Welcome, one and all, to the first Weekend Wax Review for 2013!
...wow, it's even hard to type that on the keyboard, ha!
Are you all ready for some WAX?!? :D
Ava's Country Cupboard...there was an overly artificial rum smell, and it was fakely sweet, too. Something was off about it, and it lingers long after I turned off the warmer. On cold sniff, 4/10. While warming, 3.5/10. It was strong though, 6/10. Overall, 4.5/10. Not a repurchase for me, but I do like Ava's products!
Cupcake Candles claim to fame in the wax world has to be their sampler boxes. Well, I got my hands on one during the winter box run (I did have a 20ish% off coupon, too)! It's been curing for a few weeks, so I decided to start with my samples. I have no clue what's in Christmas Dreams and I could not find a scent description on their website, but it was overly floral and perfumey. It might should be renamed "sexy lady," ha! It smelled sort of like old lady perfume, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but this one was...off. It was just okay. On cold sniff, 5.5/10. While warming, 4/10. The throw was a 5.5/10, for a total of 5/10.
Ollie's Soaps' Peppermint Bark was a decent blend of peppermint and chocolate...so, what is bark? Is it only ever strictly white chocolate, or is it only ever strictly regular chocolate, or can it be a mix of both?! I smelled a creaminess to this mixed in with the chocolate and peppermint. I did enjoy it! On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming, 6/10. The throw was a bit less, only a 5.5/10, because it didn't travel outside the room too terribly much. The total on this sample is 6/10!
Kim's Tarts, this was just alright. Not super strong and the orange was artificial. On cold sniff, 4/10, virtually only a hint of orange. While warming, 4/10. The throw was not strong at all, 3.5/10, for a total of 4/10.
That's it for the weekend recap! Have a nice night, everyone! :)
