IQOS delivers a satisfying taste and experience tailored to smokers looking to quit by heating real tobacco instead of burning it. Explore the IQOS range below:
IQOS is brought to the market by Philip Morris International: a tobacco company focused on building a smoke-free future. Over 900 PMI employees, including scientists, engineers and technicians, work specifically on smoke-free products like the popular IQOS range.
IQOS is a heat-not-burn product that uses real tobacco. The key difference is that, instead of burning said tobacco as is standard in combustible cigarettes, the IQOS device heats tobacco (up to 350°C, in fact!). IQOS has gone through years of scientific assessments involving thousands of participants to make the product you see here today.
How Does IQOS Work?
IQOS devices use specially-made tobacco sticks. There are two ranges: HEETS and TEREA. HEETS are used with bladed IQOS devices, including the IQOS Originals DUO, while TEREA Sticks are used with bladeless IQOS devices including the ILUMA and ILUMA ONE.
The tobacco sticks are inserted into your IQOS holder. From there, the tobacco stick is heated; either via contact with a ceramic-coated blade or via electromagnetic conduction (TEREA only). Once heated, the light will glow solid. Use your IQOS as you would a cigarette; by inhaling on the filter of your HEETS or TEREA stick.
Once the experience is finished, remove the used stick and dispose of it. Your IQOS holder can be placed in your portable charger, ensuring it's ready for the next time.
Explore The IQOS Range
IQOS HEETS sticks are available in ten flavours, each of which contains a unique tobacco blend ranging from ice-infused menthol tobacco to rich malt-like blends. We recommend starting with Amber HEETS or Blue HEETS!
IQOS TEREA Sticks are available in nine flavours and closely replicate the flavour profiles from the aforementioned HEETS range. This range utilises SMARTCORE INDUCTION™, heating each stick from within for a smoother feel.

Frequently Asked Questions
As the IQOS is smoke-free, the smell it produces is a lot less potent than traditional cigarettes. It's not entirely odourless; however, rest assured the aroma is not the same, nor does it linger.
Both the Originals Duo and the Iluma can be reset by placing the holder in the charging case and pressing and holding the button on the case for 10 seconds. The lights will then turn off, blink twice, and turn on again to confirm the reset. However, the IQOS Iluma One only needs to be pressed for 7 seconds for a factory reset.
Although HEETS and TEREA sticks resemble cigarettes, these cannot actually be smoked, as they are meant for use with the IQOS devices. The tobacco inside the sticks is also soaked in vegetable glycerin to create an aerosol-like vapour, not smoke.
