Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 2/28/16-3/6/16

This was a near perfect week of wax. I think it would be rare for me to have a perfect week. When trying new things you're bound to come across something that isn't your favorite. Plus, with wax there are many variables, something may smell great in the package, but once you melt it could not have much throw. I hope I'll have a perfect wax week though, I'm just not sure that will happen!
ScentSationals Himalayan Pink Salt
Scent Description: An invigorating blend of eucalyptus and jasmine.
My Thoughts: This is a definite spa/clean scent, but unlike any others I have. I'm not really sure how to describe it. I'd say this a blend of a salty air note and floral. I'm not sure I really smell jasmine in this though. It's something sweet, but very fresh at the same time. I have no idea! It smells amazing to me though. I would say this would smell like a nice soap they'd have at a fancy beach resort. That is not descriptive, but that's where my mind takes me to when I smell it. 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Better Homes & Gardens Apple Blossom Freesia
Scent Description: Breezy apple blossom and ethereal freesia greens intermingle with green pear and ripe raspberry touched by sugared currant and sweet apricot.
My Thoughts: This is a very clean fruity floral that is very reminiscent of many body washes and shampoos. It's a very fresh and clean scent with a fruity floral twist. I really like this one, but I do not have much else to say about it other than I love it. If you like fruity floral bath and body products you'll most likely like this one too.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Candles by Victoria White Nectarine & Pink Coral
Scent Description: The luscious fruitiness of sweet peach, pineapple chunks and orange slices blended with enchanting floral notes of honeysuckle, rose and jasmine on a drydown of soft, soothing musk.
My Thoughts: What I love about this scent is how natural it is for a nectarine scent. Peach, nectarine, mango, and some other fruit scents in wax can go artificial and sickly. This one is perfect. It's a very fresh with a  predominant nectarine note blended out with some light floral. This is definitely a feminine scent, but it's not a teen bubblegum scent nor is it an old lady powdery frilly scent. It's just a straight up nice fruit with floral blend. The word I'd use to best describe this scent is lovely. 
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Candles by Victoria

ScentSationals Porch Swing Breeze
Scent Description: A calming scent of grass blowing in the wind with a hint of floral.
My Thoughts: The scent description on this is perfect. This is a perfect three way blend of fresh air, green grass, and floral. It's really the perfect spring day scent. I love this scent except that I could barely smell it when melting. This had a very weak throw which was so disappointing considering how much I like the scent. 
Scent Throw: 1/5
Where To Buy: ScentSationals

Ten Digit Creations Cherry Almond
Scent Description: aroma of nutty almond and sweet ripe cherries
My Thoughts: No, this isn't a typical scent category for me, but I love this scent for nostalgic reasons. This smells just like the Jergens original lotion and hand wash scent. I remember they always used the Jergens hand wash on airplanes. When I was little and bored on the airplane, I basically went to the bathroom just so I could wash my hands and smell the soap. I loved the scent so much. It actually wasn't until years later I learned that the scent was cherry almond and it was Jergens. Despite this scent having foodie ingredients, it's actually a very clean and fresh scent. It's a perfect 50/50 on cherry and almond. I love this scent and brings back old travel memories!
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
