Swift & Supersonically Snappy Short Review #77: Rosegirls Vanilla Bean Noel/Strawberry Raspberry Guava/Marilyn

Is this the longest scent name in history? Good on me for picking a mouthful of a blend name for our last round of muffin club.
Rosegirls Vanilla Bean Noel/Strawberry Raspberry Guava/Marilyn
Cold Rating7/10
Lit Rating: 7/10
Throw Rating: 9/10
Overall Rating7.5/10; sheer insanity when it comes to the throw. Melted this super spring blend when it was 90 degrees a few weeks back and we were holed up in our bedroom with the portable air conditioner and it still managed to seep through the cracks in the door and get into the rest of the house. Bright fruit potpourri blasts in your face the second it hits the hot plate. Mild VBN aroma since the fruits are really the star here. Basically, the most intense tropical drink you can think of is what this smells like. Melted this 6 hours in the bedroom on said day, and 8 hours in the bathroom several weeks later. 2 halves are better than a whole, so cutting muffins because melting a whole one was silly on my part for several years worth of go arounds. I HATE CUTTING WAX. Ruined shirts. Dry cleaning bills (ha, yeah right, I shop at Walmart, yo). Yellow and pink, my favorite colors! Rosegirls not always being available to customers. Mini melts hesitation. Facebook guilting to order more. Tweaking blends to suit other people's tastes can be difficult if you're going at it with no frame of reference as to how these individual scents smell!


  1. That is one of the last ones I have left! And no more on the horizon! Tears. I think I need to melt this one soon.

    1. It will be a good summertime melt, I assure you! And if you need more muffins, let me know and I can hook you up!

  2. I still don't understand how you ruin clothes from handling wax......

    I couldn't remember this one so I had to look back through posts. Found out that I'd thought it was nice but very 'pretty' and not something I'd choose again. I do agree on one thing though.....I hate cutting wax too.


    1. As far as ruining clothes, it's less from cutting wax and more from spilling it all over my clothing. I have done it 3 times, each time by accident. :( When I cut my wax, sometimes crumbs get all over the place, so I have a designated cutting wax outfit now, LOL. Sounds too intense, eh?

      I don't think I'd get this one again, either, despite its strength. Quite pretty, but something you really, really have to be in the mood to melt.
