While shopping this morning, of course I had to stop and check the wax section again to see if anything new might have been added since last week. I hadn't been expecting much because the shelves were already crammed full. Imagine my surprise when I saw they now had an end cap display . . . with some of those elusive scents I'd heard of!
Sunflower & Chrysanthemum - [no scent description]
I am not a floral fan but this in the fall line and I'd like to eventually get them all. Hubby likes floral, or if all else fails I can pass it along to someone else. And yeah, except for the nice fall picture on the label, I don't care too much for this one. I really don't know what either of these flowers actually smell like so I can't even tell you if this is anywhere near accurate, or if it's a blend of other things. It is a sweet scent, almost fruity or juicy.
Fragrant Woodland Walk - [no scent description]
Another one not really intended for me since this is not the type of scent I like. It's quite cologne-y, maybe a some pine, not sure what else.
Brandied Peach Cobbler - [no scent description]
I'm also not much of peach fan. LOL So why did you buy these, you're no doubt asking?! That's the life of a blogger. Sometimes we sacrifice, take one for the team. And this was one of the elusive ones so I grabbed it while I saw it. Definitely a peach scent, slightly warm but not really spicy. I do get a little bit of maybe a brown sugar syrup type note, but not a bakery note. I'll maybe pass that one on to someone else too.
Salted Caramel Pumpkin - [no scent description]
At first the strong salty note from the caramel had me a little leery. The gooey sweetness of the caramel comes rushing up behind it though, making it tolerable for me. The pumpkin takes a long time to show itself. It's sort of the after-taste of the overall scent, and it's a fresh carved pumpkin type, not the warm and spicy pie filling type.
Baked Orchard Apple - [no scent description]
I mainly bought this to compare it to Warm Apple Pie. Since I have both on hand now, I can do that comparison. On cold sniff Baked Orchard Apple seems warmer, more like syrupy pie filling, with perhaps even a hint of caramel. I really like it. Warm Apple Pie is a little spicier, not quite as deep and warm. I like them both but I think I prefer Baked Orchard Apple, at least on cold sniff.
Those are the few I picked up this week. I still have quite a long way to go if I want to get ALL of the fall scents. It is something I'd like to do though, as I play around with some new ideas and try to redo my focus on some bloggy things.
I still have not found the two I want the most though . . . Peppermint Vanilla Macaroon, and Cider House Donuts!! Have you seen them in your store? Is anyone willing to swap if they can find those?
Let me know!
