This recipe is pretty straight forward when it comes to the grape and bubble gum. I wanted to add green apple for some more depth. The idea came from fruit juice, normally grape juices also contain apple juice to enhance their flavor. I wanted to see if I could apply the same concept with E-liquid and the answer is yes.
Ok, before you flip the fuck out, I’m not that guy who uses 10%+ of any flavoring. The new flavors from nicotine river are kinda fantastic, but you really need to start around 7-8% and work your way up.
The blackberry from NR is really really good, but it needs some definition. It’s all body with very little top note. It’s also not sweet.
A touch of hangsen blueberry, tpa grape juice and inw blackcurrant do the work in filling out the high notes while super sweet serves to brighten the whole mix up. It may look like a lot going on here, but it’s very cohesive and purposeful.
I add some 30% ws-23 from bull city to give it a nice cool exhale, but that’s on you.
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.
Got some Inspiration from Theo's Grapey Vapey and Pippa's Pop my Grape, and made something for MTL
Another purple Grape BubbleGum, But for MTL!
The Purpz: Mainly FE Grape, this has a potent Purple grape flavor that works well in Candies and artificial grape juice. I then used the TFA Grape Juice and Dragon fruit to give a juicy boost to the grape note.
Tested on Berserker 1.5 MTL with a 0.55 Ohm Nano Fused Clapton
American Bubblegum was an easy choice. I kept it low here as I didnt want to deal with weird notes that I get from ALL bubblegum
SS, I'd say yes. But hey, take it out if you dont like the sweet stuff in life.
Hop on the bus with this dead simple banger, well suited to mtl and possibly even pods.
Grape loves citrus, and when it comes to fruity, zesty, and cool its hard to discount CAP lemon lime. Here it provides citric brightness while helping to tame the grape side of things a bit. Just a touch of gr.... I mean lemon Sicily helps emphasize the lemon lime, turning this jam into call and response territory.
Speaking of grape, the dark star here is a double whammy, with tfa grape juice and inw grape rounding out that purple profile perfectly.
Truckin right along the middle, flavor wise, is a ripple of the other one, vanilla swirl. Tying the rest together with rich vanilla sweetness it lends some flair and body.
Me and my uncle both agree that this mix is best with some cooling, so ws23 was happily added, though choose your own path for best results.
Thanks to the lemon Sicily, this is a shake and vape approved recipe, so ain't no time to wait. Thanks for putting up with my lame Grateful Dead references if you've made it this far!
This is a collaborative creation by DEVELOPED: Skiddlz, AlfredPudding, Max Savage, Graham, folkart. This was a recipe request submitted for us to tackle. The result is a bright, juicy, grape juice.

This is a simple one, and thankfully it doesn't need to be any more complicated to get a well rounded, sweet, in-your-face full flavor. All we need to achieve vibrant, purple neon goodness is equal parts of both TPA Grape Juice and TPA Grape Candy. Honestly either of these at 5% is enough to get that very artificial purple candy grape flavor that you may be after, but together their forces combined create an absolute banger.
As far as TPA Grape Juice goes, it is certainly an odd one. It has the most mild alcohol vibe to it, much the same aroma I get from cheap Gin. It also has a distinct smell of purple Laffy Taffy, which adds a filmy, almost creamy aspect to the vape and mouthfeel. The grape here is as artificial as it is pronounced, and that benefits us greatly in this mix.
TPA Grape Candy is also fairly unique. I have heard pixie stick, taffy, and many other sugary purple things sold on grocery store shelves being claimed as the intended flavor of this one, though I'll let you be the judge. To me, at least, Grape Juice tastes more like a Jolly Rancher than anything. In the bottle, the concentrate smells of freshly cut grass and shares the same neon purple top note that Grape Juice supplies, combining beautifully.
Here is the fun part; Alterations to this recipe can (and should) include plugging in Vurve's Best Damn Pink Lemonade base, that being 6% LA Lemonade and 0.75% Lemon Sicily. In the summertime I sometimes like to add 0.5% WS23 to this grape base to get a nice, almost Popsicle tone to the whole mix. Throw in 2% FA Fuji or 1% INW Cactus for a refreshing ass flavor. A little FW Blueberry or TPA Pineapple makes a pretty welcome addition to really amplify the tang of the mix. Really anywhere you think a Grape would be good, give this a shot. Add in Guava, Papaya, maybe even some ice creams to get a grape soft serve type horror.
Sweetener is definitely detrimental to this particular combo. If you get inadequate amounts of sweetness from these two flavors, then try turning them up to 5%-6% before reaching for the super sweet. EM will just do it's regular ole' thing of muting the top notes, which is actually an impressive feat here.
