It's been a pretty good wax week especially considering last week wasn't so great. I'm starting to panic now because I was trying to hold off on burning too many holiday waxes so I wouldn't get burned out, but Christmas is in 2 weeks and I still have plenty I haven't reviewed! I need to get my wax booty in gear!
Scent Description: Blackberry, dark pomegranate, and oak bark.
My Thoughts: I love scents like these! This is a very elegant and upscale blend of tart berries and woodsy notes. It's a very sophisticated scent. It smells like a famous old library or something. I know that's a terrible description, but that's what it makes me think of most. My only complaint is that the throw isn't very strong which is unfortunate.

Ten Digit Creations Holiday (Ralph Lauren Type)
Scent Description: blend of rich and sparkling fruit notes combine with fir, cedar, juniper and pine to create a sophisticated holiday scent
My Thoughts: I don't know the Ralph Lauren fragrance so I can't compare, but what this does remind of is Bath & Body Work's Winter. This is a citrus and smoky outdoorsy scent. It's fresh scent while still being cozy. I really enjoyed it. This also had a great throw.

Better Homes & Gardens First Winter Blizzard
Scent Description: Crushed peppermint leaf, smoked birch wood, fragrant pine and emerald holly leaf glisten with an icy, ozone freshness touched by mistletoe greens
My Thoughts: This scent is so unique and I love it! This has a fresh soapy scent to it, but with this icy and air coolness thrown in there. I'm not sure I'm detecting mint per say, but definitely something that brightens and cools this scent. It's really hard to describe because it's so unique. I don't own anything remotely close to this scent. The throw could be a smidge stronger, but I love it otherwise.

Butterfly Lane Appalachian Winter
Scent Description: Top notes of bergamot, orange, and lemon. Base notes of patchouli, vetiver, and tonka beans. This is a very unique outdoorsy scent.
My Thoughts: This was gifted to me by my friend Julie over at The Redolent Mermaid. This is another unique scent, but it has some familiarity to it as well. I'd call it a winter airy floral scent. The patchouli is strong in this which is where the familiarity comes from, but the other notes make it unique. I love the added notes of citrus and there is something else in there that brightens and freshens this scent up. Another great one!
