This was made for a DIY Down under face group mixers challenge in which pear needed to be the main ingredient. if you are interested in joining the monthly challenges you can find the DIY down under group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/diydownunder/
Top note: I wanted the pear to stand out in this mix not the cream so pear candy will boost the FA pear nicely. and also add some sweetness to the mix
mid note: Hangsen ice cream has an almost caramel buttery note @ 1.5-2%. which is what I wanted to add to support the golden syrup and buttery note The FA custard combined with the ice cream and sweet coconut create a lighter cream base that I was after ..( the coconut is not necessary but it adds a bit of sweetness and fluffiness ) NOTE: can sub out regular FA custard but will give you a bit a citrus note which actually works to bring the the pear forward.
base : The shortbread and cookie create the buttery crust for the mix and add the base notes. The fig and golden syrup contrasts the brightness of the pear and create a fig glaze that coats the pear.
A dry, heavily aromatic sandalwood tobacco with grapefruit and vanilla accents. It's sharp, distinct, and fairly well balanced for dealing with an aggressive and distinct sandalwood. This works okay subohm but that sandalwood can be a whole lot to deal with. I prefer it mixed 50/50 in a MTL tank, preferably with a heavy dose of nicotine salts. It helps me from strangling people while I try to find my inner peace. This settles down a bit on a 2 week steep and is probably essential for a subohm type of application, but honestly I've done this after 3 days in a MTL tank without any real ill effect.
This recipe ties together a lot of preoccupations for me.
It was originally conceived as a way to use FLV Wood Spice. It's a really accurate take on sandalwood, but a bit outside of the normal spectrum of flavors in vaping. Trying to figure out a way to use it, I ended up staring at aromatherapy pairings. Turns out lt's used with citrus a lot, including grapefruit.
FLV Pink Guava is another obsession of mine. It's a bit unhealthy. It has some sweeter, fruitier body but the top notes taste a whole lot like Cascade hops with a distinct kind of grapefruit thing going on. And vanilla, why not? I like vanilla with grapefruit and it actually works really well against woody flavors. I was struggling with other vanillas, Vanillin was too bland, and most of the other vanillas bring a lot of cream baggage. But then Flavorah dropped their vanillas. FLV Vanilla Bean is like a darker version of vanillin. Still dry, but darker and more robust than straight vanillin.
I basically had an aromatherapy pairing going on. But it didn't vape all that well. It needed some more dry body. So... why not use tobacco as a base? FLV Cured had some light sandalwood notes going already but was a pretty strait-laced not particularly aromatic tobacco. It was also an opportunity to make an aromatic tobacco that wasn't a big damp mess.
Shoutout to mixers club and cokecan for suffering through earlier versions of this. The input I got was invaluable. I kept on tweaking. The original percentages on cured and pink guava were a bit too delicate and the vanilla wasn't coming through as strong as I had I hoped. Enter FLV Smooth Vanilla. It's a pretty staggering price point, but it's a nice, smooth vanilla with a good body thats also ridiculously concentrated. And I had it. So I threw caution to the wind, added it, and ended up here.
And I picked "The Prayer" for a name because I'm insufferable. This also tastes a lot like incense (in a good way I hope, but the comparison is definitely there.) I've just been praying I could get these flavors to work together.
This one came from me wanting a true tobacco feel with a kick and the Classic cigarette and Wood spice definitely brings this to the table. As it is a different type of aspect of tobacco vape. The Cream and Smooth vanilla gives me the slight creamy notes i wanted in this mix. Red burley was added for texture to the final mixture.
Just a fun recipe using some of flavorah's newly released flavors. I figured I would put some recipes out using some of the lesser talked about new flavors. Smooth vanilla is an extremely strong flavor .20% and there is no denying that its in the recipe. Vanilla bean is a lot lighter of a vanilla than smooth vanilla but when added to sweet cream and cream it makes a smooth vanilla cream
My bourbon barrel:
I used a combination of oak barrel, bourbon, butterscotch, and caramel. Oak barrel is a light flavor but yet a very accurate oak barrel with a little bourbon butterscotch and caramel added and it is transformed into a whiskey soaked bourbon oak barrel. butterscotch and caramel add to the sweet notes in the oak barrel.. I added a touch of sweetness to sweeten the mix up a bit. Feel free to use or not use a sweetener of your choice me I like flavorah sweetness!!!!
Just a good smooth bourbon barrel vanilla cream with subtle butterscotch and caramel back notes and of coarse the bourbon oak barrel!!!$$$ let me know what you think in the review section. This is surprisingly good after a shake but definetly will get better with age. I would say a 5 day steep and it is 100% but definitely good to vape on a shake!!! ENJOY!!!!
