Toko aroma formula - lubricant by Shunga Erotic Art - review by Nirelan

A New Favorite in My House!

I love this stuff, I am looking forward to trying all of the other flavors as well! If they are even half as good as the strawberry and champagne I will never use another lube again!
Compatible with many materials, many ways to use it, smells awesome, tastes even better
Could cause allergies in some people, contains glycerin

extremely useful review


Toko Aroma Lubricant is a great water-based lubricant that can be used for oral, vaginal, and anal sex. This lube will work for anyone that needs a little more lubrication or just wants to add some wonderful flavor to the mix. As with anything that has ingredients, I always warn that there could be an allergy concern, I will go over the ingredients in a bit.

Water-based lubricants are typically recommended by doctors and health care workers because they are considered safer than oil-based lubricants and they wash off much easier as well. One thing that might not be appealing about water-based lubricant is that it dries up during use and leaves the skin feeling tacky because all the other ingredients are left on the skin after the water soaks in, but that also means that just adding a little water back to the area it will rejuvenate the lube again.
    • Good for anal
    • Oral

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of this lube is very like really thin honey without all the stickiness. That's about the only way I can think of to really describe it. It is a bit slimy and stringy between your fingers when you use it. It's not thick but it's not really watery either — it's kind of right between the two consistencies.



It is pretty easy to pour out; if you're not careful it will come out really fast, so beware when using in the dark. It will also drip, so after you apply it be careful to not let it drip off of the spot where you need it.

Taste / Aroma

I LOVE the way this stuff smells and tastes! It is sweet and fruity and you can smell it as soon as you pour it out. It smells just like strawberries and champagne, and surprisingly it tastes just like it smells and has no aftertaste. Now, I usually stay away from flavored things just for the simple fact that they all have a horrid aftertaste, but that is NOT the case with this lubricant.

I bought this because I was tired of not getting head when using my old lube which tasted like perfume. I wanted something that I could be like, "Get down there and enjoy yourself while I enjoy myself!" This lube is perfect for that.
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell
    • Strong taste


I have used this lube for vaginal and oral sex. I think it is a bit thin to use for anal sex, but I'm not saying it wouldn't work. I did not have to reapply during use, but that may be because during oral use our saliva kept it moist and wet, and during vaginal use my natural juices started flowing making it not necessary to reapply.

After play time was over all that was needed to wash it off was some warm water and soap.

I love this lube so much that I will definitely be purchasing the other flavors as well. For the price and amount that you get, you really can't go wrong.


Toko Aroma Lubricant comes all on its own, no packaging required. It is sealed shut with a plastic piece that is perforated down the side so that the top doesn't open up and make a mess during delivery. It does not come with instructions for use. It is a small enough bottle that it would be easy to travel with, although I would suggest putting it inside a Ziploc bag just in case it opens up. It isn't very discreet, it says right on the bottle what it is.

Personal comments

I would recommend this lube to anyone wanting a flavored lube. Despite all the allergy concerns, I think it is a very nice lube and will be using it quite often. Please read through all the ingredients closely and make sure that you aren't sensitive to any of them.


I used this lube just about every way but anal, and loved it in every way. There is not much else to say — that pretty much covers it. I've never had a lube I liked quite as much as I like this one, and it impressed the hell out of me by not having an aftertaste. My boyfriend actually liked it as well, which has NEVER happened!
Follow-up commentary
I have since bought two other flavors from this brand and love them all. They all taste wonderful and do their job like they are supposed to. Still haven't tried during anal, but to be fair I have a favorite lube for that already.
