Melted - Sugar & Spice Gourmet / Pink Coconut Sun & Sand
This first one I melted was Pink Coconut Sun & Sand. I'm guessing the Pink is Pink Sugar, which is uber popular and is described as '. . . playful blend of vanilla and caramel. Notes include Bergamot, Sicilian Orange, Raspberry, Fig Leaves, Lily of the Valley, Licorice, Strawberry, Red Fruit, Cotton Candy, Tonka (Vanilla), Caramel, Musk, Sandalwood, Powder.' Sun & Sand is described as 'an ozony, blend of florals and citrus, combining white flowers, bergamot, orange blossoms, ylang ylang, muguet lily, and a light musk base.' And the coconut is probably, heh, coconut.
I would normally wait until summer to melt such scents but I'm so sick of our nonstop frigid winter weather that I thought this might be a pick-me-up mood changer. I'm not familiar with the Sun & Sand scent from Yankee, so I can't say how much of that might coming through but I think the Pink Sugar is pretty strong. There is an overall coconut note but it's not like it whams you in the face as a coconut scent. There is some musk and sandalwood action on a subtle level. I don't really get the florals or sweet juiciness of the fruits.
I melted all of these pieces (about 1 oz. worth) in my Glade 20 watt hot plate warmer and had strong scent and throw. It lasted quite a while, over four hours for sure.
Thanks for sharing, 'ufgatorbugg'!
