So much so that part of our backyard got a little bit flooded.
There was a crack in my window and the flood board of the passenger seat of my car got drenched. #SanDiegoProblems
HEY, before you get all judgy-wudgy, know that we don't get rain here very often, as referenced by our DROUGHT. :(
Anywho, being stuck inside this weekend, I wanted something fruity, but not something overly tropical like a straight-up coconut or pineapple scent. Pink Sangria sounded like just the thing to hit the spot.
I have been reaching for my Lasting Scent Candles tarts more often mainly because I feel like if I use them up, the Wax Goddesses will look down upon me and I will be able to re-order from them when they reopen! Well, hopefully. ;)
This scent was nice, decent in strength, and you could actually smell the drink in this! It was a fruit explosion with citrus notes, raspberry, grapes, and, well, lots of wine!
Unfortunately, the problem with this scent shot is that it fizzled rather quickly. I think I only got about 3.5 hours of go-time with this scent shot. I would repurchase this again because I liked it so much, but I wish the performance would have been different for me! That being said, it may do better in a different type of warmer. If you're looking for something tropical without being too coconutty or pineappley, this is your thing!
Lasting Scent Candles Pink Sangria (type)
Cold Rating: 6.5/10; having never had sangria in real life, I'd imagine it is just as winey as this tart smells on cold sniff. I smell alcohol, grape, berry, and a citrus note. This is good!
Lit Rating: 6.5/10; this is a very good drink scent and can be classified as such because you can actually smell the drink/alcohol part. Often, that note gets lost in the shuffle. This tart is not overwhelming, though! Fruity, fun, but I wish the "pink" in this wasn't just a name...a little pink sugar never hurt anything. ;)
Throw Rating: 6/10; this one had a good throw, but it fizzled fast. Unfortunately, I like my scents to last a long time! But, while it lasted, it did pack a nice medium punch.
Overall Rating: 6.5/10; nice on a rainy day. Tropical without being too pina colada. Again, wanting a gigantic drink with an umbrella. Fizzy lifting drink. Wine. Never trying sangria. Grape jelly is a newly discovered love. Wish this had lasted longer!
