Recent Wax Reviews

Kitty's Konfections Big Top- "frosted animal crackers and marshmallows." A nice frosted vanilla cookie type scent. Moderate to light throw for about 6-7 hours. Overall grade: B. Can't repurchase.

Ava's County Cupboard Lollipop: a generic sweet fruity candy scent. Pleasant and not sickly sweet. Moderate throw for about 7-8 hours. Overall grade: B+. Probably wouldn't repurchase.

The Scented Squirrel The Upside Down- "redwood forest, moss, patchouli, sandal tree, white musk, sage and sea salt." A captivating scent description. On cold it did smell moderately fresh and herbal with touches of musk and woods. Unfortunately the throw was pretty light when melting. Overall grade: C. Probably wouldn't repurchase.

Scentsationals White Sandalwood: a musky, perfumey sandalwood type scent with a touch of exotic spices. Fairly strong to moderate throw for about 8 hours. Overall grade: A-. Might repurchase.

The Scented Squirrel Harvest Apple Cake- "brown sugar and apple crumb cake." This is a delicious smelling and realistic sweet apple bakery scent. Fairly strong throw for about 9 hours. Overall grade: A. Would repurchase.

Sniff My Tarts Adaly's Marshmallow Peeps Mandarin Coconut Cake Coconut Cream Pie. A yummy vanilla marshmallow and sweet coconut combo.  Moderate throw for about 6-7 hours. Overall grade: B+. Might repurchase.

Golden Egg Wax Sweet Lavender & Eucalypts. This was a pretty old piece of wax. I received it in a destash and it's probably at least 2 years old. I'd never heard of this brand but the notes sounded nice together. Unfortunately it had zero throw, probably due to age. I would have loved to smell it fresh. Overall grade: D. Would not repurchase.

Glitterati Plum Tart Vanilla Buttercream Crunch: this is a really yummy and unique blend. It does smell of rich, dusky baked plums sprinkles in brown sugar and folded in a warm pastry. Fairly strong throw for about 8 hours. Overall grade: A. Would repurchase.

Southbound Soap Co Strawberry White Cake. I usually love strawberry cake blends but unfortunately this one had only a vague strawberry aroma and light throw for a few hours. I've had good throw from most other Southbound scents so I think it was an older tart. Overall grade: C. Might repurchase.

  1. Hoo, I'm liking the sound of that SMT blend, give me all the mallow coconut goodness. I sniffed the Scentsationals White Sandalwood a few weeks ago, but was unsure and put it back, gonna have to go in for a re-sniff.
