Most people get into tobaccos for the first time through ry4's. Wanting to make that leap forward into heavier tobaccos and have an easy way to move forward? Vanilla for pipe is a woody vanillaish light pipe flavor. By itself, it needs a little help to make the Ry4 profile. A little more caramel comes with FA Caramel which most people have in their collection of flavors. Boosting the vanilla notes is INW Vanilla Shisha. This is meant as a starting point for variations. FA Caramel is a strong solid sweet caramel. Going lighter with it, you'll get maybe some RY3 ish ness. Swapping it out with some other caramels can produce a variety of results. None taste as solidly delightful to me as FA caramel which can hold up solidly when this is built off of with additional flavors. INW Vanilla Shisha is also my preferred vanilla here. I tried Holy Holy sometimes at 1+% but i feel it gets lost in the mix when other things are added so I stopped trying. Also it's been reformulated, so there's that. Vanilla for Pipe - I use this here anywhere between 1-2% depending on whether I add other notes or not. If I am to use the mix for a ry4 prominent profile, I will probably go VFP 1.5 and boost the dark tobaccos with Black or Dark for Pipe 0.5% to balance out lighter notes added to it, deepen the the tobacco notes, add complexity. FLV Red Burley added low can add some tobacco body and nutty notes while not making it a tobacco prominent mix and only increases in the bacco feel as you take it higher. FLV native is another additive to boost the tobacco notes here with success. Vapeable off the shake but thin, weak, and doesn't get fleshed out until starting at Day 10. Day 14 is the minimum for me before I think it has started to mature. Full potential at 1 month especially if you've added complex flavors. Please comment any tips, mods, subs, or suggestions.
