I wanted to come up with a juice for my upcoming holiday to the Caribbean using tropical fruits. I had a base of orange, pineapple and mango to which I added passionfruit to bring some brightness to the party and cactus to get the juices flowing. I added the pink guava as I didn't have a grapefruit and it works really well with giving a bit of tang. The final piece was the FLA sweet coconut which compliments the other flavours and leaves a nice sweetness without being sugary.
I'm delighted with the outcome as a SNV and think I have nailed what us Brits know as Lilt
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!

Simon aka @Woftam helped pop my custard recipe virginity; so this is my first, sort of. In reality, he came up with the whole idea based on what I had available at the time, what I wanted, and it is awesome. He even looked up the graphic! So, technically is not my recipe, so I am not responsible for any more flavor notes other than this: this is a damn good recipe from an expert in his field and I am the lucky one to vape it. It is rich in flavor and doesn't need sweetener imo. But if you do decide to add one, try ethyl maltol at a low percentage to bring out the natural sweetness. Steep 7 to 10 days.
If you don't have a stock pile of DIYFS Holy Vanilla, then use DIYFS Holy Resurrection in the same percentages. Holy Resurrection is much better than the Holy Vanilla V2 and I am very pleased with this version by Joey at DIYFS. It can be found here: https://www.diyflavorshack.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=HOLY%2DRESURRECTION%2DFlavoring%2DDI
The DIYFS Butter Rum is also a fantastic rich flavor, and can be found here:
LA Butter Rum could also be subbed if need be.

Had to take a break from testing/mixing FA Tobaccos . . . so, I made this. A banana/coconut pudding RY4. The bones of this are the beautiful duo of coconuts in hashslingingslashur's Leche de Coco with 2 fantastic bananas (TFA Banana Nut Bread and Solub Arome's Banana Flambe), FA Bavarian Cream, and the underrated JF Cookie v2 making up the pudding. 2 RYs (JF RY4 Double and WF Vanilla Ruyan) along with FLV Smoked Butterscotch making up the RY4. Enjoy!
I recently had a piece of lemon and coconut cream cake and enjoyed it so much that I decided to try and capture the experience in vape form.
Lemon needs to be at the forefront of the profile as it is the dominant flavour, so I used relatively high percentages of FA lemon Sicily and VT sour lemon.
I then added some CAP lemon meringue pie as a bridge to the 'cake' part of the profile, rounding it out with a dash of FW yellow cake, INW yes we cheesecake and some LB vanilla ice cream.
The VIC bridges nicely; it adds vanilla flavour to the cake and sets up the coconut cream together with some WF coconut custard, which leaves FW sweet coconut to add a more authentic coconut flavour - this is the sprinkle of coconut on top of the cake.
I found I had to be sparing with the coconut as it has a strange muting effect on the lemon and can easily overwhelm it if too much is used.
In order for the cream to come through properly, this recipe needs a 7 day steep, but it is actually pretty nice straight away.
In terms of subs, you could swap out the VIC for a cream/cream combo of your choice (may try sweet cream and cream fresh), and you could also swap out the cake for a pastry to turn the cake into a pie.
Please mix, enjoy and let me know what you think!
