Menthol stays with tobacco sticks used with IQOS

As of May 20, 2020, menthol cigarettes are banned in the EU. The ban applies to menthol cigarettes (with and without capsules) and menthol flavored RYO (roll-your-own tobacco). However, it does not affect heated tobacco products (such as tobacco sticks used with IQOS). So menthol flavored heated tobacco sticks for IQOS will continue to be available after May 20, 2020.

Three kinds of menthol flavoured tobacco sticks for IQOS already exist today. The tobacco sticks contain real tobacco and are designed for the same duration and number of puffs as regular cigarettes. You can buy your tobacco sticks for IQOS in our online shop.

Philip Morris has a vision of a smoke-free future. IQOS is our innovative alternative to regular cigarettes. IQOS heats the tobacco instead of burning it, thus releasing the taste of real tobacco without ash, and with less smell. If you want to know more about IQOS, read more here.

Try an alternative to menthol cigarettes has information about products that are only for adults in Denmark, who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products.
