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!

A delectable fragrance that smelled identical to freshly baked muffins. It’s too bad this candle hardly threw at all, even when put on the melter 🙁

One of the best bakery fragrances I’ve ever smelled – thank goodness BBW brought this back for 2018. If it weren’t for wicks randomly extinguishing themselves, this would have been a 10 star candle all-around!

In true Yankee fashion, this hardly threw and took too long to fully pool – so it lived the majority of its life in the melter. It was a beautiful cinnamon & banana blend though!

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.

Summer Boardwalk is a classic transitional scent for me, but this version wasn’t the best performer.

August 2018 Wax Empties

On cold, this smelled identical to a fresh berry pie! When melting though, you really only detected the berry note when you could smell it at all.

Corpsman

Super Tarts, wax melt

This still remains one of my favorite fragrances of all time! It’s truly a graham cracker scent that is the perfect blend of salty & sweet and really throws!

Honestly, I’ve been working on this soap since LAST SEPTEMBER! The fragrance is straight up cranberry with an undertone of cider which really isn’t my preferred notes.

This was gifted to me on my wedding weekend last October and we’ve been slowly using it ever since. It’s a really nice fresh fragrance that lingered long after using it!

Wow, this was incredible. A beautiful berry & bakery blend that I couldn’t get enough of. Really wishing I had more!


This month I burned 5 Candles & 2 Wax Melts!


Even though I didn’t necessarily discover any new fragrances in August, this was still a great transitional month for me! What was your favorite candle of the month? Share in the comments below!
