    Introduction to Après

    Après, a top-notch producer of nicotine pouches hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, is known for its innovation, quality, and eco-conscious attitude. Après provides customers with a special flavour experience packaged in a timeless design, making its products stand out in the market.


    By fusing innovation with a focus on natural ingredients, Après has quickly risen through the ranks of nicotine pouches. The brand has also become recognized for its unique, wide-ranging flavours and stunning pastel design. All Après products and packaging are proudly made from plant-based materials, proving the company’s dedication to sustainability. 


    With Après, you can enjoy a fusion of style, quality, and eco-consciousness. Below, our trusted pouch testers (Stephen, James, and Clare) have sampled a variety of Après flavours to offer you an idea of what Après is all about. You’ll learn of the many different formats, taste profiles, and strengths that Après has to offer.

    Après Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    Après nicotine pouches are renowned for their superior quality and commitment to natural ingredients. Cans come in bright pastel colours that match the flavour of the pouches within. Users will end up with either 20 or 22 pouches depending on the can they opt for.


    Après pouches come in a variety of strengths ranging from a lighter 3mg per pouch to a more robust 10mg, catering to both those looking for something mild or strong. With such a diverse range, Après truly provide a superior nicotine experience tailored to your personal preference.

    Après Pouches & Can Design

    Can & Design

    Every Après canister is carefully designed, with a specific colour and number assigned to each flavour. This colour-coded system makes it easy to spot your favourite pouches. 


    For example, Après No. 4 sports a stunning light brown pastel, perfectly matching its Cola flavour. No. 5 swaps out brown for a soft peachy pastel, perfectly aligning with its Ice Tea Peach flavour. The numbering system and colour coding create an intuitive, user-friendly experience.


    Après cans offer the perfect fit and feel, too. They are slim and lightweight, able to fit snugly in your favourite pair of jeans, and the labels on the cans are made from ultra-soft, high-quality paper. Add it all up, and you get a luxurious, eco-friendly can nestled in your pocket.


    Pouches

    Après Slim and Mini pouches strike a perfect balance between comfort and convenience. The Mini pouches are extremely lightweight, weighing in at just 0.4g, while the Slim pouches have a bit more substance to them at 0.65g. This weight calibration shows how committed Après is to giving you a bespoke user experience. 


    When it comes to choosing between the Mini and Slim versions, it's all about personal preference. Either way, you're guaranteed an unbeatable nicotine experience.

    Après Flavours: What's Available and What's Good?

    Après offers a delightful range of eight distinct flavours, including Cactus Lime, Cola, Ice Tea Peach, Lemon Curd, Menthol, Mint, Raspberry Liquorice, and Tangerine. All these flavours offer unique characteristics and flavour profiles. 


    We've made sure to highlight the main undertones and dominant flavours for each product reviewed. For instance, some have fruity hints while others are a tad minty.


    My favourite flavour was the Ice Tea Peach. It's fruity and packs just enough of a lemony punch to make you start reminiscing about summer!

    James' Review of Après

    I was pleasantly surprised by the Après nicotine pouches. Gotta say, the French design is like nothing I’ve ever seen before, with welcoming pastel colours. The citrus options with the Lemon Curd and Cactus Lime were great. There was also a great range of different strengths.

    Pros:
    1. The packaging is top-notch. So sleek, and fits right in my pocket.

    2. The taste is refreshing and not too overwhelming. I was happy there were a few citrus options.
       

    Cons:
    1. The flavours are a bit simple, especially the Cola. More undertones would be nice.

    2. Sort of weak in the strength department. I’m often looking for something stronger.
       

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Clare's Review of Après

    Après is one of my go-to brands. Each can is literally designed like a French painting—so much thought and care clearly went into it! Best of all, they’ve got strengths for all different types of people. Sometimes I want something a little weaker, and they’ve got it!

    Pros:
    1. Probably one of the nicest designs I’ve seen. Love the pastel!

    2. Super smooth packaging.

    3. A delightful range of both flavours and milder strengths.
       

    Cons:
    1. Sometimes I like something a bit mintier. I found their minty flavours didn’t have quite the kick I wanted.

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Après Product Taste Test:

    Après Cactus Lime Flavour

    Stephen: As someone who loves both mint and citrus, I was excited to try this flavour. And it did not disappoint! There was a cooling sensation that came on strong. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: Fusing mint and citrus can be tricky, but Après nailed it. The taste was refreshing without being overwhelming. And they had it in 10mg—still not as strong as I like it, but better than their weaker options. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: The fresh mint taste in this flavour was fantastic, and the pouches were soft and comfortable in my mouth. I really enjoy the wetness of the pouches! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Après Cola Flavour

    Stephen: A bit too one-note for my liking. It would have been nice if there was more to the taste than just cola. But maybe soda enthusiasts would like it! Score: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: I’m not much of a cola guy, so this wasn’t for me. The flavour did last a long time, though, which was cool. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: This flavour just wasn't for me. The taste was too overpowering. However, I can see how those who love soda might enjoy it. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Après Lemon Curd Flavour

    Stephen: Citrusy and fruity? What more could I ask for? Two of my favourite flavours combined in a smash hit for Après! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: The name threw me off a bit, but after trying Après Lemon Curd, I’ll admit the flavour was quite good. Only a 5mg option though? Not strong enough for me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: The taste was great, but I would’ve appreciated a less sour hit. Also, they only have this flavour in 5mg, so there’s not much variety in strength. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.8/5

    Après Ice Tea Peach Flavour

    Stephen: The fruitiness blew me away. One of the best fruit-forward pouches on the market, hands down. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: Very, very sweet, although that’s not necessarily a bad thing. And while it’s pretty cool that you can get Ice Tea Peach in three different strengths, I still want something stronger. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: My favourite flavour, hands down. Like popping a perfectly ripe peach right under your tongue. Bravo, Après! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Après Mint Flavour

    Stephen: The minty flavour was a bit too subtle for me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: The minty aftertaste stays in your mouth for a while, so that’s good. But only a 5mg option? Please, up the strength for us seasoned pouch users! Rating: ⭐⭐ 2/5


    Clare: I’m definitely a mint gal, so I enjoyed this one. Could’ve had a bit more of an icy kick though! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Après Raspberry Liquorice Flavour

    Stephen: I don’t normally enjoy liquorice-flavoured pouches, but the fruitiness of the raspberry balances with it so perfectly. A pleasant surprise! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: This flavour caught me by surprise. I suggest it for people who want to try something new. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: It wasn’t a favourite of mine, but I can see how others would like it. One good thing? They offer the Raspberry Liquorice in both 3mg and 8mg strength, which is pretty cool! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5

    Après Tangerine Flavour

    Stephen: Super fruity and delicious, but they could afford to have a stronger option. 5mg is just a tad too mild for me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: The Après Tangerine flavour was pretty delicious. Just fruity enough. But once again, I’m not thrilled with the strength choices. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: One of my favourite flavours hands down. Fruity, reminiscent of a bright summer day, and just enough nicotine! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Après Very Berry

    Stephen: Oh my. This is an all-time flavour for me. I can literally taste the strawberry and blackberry dancing in my mouth. Fantastic! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: This flavour leans on the sweeter side. If you like a very sweet fruit cocktail, like one with added sugar, you'll enjoy this. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Fantastic! It's literally bursting with fresh berry flavours. It's definitely a touch sweet, but I still loved it. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    The Wombat Verdict – The Après Range

    Overall, our taste testers enjoyed the Après nicotine pouches a great deal. The flavours were unique, fruity, and offered a wide range of different strengths. There was truly something for everyone!


    If you're new to pouches or looking for a milder option, we recommend trying out Après Menthol, which comes in 3mg, 5mg, and 10mg options. If you prefer something fruity and delicious, try Ice Teach Peach. And if you’re looking for a wonderfully pleasant surprise, look no further than Après Raspberry Liquorice!
