Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 9/4/16-9/11/16

I've had a couple of good wax weeks lately. The streak has been broken! It was almost a complete dud week. There were some redeeming factors with some waxes, but there was one this week that is probably the worst wax I've ever smelled!
Yankee Candle Autumn Gathering
Scent Description: A warm mix of fading sun and crisp days with harvest fruit, patchouli and sandalwood.
My Thoughts: I was drawn to this scent because it was an outdoorsy one. I'm having a hard time finding outdoorsy fall scents this year. They're all pumpkin, apple, and bakery. I like this scent it's fresh, airy, sweet, and woodsy. What I don't like about it is it just doesn't throw well. It's very lightly scented when melted.
Scent Throw: 2/5
Where To Buy: Yankee Candle

Better Homes & Gardens Perfect Pumpkin Ale
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This is absolutely vile. I know what they're going for here some pumpkin cider type smell. It doesn't work. This smells very acidic and sharp. I'm not exaggerating when I say this but it smells like stomach acid. You know if you have acid reflux or after you throw up? That's what Perfect Pumpkin Ale smells like! It is the worst smelling wax I've ever tried. I couldn't even let it melt down all the way I had to throw it out within in 10 minutes on the warmer. 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Don't, but if you dare Walmart

ScentSationals Cider House Donuts
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: You all know I'm not a bakery person, but there has been quite the buzz about this scent so I had to try it out. This is a bakery scent I can make an exception for. This one is very good. I've never tried a cider donut or seen one, so I can't really comment on the "cider" aspect of this scent. This does smell just like churros to me or those cinnamon/sugar hot nuts they sell during the holidays at malls and fairs. It's very yummy and it's not overly sweet to me. I melted this a good 4-5 hours before I felt like I had enough of it which is a record for me with bakery scents.
Scent Throw: 4.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

American Home by Yankee Candle Fall Morning
Scent Description: Enjoy a cool, crisp walk beneath the turning leaves…a scent of earthy cedar wood brightened with autumn blossoms.
My Thoughts: This one is very hard to describe. It's an airy, slightly woodsy, and very floral scent. It doesn't smell like any traditional autumn outdoorsy scent I'm used to. I really like this scent though. It's more of a perfume-like scent to me than anything I'd classify as outdoorsy. I just wish this had a stronger throw.
Scent Throw: 2.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Happy Sunday!
