Sure, sounds like a delicious food, but damnit we don't have any good bacon flavors in the flavoring market. So in an effort to add a hint of what might taste like bacon to a maple frosted donut, I added FA oak wood and FA Black Fire to add that smokey wood note to it. It works for a hint of bacon, more like donuts deep friend in bacon grease, rather than slices of bacon on it, but that was as close as I could get it. It does need a 2 to 3 week steep. It's not a shake and vape for me.
One of the most simple, surprising and delicious juices going has to be coop34's "Coop's Kiwi Bourbon".
So, applying Coop's awesome Kentucky Bourbon + Toasted Marshmallow + Fruit formula, one of the first fruits I decided to try was FA Forest Fruits, because it's my favorite. It's great right away, but goes through lots of interestingly tasty changes the longer it homogenizes. Plus, it seems to do something a little different with every hit. I loved the results instantly, and vaped it for months, but curiosity got the better of me, so I added one of my favorite enhancers, FA Oba Oba, and it was perfect.
This one's fun! Good off the shake, and full of little surprises as time goes on. Vaping it is interesting, too; sometimes it's pleasantly boozy, sometimes it has a pink bubble gum vibe, and sometimes it's just a nice, soft, round berry taste with a vaguely smoked-vanilla-like exhale (the Oba Oba, I think?)
If you don't have FA Oba Oba, try it without it, and if you like it, add some to your next order to try it with. It's a pretty fun flavor that does some cool things with the right profile, and in this case, it really rounds it out, making the whole thing softer, fuller and more complex.
My attempt at creating one of those recipes that changes it's flavor profile depending on how you vape it. Wattage, airflow, and hardware will dictate the specific nuances of this recipe that will be apparent.
FW BEETLE JUICE / VT FIZZY SHERBET - Holy shit, what a combination. If you want something strange, balanced, and indescribable, this mix of flavors creates something beautiful. The Beetle Juice at 2% is giving just the right amount of "fuck everything, throw all the fruits in the bottle" base. There's enough body for this to work on it's own. Adding Fizzy Sherbet at 3% gives us added candy, added brightness, and the right amount of fizzy suggestion to make something awesome. Removing TPA Dragonfruit helps let these two flavors shine, without muting any of those "tip of the tongue" flavors that you know exist, but can't quite define.
TPA GRAPE JUICE / CAP HIBISCUS - I knew I still wanted that back end exhale of grape candy, and letting these two flavors play together gives us just that. The hibiscus is working nicely to add a blend of red sweetness to the mix overall, while preventing the grape from overpowering that exhale. Here, we get the suggestion of a grape exhale, but the candies from the body and inhale still dance on the tongue, only giving the grape enough spotlight for you to know it's there. TPA Grape Juice is a great flavor, but it's finicky. Be careful, high percentages are great to create a strong grape profile from the jump, but when you go low with it, you can truly force it into the background. 0.75% is perfect in this application, but I'd suggest going to 0.5% or lower if you are playing with some more subtle flavors.
FA OBA OBA - While removing all dragonfruits from the mix, we now allow Oba Oba to truly do it's thing. The citrus notes from this flavor play nicely with the tropical parts of Fizzy Sherbet, while adding some brightness and punch to the Beetle Juice. Also, that suggestion of chewy candy that Oba Oba has really helps prevent this mix from being a beverage, but doesn't stand out enough to TRULY be a chewy candy profile. More ambiguity, more success.
FA LIME TAHITY COLD PRESS / FLV PINK GUAVA - If you haven't tried pushing FA LTCP to higher percentages, please give it a try sometime. You get some nice lime flavor, but it doesn't assault your tastebuds like using a few drops of INW Lime. There is some great suggestions of bitter lime zest, but overall, you're getting a sweet lime candy. Finally, I thought that adding a small amount of FLV Pink Guava would just really awaken this mix, and it does. I've had trouble using this flavor in the past, it tends to just make everything muted and you only get this smack to the face of guava. But here, in low percentages, you know it's there without only tasting it. I've noted it's more potent in the beginning of the experience, but steps down as soon as you get a full inhale. So it's brightening up all those ambiguous fruit notes quite nicely, while also creating a subtle bitterness on the exhale to reset your palate on long sessions with this recipe.
Vaping this mix at lower wattage gives the Beetle Juice a lot more room to shine, where the overall profile feels more like a rainbow sherbet mix, sans the true ice cream mouthfeel. It's fruity and sweet, with just the right amount of brightness. Vaping it higher accentuates the Pink Guava, bringing out more tropical notes from the Fizzy Sherbet and LTCP. When you close off the airflow a bit, you pick up more of the berry nuances, pink guava on the back of the tongue, and grape exhale. Wide open airflow is like a tropical fruit juice with pop rocks hidden in the mix.
I think this was a success. Now, I'm very fucking tired. But here we are. Hopefully, my insanity will bring you some benefit. I hope you enjoy this mix, but if you don't that's cool too. This is Amorphous, an attempt at my more recent "white whale" of creating a strange mix that changes as you vape, and never truly gives up it's identity. For me, it feels like a 90% success. If I go back to this, I will try to add a bit more potency to the flavor, as a whole. But for now, it's quite strong, changes like I want based on vaping specifications, and is one of my favorite mixes of 2019.
A Celebration of INW Milk Choc OG - R.I.P. 2017
Chocolate Layer INW Milk Choc OG and FW Milk choc creates a fairly realistic milk choc base and I have added some vanillin to add a bit more body... and by fairly realistic I mean as close as the concentrates at our disposal and my efforts to create a realistic milk chocolate got me.
INW Milk Choc translates more to a homemade chocolate milk to me than the real thing, but apart from perhaps MF Chocolate, this is a good as it gets. FW Milk choc has a plastic-y quality to to that with quite a tame milk choc flavour, I am using the to bend the INW to a commercial milk choc texture... the result is far from fantastic but yeah what ever... I used vanillin... no idea what brand, so lets pretend it TFA :) and sweetener is kind of a must here.
Candy Shell I am using a combination of FW VBIC, FW Jawbreaker and FA oba oba to achieve this. I wont claim its fantastic but does translate loosely to a candy shell. I have added a drop or two of FA Meringue for good measure. I am not sure if it really made a difference here, but I like the recipe as is and with limited amounts of INW Milk choc left I am not going to start experimenting,
Gummi, gooey goodness
I used a simple combination of fw swedish and fa rose to create the almost non-descript floral jelly candy flavour.
yeah so that is it, I hope this is not too disappointing a recipe - Look its a pleasant profile and a fun vape and anyone who have worked with chocolates know the milk choc territory is pretty much undefeated - hope you enjoy
love the contrast of light during sunset as the last light of day begins to be shrouded by the darkness of night. For me it is the most magical and romantic time of day. I wanted to create a mix that provided a contrast such as this
On the inhale you get the slightly sweet peach nectar and oba oba which is contrasted against the tart grapefruit note of the pink guava on he exhale.
The sparkling wine and blood orange sit in the middle of this mix bridging the peach nectar to the pink guava
The golden syrup create a slightly darker base not in this mix
Th is a pleasant citrus ADV if this is a flavor profile in your wheel house give it a go
I added a touch of super sweet to this mix at 0.30 % to get the bright notes to pop even more
(Edited to fill the meet the parameters of the challenge. Swapped the INW Pineapple for CAP Juicy Orange and bumped the CAP Honeydew a %.)
A Smooth Tropical Melon. CAP Sweet Mango is the main note. CAP Sweet Guava to deepen it a bit and give it some sweetness. CAP Honeydew Melon rounds off the edges of the Mango & Guava while making it slightly juicier. FA Oba Oba makes the melons pop and creates more mouthfeel. CAP Juicy Orange for some juicy tangyness. PUR Super Sweet at 0.50% which could go higher, but I like my coils and works for my palette.
A refreshing and Thick Ripe Mango & Orange Liqui-Fruit style of Fruit juice.
This single concentrate Screams with that Super Delicious Ripe juice that you normally get from a perfectly Ripe Mango. Not only does it smell great, Its a spot on in taste, Thick and sweet -RIPE mango that leaves that delicious Ripe Sweet Mango aftertaste.
INW Shisha Orange - The most vibrant and realistic Fresh Orange FRUIT concentrate in my arsenal!! this adds that in your face orange zest vibe to the mix. but be careful , This orange can leave a bit of funny chemically taste if you use it too high in %, I generally stick to the .5-1.5% range on it.
CAP Juicy Orange - Another great Orange, this one brings in more of that Orange Juice feel instead of a Orange Fruit feel. So I used this to boost that orange from INW without having to increase the INW orange.
FA Blood Orange - Another awesome Orange, add everything else that the other oranges are missing
CAP Sweet Tangerine - Such a nice Natural sweetner, I just love this Spot on Sweet Ripeness thats so reminiscent of a perfectly ripened and Sweet Juicy Tangerine.
This is where Im getting that Sweet Syrupy Citrus vibe from, its not enough to over power the Orange, but the sweetness is definitely more prominent compared to the more Zesty or Tartness that the Orange has.
Oba Oba there to aid on a Fuller Feel, but this also blends the Citrus more into a creamy combo.
WS23 Increase or Decrease to your preference
SS - Add if you want to, I did
Update - Replaced CBE Double mango with FE Mango
