Melted - Sonoma / Holiday Eggnog

Holiday Eggnog - [no scent description]

Eggnog is one of my must-have scents for the Christmas season.  This is my first time trying this Sonoma brand (found at Kohls stores) and I'm impressed.  This is a classic eggnog scent, deep and creamy with that sort of sour note, and that rum-like note that I like.  There might be a hint of spice.  This is a good one!

I melted two cubes of this (about .8 oz. worth) in my tea light warmer and had strong scent.

(This was gifted to me.)

  1. Ooo, eggnog is one of my favorite holiday drinks! If I can get it in wax form that would be awesome. I'll have to check out the wax shelves while we're out shopping today :)

    1. Can you believe last year was the first time I'd ever tried eggnog? I liked it! So this year I bought just a small carton of spiced vanilla eggnog, and we had some Thanksgiving evening to kick off the Christmas season. I think that will become a new tradition for us.

      In wax, this was really good. If I do force hubby to go wander the mall with me, I'll have to stop in at Kohls and see if they have more of this. I have some eggnog scents from Dessa's and Sweet Fixations too.

    2. OK ladies, I'm issuing a personal challenge: stop by your nearest Kohl's store and peruse their wax selection. Wax melts and candles require your attentive noses. I'm really pleased with all Sonoma candle/melt purchases I've made this year. For me, this is the #1 challenger to BBW and their wide range of wax fragrances. However, the Sonoma candles are typically less than half the cost!

    3. I'm really quite curious about it now, and hopefully I get to the mall one of these days. If nothing else, I can order from the website, right?

    4. If I were you, Deb, I would stop by the mall before placing an order. I know you're picky about your fragrances and I'd hate for you to be disappointed. AND you'll be able to see first-hand that Sonoma has an incredible variety of candles/melts to choose from. Hey, would I steer you wrong?

  2. Yay! Glad you liked it! I saw that one and gingerbread and KNEW I needed you to have them. But I wasn't sure if they would be any good or not. I am going to melt some AmbieScents that you wanted to try from BBB today :-) Excited to try them out!

    1. I never knew that AmbieScents was also Scentsationals. I'd heard the name before and always disregarded them. So I'm looking forward to trying the ones you sent me! Thanks again. =)
