The best e-liquid flavors to make your recipes stand out

Manufacturers of top e-liquid brands like Dinner Lady or Vampire Vape know that e-liquid flavors make a huge difference to the final product. No wonder that they guard their recipes so rigorously. In fact, the flavour itself, apart from nicotine, is the component that is the most sought after by the end customers. It is the aromas that give e-liquids this characteristic aftertaste, depending on the needs and preferences. They also make the use more pleasant and are associated with the sweet smell of your favorite dessert or drink. Certainly, this is an undeniable advantage compared to ordinary analog cigarettes, the smell of which probably does not need to be described here.

European TPD battle – the tides are turning

Recently, there has been quite a few reassuring news from the European TPD front. Does that mean there may be a future for vaping in Europe?
