Lightning Round Reviews #28: Lake Providence Lodge Round-Up (P-Z)!

I'm back with part 2 of my Lake Providence Lodge wax melts round-up! Come and take a look!
Peppermint ~ Crisp, refreshing and strong! A true peppermint. 
Lake Providence Lodge's Peppermint
Cold Rating10/10
Lit Rating: 10/10
Throw Rating10/10
Overall Rating10/10; insane throw. Perfect and crisp, just like the essential oil. Must be a fan of true peppermint scents as this is the only scent to be had. Incredible nighttime melt. Smells SO FREAKING GOOD. Cut this baby in half for longevity. Lasts many, many hours. Clean, but not astringent in a cleaner way. Brilliant peppermint scent!!!
Pistachio Punch ~ A fruity and sweet blend of pistachios, ripe red cherries, juicy oranges and fresh pineapple. 
Lake Providence Lodge's Pistachio Punch
Cold Rating7/10
Lit Rating: 7/10
Throw Rating7/10
Overall Rating7/10; super fruity melody! Pineapple and pistachio go good together. Melted this in the bathroom and it lasted about 5-6 hours. Lingered even after it was gone in the back bedroom. You need to love tropical scents as well as pistachio. Almost wonder how this would be with serendipity!
Pomegranate Cider ~ Our Pomegranate warmed up a bit with fresh pressed apples and a little spice.
Lake Providence Lodge's Pomegranate Cider
Cold Rating8/10
Lit Rating: 8.5/10
Throw Rating8/10
Overall Rating8/10; underrated spicy fruit scent. Not like apple at all, more dark and mysterious. Spicy, but not too terribly spicy as it is muted slightly by the pomegranate. Also, an underrated fruit to begin with. Lasted 6 hours in the bedroom with strong throw.
Pumpkin Butter ~ Made from scratch apple butter blended with pumpkin spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and warm vanilla.
Lake Providence Lodge's Pumpkin Butter
Cold Rating6/10
Lit Rating6/10
Throw Rating6/10
Overall Rating7.5/10; much lighter on the spices than I had anticipated, I think they are relegated to a background note here since the apple butter and pumpkin are the starts. Sort of buttery, even though it's not a butter scent? Fruity, but also a bit more depth to it. Not  my favorite melt. Lasted 4 hours before I pulled it.
Rainbow Sherbet ~ This smells just like the sherbet mom served us that came out of the square ice cream box. Raspberry, lemon, lime and orange blended with a touch of our Strawberry makes this the perfect fruity sherbet.
Lake Providence Lodge's Rainbow Sherbet
Cold Rating7/10
Lit Rating: 7/10
Throw Rating7/10
Overall Rating7/10; crazy accurate to the frozen treat. Strong, fruity, in your face scent. Raspberry and citrus to the max. Great for a summers day! Lasted 7 hours in the bedroom. I should have cut this one in half because it would have been a good "whole house" scent if I had distributed it between 2 warmers. Liked this, but not a repurchase.
Rhubarb ~ Crisp and tart. This is a slightly sweet, but earthy scent. Rhubarb, freshly picked from the garden. 
Lake Providence Lodge's Rhubarb
Cold Rating7/10
Lit Rating: 7.5/10
Throw Rating7/10
Overall Rating7/10; being the only late 20-something who likes rhubarb, I can attest it is truly the most underrated vegetable/fruit out there. Mix this with sugar and cinnamon in a pie? OOhhhhh baby! So good. It's an acquired taste, so lots of people probably won't like this scent because, like figs, this is a sweet-fruity scent, but is earthy, too. I like this one. It's got a medium-high throw for the bedroom. Could have used some spice, for my taste.
Sparkling Lemonade ~ Ice cold lemonade with a touch of fizzy citrus soda added.
Lake Providence Lodge's Sparkling Lemonade
Cold Rating7.5/10
Lit Rating: 7.5/10
Throw Rating7.5/10
Overall Rating7.5/10; very sparkly, don't believe me? Smell it for yourself. It's insanely bubbly. Also, the lemon note is great, not astringent or cleaner-y like others. Our house smelled excellent for the duration of this melt, but this scent did get a little tedious. Lasted 6 hours. Liked this, but not a repurchase.
Strawberry ~ Smells like a big bowl of ripe strawberries that have been sliced and sugared. Very fresh and fruity!
Lake Providence Lodge's Strawberry
Cold Rating8/10
Lit Rating: 8.5/10
Throw Rating8/10
Overall Rating8/10; surprisingly wonderful! Sweet, fruity, just a teensy weensy bit candied. I loved this scent!! Melted this in the bathroom and it made the house smell excellent. I wish I had another one of these and a toasted marshmallow to melt these together. Lasted 8.5 hours.
Summer Fruit Salad ~ Sugar sprinkled oranges, grapefruit, strawberries, melon, peaches and kiwi.
Lake Providence Lodge's Summer Fruit Salad
Cold Rating8/10
Lit Rating: 8/10
Throw Rating: 8/10
Overall Rating8/10; another amazing fruit scent! This is a melange of fruits to the point where you can see them in your head as you're melting this. So strong. In your face with scent. Melony. Not enough kiwi scents in wax! Lasted 6 hours. Liked this, but not a repurchase.
The Cabin ~ A wonderful scent of cozy and warm spices including allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Like Fall at the Lodge curled up under a quilt by the stone fireplace.
Lake Providence Lodge's The Cabin
Cold Rating8/10
Lit Rating: 8.5/10
Throw Rating8/10
Overall Rating8/10; as you'll notice, most of the LPL wax tarts have high reviews. This is not a coincidence because they are such a consistently outrageously excellent vendor. The Cabin is probably my second favorite spicy scent from LPL: appley, spicy, all it needs is a cup of cocoa and some snowflakes! Awesome throw, smells great, repurchase for sure.
Toasted Vanilla Bean ~ Fresh vanilla beans warmed with toasted marshmallow and caramel.
Lake Providence Lodge's Toasted Vanilla Bean
Cold Rating7.5/10
Lit Rating: 7.5/10
Throw Rating7.5/10
Overall Rating7.5/10; a great toasted vanilla bean scent! Creamy, rich, sweet, only slightly toasted to me. The bedroom smelled really nice melting this. Nothing I should have cut in half. Decent medium-strong throw.

I have some other LPL tarts yet to melt, so I will review those as I finish them! Thanks for reading!

  1. Great selection of scents! I can't wait to melt my peppermint. I had the PumpkinButter but mine didn't throw well. It sounds like their strawberry is nice.
