In this mix, the Raspberry is the main note, in which all other profiles work on top of. I utilized FA Raspberry and TFA Raspberry Sweet to produce a vivid raspberry flavor that isn't too natural and "watery". While it's not particularly deep, it's a great base for a popsicle flavor. Next, I layed in the lime, which is the second dominating accent note. VT Persian Lime + MB Green Lime produce a very tart and bright lime flavor that sits right next to the raspberry, rather than on top of it. Lastly, I filled out the finish with FW Blood Orange, and used Menthol to add a light mint note to the mix.
Firstly a little background on the inspiration for creating this recipe. This recipe is based on an Australian favourite confectionery that is simply delicious yet extremely complex to replicate in an eLiquid.
The name of the product called "Resdskins" apparently makes some people in the American culture scream "That is just wrong!".
I won't lie, I don't understand what offense this causes nor have any knowledge of the sensitivities of native America. So as to not cause an unintended offense, I have called this recipe "Red Faces".
I have called it that because maybe I should know more about the subject, but hey I'm never to old to learn right?
In saying that let's get on with the recipe that has been the most challenging yet in my 4 years plus of mixing.
After 15 variations over the last few weeks and many many more over the years this is the nearest to justice I can do for this flavour profile.
The "Allens Redskins" is a legendary confectionery in Australia that is like a raspberry hard chew candy that is sweet, tart and little sour, slightly fruity but uniquely delicious.
I have to hand it to the genius who first created this profile because cracking the code of flavour on this is near impossible.
You have to concentrate REALLY hard because there are artificial fruity back notes like apple and pineapple. The Raspberry is extremely distinctive and that was very difficult to nail down.
Hence I had to create a 321 confectionery Raspberry trilogy to get even close. Accenting that trilogy was a balancing act of attempting to replicate the same flavour and mouthfeel and has an 11/10 difficulty ratio.
The slight creaminess and smoothness is also difficult to pin down.
The lingering of the slightly sour & tart notes you get in the real thing is also amazingly difficult to get right without muting the overall base of flavour.
The flavour saturation of the real thing is insane!
To emulate that level of flavour saturation in a vape eLiquid would mean using at least using 30 plus percent of flavourings, while at the same time it would make it sickly sweet after a few short puffs.
So to make this an enjoyable vape I have taken the middle ground of enjoyable vape Vs over sweetened and exaggerated flavour.
This is the closest I can do to entertain this near impossible flavour.
It's delicious, but it comes with some pre-conditions to experience what I have done here:
It needs to be vaped on a quality RDA with airflow semi restricted at least 75w-90w on a 0.10-0.15 ohm dual coils or similar set up with wattage/resistance allowed for on a single coil RDA.
(You can vape it on another device and Wattage but it won't necessarily be the same - let me know what you tried it on)
You need to vape it through for at least 5-10 puffs to get the lingering notes that deliver all the nuances.
I have set out, as I do with all my recipes to make this an enjoyable vape experience. Converting a real life confectionery into an eLiquid is difficult and this was seriously the most difficult recipe I have created ever!
I could either write a 16 page PDF on flavour notes & on how I came to use all the flavours here the way I did ect., but let's keep this simple & enjoyable.
I think this is a very good rendition of this much sought after recipe profile, but let me know what you think. :)
If this was a commercial or custom recipe I would charge heaps for it!
I fully own this recipe and if I learn that you have used this for commercial use I will hunt you down because I DO NOT give permission for use of this recipe other than for private personal use only.
I strongly urge you all to please advocate so that not just you and me can enjoy a smoke free future but also those who haven't experienced what we have yet!
You aren't going to steal my RED FACES Mr Hunt!
Not on my watch Mr. Hunt!
Australia is currently in a massive battle to save our industry from planned legislation that would effectively make nicotine almost inaccessible.
We only have til January 1, 2021 leaving us only a few months to try and turn this around.
Please stay informed and keep up to date with all the calls to action via the DIY Downunder FB page.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

A gummy mosh pit.. Grape, peach, raspberry, watermelon,and strawberry gummified. This is a different take on the og skull candy which is one of my favorite adv's..The flv peach gummy really compliments flv grape and tfa grape juice. cap strawberry taffy/wf strawberry gummy/ wf sour ball candy/ fw razzleberry create a slightly tart chewy gummy base while tfa raspberry sweet and la watermelon help round it out and add some complexity. I like the original but the redux is easily my favorite of the two. This one could use a 7-8 day steep for everything to show up but it is pretty good off the shake.
This was built for the Developed TFA Challenge. I wanted to create a cooked berry cupcake with a custard icing.
I used the Raspberry, Ripe Strawberry and Blueberry to create a more obscure, cooked berry note - it is richer and evolves in the vape on certain hits you get this bending more strawberry and raspberry. Still playing with this idea. Looking for thoughts on this.
The other part of the recipe - the bakery base. I made solo using Vanilla Custard v2 when I first got it. I have put Vanilla Cupcake and Frosted Donut together before. I threw in a dash of caramel to marry the bakery and fruit with that sugary edge note.
Overall, I am very happy with this, I do wonder if a dash of VBIC or Cheesecake would not cement this all with a little heavier mouth feel. But I wanted to really feature the bakery and not lose it in the cream (fearing it become a berry custard only).
Apples Apples Apples… Everyone loves a good Apple!!
Taking advantage of 3 great Apple flavours, FA Apple Fuji- Cap Double Apple- Flv Apple Cranberry.
All 3 combined give a lovely flaour, with the Apple Cranberry giving it a slight sour note.
To create that nice sherbet flavour I use VT Fizzy Sherbet- Cap Italian Lemon Sicily- Flv Citrus Soda. What a combo!!
Then finally the sweet base note, Super Sweet and Marshmallow.
Yum Yum ;)
Don't forget to review when you try it :)
