Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 12/18/16-12/25/16

Merry Christmas to all out there who celebrate. I'm glad it's Christmas because per usual I'm mostly over holiday scents. I've melted all I want and care to melt. After fall and holiday melting pretty much September-December, it's time for a change. This is usually the turning point where I like to start melting brighter and cleaner scents, but this past week was mostly all holiday scents. It was a good wax week too!

Mainstays Winter Mittens
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This smells a lot like a B&BW Mahogany Teakwood or Yankee Candle Midsummer's Night type scent if you're familiar with those. It's a musky, masculine, and woodsy cologne type scent which I do really like. I wish it had some mint in there to brighten it up so it seems a bit more wintery, but I can't really complain about anything else.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Walmart

Butterfly Lane Spearmint Spruce
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This one was gifted to me and I can't find a scent description. I'd say the name says it all. It is a balance of spearmint and Christmas tree scent. I was worried about a scent like this because those two scent notes are typically really strong on their own and can be overpowering. This wasn't though, it was a softer scent that still had a nice throw but wasn't too much.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Butterfly Lane

Ten Digit Creations Christmas Spirit 
Scent Description: cranberry, bayberry, fir needles, clove
My Thoughts: This scent has a lot of nostalgia for me. It smells like this Christmas tree that used to be at this inn we'd stay at every Christmas vacation in California when I was growing up. It's a very bright, fresh, and slightly sweet Christmas tree scent. The bayberry really comes through in this scent the most to my nose. I wish I could describe it better because it's so nice and unique to other Christmas tree-like scents.
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Ten Digit Creations Baby's Butt (now Rockabye Baby)
Scent Description: baby lotion with notes of baby powder, lavender, and lilac
My Thoughts: This is one of those scents I was for sure I'd never like but decided to give it a try and I regret not trying it before. This scent is the perfect cozy and freshly clean type scent. I've been melting this in my bedroom at night and it is so soothing. I don't like the name, but it does smell like baby products hence the whole soothing thing, NOT a dirty diaper baby's butt scent ­čśé
Scent Throw: 3.5/5
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

Merry Christmas!
