What’s That In My Melter? Gardenia votive, Kringle Candle Company

I recently melted a Gardenia Kringle Candle Company votive in my bulb melter (1.7 ounces, 40W bulb). This was a very powerful gardenia scent. It was heady and strong – I smelled all flower with no greenery. I love the scent of gardenia, but I do think I would have liked a little touch of greenery to this one to tame it a bit. Even though I enjoyed the melted votive, I don’t know if I could handle a large jar candle in this...

What’s That In My Melter? Glazed Walnut Spice, Swan Creek Candles

I had a couple of cubes of Swan Creek’s Glazed Walnut Spice wax melts that a friend gifted to me some time ago. I finally got around to melting the cubes and I was so pleased with the scent! The scent was warm and nutty, with just a bit of sweetness. Aside from the nuttiness, it smelled like some brown sugar and spices were added in. But the main show was the scent of walnuts – yum! The scent was strong enough to fill up...

What’s That In My Melter? Cinnamon Vanilla votive, Yankee Candle Company

I recently melted a Yankee Candle Cinnamon Vanilla votive in my bulb melter (1.7 ounces, 40W bulb). I have previously reviewed the large jar candle, and it was then that I discovered that I loved this YC scent. It’s more than cinnamon + vanilla…it actually smelled like some baked goods. A cookie, maybe? I’m not sure, but the scent was fantastic. The scent strength and throw were good – this scent filled up the...

What’s That In My Melter? Mata Hari, Tuscardero’s

One of the many goodies a friend sent to me was a wax melt from Tuscadero’s in the scent Mata Hari. She thought the scent on cold sniff would be too musky for her tastes. I was certainly happy to try! I love the wax melts from Tuscadero’s, so I was anxious to try this particular scent. I really enjoyed the scent – not something I would usually purchase for myself, but it was good. It was warm and smooth and sultry. I...
