Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 8/14/16-8/21/16

It was another pretty good week in wax for me. I think I also like knowing I'm not low on wax to review. I do have a handful of stuff for the future. I do wish my Walmart would get the entire selection of new wax from ScentSationals and Better Homes & Gardens, but I don't know if that will happen :(.

ScentSationals Pumpkin Spice
Scent Description: It's Pumpkin Time
My Thoughts: You know I'm not big on foodie scents, but I do enjoy some pumpkin scents. This is one I absolutely love! It's really just the perfect blend of straight up pumpkin and spice notes. There isn't anything cakey or sugary sweet which is where things can go awry for me. This scent is warm, cozy, and festive for fall. 
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Better Homes & Gardens Bundled In Blankets (Cozy Winter Coat + Plush Fleece Mittens)
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This is another dual sided wax one. I melted these together. The Cozy Winter Coat Side has a warm cashmere linen scent with what I'm smelling as a slight coffee note. The Plush Fleece Mittens also has a cashmere linen note with some vanilla perhaps? This is a nice scent, but I think it's weak on throw and together it just kind of falls flat. I think it's because they're both so similar. I feel like it needs something to pop. 
Scent Throw: 1.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Ten Digit Creations Blue Ridge Sunrise
Scent Description: fresh mountain air, dewdrops suspended from the tree leaves, and the rising sun in the distance
My Thoughts: This is a great fresh/clean nature scent. I really get a strong ozone airy note paired with fresh spring water. It's a very natural scent that makes you feel like you're outside in nature. The scent description is spot on with this scent. If you're a fan of clean airy scents you will want to try this one. 
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

ScentSationals Yin & Yang
Scent Description: The relaxing scent of eucalyptus and mint
My Thoughts: I was curious about this one because ScentSationals also has a scent called Zen with a similar graphic and scent description. I'm pretty confident these scents are dupes of each other. This is basically Bath & Body Works Stress Relief. It's very a soothing scent. I will say one difference I notice is that Yin & Yang has a lighter throw than Zen. Zen you can easily get at Walmart whereas Yin & Yang you have to order from ScentSationals. Zen > Yin & Yang.
Scent Throw: 3/5
Where To Buy: ScentSationals
