Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 6/26/16-7/3/16

It was a fairly good week for wax. I didn't have a dud this week which is a nice change because I've had so many in recent weeks. I've also dabbled a bit into wintery scents this past week which is odd considering it is sweltering outside! 
Better Homes & Gardens Cranberry Apple Martini
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: I purchased this before Christmas time and when I sniffed it then I felt that it didn't smell like a winter scent. It was too fruity and bright. Well, when I melted it this past week I felt it wasn't really a summer scent either. This is more of a fall scent. That being said, it's really nice. It's strong on the cranberry, so it's a bit tart, but it also has this fruit punch vibe going on. It's a great scent, but I think I'll like it more in September than June/July!
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: N/A, it was limited edition during the holiday season, but it could reappear!

Ten Digit Creations Suds in the Bucket
Scent Description: fresh linens, lavender, and vanilla
My Thoughts: I'm a lavender fan, but I'm not a huge vanilla fan. This one was a gamble for me and I'd say I like it about 75%. I'd say this is about 70% vanilla/linen note and 30% lavender. I wish it were the other way around. It is a very nice clean scent. I melted it for a good 3-4 hours and then I started to find those vanilla/linen notes a bit overpowering. I do like this one, but it does have a time limit for me. 
Scent Throw: 4.5/5

Ten Digit Creations Dragonfly
Scent Description: she smells of jasmine blooms, fresh air, and sunshine
My Thoughts: Jasmine is a scent people either love or hate. I love jasmine. I thought this scent was very strong as far as jasmine notes go. It's very fresh and floral. I do get a touch of an airy note to this and I wish that airy note had a bigger role. I do like this scent, but it could be mellowed out just a pinch. 
Scent Throw: 4/5

Ten Digit Creations Blue Christmas
Scent Description: orange peels, cloves, fir needles, and cinnamon
My Thoughts: If I'm melting Christmas scents in July it's usually because I'm craving something cool and crisp. Blue Christmas fits that bill. It's a really nice blend of a bright citrus, wintery crisp air, and Christmas tree. I do detect a teensy bit of cinnamon, but it is very much in the background. This is the type of scent that remind of when you go outside on a very cold day during the holidays and take a deep breath in. It's so crisp, refreshing, and festive!
