Project Wax #2, Update #6!

Uggggggggggggggggggggh. This Project Wax box will not end, but I'm close. I am ready to be done with it so I can melt stuff that's transitional from summer to fall! Anyways, in a week I'll be done, so there you go. Here's this weeks melts!
Candles from the Keeping Room's Cranberry Bundt: 7/10, a very nice sweet cranberry mixed in with slight cakey notes. We liked this a lot. Medium throw.
Candles from the Keeping Room's Green Irish Tweed: 8/10, clean, green, and strong. Definitely a repurch, a great cleaning day scent!
Candles from the Keeping Room's Kiss & Tell: 7.5/10, fruity, flirty, fun summertime scent. Really nice, medium high throw. Would repurchase.
Candles from the Keeping Room's Lemon Noel: 6.5/10, not as good as Carol's other lemon scents. Medium throw, decent scent but not my favorite.
Candles from the Keeping Room's The Keeping Room: 4/10, wisps of spices but otherwise very light throw. I have wanted to try this scent for a long time but was completely underwhelmed.
Crabby Candle Co.'s Bliss: 5/10, super strong very cleaner lemon scent. This smells okay on cold sniff, but while warming it smells like disinfectant antibacterial wipes. Most of the points go to scent strength here.
Front Porch's Loopy Serendipity: 6/10, the first time this smelled weird, but I decided it was just me. Next time it was ok, but needed 2 tarts. FP's serendipity isn't my favorite. This was an ok blend. Not a repurch.
Front Porch's Pink Peppermint: 10/10, I have not found a pink peppermint quite like it, so I change my rating from 9.5/10 to 10/10. It's the best. So strong, so good. Love it.
JLCCW's Apple Butterscotch Cake: 4.5/10, JLCCW has a great, fresh apple scent, but the butterscotch cake was too sweet for me, and together they clashed. Nice throw, though.
JLCCW's Coconut Milk Lavender: 7/10, I am so tired of this scent, but this was nice and strong, especially for being one small heart tart.
JLCCW's Legally Blonde: 8.5/10, I am a legally blonde/blonde moment convert. SO GOOD. Fruity, delicious, slightly bubbly, YUM!
Lasting Scent Candles Sweet Vanilla Pound Cake: 7.5/10, so good. Medium high throw, not overly buttery, just the right sweetness, lingered throughout the house, loved this. Repurch for sure!
Pics, Petals & Scents Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Scoop Bread: 5/10, I've come to the conclusion that I don't like cheesecake in wax. It smells off to me. ICSB is hit or miss anyway, but this was just okay. Eh.
Pics, Petals & Scents Lemon Frosted Birthday Cake: 8/10, this, however, was incredible! Super bakery, lemon, and frosting mixed together, STRONG throw, loved it!
Rosegirls Macintosh Swizzle Sticks: 6/10, very sweet apple scent, low-medium throw, but nice.
Sniff My Tarts Camp Fire Dessert Latte: 5.5/10, I shant recap my horrible SMT coffee experience, but this was middle of the road. Not overly campfire-y or dessert-y, just a sweet coffee scent. Not my bag.
Sniff My Tarts Pink Sugar Baby: 7.5/10, nice pink sugar mixed with something sweetly clean. Nice throw too!
Streetman Candle Co.'s Blueberry Fritter: 8/10, Heather makes the only blueberry I like. This was incredible! Sweet, lovely, not overwhelming, yet strong. Great!
Streetman Candle Co.'s Lavender Sheets: 6/10, basically a lavender laundry scent. Nice, but it wasn't a good day for this when I melted it. Great throw!
Sweet Fixations Pink Lemonade: 3.5/10, cleaner lemon scent, not a fan. Throw was a medium though.
The Scented Princess' Serendipity Cotton Candy Pink Sugar: 8/10, amazing blend! So, so good! Great blend of the three equal scents.
Candles from the Keeping Room's Cinnamon & Spice: 9/10, finished the bag, it's such a great apple and spice scent. I love it, Josh loves it, so good.
Front Porch's Lime Cookies: 3/10, I think this tart went bad. It smelled quite curdled. Icky. Nasty. Not good.
Jack Be Nimble Candle Creations Mango Tangerine: 8/10, such a great, strong, fruity scent. The first mango scent I've really liked!
Sniff My Tart's Pink Keylime: 4/10, way too crusty, not enough pink sugar. Not a fan, though medium throw.
The Scented Princess' Pink Sugar OMG! Cake: 9/10, FABULOUS blend! Not an overly buttery cake, but enough to smell that it's there. Great pink sugar scent, medium-high scent throw! Repurch!
Two Timing Tart's Daydreamer: 4/10, manly clean scent, unfortunately not super strong. I should have let this cure longer.
Two Timing Tart's Still Not Ginger (all 6 cubes) 5.5/10, again, not very strong, slight ginger ale scent but nothing more than fizziness usually.

  1. Wow, I need to do this too. Which vendor makes your favorite Serendipity?

    1. JLCCW makes a fabulous serendipity, but I think my favorite would have to be either Rosegirls or Tiffany Candles. Not overwhelming like some can be!

  2. Well done again! I noticed that squirty wax (or whatever it's called) from FP, how do you like that form? I'm really apprehensive about scoopables and such.

  3. The end is in sight! Look at all those strikethroughs :D

  4. Wow have you been melting! :)

    The very first wax (Cranberry Bundt) immediately caught my eye! It looks so good; I love that red and cranberries sound great right now!

    I love how you label the outside of the labels with you rating! This is such a great idea! With CFTKR, you get a few and sometimes I forget how much I liked it (or if I should pass it along to my sister) :)

    You're almost there! Pics, Petals, and Scents looks like a nice vendor for my tastes!
