Anywho, I melted some stuff this weekend, some good, some fabulous, some bad. Here's a recap!
Zaleski Creations, yet another company I heard about from the Simply Sensational Sampler. While Southern Pecan Pie smelled good (and ridiculously accurate), there was virtually no scent throw with this. You had to be right on top of it or right next to it to smell the deliciousness. On cold sniff, 5.5/10. While warming, 5.5/10. The throw was 3/10, for a total of 4.5/10.
Candles By Victoria. Crackling Birch was so, so nice. It was more musky and cologne-y than tree-y, but there was definitely a hint of woods. Overall, I was impressed by this fragrance and would definitely try to get my hands on it again! On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 7.5/10. The throw was a 7/10, for a total of 7/10, and an impressed Lolo!
*I will note that, with all of the 3 CBV scent shots I've melted so far, the wax hardened INSTANTLY when I took the plate off the warmer. Usually, the wax stays liquid long enough to dispose of it, but these were insane...after trying to pour them out, it took at least 15 minutes to clean the warmer plate completely! Weird!
Candles From The Keeping Room continues. Lemon Fluff is less fluff, more fruit loops to me. I swear, it started out lemony, transitioned to lemon marshmallow, and ended as lemon fruit loops! It was crazy good. On cold sniff, 7/10. While warming, 8/10. The throw was a little less, hovering around a 6.5/10, for a total of 7/10. This is definitely a repurchase!
Tiffany Candles, an online wax vendor, and was sort of like a wickless candle. At first on cold sniff, it seems like you only get honey from this one, so I'm hesitant, but I'll give it a 6/10, because it was pretty strong. While warming, though, the honey transformed into a nice mix of oatmeal, creamy milk (but NOT sour like other milk scents I've tried), and succulent honey, for a 7.5/10. The throw was obviously strong, though when I went outside and came back in, I couldn't smell it too terribly much, so a 7/10 will do. The total on this one is 7/10, and a absolute repurchase!
Another scent...well, the photo didn't send to my computer and I had already deleted it from my phone. It was from CFTKR, called Sugar Cookie Zucchini Bread, and it was AMAZING. At first, while warming, it was straight zucchini bread. Then, it hit a pocket of only sugar cookie. Finally, the blend was phenomenal, sweet like a cookie but hearty like the bread. It was really, really nice. On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 8/10. The throw was outstanding, 8/10, for a total of 7.5/10. Who says I don't love bakery anymore?!
Ollie's Soaps' Brandied Pear. I've never tried pear scented wax. I like pears. I like brandy. Naturally, this sounded amazing. And it was pretty dang great! You really get each note: the crispy, delicious and fresh pear mixed with boozy brandy! On cold sniff, there isn't much there, about a 5.5/10. While warming, 7/10. The throw was a 6/10, for a total of 6/10! Would definitely repurchase this one!
Have a superb week!
