There is a combination of sweet flavors present in pastry flavored e-liquids. You could compare the taste to a doughnut or a part of a pie shell. Even though there are prominent sweet notes, they aren't overwhelming as there are hints of vanilla and cream as well. The combination of flavors almost gives a savory taste to the pastry liquid instead of one that is extraordinarily sweet. Think about muffins, strudels and cream puffs that come right out of the oven. You can smell the sweet combination when you open the bottle and taste the sweetness as it cascades over the tongue when you exhale.
