Top 3 Regular Flavors to Use as Boosters and Additives

Top 3 Regular Flavors to Use as Boosters and Additives


Good day and welcome to a new video. Its been a while since my last top 3 discussion
video, so Today I want to talk about my 3+ 1 favorite flavors that I also use as boosters. These are common flavor concentrates that
can enhance and add depth to your eliquid mixes. And to get right to the point, here is the
first one for today. This is flavourarts desert ship. I usually avoid using this flavor as the primary
tobacco since I find it too bold, dark and smoky for my taste. It is hard to mellow it down when it’s the
only tobacco flavor in a recipe so I stopped using it almost completely. Until one day I was out of FA oak so I decided
to use desert ship at 0.5% in a recipe that had TFA’s Ry4 as the main tobacco. To my surprise desert ship worked better than
oak in this case and not only added an earthy taste to the mix that I was looking for but
also made the ry4 taste much richer. So on number one for today is FA desert ship
to be used from 0.25 up to maximum 1% as a tobacco additive. Now for number 2 we are going to a much milder
flavor and that is TFA or Flavourarts Meringue. You can use either one in this case. This is an excellent vanilla booster that
adds an additional mild and sweet vanilla layer on top of your existing vanilla or cream
flavor and making it taste much more full and realistic. Meringue is a very helpful flavor to have
and it can be bended to fit in almost any eliquid. In this case I mainly use it in cream, custard
and tobacco recipes but I have also found that a touch of meringue in fruit eliquids
sometimes will make the recipe taste a lot richer. Moving to the 3rd flavor this is tfa quince. This is a flavor you hear about very scarcely
but I believe this to be one of the best fruit boosters available. When its used at around 1% it will add a sweet
freshness to other fruits together with some extra pulpy mouthfeel. It is a relatively sweet flavor with a mild
apple/pear aftertaste which works great as a pair to almost any fruit. It will make almost any fruit you add it to
taste a lot more realistic and Because of it’s light nature it works better with primarily
fruit or tobacco recipes rather than creams. For cream and custard recipes I included one
more flavor that is excellent for that. So this is the last one and a bonus for this
list TFA dragonfruit. As I just mentioned this is pretty much an
alternative to quince but to use with cream based eliquids. Because of its emulsifying properties it will
help fruits or other light viscosity flavors to blend in better with creams or custards. A few years ago the secret to a nice strawberry
cheesecake recipe was always a touch of dragonfruit. This is information that you probably already
know if you have been mixing for a while now but its also a good tip for diy beginners. Tfa’s dragonfruit in general should be a
staple in any collection and you can see its success as a flavor from all the attempts
of other companies trying to imitate it. Most of other flavors come close to the taste
but if you need dragonfruit for blending rather than its taste then the TFA version is still
the one to get. All in all I hope this video gave you some
good information to help you improve your own eliquid recipes. If you have anything to share with us on this
topic as always leave it in the comments. I know I missed a lot of other common flavors
like cucumber or cactus so if you have any other flavors to suggest leave that below
for me to include in part 2. I want to say Happy Victoria Day to anyone
living in the commonwealth and I will see you again next week with something new.

  1. U should try vape train dragon fruit and when l do a fruit mix l use a couple of drops of inw pear it brings a sweeter taste and helps the fruits to shine more in the mix.

  2. Dear John, thank you very much for all the good vids! Very helpful for me. I am new in DIY… Expecting a big delivery from ecx. Will try many of your recipes!!! Greetings from Switzerland ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ Thanks and keep doing that great job.

  3. Thanks for uploading John. I Luuuvvv (FA) Meringue, it goes in a 'Lot' of my mixes & also (TFA) Dragon Fruit….I also really like using (FA) Fuji as a fruit booster too. Thanks again pal & Happy Victoria Day. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฟ

  4. Great vid thank you. All great to have. IMO Quince is so good for an apple recipe. Recently tried to enhance jam like properties any thoughts on favourites? Trying FA blackcurrant, FLV fig, FA Jammy candy wizard and they are good, each add something to the mix. Reducing harshness? FA pear and especially tfa vanilla swirl work wonders Cheers

  5. Thank you for your video.
    As a suggestion: I have been using FA Apricot at 1 – 1.75% as a sweet additive for fruits for years. I find it "brightens" the fruit recipes and adds a touch of natural tasting sweetness. It can also add to the juiciness of a fruity vape. Cheers from Australia

  6. I heard about quince but never got it into it, I usually usa FA Pear to achieve that, I'll definitely give it a try. Thank you John, as usual!

  7. FA Pear and Apricot, TFA Dragonfruit and Quince, INW Cactus and of course Meringue are great additives. I'd add FA Almond, especially combined with Vanilla. This is a recommendation of Jennifer Jarvis for those who have problems with tasting vanillas (like me). Haven't tried it yet.
