Eliquid Flavour Recipes

Recipes for FlavourArt Flavourings.
This page is a continuous work in progress as
I add some of my own recipes and vapers add
their recipes using FlavourArt concentrates.
If you would like to add a recipe/recipes of your own,

the dedicated thread on UK Vapers Forum.
Blending flavour concentrates before you add them to your eliquid is a good way of creating your
own personalised favourites and will save wasting flavourings and eliquid; this is the way flavourists
create their blends and I'm sure it will become much more common amongst DIY mixologists.
If you follow a recipe that lists the percentages of flavours as percentages of the final eliquid, then
you will have the correct proportion of flavours to each other, but you will be mixing it at the same
overall flavour strength as the creator of that recipe. We all know how personal tastes and flavour
strength preference can vary widely, and that making a liquid that tastes too weak or too strong can
be so frustrating. Blending a small amount of the required flavour first means that you are then free
to experiment with it; you can try different strengths by making small samples with eliquid, try it with
different Nicotine strengths, different VG/PG ratios, each time just with a 3ml sampler.
I always work with very small amounts of concentrates when developing a new blended flavour, even
as little as 2ml-3ml, as that is all I need for test purposes. Choose the flavours that you are going to
blend and try to set the initial percentages of each one; this is not easy at first but as you gain more
experience you will be able to make educated guesses which will speed up the process and hopefully
reduce the number of changes you need to make in order to perfect it.
Make detailed notes of every recipe and every change you make, ie Recipe X Version 1, Version 2 etc
so that when you eventually find your perfect blend, you can easily recreate it as you have it written
in your notepad.
When you have made your first sample of blended concentrates, allow it to steep (blend) for a while,
3-5 days for Sweet/Fruit blends and 10-15 days for Tobacco/Complex blends; leave it in a bottle with
the cap on, preferably in a dark place away from direct sunlight and excessive heat. You can give it a
gentle shake once a day, but just let molecular interaction take place between the individual flavours.
New compounds will be formed and they will mostly be the background flavours that will fill the gaps
in between the original main flavours; this is where the trial and error (much patience) aspect becomes
important. Sometimes flavours that you think might go well together don't work, and others that you
think sound unlikely combinations can often surprise you, that is the fun of discovery!
When you have steeped the blend, give it a shake and place a few drops on a piece of tissue so that you
can do a smell test; waft it around a little to dissipate the aroma, as concentrated flavours can often be
deceptive with their intensity. If it smells okay, make up a small sample with your eliquid (3ml is enough)
using 5% of your flavouring and vape it for half an hour; this will tell you two things, whether or not you
like the flavour, and if 5% is too little, too much, or about right. You can then make the necessary changes
for the next sample in that recipe; repeat these steps until you have your WOW moment, but remember
to make notes of every change and every sample. If you are a perfectionist, it could take considerable
time before you are finally satisfied with your blend and, to be honest, many might not even make it past
the early stages; but with patience and care you will strike gold at some point and that is worth the wait.
It usually takes me 3 to 6 months to develop a blended flavour from idea stage to saleable stage.
Some mixologists steep after they have added the flavours to the eliquid; it's a matter of choice, but I
usually mix, shake, and vape, as the steeping has been done with the concentrated blend. The exceptions
to this are Custard flavours, they will need steeping for at least two weeks once they have been mixed with
eliquid.FlavourArt Custard has a prominent Citrus smell/taste initially, but over time that will fade back and
the rich Custard flavour will develop
The key elements are patience and accuracy; make notes of every single recipe you try with the percentages
recorded. Allow time for the concentrated blend to develop before adding it to your eliquid to sample.
When sampling time arrives, start with a low percentage of flavour and add to taste, again keeping notes,
this will make it easy to recreate your good recipes.
There are many good websites for mixologists, UK Vapers being one of them. There is a Mixology section on
the site with forum members always willing to help, share their knowledge and recipes, and offer support.
Consider it a journey with no specific destination, but which will lead you to many wonderful places along the way.
Click on any of the flavour names to see the percentages of each flavouring used to make the concentrated blend.
Remember, don't vape these without diluting them in eliquid once they have blended.

Click on any name to open up the recipe details. The percentage figures in brackets are for blending the concentrates on their own
and have, in some cases, been rounded up or down slightly for ease of use. The figures not in brackets represent the percentage of
that flavour in the finished eliquid.

You will see that some of these use a tiny amount of Sucralose; we do not stock Sucralose or any other listed sweeteners. We do stock Vanillin Crystals which can be diluted in PG and added in small amounts to impart some sweetness to a flavour although it is not officially listed as a sweetener.

If you are blending your concentrates first and allowing them to steep before mixing with your eliquid, there is a
very useful and easy to use Mixing Calculator designed by Tod Muller here.
You simply enter the Nicotine Base Strength, the Target Nicotine Level, the Amount to Create, Water Added (optional)
and the Flavour Percentage. The required amounts will be displayed in the lower table and include,
PG or VG with nicotine (your base eliquid), PG or VG (no nicotine), Water (optional), Flavouring.
If you need a more in depth Recipe Calculator for when you are adding all of the ingredients at one time, there is one
available for free here:- eJuice Me Up.
