Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 5/8/16-5/15/16

This was a fairly good wax week. I only had one odd ball wax this week, otherwise it was fairly good. The only issue I really seemed to have this week with the waxes I melt was throw. I wanted some stronger wax!
Colonial Candle Sea Spray
Scent Description: Splash around in a crisp marine blend of sea grass, salty sea foam, and amber sand.Top: Sea Grass, Seaweed, Herbal - Middle: Marine, Ozone - Bottom: Driftwood, Sea Salt, Amber
My Thoughts: This is probably the most authentic and natural salt water scent I've come across. I get a very well balanced ozone, sea salt water, and seaweed blend from this wax. It's ocean perfection. It's a very refreshing scent with decent throw too.
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Colonial Candle

Wilma's Lavender Eucalyptus
Scent Description: A relaxing blend of wild lavender and fresh eucalyptus.
My Thoughts: I loved this scent on cold. It really is a nice balance of lavender and eucalyptus. This got weird when melted though. I did get that soothing lavender and green floral eucalyptus, but something else was coming out in it. I swear I got this weird note of chicken and waffles. I know that sounds bizarre, but that's what I was smelling. It was like lavender, eucalyptus, fried chicken ,and maple syrup.  Needless to say, my nose to offense to this bizarre mystery note. Blech. I don't get any of that weird note on cold though -shrug-.

Ten Digit Creations Rainbow Sherbet
Scent Description: creamy vanilla with notes of pineapple, honeydew melon, and raspberries
My Thoughts: This reminds me of that fruit punch stuff you'd have at parties as a kid. It was a mix of Sprite, Hawaiian Punch, and rainbow sherbet in a punch bowl. This smells like that. It's amazing! I get the tartness from the raspberry and the bite from the pineapple, a hint of creaminess to it, plus this fizzy note. I LOVE fizzy and effervescent scent, so this was my jam. I just wish it had a stronger throw.
Scent Throw: 3/5

Colonial Candle Cucumber Fresca
Scent Description: Relax with this garden-inspired medley of cool, crisp cucumber and fresh cilantro leaves. Top : Fresh Wasabi, Basil Leaf, White Grapefruit - Middle : Cucumber Peel, Trailing Ivy, Cilantro - Bottom : Cactus Blossom, Oak Moss, Violet Leaf
My Thoughts: Speaking of fizzy, this is another fizzy scent. This scent is so crisp and refreshing. I definitely detect the cucumber, grapefruit, and cilantro in this wax. I'm not familiar with cocktail types, but this smells like some type of cocktail made with seltzer water or something you'd want to drink on a very hot day. Like the previous one though, I wish it had a stronger throw. 
Scent Throw: 2.5/5

Happy Sunday!
