She asked me to give her about a dozen scents I'd like to try and she's going to pick from those to make up a sampler! I've already received a shipping notice, in fact!

My favorites were:
- Bird of Paradise
- Heat Wave
- Pink Sugared Lavender
- Pink Sugared Passion Berry
- Shampure Clean
All of these had a really strong throw (except maybe not the Passion Berry so much...it was a really nice scent but I only melted 1/2 of a tart of that one at a time - I don't really remember the throw). I used a 24 watt melter for all of my CFTKR tarts.
My order was several sampler packs so that was a good way to try different scents. I didn't like a lot of them and some had very low throw (paraffin is a big hit or miss for me on throw). That said, the Heat Wave, Pink Sugared Lavender, and Shampure Clean scents were sooo good and so strong that I will definitely order bags of these in the future!
I emailed Carol with a question and she answered right away...my order shipped immediately, too! So, great customer service.!

I didnt have any luck with Heat Wave though. For clean, I love Merlins Forest and Cool Citrus Basil. I dont know how she gets them to me so fast, its like she's standing outside my house. Are you going to order from her again? Thank you for the tip on Shampure and Birds, I'll get those next time. And she's hard to beat for customer service.

Her scents melt well in one particular room in my house...I am finding that certain vendors melts work best in only certain rooms! I actually haven't had much luck in the past with most caramels/brulees, however, I did like Sugar Cookie Latte at lot - also Frosted Lemon Cookie Snap (they were freebies ).. These didn't throw strong or long but they were not in my "good CFTKR" room. I really like corn pudding tarts so I guess I'll have to try those. I also liked Lime Basil Mandarin. If I could buy singles, I would get another one of these. I liked her Pink Sugared Lavender because it had a good "zing" to it.

Cello bags are non-reactive to the scents in the tarts. I love that she uses these too. I've ordered many scents from her in the past. Some of my favorites are: Bear Claw, Blueberry Pancakes, love many of her pumpkin scents, Sweet Strawberry. Her strawberry shapes are so realistic and well-scented. I love those! Carol is also generous and has great customer service.
