Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 5/22/16-5/29/16

It has been a fairly good wax week. I'm definitely finding myself craving summer scents lately. I love fruity scents, but I'm incredibly picky about them. I hate sugary sweet candy scents, and I find a lot of fruity scents can go that direction. I prefer the more natural fruity scents or fruity drink scents (granted they don't get too sugary). It can be a lot of trial and error in finding the right fruity scents, but I did have some success this week. 
Ten Digit Creations Fruit Slices
Scent Description: orange, grapefruit, strawberry, melon, peach, kiwi, and sugar crystals
My Thoughts: This is scent is fruity perfection. I love the blend of fruits in this scent blend and I don't find the sugar crystals aspect to take into a sickly sweet direction. This has a really nice natural tart and sweet fruit blend that has a nice throw. It reminds me a bit of a fruit punch type scent, but not a specific brand of fruit punch.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Better Homes & Gardens Sun Washed Poppies 
Scent Description: An intriguing floral, fruity blend that opens with notes of sweet apple, pink raspberry and white pepper. A playful heart of rose petals, jasmine, and wild poppies leads into a sensuous comforting base of sandalwood and sun-washed musk. 
My Thoughts: I'm so on the fence with this scent. I'd say I like it about 80%. This is going to be such a convoluted review.  I really get the fruity and floral blend. The raspberry and poppy are most prominent. I do like this and had it melting all day, but I also don't like it. I think it's the poppy note. It's nice, but poppy can go a bit musty to me. It almost smells like an overripe peach or something. It's really not bad I swear, there is just this underlying "hmph" type thing going on if that makes any sense! I think some people will like it others will not. 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Colonial Candle Caipirinha 
Scent Description: Sip on Brazil's most popular cocktail with notes of sugar cane rum, honey, and lime. Top: Tangy Lemon, Bergamot - Middle: Cardamom, Currant, Orange Blossom - Bottom: Vanilla Bourbon, Musk
My Thoughts:  I love citrus and I love bergamot. I especially love citrus drink blends. This one is really nice as it's very citrusy, sweet, and clean. It's not too sweet and is a really refreshing blend. The throw on this was inconsistent to me. I'd get a strong whiff of it here and there, but other times I really had to try to smell it. 
Scent Throw: 2.5/5
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle

Wilma's Fabuloso Type
Scent Description: Just like the lavender household cleaner. So good and so strong!
My Thoughts: I hate artificial scents (when it comes to artificial fruits and etc.), but I do love chemically laden smelling cleaning product scents. This smells exactly like Fabuloso and I love the smell of a freshly cleaned house with bleach and other chemically ridden cleaning products. This is awesome and the scent description is right it is strong, but in a good clean way. I did not find it overpowering. If you like cleaning product smell you'll like this, otherwise, stay away. In fact, I think this is a dupe to ScentSationals Lavender Glow
Scent Throw: 5/5

Happy Sunday!
