Melted - Soap Up / Blast Off!

Blast Off! - 'Columbian coffee, spices, nut and vanilla buttercream.' 
On cold sniff this was a really nice scent.  There wasn't much of a coffee note but there was a deep, rich, creamy note that was just so delicious.  I have to rely on my cold sniff notes because, unfortunately, this was a total dud when melted.  I got nothing from it.  Nothing.  I'm rather baffled by that because while the cold scent was still on the lighter side, I could still very easily smell it.  Where did it go once melted??
I started with just half of this tart (.7 oz. worth) in my tea light warmer and when I got no scent I added the other half.  When I still got nothing I thought maybe I just needed to wait a while, because there have been times when a scent didn't present itself until much later in the heating process.  Since this was my first ever tart from this vendor, I tried to keep an open mind and I waited it out.  In the end, I got nothing from this tart.  Even when I put my nose right over the warmer I only got the very faintest hint of scent.

This was a disappointing first experience with this vendor . . . but luckily the next tart I post about redeems itself.  Stay tuned!


  1. It's good that you kept an opened mind about this, especially since it was your first experience with this vendor! Sad this didn't have a throw, but looking forward to seeing your other thoughts.

  2. I'm not a believer in cure time for wax but it did enter my mind, 'Maybe if I'd let them sit for a while...' lol
