    I got the INW DNB out of curiosity. Adds a smoky taste to tobaccos,don't know about the ashtray. Had to try it though. I have one mix with it that I'm steeping.

    I could see where either would be desired by a smoker or recently former smoker but they're the last things I want.
    Ashtray mouth is what keeps me from lighting up a pipe full of the 4lbs of pipe tobacco I have.

    Honeydew is pretty sweet across the brands, just like the actual fruit.

    I'm a happy camper this morning. Tried my fa pom tester and it's still tart. Not quite sure if it's AS tart as it was fresh so I've put it back to steep. Plus the pink guava is very good and has gained a touch more tartness. Putting that away for more steep also.

    There aren't many fruits that I care to vape solo. Actually there aren't any,anymore. However,I'm going to vape the little bit of Guava I tanked. Tasty stuff.

    I get straight up grapefruit from FLV Pink Guava and don't care for the tartness myself.

    Since you like tart so much you may really like INW Pink Panther. That stuff is very strong and very tart, no matter how much sweetener I add. It's a red currant flavor with a bit of rhubarb and even less strawberry (there's supposedly strawberry, but I can't get past the tart red currants). I use it but only at around 0.15% otherwise it completely takes over my mix.

    I'm not getting a lot of tartness from the Pink Guava. It's more just not sweet. It had more sweetness when it was fresh to me.

    I don't find the Pink Guava overly tart either but it's a bit too grapefruity for me. I do have a recipe I'm using it in with FW Pink Champagne and I'm liking more and more as the week goes along.

    So I recently realized I have four flavor concentrates that are all prefixed Pink.
    And I wondered.... what would happen if I mixed all of these together???

    Psychedelic Pink
    FW Pink Champagne 4.00%
    FLV Pink Guava 0.25%
    INW Pink Panther 0.15%
    MB Pink Lady 2.75%
    CAP Super Sweet 0.25%
    The result was a light fruity very-perfect-for-summer vape!

    Flavor Notes:

    Flavor West Pink Champagne: a sweet light fruity champagne flavour, very much like its real life counterpart. At 4% it's doing a lot of the heavy lifting in this recipe and that's what I was aiming for. It's such a great flavor to add fruits to I figured it should stand mostly in the forefront of this recipe.

    Flavorah Pink Guava: an odd duck to be sure, for me anyway. Turns out all the scuttlebutt about this flavor is true. It's mostly a grapefruit flavor, not bad but for me not a lot of applications as I mostly live my DIY life mixing creams, custards and other dessert flavors. It's incredibly strong so at 0.25% it's noticeable but not intrusive.

    Inawera Pink Panther: another odd duck kind of flavor for me. I've commented before that this is a flavor that you're either going to love or you're going to hate. Mostly tart red currant with a back note of rhubarb and maybe a touch of strawberry. I like it but it doesn't really pair well with creams/desserts so it's not something that I use often. Like the FLV Pink Guava it's very concentrated and used as a background note so at only 0.15% I still get some red currant but again, it's not intrusive.

    Molinberry Pink Lady: so here is a flavor that is described as "a combination of floral & fruit notes: rose, hibiscus, maracuja and guava". Turns out it pairs very nicely with FLV Pink Guava as it gives more depth to the grapefruitiness of that. Yet, it is slightly sweet and floral without being too floral which I find off-putting. This is a new flavor in my arsenal so I don't have a ton of experience with it yet but this is a great start me thinks.

    Capella Super Sweet: at 0.25% this additive helps to cut the tartness. If you like tart, feel free to omit.

    Age this mix for 24 hours then enjoy.

    YMMV :D

    I'm happy to say I do not find the FLV Cranberry to be vile. More to follow after I vape a bit more..........

    ugh ! I didn't multi quote as I read...a couple of days catching up.


    The coughing/inhaled cinnamon powder has faded from the Horchata.
    I still think the CAP is better tho. Kind of 'deeper"


    Rumchata - is why I bought that rum :)





    ...and now I don't remember what else :(

    Good morning !

    The closest I've come to a real cig taste was with .5% (half a percent in case you missed the decimal point) FA Black Fire added to a traditional cigarette DIY flavor. Black Fire adds the smoke effect that you got with a real cigarette. Balanced correctly it's amazing how close it is.
