    Good day VU!

    So I saw this mix and I think this one is hella tasty and will fit my taste profile, I just don´t have that Vanilla Swirl in my stash. I cannot get the VS asap because it is so far from my place. Here is the link for this mix

    Credits to lost vapez!

    I´m excited to create this!

    When I clicked the link it said the recipe was private.
    Vanilla swirl was actually made as a "baddie free" sub for custard. If I had to pick a sub, it would be TFA vanilla custard, but that's my taste.

    Meant to add, I typed that name into their search box and went through the list. I don't follow anyone, so I don't know if that't the correct one.

    IMO, Vanilla swirl is a nice light, vanilla ice cream, so I think that Vanilla Bean Ice Cream would be wayyyy to heavy. To me, at least, this seems like a bold flavor mix, already. I might even just be tempted to use just a cream, not necessarily a flavor add, like FA Fresh Cream or CAP Sweet Cream. But, when all else fails, for me I go running to my old reliable FA Vanilla Classic (Madagascar), you might like INW Shisha Vanilla if you have that one.

    Can't say they taste the same, but whatever you do choose, I'd keep it low.

    I think @Teresa P is right on. Vanilla swirl is like duct tape in the vaping world. It smooths out everything in light, creamy vanilla goodness. The custard should do the same thing.

    I would try 1-2% fa vanilla gelato. Lovely smooth vanilla that blends beautifully

    If you post a link to your flavor stash we could recommend something that you already have.

    Yeah, it was one of the first flavors I ever got back in 2012-2013. Used with everything really. Adding a bit to tobaccos, fruits, you name it. :)

    Still use it, although some more specific ones like INW Vanilla for Pipe have came around since then.

    I mostly vape tobaccos, fruits and mixes of the two with some creamy mixed in. Not a custard fan.
    Although, I have come to like some bakery too of late. Never was much of a sweet-tooth. ;)

    I tried it and as the tip said was to warm bath it. It is so good and looking forward for more steeping time to see what will it taste like. But I used different brands with it.

    You got my interest about tobaccos :D maybe share it and maybe some of your favorite bakery types?

    Not much to tell man, I do very minimal mixing and don't usually use any recipes at all.

    Like a HS RY4 or HS Captain with some peach/apricot or vanilla in it, that sort of deal.
    The bakery stuff I've had lately is mostly one-shot mixes too like my Gooey Cinnamon Roll from OSDIYS with some LA Cream Cheese Icing added, DIYFS's Holy PoPo hit with a few drops of BlueBacco, etc.

    Maybe 1-2 flavors with some accent flavor added.
    I don't do fancy stuff. ;)

    Fancy does not always result FANCY as it is stated. Don´t be so negative man!
    Share it, I also prefer simple because it cost less and I might save some ingredients in the future.

    That’s a good idea, too! I always forget about that one.

    Lol! Maybe? I’ve gone a little overboard but I’ve heard many mixers say 200-400 solid, well researched flavors are pretty much all you need.
