The five scents I picked . . .
Lemon Pound Cake (NEW) - 'Moist rich pound cake blended with fresh lemon, topped with a sweet powdered sugar glaze.'
This smells really good on cold sniff, strong on the cake.
Malibu Rum Cupcake (NEW) - 'Notes of coconut, sweet buttercream, rum liquor, and rich maple syrup are all mixed into a creamy vanilla cupcake. YUM!'
Not even sure why I picked this other than I think I had this scent from a different vendor recently and seem to remember liking it. On cold sniff right now, this is strong on the coconut, with a pretty strong cupcake note behind it.
Pistachio Pudding Cake (NEW) - 'Creamy vanilla custard is blended with nutty pistachios, almonds, and honey to create this decadent scent.'
Once again hoping this will be like the pistachio scent I love from another vendor, I was excited to see this as one of the new scents for the month. While this is closer to the beloved scent than the other recent attempt, this one is still not it. This one is very heavy on the almond note.
Pearamel (NEW) - 'Thick and decadent caramel is mixed with vanilla and buttercream and drizzled over fragrant baked pears.'
This just sounded interesting. I do like pear scents, and do like most caramel scents so this seemed like a safe choice. And oooh, this is good! Almost smells like caramel apple instead of pear, that same bright and juicy and sweet creamy scent. Mmmm!
Mango Sage Tea (NEW) - 'Sage leaves are blended with mango, strawberry, papaya, and white tea leaves to create this refreshing scent.'
I've loved The Melting Fairy's tea scents so far, so when I saw a new one for the month I decided to grab it, even though I'm iffy on mango scents. This is interesting. The tea notes are there, like a sweet tea. The mango is on a tolerable level for me. I think the sage is really doing something, but I'm not sure what sage smells like on its own so I can't say for sure how much impact it's having in here.
If you're not familiar with The Melting Fairy, it is a monthly subscription box of wax tarts. Cost is $14.50 a month, and that includes shipping. You get to pick five scents from the scent list, and you will receive two 1 oz. tarts in each of those scents. You will also receive a surprise chunk blend each month, and sometimes one of two freebies. Sign up by the 20th of the month to receive the next month's box. New scents are added each month. There is also a Facebook page . . . HERE.
So far, I'm glad to be back in the program.
