Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 3/27/16-4/3/16

Here are the new waxes I melted this week.

Colonial Candle Spring Awakening
Scent Description: Rejuvenate the energy of spring with a mixture of fresh apple, grapefruit, and sun dried cotton.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this scent. I definitely get a strong green apple note from this which reminds a lot of the Suave Juicy Green Apple shampoo they've had for ages. That green apple note to my nose is paired with a blend of some type of  light floral, greenery, and cotton notes. This is a really nice blend. It's very fresh and green. My only complaint is I wish it had a stronger throw. 
Scent Throw: 3/5
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle

Better Homes & Gardens By The Pool (Splash + Coconut)
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This is another one of those duo packs you melt together. The "Splash" side smells like a a blend of salty ocean water, a light floral, and pineapple. The "Coconut" side smells like Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen, pretty much a blend of coconut and pineapple. These melted together smell exactly like how you smell after a day at the pool. You know when your skin smells like a mixture of sunscreen and chlorine? It's a pretty artificial smell, but it's nostalgic to me as it reminds me of the summers I used to live in the pool as a kid. I did tire of it after a few hours because those pineapple notes can get too sweet, but it's definitely a scent I would melt again. Not a favorite, but I like it enough. 
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

ScentSationals Orchid Paradise
Scent Description: I hope heaven is like this
My Thoughts: Really ScentSationals? What kind of scent description is that? This is one of those scents that fooled me. On cold sniff, I got a fresh and crisp floral with maybe some sweet watery notes, when melted this overpowering powdery note came out. It smelled like scented baby powder. I really don't like powdery florals. I know violets are like that. I guess orchids are too? This one to me smelled really different on cold than when melted. It tricked me! I sure hope heaven doesn't smell like this. 
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Colonial Candle Harbor Mist
Scent Description: Treasure the clean scent of gentle florals, musk, and a touch of sweet pear.
My Thoughts: This is my kind of scent. This an amazing blend of ocean air, soft floral, slight fruity note, and hint of perfume. It really does match the description. I love fresh and clean scents like this with some added elements to make it special. My beef? This had a very light throw. It was very disappointing because it smells so great in the package. Bummer.
Scent Throw: 1.5/5
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle
