Not all vape fluids have a sickly sweet scent. Some do. Some don’t. Just like anything else scent based really. You can get them with zero scent, with fruity scent, with tobacco scent, spicey, yeasty, but not all are sickly sweet. Some are horribly bitter too.J.J.B. wrote: ↑Sun Feb 11, 2018 3:38 pmMrs J.J.B., who has never smoked, commented the other day that she would rather follow someone in the street smoking a cigarette and get second-hand smoke than someone ‘vaping’ and get second-hand vapour. I tend to agree. These billowing clouds of sickly-scented vapour can make you feel quite ill and it’s commonplace for vapers to ‘give it large’ on their electro devices, as if they are justified in doing so because it’s not tobacco.
The billowing clouds/vapers giving it large, you only get this if you specifically want to make them. You need the right powerful device and the right syrupy type of fluid. None of the vapers I know or see daily at work can do these big clouds of smoke. But in the vape shop and youtube I have seen them do it.
As for your “as if they are justified in doing so because it’s not tobacco”
This is the bit I find truly interesting.
Who gets to decide what legal things people are and aren’t entitled to do? One man’s meat is another man’s poison afterall. The scent you find obnoxious, the next guy might find it perfectly pleasant. Should people really stop vaping or feel like entitled arseholes because you find it a sickly smell?
if you were supreme ruler, you would ban e cigarettes.
I would ban people who smell of sweat or smell of unwashed bits. Then I would ban all cheap deodorants and perfumes. Then I would ban overused expensive perfumes. Then I would ban people who use too much.
The next person would ban cars and motorbikes because they don’t like the smell of exhaust fumes.
You have facebook groups here, and I am NOT kidding, trying to ban barbeques and wood-burners used in peoples’ gardens because of the obnoxious smell they create.
What about alcohol... plenty of people hate the smell of that.
What about vegetarians and vegans. I feel perfectly entitled to cook my steak, in my home or on my bbq, and I really couldn't give a shit that I am subjecting them to vapours they find repulsive.
If we’re talking indoors vaping in enclosed spaces I can see your point to a degree. But if we’re talking outdoors I think the onus is on you to use a degree of tolerance. Same way I do when I meet someone with Lynx or Axe deo on. I’d rather make the sign of the cross and hiss at them, but hey, live and let live.
Whatever smell you want to mention, you can be guaranteed that somebody somewhere has an issue with it.
