This two weeks have been an absolutely bonkers for me! I worked more 15-hour days and weekends that I would have liked. And it's not going to get any easier for the rest of the month. So despite all of that, I am surprised that I managed to melt as much as I did, which goes to show I should never use busyness as a excuse for not melting! How about you, how was your January?
I am not sure if I like this scent now that I am melting it. It's pleasant but it doesn't get me excited. Medium high scent throw, medium scent impact.
Surfer Girl (Vintage Chic Scents)
The strongest notes I am smelling is the coconut and the graham cracker crust. It's quite yummy and today is a rainy day which calls for a comforting scent. To be honest, whenever I pick up Surfer Girl, I keep thinking it's a fresh, marine scent from its name but then I sniff it and I put it down because of the graham cracker. But I really need to melt my VCS stash because I have had them for 1.5 years (omg, that long!). Medium scent throw, medium scent impact.
Creamy Fruit Slices (Tiffany Candles)
I wanted something energising for my first office melt of the year so I picked this one. It was just right, citrusy enough to jazz up my mood but mellow enough to ease back into the work week after a four-day weekend! High scent throw, medium scent impact.
Lavender Cream (Candles From The Keeping Room)
I was surprised by the initial candy sweetness that this scent pumped out first. I had left the room for a bath when I started the melt. But later it becomes a good ol' herbal lavender that really gets into your lungs when you take a deep breath. Really nice! Medium high throw, medium high scent impact.
Sea Salt & Rice Flower (Ten Digit Creations)
Really liked this scent, it was just the right amount of salty, fresh and sweet. It also wasn't as "heavy" a scent as I thought it would be. Medium throw, medium scent impact. Longevity of the scent was shorter than I expected from a TDC tart.
Lazy Summer Days (Vintage Chic Scents)
I am rather surprised at the performance of this VCS wax, the power of it was much weaker than I had come to expect of VCS. I could smell very little of this scent, The most of it being a sweet honeydew. Low throw, medium scent impact. [Oops, labelled the picture wrongly! Sunny Days is an RG scent!]
Sea Berry (Ten Digit Creations)
A fairly nondescript marine scent. I thought the berries scent note would be stronger and mix with the marine note but it's not really happening. I can see why this scent is leaving the TDC line-up. Medium high throw, medium high scent impact. (EDIT: On second melt, the sweet berry scent is coming through more strongly and it's really a very nice scent.)
Bubblegum Ice Cream (Sassy Girl Aroma)
I didn't detect any bubblegum scent, maybe because this piece of wax is pretty old? I remember thinking that it sounds like fruit loops though which is kind of weird. Lol! Medium throw, low scent impact.
Spring in Hundred Acre Woods (Enchanted)
Over The Moon (Rosegirls)
Fresh Flowers (Smelly Buttons)
