Vape odor can linger, but it usually dissipates more quickly than cigarette smoke. The odor of vape vapor depends on the type of e-liquid used, and the scent can range from fruity or sweet to musky or earthy.
While vape odor is less potent than cigarette smoke, it can still cling to clothing, hair, and other surfaces. The extent to which the scent lingers will depend on factors such as the ventilation in the room, how close the user was to other people or objects, and how sensitive the person is to smells.
To reduce the risk of vape odor lingering, it is recommended to vape in well-ventilated areas, avoid blowing the vapor directly at people or objects, and to practice good personal hygiene such as washing hands and brushing teeth after vaping.
