Sticky, fragrant rose flavoured jelly cubes dredged with icing sugar.
Turkish Delight is a classic Middle Eastern sweet and dates back more than 230 years, making it one of the oldest sweet dishes in the world.
They are small, fragrant cubes of jelly, usually flavoured with rosewater, orange flower water or citrus fruits juice and heavily dusted with icing sugar. Some versions include roughy chopped pistachios to add texture and equalise the (sometimes overpowering) sweetness.
FLV Rose Essence is the star of the show here and is a phenomenal rose flavour. Unlike its competitors, this does not overpower everything it comes in contact with. This is a delicate infusion of natural rose frangrances with a delightful realistic & well rounded profile. The expected/inherent floral notes does not interfere and, when used correctly, brings a gentle rose bouquet to the table. It needed a slight boost and sweetness in the form of TPA Rose Candy to create the characteristic (sweet) Turkish Delight.
FLV Marshmallow Vanilla plays a number of rolls here. Firstly, it assist by creating body and given the jelly candy a more manageable texture. It furthermore adds a delicious vanilla note which blends perfectly with the rose. Lastly, it adds the first layer of icing sugar sugar dusting, followed by a generous dusting from OOO Powdered Sugar.
Cap Jelly Candy does here what it is supposed to...it creates a jelly, duh! I pushed it to 3% here as traditional Turkish delight is quite gelatinous.
FA pistachio breaks the menotiny of the Rose by introducing an alluring nuttiness and that familiar pistachio earthiness. DO NOT sub this with TPA Pistachio, you have been warned...
Give this baby 3 to 5 days to mingle.
A classic gin cocktail with a hint of rose & cucumber.

Based on the craft gin craze, I recreated a Rose & Cucumber Tonic using the new FLV Citrus Soda, infused with Rose and Cucumber as the mixer.
This is a homage to Juniper, an outstanding juice by my favourite local juice maker, Benji from Vapour Mountain.

FLV Gin is a masterfully created, authentic dry gin which leaves little guesswork to the vaper as to what they are tasting. The resinous, piney flavour, inherent to the Juniper berry, is wonderfully balanced by citrus peel and a smidgen of spiciness from freshly ground peppercorns. There is a wondrous boozy element to the flavour which rounds the profile off expertly. The 'booziness' is not overwhelming in the least but rather augments the authenticity & overall Gin experience. I see this as the best bits of FA Fin and FM Pure Gin combined to create a well rounded & balanced Gin.
FLV Rose Essence brings a delicate, true rose, sophistication to the mix and softens the gin ever so slightly. This is a very "safe" rose flavour compared to other overpowering versions, and will not kill your mix, if used with care. At 2% it brings a semi-rose tinge without being floral, nor does it hinder the Gin to shine. The TPA Rose Candy assists the FLV Rose Essene to punch through the Gin foundation, which can restrict other flavors to shine. In addition, this adds a splash of sweetness to a relatively dry Gin.
FLV Citrus Soda brings a new level of an authentic lemonade/Sprite type flavor to the market. This is a fresh lemon and lime base with a touch of fizziness to perfectly emulate a Sprite like mixer. This is a more dynamic version of FLV Lemonade as it has more pronounced fresh lemon and lime notes. This acts as the mixer base and assists in "moisturising' the gin.
CAP Cucumber fulfills two roles here: Firstly, it provides some juiciness to mix without detraction. INW Cactus does this slightly better but it imparts an unwelcome flavour in this melange. Secondly, the subtle cucumber flavor adds another flavor dimension/layer which concludes the overall profile with an intriguing little twist. I found 2.5% to be aptly enough but it can be increased to around 4% for a more pronounced cucumber taste.
WS23/Koolada is optional at .50 to provide an icy feel.
Give this one at least 3 days to settle down...
Week 9 - The Year of Mixing Challenge on Flavor-Pro's FB Group.
This is a remixed version of a floral fruity tea I had been making for a friend of mine some years ago, but some of the flavors I had used are no longer in production or I've found better flavors since then. So this new version of this tea utilizes a large amount of flavors at very low amounts each. This recipe isn't going to be for everyone, really it's only for us weirdos who like this type of flavor, like me and Kopel. If you are feeling daring and have all of these flavors give it a mix. If you have no idea if you like floral flavors, this could be a bit much of a recipe to get all the flavors for and not know if you like florals.
You can add a touch of sweetener to this if you want to, I personally don't sweeten it beyond the flavorings that are in there. But if I were going to sweeten it I would go rather low with it so it doesn't turn into candy.
Yes you can shake and vape this, but it will be lacking in notes that take longer to steep. I say give this a minimum of 14 days to steep, 21 will have even more of the tea flavors coming through the fruit and the floral notes continue to calm down until it's steep for a full month.
One of my favorite treats are these little mints i get from a small shop in a local village. A perfect blend of a creamy refreshing mint with a touch of rose. A surprising blend that works pleasantly to refresh your palette.
** This is very nice right after the shake. After a couple of hours you get a lovely refreshing mint on the inhale and a nice cream and rose note on the exhale.
