Recent Wax Reviews
Hayden Rowe Rocket Pop: a sweet summer scent. Definitely reminds me of cherry and blue raspberry slushees, yum! Fairly strong throw for about 8 hours. Overall grade: A. Would repurchase.
Kitty's Konfections Trina's Twist- fruit loops & cheesecake. A great fruity cereal blend with an extra sweet cream cheese frosting note. Moderate throw for about 6-7 hours. Overall grade: B+. Cannot repurchase.
The Scented Squirrel Kalidescope Eyes- vanilla sandalwood, patchouli and blood orange. Sometimes blood orange and patchouli can be to strong for me but I like this blend a lot. All the notes are present but the vanilla sandalwood really mellows it out. Fairly strong throw for about 10 hours. Overall grade: A. Would repurchase.
Starry Skies Tea & Cakes- a traditional tea and cakes blend; rich and delicious. Moderate throw for about 6-7 hours. Overall grade: B+. Would repurchase.
The Scented Squirrel Grandma Shreve's Blackberry Cobbler- a yummy and realistic blackberry bakery blend. Moderate throw for about 6 hours. Overall grade: B. Might repurchase.
Rainbow Melts Cookie Heaven- gourmet sugar cookies, Danish butter cookies and vanilla butter fudge. This is one of the most rich and complex vanilla scents I've smelled. All the different vanillas really give it extra pizazz. So yummy. Fairly strong to moderate throw for about 8 hours. Overall grade: A. Would repurchase.
The Scented Squirrel Morning Macaroon: lightly sweet macaroon cookies and latte. A yummy smelling blend for sure. Moderate to light throw for about 6-7 hours. Overall grade: B. Might repurchase.
Handmade Prim Cinnamon Berry Hotcakes- cinnamon bakery and blueberry notes on cold sniff. I don't know if it's because this was an older tart or the warmer weather, but this had very little throw. Overall grade: D. Wouldn't repurchase.
Cider Lane Pumpkin Crunch Cake: smells delicious on cold; both the cider and pumpkin notes were present. Again I think the hot weather affected the throw on this one. Moderate to light throw for about 6-7 hours. Overall grade: B. Would try again.
DW Home Vanilla Bean Woodwick candle- smelled amazing on cold, a rich and delicious vanilla, not ordinary or artificial at all. Somewhat lighter throw when lit, but it still provided pleasant vanilla whiffs. Can't wait to try it again in the fall. It burned well, not a loud crackling sound, but had an even wax pool and strong flame. Overall grade: B. Would repurchase.
