My name is Sam and I’m a HUGE fan of this forum and the potential it enables for DIY e-juice. I myself like a huge variety of flavours, from sweet, desserts, custards, bakeries and exotic RY4 blends (my current favourite RY4 blend being Hazlenut & Chocolate RY4), to the juicy and fruity fresh flavours we all know and love. I also have a soft spot for candies though I struggle to use both Candies and the Cream/Custard/Bakeries as ADV’s for whatever reason, I enjoy them but cant have them all day every day. For this reason a huge part of my focus for my own DIY work is cold, juicy, fruit and ice combinations. I’m still pretty noob to DIY so I thought a thread would be both a good way for me to learn others thoughts on these types of flavours and a place for all of us who enjoy them to discuss and innovate new flavours, as well as dialing in already popular variants of these flavours. I have a group of acquaintances who buy juice from me to fund my DIY lately but what I can offer them is limited until I learn more, so I mostly stick to respected clones and the likes until I have the ability to create my own that are up to standard. I’ve made quite a few of my own that I am happy with but still want to improve before I’d offer them to others. Also want to note I exclusively use WS-23 for my Ice but would potentially add some Menthol to some mixes as well.
Flavours I’m currently working on that fall into the Fruit Ice categories:
- Mango & Strawberry Ice (nearly what I’d expect from commercial)
- Grape Ice (getting there)
- Dragon Berry Ice (getting there)
- Orange Ice (complete flop so far)
- Lemonade Ice (probably with Berry notes but we’ll see how it handles with the Ice)
- Watermelon Ice (need to get the right WM flavours to make)
- A cocktail line, Mojitos and the likes.
Also want to look at things like Passionfruit and Cranberry but am looking to create well known flavours first as there is a lot more to compare them to. Also thinking that maybe the best approach to go on the Orange Ice may be with a Lemonade, I recently tried it with a Mad Fruit expecting better results like a Fantasi Orange but it didn’t turn out anything like. Also currently vaping Blackcurrant Ice developed by a friend of mine that develops flavours for a commercial line so I get help from him but have no idea what’s in his Blackcurrant Ice, just that I cant get enough of it lol. Anyway I look forward to seeing what discussion and recipes will come out of this thread, together we can create more!
Will update with my recipes so far when I get a chance!
Mango & Strawberry Ice for Nic Salts:
- Cap Sweet Mango 20%
- TPA Strawberry Ripe 8%
- Cap Super Sweet 0.5%
- WS-23 0.5%
The Cap Sweet Mango in addition to the TPA Strawberry Ripe makes for a very ripe Mango taste with some juiciness from the Strawberry, but not much Strawberry taste itself. Potentially changing the numbers of the Strawberry or adding multiple Strawberries will change this. Will be trying this out with some Peach both with and without Strawberry, I have INW Peach and FA White Peach but am inexperienced with both flavours. I think it will help both round out the Mango and plump up the Strawberry a bit. Have also considered a touch of Dragonfruit to help blend the flavours and a touch of Cactus to make it juicier if desired.
Grape Burzt for Nic Salts:
- FW Grape Soda 12% (go lower for Sub-Ohm)
- INW Grape 6%
- WS-23 0.5%
I really enjoy a good Grape vape which is actually quite hard to get on the money. I think I need to get some more flavours like Blackcurrant or something to help round out the Grape flavours without overpowering it, without the WS-23 it was a very Grapey experience but still felt incomplete. The WS-23 cooling sensation is obviously nice as it makes you forget about the nuances of perfecting a flavour profile, but I still feel like the Grape can be improved even more to so the WS-23 is complementing it rather than getting it across the line.
Most of my flavours at this stage are adapted from other recipes found online at one stage or another. If you are the original creator and want credit just comment or message me, I’m not so good at keeping track of what comes from.where unless it turns out amazing.
