Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 8/21/16-8/28/16

I think I'm definitely a seasonal melter. Last year, after fall/winter season I couldn't stand any woodsy scents. I found them really off-putting. Now, I'm noticing I like them as well as some bakery scents. While right now, summery ocean or tropical scents sound repulsive. I'm guessing it's because I definitely overdo it with seasonal scents in their season to the point I get sick of them. Then I go 6 months without melting them and somehow something resets in my nose and I like them again.

Anyone else like this? 

On to this week's melts!
ScentSationals Vanilla Pumpkin Cream
Scent Description: Enjoy a smooth, creamy swirl of pumpkin and vanilla on a perfect autumn night. Baked with nutmeg and sprinkled with cinnamon, this scent is a flawless addition to any fall evening.
My Thoughts: I'm not bakery scent person usually, but I tend to warm up to them in fall. This really doesn't smell anything like vanilla or cream to me, though. This smells really buttery like a pumpkin flavored butter cookie. It's really scrumptious smelling and it's not really sweet which is probably why I like it. 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: ScentSationals

Ten Digit Creations Black Oak & Currant
Scent Description: lush black currants and rich forest woods are fused with amber, black pepper,geranium, clementine, and patchouli
My Thoughts: This is a really unique and sophisticated scent. It has a really dark, rich, and complex woodsy base balanced out with a tart currant. This is really high-end and luxury scent that reminds of something along the lines of Jo Malone or Tom Ford where you'd pay like $65-$110+ for a small candle of a scent like this one. I'm really impressed with it!
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

ScentSationals Crimson
Scent Description: Cranberry & Oak
My Thoughts: This smells like a woodsy vanilla men's cologne. The woodsy notes are the most prominent. I don't really detect cranberry in this, but there is the tiniest hint of something fruity perhaps plum? This reminds me of B&BW's discontinued body care scent called Vanilla Noir. It's not a bakery or sugary vanilla note, but a rich and mature vanilla note. I really love this one!
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Lake Providence Lodge White Tea
Scent Description: This is clean, fresh and floral. White tea leaves mingled with light florals. A very feminine and lovely scent.
My Thoughts: I'm not sure I can add much to the description because it is spot on. It's a nice blend of tea and florals that is clean and inviting. It's definitely a soothing scent for me even though it is fairly girly. The throw could be a bit stronger for me, though.
Scent Throw: 2.5/5
Where To Buy: Lake Providence Lodge
