I love shopping on Etsy – it seems I always find something of interest there. Of course, scented wax is one of the things I’m always hunting for. And when I saw the site Truley Yours Wax, I knew I had to try them out. Cute photos always draw me in! There was a special running, so I decided to go for it. I purchased the I’m A Newbie Sampler (bakery scents), two Bundt Cake tarts (Fruity Loops and Wildberry Pancakes) and a cupcake in Raspberry Danish.
Date ordered: September 21
Date received: September 27
I love the way everything was packaged – so neat! And the smell? Oooooh my goodness, the smell! I was sitting here trying to write down my cold sniff thoughts and I was just in scent heaven with the smell of these tarts around me. Yes!!! I had to locate her scent descriptions on her Facebook page. Not a super big deal, but inconvenient at best.
My Bundt Cake tarts are really cute and quite big. She lists them at approximately 1.7oz each. They are perfect little bundt cakes that I will have to use in my large dish warmers (I don’t like cutting wax/tarts unless I have to).
Fruity Loops: smells just like the popular ceral Froot Loops and it will tempt you to get a bowl yourself ! I just love this scent from just about every where. This little cake smells exactly like the cereal. Perfect with a great cold throw.
Wildberry Pancakes: if you like blueberry muffins , try this one ! The maple does not jump out but instead a nice bakery warm blend with berries ! Now on this scent description, I would disagree. I smell mostly maple syrup on cold sniff. The berries do blend in nicely and just a hint of pancake-y smell. I love it! Super strong cold throw.
The cupcake is also cute and LARGE. I will definitely have to cut this baby up. She lists the regular sized cupcakes as anywhere from 3.1-3.5oz. The one I got was scented in Raspberry Danish: a wonderful bakers delight ! A warm confection of cinnamon , sugar and a raspberry filling ! I’d have to say as cute as this is, I’m not really digging this one on cold sniff. It has a perfumey scent to me – I’m not getting any bakery. The cold throw is strong. I hope I like this one better once melting it.
Truley Yours also has samplers and I had a hard time deciding on which one. I opted for the I’m A Newbie Sampler and chose Bakery scents (my first love!). She packages these so neatly! They would make a perfect gift as is. You get six 2oz mud pies in the sampler, no two scents being the same.
Toasted Marshmallow: a great one to try for vanilla lovers ! A warm , creamy vanilla Smells delicious – a heavy vanilla with just a hint of toastiness. Moderate cold throw.
Lemon Pound Cake: ok , if you have evr baked anything lemon before and enjoyed the smell , then you will love this one ! A warm , lemon baked confedtion . This lemon is a true bakery scent , no lemon lysol smell here ! OMG, this is my favorite of the bunch! Sweet lemon with just a hint of tartness and the cake notes are there as well. Strong cold scent throw.
Amish Bread (listed as Amish Friendship Bread on her FB scent list): This is a delicious scent . A smooth combination of cinnamon and sugar , smells like Monkey Bread This one smells OK. I’m smelling mostly cinnamon, some slight sweetness. Lighter cold throw.
Blueberry Muffin: I really love this all time favorite blueberry scent , it has the perfect combination of blueberries and warm sugar notes !! This smells really good. Sweet, sweet blueberries with just the right amount of muffin notes. I wanted to take a bite! Moderate cold scent throw.
Blueberry Cheesecake: (no scent description found) I’m not a big fan of cheesecake scents, so I’m not going to be the best judge here. This just smelled like blueberries to me. Lighter cold throw than Blueberry Muffin.
Pumpkin Cheesecake: if you like Pumpkin Spice , then give this one a try ! A nice spicy pumkin with a smooth creamy vanilla touch! I smell mostly cinnamony pumpkin, kind of creamy. I don’t detect any sour notes so maybe I will like this one! Strong cold scent throw.
Overall, I’m very pleased with this order. I’m going to start melting this items soon, so I’ll know if I want to place another order.
