My third ADV was created in June 2019. This recipe changed the way I develop recipes. Honey, Dew My Melons was when I realized how to layer flavors. I had been vaping a lot of single flavors, mostly testing them, but some because they were just good. I tested FLV Wild Melon and fell in love with it. I set out to create a recipe with it, but unlike my two previous ADVs, I didn’t try to think of the vape as one flavor. I looked at it in layers. I wanted FLV Wild Melon to be the main flavor, I wanted it to sit in a strawberry cream base, and I wanted to blend it all together. This was my very first 1-2-3-4-5 (%) recipe and it happened on accident. I was just plugging in the flavors in layers and when it was done, it went 1-5.
Also, this is the only version of this recipe I ever had to make. I tried to get some help from the diy_ejuice discord, but the only real help I got was coming up with the awesome name for it. The recipe never changed. I love it.
FLV Wild Melon is one of my favorite flavors, so I built this recipe around it. It is a mixture of melons, which gives different people different prominent notes. I taste watermelon and honey dew.
One of my favorite e-liquids is a strawberry, watermelon, bavarian cream blend (supposedly — I haven’t been able to clone it). I decided to try Wild Melon in such a blend, so that is where TPA Strawberry Ripe and TPA Bavarian Cream DX come in. At this point in my mixing experience, I had figured out DX generally stands for “Don’t Use”. Alas, it was my only bavarian cream at the time, so here it is. I added TPA Vanilla Swirl to help the base and I feel it does a good job with that layer of the recipe.
I used INW Cactus as a blending tool for this recipe. It is high enough that it does affect the flavor, but I love cactus and it does its job well here.
At this point I had about 40 flavors in my stash, so I was still fairly restricted in my choices. I’m pretty sure I can remake this and get it below 10% total flavor now. I like it the way it is though, so I may not do that, just so I can say I nailed it on the first version 😉 I will probably attempt something in the future to replace this, because doubt I’ll buy anymore TPA anything DX.
|Bavarian Cream (DX) (TPA)||4.00|
|Cactus (Kaktus) (INAWERA)||1.00|
|Strawberry (Ripe) (TPA)||5.00|
|Vanilla Swirl (TPA)||2.00|
|Wild Melon (Flavorah)||3.00|
Substitutions: Any bavarian cream around 2-3% should work fine here. It wont be exactly the same, but it may be better.
