    Unhappy A weird challenge for the mixers out there

    G'day Guys n Ladies , I have an interesting challenge for you to consider and would love any and all advice you might be able to give .

    I have no sense of smell , nothing nada zilch , and have had since birth. No Olfatory Nerve. This is not to say I do not "Taste " things , I do , but probably in a vastly different way to which pretty much everyone else does .
    I started vaping way back about 4 years ago , when there was pretty much nothing fancy available , but I always drifted back to the analogues , simply because vaping did not quite stack up to how I required my nicotine .
    So after a long break from e-cigs, I decided to take the plunge again as things have improved greatly .
    Currently am happy with eGo and clearomisers but have a VV device on the way as well . Currently analogue free for a month , and can see me actually sticking with vaping this time .

    Now heres the guts of the matter .

    Pretty much every flavouring used in commercial e-cig mixes appears to be perfume or scent based , I can say this with certainty , as there are very few flavours I can actually taste that are anything like what they describe themselves to be .
    Menthol works , because that is a true flavour , rather than an olfactory driven response . As do some mints ( I really wish I liked the mints , but in truth , not so much )

    Ok so fellow vapers Riddle me this , do you know of ANY juices which actually have "Tongue " taste , rather than scent taste ?
    In order to appreciate the difference , think back to when you have had the worst headcold ever , and all your food tasted like crap or was tasteless.
    Was there ANY vape you had that still tasted strong?

    I can appreciate this is asking a lot for those of you that have all your senses to comprehend or help out with .
    Taste is very subjective , and is in reality for "Normal people" over 90% scent driven rather than your tongue .

    To give you an idea , the strongest vanilla flavours out there , I get NOTHING , just a harsh as hell throat hit , without any of the flavour or smoothness , a strong Dekang Coffee, I get just the faintest of caramel sensation at the back of my mouth . Things like pear, apple, fruity mixes ... absolutely nothing , in fact I often have to add a little Glycerol( VG ) to smooth them out and add some sweetness to them to make them vapable .

    Funnily enough , Std tobacco flavourings , do taste a bit like analogues , because they often use actual tobacco flavour , so to me it has a comparable taste to analogues .

    I dont expect a miracle answer here , but Any suggestions have got to be better than wildly buying juices and being continually frustrated by the fact there is NO actual taste for me as described .

    I am perhaps the most disabled man in the vaping community :lol:

    Hi Fatman, welcome

    I have a head cold at the mo and I'm vaping a menthol, bit dulled but I can taste it. But ... have you considered vaping unflavoured? I do about 25% of the time, and for the "tongue taste", increase the nic slightly?

    There's also the option of using concentrates at greater than normal strength, but I understand that may not help in your case.

    I understand what you're saying Fatman but of course have no idea how it feels to be you. That said I can only offer something that seems relevant to me.

    I have found that one of the most 'true to life' flavours I have had recently and is quite strong is the Lime Spider from VapingMad, who have a sub-forum here on AVapers. Pretty cheap and worth a try.

    I am a menthol vaper and can highly recommend the Arctic Ice from VaporBomb in the US.

    Another 'tobacco' style flavour that has something going for it is ShireMalt from e-pipemods in the US.

    Another flavour you could try - but may not like - is licorice flavour. The one I have tastes like aniseed. Black jelly beans come to mind. It is a strong flavour but also seems pretty natural.

    I reckon Lime flavours will do the job, much more of a tongue taste than most flavours.
    JW - Mojito and VK - Lime are 2 that are particularly strong Lime flavours.

    Firstthing that sprung to mind after reading your OP was Tobacco Absolute, it is a VERY VERY STRONG taste, so much so that any more than 3 or 4 drops(after it is already diluted) in a 30ml bottle will overpower other flavorings.
    It has a grassy tobacco note but can make other flavors taste better. I have a juice at present with a small amount of it in it & just tested it by holding my nose pinched & definitely tasted something on the tongue, although it was pretty weak tasting.

    So maybe for you 5-10 drops in a 30ml unflavored juice would work or maybe a few more drops. The version I have is Perfumers apprentice, which came pre-diluted in a 4ml bottle, from an Aussie vendor.

    I found I could taste "cinner" (cinnamon) from juicewhore on my tongue. I suppose we would have to vape with a peg on our noses to kinda experience what you go through Lets hope we can find you some juice.

    I didn't think about cinnamon, since it is proven to crack tanks lol but PA cinnamon hot shots(or hot dots?) would have taste, it has the heat on your tongue.
