A couple of days ago I worked up a remix of Backyard Vanilla, so named because what I had in my mind at the time was the vanilla of homemade, hand-cranked ice cream (actually, ice MILK) like we used to make in my Uncle John's back yard when I was five or six years old.

I'm being lazy, to tell the truth. Hubbs got my flavors cabinet out from behind the massive recliner last week, but good grief, it's been SO EASY just mixing out of this pared-down set of flavors that I've accumulated in one box. So I did a remix using just a few of those flavors.

It could use a little something else, but it's ok. Main ingredients are FA Custard, TFA Vanillin, and FA Vanilla Tahity. 10% flavors. Have to ponder for a bit - I'm not sure what else would complement a true, basic vanilla. It may come around on its own after it steeps for a week or so. Or maybe I should hit it with 1% of TFA or FW Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

I think I'll give it a few more days.
I feel like TFA VBIC is probably more buttery than what you are going for. I've never had the FW, so I can't say. TFA Vanilla Swirl might work.

I’d definitely go with the FW. I can’t do the TFA(peppery), but if I’m remembering correctly, FW is more soft serve? Ish?

I might also swap the Tahiti for Vanilla bourbon or Madagascar. Doesn’t Tahiti have a spice note?

Shisha vanilla, maybe?

Flavour Art's website says that Tahity has an almond undertone. That actually might be what's derailing this mix. Next time I mix it, I'll go with Madagascar.

Now that I'm reading up on Madagascar, I'm not sure that would be the right choice either. Rats.

thanks. i'm looking forward to trying it.

But, I'm puzzled. If you don't have it written down, how do you duplicate the recipe when it runs out?
I'll post it tomorrow (don't actually have it written down) It also had some HS USA mix that I don't really like so dropped that in my recent version.

Long story (and why I waited to post the recipe) For my tobacco mix, I use an odd method (basically mix most ingredients at "full strength" for a 10 ml batch) then add 20 ml of unflavored base (so everything ends up half) I waited until I could try my new version (without HS USA mix) It's nice but almost too "desert" so will post the original recipe with that included. It's going to be way over 100 deg F today... have to do the lawns, got a late start, so will really try to do the math and post this evening. I'm glad you asked because I will be making much larger batches of this (it's one I always have on hand) and it's about time I wrote this down. Thank you for your patience. All my other recipes I have written down in actual %. Yes... I really need to get my mixing methods together (and make larger batches of all of them)

@newyork13 , here's my best guess:
FA Soho 2 %
PUR sweet tobacco 3 %
HS USA mix 2 %
FW salted caramel 2 %
SSA madagascar vanilla 1.5 %
Might go a bit higher on FA Soho and PUR sweet tobacco. Use any caramel/vanilla you want (or even butterscotch) My last mix I left out HS USA mix and just used more FA Soho. If you have any basic tobacco flavor, sub it or just leave it out for a really "desert" mix. PUR sweet tobacco is mostly a mellow "pipe tobacco" with lots of nutty notes. FA Soho is complex and that is why I love it.
Just as a reference, FA Soho is at least 3 % solo (but I love it so like it to dominate the mix) PUR sweet tobacco is weak (over 6 % solo) but is a wonderful flavor to use (adds a mellow tobacco and nutty flavor)
Hey... better late than never. feedback welcome.

Thanks for posting that. I'll give it a try when I next mix up a batch of juices, since I like those flavors.
Interesting to me is the %'s of the Soho and Pur.
In the two juices I've enjoyed (Soho and Pur were in two different mixes), I used twice that amount of them. The end results are strongly flavored (but happy for me), so I'm looking forward to trying the combination of the two at a lesser % to see how it works out.
Never had the USA mix, so I'll follow your suggestion about subbing more Soho.
I also have the Salted Caramel. But, funningly enough, I don't recall why I got it, nor ever tried a mix with it. So, this'll be the first.

I used to mix them stronger (on other people say I mix too strong) and ended up diluting the mix. Use a bit more (It's still good) If you have vanilla, use that too. This has been an ongoing experiment so I keep trying different ratios (one reason I never settled in on a recipe) You will like the caramel. Now that I've been vaping the new mix (without HS USA mix) I like it... it sounds like you also like a "desert" tobacco (there are no rules... I never tried to re-create a real burning cig... most juices that do that taste like ashtray... yuck!) I love the "nutty" aspect of PUR sweet tobacco (and even the tobacco is more like a mellow pipe tobacco) FA Soho is really good ( complex and rumor is it even has NETs in it) I tried to lower % in my recipe but normally mix higher. All tobacco recipes need a steep, but a couple weeks in enough.

Yup, I absolutely like dessert tobaccos. But, I'm also a fan of NETs.
I agree with you about the ashtray taste being off-putting. But, there are NETs which don't.

I'll let you know how it goes, but won't be mixing for a couple of weeks.

Have you used the Salted Caramel for anything else?

I finally tried my SFT of MB lemon tart... not bad. It tastes very similar to the lemon cookie I make (I'm getting cookie not pie crust which is fine... now I can save my lemon flavors for another fav recipe of mine) It's been steeping almost 2 weeks and might need a small boost of lemon (and just a bit of WF flapper pie)
