Lolo Loves Scents CBV Destash

The week has been good, and has ended great!

First I want to go ahead and mention that I made a The Bathing Garden order!! Here's what I got!

Clamshells in:

Pumpkin Masquerade
Rainbow Candy Cream Soda
Sugared Pie Crust over Lavender
Wolfsbane's Bites
Frosted Vanilla Graham Cracker

4OZ scrub in Pink Sugar Layered Marshmallow

I am UNBELIEVABLY excited, got hooked on TBG from my last order, which is almost gone!! :( :( Think this may be a climbing for a top spot vendor!! Woohoo!

I follow Lauren at Lolo Loves Scents and Sunnee at Fragrance Obsessed and they write a heck of a blog!  These two ladies write beautiful blogs, full of pictures and informative information!! I don't know what I'd do without these helpful tips and sweet anecdotes!  <3

Lauren was offering a CBV destash on her blog and I was the first to e-mail her that I was interested!!

She e-mailed me the scents, and I e-mailed her, yes I want it!! I had to wait until Wednesday to pay, because Wednesday was pay day!!

So I had gotten it in last night! I was off yesterday, and my husband took the mail key.  So I was stuck at home dreaming of all the CBV scent shots waiting in my mailbox, dying to be unwrapped and opened!!

I met my husband at the door, kissed him hello, and ran off with the mail key!!

This is what I found:

All of the beautiful CBV cups in their new home!!
Sugar Kisses- Smells very sugary with a hint of fruit
Pazazzy-smells like Sparkling Cranberry Cider.  I'm going
to see how it is warm, but it's good cold.
Granny's Pie Crust- has a good mellow sweet confection
smell to it.  I'm excited about this one!
Sleigh Bells- I smell mint with that old Victorian style
Vanilla.  I can't tell if I can smell something else.
Captain Crunch Berries- Usually I hate EVERY SINGLE
cereal scent.  But this one smells like a warm cranberry
bread scent.  I will definitely report on this one! Pleasantly
surprised on cold smell!
Nut House- This is supposed to be a dupe for Pistachio Pudding
Cake.  I like it cold sniff, I just hope it's not too heavy on the

Bella Swan- I am no Twilight fan, but this smells really good!! I think
this is like a grape vanilla type scent, very light on the grape.  Maybe
a little floral in there?  It smells pretty!
Cinnamon Raisin Bread- I think I smell everything (cinnamon, raisin, and bread)
pretty evenly!  Surprisingly, since usually I can never smell the raisin.
But this smells really good! Cozy!
Carmen Miranda- This I smell peach.  Something else too, but definitely peach. Can't
Pinpoint WHATELSE.  hahaha
Stress Relief- This one smells like my husband's dandruff shampoo with a little
more mint.  Ehh....
Fair Day- I think this one is funnel cake and caramel with a tiny bit of apple.
Not a huge fan of it cold, we'll see warm
Peachy Pink Coral- This is another I was really excited about.  This smells like
a Fuzzy Navel or some sort of peach Starburst.  I love this scent.  I hope
it's as great warm!!

Leesha- This one I'm not so sure about.  It smells kinda sweet incense-y so
I'm not too sure.  We'll see...
Cinnamon Donuts- This smells like pure fresh cinnamon out of the bottle!  I don't
smell too much of a confection added, but I think that might come out
when it is warm!  Love it COLD!
Sonny and Cher- I can't decide whether or not I like this.  There is cranberry in it
BUT there is this spiciness to it, this hard spiciness.  Not sure, not sure
Feathers Everywhere- This is the nicest fresh scent I've found.  It's not industrial,
it doesn't have that strong cleaner scent.  If anyone's smelled a down blanket with the feathers,
this is what that reminds me of.  It's fresh but airy.
Viva La Juicy- This is a very perfumey scent, I can't wait to see how this does in the warmer.
Three Ring Circus- I can kinda smell peanuts, not sure what else.  Maybe even
cotton candy!

Then Lauren was really sweet and included a few (and I loosely use this term "few) freebies for my birthday

Lasting Scent Pink Sands, Sugar and Spice Gourmet Pistachio
Coconut Fluff, and Pink Coconut Butter Fudge
Hearts in Butterfly Lane Serendipity and a mini loaf in Butterfly Lane
Serendipity/Pina Colada
Sniff My Tarts Mystery Chunks, Pink Serendipity, Ice Cream Scoop
Serendipity Smoothie, and Circus Concession
Here are the randoms: Bella's Sweet Serendipity Sugar, Rosegirl's
Ooey Gooey Baked ZB, Ten Digit Creations Pistachio Coconut
Fluff, Pics Petals & Scents Very Berry ZB, and Pink Serendipity from
Sweet Fixations

This was SUCH an awesome destash, even aside from the "Birthday" wax, I love the CBV and the extras!! <3 Lauren is definitely an awesome person to buy a destash from! Thank you, Lauren, so much!!  Can't wait!!


  1. I know for a fact that both Lauren and I think you are amazingly sweet and love your blog!
    Thank you for the mention and the kind words, you made my day.

    What a great destash! And her bday gift was so very sweet --there were a couple of vendors in there that I'm dying to try.

    Hope you're having a great weekend Ashley! :)

    1. I think the world of you both! Not just for wax, but it amazes me how there are still kind and wonderful people in the world.

      And I totally mean it, you both have amazing blogs!! I love how through the love of wax, we can all form friendships, even though we are on opposite ends of the country!

      What vendors are you thinking about trying?? If I have any, I'd be happy to send you some!! :D

      Hope you have a fantastic weekend Sunnee! Talk to you soon!

  2. Yay, glad everything came unscathed!! And again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! :)

    I hope you have better luck with these CBV SS than I did, they smell fantastic, but just wouldn't melt for me. They are in a much better home now!

    Also, hopefully the extras are good for you, too! I tried to pick stuff I thought you'd like. Enjoy them, friend! :D

    1. Yes, everything came great and perfect and I'm so grateful, thank you so much!!

      I tried Cinnamon Donuts and I swear, it smells JUST like fresh grated cinnamon with a yummy confection note. Not sugared cinnamon, but straight up cinnamon. It's delicious!! I've had pretty good luck with CBV! If you have another destash, let me know!! Aside from the extras, I was very happy with the destash part as well!!

      I so so SOOOO appreciate the attention of scents, I HAD to melt the Pistachio Coconut Fluff from TDC RIGHT AWAY!! It was FANTASTIC!! I am trying to get Janet from HHS to get Pistachio Coconut Fluff so I can buy 2 bags of brittle and be done bugging people about it. Hahahaha!

      Thank you again!! <3
