Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 6/5/16-6/12/16

I broke even this week on wax. I had two hits and two misses. I'm also getting the point where I'm running out of new wax to review! Oh no! Hopefully, I find some more soon.
Wilma's Lavender Chamomile
Scent Description: A calming mixture of fresh lavender and relaxing chamomile.
My Thoughts: This is your Johnson & Johnson Bedtime Bath baby lotion type scent. I love this scent. It's a very soothing and relaxing scent. This was the perfect 50/50 blend of lavender and chamomile. What I found most noteworthy of this scent was the strength. This was strong! I have a few lavender and chamomile blends from other brands and they're always a fairly light scent in regards to throw. I'm very happy this one is strong in a good way, not overpowering. 
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Wilma's Shop

Yankee Candle Home for the Holidays
Scent Description: The holiday spices of cinnamon and clove, mixed with earthy cedarwood and balsam.
My Thoughts: Yes, it's June and it's 90+ degrees with 80% humidity, but I was in the mood for this scent. This is your very general holiday scent. Picture it, Michael's, Joann's, and Hobby Lobby October-November. Cinnamon pine cones. That's how this smells. I really love this scent. It's not sugary or bakery, it's not overpowering Christmas tree. It's a nice cinnamon woodsy blend that smells like the most wonderful time of the year.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Yankee Candle

Ten Digit Creations Under the Sea
Scent Description: cool clean ocean water with a refreshing blast of mint
My Thoughts: This one is weird. I don't get any clean ocean water scent from this or any true mint notes. This smells exactly like Orbit Sweet Mint gum. Orbit Sweet Mint gum is my favorite flavor, but I don't want my house to smell like it. This is a very artificial gum mint smell without any water notes. I was hoping the mint in this would be like an herbal mint you get in clean scents (i.e. Eucalyptus Spearmint). That would have made sense for a scent named this with that description. Unfortunately, I'm just getting Orbit gum. 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Wilma's Shop White Peach Spa
Scent Description: This fragrance is very interesting as white peach offers a bit of a tart but sweet citrus note and honey adds just the right amount of sweetness.
My Thoughts: I'm not getting any peach, honey, or sweetness from this scent. All I get is tart lemon. It's not a nice lemon either. Usually, I prefer tart lemon to sweet, but this was just harsh and bitter. There wasn't anything peach or spa-like about this. Blech.
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Wilma's Shop

Happy Sunday!
