Mandarin Cranberry - '(Yankee Type) Sweet mandarin oranges and tart cranberries.'
I tend to be iffy when it comes to mandarin. I always think 'Ah, it's like orange,' and I more often than not get harshly reminded that they are not the same. So in my brain, I went into this thinking it would be a fabulous cranberry-orange spiced deliciousness. It was not. This is way too 'pretty' for what I was expecting. It's not at all a spiced cranberry scent so there is none of that warmth. This is the bright and cheery, almost perfume-y type of cranberry scent. Add to it that sorta-orange-but-not note and it was just not working for me. It's probably still an awesome scent for a lot of people, but just not the warm, spiced, fall type of scent I was hoping for.
I melted this whole tart in my Glade hot plate warmer and had medium scent.
[This tart was a gift from a waxy bloggy friend.]
