Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 6/19/16-6/26/16

It was another dud week for wax. I'm finding myself very hard to please lately. I think it's because I really have my set scents I like, but I always want to try more and usually end up not liking stuff as much as I like my set favorites. I'll keep trying though to find some new ones I do like!
Ten Digit Creations Rose Water
Scent Description: rose petals and fresh spring water
My Thoughts: Blech. This smelled odd to me. It smelled like these rose candies they used to sell at World Market that I thought I was so fancy for having. It's sugary synthetic smelling rose that was not for me. I do get a hint of that "rose water" type scent I was expecting, but it's drowned out by something icky sweet. I was really hoping for something refreshing and floral. This wasn't it. The throw wasn't strong either. 
Scent Throw: 2/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

ScentSationals Kitchen Sunshine
Scent Description: Clean as a whistle
My Thoughts: Very helpful description. This is s heavy lemon scent, but not so much a clean one in my opinion. This smells like Lemonhead candies. Yet another expected clean scent that goes into sugary candy territory for me. I was expecting more of a natural lemon or even a lemon cleaner scent  with this one. I didn't get either. 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: ScentSationals

Ten Digit Creations Verbena Bamboo
Scent Description: fresh green aroma of verbena and bamboo
My Thoughts: Now we're talking! This scent I really do like. You get a really strong grassy green note from the bamboo in this scent with a splash of citrus. This scent is very crisp, clean, and refreshing. I really love the greenery notes, it's really a great summer clean scent. The throw could be a tad stronger.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Ten Digit Creations Cucumber Cilantro
Scent Description: fresh cucumber and cilantro with bits of grapefruit and lime
My Thoughts: I was a bit hesitant about picking this one up because I'm not the biggest cilantro fan. People usually either love cilantro or hate it. I'm actually an in-betweener about it. This worked out well in this scent, though. This is very refreshing with the cucumber. It has a strong watery and slightly sweet cucumber base note with citrus and some herbal notes from the cilantro. It's really a nice blend that works well together. My only complaint about this was while it had good throw I felt it dissipated really quickly after the first hour. 
Scent Throw: 4/5

Happy Sunday!
