The series debuted in limited regions on April 4 of the same year, and the sales area was expanded nationwide on July 12, but this lineup expansion is common nationwide. All SENTIA smokers will have more choices.

The brand of SENTIA was linked to the 11 flavors currently being developed in HEETS of the old device IQOS 3 Duo, but now that there are 12 flavors, the number of “HEETS” lineups has exceeded, and the content has been enhanced at once. In this article, we will compare all 12 stocks and highlight their characteristics.

SENTIA is a new option for the “IQOS ILUMA” exclusive stick, which was previously only available in the TEREA series. The biggest attraction is that one box (20 bottles) of TEREA costs 580 yen including tax, while SENTIA is 530 yen including tax, which is 50 yen cheaper.

In other words, SENTIA is positioned like the low-priced version of the “Marlboro Heat Stick” (600 yen including tax) dedicated to “old IQOS” such as “IQOS 3 Duo” “HEETS” (550 yen including tax). For “IQOS ILUMA” users who loved “HEETS” in the “old IQOS”, it can be said that it is a long-awaited brand.

Like the TEREA, the Sentia cannot be smoked on older models with heating blades such as the IQOS 3 Duo and IQOS 3 Multi.

 

Compare the 12 flavors of SENTIA!

It’s good that the price is low, but what bothers me is the taste of SENTIA. The lineup of 12 flavors consists of 4 regular, 4 menthol, and 4 flavored menthol.

I mentioned earlier that the package design of SENTIA is similar to HEETS, and you can feel the remnants of it in each flavor name. For example, the regular type Sentia Deep Bronze has the same flavor name as “HEETS Deep Bronze” and the package color is also a darker brown. This is also interesting.

So, we will compare each of them and report on the taste characteristics and transfer guidance from each brand.

●Regular type

SENTIA Deep Bronze


“Sentia Deep Bronze” [Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●●● Rich: ●●●○○ Strength: ●●●●○

What is impressive about the taste of “Sentia Deep Bronze” is the solid body feel. The slightly dark brown package also convinces with a wild and woody taste. At the same time, you can feel the lack of miscellaneous taste typical of “IQOS ILUMA”.

It has a tough and straight taste, but it is clear and has no negative thorns. The aftertaste that remains in the throat after smoking is mild but plump, and the volume is comparable to that of cigarettes. It can be said that it is the most recommended flavor for those who seek a royal tobacco taste.

“Marlboro Heatstick Rich Regular” and
“HEETS Deep Bronze”

Sentia Pure Teaque


“Sentia Pure Teaque”
[Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●●○ Rich: ●●●○○ Strength: ●●●●○

Like “HEETS Pure Teaque”, the catchphrase is “exquisite harmony of gentle taste and aroma”, and while it has a royal taste like tobacco, it is suppressed with a mild and gentle taste.

It’s not as strong as Sentia Deep Bronze, but not as light as Sentia Clear Silver. In addition, the taste of cigarettes is more orthodox than “SENTIA Balanced Yellow”, which will be described later. It is recommended for those who like a plain taste, are not too light, and want to enjoy a moderate sucking response.

Faint acidity and mild umami “Sentia Balanced Yellow”


“Sentia Balanced Yellow”
[Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●●● Rich: ●●●○○○ Strength: ●●●○○

Although it is a royal regular type, it has a slightly refreshing aroma and sourness in “Sentia Balanced Yellow”. This sourness, somewhat reminiscent of fruit, may be expressed in the yellow naming and packaging.

As for the taste, in addition to acidity, there is a mild umami, and it is an exquisite position that can be nod to the name “balanced”. It can be said that it is perfect for those who are regular but want freshness, but are not good at menthol.

“Sentia Clear Silver” [Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●○○○ Rich: ●●○○○ Strength: ●●○○○

“Sentia Clear Silver” has a pleasant roasting aroma characteristic of the regular type, but it has a light and clear impression with a faint acidity. While the overall tone of taste is suppressed, the taste of royal tobacco is fully felt from the top to the aftertaste.

It is gentle and refreshing to smoke, and is suitable for those who like mild~light cigarettes. In terms of the TEREA series, I think the taste is suitable for “Smooth Regular”.

“Sentia Frost Green” is a menthol type that combines a strong menthol flavor with a mild tobacco feeling. The refreshing sensation that comes out after sucking is pleasant, and it is characterized by a fresh taste reminiscent of peppermint.

It doesn’t have a kinky menthol feeling like the aforementioned “Sentia Icy Black”, and the taste is firm. That said, the coolness is vivid, so it’s recommended for those who want a thick body and a solid menthol.

“Sentia Fresh Emerald” is a menthol type that harmonizes a pleasant herbal menthol with a mild tobacco feel. Overall, the flavor is gentle, but the taste and mint are well balanced.

Recently, while the popularity of the vivid menthol type is increasing, there must be many people who are not good at its power. In that respect, this flavor, which has a suppressed sense of exhilaration, has just the right volume for light smokers. It can be said that it is recommended for those who seek mellow menthol cigarettes.

●Flavored menthol type

Sentia Icy Purple


“Sentia Icy Purple”
[Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●● Richness: ●●●●○○ Strength of menthol: ●●●●●

As the name “Icy ” suggests, you can enjoy a powerful cooling sensation like “Sentia Icy Black” with “Sentia Icy Purple”. What is impressive is the subtle fruit taste of berries in the bright mint flavor. It is finished in a fruity and vivid flavored menthol, and I think it is the closest taste to “TEREA Black Purple Menthol”.

Basically, SENTIA has a taste that follows each flavor of “HEETS”, but only “Sentia Icy Purple” has a unique taste that “HEETS” does not have. For users who prefer berry varieties, it is a nice option.

Sentia Fresh Purple


“Sentia Fresh Purple” [Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●○○ Rich: ●●●●○ Strength: ●●●●○

Taking advantage of the gradation of purple and emerald green, the package design of “Sentia Fresh Purple” is impressive. As for the taste, it has a berry-type flavor with a grape-like fruit flavor and rich mint nuances.

The impression is that the invigorating feeling of menthol is accompanied by the sweet aroma of berries, and it has a pleasant sucking response. I think it is one that simply harmonizes the relaxing element of berries and the refreshing element of mint.

SENTIA Citrus Green


“Sentia Citrus Green” [Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●○○ Rich: ●●●●○ Strength: ●●●●○

“Sentia Citrus Green” is a citrus menthol with a refreshing aftertaste. Like “HEETS Citrus Green”, it is characterized by a citrus flavor that stands out with a menthol character.

However, “Sentia Citrus Green” has the impression that it has less miscellaneous taste, and I feel that this is due to the merits of “IQOS ILUMA”, but in any case, I feel that it has evolved. Flavored menthol with a purer, subtle citrus acidity. That is “Sentia Citrus Green”.

Recommended for those who smoke “TEREA Yellow Menthol”, “Marlboro Heatstick Yellow Menthol”, “Marlboro Heatstick Bright Menthol”,
and “HEETS Citrus Green”

Sentia Tropical Yellow


“Sentia Tropical Yellow” [Taste DATA] Aroma: ●●●●○ Rich: ●●●○○ Strength of menthol: ●●●●○

Reminiscent of tropical fruits and resort feeling, the upper flavor is “Sentia Tropical Yellow”. Along with firm menthol, juicy fruitiness reminiscent of mango, coconut and pineapple coexist to create a rich flavored menthol.

Even though it is tropical, the sweetness is modest and the tobacco feeling is firm. “You don’t feel the chemical flavor of flavor, but you can enjoy the tropical flavor”, which is a perfection that follows the tropical flavor so far, and I think it is a taste that beginners and women will like.

【Summary】SENTIA has a lighter impression than TEREA, but it is not cheap at all!

With the addition of "Sentia" for 530 yen per box, the popularity of "IQOS ILUMA" has increased even more!
With the addition of SENTIA for 530 yen per box, the popularity of “IQOS ILUMA” has increased even more!

This time, I compared the high-end brand TEREA and the low-priced brand SENTIA. What I felt the most was that SENTIA was a little light in its sucking response overall. However, the reduction of “strange odor (so-called popcorn smell)”, which is the charm of “IQOS ILUMA”, is still alive and well, as was the TEREA, and I felt the clear taste unique to “IQOS ILUMA”.

How you feel about the difference of 50 yen depends on the individual, but there is no cheapness in SENTIA. I thought that SENTIA was enough as an option to switch from TEREA to reduce running costs.

The six new Sentia brands will be rolled out nationwide from October 25, 2022. The sales outlets are as follows.
