Review: Jaimie Lauren Cupcakery and Confections in Wax's Wicked Watermelon Serendipity Jaimie Melon Ball Fizz

WOW, that title is a mouthful!
I have mentioned several times that I am sad that Jaimie Lauren Cupcakery and Confections in Wax closed. It is for the best for the vendor. That being said...when you get a scent or a blend that's really, really good, you sort of selfishly wish they were back.
Well, this is the case with Wicked Watermelon Serendipity Jaimie Melon Ball Fizz.
I was gifted this tart by my waxy pal Karen friend for Christmas. I was excited to see such a strange sounding blend, mainly because I know Karen likes to blend stuff that has a way of turning out really, really awesome.
It smells so good while warming, even better than it does cold, in fact. On cold sniff, I really only smelled Wicked Watermelon, which I swore was a Scentsy dupe but apparently not. Don't get me wrong, I love watermelon, but I was initially disappointed because it was all I could smell.
While warming, this really bloomed!
Almost instantly, the watermelon mixed with the coconut note in the serendipity. WOW, it's a really nice combo! Also, there was a hint of sweetness unlike anything I had smelled in these two scents before, so I had to assume that was the melon ball fizz coming through. Overall, this one little scalloped tart lasted 8 hours in the bedroom and fizzled the last hour and a half or so. I would definitely buy this blend again if JLCCW comes back!

**PS (and unrelated to this post): If you have bought your hot plate warmers on in the recent past (particularly from Candles Warmers Etc.), PLEASE turn them over and make sure they are 24 watt hot plates, not 20 watt ones. 24 watt warmers seem to be phasing out all over the place, and lots of vendors are selling 20 watt warmers labeled on their listing as 24 watts. It makes a difference, people!**

Cold Rating6/10; all I smell is watermelon on cold sniff, but it's decent enough! I was initially disappointed...
Lit Rating: 7.5/10; ...but this smells wonderful while lit! You get the coconut from the serendipity, the watermelon, and the sweet melon from the fizz scent. But, no fizz like a soda or a drink scent. This is so good! Thanks Karen!
Throw Rating7/10; pretty great throw, too, not disappointed with this at all.
Overall Rating7/10; unexpectedly good combination. Blends can bite you in the ass if they are bad. Spring means WATERMELON SCENTS!!! I don't like the fruit watermelon in real life, though. What's a melon ball fizz, is it a drink? MENTIONING DRINKS AGAIN. Another closed vendor, more sadness.


  1. This sounds soooo amazing!!! Glad you got such a great scent for a gift. This 24 watt madness is crazy! Does anyone know why they are phasing them out? Are they dangerous? I just picked up the Michaels one this weekend. Couldn't pass it up for $6.

    1. This really was quite a fantastic little tart! :D

      I am glad you got a warmer from Michael's, I just went and picked up 2 from Pier One for $10 each. I am sad they are phasing them out, but never really heard why. Does anyone know?

  2. This sounds so good!!! I am going to need to start doing some melon/serendipity blends. Thanks for the reminder about the 24 watts, I need to do some stocking up before they are gone forever! *RIP 24 WATTS*
