This is linked other places as well, but it’s worth a separate thread:
Heres a nice layout as well:
This is the Flavor Review Wiki. It’s easier to navigate and listed alphabetically and sorted by brand. It’s updated about once a week.
LOL, great minds.
THANK YOU for sharing!!!
this is a very nice flavor review thank you
I came across this Sub-reddit recently. It has some pretty interesting tasting notes that may be useful if you’re looking for info about certain flavors.
Misc tasting notes from reddit, around 50 from various vendors. TPA, Cap, FA, FW and one Inawera.
This is a good example of taste being subjective. I agree with some of his notes and strongly disagree with some too. Unless you mix for other people the only true opinion is your own. It make me realize that I have a lot of flavor tasting to do. I give him props for putting in the work though. Flavor testing is time consuming.
Also, he just used 7% of all of them. Not a very good strategy
Nope. Flat percentage testing is, in a word, unreliable. : (
Good example is FA Mangosteen. At low percentages (.2 to 1%) it’s great. At 7% it would make you puke through your nose!

Notes by returnity on VU
Here’s a (non-inclusive) list I’ve been putting together for a while now:
FW Yellow Cake - May gunk coils but smells/tastes heavenly for cake flavor.
FW Hazelnut - Said to be the creamiest, mildest hazelnut flavor.
TFA Berry Crunch - Berry cereal, light on berry heavy on cereal. Contains a bit of acetyl pyrazine (roasted, bready, nutty)
TFA Cheesecake Graham Crust: Light cream cheese richness with graham flavor and acetyl pyrazine
TFA Graham Cracker Clear - Milder, less spicy Graham Cracker than CAP. Useful for graham flavoring.
TFA Fruit Circles - Lemon-y part of fruit loops, recognizable note in many cereal juices. Chemical/Lemon Pledge if abused.
TFA Sweet Cream/Bavarian Cream - Add dimensions and richness to give depth and definition to a milk note
TFA Brown Sugar - Use sparingly (0.5-1%) where needed.
TFA Acetyl Pyrazine (5%) - Nutty, bready, roasted, popcorn, corn chip flavor molecule. Use sparingly (0.5%-1%) where needed.
FA Cream Fresh - I use this as the main component of my milkiness, as I prefer it over TFA Dairy/Milk.
FA Cookie - I use this to add a very different type of cereal grain flavor than Berry Crunch
FA Meringue - Dead on for that sugary, coated smell you get from a freshly opened bag of Froot Loops.
FA Apple Pie - Bread/pastry flavoring with very mild apple notes.
FA Apple - Better than FA Fuji when you’re aiming for artificial apple flavorings
FA Cinnamon Ceylon - That bakery type of cinnamon flavor you need for cinnamon cereals
FA Honey - Useful diluted to 10% strength in PG at 0.05-0.1% (so 0.5-1% of the 10% dilution)
FA Cocoa - Based on HIC’s reports, I think this is the ticket for chocolate/cocoa, but I haven’t tried it.
Medicine Flower Dark/Milk/White Chocolate - IMO the best choice for chocolate flavorings by far
All of these work very well, but there are other possibilities I haven’t listed or even tried yet as well. Things I wouldn’t recommend at all include One-on-One’s ‘cereal’-type flavors & FW’s ‘cereal’-type flavors (possibly excluding Apple Jax, but I haven’t dared try that one after the other two). I’d love to see what @HeadInClouds could add to my ingredients list, which is one of the reasons I wanted to start this thread here at VU, rather than doing it at reddit (where I spend most of my time modding/posting).
I have all of those save for TPA Fruit Circles!
I’d like thank those on reddit.com/r/DIY_eJuice that put in the work and shared these reviews.
BIG UPS TO YOU ALL!
And just a post to say thanks to the redditors who took the time to write these up. We dont want someone, who’s name i shall not mention, to go batshit again and wish the death of ELR.
EDIT: Yikes, forgot to say thank you to @Pro_Vapes for putting these all on one page, thanks bud!
BTW, Holy Vanilla or Vanilla MF?
I just ordered HV tonight… 4oz. I will soon see.
Fantastic, look forward to hearing your comparison. Since buying MF Vanilla i havent purchased or tried any other.
