My First Sweet Fixations Haul

Sweet Fixations is a new to me vendor who I discovered while reading a post over at my friend Deb’s blog somethingalwayz . After reading her haul of goodies and having an itch to order wax myself, I decided to poke around on SF’s site and see what all I could find.

There are many different options available to purchase whether you fancy wax tarts, shapes or samplers. I stuck with scent shots for my first order to allow me to sample more scents my first go around. Scent shots are $1.75 each. TAT is around 12 business days with shipping of $7.40 invoiced at time of shipment. As you notice in the haul, I was mostly in the mood for fall scents which is most of what I picked up with a few thrown in scents that I wanted to try and see if they would be good dupes of other vendors. Onto the goodies!

 

All Hallows Eve (Green)Spicy mulled grapefruit with a citrus orange note, and a sweet cinnamon vanilla twist.

Spicy, bright citrus brewed to release it’s fragrant spices to create one heck of a cider for Halloween night.

Hocus Pocus (Purple)A magical spicy blend of freshly ground cinnamon, and herbal notes of bergamot, jasmine, black tea, and patchouli.

Grated spices heavy on the cinnamon and cloves steeping deep in a dark black tea that would help awaken any ole sleepy monster.

Hayride (Yellow/Gold)Fresh hay with notes of sweet balsam combined with cedar-wood. Simply that fresh outdoor country air aroma.

I’m a sucker for hay scents around this time. Balsam, hay and cedar wood? Heck yes, bring on the outdoors! Sweet balsam is the key note that would have most smelling this think this to be a winter scent though the cedar wood adds a bit of depth and dare I say a bit of spice? Finish it off with a dusting of hay and you’ve got yourself a well rounded outdoors fragrance. Excited to melt this one!

 

Bewitched (Purple)Bubbly berries, mandarin, peach and more will delight the senses!

Bubbly indeed. Such a cheerful scent for any cackling witch. I’m not much for peach in scents but it somehow isn’t a dominate role stepping back while the richness of the red berries really take play and bring this scent to life with help of a little effervescent to tingle the senses.

Zombie Boyfriend (Grey)A deadly blend of cream filled cake, pumpkin waffles and fluffy marshmallow.

Mmmm! On cold this reminds me of a cereal I used to eat as a child. French Toast Crunch was it? It was really heavy on the vanilla and sticky syrup though my mom always said it smelled of cat pee.. *crickets* Though I will have you know this doesn’t smell of cat pee at all! Sweet vanilla cake aroma blends beautifully with pumpkin puree to soften and add creaminess all topped with a white marshmallow topping.

 

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts (Light Brown)Warmed dough topped with caramelized sugar and other spices

Cinnamon sugar bliss. So delicious I could eat it especially with what appears to be cinnamon adorning the top. Warms beautifully in my kitchen having my husband and I craving the cinnamon sugared candy nuts served at shows and fairs. Delicious!

Lucky Charms (Tan)-Smells just like the cereal we grew up with marshmallows and all!

I get more of an off scent Play-Doh vibe than lucky charms on cold. Maybe warmed will give me more marshmallow scent.

Pink Sheets (Pink)Pink sugar and fresh linens

I really enjoy the scent Pink Boxers from TheSmellGoodShop so I wondered if this would be a close dupe of it. Spoiler alert! It is! Such a wonderful scent that is perfect for sweet bedtime dreams. If only sweet pink sugar fabric softener could be a thing?!

 

A few of these I look back at the descriptions and wonder why I picked them as normally they wouldn’t be what I melt but after smelling them I am glad I went out of my comfort zone. I love them all and am excited to order again once I melt through a few of these.

Until Next Melt,

    YAY! So glad you ordered, and happy that you’re enjoying them. I’ve loved Sweet Fixations for YEARS. I’ve probably had most of these in this post at one point, even if just to try them when I know they’re not really my type of scent. lol
