Weekly Wax Wrap-Up: 12/20/15-1/3/16

I didn't do a wax post last week because of my Top 25 of 2015 posts going on. This post is accumulation of 2 weeks worth of wax. That beings said, it's a small list because during Christmas I did end up melting a lot of wax I have already reviewed. I only review wax I haven't reviewed before, so be sure to click the tag on this post "weekly wax wrap up" to see all of my other reviews!

Yankee Candle Ocean Star
Scent Description: Soothing and fresh . . the scent of peaceful, sun-kissed waters laced with aloe, citrus, and lotus blossom.
My Thoughts: On a previous post I said I was giving up on Yankee. I had melted a handful and they just smelled so harsh and chemically I was really put off by them. Well, Ocean Star came in and changed my mind. This scent was really nice. It has a really soothing water scent with a touch of floral. There was nothing harsh or artificial about this smell at all. This is really a perfect refreshing and clean scent that I think would be universally appealing. I loved it. Yankee revived themselves with this one for me. 

Ten Digit Creations Orange Blossom
Scent Description: uplifting aroma of sweet orange blossoms
My Thoughts: Orange Blossom smells very fresh and sweet to me. Sweet in the floral and fresh sense, not sugary. I like floral sweet smells depending on the floral. I loved this scent. I'm SO SO SO over Christmas smells by Dec. 26th, I want something fresh and uplifting. This is exactly what I needed. It's clean, crisp, and sweet. I approve.

Bunch Candle Co. Lavender
Scent Description: An enchanting meadow fringed with springs of lavender
My Thoughts: Lavender can go so many ways. My favorite lavender is the pure herbal smelling lavender. This is was exactly that. It's straight up lavender. It's soothing and clean. I loved this scent too. We're on a roll here.....

ScentSationals Ocean Spray
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: The roll stops here. This is nasty. There is nothing ocean spray about this. This smells like cheap Dollar Tree cologne. It's nasty, harsh, and gross.  I was expecting a sea salt and airy scent, nope. 

Ten Digit Creations Sage and Sea Salt
Scent Description: sage, sea salt, and driftwood
My Thoughts: This one is hard to describe, but I adore it. It smells like a nice hotel. You know hotel smell? The best way I can describe it has a very fresh herbal, airy, and laundry scent going on. It's not harsh or chemically, but fresh and spa-like. This one is a definite winner for me!

Happy Sunday!
