Armadilla Wax Works. Another new company, too! WOOT! I have burned the Cool Water votive, but not the San Dune one. They both smell really great on cold sniff and Cool Water has a medium throw. I will do an individual review of Sand Dune if y'all want!
Blue Dipper Wax Works based out of Seattle WA (nifty box, huh?). I have used one outside, but forgot it was there, so it extinguished. Going to use one of these this week when we have some work done on our house and the doors are constantly opened. PS: Does anyone know where to get some tealight holders besides Yankee Candle? Think cheap! ;)
Earth Meets Water! And that lid! Gorgeous! This candle is in a mason jar (swoon) and is a peachy orange colored wax, scented in Toucan Jungle, a fruity/tropical explosion. I have melted this candle 3 times. The first time, the wick collapsed in on itself. I thought Josh blew it out since we left the kitchen for a while, but no, it collapsed in on itself...like, curled over, fetal position and all. I was perplexed...I've never seen a wick do that before! No fans were on and no windows were opened. The second time, I burned around the area of the wick to create a bit of space to get it standing back up. While the burn lasted an hour, eventually, the flame got so low, it burned out. Bummed, but not yet sold, I melted it the next day and it worked just fine, though a bit of tunneling has started. I am determined to give this candle my all! Needless to say, I haven't gotten a whole heck of a lot of output from this candle, so I will report back if anything changes. I love this company's labels and charms and they have tonnnnnnnnns of beachy stuff and wax melts, too! I am planning an order soon!
Wood and Wax Handcrafted Goods candle? UGH, I serious fell in love with this candle at first sight based on the label alone, The, then I opened the lid and saw it was a wood wick candle? END OF STORY. Love wood wicks! On top of this, ocean and sea salt scents are my jam. This candle smells great! It's one that builds in strength the longer it has been lit, but it's a nice and pleasant medium in our bedroom. I had a helluva time with the wick the first burn, but this issue has since been corrected and I am in love with this scent. Yay!
Though there were a few individual problems, I LOVED this box. It was so full of great scents and an awesome variety of wax! I fall more and more in love with this company and candles again each time I get this box and melt my goods. Until next time!
