After I discovered being PG sensitive, I sold all my PG concentrates and bought a small stash of Real Flavors SC to test. Was really excited about both the fact they are PG free and super concentrates, so small amount needed.
As I always do, I first tried mixing a small amount (like 5ml) of single flavors. They say to use 1-2.5%, so for good measure I used 3% with max VG and about 10% of distilled water.
To my great surprise, the flavors are incredibly weak!
I left them to steep for a week to taste again and after that nothing changed. Some are even weaker. I taste mostly VG and very subtle flavor. I feel it’s there, but barely noticeable.
So I started again, now with 5% flavor, again max VG and 10% DW.
Again, very weak flavor!
Tried with different atomizers and, being an MTL vaper, my best setup used to be with 0.75 Ohm Vandy Vape Superfine MTL fused clapton, which provide very nice taste, at low power as needed for MTL.
Now, I came to the conclusion to get some taste from these flavors I should probably go to 10% or even more. Not far as many does with PG flavors, with some exceptions for very strong flavors.
Additionally, I found these flavors to be on the sweet side. Sometimes too sweet.
Some are richer in taste, but most of them are really really weak.
So, now I wonder if I’m doing something wrong or simply why the hype about these flavors I’ve read on many topics in this forum.
Can someone confirm my findings or maybe give some hints on how to better use them?
