The Nantucket Cranberry had to go--it was really strong and had some note in it that did not set well with my nose. I replaced it with Buttercream and left everything else.

 

We had a brief shower and so far that is it for the rain.

trep, Bummer about the Nantucket Cranberry...that sounds like a good scent...I love YC Cranberry Chutney.

 

This afternoon, I've been enjoying HHS Apple Orchard Funnel Cake...really yummy. You get the fresh picked apple scent along with the yummy bakery spiciness of the funnel cake...an awesome combo imo.

 

Off to take DS to karate...

I started with Baby Cucumbers from Can-do but it wasn't for me. I've all but given up on cucumber scents.

Switched out to Candles from the Keeping Room - Sweet Milk in all of the melters. th_smilies-2.gif

I took the wax out of a mini B&BW's Smores candle & am melting it. It's a good sweet marshmallow/smokey scent.

 

This is one of my current obsessions--I can't seem to get enough of it lately. [smilie=th_slider_flirt]

 

Rivercat, how was Juan's Burro Ride? th_FULL_O17.gif I'm trying to imagine the scent description.

 

The name certainly could indicate a whole bunch of things, right? [smilie=th_Skratta_Bankabordet] It's one of Streetman's coffee scents: "fresh brewed coffee, cinnamon and cream." It's probably the least creamy and sweet scent in their coffee lineup.

 

Tonight it's B&BW London Calling.

 

Have a good evening!

Good Morning everyone. Today's assortment was put in the melters by my teen and I am not sure what all is in there. I do know that everytime one of the girls comes in my room, I am greeted by the distinct smell of coffee and maple in their hair and skin. lol! Too funny!

Hey, Cat--great to see you on here.

 

 

 

I've been out doing retail therapy at Yankee and BBW. I got two canning jars at BBW--Pumpkin Cupcake and Spiced Cider and I got Lake Sunset at Yankee on the recommendation of a friend. I have been pondering this one and have a votive going at the moment. I did buy a large jar but wanted to check it out via the votive first. I have it downstairs on the kitchen table and I can smell it upstairs where I am (kind of an open loft area) so this is a nice strong one. Not overpowering though--I think it may be a keeper. Hope so anyway. That is all I am going to have on for the evening as I can't think of anything else I have that would complement it.

 

 

Have a great night, everyone!

Brrr.th_autumboy.gifCindy, that is a chilly low temperature. Sweater weather, for sure.

 

Today I've been melting what's left of a BBW jar candle - Bahama Fizz. It didn't burn well so I finally gave up and put it on the warmer plate. For this evening I'm melting another candle - AB - Amalfi. This one burned great but there is a 1/2 inch of wax at the bottom and I don't want to waste it.

Trep, glad to hear that YC Lake Sunset has a bit stronger throw than I thought it might. I, too, have the large jar but haven't tried it out yet. Guess I better get to burning it, huh!

 

For now I have a CBV Sun & Sand dupe burning. To my nose it really doesn't smell much like the YC version, but still pleasant enough.

 

Have a great rest of the evening, everyone!

Thanks, Maggie.

 

Candlefan--Lake Sunset has a very good throw and that is from the votive. I have it on again this morning and it is scenting several rooms. I imagine the jar will do even more.
