    I got a question for you guys,im trying to create a solid mango that last... the 3 mangos im trying to use is flv mango cbe double mango and cap sweet mango, when trying to create my mango should I mix with or without nic and any additives?

    Currently, with cbe and sweet it seems to fade after a few days even when upping the double mango to 8%

    Hi @Speedy_11

    Apologies, i saw you tagged me earlier but completely forgot to respond in the other thread.

    I always mix my juice with nic and have never had issues where it causes flavors to fade. I do this cause i vape the juice unless im making something which i really have my doubts on.

    My current mango go to base consists of CBE Double Mango, FLV Mango and CBE Aplhonso Mango and these 3 work like magic together. I havent noticed the flavors fading and i also use around 0.5% super sweet in most of my recipes cause i like it sweet.

    @ what percentages are you mixing the two mango's? I only mix FLV Mango at 1%, Double Mango around 2.5%. Before i discovered Alphonso i mixed Double mango at 4.5% and it worked great.

    Perhaps you are adding too much % which will cause the flavor to taste muted, Less is always more and work your way up but more isnt always going to make it stronger and will have a reverse effect if that makes sense.

    Oh yeah, Also try adding some TFA Banana Cream to your mangos, it will boost the flavor and will help with that mouth feel body you want in mangos. Dont wory, you wont taste the Banana Cream. Perhaps this is why i dont find that my base fades.

    Advise that was given to me personally.
    First mix without the nic.

    Once the recipe is perfected. You add the nic (also only add nic after the mix was mixed properly) :)

    I did not start vaping to quit smoking so I did not/don't need the Nic. I have however mixed some of my staple recipes without Nic and they are just not the same. I mix all my recipes at 1mg and that hits the spot for me.

    As for the Double Mango I have never found it to fade. I find it truly starts to shine only after a couple of days. My 3 Mango combo includes CBE/FSA Double Mango, CAP Sweet Mango and FA Costa Rica Special.

    Try using:
    Mango FE @5%
    Super sweet Cap @2%
    Black ice @1%

    This is a very good mix

    My vote is for FE Mango as the Top mango! Its got the same intense Mango as CBE Double, but at Half the %, so its more economic and I think it does better on a long steep than the CBE does.

    I also agree with @Vilaishima On the nic in samples, I personally feel that if you vape nic normally then you should use it in your mixes as your taste is used to the role nic plays in a juice and it DOES make a difference in flavor profile to some extent. I learned this when mixing Tobacco Juices specifically, The versions without nic never came close to what I wanted as my nic adds that sensation/experience to the vape.


    I also agree with Rudi on the SS. Dont get me wrong, I luuuv my Sweetner but Sho, 2% is roff.

    TFA Sweetener is 50/50 Ethyl Maltol and Sucralose. CAP Super Sweet is just Sucralose.

    I use both Sucralose and EM depending on the flavour profile. With certain recipes I definately prefer EM to Sucralose.

    I will have to try it but it won't be for economical reasons; FE Mango is R60 for 10ml and CBE Double Mango is R28 for 10ml so CBE would still work out marginally cheaper.

    Yeah but with CBE double mango, you need to use like 5% where with FE it seems 2.5% should do if i understand correctly

    Exactly so it would still be cheaper to use CBE Double Mango as you have to use double but it still costs less than half the price of the FE Mango.

    FE Mango
    10ml - R60

    CBE Double Mango
    20ml - R56
