Made for a pod system (the Innokin EQS pod system, to be exact). I wanted something woody and smoky with a heavy-handed pour of vanilla. The Ylang Ylang edges the vanillas in a spicy, floral direction, which meshes well with the Red Oak and sandalwood of Wood Spice. Black Fire adds the char. Vanilla Ruyan, also, helps bring this into the realm of a smoked vanilla essence. Butterscotch is there as deeper note underneath and to bring a level of richness to the table. Even with other devices charged and filled, I keep reaching back for this. It's a welcome change of pace. It's not really like anything else, it just is what it is . . . smoky, woody vanilla
flavor pro challenge - untested recipe - going for what the picture looks like- day 5 pleasant vape a bit dry. if you like dry tobaccos it's for you. but i think i'll add sweet cream or something to it - okay at two weeks it's a decent tobacco but not very woodsy and still a bit dry - think I will change up the recipe some. Okay increased the wood spice and decreased the fresh cream and added milk & honey
Ok guys, you better man the f*ck up before you try this. This is a mans mans man cigar. It embodies what you think of when you think of a man. A cigar that is reminiscent of Wood/Spice, Beer, Coffee, Bourbon, and tobacco (of course). If you don't have any hair on your chest, you better get some so this can knock it off and grow it back thicker. It needs about a week to sit before you try it, so that gives you a week to grow up before you enjoy this.
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.
I wasn’t planning on releasing this recipe, but there’s just something strangely addicting about it, and I just can’t not like it.
This all started with the idea of doing an all INW Strap On. Mostly because Shisha Strawberry is my only Strawberry and Wera Garden Watermelon (btw, it’s Wera Garden Watermelon, not just regular ol’ INW Watermelon!) is the only Watermelon I have.
The trouble came with the Bahraini Apple Gold. It’s a sweet apple flavor, but the sweetness comes from anise. I don’t much care for anise, so I wanted to find a way to tame it a bit. That’s when I figured I’d give FLV Wood Spice a go. It’s a strange combo, but it works really well in my opinion. Once a non INW flavor was introduced, I figured what the hell and added some FA Fuji just to give the Apple a bit more of a tart top note.
A tobacco modeled after a flavored Syrian Cigar I once had.
The spicy edge from Native and Turkish start this off. Turkish to bring in the Eastern influence, Native to darken it up more and lend a more cigarish edge to the mix.
Turkish and Native can both get a bit dark, but also are not super complex on their own which is where Connecticut Shade comes in. It brightens while adding depth with it's naunced notes.
This is a spiced Cigar, and how can you have spiced without spice. I wanted a woodsy tone thus the Wood Spice, Pumpkin Spice is a great blend for a lot of reasons, used here for all those reasons :) FLV Clove, because, well, if you have not you should.
Bourbon, a fine calogne, and an earthy tobacco room note. Just like you walked in to a congressman's office to do some shady shit.
This is an all artificial version of an NET mix I was working on a while back, but it just wasn't coming together. The problem was most likely that I was using RF SC Bourbon, but I eventually just moved on to other things. Got some of these FLV in, and decided to give it another go.
Red Burley and Kentucky Blend make a really nice combo here to create an earthy, smoky tobacco with a bit of ash.
Bourbon and Wood Spice top off that bold Tobacco with a bit of manliness. There's a bit of oak in the bourbon, which plays really well with the Wood Spice, which tastes the way I wish I smelled. The actual bourbon part is quite nice as well. I'm not really a bourbon drinker, but if I were, I'd want it to taste like this. It's a fancy bourbon. It's got body, and it's thick. It's more than just a bourbon flavor, it beefs everything up and makes it all feel full in the mouth.
Heat is here to give it a little punch. It's not real noticeable, but you'll be able to tell it's there. It's not quite enough to turn the bourbon in to Hot Damn, but it's enough to feel.
I recommend making 10% dilutions of Heat and Wood Spice since they are pretty strong. A drop too much in a 30 ml could turn this in to hot cologne. Stay safe out there.
I liked this quite a bit fresh, and it just gets better as it ages. Wood Spice is a bit strong at first, but it calms down after a couple days.
