    Try having some coffee? I’ve heard that recommended. Unfortunately, I drink it all day long, so it doesn’t work for me.

    I dislike pickles. But I like dill pickle flavor potato chips. Can't say why.

    I've got some mint snus so I'll just use that and try vaping again in the morning.

    Tested another of my tester mixes and this one is a surprising success. I modified it a bit from a recipe posted on the DIYORDIE FB page. Since I don't like ice cream vapes, I didn't expect to like this but I do. So does my son. It is 17% flavor, high for me, but it works.

    Raspberry Frozen Yogurt
    Cream Fresh (FA) 1%
    DX Whipped Cream (TPA) 2%
    Greek Yogurt (Flavorah) 2.5%
    Raspberry (Sweet) (TPA) 3%
    Shisha Raspberry (VTA) 2%
    SugarDaddy Sweetener 1%
    Sweet Cream (Flavorah) 1%
    Vanilla Swirl (TPA) 4%
    WS-23 30% 0.5%

    SUBS:
    Raspberry CAP 4.5% for the TFA Raspberry Sweet 3%
    Raspberry(Koncetrat) INW 1% or INW Malina .5% for the VT Shisha 2%
    Super Sweet CAP 1% (.5%) for the SugarDaddy Sweetener

    No specific recipe in mind. My flavor base suggestion stemmed from your prior comment:
    Using a complete flavor base, and changing the overall (total flavoring)dilution, would preserve the concentrate-to-concentrate ratios without having to do the math. Mostly I was just thinking out loud... ;):D
    I never got "mint out of basil either. Basil tastes like basil to me... it is unique. If it has any similarity to any other herb, I would have to agree with PJ, and say anise. Though, it is not so much the taste of anise, as it is slightest hint of aroma. Pairs well with citrus, cucumber, melons, and even gin and/or vodka for the boozy folks. My little neighborhood watering hole does a cucumber basil lime (gin) gimlet that awesome on a hot summer afternoon.:D

    It's interesting to experience the stages of steeping. 4 days after mixing I was just getting the Pine Tree taste of gin. This morning is the 5th day I started to taste a bit of fruit. Now the WS-23 has taken over. Getting the impression of menthol without the taste.I don't mix with menthol much and when I do,I don't want to taste it. I can still taste a bit of pine tree along with the WS-23 ATM

    @FranC, do you think the FA Gin is going to be a fading problem-child?

    Too soon to tell,Joel:) The pine tree aspect has faded some so far but I'm still getting a gin taste.

    Well the taste buds seem to be back on the job this morning.

    As far as the coffee suggestions, I too drink coffee all day at the office. Yesterday was no exception, so I don't suspect that helps me. And I probably don't need an excuse to drink more coffee.

    Thanks for all the suggestions though. But I think the taste buds just needed a break. Should be good to go now.

    This is a strange mix. Or maybe it's me that's strange:) The fruit hasn't made a come-back yet but the gin has. I'm back to the pine tree ATM

    I had FLV Pink Guava in my cart but I've read many reviews that it's a very sweet flavor. Thinking of dumping that and putting the Basil back in my cart. Wishlist I mean.

    Talking plants, purple basil has a lot of anise flavor to it so I bet there is a link to that chemical somewhere in the regular basil flavor profile.
    I don't get any mint from the real plants.

    The VT Vodka has not much taste to me,boozy or otherwise. Since space is at a premium,I'm removing it from my case. Made room for my Wine Champagne:)

    Pineapple basil is delicious but the texture for me is unpleasant. I always had to dry the leaves and crush them. Lovely with a fresh fruit yogurt. Pretty hardy and easy to grow, also a the leaves are variegated and very attractive.

    Ordered a few from BCF this morning and it has already shipped. Love BF service.
