    What flavors? What percentage? Are you vaping them fresh, or have they steeped? There's no single answer to your question... some of their flavors are terrible in my opinion, some are awesome... some can be vaped right away, others need a week of steeping...

    Yes, they do setlle down after a week -- but they are perfumey, FA is probably better, but capella's is the best IMO.......

    yeah think I'm gonna have to stick with FlavourArt I'll try em after steeping for a week and get back to you guys. This was my first and probably last time buying TFA/TPA

    im thinking steeping+mts vape wizard+ethyl maltol might do the trick. but who knows?

    just gonna probably FlavourArts/ Capella's

    My impression of these flavors from tpa:

    The coconut tastes like perfume to me...
    Pineapple has a perfumish vomit aftertaste, which seems to get worse with steeping
    Piņa Colada is a combo of the above two
    Root beer is perfuming old sock smell
    Have not tried the others...

    I believe tpa is the company that has a cinnamon that tastes soapy as well.

    I've not tried any of those specific flavors from PA... but it honestly sounds like your problem is using the flavors too strong to begin with. 15% is on the high side for them on many other flavors...
    I'd dilute it to 10% or less, to the point it almost seems too light, and then steep to allow the good flavors to come back up.

    Perfumy/waxy or just plain dead flavors are a sign of overload 9 times out of 10 in my book. Everyone's sensitivity level is different obviously, but that's my not-really-all-that-humble opinion.

    High-strength nicotine concentrate, DIY flavorings, and pre-mixed liquids

    I think we have to remember that these flavorings were not developed primarily for eliquid. I've had good luck with essence flavorings from Eliquidplanet.com but I don't think I could ever make a living mixing diy!

    Out of the ones you've listed, I've tried the pineapple, pina colada, pear, and french vanilla.

    The pineapple and pina colada were very similar... both bad.

    The pear is one of my favorite vapes... needs just a little sweetener however. It was also a good vape with minimal steeping.

    The french vanilla needed a ton of steeping time, and eventually changed color to dark red. It wasn't bad, but not something I'd vape on it's own... would be good in a mix.
