Ollie's Soaps. I have never had any lavender from her, and this was nice, but the serendipity was very muted. On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming, 5.5/10. The throw was a 5/10, for a total of 5.5/10. Not my favorite from Ollie's Soaps and I doubt I would repurchase it, so...
Crabby Candle Co. I have had this tart for quite a while and have been looking for an excuse to melt it. This upped the lavender amount, making a really nice sleepytime tart! On cold sniff, 5/10. While warming, 6.5/10. The throw was a 6/10, for a total of 6/10, slightly rounded up. It lasted all through the night, and then a tiny bit when I woke up. I would probably repurchase this.
White Barn No. 3, Renew & Refresh candle from Bath & Body Works. This candle is freaking AMAZING. Renew and refresh is right!!
Candles By Victoria. I just don't get it. I don't know what I am doing wrong. These scent shots DO NOT WORK FOR ME.

Back Home Scents & Suds. I have never heard of this company and I got this tart from my Simply Sensational Sampler February box. It was really strong at first, but fizzled fairly fast. I woke up at 2am (after falling asleep at midnight) and couldn't smell anything. On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming, 5/10. The throw was a 5/10, for a total of 5/10! I might repurchase this scent, but I am looking forward to making a purchase from this company anyways!
Candles From The Keeping Room's Coconut Marshmallow. I have heard a lot about this scent, and I enjoyed it, but it's not my favorite scent ever. I melted this one for about 3 hours and I would repurchase this to blend. It was creamy, toasted coconutty, and you could really smell the fluff of the marshmallow. On cold sniff, 5.5/10. While warming, 7/10. The throw was a 6/10, for a total of 6/10!
Front Porch's Country Cinnamon, one of my favs. It's very spicy, very creamy, very wonderful. On cold sniff, 6.5/10. The warm throw rating it 7.5/10. The throw on this one is a 6/10, for a total of 6.5/10! Great spicy scent, and I recommend that if you like spicy, you will like this scent! I will always repurchase this, and it lasted about 4 hours.
Front Porch's Cake Shoppe...and I was not a fan of this. It smelled like buttery maple frosting. It just wasn't my thing and I would not repurchase it, but if you're into suuuuper sweet bakery scents, you'll dig this. It lasted about 2 hours in our bedroom before we needed some air. On cold sniff, 5.5/10. While warming, 4/10. The throw was a 6/10, for a total of 5/10.
Front Porch kick, I found Mimosa & Mandarin in my wax bin and figured, why not? This was veeeeerrrry bubbly and effervescent. The orange almost takes a backseat to bubbles. Not a fan, and it only lasted an hour. It was giving Josh a headache. Not a repurchase. On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming, 4/10. The throw was a 5.5/10, for a total of 5/10. Meh.
Front Porch, unfortunately...I'm not trying to get rid of anything, just trying new stuff. Welcome Friends started out as a nice, spicy scent, but drifted into weird "prim" territory. I am finding I don't like "prim" anything in mah tarts. On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming 3.5/10. The throw on this was a 5.5/10, for a total of a reluctant 5/10. It only lasted an hour before headache inducing spices kicked in and I WON'T repurchase this.
Closet Full of Wax is having a FREE SHIPPING sale until the end of February. OMG! She has some really great scents on her list, so if you're looking to try a new vendor, try out Michele's shop! I have been obsessed with her Bedtime Bath scent, so this was Saturday's nighttime melt. It's so nice, so soothing, lavender, chamomile, and...some3thing else. It's a Johnson & Johnson dupe for a shampoo or bath product, I think? Amazing, lasted most of the night, will repurchase again! On cold sniff, not too much, 5/10. While warming, 7.5/10. The throw was alright, 6/10, for a total of 6/10!
Sweet Fixations' Cozy Home. This was just not good. It had all the reminders of a kitchen cupboard, and not in a good way. I swear I got a hint of curry in this tart. I dumped it out after about 30 minutes after I got up (7am). Not a repurchase and not a good start to the morning. On cold sniff, 5/10. While warming, 3/10. The throw was a 5/10, for a total of 4/10, rounded slightly down.
Tiffany Candles' Apple Cinnamon Spice is easily one of my favorite scents from her. I have this in a 3-pack in her new wax, so if it's as strong and nice as this one, then yay! This lasted about 5 hours. Perfect blend between apples and spices. Always a repurchase, and maybe even in candle form! On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 7.5/10. The throw was a 6.5/10, for a total of 7/10, rounded slightly up.
As I've said before, I've been loving Closet Full of Wax lately! Bahama Mama was not my favorite scent, but it was nice. I ended up adding a tart in Coconut Lime Verbena from Tiffany Candles to give it a change in scent. This lasted 3 hours. I would repurchase Coconut Lime Verbena, but not Bahama Mama. On cold sniff, 5/10. While warming, 5.5/10. The throw was a 5/10 as well, for a total of 5/10. With the coconut lime verbena, it'd get bumped up to a 6/10.
Currently, I have CFTKR's Pink Sugared Fluff melting. It has been on 2 hours without a sign of stopping. It's very pink and very sweet, but I enjoy it thoroughly! It's got medium-strong strength. I would definitely repurchase this, I think this is one of my favorite scents EVER. On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 7.5/10. The throw is a 6.5/10, for a total of 10/10. The numbers don't matter here, folks, this is a definitely one of the best!! Delicious!
Happy melting, y'all! Any highlights from your weekend? :)
