Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 4/10/16-4/17/16

This was unfortunately a dud week for wax. I was pretty disappointed in two of these I tried this week. One of the waxes I tried was great and another was alright, but I'll explain that later. I'm hoping for a better wax week this next week!

Ten Digit Creations Amarige
Scent Description: top notes of peach, plum, orange, mandarin, with the sweetness of rose wood and neroli. Middle floral notes of mimosa, neroli, tuberose, gardenia and acacia. Base notes of musk, sandalwood, vanilla, amber, tonka bean and cedar
My Thoughts: This a dupe the popular 90's Givenchy perfume.This perfume is so nostalgic to me. I remember teachers and other "grown ups" when I was younger wearing this and I loved how elegant the scent was. This dupe is spot on. It's a very aromatic, perfumey, and sophisticated scent. I definitely get a strong white floral note paired with muskiness and citrus. It's such a beautifully complex scent. It's really great, but definitely not for people who are sensitive to perfume smells. It's strong, but amazing to me!
Scent Throw: 5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations 

Wilma's Lavender Leaves
Scent Description: Fresh lavender together with notes of sage, bergamot, rose and teas
My Thoughts: I had high hopes for this one because it had such an interesting scent description. I love lavender and that paired with the other herbal notes and rose sounded amazing. This just smelled like straight up lavender to me. I could not pick up any of the other elements which was very disappointing. Also, this had almost a non-existant throw. I could hardly smell it in my small bedroom.

Wilma's Lavender Cucumber
Scent Description: Green cucumber and soothing sage blends with wild lavender.
My Thoughts: I love lavender blends, so I try to try as many as I can. I have never seen a lavender cucumber blend before, so I was excited about this one. This smells exactly like a blend of lavender and cucumber. You get that herbal fragrant soothing lavender scent paired with that fresh, watery, and sweet cucumber. It's really the perfect blend of fresh and soothing. I liked this blend, however, like the previous one it didn't have a strong throw. It smelled strong when I was 2-3 ft away from it, but any further I could hardly detect it. 
Scent Throw: 1.5/5

Ten Digit Creations Alcatraz
Scent Description: jasmine, honeysuckle, vetiver
My Thoughts: This is a dupe to some Lush fragrance, but I've never tried it so I can't compare. This is a straight white floral scent. I also swear I'm picking up some coconut in there. I love white florals because they're very fresh, clean, and tropical smelling. This is great, but I'm not so sure I like it as a home fragrance. This smells more like something I'd want as a hair product or soap product which makes sense because it's a dupe from Lush. It's just missing something for me as home fragrance. I think it needs some citrus note in it to liven and freshen it up for me to like it more. This did have a strong throw though.
