Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 11/20/16-11/27/16

It was another fairly good wax week! I'm trying to slowly ease myself into the holiday scents and that hasn't been too hard for me. The only bummer thing about wax lately is the Walmarts I've been to do not have their holiday wax out yet outside 1 or 2 scents. I'm hoping they'll get more.

Ten Digit Creations Ivory Clean
Scent Description: fresh and squeaky clean just like the soap
My Thoughts: This smells exactly like Ivory soap. It's a very hard scent to describe, but it's so nostalgic to me as it was the soap I remember having in the house when I was younger. It's a very clean soapy scent, but it has this distinct scent note to it I really can't describe. Go smell a bar of Ivory and you'll know what it smells like. I really enjoyed this scent and it had a nice throw.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Wilma Harvest 
Scent Description: A fabulous warm blend of cinnamon, clove and spices. A Yankee duplication.
My Thoughts: I have the Yankee one and was disappointed with it because the throw as light. I was hoping this would be stronger, but it wasn't much. It's an excellent scent on cold it's the perfect blend of Thanksgiving/Christmas cooking spices. It just isn't strong enough. 
Scent Throw: 1.5/5
Where To Buy: Wilma's Shop

Ten Digit Creations Christmas Cabin
Scent Description: blend of bayberry, cranberry, cinnamon bark, and orange
My Thoughts: I adore this scent. This is an amazing Christmas scent. It really is the perfect blend of all those Christmas notes from greenery, fruit, and spices. You can detect the individual notes, but they come together for a perfect balance. This reminded me a lot of Yankee Candle's Home for the Holidays scent. They're very similar. 
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Yankee Candle Catching Rays
Scent Description: Sharp orange and golden amber bring that great beach feeling of being warmed all the way through by a perfect summer sun.
My Thoughts: Orange and amber are not what come to mind when I smell this scent. It's a beautiful scent, though. I get kind of a laundry, fresh, floral, water blend going on with Catching Rays. It's kind of like a seaside fancy resort type smell. I know that can be anything under the sun, but it's what I'd imagine my fresh towels to smell like at a resort such as that. It definitely dethrones Yankee's Ocean Star and is my new favorite Yankee scent! Unlike other Yankee tarts this one has a great throw! 
Scent Throw: 4/5
Where To Buy: Yankee Candle

Happy Sunday!
