    I have a good collection of nicvape flavors so I thought I would move all my thoughts on the flavors here to the review section. as I get time I will update the list and add to the list.


    Lime
    6% -10%

    makes a decent melted lime otter popcicle juice. Not my favorite lime flavor but is good and interesting. If you like melted popcicles id recomend this.

    Strawberry.
    God awful lol . Going to let this steep out. Hoping it gets better. Its the only nicvape flavor i have tried so far that i dislike. Im kinda picky on my strawberry. Some will love , personally its not for me.

    Grape
    6%-10%

    this one i really like. Right now its my top flavor i think from nicvape. most people will enjoy it more a couple % higher. Ive got pretty good tasters so 6% is fine. To me it taste just like grape super bubble bubble gum.



    Real Watermelon
    6% - 10%

    this one Im not sure I get "real" watermelon but I do like this also. this one is really light to me. those that want that pow pow in your face might want to go higher than 6% for me its good. almost a slight creamy background to it. on my top list for watermelon flavors. kinda sorta like capellas double watermelon just a lot lighter and that is what makes it better to me............


    Ripe Strawberry
    6%-10%

    I like this one a lot better than the regular strawberry. it is more fresh or realistic that I thought it would be . not like biting into a strawberry but close. kinda like a mix of FA strawberry and inawera wild strawberry. I'll find some uses for this one .

    Orange
    6% -10%

    I get popsicle juice again lol. pretty cool and different. this one wants to be a real orange but its lacks the tanginess. its close in comparison to the new capellas new juicy orange. very orangey. not much to say really than melted orange popsicles.

    Creme de menthe
    6-10%

    I am surprised how high I had to go on this one. I picked up on the flavor around 4% but not the flavor you think of or want when you think of creme de menthe. for fans of this flavor its very pleasent. its a very light flavor. I would describe it as fluffy instead of creamy and until around +6% its more cool than minty. I might use it as an enhancer for other flavors in different recipes instead of a main flavor in a creme de menthe recipe unless its just this as a single flavor.

    Peppermint
    5-10%

    its peppermint. nothing exciting. not the best or the worst.

    Bubble gum
    6%
    and up.
    this flavor taste like the hard cheap pink bubble gum you get in packs of baseball cards. it is an interesting flavor that I think a lot of people will like. try mixing other flavors into it.

    Butterscotch
    5-10%

    not a huge fan of this flavor. its ok. taste kinda like burnt butterscotch. I couldnt vape it very long standalone but the undesirable flavor can be masked when mixing. never really found a butterscotch I like so this is just another one on the list for me.

    Green Apple
    5%-10%

    this one is just ok to me. it does taste like green apple.

    Rootbeer
    5-10%

    this one is just ok compared to other root beer flavors as a standalone . its a kinda creamy rootbeer flavor and could make some pretty good float recipes with it. was a bit worried at first. it smells just like peptobismol lol. luckily it doesnt taste like it.

    Gourmet cinnamon
    5-10%

    this one is another winner for me. not much of a cinnamon fan but this is good ! big red gum. a bit smoother than the bite you get from the gum but same flavor profile. has a lightness to it I really like. try it with some koolada or even the creme de menthe , its already cool and sweet but good with those additions also.

    I just sent the following email to [email protected] about their customer service availability;

    I've been trying to call customer service and sales to talk about a potential new flavoring. After 7 calls utilizing different options I've only gotten messages to leave a message! Even the 0 (operator) option doesn't result in getting to talk to a live person!
    I predict if You continue to run your business this way, it will not be successful!

    Just wondering if any of You have any contacts that can be called to get to talk to a live person?

    my first customer service run in was terrible. I almost swore them off forever. 2nd time I dealt with them it was satisfactory because they were righting the first wrong lol. my feelings on nic vape are mixed. the flavors are good I'll give them that. as a strictly review of the flavoring of the 20 I have tried Ive only not liked one. thats hard to do. Im a picky dude. I believe they are extremely over priced and have some pretty shady business practices. I wanted to order the 2 new ones I didnt have. I went all the way to the check out screen to make sure the grand total was right. they were going to charge me 13 dollars to ship 2 flavors. so to buy 2 flavors it was right around 30 bucks. not a chance in hell I was going to buy them. I was going to buy the over priced flavors but that shipping killed it for me. at that price the shipping honestly should be free but Id pay normal postage on it. so for me nic vape is love - hate. I love the flavors but hate everything else about it. I wont be buying anymore until its more reasonable. what flavors were you interested in ?

    Actually I was wanting to talk to manager or owner about coming up with a coumarin pipe tobacco flavor like the one they used to make their Coumarin Pipe Tobacco E-Liquid that they've sold for years. I really liked that and don't know of any flavors available that are similar!

    i believe nv is closed for Christmas today.
    I had no issues getting thru to Sara on call #1, even tho their message machine should have said they were closed.

    EWS, they do have a bunch of prototypes coming up.. and i know it is hard to wait on new flavors, especially as good as these are.
    I am really enjoying what i have.. and cant wait to see what they will release next month..
    that is the best, watching a company bring out new goodies.. ;)

    Well since I reported a troubled customer service experience; I certainly need to report the good one I just had with NicVape! Somebody must've read the email I sent cause I just got off the phone with a lovely person named Sarah from NicVape. She was most helpful and in addition to trying to get the info I requested, she is sending me samplesw of all their Tobacco Flavors! I am most happy with them at the moment !

    I'm really disliking the butterscotch. Or is it the French vanilla? Idk...I just mixed up smokys snow hoping for a nice vanilla vape. I bought all the flavors and mixed. I know she drips and mine is in a clearomizer. I guess I'll try the French vanilla standalone...I'm just getting an awful burnt taste.

    Haven't done NicVape's flavors but I did get my nic/PG/VG from there. Nic is pretty expensive from there by comparison to other websites, but they are fast and the nic is very pure. Considering a couple more less expensive options to stock up though.

    Ok so i have some ?'s. I just made my first batch and im not impressed. The juice is very harsh and the flavor is not there can anybody tell me what i did wrong. I used the e juice me up calc with all the propor inputs. This is based off testing the juice after shaking, letting breath for 3 hours and steep over night. Do i need to let it steep longer??

    Pg- nicvape pg @30 %
    Vg- nicvape vg @70 %
    Flavor- nicvape real watermelon @10 %

    I bought 2 flavors... Butterscotch and French vanilla. Both to me are awful flavors IMO. I know I don't have watermelon, but from the 2 I tried I'll never buy again! Hope it's not the case for watermelon for you.

    Maybe, but fruits usually don't take long. Could be the flavoring, some of them are just nasty. (FA is the best) You could try upping the flavor some, in case it's just weak, maybe by 1 or 2% until it suits you.

    you both need to go lower in your flavoring percentages..
    start at 3% and work up.. i find mine vary from 3% to no more than 6%

    Well we all have different set ups and tastes. I tried the butterscotch as low as 1% on a 1.8 ohm bvc coil as low wattage and slowly increased. It's just not for me. I get a burnt bitter butterscotch. The French vanilla same set up as low as 2% up to 6% it wasn't sweet at all, rather bitter... Increasing voltage tasted worse. It doesn't smell or taste like vanilla to me at all. I know some like nv and that's great! I only tried 2 flavors which on sale were just under $11 for 13 ml. Too expensive and didn't like, so won't spend the $ to try their other flavors, but that's me.

    The only NicVape flavor I've liked thus far was their ripe strawberry. Smells just like fresh cut berries and STRONG.....I use it sparingly. Laugh if you will, but my first brew was a watermelon made with Lorann's at 20% and it was GOOD! ;)

    I realize this post is quite old but I did want to reach out and let you know that we made the decision to move all E-Flavors into 15 ml glass at the same price points. Hope this helps a little :)

    I know this is an old thread but I'm looking for some good nicvape recipes with what I have. Real watermelon, gourmet cinnamon, pie crust, ripe strawberry, vanilla, french vanilla, vanilla custard, red apple, spearmint and cream.
    I tried looking at the website and couldn't find anything. Thanks

    And one thing that id like to mention is on the website there was gourmet cinnamon and subtle cinnamon with the same picture of the cinnamon stick and no description. I got the gourmet cinnamon thinking it was the spice. It would probably be a good idea to make sure people can tell the difference between the 2. I was going to use it to make a pie but realized it wasn't the right cinnamon.

    Sorry for the incredibly late reply here, haven't logged for a while! We're going to get some clarification on the cinnamon added to the site. As far as recipes go, these are just off the top of my head and may need some tweaking but....

    1)7% Vanilla Custard+2% Gourmet Cinnamon+2% French Vanilla (some Sweet Brown would go really well here too)

    2)8% Ripe Strawberry+3% Spearmint

    3)5% Ripe Strawberry+5% Vanilla Custard+2% French Vanilla


    Take these with a grain of salt, I am by no means an expert. Hope it helps!
