A very powerful, crisp, floral strawberry note. Almost cooling. I'd say it's not so much that it tastes floral, as much as it is that it hits you in the same spot that a floral would (if that makes sense). I feel this may be a good strawberry for folks that have trouble tasting strawberry (although I cannot confirm this since I can taste strawberry). Makes for a great top note, but does not work well with creams/custards, so you will need to most likely pair this with florals, tobaccos, earth notes, other fruits etc.
So, let's address the elephant in the room: the price point. This is easily the most expensive concentrate I've worked with. Typically with super expensive concentrates, they are super concentrated. This one is moderately concnetrated, being used in most of my recipes from 0.5%-1.5%. It doesn't pair with typical Strawberry pairings as well, but it is surely one that will not fade out on you. I love the actual flavor of this concentrate, but I can imagine that this type of strawberry flavor is not for everyone.
It's hard for me to recommend this one way or the other. For me, I'm not too concerned with price as long as I enjoy the flavoring, so for someone like me it's a great addition to your flavor arsenal; for others it will be very hard to justify spending what is basically an entire orders budget on one flavoring.
On the Nose

Not being a fan of Kiwi, I was caught a bit off guard when my friend asked for a liquid with that,and Strawberry. I decided to use 2 of the lesser used Strawberry concentrates from my inventory, for 2 reasons... to see what I could do with them,and to...use them! Kiwi(Double) was an easy choice because it's the only one I have! I made 3 testers for him to try, with this version receiving the go ahead. The Alpine Strawberry and Dragonfruit gave the two, otherwise uncommon, SB pairings just what they needed to complete this task. I worked my way up with the Kiwi,having started at 1%. Add a little polish with the CAP SS, and done! If your a Kiwi fan I'd appreciate some feedback on this one. Thanks!
Sweet Strawberry and Kiwi mingled into one nice Hard Candy! I made this mix on a whim, and after a few adjustments, I've been in love with it since.
Tested on a Cthulu 1928 MTL RDA / Pasito Pod RBA 15w 6 wraps 2mm 25mg/mL Nicotine
FA Kiwi - I found this to be a wonderful sweet kiwi flavour. It ended up really mixing in well with CAP Sweet Strawberry and made for a delicious mix on its own, but I wanted to take it up a notch.
CAP Sweet Strawberry & FLV Alpine Strawberry - I've found that these two strawberries are AMAZING in pod / MTL devices. Seriously, if you have these flavours and are a Pod / MTL user, give it a try in any type of mix. These two also mixed very well with FA Kiwi, and laid down the foundation for the mix.
FW Hard Candy - This is a pretty weird flavour to work with, and I had to tinker with it a touch to actually get where I wanted it to be. This brings in a hard candy element that tones down a lot of the more natural notes that come in from FLV Alpine Strawberry, and bring an overall sweetness to the mix.
As always, make sure to leave a review if you can! It helps me develop more recipes and I love feedback.
My Girlfriend has always been pestering me about strawberries since I started DIY. I have always utterly failed in that aspect, and I was about to give up until I got my hands on some FLV Alpine Strawberry. I had to do a handful of test mixes, but finally, I am proud to present a strawberry recipe that I am not ashamed to put out in public, and is GF approved!
This mix has a sweet & cold country-time lemonade inhale, with a nice ripe and fresh strawberry following through on the exhale.
Tested on a Cthulu 1928 MTL RDA / Pasito Pod RBA 15w 6 wraps 2mm 25mg/mL Nicotine
LA Lemonade & FLV Lemonade - These two have essentially been my go-to for mixing lemonade for low powered devices. It doesn't stray too far from being a powdered lemonade, but it also doesn't straight up taste like it just came from a tub. I find it to be a really nice middle ground that I am super satisfied with.
CAP Sweet Strawberry - FLV Alpine Strawberry is great, but I think it is a pretty authentic strawberry. I debated on a few different strawberries to help with this, and finally came to CAP Sweet Strawberry. It introduces a sugary aspect that layers over FLV Alpine very nicely, and also still keeps FLV Alpine Strawberries authentic aspects in tow.
FLV Alpine Strawberry - The star strawberry of the show. I haven't made too many mixes with it yet, but people are definitely not wrong when they say a little will go a long way. FLV Alpine brings in a really nice and potent authentic strawberry flavour that mixes very well with CAP Sweet Strawberry & the Lemonades. I highly recommend getting this if you can, it is a bit pricey but it is well worth it.
WS-23 - Lemonade needs to be cool. Adjust the % to your liking
CAP Super Sweet - A touch of sweetness is obviously needed. Adjust % to your liking as well.
Hope you enjoy this mix! Let me know your thoughts if you mix it up :)
Strawberries and cream
I have come a long way in the past 6 months as a mixer and felt it was time to revisit the profile. Fresh ideas and a better stash.
(To anyone who suffered my old strawberry delight recipe, this is my apology)
To be begin with, I made a 10% dilution of FLV Alpine Strawberry with pg. Added 0.1g of that 10% dilution which equals out to 0.01% of actual flavor into my 10ml tester.
4% tfa strawberry ripe really fills in the rest of the strawberry notes. It's also still my single favorite strawberry.
Now, as for the cream and body, I went with a 1:1 FLV Cream and Marshmallow Vanilla which is good by itself but I found that it needed a bit of heaviness. Something to fill in the bottom. Custard really brought the more pudding-like cream that I really wanted for this.
Time: To be honest, after mixing this up I forgot about it on the shelf. I finally remembered 12 days later. Protip: always write the date it was mixed up on the bottle because otherwise I wouldn't have known how long it had been there.
Tested on Haku Venna @.30 ohm 45 watts.
So I took my Bourberry Jam, took out the bourbon, and added a yummy yogurt cream base with blueberry and Granola to make this delicious Jam Berry Yogurt Parfait.
How does only 1 percent of flavor concentrate deliver this much flavor?
This is "The Chosen One"
Over the years I have been mixing I have come to undertsand that there isn't a percentage rule as such when it comes to DIY eLiquid creation.
After seeing a peer release a "1 percenter" recipe recently I was inspired to try my luck at one my self.
I began with the thought of trying to chase a basic Strawberries and cream and as usual got side tracked as a picture went past my eyes of a toffee dipped strawberry lol. So I "extra" challenged myself to bring that into this recipe as well.
This is how the micro evolution of how "The Chosen One" was created.
There is only one strawberry I know of that will work at this low %.
Flavorah Alpine Strawberry - IMO a maximum point is 0.2% and after a couple of days you get a nice wild strawberry flavor but past that point of 0.2% I get green dirt, but it works here well.
That Toffee is more like a toffee you would experience on a toffee apple. (no apple notes though).
Vape Train Hard Crack Toffee - is excellent in giving that glossy toffee mouthfeel & sweetness but it's temperamental and IMO only works this low for this application and does well.
The combination of Flavorah Sweet Coconut and Flavorah Sweet Cream not only helps this profile with a lovely creaminess but also helps with the body and textual mouthfeel of this overall vape. This is not coconut heavy at all rather it contrasts the texture of the strawberry and helps the creaminess here very well.
You could add sweetener if you like but I enjoy the sweet authenticity of the strawberry in this and don't want to risk muting out the cream.
A lovely efficient recipe, so simple yet so complex in flavor at only just a total of 1% of flavoring.
Steep time 3 days (ok off the shake)
Tested on a Wotofo Recurve RDA 0.2ohm Alien Single SST coil at 60w
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

This started out as a basic strawberry vanilla mix to see if I could meet a friends expectations...then I realized, you're never going to meet anyone's expectations so....why not just give them a good recipe and some crazy eyes?
I leave out the sweetner - only added for those who want a commercial feel
Cap Sweet Strawberry and the FLV Alpine Strawberry play nice together in this mix. While many have moved on from FW Yellow Cake, it's my go to for a sweet, sticky cake base and with the addition of INW Yes, We Cheesecake, I get the body I'm looking for in the mix.
VT Vanilla Buttercream Frosting adds a finishing creamy note that compliments the INW Cheesecake. It COULD be used at a higher percentage to taste however I prefer this flavor under 2% in a mix like this.
This is taking my Bourberry Jam Recipe and adding 3 ingredients to make a delicious Pound Cake with a touch of icing.
Give this about 5 days for the fruits and creams to all come together, and have a delicious, dark berry jammy cake. This was tested on a Hadeon @.18 ohms 50 watts, and I have been vaping this on my topside with a recurve single coil @.25 ohms 50 watts.
