Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 5/1/16-5/8/16

It's been a pretty good wax week. I did have one flop, but nothing this week that I thought smelled bad so that's good! I'm starting to get to the point though where I need new wax to melt. I'm running out of things to review!

Candles by Victoria Bergamot & Herbal Mint
Scent Description: This revitalizing combination of peppermint, cucumber, floral, bergamot, and lemon oils is extraordinarily pleasing to the senses.
My Thoughts: I really loved this scent. Peppermint is the strong background note, but you definitely get a lot of greenery and citrus from the bergamot in there too. It's a very clean and fresh scent that really brightens up a room. I love the crisp refreshing mint paired with green notes from the cucumber. This one is great!
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Candles by Victoria

Ten Digit Creations Fresh Air
Scent Description: clean and crisp morning air
My Thoughts: I was hesitant to purchase this one because "Fresh Air" type scents either fall really flat or smell like harsh laundry detergent. This "Fresh Air" fell a little flat for me. This does have light laundry scent paired with like a dewy spring fresh scent. It just blended into the background and I didn't really notice it. I think that is partially the scent's fault and perhaps partially my own. I have Glade plug-ins going in "Clean Linen" throughout my house. That's a very neutral clean scent, and perhaps this scent just blended in with that where I couldn't detect it. It's a nice scent, but could be stronger.
Scent Throw: 2/5

Ten Digit Creations Shampure
Scent Description: blend of over 25 raw materials, including coriander, eucalyptus, lavender, orange, bergamot, and ylang ylang
My Thoughts: This is an actual Aveda dupe and it smells it. This has a lot going on, but it's really nice. This smells like a blend of peppery, herbal, and minty notes. I would say this does go a bit to the medicinal side, but I personally like it. That being said this does fit the clean category, but it's very distinctive. I'm pretty sure this a scent you either love or hate. I love it.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5

Wilma's Blue Lagoon
Scent Description: The fresh and salty scent of the clearest blue waters of a lagoon with lush foliage.
My Thoughts: I don't salty water scent from this one. I get like a waterfall, stream, lake, fresh water scent from it. This is a that type of water scent blended out with some aloe and other greenery. This is a very thirst quenching type smell. It's a very juicy and sweet water scent. I really like this scent.
Scent Throw: 4/5

Happy Sunday!
