A cool melon stone that can be vaped as is or mixed with great results. Unfortunately this recipe does require a substantial steep, but most fruits will blend well with it, like apple strawberry or even banana. I mix it up 200ml at a time and always have a zero nic bottle of it around. I add a squirt of something else like pineapple or menthol and add nicotine. Shake and go. Again, don’t be afraid to vape it solo. It’s good on its own after the steep. Off the shake it kinda tastes like nothing. Definitely needs time but it really blooms.
This is the first variation of the Neon Vaporwave recipe from the Concept to Concentrate series.

About 95% my mixing life all I have worked on is bakery/dessert style recipes, usually with some sort of fruit note (Ruby's Oatz, Key Lime n Piel, etc). Making something that revolved around just a fruit profile is something I have always wanted to put some serious effort into, so why not start now? This is the "fruit" of that labor. It's still a bit in the dessert department, but this is a Melon slush that I think you will really enjoy for the rest of summer.
Fruit Mix: When I SFT'd PUR Watermelon it was pretty dang tasty, but was more of a candied watermelon. I played with LA's as well; but I arrived at a combination of PUR Watermelon, CAP Cantaloupe, and JF Honeydew Melon for the melon mix. Honeydew helps give a sort of natural melon base, with CAP Cantaloupe bridging the gap between them.
Some Slushiness: I played with VT Fizzy Sherbet in a few different recipes. For those that want a good baseline of VT Fizzy Sherbet in a recipe, check out The Spider by StarsandClouds or 7 NUP by pgl55. It really helps imply that effervescence of a soda-type drink. To add a bit more juiciness to it, I added a bit of FA pear to try and make a basic slush base. I'm sure there are better out there, but I like this one personally since Pear will accent the other fruits well anyway. WS-23 helps bring it all home with that nice and cool throat hit.
You can probably get away with a 1-day steep on this, but I like to give it 3 just to let everything settle. I hope you dig it!
This is an ICEY Melon Pineapple mix with some light passionfruit and citrus.
Made on "LIVE MIXING: THE HEAT"
While working on a refreshing melon blend for the summer, I ended up with not only a bold melon, but also a substantial bubblegum note- to my palate at least. This was an accident, and clearly a mistake born of experimenting with flavors I hadn't ever used before. That being said, I'm very much enjoying it as is.
Worth noting- this is using TFA Honeydew 1. I have no idea how Honeydew 2 differs, and I strongly suspect that the honeydew in this recipe is what pushes it over the edge into bubblegum territory along with the cantaloupe and fuji apple. For this reason I recommend sticking to Honeydew 1. I also personally enjoy the high percentage of WS-23 30%, but it should be great at any percentage you like.
A dense, mellow cantaloupe vape with fleshy tropical accents.
Created for "Flavor of the Week: Cantaloupe"
FLV Cantaloupe for that rind-free natural cantaloupe top note and some non-dairy almost-creaminess underneath. Under-rated, under-used TFA Jackfruit for an even fleshier body with soft hints of pineapple and mango coming though. It keeps things more interesting than just a straight cantaloupe vape. CAP Cantaloupe blends with the Jackfruit to keep the melon ball rolling though where FLV Cantaloupe starts to drop off in meloniousness and just fades into thick almost creamy softness. This flavor has a tiny bit of some sharp perfumey thing going on briefly in the top note in single-flavor testing, but FLV Cantaloupe is just completely overriding and obliterating that for me. This is the only version out of half a dozen experiments throwing different manufacturers' Cantaloupe flavors on top of this TFA Jackfruit/CAP Cantaloupe base that actually worked and made for a perfectly pleasant vape without any weird off-notes.
BUT, it feels incomplete - which is why the "In Progress" box is checked. Mostly it just needs to be juicier, but rather than going for one of the knee-jerk juicifiying reactions (INW Cactus, etc), I want to try adding pineapple or mango flavors to add acidity while also playing off those notes from the jackfruit, or if that comes off too just generically yellow-orange, maybe a juicier grape, cherry, or dark berry. I wouldn't recommend anyone mix up a big batch of this, but if you're looking to create a cantaloupe-forward recipe, give it try and see if it inspires you.
This is a tangy, mango recipe, fit with tropical fruits and candy sweetness.
