Box Opening: The Lampstand Fragrancepalooza

I had never shopped at The Lampstand, but they recently had a Fragrancepalooza sale that drew me in. The Lampstand has a little bit of everything, but they offer a wide range of fragrance lamps, oils and candles. The Fragrancepalooza sale included different sales on a variety of products and there is always free shipping on orders over $65. Sold!

Date ordered: September 14

Date received: September 21

The jar candle is a closeout scent in Pancake Breakfast: Comfort food for the nose: steaming blueberry flapjacks piled high, butter melting perfectly and hot maple syrup were the inspiration for Pancake Breakfast. This smells fabulous on cold sniff! I smell a lot of maple syrup with background notes of pancake batter. I don’t smell any blueberry on cold sniff. This has a moderately strong cold throw.

Courtland Apple Wax Potpourri Melt: Here is a wonderfully authentic balance of tart and sweet, the very essence of perfectly ripe autumn fruit: our Cortland Apple. Oooooh my – wonderful! This smells just like a ripe, red apple. Juicy, a little tart and a little bit sweet. Strong cold throw. These are a little odd shaped melts to me but oh well. I can’t wait to melt this one!

Autumn Winds Wax Potpourri Melt: Spicy woody undertones marry sweetly with the unmistakable and nostalgic aroma of crunchy fallen leaves. This is a great Fall scent. It’s earthy and woodsy with a hint of sweetness. Great cold throw.

I have not tried the Ribbonwick candles from WoodWick before, so I decided to get one of the Fall Limited Edition candles scented in October Sky. The candle vessel is simply beautiful. It is stunning and the website picture really doesn’t do it justice. Returning this fall by popular demand, the October Sky Collection features a buttery rich pumpkin fragrance mixed with sweet almond extract backed in a warm strudel. This is a nice slightly sweet pumpkin scent. The cold throw is rather weak on this one.

Swan Creek drizzle melts will get me every time. Love them! These melt packs are HUGE!

Dutch Apple Pie: (No scent description available) Mmmm, Mmmm, good. This is a warm and sugary apple cinnamon scent. On cold sniff, it smells just like the filling of a hot apple pie. Great cold throw!

Lemon Icebox Cookies: (No scent description available) This is a long-time favorite of mine. It is lemony, slightly tart and has a light, airy type of cold sniff. This has a great cold throw. I wanted to bite into these cute little melts!

Capri Blue Candles, Volcano

Volcano from Capri Blue Candles is one of my favorit-est candle scents in the world, so this was a no brainer when I saw this one available. Tropical fruits and sugared citrus. That’s exactly what this candle smells like on cold sniff – sugary and fruity. It has a fairly light cold throw. I am in love with the hot throw on this one.

 

 

 

 

I’m very pleased with my order from The Lampstand. I can’t wait to dig into this order and I’m keeping an eye out for more sales from The Lampstand.

Have you ever ordered from The Lampstand? What are your thoughts?

Happy candle burning ~
