(I seem to like to melt same coloured tarts in a row! I melted 3 purple tarts in March and now I have 3 white ones in a row!)
The Olive Lemon Grove (The Bathing Garden)
After sniffing through my The Bathing Garden haul several times, I decided that this scent is my favourite. The minute it goes on sale again, I will be buying hunks and hunks of it. It is such a sweet and subtle citrus scent, no acidic sharp edges to it whatsoever. I could sniff it forever!
Spearmint (Super Tarts)
Melting my first Super Tart! The wax is harder than most and makes cutting them a bit of a mess and I would prefer this kind of wax in a clam shell or a smaller size for lesser fuss. But with that said, the minute I started melting it, the scent started pumping out! I am liking the Spearmint scent straight up by itself, it isn't hard on the nose at all, more like yummy toothpaste. Medium and consistent throw.
Silk Sheets (Two Timing Tart - Old Wax Formula)
This scent really took its own sweet time in wafting out, eventually developing into a faint, medium-low throw. I had two cubes melting in a tealight warmer. The first time I melted it, I was really disappointed, it had so little throw. But during the second melt, the wax threw faster and better.
Constantine (Crabby Candle Co.)
I feel like I stepped into a garden! I can really smell that fresh, green, flower scent (you know what I mean by that right? :] ). There's also a slight spicy note in there, which is not as out of place as you think, kind of like a carnation. This is a strong scent but with a medium-low throw.
Sugar Cookie (Super Tarts)
I am melting this on a cool night after a rainy day and it called for something sweet and bakery. Since Sugar Cookie is featuring in Super Tarts' May sampler and is their signature scent, I was curious to try it. It is a very authentic cookie scent but I am getting bored of it by itself because it's so one-note. Might try blending it on the next melt! Strong scent with a medium-high throw.
Spring Breeze (L3 Waxy Wonders)
I am loving loving this scent! It is so pretty and delicate. The scent throw takes a while to develop but when it does, it is high. However the scent is never overpowering, just wafting prettily through the air! I definitely need to get boatloads of this at L3 custom opening. By the way, I find this really similar to Bath & Bodyworks' Sweet Pea, it has similar notes of raspberries and florals.
Rain Water (Ten Digit Creations)
Melting a quarter cube in the office (yes, I finally brought a warmer in to work). All I can say is that this is a clean, soapy (in a good way) scent. I would totally bathe myself in this!
Orange Cream & Marshmallow (Candles From The Keeping Room)
The marshmallow scent is really strong and the orange is so authentic it's making my mouth feel like it ate an orange! I find this rather a mellow and relaxing scent. High but not overpowering scent throw. Scent lasted about 1.5 tealights, which is a little short to me.
Drunk Tweeting (Two Timing Tart)
TTT's old formula may not throw very well but I like it very much for my office. It scents my open plan cubicle but isn't strong enough to annoy my colleagues with scents they may not like. Win-win in my book. This is a coconut-mango mojito scent, I really like how subtle the mint is in here. Very tropical and refreshing.
Hawaiian Rainbow Cake (Crabby Candle Co.)
I smell mainly Pineapple in this scent blend, the rest of the fruits are blended quite nicely into a fruity, tropical scent. I am not detecting any bakery. Strong and consistent throw with the 0.75oz scent shot.
Honeydew, Strawberry and Creamsicle (Super Tarts)
This is a Super Pan chunk that I got from Audrey. Check out how the full pan looks here. It was a pretty generous chunk but it was very easy to break with the score underneath. With Super Tarts, the scent pumps out very quickly. The strongest note is a very tart Strawberry but it's mellowed to a sweet, fruity scent when the honeydew comes along. Medium throw but the scent peters out after 3 hours.
Sleepy (The Bathing Garden)
I am beginning to develop scent preferences during different times of day. It just doesn't seem right to melt fruity scents during the night. Sleepy is definitely one for the evening, I am loving that the peppermint and vanilla is more dominant that the pink sugar. Medium high scent throw with only one cube!
Fruit Loops (Front Porch Candle Co.)
An oldie but a goodie. I never get tired of Fruits Loops. I have only really tried FP's Fruit Loops and I want to try other vendors' interpretation! I am not sure why I have yet to order it in my numerous hauls so far. Anyway, standard medium-high throw from FP.
Drunk Texting (Two Timing Tart - Old Wax Formula)
I am not enjoying this scent on warm as I though I would on cold sniff. The cucumber is the strongest scent and it's a raw, fresh cucumber rather than a spa-like scent that I thought the blend would be with the mojito note. However, on the bright side, one cube of this is throwing a bit better than usual.
Serendipity Peppermint (I Heart Wax)
My first Serendipity scent, I think I like it! Surprisingly, it's slightly stronger than the peppermint, most reviews always have peppermint as the more dominant scent in blends. The cherry and vanilla is pretty strong here. Scent throw developed really quickly and is medium-high with only half a tart. Which means I am very likely to order during I Heart Wax's re-opening this Friday!
Apples & Peaches (Front Porch Candle Co.)
FP's Mac Apple scent is one of my favourite and I am loving this. I can't detect any Peaches at all. But that's totally ok with me. This one has a really strong throw. I am melting it in the office and it's throwing all the way out into the corridor. This is the first tart to be doing that.

Vintage Circus (The Bathing Garden)
Lemon Curd & Rose Milk (The Bathing Garden): This one cube is the strongest throwing so far of my office melts. Before the melt pool was fully formed, it was already throwing right out of the door!
