    I used to buy a juice that was cucumber/ hibiscus with a touch each of honeysuckle and fig. I think the fig rounded it out as a “warm” rich flavor as the others are “cool” flavors

    Think of it like adding a touch of salt to something sweet when you cook... it rounds out the flavors and sort of grounds them, if that makes sense

    I have odd taste buds, so mix a small tester. I steeped it for a week, really nice at two . Took 30 ml on vacation and came home with zero ( I took about a dozen 30ml bottles as we had several vapers in the house). For 30 ml: CB 1.2ml, honeydew .6, peach .3 I think a combo of a light/cool with a deep/warm flavor would work if you don’t like those fruits. It just pairs nicely with honeydew. I mtl at high ohms, low wattage. If you dl, adjust accordingly

    I like plum and raisin in my tobaccos. I haven't tried prune yet but I heard it is very good in them. The fig has me very intrigued. I think it will add a rich mild sweetness that would be perfect in tobacco recipes.

    I tried to find some raisin when I did my last order to try in my tobacco. Didn't find it on ECX, someone mentioned Wizard Labs had it. Unfortunately it might be a bit before I do another order.

    What percentage do you use it at? I was thinking low, just to get that raisiny aroma that shows up in aromatic pipe tobacco.

    I don't have your sweet problem but that tastes like a Dreamcicle.

    I'm not sure if sour cuts sweet. I know sweet makes sour tolerable from when I made sour cherry wine dry. Changing the recipe from dry to extremely sweet made it drinkable. But it was still sour, sweet removed the pucker factor, and it was sweet.

    I would try bitter if you haven't yet. The beer principle is the same as coffee with no sugar vs coffee with a little sugar.

    A dash of salt in my coffee is how I cut down on sugar. If there was an anti-salt that's what FranC needs.

    Here's my Orange Cream recipe. I think this dates back to when I was using eGo-C's, it looks like it's way too strong on orange now.

    Orange Cream (TFA) 4%
    Citrus Mix (FA) 3%
    Orange (FA) 3%

    Now I'd use less Citrus Mix when I want to boost a citrus flavor that's weak. And I use Orange Cream when I want to mellow an orange bite.

    I believe thats the one I linked first. Thanks for clarifying! On the second link, in FastTechs forum, a guy said he adds 2-3 drops into his tank. Though it can be pricey, if it works using a few drops per tank, seems it’d last a while. And if it works getting someone off and keeping them off cigs, I’d say it’s worth every penny!

    I’ve seen raisin, raisin rum and a raisin tobacco here and there but the ones I remember atm are...

    One Stop DIY Shop
    Your One Stop Shop for Flavorings, Best Prices and Best Customer Service

    DIY Vapor Supply
    Raisin (TDA)

    Bull City
    Raisin Rum-FLV

    eJuice(dot)com
    Search Results

    I’ve ordered from and love all of these vendors. This last one is basically Nicotine River. NR offers the exact same raisins. Every time I’ve ordered from eLiquid(dot)com, my packages come from NR. I prefer ordering from eLiquid between my larger orders because I always get free s&h, no matter the dollar amount spent.

    Good to know! I ordered probably more than I needed from ECX because I needed to get up to $60 to get the free shipping.

    Recipe help please. I went low on the jasmine in this first run because it can be really overwhelming. At a week, jasmine stood out. Today marked three weeks, so I filled an empty tank. Dud for what I was going for... it’s a nice fruit vape, but floral is almost gone. It tastes mostly like pear. Yes, I know it’s predominant in the %, but I thought the floral would stay. I made 30 ml with the following ml of flavors:
    Pear 1.0
    Honeysuckle .9
    Honeydew .6
    Jasmine .5

    I use a dash of salt in my fresh ground coffee beans just before brewing, to take the bitter out:)
