I wanted to jot down what I've been melting. For years, even though I am turning 21 in less than two weeks, I never really realized what exactly a blog was. I realize that means I'm not good at keeping up on my generation's need for furthering technology. I still own a flip phone that is prepaid from StraightTalk. Everyone else, even people who are on welfare and/or are close to broke seem to have iPhones, Androids, and more phones that I can't even remember. I like to believe, that I am an old-soul. :)
The point is to my spiel, is even though I have just learned about WHAT a blog is, and how to write one, two months ago, that I love to have a hard copy to be able to reference and look back on about what tarts I liked. Its like memoralizing what you've melted, embedding your memory in a cyber journal. You can tell I am really enjoying it :)
To the actual tarts:
Aunt Nena's Sage and Pomegranate: I have this one melting right now. At first when it was starting to melt, I would get whiffs of a nice perfumey scent.... light pomegranate. I don't smell any sage. I am not a huge herbal person, but I don't smell any sage in this or any herbal smell. I actually would reorder this scent!! I like it! I just wish it were more consistent with the good strong throw, rather than in and out.
Bellas Candles and Tarts Cotton Candy Sweet Bread: This is such a great scent!! The sweetness of cotton candy and the bread scent. The actual tart was a piece of bark. I cut the bark in half because I got the one piece of bark in a destash and I really really like it. Wanted to make it last. Even with half of the piece, it was nice and strong! My husband turned it off, because it was off by the time I woke up this morning, so I don't think he likes it. Oh well, its OK. I WILL be ordering a few bags during Bella's Bark Sale!! Should be here in September!! Check it out!
Front Porch Candle Company Snuggling Under The Stars: I had bought a sampler pack from Front Porch Candle Company for my MIL "Romantic Evening" and I got to sniff everything when they got to her house. I liked Snuggling Under The Stars, Cozy Fall Nights, and Twilight In the Woods. Based on the description of SUTS, I was surprised that I liked it. The description is "Keep cozy and snuggly with this wonderful complex blend of Mandarin Balm,
Tangelo, Eucalyptus, Jungle Moss, Patchouli Leaf, Sandal Tree, Red Wood Forest,
Amber Glow, Musk, Vanilla, Cotton Candy, Sugar, and Musk." Alot of scents (herbal) that I just don't like. But yet, I liked it on cold sniff. I melted it today. And it smelled so WEIRD! And GROSS! I had to take it off before it finished melting completely. Despite cold sniff, if you don't like smells like musk, patchouli, amber... get it in a individual or don't get it at all.
HHS Zucchini Bread (Spicy Version): Cold sniff, I thought it was going to be like Slatkin's Pumpkin Patch without the pumpkin. It smelled like fall. I have some friends who have also smelled this and, being the impressionable sniffer that I am, they said it smelled like burnt Doritos. When I smelled it cold again, it smelled like burnt Doritos. So I melted half of it, and it smelled just really weird. Funny-like. It wasn't even already melted before I had to freeze it and chunk it. That is also going to the MIL birthday destash.
Lasting Scent Candles White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie: I absolutely LOVE this one! This is my very first LSC tart EVVVVERRRRR!!!!! :D And I love it. I used half of this one with a warm knife trick (makes it very easy to cut into harder wax and doesn't make a mess!! DISCLAIMER: I did not come up this this, I have friends from an online group that came up with it. The credit goes to them! :)) It was nice and strong and sweet without being too sweet. Very nice :)
Shayz Scentz Almond Cake: I just started melting this one, and I like it. Its very cakey, not heavy on the almond, which I like. And there's no frosting notes. I like very few, if any, frosting scents. Thats what alot of "Happy Birthday's" and other cake scents. NO FROSTING FOR ME!! lol This is a great scent for people who like bakery and people like me who are picky but who still like a few bakery ones!! :)
Sniff My Tarts Blackberry: A month or two ago, I got a random box from Sniff My Tarts (because I've heard lots of people talking about them) and I'm so glad I did. If you have read a few posts back, I LOVED Black Cherry Bomb. One little bitty tart barely melted YET had more throw than some tarts that were fully melted!! I was SUPER impressed. I like to pick one from each of my crates (another post on that later) in a pattern. That day's turn was SMT. I sniffed through them, and decided on Blackberry. Another winner!! Another reorder!! Amazing and strong and nice!!
Thats all I can remember off-hand. Hope I can help you guys order from this!! Never hurts to look at reviews!!
Thanks!! If there's scents from a certain vendor that would be good that you liked from one of these vendors, let me know!! I love trying new scents! Thanks!
