Yummy in the right context

This is a wonderful flavored lubricant that tastes great on a partner's body, and has a very nice light warming sensation that stimulates beautifully. It doesn't taste that great on its own, but try it on a vagina and you will be impressed. It's also water based and thus compatible with all toys and condoms.
Great taste on the skin, slick non-stick, water based.
May burn when used for penetration, not good for anal play.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


So, this is a nice flavored warming lube. I purchased the strawberries and champagne flavor, and found when I tried a little off my hand that it was a little bitter for my tastes, but then I tried it spread a little thinner, and it was better. I then tried it on a vagina (really what this is best for) and in that context, it is DELICIOUS. Basically, this is a wonderful lube when used to give oral sex to a woman, I don't know how well it goes with penis, and frankly, I'm not a dedicated enough reviewer to go and find that one out (no, I don't give research blowjobs).

In any, case this is a great lube for anyone who gives oral sex to people with vaginas, or any vagina having person who receives oral sex. I find that the warming sensation can be a little intense for some when used for penetration (but for others it's lovely, I'd recommend checking how you/your partner responded to warming lubes in the past, to gauge how it will be for you). I would not recommend this lube for anal play

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a sort of middle of the road lube in terms of thickness, thinner than KY, but thicker than some of the more liquidy lubes on the market. I personally do not like a super thick lube and this one is just about right for me. It's slippery without being "gloopy" and it works nicely for penetration. It stays in place, but has enough "slip" to be moved easily around. I've found it does not get sticky which is wonderful, as so many lubes do end up a sticky mess. Really, this is an all around lovely lube that I strongly recommend.

Taste / Aroma

The taste is lovely, and quite strong (I recommend using only a little of this lube, spread out over the area), and the aroma is noticeable, but not irritatingly intense. The strawberries and champagne description of the flavor is very accurate, and you can taste the champagne part more than I would have expected upon purchasing this product. There is a slight bitter undertaste that I noticed upon first trying the lube (licking a dollop off my hand) however, the bitterness disappears when it's used on a vagina, and the flavor goes really nicely with the taste of vagina. I think one of the best parts about this lube is how well it works with the natural flavor of the body. You can have a flavored lube that's delicious on its own, but that doesn't go at all well with the taste of a vagina (or a penis, again I don't know how this product combines with the taste of penis) and then there's not very much point to a flavored lube, but Toko Aroma Formula works beautifully with the body, and makes oral sex even more delightful to give.
    • Great taste
    • Smells good


This lube lasts very well and the flavor stays very nicely throughout an oral sex session. It also stays slippery and does not get sticky the way many other water based lubricants do. It works very well for penetration if your partner enjoys warming lubes, and the warming sensation is mild and pleasant (though some might find it a bit burn-y when used internally). Clean up with this stuff is also a total breeze, you just wipe it off, and I swear no sticky residue. It's practically a miracle.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


The bottle is nicely shaped and prettily designed, and doesn't get spilly or sticky, which is frankly a rarity in terms of lube bottles. It's also wonderfully easy to dispense. I suppose the only downside is it's not terribly discreet.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

This lube does have a delightful light warming sensation, that's very pleasant on the body. It would work very nicely as a massage "oil" as well as performing well as a lube.


My girlfriend and I really enjoy this lube. My girlfriend has reacted poorly to warming lubes in the past (Wet's strawberry warming gave her a nasty rash) so we were careful to proceed with caution in this case, doing a patch test first, and we found that she has no problems with it. We're really glad to have a warming lube that works for her.
Follow-up commentary
A little of this stuff goes a long way, and it's well worth it for the price. It's earned a special place on my night stand as one of my favorite lubes. I know it contains glycerin, but this hasn't been a problem for me or my girlfriend.
