Week In Review #2


So I believe this post is a little overdue, but I haven't been melting much these past couple of weeks. I've been so busy working and packing (T minus 2 weeks until the BIG move <3), that melting has kinda become an afterthought *gasp*. I really need to make a dent in my stash though, so I'll be picking up the pace for sure! Here is what I've melted since my last "Week in Review".

Kim's Tarts
Faerie Dust - Very light powdery/fruity tart. It had the potential to be nice if it wasn't so darned light.

Shayz Scentz
Pure Seduction - Very nice Dupe (red plum scent). This one started out strong but didn't last very long . . . after the first tea light I noticed a significant change in the throw. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though since her tarts are smaller than most. This is also a plus if you get bored of your tarts often and don't like saving melted tarts . . . this one is quick and noncommittal.

Haley's Heavenly Scents
Pink Lemonade - STRONG! I used a whole scallop in my bedroom and that was a mistake. I will be cutting these babies in halves or thirds from now on! Very nice sweet/tart lemonade scent <3.

Olde Primitive Treasures
Sweet Iced Tea - Yum, more perfumy than herbal but I REALLY liked this one. It is on the lighter side so I would only recommend this one for bedrooms/bathrooms/other small rooms.
Starfruit & Mango - Strong and Lasts! This one is a trooper for sure. It smells like tropical candy to me.

That's all for now! I'm long overdue on my haul posts for Kim's Tarts, Eagle Rock Candle Co., Buggytown and Olde Primitive Treasures! I'll make sure to update those ASAP! <3.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Yours Truly,
The Waxinista

Week in Review #1

Week In Review #1

NOTE: Since this is the 1st update of it's kind, this is going to cover the melts over 2 weeks ^_^. After today though I'll post these every Saturday reporting my melts of the week <3.

Kim's Tarts
Peeps - A very soft/sweet marshmallow scent. The throw was OK for a bedroom, I imagine it would have trouble in a larger room!
Butt Naked - Lovely and strong melon/tropical scent! I will be reordering this one!
Dirty Dancing - To me this smelled like cologne and cigarette smoke. I could only stand this one for a few minutes before I quickly gave up on it =(.

Haley's Heavenly Scents
Pink Sands - This had a sort of sharp "green" note on the cold scent that I wasn't sure about, but when this baby was warmed it was AH-mazing! I love this and I'm so glad I have it in a 6 pk! It's not an exact dupe for Yankee but it's very close.
Dream Angels - LOVELY! I adore this scent. It smells just like the VS perfume and has a great throw!

Ocean Water - This one was a bit strong for me, but a wonderful fresh scent nonetheless with great throwing power.
Beach Wood - I liked this scent, it had a nice throw and it was masculine . . . but to me it had a slight "sour" note in it that I wasn't too fond of.
Vanilla Caramel - I'm disappointed I only bought 3 of these . . . the throw is a bit light but the scent is WONDERFUL. Smells like super sweet caramel squares <3. If I get back to Yankee before the SAS is over I would like to score some more of these for sure!
Pink Dragon Fruit: OMG! I am going to have to go back to yankee and hoard this baby! I ADORE this scent!!! It's strong, fruity and oh so perfect in every way! Way to go Yankee!

Front Porch
Funnel Cake: A very sweet bakery scent. I really enjoyed this one. It did have a light throw though so it's great for a bedroom.
