Pixie & Toad Wax Co. is a company that has a knack for creativity. That creativity and uniqueness is what drew me to them along with many, many other customers. So many that it became a little overwhelming especially with the amount of time and detail that goes into each piece. I placed my first order with this company on August 5th with all understanding that there would be a wait time of about 4-5 weeks. Though when that TAT came and went, I became a little weary especially after hearing some of the negativity that began to sprout up and others who had also not received their order that had ordered before I had.
That is when I politely contacted the vendor. She was very quick to respond and explain that they had fallen behind and would get to mine as soon as they could. I’d say about a week and a half went by before I made contact again. This time I was told that my order would be ready by the following Tuesday to ship, which it did and I received this package on the 20th of October. As I can see by the pour dates, they are shooting these orders out as fast as they can and shipping them within a day or two of them being made trying to catch up.
I’ll start with the Halloween portion of the haul. I also want to start off by saying the detail on these items are outstanding esepcially for rushed/fast paced work. As I hold the wax in my hand and examine each one while taking these pictures, I can see the time it must have taken to paint on the color and or luster dust on each groove and indent (especially with the unicorns you will see later on.)
I believe that Frank and Bride are both scented in crisp clean, cotton sheets which smell true to its description. Laundered and clean giving off that snuggle feeling without the harsh chemical type linen smell that some home fragrances have that are headache inducing. This is just enough freshness and it is very nice.
Jack $2.25 – A blend of rum soaked cherries, buttery orange, warm maple sugar drizzled with chocolate, caramel, sugared vanilla and honey.
A light sugared honey comb drizzled in caramel. Not much else detected though with some curing the scent may deepen.
Jack & Zero $3.00- Apple Honey Clementine
Scented in golden delicious apples, picked bright yellow from the bushel. Slightly tart but with a crisp and sweet finish. The clementine adds a citrus aroma that’s tangy and sugary giving it a perfect balance to the tart apple.
Unicorns(6 pack) $2.50 –Majestic, glittery and scented with lavender and coconut milk…yum!
This reminds me of what I believe Jergens lotion smells of. Soft, pampered and calming. Coconut rich nutrients with lavender undertones. Aren’t these stunning?!
Rhizzo The Green Dragon $1.25– Moroccan Mint
Rich mint leaves picked and crushed for their essence than combined in a creamy vanilla mint.
Than I’m torn. Do I go ahead with my Harry Potter portion of the order or leave that for another fandom haul/review?
Okay. I decided to share but be prepared for them to make a reappearance in a warmed Potter post!
Hedwig $2.25– Fresh, crisp, snowy blend of juniper, sage, bergamot & aromatic evergreens and Amber.
An overwhelming amount of sage hits the nose first dominating the fragrance before allowing any other scent to break through. Besides the smell of sage, a slight winter evergreen woody tone can be detected.
Pygmy Puff ($2.75)- Dazzleberry, sugared berries blended with ginger ale
Sweet spun sugar clouds and ripe berries dance around effervescent bubbles to create this fun childlike fragrance.
Mandrake $4.00 (One)– A fall blend of Oakwood, hay, mint, beeswax and chamomile.
A very unique, earthy blend. Minty undertones and bundles of hay mingle together with twigs of oak and a breath of fall to create this screaming fragrance. Really wonderful on cold so I am excited to give this a go once cured.
Exploding Bon Bons $2.75 (6 pack)- Explosive blend of Satsuma, half blood Orange, pineapple and a crackle of cake.
Fruit enriched tartness that will make your eyes bulge and your lips pucker before exploding in your mouth a sweet blend of pineapple juice and smooth, juicy citrus. A true tangy, fruit explosion! NOTE: The tops are coated in pop-rock candy which in turn leaves the wax and bag sticky to the touch. I hope that doesn’t make a mess in the warmer.. we will test that in the warm review.
Have you ever ordered from Pixie and Glad? What were your thoughts? Let me know!
