    Concentrate and flavouring recommendations

    Hello everyone. I recently won a $100 gift voucher to EcigExpress | Electronic Cigarettes, e-Liquid and DIY Flavorings. They don't have much in the way of interesting hardware or consumables (if their comets were in stock I'd simply buy 100 of them) I use. Fortunately they do have loads of different types of concentrates/flavourings, decent quality nic, cobalt and amber glass bottles and vials, along with butt loads of other DIY stuff.

    I was curious as to what the mixing gurus would recommend I try out. I enjoy sweet apple flavours, spicy and rich earthy tobaccos, ripe natural banana type things and proper creamy flavours. I generally like things to taste the way they would actually taste, not the lolly versions of the alleged flavour.

    In terms of quality, flavour, and mixing magic, what would you suggest?
    Here is the list of flavouring brands they have:
    FlavorsExpress
    FlavourArt Condensed
    Flavor West
    LorAnn Flavors
    Capella Flavors
    Nature's Flavors
    Signature Flavors
    Tasty Puff
    Hookah Flavors

    Thank you very kindly in advance for any suggestions and recommendations.

    It really comes down to what you like. Sweets, Tobacco, Fruits, Deserts?

    I think its the capella custard that is the main ingredient in grants custard - theres a recipe on here somewhere but i think it is just mainly capella vanilla custard and a tad of either ethyol malta or fairyfloss as sweetner

    I like the lorrann licorice and add it into tobacco vapes - if you like tobacco see if they have tobacco absolute, which is a good base but needs a bit of sweetner/toffee/ etc etc added to it as its too dry by itself

    Nice score with the $100 voucher. How did you win that?

    You are lucky, I never win anything like that.

    I love ecigexpress simply for the amount of concentrates they have in the one place. The only thing I could recommend you buying that is a flavour you ilke and I have bought would be LorAnns Apple concentrate. It is a really nice red apple flavour, and also mixes well with a variety of other flavours. I did mix up a apple custard with it, and it was a real nice flavour, but I realised I didn't like custard vapes at all.

    They also sell unflavoured nic, so there's an option as well. I paid around $22 for 120ml of 100mg, last year, and it is still going strong. The only Tasty Puff I tried was in Joosy Fruit flavour, but it really was an arse juice. IMO.

    Happy shopping

    They requested some testing done on their new website back in January, I obliged by breaking their shopping cart 14 times
    I had forgotten about it until I saw the FB post rofl. I was like "Hey, thats me!"
    Thanks for the heads up on the tasty puff. And omg Red Apple, definitely going to pick up some LorAnn.

    Thanks for the info so far chaps and chapettes.

    Thanks for the info. I think I will stay clear of those ones.

    Looks like I'll be digging through the LorAnn and FA lists.

    I have over 90 flavours here, So I can confirm this: Stay away from Capella, It's rubbish. They're the most expenisve and you need to use the most of it in order to get nice results. A good 10%-20% are needed.

    I've found FA and TFA to be the best so far. For fruit flavours, definately TFA over FA.
