    Not a recipe, just a heads-up. If anyone is after an authentic Handy Andy flavour give INW Shisha Fresh Mint a try ;)

    Made this a while ago and was actually refreshing.

    Tfa spearmint 1.5%
    Skyblue menthol 1 drop per 10ml
    Sweet and tart 1%
    Cotton candy 1%

    Minty menthol with a nice twist, breath for 2 hours then shake and store for 5 days

    I personally love this. I make regular batches and I like to "wash my mouth out" with this in the evenings. I personally like dessert juices but my mouth get tired of the taste very quickly. I then vape this in the evenings and tomorrow the desserts are tasty again.

    Im still trying to get a nice Menthol going, but one thing i can add - FW Extreme Ice - beautiful.

    Its a mix of Koolada and Menthol. Mild. But whats really nice about it, is that it doesnt easily take over a recipe, which Ive found Menthols often do.

    Sorry EM not email. It's a very nice refreshing litchi vape with slight strawberry some find the menthol a bit too strong. I like is as it gets rid of vapers tongue. Reminds me of the litchee jive ice creams but with menthol steep for 1 week

    This has been my go to minty juice for the past few months. One of those that keeps you interested and one can vape for extended periods. Not an overwhelming flavour.

    This is based on HIC's recipe here. Just as is it tastes exactly like the Tic Tac Mints in the picture above. A very slight cool-mouth effect and for me the Anise was a bit distracting, although is fades over time. Once I added the INW Eucalyptus & Mint is was perfect for my taste. A more intense (but not overwhelming) cool sensation and feels to me as if the Anise is more in balance. Do not use heat as the mint will fade. Shake and vape.

    Tic Tac Fresh Mints
    FA Peppermint 2.5 %
    FA Anise 2.0 %
    FA Vanilla Classic 1.0 %
    INW Eucalyptus & Mint 1.0 %

    Sup ladies and gentlemen, this is not 100% my own recipe - but it works like a charm.
    It is Misty-ICE, so the general misty recipe from DIYORDIE with menthol, trust me it is really really good. Well I love it.

    Da Recipe:


    FLV Boysenberry 4%
    FA Fuji Apple 2%
    INW Shisha Strawberry 4% <-- Can be subbed for the following 1% TFA Strawberry 2% CAP Sweet Strawberry 2% CAP Strawberry Taffy
    FA Marshmallow 1%
    FA Artic Menthol 2%
    TFA: Koolada 1%
    FW Candy Cane 2 %

    In general I find my menthol a flippen lekka base menthol:
    FA Artic Menthol 2%
    TFA: Koolada 1%
    FW Candy Cane 2 %

    Beechies Musk

    7% Fruit Circles (TPA)
    1% Koolada 10% (TPA)
    1% Menthol (TPA)
    4% Musk Candy (TPA)

    Flavor total: 13%
    My sister and sister-in-law's ADV. Growing up in the 70s they used to hive off to the back of their respective properties to go and smoke without getting caught. For some reason they thought that Beechies musk would camouflage the reek of tobacco. Them crazy 70s.

    No lemon cream (that's you Fruit Circles) comes off the vape, it's used only to tame the childlike candy-ness of the musk. And the menthol/koolada give the menthol tang of the gum. Not my kind of thing, but it got them both off stinkies. I have a theory that the flavour of the musk triggered a nostalgia that made the transition easier.

    Might be worth a go, but that musk is killer strong so I think you would need to drop the musk % or find something else that can tame that monster.

    Nothing but Menthol:

    1% Koolada 10% TFA
    4% Menthol TFA

    My goto menthol at 6mg nic for my Kayfun as a palate cleanser. Also HRH's ADV and what is getting her off the stinkies.

    I have some FA Peppermint (Mild Winter) that will be up for experimentation soon :)

    Good Morning Guys.

    I am a bit in a hurry, just to let you know I opened two bottles of menthol yesterday, one a coconut menthol and the other a fruity. I got the recipies from the net and tweaked it till perfection. All I can say is I got it. Will post the recipies later during the weekend.

    I've given this one a good chance, because it's a little crazy... But every day this past week, all day for work, this has been filled up in the Dripbox:

    Vapor Trails discontinued 'Kool Beans'

    Kool Beans!

    • 2 drops Caramel Cappuccino (TFA) per 10mls
    • 3% Vanilla Swirl (TFA)
    • 3% Sweet Cream (TFA)
    • 2% Caramel Candy (TFA)
    • 3 drops per 10 ml Koolada
    I switched out the Caramel Candy for 1% FA Caramel.

    It's like an iced coffee. It's a little weird, but as a coffee lover, and mint/menthol fan, this is a perfect ADV for me. It doesn't seem to get old, when I'm mindlessly vaping.

    I tried HIC's Halo Twisted Java clone, which is the same profile, and think this is far better.

    If you buy the TFA Caramel Cappuccino, keep it separate from the rest of your concentrates - it's insanely strong.
