Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 8/7/16-8/14/16

This has been a good week for wax, not just because I melted some good ones, but I found some new ones. I went to Walmart last Monday and they did have a handful fall scents out. I also got a Ten Digit Creations order with some new to me scents. Let's check out what I melted this week. 
ScentSationals Nag Champa Incense 
Scent Description: A space for peace
My Thoughts: Not a very descriptive scent description there. This scent is spectacular. This does have a traditional nag champa scent, but it also has this very clean and fresh element as well. I definitely get an earthy/floral base, but it has a brightness and I'd even call it a soapiness to it. It reminds me a lot of Lush's Celebrate. It has a lot of elements but overall creates an excellent scent. This is one of my favorite new scents I've come across in a while. 
Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Ten Digit Creations Bamboo & White Grapefruit 
Scent Description: fresh and clean scent of bamboo stalks and white grapefruits
My Thoughts: I got this as an unexpected sample and I'm so glad I did. I would have never bought it myself and it is a beautiful scent. The combination of the green bamboo and the tart citrus grapefruit is perfection. This to me smells like the ultimate spa scent. It's very green, crisp, and natural. This scent is a winner and I'll be purchasing it in a full-size melt for sure. 
Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Better Homes & Gardens Autumn Afternoon Stroll (Golden Oak Leaves + Apples & Acorns)
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This is one of the dual scent packs where you have two different scents and you can melt them together or separately. I melted these together and it was absolute fall bliss. The Golden Oak Leaves side has a very sharp woodsy and smoky note while the Apples & Acorns has an apple, spice, and nutty blend. I don't think I'd like these melted individually, but together they're amazing. Blended they have this perfect woodsy, apple spice, with this touch of campfire smokiness going on. I know that's a mouthful, but it's of those complex scents that thankfully less isn't more. It needs all of those elements to be so good. 
Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart 

Ten Digit Creations Tohrment
Scent Description: blend of lavender, jasmine, sandalwood, oak moss, and musk (Compare to Cool Water by Davidoff)
My Thoughts: I can't compare to the cologne because I don't have it, but this a nice scent. It's one of those fresh and crisp masculine scents. I like it enough, but I didn't find the throw to be so great. It had a strong throw if you were 2-4 ft away from it, but after that, I could only catch whiffs of it here and there. 
Throw: 2.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Happy Sunday!
