Recent Wax Reviews
Kitty's Konfections My Father The Inventor Of Toaster Strudel- strawberry jam, pie crust, cream cheese frosting. This was a very yummy smelling scent. Sweet strawberry and cream cheese frosting notes were prominent. Moderate throw for about 6-8 hours. Overall grade: B+. Cannot repurchase.
Wonderberry Wax Melted Marshmallow Cookie: This was an older tart I had; I'm trying to melt through some of my older tarts that I just have small quantities of. This one had a light throw; vague vanilla cookie scent. Nothing special in it's current state. Changed it out after 4 hours or so. Overall grade: D. Would not repurchase.
Rosegirls Peach Raspberry Coconut Vanilla Crunch Donuts: another older tart. I was pleasantly surprised this one had quite a bit of scent left. I could smell each of the fruity notes as well as a sweet bakery note. Moderate throw for a few hours and light thereafter. Overall grade: B. Would repurchase.
