Hi all. I am new to vaping and I have made some good recipes so far. I have also made so horrible ones that have a real perfume taste and smell to them. I was wondering if anyone can help me with this issue. Thanks.
You could try letting them breath for a few hours or even over night. Shake the bottle and then leave them uncapped.
Depernds on the recipe… Usually perfumeyness goes away as it ages… Some recipes needs to age for a month or two!
We’re the flavors you used alcohol or oil based? If so you can let them sit for a day or so with the bottle open. That will give the alcohol a chance to evaporate out. If the flavor was oil based, I have no clue how to fix that.
OR what daath said. I would take his advice over mine.
You shouldn’t vape it.
I am using Capella and tfa concentrates, I’m not sure if they are oil or alcohol based
I know you shouldn’t vape oil based anything, but I’ve seen a couple of the new folks that do. Usually associated with Loraan flavors.
Also keep what Josephine said in mind, if it’s oil based you shouldn’t vape it at all.
Capella and TFA should be fine. The only thing else I can recommend ( keep in mind that I am FAR from being experienced at this). Is to follow daath’s advice and just let them steep for a while.
They’re PG based, most of em.
I thought they were pg or vg based concentrates. Thanks everyone for your help. I suppose being patient will probably help me in the long run. Thanks again.
I don’t know if it is right or wrong but I always stir my mixes for 2 hours on the mag-mixer and then let them rest in the beaker, covered with a paper towel for 10 hours before bottling them. Sniff testing after the stir and after the rest confirm that any floral or chemical smell is greatly reduced or eliminated completely. I also notice they take less time to steep since I adopted this process.
Maybe I missed this point above, but perfume-ish tastes/smells can be from too high of a mix % as well. As others have stated, letting it breath, and steep can help offset flavors, tone down high mixes, etc.
