    Hi every one! I purchased my base of 65pg & 35vg. (I add my nic 12mg- pg base seperate) & the flavor west flavoring from Mt. Baker vapor -- flavors as follows:
    Sweet cream: I use this at 5% in most everything, I adore it. Although it says sweet, to me it's not.. it kind of balances out a mix, smoothes it. And it is creamy.

    Whipped cream: this is another add on for me@ 5%, but this is sweeter. And it's creamy but not as smooth, it has a slight bite.. very good with fruit....

    Bavarian cream: again, a add on.but this is sweeter, and smooth and creamy. I put this in fruits and well a lot of mixes.I go higher with this. 7% -10% and light on the fruit, or peanut butter.... Even the toasted almond.I would add the second flavor to taste.

    Butter cream: this is very strong, and has a tangy bite.... It smells like pure butter.. and yes, tastes like pure butter. To me it ruined my fruit mixes and the vape scented my room that my daughter thought I was making popcorn lol.... I'm trying to find something to use this with...

    Pina colada: awesome! @20% (I like sweet) if I am using the creams I use this at 15%.

    Strawberry: I love this strawberry. It's nit a super s.b. it is almost tarty,, but I really like it. I use it at 15% and add a cream at 5%.

    Grape: amazing!! It is in the middle of a candy and fruit grape... I've been using this alone at 15%.

    Toasted almond: again,, amazing. It tastes like a almond cookie to me. It is perfect at 15-20% depending on my mood.

    Butterscotch tobacco: ok.... I used it at 15% it's very very strong... & This one I still have steeping..... And it's been 3 Months lol. It's very dark, almost sludgy and not for me.

    Bananas gone nuts: yummy! 15% great alone.

    Peanut butter: I haven't tried this yet.. I need another flavor still, to make.... Something lol

    Sugar cookie: I used this at 15%, and while tasty, it didn't taste like a sugar cookie.it was good though.... Like a sweet dessert.

    Oh,I made 15ml bottles...

    There are still some I want to try... Blue berry and others... But I am happy with the flavors. In my opinion they don't seem at all to be watered down.... And I haven't had to over flavor anything (unless I wanted it super sweet) I'm also happy with the price.. shipping is super fast,,,, for me it's a win win lol.
    I'm enjoying this thread, thank you to the op!!
    As I try more I'll add!! Have an amazing day everyone!

    Edit to add: I don't normally steep anything.... I mix and vape. I guess it steeps as I go along lol. But the tobaccos definitely need it and the creams do get creamier over time

    I asked them and they replied "trade secret" so i would not trust that they are the same.

    Ive ordered several flavors from MBV........Loved the premix Cinnamon Roll. So bought a 15ml bottle of Cinnamon Roll.
    made up 3 10ml bottles 50/50.........made at different %'s 10% 15% 20%. Steeped in my Ultra sonic machine.......15x 8minute cycles.
    the one bottle at 20% still taste weak compared to their premix...........any suggestions.???

    wow, really happy for your success! I looked at your percentages, it seems confirm my own experience with the same flavor. I use 50/50 PG/VG mixing at 20% flavor total. At first, it seems the flavor is weak. Now after 1 week of steeping, the flavor is coming out better (except for Cinnamon Roll). By the way, the vapes are very satisfying now if I use Phoenix RBA, somewhat weak if I use Vivi Nova.

    As far as Cinnamon Roll goes, I up it to 25% and letting it steep further.
