanks and atomizers on the market today. The vapor production is consistently excellent, and the PG content is still enough to offer a satisfying throat hit when paired with a high-power device. Unless you have a very basic vape pen and a clearomizer, you won’t have an issue with the PG/VG ratio of the Naked 100 e-juices.
For nicotine strengths, there are four options available: 0, 3, 6 and 12 mg/ml. This is plenty of choice for modern atomizers, and only just-switching smokers will realistically need 12 mg/ml. Again, if you were using a basic vape pen, an 18 mg/ml option would be useful, but the Naked 100 juices are intended to be used on modern atomizers like sub ohm tanks. Overall, they offer everything you need when it comes to nicotine levels.
Naked 100 E-Juice Review: The Flavors
Lava Flow – Rating 3.5/5
Accuracy: This is a mixture of strawberry, pineapple and coconut, intended as a fruity cocktail-inspired e-juice. The flavors come through pretty well, with the pineapple and coconut hitting you in equal measure at the start of your draw and the strawberry backing the whole thing up throughout. The coconut is the most accurate-replicated component, despite the subtle nature of the flavor, and the sharpness from the pineapple complements it well.
Overall: This juice is enjoyable but not the best in the line-up. The overall flavor is nice – the fruits mix together well and the coconut does a good job of pulling the whole thing together. The only issue is that the coconut is too prominent in the mix; it isn’t a vibrant enough flavor to carry the e-juice on its own. If the strawberry had been dialed up a little in the mix it would be much better.
Very Berry – Rating 4.5/5
Accuracy: This is a blueberry, blackberry and lemon mix; another straight-up fruity flavor from Naked 100. The flavor components all come through well, with the lemon hitting you strongly on the nose, the blueberry carrying the bulk of the flavor and the blackberry comes through towards the end of your draw and lingers afterwards. Every element here is beautifully captured and impressively realistic.
Overall: This is a great combination that makes for an excellent e-liquid. The flavors all come through distinctly at different times but complement each other really well. The lemon adds a bite, the blueberry creates a warm, soft backdrop and the blackberry finishes it with a touch of sweetness and a stronger flavor in general. It’s a fantastic fruity e-juice, all-round – definitely one to pick up when you place an order.
Amazing Mango – Rating 4/5
Accuracy: As the name suggests, this is a mango flavor, but it’s backed up with touches of peach and a little bit of cream to top it off. Like with the others in the line-up, all of the components come through here, well-balanced with each other but all individually distinguishable. The mango and peach seem to come through equally – both beautifully captured – and the cream provides a soft backdrop for the whole thing.
Overall: This is another quality fruity flavor from Naked 100. The mixture of peach and mango gives the juice a slightly floral quality which may be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your tastes. However, the two flavors work really well together, and the cream does a good job of softening the whole thing and helping it go down easily. The floral qualities stop it from being an all-day vape for me, but it’s a good juice regardless.
Hawaiian Pog – Rating 5/5
Accuracy: This is a passion fruit, orange and guava e-juice, intended to taste like a freshly-squeezed Hawaiian cocktail. The result is pretty good; the passion fruit definitely takes center-stage in the flavor, but the bite of the well-captured orange is present throughout too. The guava isn’t as easily detectable, but it adds some sweetness throughout and helps to round out some of the sharper elements.
Overall: This juice is really delicious. It’s a beautifully-executed tropical fruit mixture, with a perfect balance of citrusy sharpness and sweetness making it a really pleasant flavor to vape. Like the other juices from Naked 100, the fruit flavor is really clean and natural, helping the juice avoid excess sweetness while still packing plenty of flavor into every puff. This is an all-day vape and definitely one to try if you like fruity flavors.
Yummy Gum – Rating 4.5/5
Accuracy: This is intended as a strawberry chewing gum flavor, put out under Naked 100’s candy line-up. The juice definitely accomplishes its goal. The strawberry flavor comes through clearly, and it’s completely enveloped in a candy-like sweetness that evokes memories of luminous-red chewing gum. The flavor doesn’t really set out to do anything else, so it does great on the accuracy front.
Overall: It’s hard not to enjoy this e-juice. The strawberry is captured pretty well, but if you’re a fan of candy e-liquids, the sweetness of the flavor is what really makes it excellent. The sweetness is quite intense, but the fruity baseline prevents it from becoming sickly after you’ve been vaping it for a while. It isn’t the most interesting flavor there is, but if you’re a fan of sweet e-juices and strawberry, you’ll love it.
Berry Belts – Rating 4.5/5
Accuracy: This is advertised as a mixture of strawberry candy and citrus flavors, mixing sweetness and sharpness for an interesting candy blend. The flavors do come through as intended, with the sweetened strawberry being the most notable but being quickly followed up by sharpness from the citrus components. The two blend together nicely, with the sharper elements being rounded out by the sweetness but still providing some respite from the candy-sweetness of the strawberry. Both key elements are nicely captured; it isn’t perfect but you know what you’re vaping from the first puff.
Overall: This is another candy e-juice from Naked 100 that strikes a great balance between toothache-inducing sweetness and a natural fruity flavor. The citrus elements take it to the next level, adding another dimension to the flavor and another reason to keep coming back for more. It isn’t Earth-shatteringly delicious, but even for someone like me who isn’t usually too big on candy flavors, it’s a fantastic e-juice that I could comfortable vape all day.
Sour Sweet – Rating 5/5
Accuracy: This e-juice aims to capture the flavor of gummy sweet and sour candy, offering a blend of sugary sweetness backed by a slight bite of lemon and lime. The e-liquid achieves what it sets out to really effectively, with a realistic lime flavor coming through immediately. It’s realistically biting and sharp, but the sweeter elements of the flavor soften the taste nicely. The lemon blends with this well, but isn’t too easy to pick out against the backdrop of the rest of the flavor.
Overall: This is another excellent e-juice in the Naked 100 Candy line-up, combining sweet and sour elements expertly. The sweetness here is more muted than in the other candy juices, but it works really well with the more prominent lime notes. Even if you wouldn’t normally vape candy e-juices, you’ll love this as long as you’re a fan of lime. It’s a great e-liquid; probably a bit too strong in flavor to be an all-day vape but, excellent none-the-less.
Brain Freeze – Rating 4/5
Accuracy: This is from the Naked 100 Menthol line, and the minty backbone of the flavor is topped off with exotic fruits like kiwi and pomegranate as well as touches of strawberry. The menthol is the first thing you’ll notice by a long way. It offers a powerful and cooling hit of menthol that really strikes the top of your mouth and your nose as you inhale. The exotic fruits come through faintly throughout your draw, adding some fruity complexity but ultimately being drowned out a little by the strong menthol.
Overall: Brain Freeze does what the name suggests. The strong, icy hit of menthol really characterizes the flavor and makes it a great choice for menthol-loving vapers. The fruity undertones do a great job of taking it away from being a one-note menthol offering, though, and the hints of sweetness the fruits add are what keep you coming back for more. The juice could have been better if the fruits were slightly more prominent in the mix, but it’s still a very enjoyable flavor.
Frost Bite – Rating 5/5
Accuracy: This is another offering from the Menthol line, and features pineapple, cantaloupe and honeydew melon in addition to the menthol. The result here is a little different to Brain Freeze. Even though the menthol is still hard-hitting and icy cool, the pineapple blends with it closely and the mixture hits you together, producing a fruity flavor with a menthol edge rather than a menthol with fruit undertones. The sweetness of the honeydew melon comes through nicely, but I don’t pick up too much from the cantaloupe.
Overall: Frost Bite is an awesome menthol e-juice for anybody wanting more than a basic minty taste. The fruit components are the star of the show, and the pineapple in particular colors the taste and takes it away from a standard menthol. The minty punch is still there, though, so ex-menthol smokers will get what they’re looking for from the liquid. This is an all-day vape for me, and easily one of the best menthol e-juices I’ve tried. If you’re into menthols, I’d highly recommend it.
