  1. Lately I've been really into blending apple scents. I did Shayz Country Apple BBW dup w/ Island Fresh gain and it was LOVELY. My favorite that I've done is Plumeria w/ Wild Cherry, but its more of a summer scent. And then I did a mix of HHS scent 'Toasted Marshmallow' and 'Cinnamon Caramel Latte' this past weekend and it perfect for the crappy weather. I'm always looking for new blending ideas as well!

  2. Being pretty new to the world of wax I've only made one custom order (just ordered today!) from Sugar and Spice. I ordered Vanilla Bean with Hazelnut Coffee. I like coffee scents but only if they are sweet and nutty (like myself... haha!)

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway, Ashley ♥

    1. Yummm!! I'm always looking for the perfect coffee scent!! Not too sweet but similar to a French Vanilla Coffee! I can't wait to hear how your blend turns out!!

      Thank you for participating in the giveaway!

    2. I received my custom order and it's smells devine !!! In the comments to Shanna I told her to use either VBNoel or vanilla bean... which ever one she thought would be yummier :) She used the VBNoel with the Hazelnut Coffee.

      I know she says her tarts don't need to be cured but I've found they are much better after waiting a couple weeks! The very first one I melted from her I was completely disappointed (it hadn't cured at all). There was no throw at all. So now I'm letting all my tarts wait at least two weeks to cure - no matter who the vendor is :)

      What do you think about melting SS tarts immediately? Have you noticed the weak throw?

    3. I don't think I've actually tried a S&S tart right away. I've been very good to make sure all of my tarts (except a few from a couple other companies) cure! I've let all of S&S's cure, and most of all of them have been super strong after a few weeks!!

      What did you think cold-smell of your French Vanilla Coffee?? :D I'm so curious! :D Did you get any of her RTS melts during her VCMA sale?

    4. Hi Ashley :)
      Yesss! I was able to get some RTS during the VCMA. I think the sale had been going for close to an hour when I saw it, but I was able to get a dozen different melts.
      The cold sniff on my VBNoel Hazelnut Coffee is wonderful!!!! I can't wait to melt it :)
      How about yourself... did you get any of the RTS from the VCMA sale?

    5. That's awesome!! Which ones did you score?? I know I tried Pistachio Coconut Fluff for the first time from her, and it was amazing! Started my quest!

      I'm so glad your VBN Hazelnut Coffee turned out well, atleast cold!! Can't wait to hear how it turns out warm!

      No :( I Had to work the day she had her sale, plus it's been rent-week, which is why I had to wait so long to make my TBG order! But I hope to make a custom order soon!! I have some scents on my list!! :D

  3. I enjoy blending and so far i have really enjoyed blending the following from HHS: granmas toasted pumpkin crunch with granmas funnel cake, granmas toasted caramel with amish cinnamon bread, but my fave so far is vanilla delicious with amazing bakery. I like fp pink peppermint with TBG spearmint & peppermint, and mixing marshmallow scents with apple scents. :-) I hope you got some goodies from TBG today!

    1. Oh wow Dana that sounds amazing!! I've had my cheesecake doubts, but I'm sure if a vendor can do cheesecake justice, it'd be S&S!
      And I STILL Need to order somewhere that offers Twinkies!! I'm going to be making a HHS order soon!

  8. Greetings!! I am pretty new to the wax world so I only purchased my first wax purchase a month ago. I didn't purchase anything custom since I don't really know what I like. Upon receiving my order, I really like fruit loops, serendipity and vanilla/birthday cake so I would recommend those blends. Thank you for hosting the giveaway! By the way, my name is Charmaine or CK and email is chkimlien@gmail.com.
