its muscular arm logo firmly emblazoned on the packaging, ‘Fist’
is one brand of poppers that is happy to wear its heart on its
sleeve. Just sit back and watch the awed reaction this bad boy
gets when you proudly pull out the over sized bottle to share
with your friends. Recent experimentation with this product
immediately brought to mind the scent of over ripe fruit, even
inspiring one friend, not usually known for his eloquence, to
suggest that the main olfactory flavour evident in the heady
mixture reminded him of "bruised apples mixed with
The 25ml bottle means that this is a product ideally suited
for what some turned on popper fans have taken to calling ‘dropping
the fizzy’. This an arcane form of Isopropyl alchemy that
involves placing around 5mls of your chosen room odoriser into
a small amount of carbonated fluid, before vigorously shaking
the mixture and allowing the fumes to infiltrate the party environment.
Within seconds the charming scent will immediately bring to
mind the chemicals used to clean local authority swimming pools
after an afternoon mother and toddler aqua-aerobics session.
Wait a little while longer however and you will notice a cloud
of delightful disorientation hanging over your table, your friends
acting like they have just experienced an unexpected, but joyful
punch to the back of the head. This product is the sole reason
why the colloquial term ‘fisting’ has passed into
common usage among my own circle of fellow nitrate enthusiasts.
In short, this is a room odoriser best suited for use in a heavy
leather club situated in Dante’s 9th Circle of Hell and
is probably best enjoyed to a soundtrack of industrial techno
played at ear splitting volume. If ‘Fist’ were a
fictional character it would be Al Pacino as the sexually confused
undercover cop in the 70’s classic Cruising.
Although specifically targeted at the gay market, any heterosexual
put off by the lurid packaging is missing out on one of the
best popper experiences currently available. Personally, I would
strongly encourage them to join in the spirit of experimentation
and jump aboard the ‘Fist’ bandwagon. .
