A relaxing vanilla tobacco vape with a light butterscotch note and woody bite. Vanilla-forward tobacco.
I've always been a sucker for a good NET and Stixx Mixx makes the best! I use SM Havana Prime here at 5%. TFA Red Oak is added to give it a nice woody kick and a hint of smokiness. FW Butterscotch Natural lends a nice contrast at its' position in the recipe. The butterscotch isn't meant to be in your face in this recipe--it's just there to complement the tobacco.
The vanilla/creamy part of this was formed with LA Cream Cheese Icing(which you can actually drop to 2% if it's too much for your liking), Vanilla Swirl, and a smidgen of CAP Vanilla Custard.
FW Hazelnut of course, provides dairy creaminess and a touch of nuttiness that this recipe needed.
Good as a SNV, but surely begins to pop the longer it will sit.
60/40 ratio recommended
~THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONS ARE NOT OPTIONAL~
·ADD 4 DROPS CAPELLA LIME PER 10ML
·ADD 1 DROP KOOLADA PER 10ML
·ADD 1 DROP CAPELLA SPEARMINT PER 10ML
A cool fresh melon, ripe mango, sweet strawberry & crisp cucumber salad with a spritz of a lime wedge, lightly finished with a fresh leaf of spearmint. Everyone has their idea of what a fruit salad is comprised of. But there are no laws...And anything is possible!
60-65VG is preferred
SNV certified, but really begins to shine after 3 days. FLV flavorings tend to need some steeping.
Any substitutions will not being you to this exact flavor
I suddenly got in the mood for a fruit salad and well....with no fruit in the house I was left to my own devices and concentrates.
The only thing I knew was that I wanted melon, mango and strawberry. I chose SC Strawberry(SC) at 1% and FA Strawberry at 2%. I have always preferred Flavour Arts Strawberry over TFA so this was an easy decision. I used RF Strawberry Super Concentrate to boost FA as it can sometimes not pack enough 'umph'.
The melon part was interesting because I had just received FLV Wild Melon in the mail. Upon opening that concentrate(and the RF Strawberry), I knew I had to make something special with them. I wanted a bit of watermelon as well, as a background note. I have always liked FAs version. Never been a fan of LA Watermelon. It just tastes like rancid lipstick to me.
TFA Philippine Mango seemed like the perfect addition to this mix. I only had a real Philippine mango once in my life(i usually purchase the more citrus-like Puerto Rican variety at the local supermarket). But what I remembered about the Philippine variety was the sweet light and fleshy taste. And that was definitely what I wanted to add to this mix.
I added FA Oba Oba in because I can't stand even the tiniest percentage of INW Cactus. The taste is just....ugh. And I found Oba Oba to brighten, sweeten, and slightly juice up my fruits.
Now. I wanted to add something unique to my recipe. I wanted the taste of spearmint, but not an up front kind of a spearmint. I chose CAPs because it's the most authentic. However, it needed a little kick to be more authentic. This is when I decided to add some Koolada. It was the perfect pairing. After taste testing, I decided something was lacking. And that something was lime. I purposely avoided Cold-Pressed, etc., and settled on Capella Lime because it's much 'softer'.
Cangeriwi is a light refreshing summer mixture of cantaloupe, sweet tangerine, kiwi, Fuji apple, pear & cactus. Enjoy!!
This is a strange mix, but one that is definitely one you'll keep coming back to. The FA Cantaloupe was added as an afterthought to provide a tantalizing contrast against the CAP Tangerine. FA Cantaloupe tastes very authentic to me and in this mix it shows itself on the back of the tongue at the exhale.
TFA Kiwi Double & CAP Sweet Tangerine are a wonderful citrus pair. They are definitely the main players of this mix.
TFA Kiwi Double is also used to complement FA Pear and vice-versa. And speaking of complements, what better addition than FA Fuji Apple to accentuate that pear as well as add slight candy sweetness?
Tie it all together with the juicy wetness INW Cactus provides, and you've got yourself a really good eliquid!
SNV but a simple overnight steep is beneficial.

A really smooth & creamy Rainbow sherbet-type ice cream perfect for the hotter weather. Nicely balanced & not lemon-strong.
I formed my ice cream using LB Vanilla Ice Cream. On its' own it's delicious although a little linear. It's for this reason I boosted the vanilla part with DFS Menage è Trois & TFA French Vanilla Deluxe. These 2 paired in combination with the LB VIC form the perfect creamy smooth texture of vanilla ice cream I wanted to push forward. TFA FVD is NOT the same as their French Vanilla, French Vanilla II, or French Vanilla Creme. It's quite different and I love it so much that I purchase it in 120mls at a time.
Again, I started with LB Rainbow Sherbet as my foundation for this portion of my mix. And again, very delicious but not quite enough 'umph'. This is why I included a touch of FE Lemon & TFA Raspberry Sweet. Only a little lemon was needed to make the note more noticeable. Raspberry was used at a higher % because it's more of a weak flavor and can easily get lost in a recipe. I find that the FE Lemon also provides a boost in order to bring the raspberry out of hiding. LB RS has a nice light tart/sour note as well that pops after a 3 day steep.
I use FA Polar Blast here at a low percentage but if you like your ice cream colder, this can be increased to 0.25-0.5%. Quite honestly, the next time I whip up a batch for my personal use I will raise this percentage to around 0.4%.
I use CAP Super Sweet at a low percentage because frankly, ice cream is sweet. You can increase the percentage to 0.5%, but personally I wouldn't go any higher than that due to the sweetness of the other involved concentrates.
Remember: This is Rainbow Ice Cream, not Rainbow Sherbet so you will have a completely different mouth feel than with sherbet. Mix at 70% VG for ice cream thickness. At least a 3 day steep is recommended. I don't recommend any subs(especially CAP or TFA VBICs). LB ice cream has an authentic flavor with no off notes(pepper or plastic)
"DIYeleos(Pronounced D.I.Yel-ee-ose) Milk":
This is my revision for my "My Milk" recipe. There were quite a few issues I had with that recipe, though others said they really enjoyed it.
Firstly, the inclusion of FW Fruity Flakes really bothered me. Even though it was only at,0.27%(or some ridiculous percentage like that), I didn't want any of that dangerous sugar crap in my recipe no matter how little was present. I don't mind diacetyl...but sugar? No way.
Secondly, there was simply too much lemon in My Milk. Way too much. I mean...a lot. Did I say way too much?
And finally, the correct balance with the custard & brown sugar just wasn't 'there'. Sure, it was palatable. But it wasn't worthy of all the praise(or the 1782 views on ATF) it got, in my opinion.
I've been reviewing the original recipe since its' inception and reformulating on paper over & over & over. Today(05/04/17) I think I finally perfected the flavor. I quickly mixed up a 40ml batch straight away. I'm weird like that. If it doesn't look right, I won't even waste my time or supplies mixing it up. Needless to say, I was very pleased with this revision. Even fresh, this just...rocks. Everything is more balanced than my first recipe. And the lemon doesn't dominate. For those of you who want to enjoy Teleos The Milk without all that sucralose, vendor cockiness, and the SUPER inflated price(even with their new 60ml "bargain" price), I think this mix is for you. This is one of those recipes that you just "know" will get better & better with age. Which is why I am releasing it straight away. My next venture will be to make a close clone of The Crunch, so stay tuned for that one.
The 1st difference you will notice in this new recipe is the inclusion of TFA Berry Crunch(also called Berry Cereal). This is because the more I vaped on the original Teleos eliquid, I found myself tasting this. Its a weaker flavor than FW Fruit Rings, so in order to be tasted, it was necessary for this concentrate to be higher. ANY less, and it becomes invisible in FW Fruit Rings bold flavor.
FW Fruit Rings is a great Pebbles foundation. At 1%, the citrus flavor(as in the real cereal) is present. CAP Lemon Meringue Pie was used at only 0.5% in order to 'soften' the sharp lemon in the FW Fruit Rings, while not completely killing the lemon. It also boosts the milky part of this mix.
First off we have the tried & true FW Hazelnut/FA Meringue milk base. I used more Hazelnut than Meringue in order to bring out a slight malty cereal feel. I purposely avoided Acetyl Pyrazine because this is more of a 'leftover milk' recipe as opposed to a grainy cereal. I wanted more thickness & milkiness, which is why I included TFA Vanilla Swirl at a low 1.5%.
The Real Stars Of The Show:
For the original Teleos The Milk and this new recipe, TFA Brown Sugar and CAP Vanilla Custard v1 are a MUST. Vanilla Custard is prominent, yet balanced. You cannot have Teleos The Milk without custard or brown sugar. That's just a fact. The key is getting the balance right. My original recipe had the custard at 4%. But the way it was balanced(or UNbalanced) made it TOO prominent in my My Milk recipe. In this new version, I use CAP VCv1 at a HIGHER(6%) percentage. And yet, even though it's higher....it doesn't take over. NEWBS: Notice this when formulating a recipe. Depending on the % of the other concentrates, raising a particular concentrate's percentage doesn't necessarily make it taste stronger! It's all about the balance.
If you love Teleos Milk but despise the over-sweet nonsense & its' coil-killing, wick-darkening traits, Erythritol is your savior. I use it here at 1%. But I honestly feel 0.5%-0.75% would be acceptable.
This is just GREAT freshly mixed as I knew it would be, But, as with all milky cereal vapes, 7-14 days steep will benefit it greatly.
70%VG is the way to go for that milky 'feel'.
The 1st layer of this fabulous dessert is the crust. In the edible recipe this is made up of flour, butter and crushed pecan. To accomplish a realistic representation of this, I started with FW Butter Pecan. This is an amazing flavor. And added to INW Biscuit, it forms the perfect crust needed to mimic the dessert.
Our next layer above the crust is a mixture of cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped cream. This layer has a particularly thick mouth feel to it. It's thick. And it's heavy. To accomplish this I chose the obvious LA Cream Cheese Icing along with CAP's Vanilla Whipped Cream. This mixture still needed a boost imho in terms of thickness and sweetness. That's when I added FA Vienna Cream(thick and somewhat buttery). TFA Meringue is used for 2 things-the powdered sugar of this layer and enhances the following layer.
The next layer is just...awesome. Its pistachio pudding and milk. I used TFA Pistachio for its' lovely sweet flavor. To that I added a bit of INW Marzipan & FA Almond. TFA Meringue was added to make the mixture more of a milky pudding-like consistency.
And the last layer is simply....whipped cream. Mmmm. I also wanted to bring out the inherent sweetness of several concentrates so I added a bit of EM, which performed this action perfectly.
Included below is the actual edible recipe. Whip it up. I think you'll really enjoy it!!
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1(8 ounce) package cream cheese(I actually use 12 ounces for a thicker layer)
2/3 powdered sugar
1(16 ounce) container Cool Whip
2 3/4 cups milk
2(8 ounce) packages instant pistachio pudding mix
Preheat oven 375°
Add butter, flour, and nuts to food processor. Pulse until a crumbly dough forms.
Press mixture into 9x13 pan & bake for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool COMPLETELY.
Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1/2 container Cool Whip with electric mixer. Spread over COOLED crust.
Beat milk & pudding mix with electric mixer on low setting. Let stand until set. Carefully spread over cream cheese layer.
Spread the remaining half of Cool Whip over the pudding layer.
If desired, top with additional chopped pecans, pistachios, almonds, or walnuts.
Cover & refrigerate one hour. Cut into squares & serve. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days
I like this as a shake and vape but of course with all the creams, it improves vastly after 3-7 days. My problem is, I just can't WAIT that long!! Really pops at 16+ days! 70% VG is preferred for the thick mouth feel of the creams.
Based on the sexiest Borg in the Delta Quadrant, I introduce a dark and addictive eliquid that brings order to chaos---"The Collective". Part 3 in my Seven Of Nine/Borg Trilogy.
This recipe is an assimilation of really oddball & unique flavors. I mean, who the hell would make a Maryjane-Pistachio Custard? Good fresh out of the gate, but of course it begins to shine after a week or more. Personally, I prefer it fresh(weird, I know!)!
My choice of TFA Mary Jane is obvious, and a mere 2% plays very well with the other ingredients. Any more than 2% and I'm feeling like I'm vaping Scotch Tape® flavored eliquid.
I still felt as though the Mary Jane needed a counter-balance in order to become 'fuller'/more authentic tasting. And TFA RY4 Double performed the task perfectly. This is not an RY4 mix by any means, so I kept the percentage at 2.5%.
Again, another obvious player here is TFA Pistachio. In combination with the RY4 & Mary Jane it brings out an almost "ashy" though nutty flavor. And I just love TFAs version of pistachio above all others.
JF Dulce De Leche & CAP Vanilla Custard v1 obviously provide a nice thick custard base. At 5%, the custard's egginess is restrained somewhat and doesn't "bogart" the entire mix!
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl at 0.5% adds a bit of depth to TFA's Mary Jane. It's a clever magician that can perform a pretty cool disappearing act at wattages around 45-55. Increase wattage to 63 or higher and the cinnamon comes out more, but only as a supporting flavoring.
Armpit steeped for 1 hour for perfection hehe

Based on the sexiest Borg in the Delta Quadrant(except this one is based on Seven Of Nine when she was still under control of The Collective). Part 2 in my Seven Of Nine/Borg Trilogy
Coolness and incredible arrogance are traits of this Borg Drone. For this reason, an assimilation of Polar Blast seemed relevant. FA Polar Blast IMHO, gives a far more realistic 'cooling' effect than the traditional koolada does here. FA Fresh Cream/FA Meringue was resilient and would NOT "adapt to service us". Therefore, injection tubules infused the distinctiveness of FA Vienna Cream/TFA Vanilla Swirl in its' place. Believe it or not, this simple recipe was far more difficult to perfect than any of my previous recipes. But it was definitely worth all my extra work. Fortunately, taste is not irrelevant."
This recipe, after a 5 day steep proves you don't need VBIC, CAP Vanilla Custard or Meringue to make a thick pudding or ice cream! And this one is simple to boot! Enjoy!!

"My Sweet Borg"
Based on the sexiest Borg in the Delta Quadrant-"Seven Of Nine". This is the 1st part of my Seven Of Nine/Borg Trilogy
Feel her pale, milky mounds & sweet vanilla nectar dance over your tongue. She will undoubtedly tease & tantalize you, and most definitely leave you wanting more. Many of us, at one time or another have desired to "make" Seven Of Nine. But up to now, none have mastered her unique perfection. Resistance, in this case, is indeed futile...
I enjoy this after a 2 day steep. But like all fine women... er, ELIQUIDS, "My Sweet Borg" improves with age!
"My Sweet Borg" Notes:
TFA Vanilla Swirl adds that "soft-serve" quality/creaminess I needed in this mix. It is my personal "go to" for all things milk, and was a huge asset in my "My Milk" clone awhile back. It was with that recipe I realized this concentrate's perfect milk base position in a recipe.
CAP Simply Vanilla I feel, is an extremely under-rated flavoring. This was used to boost the vanilla in Vanilla Swirl to a whole new level. And that's its' only purpose in this recipe.
FA Fresh Cream: Holy Mackerel! At 2%, this contributes to that extra thick, milky mouth feel that was missing.
FW Hazelnut: This adds a nice malty back note just to keep things interesting.
NN Erythritol: Originally, I had incorporated CAPs Super Sweet at the same percentage. But man....double-strength sucralose is a major coil-killer(why is life so unfair?). I then remixed this with Nude Nicotine's Erythritol. At the same percentage, I thought it wouldn't have been as sweet & would need to be boosted up in percentage. But as it turns out, this was a fabulous improvement to not ONLY my coils-but also my taste buds. And if you REALLY want to be adventurous, add 0.75% TFA Sweetener in addition to the Erythritol. Very sweet and I actually prefer it with both sweeteners.

Shake & Vape(but really IS juicier the following day)
~A juicy refreshing tangerine/white peach fruit mix that will soon become your new ADV~
I don't usually vape straight fruit mixes. But the formulation of "Utopia" changed all that for me. Its' genesis was quite the happy accident. This recipe was NOT what I originally set out to create. Far from it. My goal was a fresh, juicy apricot liquid. Anyway, after some 10 different variations of apricot 'this' and apricot 'that', I became frustrated and just wanted to relax for awhile and un-think my poor brain, in order for something else to occupy the space in my mind.
I pulled open my Flavour Arts brand drawer and immediately saw FA White Peach and FA Mandarin lying on top of the other neatly organized storage drawer's bottles. THAT was the happy accident. But what followed was purely brilliant and well thought out.
It's highly unusual that my flavor drawer would not be neatly arranged in alphabetical order. I immediately picked up the two bottles and imagined what they would taste like in my mind. I admit, I was intrigued...but not completely convinced in my imagination that those two would be enough to satisfy and leave me wanting more. I don't know about anyone else, but I was in need of a new "All Day Vape".
I leaned back on the floor and imagined the imaginary(lots of imagining here) eliquid to need something to..."juice" it up, sweeten it up, and maybe even "pulp" it up a smidgen. I immediately grabbed the bottle of FA Berryl(Raspberry). That flavor, as I recalled, is certainly juicy, sweet, and "fleshy" like a fresh real fruit. I smirked to myself and thought "Shit. This is gonna be good".
So, ignoring all thoughts of the pressure of the World Cup challenge, I simply sought out to make a nice fruit vape I could just 'chill' to. I figured, "Tomorrow I'll rethink possibilities to enter into the competition".
Long story long(no one can say that was a short story), I mixed it up at the percentages that made sense in my head. And the rest is....Utopia! Enrich your senses with a mouth-watering(created solely by the Berryl) inhale of sweet fresh tangerine, followed by an exhale of juicy white peach. I really believe the FA Berryl (Raspberry) makes Utopia special. It provided nuances that Inawera's Cactus flavoring can only DREAM of! To call this a peach/tangerine mix is blatantly imprecise. As it is so very much more...
Pure deliciousness. Pure mouth-watering fulfillment. Pure...Utopia!
