Even though June was a hot month in Rhode Island, that didn’t stop me from burning through a good chunk of my stash! The summer solstice definitely influenced what I was burning and I ended up melting 7 candles, 6 wax melts, and 2 wallflowers. Here is the complete list of empties:
Midnight Blue Citrus (3-wick candle) – I posted an in-depth review of this at the beginning of the month so I won’t go into too much detail now. Long story short, this was the perfect candle to kick-off my Summer seasonal burns. I really enjoyed it while it lasted but I don’t necessarily need it in my collection.
Island Margarita (3-wick candle) – I really liked this scent on cold in the store and figured it would help get me in the Summer spirit. I actually really didn’t like this candle when burning though. All I could smell was the salted rim of a tropical drink and it just put me off. My fiancé enjoyed it though so when it got puny wick syndrome, I finished it on the warmer. I’ll never repurchase this scent in any form again.
Bahama Fizz (3-wick candle) – This was one of the first candles that started my obsession back in 2012 & I made my first tarts with it. You could almost smell the rum mixed into this fruity fragrance! If BBW ever re-released this I’d probably pick it up again.
Mocha Latte Swirl (3-wick candle) – This is my favorite coffee fragrance to date and I’ve been working on this candle for several months now. It’s the perfect mix of bitter espresso, creamy caramel, and a hint of cocoa. I have hoarded several more already!
Summer Trio (1-wick candle) – This trio candle from Yankee included Summer Scoop, Merry Marshmallow, and Salted Caramel. I loved that it looked like neopolotin ice cream but hated that it barely threw. This definitely was far from my favorite.
Watermelon Lemonade (1-wick candle) – A tried and true scent that we all know and love. I’ll always repurchase but never hoard it.
Seashore (1-wick candle) – Another scent I picked up back in 2012 and really enjoyed this past month! It had a slight undertone of suntan lotion but blended perfectly with salty beach air. It really reminded me of my high school beach days 😉
Fresh Pulled Taffy (wax melt) – This was a scent I was SO excited about. It was a beautiful balance of sea salt, caramel, and strawberry. The melt was very sweet but didn’t throw. I could barely smell this in my small bedroom which was a major disappointment. Glad I gave it a try but won’t repurchase due to the performance.
Sevn’ Up Pound Cake (wax crumbles) – For the past 2 months, I’ve been searching for the perfect lemon-lime scent and this is it! Not only is the balance between citrus and bakery notes done SO well, but you even get a slight fizziness mixed in. I honestly can’t get enough and am thinking of doing a major haul next time Wax Crumbles is stocked!
Blueberry Cheesecake (wax melt) – This is an exact dupe of Wild Berry Cheesecake and the throw was equally amazing. I’ll stick with WBC in the future though due to accessibility and wax texture.
Peanut Butter Sugar (wax melt) – YUM! I also posted an in-depth review for this lovely scent a couple weeks ago. Without too much detail, this was the perfect balance of salty peanuts, warm vanilla, and a waffle cone. Will repurchase forever.
Country Breakfast (wax melt) – This was a nice scent to burn on weekend mornings. It had notes of maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and a hint of apple. While it was pleasant enough, I’m not in a hurry to repurchase.
Watermelon Patch (wax melt) – I love anything and everything watermelon during the Summer. This was an equally delicious fruity scent but definitely had a grassy note mixed in. Compared to other fragrances on the market this was a refreshing & unique blend. I still have plenty other watermelon candles to get through next month though so I’ll hold off on repurchasing.
Caribbean Escape (wallflower) – A great fruity scent that got me in the mood for Summer, but I could barely smell it. This is a Slatkin era version and had trouble evaporating.
Bahama Fizz (wallflower) – Another Slatkin era wallflower that I could hardly smell and barely evaporated. So over it!
Out of everything I melted this past month, Sevn’ Up Pound Cake was my absolute favorite scent! I’ve gotten through the majority of my fruity fragrances and am looking forward to burn some other favorites in my collection next month. What did you melt this month and which was your favorite?
