    The time I mixed 14 juices and accidentally used a marker instead of a permanent sharpie.... I did eventually figure them out by taste but it was fairly unpleasant. LOL. I now label in at least 2 places, cover with packing tape, and etc. :)

    I have definitely done that, Anna. How about grabbing a bottle just knowing for certain it's the flavor you want, measuring it and completing the mix to only then realize it was not the right flavoring? First mouthful of "what the heck is that"!

    Purchased a new flavor. Did not test it before mixing. Made a batch using normal ratios for a pronounced flavor. When I took a pull on the vape it tasted like someone had sprayed cologne in my mouth. Afterwords proper testing I found that I only need a a few drops of the flavor. It made a nice back note to a flavor profile, but was not a good primary flavor.

    I didn’t make this one but I did vape it at a vape meet: philly cheese steak. Never ever again. Only thing I’ve ever vapes worse than ry4. (Yes I know some people like ry4. Just goes to show how subjective this stuff can be)

    Dripping straight concentrate is a mistake you (I) won't do again.

    This is one that a lot of people think is an awesome way to try a flavor prior to mixing a batch of something you might not really like. It doesn't work so well. I have never dripped straight concentrate before, but I have been known to put a drop on the tip of my finger and lightly tap my tongue to it to checkout the taste, LOL!

    There are two that got me good with this. The worst one was Bacon, disgusting! Even though I smelled it first and thought it was disgusting, I still attempted a tiny taste to see if it might work in very small amounts with other flavors. NO, NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! I tossed that bottle and never looked back.

    The second one was Jalapeno. When it arrived, I smelled it, yep, Jalapeno smell. I wasn't about to taste it. Since I had quit smoking and my taste buds had come back, I just had a horrible experience going out to eat wings with my family. When you smoke, your taste buds are dulled. My brother-in-law and I always got the most extremely hot wings they had on the menu. To say the least, I was sitting at the table red faced, sweat pouring, gulping everyone's water down with my eyes pouring water until I could get the waitress to bring me some milk and a bowl of ice to stick my tongue in. So no tongue taste of the Jalapeno for me. I mixed some up with a small percentage and put it in a CE4 on an eGo (yeah, it was a long time ago!) I hit it once and I actually didn't taste anything, but on the inhale, the heat reacted in my lungs, I must have coughed for 2 days straight from that one hit.

    I've done this as well. That perfume taste is a fine line that each DIY'er has to draw for themselves according to their individual tastes. I can't stand perfumey, tobacco or floral vapes, personally.

    Instead of tasting straight concentrate a better option is to mix a drop or two in a spoonfull of whipped cream and then give it a taste. The whipped cream will dilute it and simulate the taste of pg/vg vapor.

    Second session of mixing I was working off printed recipes, unfortunately I did not notice I had dropped the decimals while typing them out.

    Oh, no! That's why I call this thread, DIY Oops, Bloops & Blunders! I'm sure some more of mine will come back to me. I've been mixing since 2010.

    I do remember several attempts to get a good cherry flavor, finally just gave up. It's never going to happen for me! All cherry flavors taste like cherry flavored cough syrup to me.

    Yes, I bet it would be a better way to taste new flavors. However, I know of one person in particular that would give me nothing but smack if I started purchasing whipped cream for the warehouse and as soon as he found out, everybody else would know and would be giving me smack as well! :D

    Knocked a nearly full 30ml bottle of menthol over. My sinuses cut loose.
