After the miserably cold winter we have just had I wanted to make something summery, tropical and fruity. I was aiming to juxtapose the brighter, tarter fruit with the deeper, rich creaminess and I think I achieved that. This mix reminds me a lot of a Solero ice cream.
Coconut Custard - as well as adding some creaminess and coconut it has a distinct pineapple note which works nicely with the other fruits.
Tropical Gummy Candy - is a really nice, if a bit artificial, guava. It also adds a lot of juiciness.
Island Mango - really tasty mango, plus when combined with Tropical Gummy Candy it seems to give the mix a lovely syrupy feel. Kind of like a tropical fruit compote.
Lime - I only added a touch to cut through the rest of the fruits.
Passionfruit - adds a bit of tartness and adds to the tropical vibe.
Tahitian Vanilla Cream - I think it works well as it has a fruity sweetness to it already
Can SNV. I like to vape it before the Passionfruit starts to fade. But it's still tasty after that, just a bit less passionfruit.
Green apple Jolly Rancher.
I tried WF Jolly Green Candy aka WF Green Sweet Candy, which is what it's called on the bottle I have. Or I'm pretty sure it's called Green Candy at Chefs. Anyway, I tried it and thought it was like a better version of CAP Green Apple Hard Candy. To me the apple flavour is better and you don't have to use it at a crazily high %. It does the hard candy texture really well. I've heard the folks on Noted describe some hard candy flavours as 'glossy' and it is definitely that.
I wanted to experiment with the flavour so I thought it made sense to try it in ConcreteRiver's Camp Tigerclaw. I just subbed the CAP Green Apple Hard Candy for WF Whatever It's Called and it turned out pretty great. There is already a fair amount of sucralose in the WF so I reduced the amount of CAP SS used. It's maybe not quite as sweet as Camp Tigerclaw, but it's still pretty sweet for me. I found that the sweetener was dampening the sourness so I tried to balance getting the sweetness without losing too much of the tartness.
A thick, rich coconut custard with a boozy bourbon edge.
I used to hate coconut, but after I started vaping it I've become a bit obsessed! I've made a lot of coconutty recipes and I think has to be one of my favourites. Bourbon and coconut is such a delicious combination. I'd put bourbon and/or coconut in everything if I could!
Custard: with this being an all FLV mix the obvious choice was Vanilla Pudding. Cream adds creaminess and mouthfeel. A little Coconut adds a ton of richness. White Chocolate works really well in this mix. It seems to be acting as a kind of bridge between the coconut and custard. I tried consolidating the number of flavours in the custard layer, but it just wasn't as good.
FLV Bourbon has a nice touch of booziness and darkens the whole mix. It works really nicely with Sweet Coconut.
Best after 14 days.
Tested on Hadaly, 0.6 ohms
Warming apple and cinnamon up front with a creamy rice pudding on the finish. I've been really enjoying vaping this during the miserably cold winter weather.
FLV Apple Filling and PUR Country Apple are a really lovely combo. They taste very autumnal, especially with that lovely cinnamon note Apple Filling has.
I used FE Sweet Rice for the main rice note. VT Rice Base adds a little more dimension as well as helping the Sweet Rice not to fade. I wanted to make the rice pudding layer as simple as possible so I started off with just the FE and VT rice layer and TFA Bavarian Cream. But the little bit of FLV Cream really helped add more creaminess and just overall improved it.
I often don't use sweetener but I found this mix needed some. I thought it wasn't quite sweet enough for the profile. It also subdued the apple slightly to allow the rice pudding to come through more. I don't think you'd necessarily need to use FW. I've used CAP SS in another rice pudding recipe and it worked fine.
Can vape after an overnight steep. But the apple comes through more after 2 days and I found it really improved after 3 days. The apple is more present and its overall better balanced. It also gets creamier, richer and the layers blend together better.
Rich, spiced cream with yam and some bready, bakery from the Pumpkin Bread. A very autumnal recipe. Nice and warming on a cold day.
I originally made this as a possible submission for the #Developed FLV assignment. But I didn't have time to finish it then. I really liked it, it's kind of addicting, so wanted some time to tweak it. It took a few versions to balance the spice notes.
Tested on Citadel RDA, 0.6 ohms, around 35w.
A tobacco recipe with creamy butterscotch custard topped with caramel popcorn and peanuts.
I love FLV tobaccos so, as its an all FLV recipe, I really wanted to do some sort of a tobacco mix. I used Vanilla Pudding as the custard base with a little added creaminess and mouthfeel from the Cream. FLV Butterscotch is one of my favourites, it's such a great butterscotch top note. Popcorn and Beer Nuts is a really nice combo plus the caramel note in Popcorn fills out the Butterscotch. I used a bolder, darker tobacco which adds some more depth and dimension to the mix.
Minimum steep - 7 days. But it takes 10-14 days for the tobacco and popcorn to fully come through.

I’m really, really enjoying vaping this mix. I can’t put it down!
A juicy, refreshing, summery feeling mix.
Juicy, tart apple with pink fruity and floral notes from the MB Pink Lady. VSO Apple is the foundation of the mix. It’s the best apple flavour I’ve tried by miles. I could happily vape it as a SF.
I think those who usually don’t like florals won’t be put off by this mix as they more just accent to the apple. It’s a pretty soft floral note.
Cucumber is mainly adding to the overall fresh feel of the mix.
I let it sit overnight before vaping just because I'm weird and find apples harsh straight off a shake. If you don't have that issue it's good as a SNV.
*I have changed the %s slightly. I tried this recipe on a few different RDAs since i first mixed it and found CAP Cucumber was overly rindy on more airy attys. So I lowered it. I also reduced VSO Apple slightly to balance the mix now there's less cucumber.
Deep, red strawberry blended into a rich, decadent cream.
A strawberry cream, as opposed to strawberries and cream. I thought I’d switch it up a bit!
FW Hazelnut does amazing things to the strawberry. It really ripens and deepens it (there is no actual hazelnut flavour).
It needs 5 days steep minimum. At 4 days or less the hazelnut is still evident.
I’d really appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
Really rich, thick, smooth coconut cream.
I’ve been trying to make a coconut cream on and off for a while, but the results just didn’t match exactly what I had envisioned. This came out exactly how I’d hoped.
The MB Palm Coconut and FLV Sweet Coconut make a lovely combo. I love CC Devon Cream. I’ve found if you want to use it as a main cream note it’s got to be cranked up a bit.
I borrowed a couple of elements I really liked from Leche De Coco by hashslingingslashur. TFA CCGC adds to the richness of the cream and adds to the almost grated texture the Palm Coconut has. The FA Fresh Cream stops it being too dark.
It’s best after 7 days steep for the richness and thickness of the cream to develop and the coconut to really blend in.
Super simple recipe.
If you don't have OSDIY Lucky Shot get it - it's delicious! When I tasted it I immediately thought it was everything WF Butter Pecan Pie was missing. A bakery type crust and some dark gooey-ness. Lucky Shot is basically a one shot and already pretty complex, so I wanted to keep the mix simple. I've been looking to make a bourbon pecan recipe for a while and TFA Kentucky Bourbon fits so well in this mix.
This recipe is easy to alter the percentages and customise to your own tastes.
Give it at least 3 days steep.
If you mix it I hope you enjoy it!
