I use the hell out of Flavor West Madagascar Vanilla. It tastes and seems to be a real Vanilla bean extract that’s been so very useful to me all the way into knock your socks off at 16%!
Its a dark mix that might mess with your coils but not very much for me so far. Because it’s a shake and vape flavor in my experience I use it like salt and pepper to jazz up anything I want.
Let me know if I can help as Vanilla in many forms is my main vape theme with 10oz a year going up in vape.
What are you ultimately trying to do? Just have a vanilla extract recipe?
If so this can be very hard. I’ve tried. There has to be something that it sits with…whether it is hidden or prominent. One example is to try 0.25 Cream Fresh FA. I love to call this the clear cream because it doesn’t add much for me at that percent, but allows the vanilla something to sit on top.
But let us know. I am sure we all have a few vanilla recipes sitting in our books.
ive seen the holy vanilla often used at much higher percentages ( 2ish ) than i would ever use MF vanilla ( .5 ish ) in your opinion does the potency of MF make it an equal value , im not trying to disagree with you im asking because i value your opinion , i actually have stayed away from the holy vanilla because the strenth, cost and the fact i would only be ordering that from the compa ny so shipping would come into play making it even a higher price than it is listed ( and the fact i have enough MF vanilla to last a lifetime )
Well I actually haven’t used HV that high…I don’t think. Typically I’ll use it 0.5 - 1.0%. Most often I use MF around 0.5%.
Not counting shipping, the cost for a 2oz bottle of HV is $15, or $0.25/ml
The cost for MF Vanilla is $23 for 15 ml, or $1.53/ml
So using HV at the highest 1.5% and MF at 0.5%, it’s a relative wash in terms of cost. However, if you consistently use MF at a lower% than that then it could be cheaper. But I often use HV at 0.5% so the reality is it’s a bit cheaper.
Bottom line for me is that if I can find flavors to replace ones I love from MF I will. I don’t like how they do business. Some though are irreplaceable.
Yes it does. But as far as I know vanillin and ethyl vanillin both have this creamy mouthfeel, so you probable have to go to Vanilla (Bourbon) TPA because they use vanilla extract on that flavor and from the flavor description looks like it lacks this creamy taste. But I have not ever used that flavor to know for sure. Is there anyone else who have try Vanilla (Bourbon) TPA?
