Today we bring you an all Flavorah recipe, and when we're talking about Flavorah, how can we not mention their tobaccos? These have short steep times and are very pleasant to vape on from day one.
Alright, here's what we wanted to tackle for this recipe: we wanted to play around with the idea of having a soft and consistent gradient between the different shades of the leaves, starting with caramel darkness transitioning all the way into a bright citric green. Without further ado, let's get to the notes of this complex yet light recipe.
This is a dark tobacco and it has a sort of caramel-like texture, it's an amazing flavor. It sits at the base of our mix and it delivers the darker shades of our gradient.
FLV Oriental Tobacco
This is our yellow shade of tobacco, contributing to a little beat of dryness and mildly ashy, sitting right in the middle of our gradient.
FLV Yakima Hops, FLV Tangerine
The Yakima fit very well into the initial idea, it has that greenness that we wanted while also being a bit citric, pairing really well with the Tangerine which is the top note of the mix. This combo delivers an incredible aroma of bergamot leaves!
The choice of this flavor might be odd when you first see in the recipe but it is primordial and it actually fills in all the missing colors to make our gradient as smooth as we wanted. It has that darker flavor while also contributing with the brighter notes of the mix, it also delightfully sweetens our tobaccos!

We present you with a Kiwi Lemonade with a touch of Cantaloupe. This is the second version and we were very satisfied with the results. A complex vape with unique notes and a combination of textures. Without further ado, here are the notes!
LA Lemonade e VT Sour Lemon
These two make up the lemonade base, LA having a more base note and that lemonade drink texture. VT comes into play on the top note along with the other fruits while enhancing the lemon notes.
Don't be fooled by the percentage used, this is a very strong flavor and it brings the natural notes of a cantaloupe. We really had to tone down the first recipe's percentage because of its strength.
FW Kiwi e FA Kiwi
FA Kiwi was used since we wanted to take this recipe towards a natural fruit mix, it is also a base flavor that contributes to the juiciness of the mix. FW Kiwi comes into play for its acidic top notes.
WF African Horned Cucumber
Last but not least important, this is a very authentic and unique flavor. It brings all types of notes into the recipe such as citric, tropical, sweetness, as well as a creamy yet juicy texture. This is a very complex flavor and it sits really well in the mix giving it a singular taste, enhancing the tropical notes of the Cantaloupe as well as the sour notes of the lemon, also contributing to the natural essence of this recipe. Without this flavor, this wouldn't be as attractive as it is.
Super Sweet is here to help pop all the wonderful notes found in the recipe. If you mix this and like it, please rate and comment on it. Enjoy!
FA Apple Pie, WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough
Thick, fried, and dense dough.
JF Yellow Cake, CAP Vanilla Custard v1
The inside part of the dough, the yellow cake brings the fluffiness into play while the VC v1 contributes with the wetness making it feel creamy inside.
FLV Butterscotch, FW Butterscotch Ripple
This is the filling, we chose both of these butterscotch flavors because they complement each other. FLV on the top not while FW on the base, bringing in that stickiness that we love so much!
CAP Cinnamon Sugar, FW Sweetener
The typical mixture of cinnamon powder and sugar where we roll that fried goodie right after coming out of the oil. FW Sweetener brings that sugary, lingering after taste just like when you bite into a churro or our own Brazilian version of a donut, called "Sonho" which translates to "dream".

I'll start off by explaining the guava paste or guava cheese layer, more commonly known here in Brazil as "goiabada". Ever since I got into DIY, I dreamed of a good guava concentrate! As it is pretty difficult to get flavorings from various brands down here, my first experience with any type of guava was pretty disappointing, I believe everyone can guess the brand which I'm talking about. Then, my second guava type flavor was Sweet Guava from Capella, I'll be honest here and say that this flavoring is far from what a real pink-centered guava tastes like, it is more of a very light watered down guava juice.
Fast forward to early December 2019 when I got Pink Guava in the mail. As soon as took the cap off and took a whiff, I fell in love with it! I had finally gotten that real, ripe guava smell. One of my favorite parts of the guava is the skin, which brings a tartness that balances so well with the sweet, creamy inside of it, and I gotta say, Pink Guava brings all of this to the table, except for the extreme sweetness that is part of that delicious pink, redish center.
Alright, enough with the small talk, let's get down to business!
WF Banana Pureé/TPA Brown Sugar/VT Glazed Strawberries/FLV Pink Guava/CAP Sweet Guava - All these make the Guava Paste layer, each playing its role here to bring the perfect "goiabada". The banana pureé and glazed strawberries bring both the creaminess and the glazed/jammy feeling of the cooked up guava. The brown sugar here is pretty obvious, contributing to the sweetness as well as the "cooked" sugar. And then comes the beauty of the guavas, pink guava is an almost complete guava and sweet guava does a wonderful job completing it with its inherent sweetness and lighter body.
Ok, after I developed the perfect guava paste layer, I needed the Perfect Cheesecake, and that's where the @Developed team came in and solved all my previous cheesecake attempts. It really is the perfect cheesecake flavor and with the guava paste on top if, I finally nailed my favorite dessert in vape form!
I recommend making a one-shot of this guava paste to use it in other recipes that might call for something of the sort. Corn bread is actually really good with it and I'm working on another recipe to balance both flavors appropriately.
If you read this huge text, I appreciate the time. Now, if you just scrolled down and got down here just to see the recipe, mix this up ASAP and make sure to leave a feedback!
My goal was to recreate a banana cookie with hints of honey and cinnamon that I used to eat as a child. I tried this before with no success because the banana layer just wasn't right because of missing flavors. I nailed this profile as soon as I got some more bananas in my stash.
This is good as a SNV but everything goes into place after a week.
VT Biscuit Base/FA Cookie - these two together bring a perfect crunchy buttery cookie
Bananas - At these % this blends into the cookie base perfectly to create a single unit banana cookie
FA Honey - Just enough to give the needed honey
VT Honeycomb - This helps boost the honey and bring some creaminess into the profile
CAP Cinnamon Sugar - This brings a nice cinnamon without overtaking all the other flavors
FA Vanilla Tahity - This was the chosen vanilla for the mix, it fits perfectly into the cookie and cannot be substituted for any other vanillas
CAP Super Sweet - I actually use my own sucralose dilution that is very similar to super sweet in strength but doesn't contain all the other ingredients found in it. As always, add it to your liking but at 0.25 this brings just enough sweetness to the mix
I have been mixing for around 2 yeas and this is my first contribution to ATF, any input from you on here would be very welcome, good or bad!
