Hot Buttered Rum - [no description]
Not only have I had to eat my earlier words about Front Porch Candle Co. recently, but I seem to have swung to the extreme other side and have now become one of the addicts who stalk the site. LOL!! I'd gotten several in gift/swap packages and more recently placed a small order myself, along with another larger order just the other day. Ooohhhh dear . . .
I melted this whole .9 oz. tart in my tea light warmer without expecting too much from it. I think I just go into all tarts now expecting lackluster results. My luck seems to be turning though, because once again, I was pleasantly surprised with the scent throw on this little guy. I could smell it throughout the downstairs of my house, even when I first come through the door from being outside, but it is a medium type scent. You know it's there but it's not like -Wham!- heavily perfumed air alert! It's a very nice level of scent.
In my cold sniff notes I said this was almost caramel-like, with an almost salty note. I think buttered rum is supposed to be like butterscotch, isn't it? Now that I've plenty of time to smell this one warm, yeah, it's more of a butterscotch sweetness. This is a super yummy, creamy, warm and cozy scent. There is a very faint hint of spice but it's nothing that any spice haters need to fear. A delicious scent that I would absolutely buy again.
