What are HEETS?

HEETS offers a range of taste experiences from rich to refined, including tobacco with menthol and new aromatic tobacco blends to cater to every taste palate.

A new
tobacco taste experience.

With HEETS the tobacco is not burnt, but heated. HEETS release a real tobacco taste that is different and less harsh, than what you are used to with a cigarette. HEETS have no smoke, no ash and less smell than cigarettes. Smokers who have switched to IQOS say that there is less unpleasant feeling and aftertaste left in their mouth compared to after finishing smoking a cigarette.*

*IMPORTANT INFORMATION: IQOS is not risk free. See important information page.* Source: Online survey conducted by third-party research agencies in 2015, 2016 and 2017 among 3.344 IQOS users in Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Romania and Russia.

Tobacco taste.

To create the HEETS sticks and bring you a high quality tobacco taste experience, Philip Morris International uses the latest in design, materials and technology innovations. HEETS feature a clever construction that consists of 5 parts, each with a very special function.

are made.

Tobacco in every HEETS stick is prepared using a processing method called ‘cast leaf process’ to optimize the tobacco for heating. The tobacco leaves are ground into powder and reconstituted into tobacco sheets. These sheets are crimped and made into a tobacco plug which, combined with all the other parts, creates a HEETS stick

How long does a HEETS last?

IQOS monitors the temperature and number of puffs of each HEETS stick to ensure an optimal balance between stick heating temperature and duration.​

As the HEETS taste is different, and less harsh than what you are used to with cigarettes, you may be inclined to puff more frequently. However longer and gentler puffs would extend the duration and increase the tobacco taste experience from your HEETS.
