Waking up on the morning of December 22nd, 3 days before my favorite day of the entire year, I felt that all too familiar itchy and scratchy rawness in the back of my throat...
"...oh no," I thought, "I'm going to be sick on Christmas..."
...I'm fairly certain I've infected given my cold to every single person I've ever met, so, if I saw you in person this week and you're reading this now, I'm sorry in advance for giving you the plague.
Needless to say, I didn't melt ANYTHING until Thursday night, thus, the extra day in this weekend wax review.
Cranberry Woods (link takes you to the 1.3oz version) was one of the first fall scents I purchased from Bath & Body Works, and I had to get it because I had heard so many rave reviews. If you like woodsy types of scents, this candle is for you! It's a super strong mix of cranberry AND woods, yet refreshing and bright. On cold sniff, 7/10. While warming, 7.5/10. The throw is a 7.5/10, for a total of 7.5/10. Not bad for a first purchase, and I still have some left for next fall and winter!
Ollie's Soaps' Sinus Relief. DUH, why didn't I do Sinus Relief SOONER in my sickness?! This one was r-i-d-i-c-u-l-o-u-s-l-y STRONG! It really helped with my stuffy nose. In fact, it was a nice, soothing scent, with a bit of medicinal note underneath. On cold sniff, 7/10. While warming, 7/10. The throw was a 6.5/10, for a total of 7/10!
Tiffany Candles' Snickerdoodle was a sample I've been sitting on for a few months. I was feeling like a cookie scent this morning, so I popped it in. WOW, this one was very pleasant! I'm generally not a cookie type of gal, but this was really, really nice! There was a rich, buttery note mixed in with a cinnamon sugar. On cold sniff, barely anything, 4.5/10, just the faintest hint of cookie. While warming, 6.5/10. This is in the old wax blend, but it was surprisingly strong with a 6.5/10. Overall, 6/10, and I'd love to try this in the new wax blend!
Sniff My Tarts' Pink Coconut Vanilla Butter Fudge...man, oh man, this was simply amazing. Between the creaminess of the coconut, the butteriness of the fudge, and the sweetness of the pink sugar, this has got to be one of my top 10 scents of the year, it was that good. WOWZA. On cold sniff, 7.5/10. While warming, 9.5/10. It was strong, too, 9/10. Grand total is 9/10. If you get a chance to order from this company, TRY. THIS. SCENT. It's incredible how these ladies can blend fragrances together to creating something fantastic!!
Enjoy your week, everyone! :)
