You can't hurt yourselv with either of them.
All of FA's e-cig line are diacetyl/similar free...but not all of their Kitchen Magic line is. Again, go to the Flavourart site to gather data, and then check it against what the vendors are selling (because many vendors sell from both FA lines).
Some report that FA's Custard has a touch of lemon; others don't taste it (we've never tried that one). It's got great reviews and is free from the bad boys.
Other than TFA and FA, we've found no other vendors that are willing to back up their claims with proof of their claims. There are few that will "tell us" which flavors do/do not have them (and even at what percentages). But if you learn how to recognize the diacetyl/similar flavors (by mixing them with actual whipped cream and taste-testing them - see Flavorists Corner at TFA), you'll quickly become a skeptic regarding typical "vendor claims". (These flavors are VERY obvious once you know what they taste/smell like).
Other 'non-afflicted' flavors that add creaminess & sweetness (in various ways), that you can use in small percentages:
Marshmallow TFA (FA's Marshmallow is more like a european marshmallow/meringue; it's not gooey sweet/thick like American marshmallows)
Whipped Cream TFA (not FA)
Caramel Flavor TFA (not Caramel Candy or Caramel Original)
Irish Cream (FA)
Vanilla Swirl (TFA) spot-on "dairy queen soft serve"
French Vanilla (TFA) you already know/have
etc.,etc., you get the idea.
You're more than welcome! Happy mixing
Perfect! I'm going for the FA Vienna Cream,.... and the FA Custard,... and yes I now have to get RUM! The wife and I enjoyed a lot of Rum Cream when in Jamaica, got to try and make it, brings back the memories!
Thanks for all the fantastic help!
Oops, we almost forgot this thread - you'll definitely want to check it out! Pure Vapes has 3ml FlavourArt flavorings
Be SURE to check out the great recipes & descriptions by HeadInClouds! We got quite a bit of experience with FA, but nothing like HeadInClouds!
Pertect! Next project, Jamaican Rum Cream, and Rum and Coke. I have a never ending flavor shopping list. This has turned into way more of a hobby/obsession than just about quitting smoking! Starting to get a hang of this forum, went back looking around, and looks like 3-5% FA Jamaican Rum would be a place to start, with the Vienna Cream at 3%?
I'd recommend just trying 2% or less first. It's easy to add more flavoring if you like, but you can use a lot of nic base trying to dilute one mixed too strong. Jamaican Rum at 5% would knock me flat, but then I don't drink plain rum either.

Thanks to all, and have a great day
FYI according to the component lists on the TFA page here, Cheesecake and Marshmallow do have the "custard note(s)", even though their flavor descriptions don't mention them.

If you are looking for a Vanilla Custard, you will not find it with the FA Custard.
