Lightning Round Reviews #1!

Sometimes you don't want to hear me yammer on and on and on about wax, right? Well, here's a new idea I'm trying out on the blog...a lightning round of reviews: I'll give you a quick (relatively) tally of my votes and a short sentence describing the item at the overall rating portion. I am starting to pile up on my wax empties!

Jaimie Lauren Cupcakery & Confections In Wax's Coconut Lime Verbena
Cold Rating: 5/10
Lit Rating: 5/10

Streetman Candle Company's Cranberry Woods
Cold Rating: 6.5/10
Lit Rating: 6/10
Throw Rating: 6/10
Overall Rating: 6/10 (not sure if this is a dupe, but it is much more perfumey than the B&BW counterpart!)
Front Porch's Pumpkin Cheesecake
Cold Rating: 6.5/10
Lit Rating: 4.5/10
Throw Rating: 6/10

Cold Rating: 5.5/10
Lit Rating: 6/10

Tiffany Candles Champagne & Fresh Strawberries
Cold Rating: 4.5/10
Lit Rating: 6.5/10
Throw Rating: 5/10
Overall Rating: 5.5/10 (hardly any scent on cold sniff (paraffin wax); the effervescance from the champagne was not there not my favorite from Tiffany)

Hope you enjoyed this new type of post! Let me know your thoughts on it! :)


  1. I like when you talk about the scents! :)

    It's funny that the CFTKR Apple Cinnamon Donut cuttable is in he shape of a pie...and not a donut.

    1. Thank you for your feedback! :)

      I didn't even notice it wasn't donut shaped with a donut name, LOL! It was very underwhelming. :(

  2. I agree with Abby, I love hearing you talk about the scents! It does get tedious sometimes though so these quick reviews are great too =)

    Apple Cinnamon Donuts didn't excite me at all either, it was a very odd scent. I gave my bag of that scent to my mom lol. Poor mom, she gets all of my rejects.

    P.S. A certain package should be arriving at your doorstep today =D

    1. Thanks for your feedback. :)

      Apple Cinnamon Donut...I am finding I don't like the "fried" smell most donut scents have. LOL @ giving your mom "rejects," she will appreciate them I am sure of it! :)


  3. Love this lightning review! So many good ones...Lime in da pink coconut looks incredible!!! and that color is amazing!!!!

    and too bad about the strawberries and champagne one...thats my favorite Victoria's secret scent!
