Fragrance Empties | December 2018

Fragrance Empties | December 2018

Ah, December – the busiest time of the year. Between the Christmas shopping, present wrapping, rush project deadlines, and holiday travels I didn’t have much time to focus on my burning. As you can see above, that is all I was able to enjoy throughout this final month of the year. Nevertheless, let’s dive in to my thoughts.

Marshmallow Fireside

Bath & Body Works, 3-wick
Scent
10
Performance

Throw

Repurchase?
Yes
A classic fragrance that no matter the performance or throw I will always repurchase and burn.

Spiced Vanilla Embers

Wal-Mart, wax melt
Scent
8
Throw

Repurchase?
No
This is a knock-off version of Marshmallow fireside in every way possible and wasn’t at all impressive.

Merry Cookie

Bath & Body Works, hand soap
Scent
6
Performance
4
Repurchase?
No
If it wasn’t for a sale earlier in the season, I never would’ve picked this scent up. There is something about the fragrance that just doesn’t smell like an authentic cookie to me which isn’t enjoyable. Fairly happy that it didn’t linger after washing my hands.

Marshmallow Fireside

Bath & Body Works, wallflower
Scent

Throw

Repurchase?
Yes
Again, a favorite December scent of mine. Even though this version didn’t perform I’ll try it again next year.

White Mint Latte

Bath & Body Works, wallflower
Scent

Throw

Repurchase?
No
I adore this fragrance in candle form but wasn’t too fond of it like this. It wasn’t all that detectable in my small office area at any point in the month.

Peppermint Brownie

Bath & Body Works, wallflower
Scent

Throw
9
Repurchase?
No
I am SO confused by this fragrance. In this form it smelled like a bakery lavender combination. I didn’t mind it at all but wasn’t what I wanted at the time and didn’t match the scent description at all.


In 2018 I burned 46 Candles & 39 Wax Melts!


As we wrap up this year it’s sad to see that my melting has reduced 50% since 2016 yet my collection has hardly dwindled. With that being said, I think it’s time to take a break from this blog as its taken the enjoyment out of fragrances for me and made it into more of a chore. I do still plan to track my empties but on a simple spreadsheet. If you still want to keep up with what I’m burning, check it out HERE.

Hoping you all have a wonderful 2019! 🙂
