My attempt at creating one of those recipes that changes it's flavor profile depending on how you vape it. Wattage, airflow, and hardware will dictate the specific nuances of this recipe that will be apparent.

FW BEETLE JUICE / VT FIZZY SHERBET - Holy shit, what a combination. If you want something strange, balanced, and indescribable, this mix of flavors creates something beautiful. The Beetle Juice at 2% is giving just the right amount of "fuck everything, throw all the fruits in the bottle" base. There's enough body for this to work on it's own. Adding Fizzy Sherbet at 3% gives us added candy, added brightness, and the right amount of fizzy suggestion to make something awesome. Removing TPA Dragonfruit helps let these two flavors shine, without muting any of those "tip of the tongue" flavors that you know exist, but can't quite define.

TPA GRAPE JUICE / CAP HIBISCUS - I knew I still wanted that back end exhale of grape candy, and letting these two flavors play together gives us just that. The hibiscus is working nicely to add a blend of red sweetness to the mix overall, while preventing the grape from overpowering that exhale. Here, we get the suggestion of a grape exhale, but the candies from the body and inhale still dance on the tongue, only giving the grape enough spotlight for you to know it's there. TPA Grape Juice is a great flavor, but it's finicky. Be careful, high percentages are great to create a strong grape profile from the jump, but when you go low with it, you can truly force it into the background. 0.75% is perfect in this application, but I'd suggest going to 0.5% or lower if you are playing with some more subtle flavors.

FA OBA OBA - While removing all dragonfruits from the mix, we now allow Oba Oba to truly do it's thing. The citrus notes from this flavor play nicely with the tropical parts of Fizzy Sherbet, while adding some brightness and punch to the Beetle Juice. Also, that suggestion of chewy candy that Oba Oba has really helps prevent this mix from being a beverage, but doesn't stand out enough to TRULY be a chewy candy profile. More ambiguity, more success.

FA LIME TAHITY COLD PRESS / FLV PINK GUAVA - If you haven't tried pushing FA LTCP to higher percentages, please give it a try sometime. You get some nice lime flavor, but it doesn't assault your tastebuds like using a few drops of INW Lime. There is some great suggestions of bitter lime zest, but overall, you're getting a sweet lime candy. Finally, I thought that adding a small amount of FLV Pink Guava would just really awaken this mix, and it does. I've had trouble using this flavor in the past, it tends to just make everything muted and you only get this smack to the face of guava. But here, in low percentages, you know it's there without only tasting it. I've noted it's more potent in the beginning of the experience, but steps down as soon as you get a full inhale. So it's brightening up all those ambiguous fruit notes quite nicely, while also creating a subtle bitterness on the exhale to reset your palate on long sessions with this recipe.

CONCLUSION

Vaping this mix at lower wattage gives the Beetle Juice a lot more room to shine, where the overall profile feels more like a rainbow sherbet mix, sans the true ice cream mouthfeel. It's fruity and sweet, with just the right amount of brightness. Vaping it higher accentuates the Pink Guava, bringing out more tropical notes from the Fizzy Sherbet and LTCP. When you close off the airflow a bit, you pick up more of the berry nuances, pink guava on the back of the tongue, and grape exhale. Wide open airflow is like a tropical fruit juice with pop rocks hidden in the mix.

I think this was a success. Now, I'm very fucking tired. But here we are. Hopefully, my insanity will bring you some benefit. I hope you enjoy this mix, but if you don't that's cool too. This is Amorphous, an attempt at my more recent "white whale" of creating a strange mix that changes as you vape, and never truly gives up it's identity. For me, it feels like a 90% success. If I go back to this, I will try to add a bit more potency to the flavor, as a whole. But for now, it's quite strong, changes like I want based on vaping specifications, and is one of my favorite mixes of 2019.

Over the last few days, everything I mixed up myself has been trash. Don't know why, but it's just been awful. Then Shin told me about this D Cream idea in Discord and I knew I'd have to give it a go. Mixed it up, and immediately felt better about vaping. This shit is bangin. As a shake and vape, it's a little separated, but still delicious. You get the nice slap in the face from FA Fuji on the inhale, then all the beauty of TPA VBIC comes through on the back end. After a few days, this shit melds together so perfectly, the same way Mustard Milk does. The acidity and fruity tartness of FA Fuji balances with the mouthfeel and thick sweetness of VBIC to create something perfectly balanced, and appropriate for any time of day. Pairs well with coffee because of the creaminess for the morning vapes, but it also kicks you back to reality when you had a few too many at the Friday night fish fry. A fucking banger of a recipe, and currently my go-to ADV. Great mix, give this one a go.

I mixed this one up on a whim for the Mix It Or Fix It segment on the BLND Podcast. Assumed, based on the recipe and the profile, that this would be a solid, but simple fruit vape. How wrong I was about that. This recipe is an absolute banger, with some hidden complexities and an incredible evolution through the steep time. As a shake and vape, the pear is obviously the focus, for that FA/TPA combo creates something very delicious and potent. However, after a few days of steeping, that FLV Cream and TPA Honeysuckle just push this recipe to the next level. The cream blends all the fruits together while adding the perfect amount of thickness and fluff, all while still allowing the pears to take the spotlight. However, that honeysuckle comes in to bring a bit of unique earthiness to the mix, while also giving the dragonfruit some personality. I've yet to keep a bottle around for longer than a week, but I constantly find myself coming back for more. If you're looking for a refreshingly light, yet absolutely delicious fruit ADV, look no further. Great work, as always.

I had talked to Rage about this recipe while it was still being developed. I genuinely disliked it the first few days of vaping it. Got some very unpleasant earthy and soured milk notes from what I can only assume being the CCI, Custard, and Sweet Cream combo. Just a too much, too soon type situation. I stuck with it though, and after about day 5, I started to really enjoy it. After a full week steep, this shit came together into another banger that I now come to expect from Rage. I have a hard time tasting blueberry in any recipe, and this one is no exception for me. What I do get, however, is an absolutely delicious and thick white cake/cream filling base that has the perfect amount of "berry sweetness" throughout. I get notes of blueberry every so often, but it's more of an accent, similar to where the blueberries would seep into the nooks and crannies of the cake. Mix this up and forget about it for a week to get the full experience. If you're looking for a recipe that nails the profile of a cake with a thick cream filling, this is for you. Rage is king when it comes to knowledge of flavours, recipe development, and building profiles from scratch, and I must say, it IS nice to have a recipe that makes use of berries that stray away from the industry standard.

I mixed up this recipe for the Mix It or Fix It segment on the BLND Podcast. Before we get into the actual review (for all you impatient fucks), this IS a "Mix It," 100%. Throughout my journey as a mixer, I've come to accept that my strength and preference comes in the form of fruit recipes. This one stood out to me because of the use of FA Pear, which is easily one of my favourite fruit concentrates. Loco uses it perfectly here, as well as expertly crafting the rest of the recipe around it. The use of CAP Lemon Lime made me hesitate for a moment, given the harshness and somewhat off notes from it, but by masking it's downfalls with TPA Meringue, we get something absolutely delicious to bring some bright citrus sweetness to an otherwise linear profile. One thing I love about FA Pear is the juicy emulsification it brings to other fruits, and by pairing that with INW Cactus, this becomes vape that assaults the tastebuds in the best way possible. A simple to mix, yet delicately complex recipe that is perfect for those hot summer days. My only suggestion would be using something like TPA Pear to bring a little bit more authenticity to the pear notes, for right now, we get more of the Fuji and citrus notes at the forefront, while the pear takes a backseat to those powerhouse concentrates. While that may have been the intent of the mixer, I believe that overhauling those pear notes would push this shit to 11. Great job, Loco, this recipe has been added to the rotation of ADVs.

Reviewed this on the BLND Podcast during the Mix It or Fix It portion of the show. Big ups to CBV for sending me a sampler of this banger of a recipe. First off, let me address the fact that this is by no means an ADV, in my honest opinion (unless you are a tobacco maniac that can handle that all day). However, this is the best tobacco recipe I've tried in my entire time vaping. Smoaked is something special, and if you're looking for a recipe that literally is a reminder of the good old days of smoking cigarettes, look no further. On the first few hits of a freshly saturated wick, there are heavy peanut butter notes that play nicely with the tobaccos to create a fairly sweet, dessert type profile. However, after those initial pulls, we're left with something completely unique and amazing. Literal smoke. This shit hits the throat like a cigarette, and leaves an aftertaste of campfire, oak, and beautiful earthy deliciousness. I have never had a tobacco recipe that left me wanting more after a few minutes, but Smoaked kept enticing me to hit it again. The tobaccos are a perfect blend of sweet nutty notes on the inhale, and ashy, smokey, woodsy flavour on the exhale and aftertaste. This one is an expertly crafted recipe that only improves with steeping. A great mix for someone fresh off the smokes still looking for that burning cigarette note, but also complex enough for the experienced mixer to enjoy while pulling out those subtle nuances. Well done, I'll be getting the concentrates to mix this up for those long nights of bourbon and painting.

I am not a fan of guava, grapefruit, or cream cheese icing, but holy hell, this amalgamation of the three is something special. This recipe takes nearly everything good about vaping and just assaults you with everything. The creaminess and thick mouthfeel from CCI and Vanilla Swirl keeps the harsh brightness of the guava and grapefruit in check. While those same tart notes are allowing the cactus to boost them into that addictive punch of flavour that makes a good recipe great. I have no idea what Yakima Hops tastes like on its own, but from this recipe, I think I am going to have to pick it up. There's a touch of bitterness and dry earthy notes that really just rounds this out into one of the best recipes I've tasted in quite some time. This is one expertly crafted mix, something straight from the gods themselves, if gods existed. Maybe Concrete is a god. At the very least, he is my god now.

What?
User: matthewkocanda Score: 3 Entered: over 2 years ago
I'm going to attempt to leave a review that's not going to trigger ol Conrad here, but I assume just seeing my name will trigger him. Honestly, the idea here makes sense, while I haven't tried the recipe or the real world counterpart, I can assume what it should taste like. The issue here is that there is just far too many muting concentrates for anything to really come through here, save for a whole lot of mouth feel. TPA Orange Cream is gonna need some back up, regardless, to really suggest that orange flavour I'm assuming you are looking for. The use of Sugar Cookie and CCI is a pretty smart move here to suggest that kind of store-bought cake-y pastry experience. However, all of the good is just drowned out by a simple case of over flavouring and over complicating. With CCI and Cream Fresh, you don't even need the Creamy Yogurt or the Sweet Cream. All in all, one of the better attempts I've seen from our boy Conrad, but a little more foresight into how the flavours work together and impact each other would allow for a significantly better recipe. Cheers.

lmao so you basically just ripped Wayne's recipe to make your own? This is why no one takes you seriously.

I haven't mixed up anything from a different mixer in ages, and I really haven't mixed anything other than one of my recipes for the last few weeks. I opened ATF and this recipe came up in the suggested tab. I haven't had a strawberry and cream, or in this case, marshmallow in a really long time, and the percentages didn't immediately scare me off, so I mixed a 30ml of this. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Even though there isn't a whole lot of "complexity" in this recipe, the percentages of the flavors are expertly crafted. On a shake and vape, this recipe was tasty, but it felt like a super sugary custard type recipe at first. After a few days, the marshmallow and meringue came through a lot more to build a fluffy, marshmallow-y profile which, I'm assuming is more what OP was going for. I think there could be more strawberry in here, and I mixed a second bottle that used FA Strawberry at 2.5% in tandem with the TPA Straw Ripe, and I think this added a stronger strawberry note to the recipe. However, just StrawRipe is still tasty, it just becomes more of a marshmallow recipe with hints of strawberry. Either way, this mix is really delicious, and I'll be enjoying it for a while now.

User: matthewkocanda Score: 5 Entered: over 1 year ago
Before I dive into this, I want to say this recipe is a trip down memory lane, and yet, I can't explain what it reminds me of. All I know is that every exhale reminds me of the first few months of vaping. There's something about the profile that gives me so much nostalgia to some of the first e-liquids I bought from vape shops when I first started. So straight away, I genuinely love this recipe. Now, on to a proper review. The use of ingredients here is near perfection. I've used CAP Lemon Lime a whole lot in my career as a mixer, and this might be one of the best uses I've ever experienced. It stays prominent in the mix, but doesn't carry some of the strange off notes that the concentrate sometimes has. I'm assuming that's due to the use of VT Fizzy Sherbet to add brightness and depth to an otherwise linear flavor. FW Grape Soda is a banger on it's own, but can sometimes be used incorrectly. Here, we see that 1% working beautifully in order to add that subtle grape note, without completely overpowering the other nuances of the mix. I absolutely love this recipe, it doesn't feel medicinal (which I feel happens from time to time with anything grape in mixing), it has a perfect blend of tart citrus, dark grape, and sweet candy. Great use of flavors in this one, expert navigation of some easily misused concentrates, and an overall enjoyable vape. This will remain in my rotation.
