My birthday is on Tuesday and I'm feeling old...do you know what that means? Well, you'll find out soon. Let's just say, stay tuned! ;)
I've been melting a lot more lately, but am still trying to figure out my place at this new house as far as wax goes. The guys who were fixing our bathroom took 3 times as long as they said they would, so we've not been able to get the shelving we needed to make put together and finished. Here's a photo of our DVD storage, THAT we DID finish!
Candles from the Keeping Room (also, from the gift Josh bought me for Christmas!), I had to try it out. Well, I must say, something was off about this fruit loops type! It smelled more cereal-y than fruit loopsy. Something about this didn't rub me the right way. Anyways, on cold sniff, 6/10, but while warming, I give it a 5.5/10. The throw was decent, with a 5.5/10, for a total of 5.5/10, slightly rounded up. I don't think I'd repurchase this again, but it did last 4.5 hours in the kitchen.
Candles from the Keeping Room's Rosemary Mint, the original, not the reformulated one. I really like this on cold sniff, but something happened to it while warming...it fizzled within an hour and a half, so I ended up turning off the warmer. I wish I had a ton of those warmers with the spout (the herbal green one), but alas, I must freeze and discard for fear of spilling wax all over the new bedroom, lol. On cold sniff, 6/10. While warming, 5/10. The throw was a 5.5/10, for a total of 5.5/10. I had high hopes for this, but it didn't last very long. :(
Valencia Triple Scented Soy Wax Melts in the scent Manhattan. This was a lovely scent, sort of masculine yet for of like perfume...it was really, really nice!! It didn't have a huge throw, but I enjoyed melting it. On cold sniff, 7/10, just great. While warming, 6/10. The throw was a 5.5/10, for a total of 6/10. The Here's a comparison of the scent shots:
CFTKR-centric...anywho! Cotton Candy Frosting is simply amazing, one of the truest cotton candy scents I've smelled; it's not sure strawberry like some other I've tried, but really like spun cotton candy! The frosting element just adds more sugariness. This lasted 6 hours! On cold sniff, 6.5/10. While warming, 7.5/10. The throw was a 7/10, so the total is 7/10!
CFTKR. Another minty scent I was hoping would blow me away, but didn't. This was more noel than peppermint, unfortunately. It was just okay. I give this one a 5.5/10 across the board. It lasted until about 3am.
Hope you enjoyed my recap! I have put my photo-tagging program on my laptop, so hopefully there won't be big stretches of time without an update like there have been (PS: I seem to have fixed whatever problem I had with posts not releasing). Enjoy your week! :)
