Review: Lasting Scent Candles Coconut Marshmallow Latte

It was raining this past week. Rainy, foggy, dim.
The forecast promised rain on Thursday and Friday morning that would fade as the afternoon arrived...
(...and I still maintain that being a weather person is the only job you can have where you can lie and get away with it...)
It rain most of Thursday and Friday...and Saturday and half of Sunday...(just in case you missed it, I live in San Diego...we don't get much water falling from the skies in these parts)

...where am I going with this? Not that I needed a reason, but rain means cold, and cold means coffee. How did I make this jump? Because I did, THAT'S why.
After the last coffee incident, I had sworn off all latte/mocha/frappa-who-see-wuts-it scents for a looooong time...but Lasting Scent Candles' Coconut Marshmallow Latte was calling my name the other day. The mix of sweet marshmallow, aromatic coffee, and rich, tropical coconut marry extremely well scent. So well, in fact, that it becomes WAY stronger once all the elements are added. This scent shot was just great, it lasted a really long time, and was super potent. It transported me to an island where it smells like coffee all the time...and I kind of liked it! I am addicted to coffee, I love it, and this was just fabulous. Give it a try! Makes me feel almost like I've got a piping hot drink in my hands.

Lasting Scent Candles Coconut Marshmallow Latte
Cold Rating: 7/10; very potent on cold sniff; it will be noted that this wax is extremely soft in the cup, so it came out of the scent shot easily; full smelling experience. Every note gets its chance to shine.
Lit Rating: 8/10; simply amazing, like I brewed a fresh pot of coffee and shaved fresh coconut inside, topped with fluffy marshmallows. YUM!
Throw Rating: 8/10; super strong, distributed all across the house. IN YOUR FACE scent!
Overall Rating: 7.5/10; VAST improvement over my last coffee experience. Makes me want java now. Double-checking post to make sure I hadn't added extra letters wheen I speell theem ouut becausse C-O-F-F-E-E. Heh? Fre? ;)


  1. This does sound yummy, and dang it I think I just need to bite the bullet and order from Lasting Scents. Just one or two tarts won't hurt, right? Riiiiight ... ?


    1. Just think, if you order now, because of their long TAT, you won't get it until the end of February, so it'll be a SURPRISE WAXAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! :D :D

  2. This sounds so good! I'm not normally a coffee scent kind of gal but I think this one is calling my name!
