Fragrance Empties | November 2018

Fragrance Empties | November 2018

As I hoped, I was able to (sort of) revive my melting game in November! Between traveling for the holiday, transitioning to full-time freelance, and STILL not having my candles accessible in our new space, I’d say I’m pretty happy with what I did manage to burn through.

While I love the ambiance of Woodwick, they just burn down far too quickly and hardly throw even in the smallest spaces. So even though I adore this holiday-apple scent, it just isn’t worth the money.

I was shocked to find that I didn’t love this cranberry fragrance nearly as much as last year! It smelled far too fruity which isn’t what I enjoy this time of year. I actually gave away some of my stash to a friend who is much more obsessed with it than I am!

I’m still shocked that November has already come to an end but am happy with the overall group of fragrances I melted this month. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep this up in December too! What was your favorite fragrance of the month? Share in the comments below!

Fragrance Empties | October 2018

October 2018 Home Fragrance Empties

Happy Halloween! The end of the month really snuck up on me (yet again) in October which means it’s time to share my home fragrance empties! We still have yet to unpack the majority of our house due to work craziness which hasn’t exactly encouraged me to burn or melt much of my collection. Here is what we did enjoy this October! 🙂

(Also, I apologize for the awful quality of this month’s photos – I’m still trying to determine where the best place is to take pictures in our new space!)

I don’t really enjoy this scent as much as I once did. Maybe it was the low-quality tester candles? Even once I moved them to the candle melter it didn’t improve much.

When this released in 2017 I was obsessed with this scent, especially because it’s a dupe of BBW Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake. Yet, I just wasn’t impressed by it in our new home. (I have so many back-ups if anyone is missing this!)

OMG this 2017 release still amazes me. On cold it smells like a cologne scent yet when warmed it’s a delicious bakery pumpkin. SO HAPPY I have backups of this, lol.

This is straight-up a repackage of Pumpkin Caramel Latte from back in the day. The quality of this fragrance in wallflower form has really decreased since I first tried it in 2011 – it barely detectable in my bedroom all month.

I love this fragrance in other forms, but it really didn’t work as a hand sanitizer. Every time I used it, I was so grossed out by the scent for the rest of the day and ended up just DNF’ing it.


This month I burned 4 Candles & 2 Wax Melts!


As far as October goes, this has been the least exciting fragrance-wise in years. I won’t let that discourage me next month though and hope to revive my melting game before the year is over! What was your favorite fragrance of the month? Share in the comments below!

September 2018 Fragrance Empties

Happy Fall, fellow melters! We finally moved into our new place at the beginning of September…and proceeded to live out of boxes all month because of our crazy work schedules. Due to this, I haven’t even unpacked any of my wax melters yet and my candles are still hidden away in crates. Luckily, I was able to dig a few things out to enjoy since this is typically my favorite burning month of the entire year!

A super fresh apple scent that was really nice to get whiffs of throughout the day after using it.


This month I burned 2 Candles & 0 Wax Melts!


I’m pretty bummed that I didn’t get to melt a single wax melt in September, especially since the majority of my collection are scents I would’ve enjoyed this past month. (Sometimes being a seasonal burner is tough, lol.) The exciting thing I discovered while burning the two candles was that fragrances really travel and linger in our new home! We were living in a rather large space for the past year and a half which I think negatively effected my burning habits. Hopefully we can get settled in soon and start enjoying my stash again!

Fragrance Empties | August 2018

August was a month of packing for us as we plan to move into our new house VERY soon! I was a little worried that I wouldn’t have too much time to focus on burning. However, I was pleasantly surprised with what I melted through!

I’ve been burning through this candle for YEARS. Since its such a slow burner, I decided to just go ahead and put it in the melter where it lasted for weeks! It’s really comparable to BBW Summer Boardwalk which is why I wouldn’t bother repurchasing.

Fragrance Empties | July 2018

Can this year just slow down please? July came and went in the blink of an eye and I hardly got to melt a majority of my favorite fragrances. Don’t get me wrong, I’m ecstatic that Fall is right around the corner, but I just haven’t been melting as much as I’d like to lately because of my busy schedule. Hopefully I’ll have a bit more burning time during my favorite upcoming melting season! Let’s take a look at July’s empties before we get any farther ahead of ourselves.

This is an exact dupe of the former BBW hit Summer Bonfire. Think of Marshmallow Fireside with a different wood-note and hint of citrus. I don’t necessarily think this threw poorly because of the wax itself, but because of the circulation in my home.

This wallflower was consistently strong ALL month long – probably one of the best BBW has ever released.

This month I burned 3 Candles & 2 Wax Melts!


You may have noticed that the majority of my candles over the past few months have been put in the melter; I think this is a big discouragement to my burning frequency as of late. Maybe it’s just our current living space? I think I’ll start trying to experiment with different burn locations in August to help motivate me to get through more of my stash!

This month I burned 2 Candles & 5 Wax Melts!


May wasn’t exactly the most exciting month of melting, but I’m happy to have enjoyed just about everything I used up. At this point, I’m getting excited for SAS and hoping those hyped BBW candles are worth the splurge – they’ll be my first candle purchases of the year if so! If that’s the case, maybe it’ll revive my passion for the world of wax. If not, I have a feeling there will be more smaller burning months until Fall comes around.

April has come and gone in a flash and it surprisingly didn’t allow much burn time for me. My husband unfortunately got into an accident (he’s okay) and making sure he healed properly became first priority.

Fragrance Empties| March 2018

After an amazing month of burning in February, I sadly didn’t continue the streak in March. Anytime that we were actually home, lighting a candle didn’t even cross my mind. This is probably because there hasn’t been much going on in the wax community that has excited me this year. I still haven’t purchased a single fragrance-related product in 2018, can you believe that?! Nevertheless, here are the fragrances in my collection that I did manage to enjoy in March.

This month I burned 5 Candles & 3 Wax Melts!


My favorite scent of March was hands-down Raspberry Peach Macaron. I was so happy to be able to enjoy it again and loved every second of it. As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, nothing in the wax-world is really captivating me this year so far so don’t be surprised if I seem to go MIA. I’m just dedicating my time to other areas of my life and hope to get through a lot of products I already own without getting caught up in the constant buying cycle.

Burn List | March 2018

Don’t let this variety of pink packaging and floral scents fool you, we are indeed looking at my March burn list and not going back in time. For some reason, I prefer the sweet floral fragrances when it get’s closer to Spring. It just so happens that all the packaging blends together beautifully and will fit right in with my Easter décor! Without further ado, here is what I play on burning throughout the next month.

CANDLES

• Champagne Toast – “Glittering champagne, wild berries, tangerine zest”
• Lavender Macaron – 
“Celebrate the city of love with a truly French treat that combines the scent of lavender blossoms with a patisserie cookie”
• Lavender Marshmallow – 
“The merging of two unexpected flavors, Lavender and Marshmallow, make this mouthwatering blend a special treat”
• Pink Petal Tea Cake – 
“Rose Petals, Fluffy Cake and Orange Essential Oil”
• Raspberry Peach Macaron – 
“The ultimate French cookie is celebrated in a unique blend of ripe raspberries, juicy peach and almond cream”

WAX MELTS

• Pink Velvet – “This sweet and fun fragrance mingles sugared lemon, apple and pineapple into a sweet heart of tropical punch and red currant. Sugar cane and vanilla bean in the base deliver a captivating finish.”
• Umbridge – 
“Tea & cakes, sugar dusted roses and cotton candy”

If the past month was any indication, I don’t think I’ll have any trouble getting through this entire burn list. I can’t believe I only have two wax melts in my entire collection that fit this sweet floral theme – expect to see multiples in my empties!
