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.

No
I didn’t even bother trying to burn this candle and put it straight in the melter where it fragranced the surrounding area beautifully.

Salted Oak Bonfire

Bath & Body Works, 3-wick

This scent truly reminds me of being on the beach. It didn’t throw that great when burning so lived the majority of it’s life in the melter. There it performed amazing!

Banana Split Milkshake

No
On cold, this smelled EXACTLY like a chocolate dipped banana. It turned into a truly disappointing burn though and smelled like melted wax. Putting it in the melter really saved the fragrance though and scented my entire home.

Wax Empties | July 2018

Salted Pistachio Sorbet

Better Homes & Gardens, wax melt
Scent

Repurchase?
No
A beautiful pistachio blend that didn’t last for too long melting.

Bonfire Beach

Scentsy, wax melt
Scent

Repurchase?
Yes
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.

Fragrance Empties | July 2018

Boardwalk Vanilla Cone

Bath & Body Works, hand soap
Scent

Performance

Repurchase?
Yes
One of the best fragrances that BBW has ever released and I will always repurchase no matter the performance. Think of vanilla ice cream inside a freshly baked waffle cone.

Boardwalk Vanilla Cone

Bath & Body Works, hand sanitizer

Repurchase?
Yes
Again, this scent is incredible and I will purchase it in every form.

Summertime Soda Pop

Bath & Body Works, wallflower
Scent

Throw

Repurchase?
No
A citrus fizzy fragrance that faintly lasted all month long but just wasn’t all that successful in wallflower form – it lost all it’s sweetness.

Funnel Cake

Bath & Body Works, wallflower

Repurchase?
No
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!
