Smoke Ghost Sploof Review
My iPhone Photos of the Smoke Ghost
As with all reviews, I take a few photos of each product in real lighting situations so you can get an idea of what the item looks like without the glamour of a light box and/or Photoshop. Below are 6 photos I look of the Smoke Ghost sent to me by the guys at smokeghost.com.

What is Smoke Ghost?
Simply put, Smoke Ghost masks the odor of the smoke you exhale with aromatic fragrances. This essentially means that you can smoke anywhere in the world without leaving a trace. Here is a short summary of all the benefits and features the little Ghost provides:
- Prevents second-hand smoke
- Saves environment from polluting and carcinogenic toxins
- Contains interchangeable scent cartridges
- Masks odor of smoke completely, can be used indoors and in vehicles
- Portable, under 3 inches long and under 2 inches thick
Now let’s delve deeper into the Ghost’s power.
You may have seen similar smoking filters that attempt to deal with the smell of smoke. Smoke Ghost is distinct in that it not only filters your smoke but it alters the scent of your smoke into essential oil fragrances. The oil fragrances not only smell delightful, they combat the smell of the burning end of the substance you’re smoking in order to fully mask the smell.
The nozzle component of the Ghost contains a carbon filter that cleanses the smoke as you blow through. The nozzle is wide enough at the base (about 1.5 inches) to encapsulate your lips as the smoke leaves your mouth. This means that all of the smoke passes through the nozzle.
The first component of the device is the nozzle, the second component is the scent cartridge, the magical part. The scent cartridge contains an essential oils compound that radically transforms the odor of your smoke. This stuff smells sweet.
One of the most awesome features of these scent cartridges is that they’re interchangeable. Every scent cartridge is compatible with the filter. Typically, a scent cartridge is 100% efficient in altering smoke odor for around 300 blow throughs (this is for our current prototype, we expect to increase this number once the first PO is placed). After this point, the cartridge gradually declines in efficacy. So once one scent cartridge begins to decline in potency, you can simply replace it with another. This adds even more life to your Ghost.
Smoking With Style’s Smoke Ghost Sploof Review
I had one of my most avid smokers (KC) try out the Smoke Ghost over the weekend with minimal results.
Took a puff, blew through it, and I don’t think it disguised it at all.
-KC, SWS Reviewer
As the above quote alludes to, he didn’t have much success with it. Aside from the usually issues such as side stream smoke, he didn’t think it helped 100% even with the smoke blown through the unit.
I had KC give the Smoke Ghost to a 2nd smoke with the same results. She said that dryer sheets inside of a toilet paper or paper towel roll (the original sploof) worked better. KC had her take a hit and blow it into his face. He could still smell the cannabis and felt like the scent was basically a mix of the two smells together.
All of this with a price tag of $19.99, led me to give the Smoke Ghost a 3 out of 5 stars. It makes for a great gift, but it’s not particularly practical.
