Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 5/15/16-5/22/16

This wasn't a great week in wax for me. I had more duds than wins. You live and you learn! That being said, even if I get duds I still like trying them out and reviewing them. I hope next week will be better especially as I have some new wax on the way to me!

Colonial Candle Juicy Watermelon
Scent Description: The ultimate summer refresher, the sweet, cooling scent of juicy watermelon.
My Thoughts: This is 100% Jolly Rancher fake watermelon scent. I hate artificial watermelon scent or flavor, it is nothing like real watermelon. It always smells so synthetic and oddly tart to me. Watermelon is not tart! Watermelon is my favorite fruit and I eat nearly everyday. I know my watermelon! Yeah, I'm pretty peeved. This is fake watermelon. Not for me. 
Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle

Ten Digit Creations Cucumber Apple Splash
Scent Description: fresh cucumber, juicy apple, and a dash of zest
My Thoughts: This scent is really a nice blend of green apple and cucumber. It's very crisp, sweet, and strong. That being said, I find it a little too sweet and overbearing for my tastes. This smells more like it would be better suited to a bath and body care product than home fragrance. I'd prefer this in a shampoo or something. 
Throw: 4/5

Ten Digit Creations Kumquat
Scent Description: a small citrus fruit....smells like a mix between orange and grapefruit
My Thoughts: This scent I love. This is the winner this week for me. I love this citrus scent. It really is mix of orange and grapefruit. It has the perfect balance of sweet and tart, and it's very natural not synthetic in the least. I melted this after cleaning the house and it was perfect. It was fresh, clean, and inviting.

Colonial Candle Snowday
Scent Description: Let the snow fall outside as you bundle up with this refreshing blend of eucalyptus, mint, and dewy greens. Top - Apple, Melon, Peach, Pineapple Middle - Jasmine, Rose, Violet, Dewy Greens, Eucalyptus, Mint Leaf Bottom - Sheer Musk, Vetiver, Rosewood, Amber
My Thoughts: This smells really nice on cold. The strongest note I get are the "dewy greens" followed up my floral, fruity, and musk. I don't really get the "Snowday" theme, it doesn't smell like a winter scent.  This is a very general clean and fresh scent to me. It's nice, but it's not the best. I also could not smell this when melted at all. I think either it has a weak throw or just blended into my Glade wall plug-in scent.
Throw: 1/5

Happy Sunday!
