My attempt at creating one of those recipes that changes it's flavor profile depending on how you vape it. Wattage, airflow, and hardware will dictate the specific nuances of this recipe that will be apparent.
FW BEETLE JUICE / VT FIZZY SHERBET - Holy shit, what a combination. If you want something strange, balanced, and indescribable, this mix of flavors creates something beautiful. The Beetle Juice at 2% is giving just the right amount of "fuck everything, throw all the fruits in the bottle" base. There's enough body for this to work on it's own. Adding Fizzy Sherbet at 3% gives us added candy, added brightness, and the right amount of fizzy suggestion to make something awesome. Removing TPA Dragonfruit helps let these two flavors shine, without muting any of those "tip of the tongue" flavors that you know exist, but can't quite define.
TPA GRAPE JUICE / CAP HIBISCUS - I knew I still wanted that back end exhale of grape candy, and letting these two flavors play together gives us just that. The hibiscus is working nicely to add a blend of red sweetness to the mix overall, while preventing the grape from overpowering that exhale. Here, we get the suggestion of a grape exhale, but the candies from the body and inhale still dance on the tongue, only giving the grape enough spotlight for you to know it's there. TPA Grape Juice is a great flavor, but it's finicky. Be careful, high percentages are great to create a strong grape profile from the jump, but when you go low with it, you can truly force it into the background. 0.75% is perfect in this application, but I'd suggest going to 0.5% or lower if you are playing with some more subtle flavors.
FA OBA OBA - While removing all dragonfruits from the mix, we now allow Oba Oba to truly do it's thing. The citrus notes from this flavor play nicely with the tropical parts of Fizzy Sherbet, while adding some brightness and punch to the Beetle Juice. Also, that suggestion of chewy candy that Oba Oba has really helps prevent this mix from being a beverage, but doesn't stand out enough to TRULY be a chewy candy profile. More ambiguity, more success.
FA LIME TAHITY COLD PRESS / FLV PINK GUAVA - If you haven't tried pushing FA LTCP to higher percentages, please give it a try sometime. You get some nice lime flavor, but it doesn't assault your tastebuds like using a few drops of INW Lime. There is some great suggestions of bitter lime zest, but overall, you're getting a sweet lime candy. Finally, I thought that adding a small amount of FLV Pink Guava would just really awaken this mix, and it does. I've had trouble using this flavor in the past, it tends to just make everything muted and you only get this smack to the face of guava. But here, in low percentages, you know it's there without only tasting it. I've noted it's more potent in the beginning of the experience, but steps down as soon as you get a full inhale. So it's brightening up all those ambiguous fruit notes quite nicely, while also creating a subtle bitterness on the exhale to reset your palate on long sessions with this recipe.
Vaping this mix at lower wattage gives the Beetle Juice a lot more room to shine, where the overall profile feels more like a rainbow sherbet mix, sans the true ice cream mouthfeel. It's fruity and sweet, with just the right amount of brightness. Vaping it higher accentuates the Pink Guava, bringing out more tropical notes from the Fizzy Sherbet and LTCP. When you close off the airflow a bit, you pick up more of the berry nuances, pink guava on the back of the tongue, and grape exhale. Wide open airflow is like a tropical fruit juice with pop rocks hidden in the mix.
I think this was a success. Now, I'm very fucking tired. But here we are. Hopefully, my insanity will bring you some benefit. I hope you enjoy this mix, but if you don't that's cool too. This is Amorphous, an attempt at my more recent "white whale" of creating a strange mix that changes as you vape, and never truly gives up it's identity. For me, it feels like a 90% success. If I go back to this, I will try to add a bit more potency to the flavor, as a whole. But for now, it's quite strong, changes like I want based on vaping specifications, and is one of my favorite mixes of 2019.
A Celebration of INW Milk Choc OG - R.I.P. 2017
Chocolate Layer INW Milk Choc OG and FW Milk choc creates a fairly realistic milk choc base and I have added some vanillin to add a bit more body... and by fairly realistic I mean as close as the concentrates at our disposal and my efforts to create a realistic milk chocolate got me.
INW Milk Choc translates more to a homemade chocolate milk to me than the real thing, but apart from perhaps MF Chocolate, this is a good as it gets. FW Milk choc has a plastic-y quality to to that with quite a tame milk choc flavour, I am using the to bend the INW to a commercial milk choc texture... the result is far from fantastic but yeah what ever... I used vanillin... no idea what brand, so lets pretend it TFA :) and sweetener is kind of a must here.
Candy Shell I am using a combination of FW VBIC, FW Jawbreaker and FA oba oba to achieve this. I wont claim its fantastic but does translate loosely to a candy shell. I have added a drop or two of FA Meringue for good measure. I am not sure if it really made a difference here, but I like the recipe as is and with limited amounts of INW Milk choc left I am not going to start experimenting,
Gummi, gooey goodness
I used a simple combination of fw swedish and fa rose to create the almost non-descript floral jelly candy flavour.
yeah so that is it, I hope this is not too disappointing a recipe - Look its a pleasant profile and a fun vape and anyone who have worked with chocolates know the milk choc territory is pretty much undefeated - hope you enjoy
love the contrast of light during sunset as the last light of day begins to be shrouded by the darkness of night. For me it is the most magical and romantic time of day. I wanted to create a mix that provided a contrast such as this
On the inhale you get the slightly sweet peach nectar and oba oba which is contrasted against the tart grapefruit note of the pink guava on he exhale.
The sparkling wine and blood orange sit in the middle of this mix bridging the peach nectar to the pink guava
The golden syrup create a slightly darker base not in this mix
Th is a pleasant citrus ADV if this is a flavor profile in your wheel house give it a go
I added a touch of super sweet to this mix at 0.30 % to get the bright notes to pop even more
(Edited to fill the meet the parameters of the challenge. Swapped the INW Pineapple for CAP Juicy Orange and bumped the CAP Honeydew a %.)
A Smooth Tropical Melon. CAP Sweet Mango is the main note. CAP Sweet Guava to deepen it a bit and give it some sweetness. CAP Honeydew Melon rounds off the edges of the Mango & Guava while making it slightly juicier. FA Oba Oba makes the melons pop and creates more mouthfeel. CAP Juicy Orange for some juicy tangyness. PUR Super Sweet at 0.50% which could go higher, but I like my coils and works for my palette.
A refreshing and Thick Ripe Mango & Orange Liqui-Fruit style of Fruit juice.
This single concentrate Screams with that Super Delicious Ripe juice that you normally get from a perfectly Ripe Mango. Not only does it smell great, Its a spot on in taste, Thick and sweet -RIPE mango that leaves that delicious Ripe Sweet Mango aftertaste.
INW Shisha Orange - The most vibrant and realistic Fresh Orange FRUIT concentrate in my arsenal!! this adds that in your face orange zest vibe to the mix. but be careful , This orange can leave a bit of funny chemically taste if you use it too high in %, I generally stick to the .5-1.5% range on it.
CAP Juicy Orange - Another great Orange, this one brings in more of that Orange Juice feel instead of a Orange Fruit feel. So I used this to boost that orange from INW without having to increase the INW orange.
FA Blood Orange - Another awesome Orange, add everything else that the other oranges are missing
CAP Sweet Tangerine - Such a nice Natural sweetner, I just love this Spot on Sweet Ripeness thats so reminiscent of a perfectly ripened and Sweet Juicy Tangerine.
This is where Im getting that Sweet Syrupy Citrus vibe from, its not enough to over power the Orange, but the sweetness is definitely more prominent compared to the more Zesty or Tartness that the Orange has.
Oba Oba there to aid on a Fuller Feel, but this also blends the Citrus more into a creamy combo.
WS23 Increase or Decrease to your preference
SS - Add if you want to, I did
Update - Replaced CBE Double mango with FE Mango
Ive been craving a nice lite and Sweet Tangerine Citrus Juice for a good while now.
The 1st 2 versions did not work out too well as the citrus combo I was using seemed to have homogenized into a PET bottle Nuke of note, Its Cracked 3 PET Bottles in One day alone so I had to try a few different Citrus combos to get the right profile flavor profile. I also always had an issue with the texture profile of the juice, So I added some jelly to make my Fresh Fruit a Fresh Fruit Jelly.
The Sweet Tangerine was the main profile I was aiming for so I started with that and built the other citrus around this. Sweet Tangerine just has that Great Light and Clear; Sweet Citrus without killing it on that tart side.
Blood Orange I used here to push a bit more of that Vitamin C vibe from a sweet ripe Orange. I just boosts the Tangerine profile some more.
Lemon Sicily layers that Zesty Pop into the middle and and stretches the freshness into the steep
Well its for a Jelly Texture that candifies this Fresh Fruit.
using it as the blender and also to soften the Citrus Harshness with the Combo of Oba Oba.
Fruits can sometimes be quite flat, this is where I normally use a cream like cream fresh, but here I needed something different to work with the Citrus in the same way as Cream backdrop but without any milky/dairy notes. Oba Oba has a special subtle fizz that compliments and boosts a vibrant fruit in strange ways. The magic about this is that it does something special in a different way with different fruits, here is Pushes that Thickness of the Jelly Candy and also works with the Peach to Bind and Shave off some harshness.
**This recipe was inspired by a few techniques I saw from a Few amazing mixers who used some of these concentrates in awesome ways, So All credit to the DIY Community with people like Ediblemalfunction , Dazcole and Chrisdvr1 and of course Richard (RichJB) for all his advice and pointers on some issues I had with this one!
- Added 0.44 TPA Marshmallow
- Dropped the Jelly Candy from 3.33 to 1.77
Eating an end of summer blue raspberry popsicle made me want to do some research on the flavor. None of the blue raspberry recipes or concentrates I've tried quite nail that fully saturated blue raspberry flavor.
I read all of the usual articles out there that give the history of the blue color after FD&C Red No. 2 was found to be carcinogenic. These articles also told the story of the rubus leucodermis, more commonly known as the "whitebark raspberry" or "blue raspberry". None of the articles actually delved deep enough to mention the actual aromas/flavors used in popsicle/candy making that make up the profile.....but one.
I spent some time balancing this and eating popsicles to try and get it right. I hope you all enjoy it. I got some serious brain freeze just for you.
The flavors I've used here are generally what the candy industry uses to concoct a blue raspberry. Pineapple, banana and cherry.
I chose INW Pineapple and CAP Golden Pineapple because it gives what I feel is a nice sweet balanced pineapple to build upon.
For the banana I knew I wanted something that was a good banana that would fit in the mix and work well with the other fruits. I arrived at HS after the other few bananas I tried stuck out like a runty whore in church.
INW Cherries was a no brainer. It's my favorite cherry and doesn't bring a bunch of medicinal baggage to try and mask. The problem I had was keeping it low enough so that it blended in like a sniper in a ghillie suit. My first few batches were very cherry forward and it stepped all over the pineapple/banana instead of working with it.
FA Oba Oba and CAP Hibiscus bring the sticky syrupy sweetness to the party.
You can add your preferred amount of whatever coolant you want if that's your thing. I left it out when developing the recipe so I could taste what was going on. WS-23 gives me heartburn much over 0.75% but would be my choice here.
