May 2018 Fragrance Empties

Just like most of 2018 so far, May was a whirlwind. We’ve been extremely busy and again didn’t have much time to think about melting. The following candles and wax melts I did manage to get through this month though.

Thank god I stocked up on this fragrance last year, because it’s amazing. The 1-wick tunneled but I was still able to enjoy in in my candle melter!

Repurchase?
No
This was a unique blend and after the first initial burn it performed flawlessly! The only reason I wouldn’t repurchase is because it doesn’t rank high enough on scent appeal.

May 2018 Wax Empties

Repurchase?
No
I was interested to see if this blueberry fragrance had a bakery note when warmed, but it was honestly just a straight up cloying blubbery scent.

Wild Berry Cheesecake

Better Homes & Gardens, value wax melt

An incredibly sweet berry fragrance that I’ll just never get enough of.

Repurchase?

In the store, this smelled like a raspberry cookie but once I got home it had a pungent perfume note. When melting it was hardly noticeable.

May 2018 Fragrance Empties

Sweet Cherry Pie

Bath & Body Works, wallflower

Repurchase?
No
When this was first plugged in, I could smell it throughout my entire home for several days. Then it fizzled out to nothing. In terms of fragrance, it was too heavy on the cherry for my liking.

Lavender Macaron

Bath & Body Works, wallflower

This consistently fragranced my home throughout the month and remains a favorite scent of mine!

Sea Island Cotton

Bath & Body Works, hand soap

Repurchase?
Yes
My absolute favorite hand soap fragrance did not disappoint. 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 lotion

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 already stocked up and don’t need more.


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.
