Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 4/3/16-4/10/16

This post was meant for Sunday, but since that was my blog birthday I pushed it back to today. I had a fairly good wax week. I didn't have any waxes I detested, so that's a start! There are many weeks where I have one I really can't stand. This week not everything was a favorite, but nothing was a dud.
Colonial Candle French Lavender
Scent Description: Whisk away with this soft and soothing lavender fragrance. Top: Fresh Green - Middle: Lavender - Bottom: Musk, Woody
My Thoughts: This isn't my favorite type of lavender scent, as I prefer a more herbal take, but I still like this one. It does have some of those herbal notes, but it has softness to it and I think touch of powderiness that I believe comes from the bottom musky and woody notes. I'm not usually into powdery scents, but this one works. It's a nice balance of soft and soothing. 
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle

Mainstays Darkest Sandalwood
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This is a very masculine scent, not in the sense that it smells like cologne, but it's very rich and deep. This smells like pure wood blended with leather and hint of bergamot.  I'm not usually into woodsy scents aa they tend to have a sweetness to them I find unpleasant. This one is just so dark, rich, and complex I'm not really getting any of that. The problem with this one is throw was poor.
Scent Throw: 2/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Wilma Victorian Cleaning
Scent Description: Our own blend of clean cotton linens and lemongrass with a slightly green note.
My Thoughts: The main note I'm getting from this lemongrass with a hint of laundry scent in the background to balance it out. This is a pure lemongrass scent too. It has that amazing herbal aromatherapy-like quality. I liked this blend. It's a very crisp and refreshing scent.
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Wilma's Shop

Colonial Candle Rainshowers
Scent Description: Capturing that moment when the rain first falls, carrying hints of ozone, clary sage and oakmoss, saturating the ground and cleansing everything it touches. Top: Ozone Mint, Grapefruit, Glacier Water Accord - Medium: Sage Clary, Lavender - Bottom: Oakmoss, Coumarin, Tonka Bean.
My Thoughts: There is a lot going on in this scent and that means it could go either way. It can either be awful or spectacular. This one is spectacular. This is such a sophisticated and unique clean water scent. I can identify all of the fragrance notes it listed. It's a refreshing blend of herbal, minty, water, and green rolled all into one.Those are all my favorite type of scents, so it's no wonder. This one had great throw, but the scent only lasted for a few hours. I wish it lasted longer!
Scent Throw: 4/5 
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle
