Lol. Yes. Flavor base.
So to answer the question in the topic line…the percentage of flavor used is determined by the mixer to give the best overall vape experinace for their end goal.
Their end goal wraps up the phrase everyone hates…taste is subjective. But yes I said it. I have tried a few ADV’s from a few folks (not mentioned) where their recpie was close in concept to mixes I love that I invested in flavorings to only be let down. Did I reach out to them? No, I trust those two people a lot…but their mix didn’t meant my end goal.
The end goal is to mix a shit ton of 15-30ml bottles on a regular basis and enjoy them 4-6 weeks later without ever touching them. That said, although some say flavors “up steep” over time which may be true but flavors fade in time as well. They are also adversely impacted (positive and negative) over the steep time.
So do I care about ultra low or ultra high perecents…no. What I care about is the difference (now we are going orange here) between using 0.15% orange mf and 0.5% or even 0.75% when mixed with an ice cream for example. I care about how that one tang’y note is at the top sits along with an orange base and when you close your eyes can taste a wedge of vanilla icecream.
Sure…I can throw a few flavors together and call it day…and they will be really good. But what I care about is the vape experience at the end of my goals.
What are my goals?
Mix only once every two to three weeks. And if needed, not mix for a month.
Never to get board with my vape drawer (have you seen my pics of my vape drawer…not a high volumn in liquid but today it should be close to 50 different recipies…and almost never need to dump unless it’s a true ‘let’s screw this up on purpose to see what happens). By having this many recpies inhibits development of a final recpie to post. However, it’s always Christmas when I open that drawer for close to three years.
Too have a vape very full on flavor. Some would say vape shop quality…but it’s the easiest statement. But yeah…I don’t want a tastey whispy vape…I want it all over and lingering. This is also why when I post a mix in a thread I say how it can be cut down.
Next up…cream deficient. I can’t taste creams (at least, not very well) and I don’t really perceive them. What the fuck is strawberry’s and cream. I’ve tried milky undertone, fresh cream, Vienna cream, whipped cream fa (this was in my first order back in 2015), cream flv, sweet cream flv, seeet cream do tpa, and a few other in low middle and high percents. Nope…shit ain’t going to happen (no need to send me 20 recpies saying this is great…been working this issue for three years). So the goal is to balance the cream components to the others because I know without it the experience will be just shit. I found that balance because if I focus very fricken hard I can taste it…but it’s no fun to focus that hard.
Lastly…I want my experience on a recpie to be the same at 4-6 week mark to the 8-10. Generally they (custards are diffferent). For me a 2day, 7day, 2 week, and 4 week are slightly different or greatly different. I know…people say this a a great SnV and it will be good down the road? Really? Ok maybe for some…but for me, it isn’t. Although I can’t taste creams I taste everything else really really well. One drop of fa pepermint or cinnamon in a 30 ml steeped for 6 weeks is still there. 0.25 fa mallow…I cant still taste one grain of mallow.
And if someone thought they rambeled. Lol. I’m
So to some it up. Use the right amount of flavoring in the given situation to give YOU the best vape experience ever…every single time. Don’t give two shits when someone says your too high (and the mix tastes really good to you), too low, or discount the second flavor preak when there is one sticky candy note in lime flv. Lol But doooo take note when some posts an orange cucumber recpie two seconds finished mixing with ultra low notes and smile a bit…and say…somewhere in my drawer is a cucumber frape mix I want to try. Dooo learn from people and not take a hoity toity attitude when someone posts something different.
I’m not going to edit this. (Well maybe later). So there will be a ton of grammar and thumbing issues above.
