    Some may know I hate most flavors and I like a simple DIY. I have settled on Holy Vanilla 10% with a drop (per 10ml) of Caramel for years. That is all I can tolerate, Well I finally got a chance to add a drop of W.L. Methol 10% solution. I used to smoke menthol 6 years back but I stopped that as the prices got so high and I had to also buy regular cigs for the wife.
    Not bad. I need to play with this. Maybe I only need a drop of Menthol to a 10ml base and maybe a drop of Vanillin, or who knows. Just adding a drop of this or that would make things easy for sure.
    But smelling the Vanillin bottle, I barely smell anything. Maybe their "Simply Vanilla" won't be horrible since menthol will mask any chemical taste that vanilla has.
    Hmmm. Time to experiment.

    That's what DIY is all about. Try a few other flavors, Vanilla custard might be to your liking.

    I have tried a few vanilla custards. I discovered that I hate anything to do with custard flavors, as with any french vanilla,

    If this is the DIYFS brand, have you tried their French Vanilla?
    Although you hate the French Vanillas, I though that one was quite good even stand alone at 5%.
    INW Shisha Vanilla is good to but suspect it's another French type.
    INW Vanilla Bourbon is a different one though it's also quite good.

    You could also try some Koolada instead of Menthol or even mix them together.

    Just brainstorming here:D.

    First of all update: By the end of the next day I was sick of the menthol.
    Yes DIYFS French vanilla was ok, but I don't like any hint of creamy, It just sits on my shelf and I use a little when getting low on Holy Vanilla.
    I do want to try INW Shisha Vanilla but it is about the same price as HV and harder to get. But if it is french vanilla or custardy, I'll pass. French vanilla tastes like a candle to me.
    I've tried Capella Vanilla Custard and that's nasty. my 4 oz bottle of that gathers dust for the last 2 years..
    Vanilla Tahiti, I tried for a day. That coconut taste was terrible after a while.

    Too bad, and yes it does taste like a French Vanilla maybe with a hint of Custard.

    I have a hard time tasting Coconut so I didn't even realize it had any of that.

    A more accurate description of Vanilla Tahiti flavor would be sun tan lotion.

    I still have the original 10ml bottle of menthol I bought 2 years ago. If I even look at it all I can taste is mint. I wish it wasn't so overpowering.

    buy some blank vg from a store and dilute it, put half blank vg and half your juice and it should be fine

    I've done that, I've diluted it with distilled water, no matter what it's overpowering. Which is not a big deal since I don't like menthol very much, but I would still like to work with it and not gag.

    Since the thread is in the DIY section, you can safely assume, it's Menthol concentrate.

    And hopefully one isnt putting half a bottle of menthol concentrate in with vg at the same liquid amount. Thats not safe to assume at all. No wonder it would be strong haha

    Deluting with destilled water isn't the best option either.

    No but I've been trying, the closest I've gotten it to where it's almost vapeable is a 1/10 vg solution then one or two drops per 100ml of mixed juice, but the other flavors still have to be potent enough to compete. I want to like menthol, but it didndoesn't seem to be in the cards for me. =(

    I'll have to get some too and add a few other flavors to lose the sun tan lotion part.

    For me it's an 8ml size of menthol. I had read on that other forum when I was a newbie to DIY, that menthol makes fruits pop. I did use a tiny amount for a while then just skipped that step.
