This was inspired by a Dominican recipe, and it smells terrible in the bottle, but tastes good. It has that marvelous funk that is found in some tropical fruits, but none of the ingredients really stand out. If you don't like the funk, this recipe is not for you. I love that tropical funk and ended up going through my entire 15ml tester in one day. This might be interesting combined with a sweet cream, or condensed milk as is used in the original recipe.
The base of the recipe is the yam, but it is not a dominate flavor.
The top notes are provided by the fruits.
I chose the HS banana because I wanted a green banana to mimic the plantain in the original recipe, rather than a candy banana flavor.
The guava gives a brightness that the recipe needed.
I wanted cinnamon, but wanted to keep it in the background, so I used CAP cinnamon sugar.
Tropical recipes frequently use sugar cane syrup as a sweetener, so I used VT sugar cane to add additional sweetness.
Here is the original recipe:
I have experimented with this at different wattage, and it seems best around 20 watts in a MTL device, much to my surprise.
Sweet black tea and coconut cream
While not the most ambitious profile to go tackle, this was one of my first public recipes posted and pulled from ATF. I felt the need to go back to it just to see how I would approach it now and I have to say with the help of newer flavors.
As much as I am not a fan of FLV Sweet Coconut, I do really love FA Coconut and how well they both blend into creams. When I think of recipes with creamy coconut in them I think of Leche de Coco by hashslingingslashur, so I went with them at the same ratio but turned down a bit. Although weak, TFA Sweet Tea is still my favorite for straight up black tea. I have been messing around with this combination with VT Sugar Cane for a few mixes and haven't been disappointed yet. VT Sugar Cane makes it a little darker, sweeter and even a little more earthy. After testing a lot of cream layers I decided to go with CAP NY Cheesecake and FA Bavarian Cream. Working with Folkart and Alfred on multiple recipes, there is no denying those fuckers are straight up, unapologetically crema bavarese crazy, and for good reason. I used NY Cheesecake to fill out some of the missing texture and weigh it down a little more, but I didn't expect it to add as much to the coconut layer like it does. I wish I had more to say about why that flavor works in here but somehow it does.
.25% CAP SS if needed... probably needed.
