Fragrance Empties | June 2018

Can 2018 slow down a bit, please?! June went by much too fast but I am happy to have gone through a nice variety of fragrance products!

Candle Empties | June 2018

No
Yet another tester candle that did not perform well at all. After about 3 horrible burns I put it in the melter and was finally able to smell it. Turns out, I’m not much of a cherry fan though.

Midnight Blue Citrus

Bath & Body Works, 3-wick

This scent still remains the best way to start the Summer season!

Storm Watch

No
This was essentially unscented when burning and for the amount of time it takes for Yankee’s to pool out, they’re just not worth it. This ended up living almost it’s entire life in the melter (for 2 weeks!) and was a nice clear fragrance for the bathroom.

Pink Apple Punch

Bath & Body Works, 3-wick

A sweet candy-scent that unfortunately smelled like kerosene when burning. Another candle that lived almost it’s entire life in the melter!

Wax Empties | June 2018

Rainbow Cookie

Yankee Candle, wax melt
Scent

Repurchase?
No
In the store, this smelled like a raspberry cookie but once I got home it had a pungent perfume note. When melting the fragrance was hardly noticeable.

Iced Lemon Poudcake

Better Homes & Gardens, wax melt

Yes
Like last month, this favorite scent of mine still lived up to it’s previous standards! Happy to continuously be enjoying this.

Fragrance Empties | June 2018

Repurchase?
Yes
My absolute favorite hand soap fragrance did not disappoint again! It didn’t linger as long as it has in the past but I still enjoyed it while it lasted.

Bonjour Paris

Bath & Body Works, body wash
Scent

Performance

Repurchase?
No
A sweet patisserie fragrance that I thoroughly enjoyed over the past several months! I wouldn’t repurchase if it returned only because I don’t particularly want to use BBW body washes going forward.

Lemon Buttercream

Bath & Body Works, hand sanitizer

Performance

Repurchase?
No
A super sweet lemon bakery fragrance that was definitely enjoyable throughout the Spring! Again, trying to tone back on my BBW products which is the only reason I wouldn’t repurchase.

Summertime Soda Pop

Bath & Body Works, wallflower
Scent

Throw
7
Repurchase?
No
A citrus fizzy fragrance that lasted all month long but just wasn’t all that successful in wallflower form – it lost all it’s sweetness.

Midnight Blue Citrus

Bath & Body Works, wallflower
Scent

Throw
8
Repurchase?
Yes
This scent remains just as beautifully in this form and stayed strong ALL month long!


This month I burned 4 Candles & 2 Wax Melts!


As much as I’d like for things to slow down so I can start to enjoy this portion of my life a bit more again, I know July will be just as busy. I can’t wait to share with you some of the crazy changes that have been going on so you can all understand why burning as been put on the back burner lately!
