Not having tried the original, I can't attest to accuracy in comparison. However, as a standalone mix, it is quite good. After about a 2 week steep you get a smooth, slightly creamy watermelon menthol. Personally, I despise Koolada and menthol, but this is an exception. I made this for a buddy, but set aside a tank for myself. Now I'm hooked. The cooling is quite powerful, but up against the candy watermelon it works. Really surprised the FW Hard Candy didn't dominate the recipe, as it usually does in my experience. I suppose the LA Watermelon/FW Jungle Juice combo is powerful enough to subdue the Hard Candy. This is a knockout mix if you like candy, watermelon, or cooling-styled liquids.
never had the original but mixed this up tonight and gave it a shake and vape its awesome. i did overshoot the cap cool mint on accident from .8 to .13 om a 30 ml but its fine. it is a little perfumey and floral but not as bad as pluto right after opening i bet this would be a good breathe and steep i am considering adding some cream and a bit of cake batter and butter and see if if i can get a milky cream on it
Never tried original. Tried a day after mix, LA gave me a nasty floral taste and I almost threw it out. I gave 10ml each to two friends to try and they loved it. So after 3 weeks I still had almost 10ml left and tried again. Floral is practically gone and tastes awesome. I have problems with a lot of fruit flavors being floral, I have yet to find a strawberry I can vape and I have tried all the typical brands.
