I finally was able to find some of the new Better Homes & Gardens winter wax melts this week, so that's a success! Overall, this wax week was a bit of let down. I had more duds than wins, but that's OK. Experimenting is fun anyways!
Scent Description: sweet peppermint, fluffy marshmallows, and whipped cream make up this sweet confection
My Thoughts: Peppermint scents are about the only sweet-type scents I do actually like. This one was alright. There is a definite peppermint note, but the cream and marshmallow notes are subtle. The scent is nice, but it's not 100% for me. The scent wasn't as strong as I'd like it to be either especially for a peppermint scent.

Better Homes & Gardens Winter's Sleigh Ride
Scent Description: Seasonal blend of orange zest, cool winter spices, smoky woods, incense and mountain fir, with a warming base of oakmoss, blue cedar and vanilla bean.
My Thoughts: This was my favorite scent this week. It's a smoky Christmas tree scent that is warm and cozy. The Christmas tree notes in here are not overpowering or strong as the smokiness really softens and mellows them out. I do detect a bit of citrus in this too. This is really a nice cozy winter air scent. I really like this one.

Yankee Candle Over the River
Scent Description: A cool and calm stroll by the river. . . watery green notes with hints of sage, amber and oak.
My Thoughts: This is one of those water and masculine cologne type scents. The watery notes and sage are most prominent to my nose. It's not the most original type scent, but I do really like it. That being said, the throw on this was weak. I could smell it very strongly if I was less than 3ft away from it any more than that it was undetectable to me. This is a common problem with Yankee tarts.

Lake Providence Lodge Sparkling Lemonade
Scent Description: Ice cold lemonade with a touch of fizzy citrus soda added.
My Thoughts: I should have known better when I purchased this one, but I love fizzy and effervescent scents so I thought I'd try it anyways. This is just way too sweet for me. It's very sugary and scents this sweet just turn my stomach. I think if you like sweet scents like many people do you would like this one. There is that fizzy note in there that I love, but it's just too sweet for my tastes and stomach!
