There is nothing like sitting around a fire on a chilly fall night, wrapped in a warm, fuzzy blanket and sharing a tasty treat such as oh I don’t know.. a delicious s’more with your friends or loved ones.
Vendor/Brand: Crossroads Originals Designs
Product: Half Pint Mason Jar, One Wick
Online Scent Description: “Melted Chocolate, toasted marshmallow and graham crackers.”
Repurchase?: Maybe, seasonal, fall like candle in my opinion.
If I were to blind fold you and stick this candle under your nose and ask you what you smelled, your answer would probably be like many that this test was conducted on when I asked many of my loved ones that were put under testing when they came over to my house. “Just close your eyes and tell me what you smell..” “No, I am not going to trick you, how mean do you think I am?” Don’t answer that. 😛
Almost everyone’s response was chocolate. Chocolate is usually a no no when it comes to scents like wax, perfumes, candles, ect. This fragrance goes beyond chocolate. On a deeper whiff you can pick out the graham cracker notes and the sweetness of the gooey roasted marshmallow without being bombarded by the richness of the chocolate. The candle was so infused with fragrance oil that the top near the wick was leaking small drops of oil before it was lit.
Wowza, this candle threw like a champ in my kitchen for it only being a mason jar candle. If chocolate would have been the only note this sniffer would have picked up on.. this candle would have been put out immediately but you truly get a true s’more like fragrance that had me craving Hershey’s chocolate and rummaging the cabinet for graham crackers.
My cabinets came up short but what I did find in my cabinet though where these cute yet spooky ghost marshmallows that are just perfect for this time of year! When I found these Ghoster Roasters at my local market it was an instant must have mostly for the shapes and the packaging but also because I knew they would be perfect for this post too!
Though I may have not made it to a pumpkin patch just yet and I don’t have a backyard for bonfires.. (small patch of grass in front yard.. but wouldn’t want to be evicted from the new place) doesn’t mean that I couldn’t enjoy a roasted marshmallow.. or two.
Wonderberry Wax Co.- Marshmallow Fireside Wax Melt
Vendor/Brand: Wonderberry Wax Co.
Scent: Marshmallow Fireside
Product: Wax Melt
Warmer Used: Glade
Fiery embers, smoking wood, gooey marshmallows and a touch of vanilla. Perfection. A very close dupe of Bath & Body Work’s Marshmallow Fireside.
Now that I have moved into a bigger apartment, I have to test out what works and doesn’t work with melting in the my new space. For instance this melt was far too strong for my bathroom then also for my bedroom, so I moved it into my open living room/kitchen area and it worked fine and threw great. Other melts I have tested are great bathroom or bedroom melts because my living room/kitchen is larger than what I use to have. I’ll get the hang of the place and melting.. it’s my first week guys so hang in with me! ha-ha I will need to find a dedicated melting room which I feel my crafting room/my husbands office will do nicely.
Have you taken part in any fun fall fun? Any marshmallow melting? Let me know!
Until Next Melt,
