Melted - Candles From The Keeping Room / Orange Cream Cupcake

Orange Cream Cupcake - 'Top notes of Orange Peel, Tangy Lemon, and Citron Zests; combined with rich notes of Creamsicle Frosting, Brown Sugar, Sweet Buttercream, Drizzled Rum, Bittersweet Chocolate, and Vanilla Extract.'  
This was yummy nummy scent, for sure.  There is a lot going on in that scent description but the short version is just as the name implies . . . orange cupcake.  The orange part of it was very much there, very bright and cheerful, very sweet with just the right amount of zing from the other citrus notes.  Having said that, this was definitely a bakery scent, not a fruity scent.  Not knowing all those extra notes (rum, chocolate, etc.) while melting it, I was just enjoying a warm and cozy cake scent, like a white or yellow or even pound cake.  And then that orange scent just brightened it up.
I melted this entire 1 oz. tart in my tea light warmer and had a strong throw, creeping into most rooms of the downstairs of my house.  The scent was there immediately but seemed to peak within the first hour or so and then tapered down to a very pleasant medium scent for the remainder of the tea light.
I really liked this one!


  1. Sounds really good.

    I like your profile picture, btw. You might need to change the number of cats in your description, though. ;p

    1. No no no. We only have TWO cats. Those flea bag things outside are just rodent control fendforyourself-ers. :P
