Jessica's Challenge: Wax Melt Cocktail

Jessica over at The Meltdown Blog recently did a really cool blog post combining some unique scents into a wax melt "cocktail" of sorts and challenged me to do the same.

This is a really fun idea! Jessica combined a scent note that she didn't really care for with others that she liked to see if she would like how they smelled blended together so I decided to do the same.

For my cocktail I chose Blood Orange from Hayden Rowe. It is a strong scent that is a bit sharp and tart for me. I decided to see if I could sweeten and freshen it up with some other notes. To accompany it I chose Cream Soda from Live Love Wax Co and Rosemary Mint from 16 Candles. I'm calling my concoction "Blood Orange Spritzer."
As you can see, I loaded my little wax cups up with about 1/3 of each scent. 
I'm pleased with the results. When melting this smells like an orange soda although not syrupy sweet. It's just right. The rosemary mint is not super noticeable; it just helped tone the other scents down. This challenge was really enjoyable; I'm glad I tried a blend I wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

Have you ever melted multiple wax scents together? What are your favorite combinations?

  1. The scent that would have me unsure would probably be the cream soda with it by itself. Blended with other things would probably work though like this. I am glad the blend worked out for you! Thank you for participating!
