Melted - Better Homes & Gardens / Crisp Fall Leaves
I popped two cubes of this Crisp Fall Leaves scent into my tea light warmer but I think one cube would have been enough. This one is strong. This is one of those that you can smell when you're coming in from outside, as soon as you open the door. It's also scenting the whole darn house, because Casey yelled from his room upstairs "This one smells gross!" LOL
If you remember from my Walmart fall tarts post not long ago, I couldn't figure out what the familiar main note in this was. I'd later seen someone on YouTube say it was pine, and now that's all I think of when I smell this. I'm pretty sure there is something else mixed in though, something like a slight smoky note, or maybe even some musk or amber . . . ? I'm back and forth on this one. At times I think I don't like it, and that it's too strong and 'sharp.' But other times I do like it because that crispness does indeed remind me of outdoors.
After one tea light length melt (about 4 hours?), there is still plenty of strength left in this one. Maybe the next melt will be a bit weaker, and a bit easier on the senses.
