This has been my fruit ADV for the better part of the year so I've been refraining from sharing it until it was just right. I've put it through 9-10 iterations and this is where I'm at but this isn't even its final form. Originally, I wanted the profile to be a very sweet-guava laden candy. As a candy, it was delicious but I found that at the percentages required to get there, about 1 in 5 people (myself included) would get a bit of a soapy note, so in an effort to eliminate that it has become a fruity, tropical drink.
CAP Sweet Guava: This is the star of the show, love me or hate me for using such an easy fruit as the main profile, Sweet Guava is sweet, tart, and fairly complex as far as a fruit flavor goes. An interesting fruit that not too many people in the states have even eaten, it keeps me and many others coming back again and again for more.
INW Pineapple: This is hands down the best pineapple in 9/10 scenarios in my opinion. It's very fresh, and ripe tasting but does not border on rotten tasting as many ripe fruit flavorings do. Very authentic and far from a syrup, at 1.5% works very well and accentuates further the sweet/tangy thing that the guava has going on.
TFA Key Lime: A very solid lime flavor, adds a citrus note to really bring the tangyness of this juice to the forefront. Works well here but could be subbed for whatever lime you like. I personally find myself subbing this out occasionally for LA Banana Cream at 3% for a creamier, banana-laden vape (which is delicious). One of my all-time favorite versions of graffiti though, is using FLV Mango here instead of the lime at 2% for a sweeter, in your face, tropical punch.
FA Passion: Adds more depth and texture to the vape. Passion at this percentage doesn't carry much but its texture, if you turn it up to 1% you get a bit of a peach type note in the flavor but I like it where its at. If you take this up to 1.5% you get the candy ish flavor I mentioned in the intro, but the soapiness starts to come through. Try it where its at, play around with the percent if you want to later.
INW Cactus: The juiciness booster that makes authentic fruit flavors just really pop and become addicting in my opinion. If you don't have cactus in your arsenal here, TFA Dragonfruit works well at 1.5% but you really should always have a bottle of cactus on hand.
Mix it up and let me know what you think! This is what I believe to be my best creation in a year and a half of mixing!
Update 4/25/18: Adding 1% of TFA Apricot takes this recipe to a whole new level!
I needed a break from all the dessert/bakery vapes so decided on a berry fruit salad. So after a quite a few versions I came up with this delicious berry vape that really tilts towards the purple side.
The Purple - INW Plum is a new concentrate for me and it is surprisingly great, It seems to get bullied by HS Blueberry so I really had to take down the blueberry. TFA Blackberry is my favourite blackberries and at this %, it adds just a touch of bitterness that works well here.
The Red - Somewhat hidden in the background are the tasty FA Juicy Strawberry & INW Raspberry. They seem to add a bit of brightness to the dark berries and gives it a bit more body with some subtle tasty accents.
INW Pineapple is there just to add brightness and tame some of the bitterness from the Plum & Blackberry.
FLV Milk & Honey is used to give a hint of cream while also sweetening the mix.
Very good off the shake. Give it a mix and I'm sure you'll enjoy!
Recently returned from Jamaica, I can still almost taste the delicious fruits there.
Here, a humble but proud pineapple, full bodied and sexy.
Started a YouTube series on mixing and stuff. Here’s a video explaining this mix more kinda https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ofi3Ck6oc0&t=17s
This is a recipe inspired by Rain posted in the Reddit/DIY_eJuice August 2017 Recipe thread by u/bkenn22 .
It is a french patisserie-inspired imaginary dessert. I’ve been really enjoying FA zeppola lately, and using to make a more doughy biscuit/cake/pastry type base. This is like a doughy frosted pineapple tart, whatever that is, and definitely one of the best recipes I’ve come up with. Originally I wanted a cooked or darkened pineapple profile, and was tempted to start adding in TFA brown sugar or FA caramel to find it, but somehow came out with both hints of fresh and cooked fruit which I liked, so I decided to keep it that way. This recipe came together the quickly and easily, which for me has often been a sign that the recipe will see frequent orbits in my DIY rotation. Unlike many of my mediocre recipes that have many subtle ingredients everything in this recipe (except the meringue) stands strong and confidently, which is probably why it works well and is definitely something I will take with me into future recipes. I'm quite proud of this, hopefully some others can enjoy this mix as much as me.
INW Pineapple / FA Kiwi
Well I can’t say I “selected” these as using these was the brief I set myself. The pair make for a nice juicy pineapple++ layer with lots of punch and some nice accents. I left the percentages at the original 3/3 strengths as this strength is very versatile, and I didn’t want to play with the ratio as this would change the profile too far from the original recipe.
FA Apple Pie / FA Zeppola
This is the pastry component, and is way more interesting than the common biscuit/cookie/graham combinations we've all seen before. It's by no means realistic to any real foods, and I chose these simply because I was looking for new and interesting ways to build this layer. If I had TPA Pie Crust I would have tried it here, but I don't so I didn't. I don't get much apple from FA Apple Pie but I guess the apple accent is in there somewhere, and probably what is giving me an hint of stewed fruit.
FW Whipped Cream / LA Cream Cheese Icing / FA Meringue
This is a fairly lightweight cream layer from FW, and it's probably not the best whipped cream available, but adding LA CCI gives it a much fuller body and a slightly pungent thickness. I love the way CCI smells and I think the aroma accurately represents it's purpose in the recipe. The meringue is there to sweeten the deal and remind you this is a dessert. It still works without the meringue but it definitely helps round this layer out. I wanted the creams to be just enough for a full mouth feel and smooth exhale, but kept it minimal and light as the fruits in this recipe won't stand up to very heavy creams.
