There were not many fall or winter scents when I was looking at this shop. I did message her, asking if she'd be adding more. After a very brief reply that seemed to indicate no, I decided to place a small order anyway because those prices were awesome. And I realized it didn't matter that there weren't many seasonal scents because I've been ordering so many of those from other places that I'm now running out of summery scents that I can still enjoy in these last few weeks.
***UPDATE*** When I finally melted this several days later, it still had that weird note while cold but once warmed it bloomed beautifully into a super yummy bakery scent. Mmmm!
Shipping was fast. I ordered Thursday morning and received the package in Monday morning's mail. There was a business card with a handwritten message on the back, and of course that free tart that I mentioned. At first I was a little disappointed when I saw the size of these tarts. I'd thought the prices were SO great, but these are smaller scallops than the ones Sweet Fixations or Tiffany Candles has. These only weigh about a half ounce each. After my initial shock, I'm ok with it. The prices still come out comparable to other places. There are some nit-picky irks I have about the shop itself (scent list blurs together, etc.) but I noticed it is also a fairly new shop, so maybe she's still getting settled in and used to things. I really hope the scents bloom and become clearer when warmed. Even if they don't though, I'm glad I gave this shop a try. Sometimes you just have to veer away from where the crowd flocks and give someone else a chance.
