Weekly Home Fragrance Roundup - Bring on the tropical goodness!Jun 11, 2021
Hi guys, I'm Melanie, happy Saturday, welcome to the
roundup. It's Memorial Day weekend, which is crazy. This is the last weekend of May and summer is just around the corner. I know that for me personally it is officially the middle of summer. Smell mode, I have graduated from mainly spring flowers and some lighter sweets to many fruity and
tropicaltype flowers. I will have a candle haul for you hopefully next weekend at some point I have placed several orders for new task releases including the new three wick candles that were finally released on ulta.
I'll put a link to uh I think it's four candles in total that finally became available on the ulta website. I'll put links for the ones in the description box down below. Below I'll also put links for any of these other things I'm talking about here. I think the vast majority should still be able to find them easily, with the exception of potentially one or two of these things, so anyway, tomorrow too. Many of you asked me for a tour of the heaters and I pre-filmed it for the video to come out tomorrow, so I'm literally taking you around my house and showing you all of my heaters.
There are many, most of them are aromatic heaters. but i still have one or two heaters left that are from ambisense or probably like the oak and rye brand maybe at um fred meyer honestly i'm not sure where they are from but the good news is that video is up so yeah ever wanted to see all my heaters, how many, where they're located, all that kind of information, that video is scheduled to go up tomorrow so make sure you're subscribed and you'll be notified of that um in terms of what I've got in the cracks of my candles this week I was just using the candle crocodile below again um my candle crocodiles in my film room and in my bedroom, but I haven't put anything in there because I didn't really need it, but I did need to put this in there, so what you will see here. uh, why did I put this there. um this is the raspberry mimosa, the White Barn Core collection version from uh Bath Body Works.
Obviously I love this scent um and usually this one doesn't misbehave, but we clearly have a few sitting here, so my crocs candle. I'm going to put my candle harvesting 101 video in the description box below for those of you who have been with me for a couple of months or many years. You already know what a sail crocodile is, but I think there are still a lot of people who when I say that term think it's a great accessory to have. are you an avid candle burner or wax melter um you can certainly put a jar in the bottom of a candle alligator like an empty or clean bath and body work jar and you can put some melted wax in there and there's a multitude of ways. that you can use these candle vessels correctly, the main thing you should do is not relight a candle after the crocodile is done with your candle, if that makes sense, watch the video.
I think it is very important that you maintain security. If you keep the concerns in mind, you can see that these wicks migrated very far to the edge of the candle. If I were to light this again, there is a very good chance that this glass would get so hot with the flame right next to it that it wouldn't burst. Only that will cause a huge mess, it's also a huge potential fire hazard, so once you commit to putting one of these candles in a candle crocodile, know that that's where it should end its life as if you weren't to turn it back on. okay, anyway, now that I've emphasized that, I'm probably still going to repurchase the raspberry mimosa because not all of them, like I said, have been city.
I really like this scent, there's not a lot of bath and body work that I really get obsessed with during the summer months, obviously I love it, I love summer boardwalk, I love berry waffle cone. I love the apple pie that Bath and Body Works has. I think it's a great apple pie scent and there are a few others but really my main one. The season of interest with bath and body work is probably like most of you. I live for fall candles. I live for Christmas candles and can't wait to see what they come out with this year.
I've never completely given up on baths and The Body Works, although honestly the quality of many of these is no longer what I'm used to. The fact that I know I can put it in a candle makes buying them, I guess, a little more justifiable for me because I know I can use them in another way if I can't actually burn them, so there is so much burning that in my office too it is week I've been doing this. I don't know if you can still get this, but you can. I love this scent. I hope I can find it somewhere for those of you who are interested.
This is Melissa's rose petal ice cream. First of all, gorgeous packaging. her when they're done so they can put little trinkets in there and I think that would be adorable honestly because they are so pretty but this scent is so delicious they don't have the notes here but Basically this smells like creamy vanilla mixed with a rose scent very sweet modern. This is not a grandmother's rose. It's not out of date by any means. It feels very modern in terms of roses and
fragrances, and I think the vanilla mixed with the rose is just a beautiful combination since gourmand rose petal tea cake and rose have been must-have combinations for me because I think which are such a beautiful combination, the rose alone can be very Um, cloying for some people, um, but when you mix it with a gourmet, whether it's a sugar cookie like a birthday cake type scent or something, really It
brings it to life and makes it much prettier, and if you want to be the kind of person who wants to enjoy flowers just mix them with a little vanilla.
I promise you that you will enjoy them much more and this is no exception, by the way, none of my assistants are here today and if you missed my introduction video of the big announcement. yesterday, uh, I'll link it below, you might want to check it out, it might make your heart explode, also this week had an interesting situation, more berry waffle cone. I love my berry waffle cone, but look. in this one, um, these two fuses decided to go out and it's not like they're insignificant, I'm just guessing they potentially exploded. I had these windows open earlier this week and that's what they could have done and it's there under that hood. obviously not under the bell when it's burning so yeah one of these wicks stayed lit while the others were saying no we gave up so I'm going to go ahead and light this later today and try to even it out a little bit. a little bit and then um yeah continue to enjoy this because I love the berry waffle cone and this is the very original berry waffle cone it was 2018 oh god this was 2017 this was so good the original it really was the best and this jar makes I think it makes a difference, you can get a berry waffle cone and I'll link it below this year.
I'm sure they'll have some kind of Memorial Day sale. Honestly, I haven't checked my emails yet, so I'm not sure. Are you eating a hot dog bun? Disgusting, yeah, this naked waffle, my favorite cone used to be what do you think you like most about this one? Stick your nose in it. You don't have to be in front of the camera. What does it smell like to you? It smells like waffles, blueberry waffles, great, it's a berry waffle cone, so blueberries would make sense, right? just a little bit of Flamingo Beach. I don't know why I'm caring about this.
I have backups, but I turned it on for about an hour or two this week and I really love how loud it is. very similar to Yankee Candle Pink Sands which, by the way, I bought the other day when I was shopping at Fred Meyer. My friend Meyer has some random Yankee candles and they were having a pretty decent sale. They had the Yankees on offer. I want Let's say for 14.99 I didn't buy it, but I definitely stuck my nose, my masked nose, of course, into the yankee candle, um pink sands, and I see the similarities between the two, but I feel like this one is even sweeter, which I prefer.
It's so good guys, so the notes in this one are pink summer berries, juicy orange, dewy white petals, not really much floral to my nose. In this one, it's really those juicy pink berries and sweetness, and maybe I feel like it is. like a
tropicaltype of floral the pink sands uh no no no what was it pink petal oh okay that's going to drive me crazy I know where it is up in our hallway. It comes in the same ribbed glass collection as this berry waffle cone. I'm going to have to put the name in the description box below, but there is a candle that had iridescent pink ribbed glass and it was a beautiful floral like a tropical floral that Bath Body Works made the same year they released this and I love the sun-washed petals.
No, that's not it either. Okay, I have to stop thinking about it because I'll never remember it, but anyway that's the white floral note I'm getting here, but it's very sweet. I love it. there's still a little bit of rose left so this is my homework rose petal candle here we go so this is just a very classic pink peony scent um there are other apple, melon, geranium and peach notes in here , really none of that is what I pick up, it's pink and peony. I actually have some fresh peonies in my dining room right now that ended up not opening for my wedding last Friday, so I need to remember that when I buy peonies and they are very tightly closed.
It will be many days until they open so if I don't get them beautifully open at the market I just don't need to buy them because I will never be able to get the peonies to open as fast as I need them to, but the bonus is that this week I got beautiful fresh peonies , not my bride but she did receive beautiful garden roses so don't worry she had a beautiful wedding day so I have one more candle and actually a pedestal too so I'm going to check this out and show you to you guys in the aisle again, this was the second one i got, i think i'm still waiting for two more deliveries, one from ulta and one from qbc, so, but i did it.
Pick up this pedestal, this is the one that comes with the hibiscus flower, so I bought this one on qvc, that's where you can find it again. I'll put a link below. This one is beautiful. I don't normally wear tropical. decor in my house you don't see anything tropical back here I'm not your summer tropical girl but this pedestal is, I think, one of Harry's prettiest. The photos online don't do it justice and I think this is one of the few that I probably won't spray paint. I think it looks great in silver. I have it on my kitchen counter and I love the different flowers here.
There's definitely some plumeria here. There are some beautiful ones like ferns and tropical leaves. really very beautiful um, if you are looking for a great summer pedestal, look no further, this one is beautiful and the quality is impressive. I love it. Also, I've only burned it twice, but you'll have a review of this below. Sunday too, um, the hibiscus flower, oh my, guys, it's so good, um, I really need homework and maybe you'll do it this weekend again. I haven't checked my emails. I hope they are making one for free. shipping or a flat shipping rate 10 on the homeworks website because as soon as I got this from qvc I went and I was going to order a bouquet of hibiscus flowers, but the shipping fee was uh it was a little bit it was a lot more.
What I felt comfortable spending on four candles was over twenty dollars and that's an outrageous amount for shipping. I'm just not going to pay what I can. I don't mean this in a like. in an arrogant way like I can afford it but it's the beginning I don't think this board shipping rate they have is my favorite way I think they can probably negotiate some better rates and I hope they do because I love this and i want more but initially i'm just going to order it when they do that flat rate shipping again but it's really good guys if you want to try it you can get it on qvc uh and it will come with a pedestal which i think it definitely is an advantage.
I usually think it's best to have the pedestals alone because if you don't like the candle, but this one is so good, I can't imagine anyone who doesn't like this scent, let's talk. about the aromatic notes, very quick, red hibiscus, mango slices, nectarine flower and tiara flower, it's a 50 50 tropical floral and tropical fruit, we'll talk more about it next week, it's delicious, okay guys, I have my bucket of melts, so this week, um. I made some of my Kay's bread, um, which is Mr. Kong's sweet tooth birthday cake, so this is what I came up with, uh, at K's and I asked him to make a bread for me, that's a Terrible grammar, okay, so this.
It's a mix of birthday cake, pink sugar cookie, and sugar cookie fudge, let me tell you right now, if you're ever shopping at K's, you should make this mix, it's actually really good, um, okay, and then I'm fine here, let's finish kay's. things 'cause I'm getting back on the case, so I'm melting, uh,a lot of these leftover melts I think I maybe have like six or seven left at this point, but I have marshmallow clouds on the boardwalk and this. these are just ellauh, I think these are one ounce scent shots, this one is really nice, it has a musky touch to it, um boardwalk marshmallow, I really like it a lot, I want this mixed with, I think it's birthday cake, oh , that's really nice, I really like this one, um, there's a musky touch it's a little strange not that this isn't a copy of um bath body works' summer boardwalk it's totally different there's a sweetness here but there's also a musky note that reminds me of what that marshmallow cloud or marshmallow marshmallow was, something that came out from Bath Body Works several years ago and was very good and I'm wondering if this could be the scam because they are very similar, maybe I'll send you a email and see if you can clarify that. for me because I'm curious anyway this is delicious I love it really really good birthday cake birthday cake is obviously what I have in my little concoction here but on its own it smells like birthday cake funfetti um actually probably more not necessarily funfetti more just a nice, cool, generic vanilla birthday cake, not generic in a bad way, it just smells like food, which I love.
Next we have watermelon lemonade, it smells very similar to the bath and body works version, I don't love watermelon lemonade, I just wanted to see how it compares. I never actually bought the Watermelon Lemonade Candle from Bath Body Works because I'm like, yeah, could you go overboard with this? But it smells exactly the same, so if you need something melted to go with your candles. you're that person who loves that particular scent there you go you can pick it up there and again the pink sugar cookie the pink sugar cookie also on my bread so good even better than I would say the birthday cake I want to put I want putting these two together that was creepy sorry yeah oh get out of here okay looks like I'm going to make another loaf because boardwalk marshmallow clouds and pink sugar cookie together is a must also is a must .
I bought this little slicer from k's, I think so. You can also get them on Amazon, but if you order from them anyway, I think they're only seven dollars and they're very useful for cutting your pies and your breads, loaves, lobes, here we go, yeah, who's texting me text? oh, I'm going to see my brother, yeah, I miss my brother, sorry, okay, catching z, uh, shut up, from uh aromas, now let's aromatize, um, okay, this is what I ate upstairs in my master bedroom and I really like it. It's a great scent for the bedroom. It is a scent for clothes.
This whole collection reminds me of clothing in general, but with different things added to the clothing fragrance. This is a musky laundry detergent scent. I like it. It's probably not necessarily a buyback. but it's been nice um pink sugar berry mint I've had this in my film room and also down on a couple of my warmers I love it um I have to place my oh it's so good I have to place my
bringback my bar order with lisa as soon as these are released I already have a little list going um I know I'm going to put more of this on there uh because I want more all summer long I keep looking for it.
It's absolutely delicious um in my laundry room downstairs I've been doing pillow time pillow time is very interesting because it's laundry detergent mixed with what I think is supposed to be licorice it's very interesting there's also maybe borderline herbal note on the back no I don't even know what herb it would be maybe parsley it's strange but I like this one I really liked it not enough to have put it in my club but it's good what else do we have for this week? Oh, we have many. pink sugar beer man I keep reviewing this one like it's coming out I ordered a lot of that um fiji flower oh I love me some fiji flower um ah this is a new release from the summer collection by the way It's beautiful, these pair really really well when you're burning the flour, if you're looking, you know, mix in some blue agave and melon.
Well, first of all, I have this on my warmers behind me here, my Scentsy champagne warmers, oh, it's so good. it's fresh and clean this gives me vibes of warm blue oceans and white sand beaches and maybe delicious cocktails this just smells like summer vacation to me it's really nice it's definitely sweet the melon is very noticeable here it's like what is it no melon no It's melon per se it's not watermelon it's just a very generic melon maybe all three mixed together it's very pretty I like it I like it a lot um a little bit of happy birthday because it goes very well again with my tropical flowers that I love and then um it's which yeah, yeah, because the rest of the week I was doing case stuff, so um, voids, voids, voids, oh my gosh, I have voids, good old voids, you guys are actually going to watch my voids video.
