What does the vapor smell like?

For those who use the tobacco flavored cartridges, what does the vapor smell like? If you are in an office, can a coworker in the next cube tell? What about if you are in a car with passengers? And if it does emit a sent, how long does it typically last?

I realize that it would be less than the smell of a lit cigarette and probably even less than the stale smoke on my clothes, but it would be helpful to know if it will annoy anyone while using my e-cig.

    I get a very faint smell when using it but I've used my e-cig in the office next to my boss and he finally saw me take a puff and asked me had I been using it long cause he hadn't smelt smoke. I told him about the vaporizer and that I had been using it all week. the smell I get is sweet not like tobacco unless your used to pipe tobacco and the vapor lingers for only a brief moment itself so unless people are attentive to your actions they won't even notice you use it. so far the only people I've annoyed smoking my e-cig in the office were the smokers and thats because it reminds them of smoking and they start fiending for that nic fix.

    Depends on the fluids and flavors added.
    The dark chocolate I use on occasion in the car, pisses off the wife, because she then wants chocolate (Sorry Honey!)
    Most flavors (if they do omit a smell) are minimal, and I think that it is dependent on the fluids.

    We "tested" this with menthol & noticed a slight scent of it at about 12" from the exhaler's mouth. Meaning there's a very small amount of odor if you stick your nose in the exhaled cloud. Past that range, if they don't see the cloud, they'll have absolutely no idea.

    I went for my annual physical the other day. While I was waiting for the doc in the exam room I vaped ;} cowboy 12mg, he came in just as I got done. He didn't smell a thing because I asked him later. He wasn't sure about the ecig he just said it sounded like it was alot better then smoking.

    I just wanted to add, when the doc asked how the ecig worked I told him all it is is a miniature nebulizer just like the ones they use in the hospital. It has PG, distilled water and what ever medication they are trying to get into the patients lungs, I told him my medication just happens to be nicotine. He said now I know what it is.

    Something like peppermint would be a good idea just to be on the safe side. In fact I think it's a real good idea, thanx.

    The carts I got from v4l smell really bad in the box and in the little carry bag I use inside my purse. The vapor from them can be smelt by my family in the car whereas when I use my v2 menthol carts they cant smell it in the car. My 15yr old son likes to get really close when I have v2 carts cause he says they smell good. Lol but he does always have to get basically in my face and I don't like him doing it cause of the nicotine.

    I was enjoying a vanilla cartridge in a bar one night. The people at the next table looked around and asked if that yummy vanilla scent was coming from my ecig. Another time, I was using a chocolate cartridge and a woman near me said she was craving chocolate all of a sudden, so I suppose the exhaled vapor does have a pleasant scent. I have only had my kit for a couple of weeks, and haven't had time to put it to the 'smell test' in a lot of situations.

    I vape (what many refer to as) a pipe tobacco flavor. It may not always get the pleasant reaction you have experienced, but thus far so good. It goes away quickly.

    In the car my son told me this morning the Vanilla smells like Lucky Charms marshmallows...gee thanks Mom now I want lucky charms. :-)

    I have a slight and temporary mouth taste but not a lingering smell. I work in a clean environment with people that are hyper-sensitive to tobacco or any other odors (whiny babies . . . ). I would be told in no uncertain terms that I was an @$$hole for vaping or smoking anything at all - so far so good. My vehicle is in really good shape smell-wise and that is a real pleasure. My clothes, hands and breath is stink-free. I don't eat many mints now-a-days and don't pray cologne so much. Co-existence is enhanced.
