Once upon a time, there was a universal and effervescent place where all everywhere you looked, there were warmers at every turn, scents that both relaxed and dazzled the senses.  Father Scent, both the ultimate mixologist and scholar on all things scent, decided to take a trip to Earth to sample and draw inspiration from different smells and concoctions the Earth had to offer.

Father Scent transcended to Earth, ready for an adventure, and he wasn't met with happy people and warm scents like he was used to where he lived. The people were cold, unenthusiastic and their homes smelled of nothing, or worse! Smoke, old food, or even body odor!

Poor Father Scent was befuddled and saddened.  But he knew he had to do something.  He came back home and told his fellow friends of scent, "Earth has become an unwelcoming and saddened planet, because they have no good smells to lift them up, promote good moods, good feelings, and all things happiness!  I am sending a few of my special soldiers to blend with the Earthlings and integrate scents into people's lives.

So the special soldiers came to Earth, and brought their best scents and best warmers.  Companies sprang from the inspiration and idea and touched so many lives throughout the love of scent.  Even after the special soldiers went back to their home, the love of scent continued to grow and thrive and people bonded and became friends over their love of wax and scent!

I figured a short story would be a nice way to shake things up!! This is how I feel about the world of wax! There is somewhere where all of us wax addicts get together and love all of our scents, together.  There may be no Father Scent, but we all form friendships over the wax and I love it <3

So, UFGATORBUGG has seen me write on my blog and commenting on other blogs and probably around Facebook too how I was wanting to try "Painting the Roses Red" by the Bathing Garden.  It was between that one and the Wolfsbane Bites, and Wolfsbane Bites ended up winning by a hair.  I sometimes hate scent descriptions, because I like some scents even though I may hate what's in the scent descriptions.

She generously sent me a few cubes of that, plus some other tarts that I had been wanting to try!!

Here's some pictures!!
