Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 1/3/16-1/10/16

It's been a short wax week for me since I have family in town. I'm out and about more, so I don't melt as much. I do think I had a pretty successful wax week though!

Bunch Candle Co. Peppermint & Eucalyptus 
Scent Description: Invigorating blend with peppermint, patchouli, cedar wood and eucalyptus
My Thoughts: The peppermint is the strongest note in here, and that's all I could really smell for the first couple hours of melting. I love peppermint though so I don't have any complaints. I'd say around the 5-6 hour mark the peppermint died down and the other notes came out. The eucalyptus, patchouli, and cedar wood added a really nice and subtle masculine note to the entire blend. I liked this one!

Ten Digit Creations Cool Citrus Basil
Scent Description: fresh and clean aroma of sweet basil, lime, and wild mint
My Thoughts: This scent had a lot of my favorite elements in it. I love clean, citrus, and herbal scents and all together this was really nice. It smells like a fancy shampoo you get treated to at the salon. It's crisp, clean, and refreshing.

ScentSationals Starry Sky
Scent Description: Crisp evening night skies form a clean, fresh scent with a spice of myrrh.
My Thoughts: This is a nice woodsy, clean, cologne type blend. I liked this one melting at first, but it got old after awhile. I like the clean and cologne notes in here, but there is a woodsy sweetness in there that puts me off after awhile. I don't hate this, but it's not one I like to melt for too long. 

Better Homes and Gardens Salt Water Winds
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This is probably one of the strongest wax melts I own. This is one I melt after cooking onions. It will knock the onion scent right out! It's a mix to me of a salty ocean air with a strong laundry note. This maybe a bit harsh to some, but I like it. It's a powerful sucker and perfect when you really need to freshen up a room. 

Happy Sunday!
