Well Aren't You Just A Big Bowl Of Awesomesauce

Aroma plays well on its own or with a woman's natural juices. In addition to being able to add a lovely flavor and scent to any area you put it on, it also lasts longer than just about any other water based lubricant out there. A very worthy addition to anybody's collection.

Use

There's a few different ways one can use a flavored lubricant, although not all flavored lubes lend themselves very well to most of them. You can use it to add a bit of flavor and glide to oral sex for either sex, use it to flavor up giving a rim job, or use it for vaginal sex followed by oral for either partner (if you didn't use a condom). But this lube is condom friendly, so no worries about that. While it's not the best for anal thrusting, it does work well for inserting probes or plugs, and the scent is strong enough that it can pleasantly mask that eau de butt that commonly plagues anal toys.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Aroma is a bit thicker than water, but still spreads a lot like water. This means that if you're not careful, it's gonna run downhill and can make a mess. But since it's so slick (in a good way), you don't need much to get started and it can be revived by using some spit, water, or even adding more if you want an extra shot of aroma.

Between the fingers it feels silky and velvety, very luxurious, and much nicer than most water based lubes out there. It will leave a slight residue, but it's not sticky or greasy, just sort of, there. You can tell that something was applied to the skin, but that's about it.
    • Slick
    • Smooth
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

On Eden, Aroma is available in grape, strawberries & champagne, tangerines & cream, mango/melon, fruit, and cherry. I've always had a thing for their exotic fruits scent/flavor, so I felt safe choosing that one again, and it didn't let me down.

It smells like good old generic fruit, sniffing the bottle reminds me a lot of Juicy Fruit gum. Spread out on the skin it smells if you get close to it, but the scent is pretty long lasting. It tastes sweet, slightly fruit flavored gum flavored, and has no aftertaste, except a slightly fruity one.

Performance

This lube far surpassed our expectations, especially knowing that it was flavored, since with flavor, you normally end up sacrificing something that would be much more useful. We got a great flavor, no aftertaste, a lube that works almost like a silicone but is safe with silicone toys, didn't get sticky, easily rejuvenated or washed off, there was no real down side that we could find.

This works the best for vaginal sex, especially when followed up with oral sex. If you're with a partner that you don't use a condom with, you'll flavor both people. If you are using a condom, the female will taste more like the lube than the latex of the condom. I wouldn't recommend it for any real anal thrusting, but for inserting things like probes or plugs, it works great since it's compatible with so many materials.

If you do feel the need to wash it off, some soap and water will do fine. You could also spray yourself down with a toy cleaner and wipe off as well.

Packaging

The bottle is relatively discreet in that it doesn't say lubricant in large letters anywhere, but it does say it in small letters on the front. The design of the bottle is classy enough that if you leave it out anywhere, it would probably go unnoticed among other bottles.

The flip top can be a bit finicky, so make sure that it's closed all the way if you're going to travel with it or lay it down in a drawer to store, and the 5.5 fluid ounces are going to last you a long time.

The back of the bottle has their little shpeel in 3 different languages, English, French, and German, as well as the list of ingredients: aqua, glycerin, propylene glycol, hydroxyethylcellulose, aroma, PEG 5m, sucralose, and methyl paraben. So anybody who has any sensitivities or allergies to glycerins or parabens might want to skip this one.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

This has become one of our new favorite lubes. It lasts longer than any other water based lube we have, and doesn't leave us feeling as icky as a silicone based. It also doesn't burn me like a few of the silicone lubes I've tried. On top of all that it leaves both of us smelling lovely post coitus, and can even be used as a massage aid if you're not looking for a lengthy massage.

I highly recommend this one to others, and I'll definitely be getting more flavors.
Follow-up commentary
This is still my favorite flavored lube because of how well it works as a regular lube that just smells fantastic as well. I did buy the strawberries and champagne flavor to go with my fruit flavor, and honestly they're so similar that I wish I had picked a different one. However, when we do finally manage to make it through those two bottles, I'll just pick up another one in a new flavor.
