This recipe is inspired from @freshepies (Fresh 03)
His combination of LB Vanilla ice cream with Flv vanilla pudding really does create an excellent "custardish" Base!
Also using Fresh's suggested combination of FW Blueberry, Flv Boysenberry and FA Blackcurrent creates such a delicious berry flavor.
This mix is really good off the shake and just improves quite quickly.
I was hesitant to make this public as it really is entirely inspired by Fresh 03, But I just had to share this ADV with the community.
Smoky tobacco with dark berries.
The original idea was to use ingredients with “black” in the name (hence the name), and to try to boost the dark berry notes in Black for Pipe. I think I succeeded with the latter, but the former didn’t quite work out.
The first problem with the “Black” idea was TFA Blackberry. Too floral. Same problem with INW Blackcurrant. Wasn’t really feeling it with Black Cherry for Pipe or INW Black Jack either. So to get the main idea to work, I had to pretty much scrap the Blacks.
For the tobacco base I ended up going with my Brigade 2506 recipe because that pretty much makes Black for Pipe perfect to me. The berries and Connecticut Shade came together kind of by accident. I asked for some ideas on diy_ejuice and @ID10-T suggested FLV Açaí, and mentioned some cocoa notes. I thought that might be interesting with some FLV Connecticut Shade. I must have read a flavor review for Boysenberry before I went to BCF, because I ended up buying FLV Boysenberry instead of the Açaí. I didn’t realize my mistake until I mixed it up and it tasted pretty good, so I went to thank Dave for the suggestion. Then I saw that he said Açaí. I figured I’d better get that one to see if it’s even better, and it was pretty good too. I knew then that I had to at least try it with both, and by golly it was perfect.
I have been really digging it in a MTL tank. Those berries are up front on the inhale and then the smoky perfection of Black for Pipe comes in on the back end.
Nice sweet jammy raspberry on a warm buttery croissant. Inw Shisha Raspberry is a more candied than Inw Malina Raspberry and paired with the super authentic, almost seedy, flv raspberry makes a nice raspberry jam. the Flv Boysenberry just brings a touch of deepness to the jam. The Wf Croissant, Biscuit and RF strawberry jam with toast gives you that buttery croissant with the strawberry giving the rasp jam a little more dimension.
Sweeten to taste, I can't imagine this needing more than half a percent of any sweetener though.
Juicy Peach and White Peach combine to make an absolutely lovely layered peach. Throat hit will be there for at least 7 days, so keep that in mind when selection your peaches for mixing.
INW Cherries is about as good as it gets for cherry imo. Versatile enough for playing the role of most cherry flavors you can imagine without heading to cough syrup town.
Brown sugar and vanilla bourbon cream give you a light burnt effect to your fruit (Thank you for the lesson CokeCan!) and adds a touch of light creaminess.
FLV Apricot is just lovely, it has apricot with hits of brighter berries and citrus, at .5 we get hits of all of this while pushing our peach and cherry up to the front of the recipe at the same time.
FLV Boysenberry adds some dark berry richness and syrup notes to the vape.
Italian cream is here to add a sour'ish cream cheesey'ness note to contrast the sweetness and add some balance to the recipe.

This is my Boysenberry Parfait, now I know these are usually yogurt, but parfaits are known for using custard as well. I guess I have really been on a custard kick lately, with Mighty Beard being my last recipe release, but I think you all will really enjoy this one!
Fruity Fruit McFruitFace: I actually did try other fruits with this, but I knew they were all fruits that everybody used already and a lot of people have parfait recipes out there. So I figured I wanted to try something a little more original, which is how I arrived at Boysenberry. FLV Boysenberry at 1% is a more tart boysenberry and when combined with PUR Boysenberry preserves, helps create a sweet and jammy boysenberry with just a little bit of tartness.
Dem Creams: CAP Vanilla Custard V1 really helps with a nice dense creaminess that we are going for in a Custard parfait. When paired with FLV Cream, it helps smooth out the eggy notes a little bit and helps support Cap Custard V1 as well.
Dem Grains: I had been trying to figure out a recipe for FLV Granola since u/ConcreteRiver put a review up for it about 6 months ago, and it really works great here. By itself it is a bit dry and bitter, but it has a great granola flavor. Combined with a little bit of TPA Cheesecake Graham Crust it helps create a sweeter granola flavor. This is also why CAP VC v1 is so high, FLV Granola really fights against other creams. I realize that 0.66% is a weird % to use, but at 0.5% you can't taste it at all and at 0.75% it overwhelms the rest of the recipe. It's simply perfect where it's at.
The Holiest of Holys: Holy Vanilla is really just a great addition. It helps sweeten up FLV Granola and helps support the creams as well.
The best part about this recipe? You can easily sub the boysenberries for a lot of other fruits. I would probably avoid strong citrus flavors, but things like strawberry, blueberry, cranberry, and maybe even apple cinnamon would make great replacements.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this! I look forward to your reviews and constructive criticisms.
Don't let the small percentages fool you.. Boysenberry and Fuji Apple are potent enough flavors that they still shine in this recipe. The Bavarian Cream as well as the Marshmallows smooth out the vape where the Oba Oba gives a slight extra Vanilla to the mix.. This is a recipe play off of a recipe I had on ELR that I have tweaked and Played with for a little while.. This vape is in my daily rotation of vapes juices. This recipe has been looked at by a few in the past as it was called ( Cloudy Fruit Juice 1.2% flavor ) but I changed the name when I added to the recipe.
EDIT: I bumped up the FLV Boysenberry to .75% and now it is a very very nice mix also steep for 2 weeks minimum.
