Project Wax #2, update #1B!

I melted so much stuff that I felt it necessary to break my post into two parts. Enjoy!
Daphne's Divine Scents and Aromas Loopy 7up Pound Cake
-6.5/10: very bubbly cake scent, sweet and limey, but fizzled after 3 hours. Lasted a total of 5, could have dumped it sooner. Medium-high strength, nice scent!
Streetman Candle Company's Cherry Chapstick
-5/10: definitely not my type of scent. As the name implies, this is a very artificial cherry, but it did smell that way (not like chapstick, but like the cherry aspect of it, if that makes any sense). Throw was decent, just not my thing.
Sweet Fixations Butterscotch Ice Cream
-2/10: yuck, gross, awful, bleck, ew. It's nothing that Sweet Fixations as a company did, it's just me...I HATE butterscotch scents. This isn't the first time, either. This was STRONG though, I could smell is everywhere inside and outside our house. It haunted me and followed me. YUCK.
The Scented Princess' Serendipity VBN Fruity Rings
-6/10: The VBN gets lost in this, sort of...there's a bit of extra sweetness, like a bit more coconutty fruit loops. It's not bad, just not my favorite blend. I melted both tarts this week, during separate occasions.
Tara's Candle Cottage's Peeps
-4/10: very weak throw, it was basically a light scented sweet tart; not very "marshmallowy," just sweet.
Candles From The Keeping Room's Key Lime Cheesecake
-3/10: low-medium throw; decent lime scent, awful cheesecake blend. I am finding I don't like cheesecake scents as they smell of moldy, stinky feet. Bleck.
Front Porch's Marshmallow
-6/10: great stand alone scent! Surprising! Very awesome, gooey marshmallow scent, sweet and lovely. On the lighter side of medium throw.
Molten Melts Chicks Dig It
-3.5-4/10: Forgettable, just a bubbly, fruity scent. Couldn't smell it unless you were right on top of it.
Lasting Scent Candles Pink Sands
-7.5-8/10: INCREDIBLE dupe! Spot on! Loved this...it traveled throughout the house, high throw and delicious smell. I have found a winner with this one! Fruity, sweet, fun.

Also melted:
-1 scalloped tart from Haley's Heavenly Scents in Pink Peppermints

  1. Wondering if I like butterscotch scents. I hope I do because I love how it smells in candy. I agree with cheesecake blends, YucK! I am also picky with key lime blends, they can be sick smelling to me. Do you like HHS pink peppermint?

    1. I would like to know if you do, I really tried to like them! Now I know someone else who doesn't like cheesecake blends! Now, a real cheesecake...lemme at it! :)

      I really do like HHS's pink peppermints! It smells funky on cold sniff, but it's not like that while warming. It's pretty strong!

  2. Ok, if you hate butterscotch scents why did you have that one? Or was it from a swap or something? I *LOVE* butterscotch scents and think I have that same Sweet Fixations one, or had it in my last order.

    I used to think it was caramel scents that I loved, but I realized somewhere along the line that it's butterscotch I love. :)

    1. Well, I like butterscotch, and the way it smells in bakery, so I wanted to try another vendor in wax. I have had one other vendors butterscotch and it was gross so I figured it was just them. but I guess it's just me lol.

      I may have another butterscotch ice cream for you!

    2. And I would gladly take that baby off your hands. I looked back at my own post about that scent and was relieved to see that I did indeed love it.

      I got Butterscotch Cookies in my latest haul, so we'll see if that's just as good. :)

  3. I feel ya on the cheesecake blends... I've started veering away from those too!!

    What scents would you recommend from Streetman's and Can-Do? I know from Can-Do, I love Honeydew and Cream and Coconut Milk & Lavender!

    Love your pictures/reviews!! :D

  4. Loooove FP's Marshmallow!

    I love butterscotch scents. Although some of them do smell wonky so I can see why you'd be hesitant to try more.
