    well first off - why are you using retraction in vase mode ?
    Shouldn't be necessary.
    There is no actual movement between layers that requires retraction.
    Also 4.5 mm is a LOT.

    what printer do you have ?

    Also lookin at the print, the actual thicknes of the model is more than a single layer - so VASE mode is not appropiate.

    Vase mode should be used for single line walled shapes and is - usually - a continuous line that doesn't use retraction because it never stops actually extruding.

    That model wall looks yoo thick for vase mode - to me.

    I wanted to make it thick and with max 2 layers.
    The slicer did not allow me to print it on a 1mm nozzle.
    So I'm printing it now 1mm thick nozzle 0.5 with 0.2 layer high.
    At first I had my retraction of but it dosen't print it a way I wanted. Got around the walls 180 degree and moved to the start position to put a new layer leaving like a little bit of plastic that looks worse and worse overtime after next new layer like on the pic. So I try to switch the retraction on to see if it heelps. Used 4.5 retraction as show on the official site from the manufacturer. Using ender 3 with the aluminium extruder.
    Think I got rid of the problem by randomising the seam. Looks a bit messy but much better
