A refreshing blend of stunning summer drupes, celebrating the sweet and juicy magnificence of stone fruit.
"A stone fruit, also called a drupe, is a fruit with a large "stone" inside. The stone is sometimes called the seed, but that is a mistake, as the seed is inside the stone. The stones can also be called a pit. Examples of stone fruits are peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, and cherries."
FA Peach white and INW Peach blends perfectly to provide our peach layer. Combined, they provide an authentic, juicy, drip-down-your-chin peach - skin, stone and flesh all in one!
TPA Nectarine is a fabulous, true, nectarine flavor and, if used correctly, translates nectarine in vape form perfectly. Just a touch is necessary to compliment the peach layer = any more and it becomes florally.
INW Smoked plum brings an intriguing sweet and sour element with a touch of smokiness to keep the juice interesting and balanced.
FA Apricot provides the fresh, juicy and ripe apricot flavor with that slight tang to balance the overall sweetness. Be careful with this one as it can overpower a mix in an instant.
FA Cherryl imparts the cherry stone fruit layer and boosts the sweetness of the mix with it's inherent natural sweetness. Again, just a tad is all it takes...
FA Cream provides a bit of mouthfeel to the overall mix and blends all the fruits together wonderfully!
Feel free to add a touch of WS-23, etc if you prefer a chilled version.
This baby needs at least 5 days (7 days better) for the fruits to meld together and smooth the floral edges.
A sultry, dense and creamy custard delicately infused with fresh plums.
INW Smoked plum does a wonderful job in creating a realistic, ripe plum with well balanced sweet and tart notes.
The tartness offsets the sweetness perfectly and is pimped up with just a smidgen of smokiness to take this boring old plum to (to coin a phrase) infinity and beyond!
The beautifully thick, almost viscose, mouthfeel present in the plum lends itself perfectly to a thick custard base.
Warning, do not stray above the 0.5%... This stuff is more potent than Kryptonite and should not be taken lightly... I have taken it to 1.5% as a single flavour but anything over that mutes the delicate plum and turns this stuff putrid.
The INW Sesame adds a little intrigue and is a perfect partner for any stone fruit. Feel free to omit the sesame it if you do not have it - BUT, I highly reccommmend it.
I can write an dissertation on the INW Creme Brulee and Custard combo but I will restrain myself. Is is my go-to combo and it just works beautifully to create a stunning thick and luscious custard base with that delicious Brulee finish...
Give this at least 5 days to come together...
My super villain is evil Jennifer Jarvis for making this week insanely difficult. I think I picked out a bunch of stuff she won't even be able to vape.😂😂😂

Christmas Confections is an attempt at recreating the date and rice crispies cookies that my aunt used to make at Christmas time. I'm not sure if a date concentrate exists, but I would say the flavor is somewhere between a jammy fig and a cooked plum. I used FLV Fig at 0.5% and INW Smoked Plum at 0.2% (a ridiculously low % . . . but that stuff is powerful) to create the gooey resemblance of dates cooked in sugar. I added the WF Molasses to add the deep sweetness that comes with cooked dates. WF Almond Cookie (2%), TFA Rice Crunchies (3%), and TFA Coconut Candy (0.75%) make up the body of the cookie that's mixed in (similar to rice crispy treats) after the sugar and dates have cooked into a syrupy sweet mixture. FA Meringue (1%) and CAP Super Sweet (0.5%) round this out with that heavy coating of powdered sugar that the warm cookies are rolled in before serving.
