All the VDLV activities are governed by a code of ethics established by the quality department.

THE HISTORY

Since August 2012, VDLV has been concentrating itself on the development of high quality e‐liquids with aromas for vape. After 28 months of research & development, VDLV became a key player in the distribution of e‐liquids in France.

 

THE BEGINNING

Early in 2011, Vincent CUISSET, a research engineer in a Bordeaux laboratory, was amazed to discover how electronic cigarettes worked. He was excited and immediately realized the great drawing power of this original alternative to classic cigarettes.

His initial curiosity quickly developed into fascinated research into the system and how it worked.

He realized that many improvements and innovations could be introduced into this booming market, particularly in terms of the composition and quality of e-liquids.

 

In 2017, we are celebrating our 5th anniversary !

VDLV has become a key player in the e‐liquids distribution in France and in Europe. Located in a 1200m² office near Bordeaux in France, VDLV today employs more than 80 people. Well implemented on the French market, VDLV is now focused on gradually expanding its market share into foreign markets (European Union, North Africa, Russia, USA, Japan).

For 5 years, VDLV has devoted itself passionately to creating and producing e-liquids for electronic cigarettes. From product design to sales, VDLV applies precise safety rules to provide optimal protection for consumers: quality raw materials, traceability, metrology, strict monitoring, chemical andmicrobiological analyses.

In 2016, VDLV was the 1st French manufacturer to obtain the AFNOR XP D90-300-2 e-liquid certification. In 2017, it’s still the one.

 

DEVELOPPEMENT

Availing of the network of Bordeaux university laboratories, he commenced a long research and development phase that lasted a year and a half.

The VDLV company was registered in April 2012.  The registered office was initially established at the European Institute for Chemistry and Biology at Pessac, in premises that belonged to the University of Bordeaux I.

This conjunction produced a durable partnership, based on a service provision contract for the analysis of nicotine bases, aromatic compounds and finished products. This led to the birth of the VDLV company and its first e-liquid brand: VINCENT DANS LES VAPES.

To complete its commercial offer and satisfy clients that are ever more demanding in terms of a powerful taste and aromatic complexity, VDLV commercialised a completely new brand in December 2014: CirKus. Unlike Vincent dans les Vapes, CirKus e-liquids are based on natural and artificial food flavours. The same high standards are applied in the composition of its e-liquids as in the historic brand. CirKus e-liquids have more complex and more intense flavours but are produced with a constant eye to traceability and optimal safety.
