Hard question. So many I knew went straight from cigs to sweet flavours.You've started to quit smoking. Is there any flavor that is particularly suitable for quitting smoking?
I love RY4. It’s just tobacco-y enough. Like dirty caramel. And it works in bakeries…..my favorite kind of vape. TFA RY4 is pretty generic and probably what most commercial companies use. JF RY4 is richer and more tobacco forward. I have the FLV, but haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve heard very good things. And then there’s Holy Grail RY41…which isn't made anymore. My favorite of the bunch. V2 isn’t bad, but V1 is better. So caramelly, so so good.
The answer is....whatever flavor satisfies you so you prefer it to a cigarette!You've started to quit smoking. Is there any flavor that is particularly suitable for quitting smoking?
I only had to try about 150 flavors before I landed on my all day forever vape, which turned out to be clove. It was a happy flavor for me because, while smoking cigarettes, clove cigarettes were a nightclub treat. They tasted so nice and sweet, and other people weren't bothered by them. Clove cigs were, however, very harsh on the lungs, so again, only a special treat for going out. Tobacco flavored eliquids never tasted like cigarettes to me. Clove eliquid tastes just like clove cigarettes. But before discovering that, I swung through tobacco flavors, where I found that cigar and pipe flavors tasted more like cigarettes than liquids that were trying to be like "lite" cigarettes. Then on to exotics like chocolate tobacco, honey tobacco, hazelnut tobacco. Then the sweets. Velvet Vapors "Fuego" was a lovely hot sweet candy cinnamon I enjoyed in the morning with that first cup of coffee. Mount Baker Vapor cinnamon roll was a luscious flavor. Gothic Vapor red velvet cake was interesting. Absinthe became my 4am alcohol re-entry landing flavor, with a kind of French druggy feel I can't quite pin down. So many flavors, so little time.
Then I went through a phase of a couple of years of rotating five or six different flavors all the time, vaping what I was in the mood for, until it came down to the one all day forever flavor. I'll bet 8 of 10 vapers have a drawer full of reject juices. My rejects are down to a couple of bottles. I found I could mix the rejects with stronger flavors I liked, and use them up, so as not to waste the money spent. A teaberry eliquid will turn any other flavor into teaberry.
I hope that helps. Try things. You'll know what you like, and enjoy the journey.
When I started, you'd always get at least a couple of 5ml. samples of other flavors when you ordered. Those were the good old days... My summary didn't include even half of the many flavors I tried.Finally, someone who likes some of the flavors I like!
My favorites are spicy flavors, like anise/fennel, clove, cinnamon. My absolute favorite flavor (may sound disgusting to you) is Clove Bubblegum. Regular pink bubblegum is a close second.
I like vanillas and chocolates also, have a molasses chocolate chip cookie that's a favorite, and I also like almost any kind of citrus. Also like some cocktail flavors (VTA Botanical Gin is some good stuff) and mints.
And yes, I think most of us who mix have, maybe not exactly "rejects," but certainly some that are just meh, and those I just go ahead and vape because I'm not pouring them down the sink unless they are just plain nasty. I've only had a couple that were nasty enough that I just couldn't vape them. One of them was a blue raspberry - NEVER AGAIN - and one was a peanut butter and jelly that was just horribly gross.
I have not tried Absinthe as a single flavor, but I probably would like that, and I have some around here somewhere.
I LOVE Worcestershire sauce!! LOL. I'd love to try that! I never even thought of flavor profiles like that.When I started, you'd always get at least a couple of 5ml. samples of other flavors when you ordered. Those were the good old days...

That Botanical Gin sounds interesting!
The one flavor I just couldn't redeem, and threw it right in the trash, was Worcestershire Sauce. I'm adventurous, and the reviewers were saying positive things about it. Sometimes what a brewer is trying to express will come out completely different once it goes through the coil, so I thought okay, sweetish, salty-ish, hmmm. It was godawful.
I did like clove bubblegum, but not enough to buy it again. Plain bubblegum was good too, but I simplified by bringing it down to one flavor I can always enjoy.
I left the "tobacco flavors" fast. I actually despise the taste of it now. American Patriot gives me distinct cardboard flavor. And Monster Rich is not tobacco at all but HIGHLY flavored caramel/vanilla. SICKLY SWEET. I was a tobacco aficionado so I'm hyper critical here. I prefer fruit, I don't like custard/cake stuff either. That's just weird to me.That sounds like what I went through when I went from Tobacco to Fruit flavors~!
Agree 100 percent on the unflavored. I vape it whenever I have to be around other people. It isn't like unflavored tastes bad. It's slightly sweet from the VG. If the vape market were to completely disappear, I would happily vape unflavored from my hoard for the rest of my life, or drop a little flavoring in the non-nic portion of my DIY mix before adding the nic base.Get some UNFLAVORED juice into your collection. Sometimes flavors can hit wrong or even make you nauseous. Many are TOO highly flavored as well.
Currently I have Air Factory 36mg nic salt, and Onyx Saphire 6mg freebase. Just began mixing things and love being able to tone down the flavors.
