Mostly cold on the back of the throat since there's more polar blast than ws23 but I felt it needed a little coldness on the front end as well.
Flv lemonade is the middle ground between smoothie base and pink guava that pulls them together and fills it out. It also lends a touch of inherent sweetness while keeping it light and bright.
Reminds me of Arizona Green Tea.
Basically cold green tea with honey and lemon.
Mostly cold and honey on the inhale with the green tea and lemon coming out over the lingering cold sweetness on the exhale.
Really good off the shake but better after just a few days.
Sweeten to taste. (I didn't find the need to sweeten this at all though)
I bent the original recipe to better fit my palate. I no longer had JF sweet strawberry so I swapped in CAP sweet strawberry instead. Upped the apple, m&h and meringue. I lowered the cactus and added a drop of MTS, which tastes a bit like coconut to me, adding to the depth of flavor and pulling the top notes down just a touch.
Vague fruit flavor reminiscent of White Mystery Airheads. I started with the idea of using FA Cherry in a recipe and simply mixed with FA Pear to lighten the harsh cherry. It already reminded me of the childhood favorite. At this point I just went with it. The apple brings down the tartness. The watermelon really makes it more candylike. The white peach adds an inherent sweetness to the flavor and smooths it into that nondecript fruit vagueness. I used 1% CAP Super Sweet but sweeten to your own tastes.
Simple. Dry, slightly buttery, shortbread cookies with a big fat drop of chewy, tangy and sweet orange marmalade. Just like grandma used to make.
First, I had the blood orange at 2% and it really took everything over. The cookie base by itself was mostly fine, not that you could taste it through the orange! The FA cookie is almost perfect on it's own for this kind of cookie. It really just needed a touch of vanilla and the inw biscuit brings that slight butteriness.
I had some help from Lil Kittybit on the diy_ejuice discord going over this recipe. He suggested dropping the orange to 0.5% since this particular FA flavor is rather potent. He was absolutely right. He also suggested some kind of thickening for the fruit layers. I already had meringue sitting on the sideline as a maybe here. We agreed that it might do the trick to bring down those bright, sharp orange bits just enough to make it jammy.
Right away: There is a sharp, almost floral -taste- that overpowers everything good about it. The cookie is very very dry. The orange sits completely separate from the cookie.
3 days: You can tell that everything is starting to settle but that perfumy-ness is still there. As the flavors mesh together, the mouth feel becomes a bit thicker and the initial OVER tanginess is becoming smoother almost like the jam melting and becoming that candy drop in the oven.
7 days: Most of the harshness is gone in the 10ml test however the larger, 120ml, batch definately needs more time.
14 days: The initial harshness has melted away. There is still a super light dry cookie on the inhale. The only wetness here is definitely coming from the chewy orange jam on the exhale, which no longer has that sharpness to it. Just smooth and sweet.
Update: I gave it more time and it almost seemed to become harsh all over again. I added a tiny bit of CAP Super Sweet (sucralose) and a drop or 2 of FA MTS Vape Wizard which has smoothed everything out to where it should be.
Update 2: added a tiny bit of wf sc almond cookie and it's perfect now
