Here on our blog we never talked about Iron Vaper, a young and dynamic Italian company that produces e-liquids (mainly creamy and fruity) expecially for cloud chasing and flavor chasing lovers. And finally that day came …
So today we will give space for the first time to this italian company, very curious about one of its latest creations: Sharm.
It is sufficient to observe the product packaging, to understand that Sharm (a good name however does not lie) is inspired by ancient Egypt. A pretty cardboard pyramid holds a 60 ml chubby gorilla, containing 20 ml of concentrated aroma to which will be added another 40 ml of base to obtain the mixture ready to vape. On a lively and oriental label with a background rich in hieroglyphics, we cannot fail to note the accuracy and completeness of the information given, from the manufacturer’s references, passing through the product info and ending with the various danger pictograms.
Not having been able to find an official description of Sharm from the manufacturer official website, we use one of the descriptions found on the net by some e-cig shops:
Delizioso marzapane alle mandorle arricchito da una dolce crema all’Argan. Il tutto è equilibrato da particolari spezie orientali che rendono questo liquido unico nel suo genere.
Delicious almond marzipan enriched with a sweet Argan cream. Everything is balanced by particular oriental spices that make this e-liquid unique in its kind.
Since the first sniff Sharm (created in collaboration with the influencer Stefano Porcelli) shows without any fear what we like to define its sweet almond soul. The aromatic load is high, as is appropriate for e-juices created specifically for cloud chasing, but nevertheless they do not escape on the smell some subtle though not clearly identifiable spicy nuances which, alongside the dominant almond scent, form a rather sweet mix , rich and tasty. I have to be honest: if I think to Egypt, my imagination runs towards shores and perfumes much more spicy and decidedly less sweet, but here we enter into the ambit of subjective evaluations that must appropriately remain outside the aromatic analyzes of our reviews.
I rush towards the vape test, relying on the surprising and perhaps slightly underestimated Steam Crave Aromamizer Lite, a rebuildable 23 mm atomizer able to express itself at best with different types of e-liquids and in particular in flavor chasing vape.
If in the smell test Sharm had not surprised me that much, presenting itself as a good creamy, sweet and with some very light spicy cue, things change radically during the vape test and, from the first puff I note that this aroma leaves the clothes of the classic creamy e-juice to dress those of a rather unusual and sophisticated recipe.
It is surprising, in fact, the reduced sweetness that welcomes me in the inhalation phase, capable of showing, on the contrary, intriguing spicy scents wrapped in a light and mysterious roasted aura. Absolutely not easy to describe the components that burst into inspiration, but some fat and vegetable scents with subtle hazel nuances, suggest and reflect well the idea of an argan vegetable oil.
Argan oils and creams are obtained from the processing of Moroccan argan seeds and, due to their beneficial properties, are widely used in cosmetics, especially for the wellness and personal care. But in the vape, never any manufacturer in our memory, until now used it …
After the sophisticated starting hints, Sharm strengthens its aromatic load, and in the second part of the puff has an important creamy imprint. Now the bouquet combines with the oriental notes, a tasty and sweet almond paste that takes over the scene.
On the heart of the puff and up to the consistent aromatic post-vaping persistence, the sweet contribution of almond marzipan is very evident and also very pleasant because it is made by the manufacturer in a natural and realistic way. In my opinion, however, there is no warning, a strengthening of the sugar component, due to the contribution of a fair dose of sucralose (or similar agents) and probably to a slight vanilla tip.
In cloud chasing configuration, the sweetest and creamiest notes of Sharm are exalted, the vape is fat and full-bodied, but inevitably presents a more compressed aromatic score; on the contrary, if tried in restricted flavor chasing, Sharm perhaps loses slightly in roundness in favor of a more refined and multi-faceted bouquet, and still preserving its sweet and creamy tones.

Pro: A tasty and refined cream with atypical ingredients.
Cons: In cloud chasing the liquid exceeds in sweetness and turned out to be a bit confused and mixed.
