Review: Sugar & Spice Gourmet Soy's Serendipity Marshmallows

Serendipity used to be my favorite scent.
I couldn't get enough of it.
So, as many of us waxies do, we buy what we like. I ended up with an overabundance of serendipity and eventually got to HATING it.
I couldn't even stomach it for months...
...well, on Oscar Sunday this past weekend, I found myself reaching for my old friend.
Sugar & Spice Gourmet Soy has one of the best, strongest serendipity scents in the wax world. Who am I kidding...Shanna makes some of the strongest stuff period!
Anyways, when I dipped into my big ol' box o' wax, I found this scent shot just calling my name. It was just what I needed to get back into serendipity again!
On cold sniff, it might be hard to tell that there is marshmallow in this because it really does smell like just serendipity. Upon melting, the coconut is strong here, and when mixed with the marshmallow, almost reminds me of a coconut cream pie type without the crust. The cherry is there, but it's not as strong as the coconut. I think the sweetness of the marshmallow really sets this apart from regular old serendipity proper. This scent was very strong for the first 4 hours and lessened after that for another 3 hours. I didn't mind, though, because I grew tired of it after it was fizzling.
I would definitely buy this scent again and am thinking about placing another order with Shanna in the near future because of this scent. It's a good'un, friends!

Sugar & Spice Gourmet Soy's Serendipity Marshmallows
Cold Rating8/10; very strong on cold sniff and a much welcome surprise back into the world of serendipity! Lovely! Hard to find marshmallow versus serendipity sweetness overall.
Lit Rating: 8/10; JUST FANTASTIC. I don't mind that this has less cherry while warming because it's so good, though in a perfect world, it would. Sweet, strong, sassy.
Throw Rating8/10; very strong throw, I could smell this through our pocket door and into the TV room. Melodious, not odious!
Overall Rating: 8/10; crazy 8's across the board. Needed more cherry. Serendipity should be a drink flavor. Please don't think I'm an alcoholic. Marshmallow fluff is good stuff. Very good throw. Love this company, hard to get RTS anymore. Custom orders, huzzah!


  1. I am totally at that point with serendipity right now - even the thought of it makes me want to gag! But I won't get rid of it all just yet because I know I'll end up loving it all over again like you have =) LOVE Sugar and Spice, I never have a bad tart from her! If she had more scents available for blending she might just be my #1. Also, speaking of Oscar Sunday....MY POOR LEO -_-

    1. Sounds like the same thing I went will come back from it! I am tolerating serendipity again in small doses! Totally agreed about Shannon, her stuff is simply amazing!

      POOR BB LEO :( :(

  2. I love Serendipity . . . in small doses spread far apart. =)


  3. Mmmmm! I love it but Adam thinks it smells like cat pee so I have to be sneaky about melting it. Shanna's is pretty amazing. But CFTKR has my heart when it comes to serendipity blends.

    1. He thinks all serendipity smells like cat pee?! LOL! CFTKR is the bets, though, there's no denying how good their serendipity is!
