Meanwhile in Belgium..
The gouvernment called in a national state of emergency. One day before Trump did in the US. Bars and restaurants are closed for the next three weeks now. Only pharmacies and supermarkets are open during the weekend. No more festivals or markets.
This left me at home thinking about how I could turn Corona into a creative recipe. And this is what my twisted mind came up with:
COconut VIolet and Dragonfruit with a little help op juicy strawberry.
COVID-69 saw the light, hoping to bring people some smooth inhales and tasty exhales. And last but not least a little less mass hysteria (arrows at all the hoarders)
Jobs done 😋💨💨
March 20th: Added 2% Blueberry Jam
Sweet purple mango and rich vanilla ice cream come together to take you to paradise.
Since this recipe was discontinued as a one-shot by Chef's Flavours, I've gotten a couple of requests for the recipe. After being told today that someone spent a bunch of money trying to find the same passion fruit flavor that's in there (as you can see, there isn't one), I thought I'd better release the recipe just in case there was any chance of anything like that happening again. The FLV Mango + FA Violet combination is a pairing I've been enamoured of since Kopel released his recipe, Mango Beauregarde. I used it in this with his permission. The vanilla ice cream base is the same one I used for Longing, but with a lot more TFA VBIC to thicken it up against these thinner, juicer ingredients, like FLV Mango. I'm still in love with this profile, but I've been meaning to improve the recipe for some time now and then release the improved version... just haven't gotten around to it. When I do, it's definitely going to have the TFA VBIC replaced with LB's Ice Cream. It might also have a touch of VT Shisha Mango... and who knows what else. We'll see. In the meantime, hope anyone interested enjoys the original recipe.
Recipe designed based off the description of how skooma is made in the world of Skyrim. According to their wiki, it is a super sweet sugary substance called moon sugar, blended with a "nightshade" of which there is no other description. So taking from that, this flavor is friggin sweet. Moon sugar is supposed to be super sweet, so yes, I used 3% CAP super sweet to stimulate this effect...and yes it's a lot, but it kinda needs it for the fantasy of this recipe.
OOO Powdered sugar gives it a slightly more powdered and little bit waxy nature, which was exactly what I intended it to do.
For the non descriptive nightshade notes, I decided to do something that would resemble belladonna berries, because that seems like the most logical nightshade to include in a narcotic type substance, choosing flv elderflower and boysenberry for berry type notes, the syrupy sweetness of elderflower adding to the boysenberry. Sugar orchid also adds a bit of waxy floral note, and FA violet adds some floral spice notes. The little bit of kick from the VT bitters adds just a touch of bite to the berries cutting through the sweetness and giving balance to the recipe.
Would I suggest mixing this? Well if you like sweet vapes, it will hit the spot. But it is a fantasy flavor not based in reality and may be a bit much for many mixers who have never played with florals. It is weird. And if you're sensitive to sucralose it's really not the recipe for you. You can try to sub the super sweet, but it was the only one that gave the sugar lips effect I was aiming for (yes I tried a few different ones.) If you do mix this, I suggest only mixing a 10ml to start with.
This is darn close to those Choward Violet disc candies. So if this is something you grew up with you may enjoy it
candy stick works well for the chalky candy base.
hibsicus candy adds a slight tart citric floral top note to the candy
Violet is pretty darn close to floral Violet flavor in the candy
Add sweetner of choice

I know, I know... not another floral macaron. I was not sure which profile I would want to use in the end. Needless to say I made several versions of floral macarons thinking that I would settle on just one of them. However, I liked where they were all going, so I have kept working on the other ones as well. It has taken several failed attempts to get the ratios/flavors that I am happy with. I wanted light floral accents, not perfume. This will not be for everyone, but if you are feeling adventurous you should give it a try. You might surprise yourself!
The Violet and the Sugar Orchid accent each other nicely and the Holy Vanilla and FLV-Frosting blended them together seamlessly. Props to @Shyndo and anyone else who had a hand in coming up with the base macaron flavors/percentages.
Personally I liked this without sweetener but if you like sweeter vapes I suggest using Vanilla Sugar Daddy. I think that it would blend seamlessly with these flavors. If you are a serious floral devotee then you might want to raise the percents a tad on the Sugar Orchid and Violet. The image and idea were found on Pinterest.
Sometimes colors tell us something we don't know already. In this recipe I tried to mix up two of my favorite FA purple Flavours: grape concord and violet. FA almond here is used like an additive to calm down the floral violet note and the aggressive grape flavour. Cotton candy and cream is the way to milk and combine all together.
I like this with a 0,5 of sweetener, but this is very subjective.
Good vapes guys!
Violet Hops is a take on floral notes, maybe even a bit herbal.
I got some new flavors in to play and i thought these 3 main notes could play well together.
So here we are, smelling a blend of 3 quite opposite flavor profiles but there is a thing in common in all of them.
It's not a flavor combination that fits something you'll find on the store shelves, but to me it is a very interesting mix.
Maybe you want to give it a try, let me know what you think.
Do not, i repeat, do not vape this right after mixing!
You will smell just cold feet!
But after 3 days the magic happens!
FA Violet - floral, slightly herbal, smells purple
FLV Yakima hops - herbal, beer-ish, green leaf flavor
FA Mangosteen - exotic, in the range of pineapple, smells green&yellow
TPA French Vanilla - the glue between the floral top notes and the soft vanilla/yogurt
WF Frozen Yogurt - the bed, the creamy bed, just a touch of tartness, brings the edge in this mix
I repeat once again, please do wait 3 days at least after mixing, this is not a shake and vape!
As mentioned in a recent episode of Noted.
DIYFS Holy Vanilla and FA Cream Fresh put up a heavy vanilla base that's plenty creamy without coming across as eggy or too much like a custard. This creates a great framework to add florals as you like.
FA Lavender and FA Violet: These two all star florals are present to boost the lavender and violet notes in INW Purple Rain.
INW Purple Rain: Holy shit. This stuff is awesome, even standalone. A bright vanilla, with lavender and violet intertwined perfectly. At 1.5% it's the star of the show, and for good reason.
The goal of this recipe was to mimic Violet Pastille candies, which I think it excels at.
Tasteful blueberry soda mix with a touch of zen.
"ripe wild blueberries
nestled under tall fir trees
sweet tart juice bursts forth"
(by Christi Michaels MoonFlower)
FLV Blueberry for its very aromatic flavor.
RF Blueberries & Cream (SC) for the mellow blueberry touch.
TPA Blueberry Extra, for the extra umph.
FA Lime Tahiti (CP) to lift the mix with a little touch of lime, It's not very sour but just enough.
FA Violet for the flowerish component of this mix.
FA Zen Garden for the mysterious touch.
RF Soda Base (SC) for a fresh sparkling sensation.
CAP SS at taste, i didn't needed it, just sweet enough for my taste :-)
Inhale: aromatic blueberry, cream and violet
Exhale: a complex flavor of blueberries and soda sentation with herbs.
Steep: 3 days is a good start, perfect after 5 days.
