    Candles, melts
  1. I found another thread that mentioned JS Grandma's Berry Griddlecakes being the same, but it was from 2006-2007 and JS now refers to it as Country Berry Hotcakes (not sure if it's been reformulated of anything in the meantime)
  2. Are you referring to this thread? Wait - disregard! I re-read and see that you said it is NOT Country Berry Hotcakes. UGH. Sorry.
  3. It happens even with the most expensive and sought after candles on the retail shelves. I don't think anyone notices (aside from us!)
  4. Heaven Help ME!

    Good luck! I'm only about 2-3 years in and it's already become like an addiction. I think just the creative outlet of it all.
  5. Yeah, not to be all conspiracy-theorist, it does seem weird that not a single one of their scents is impacted, when pretty much the largest manufacturer in the world has something like this happen. Maple Street's comments are also suspect to me, because he claimed to have 4 suppliers and they've all duped each other's scents. That may be true, but we all know that there can and will be slight nuances between any duped scent. It seems unlikely to be spot-on for every single application their FOs are used in.
  6. Good to know. I think I'm good on FO's for a while (doing my year-end inventory pretty much scared me straight! Lol). I have to look at everything again and maybe get some safety stock of my good sellers across all suppliers ....just in case. Luckily, I'm pretty low volume.
  7. Well this is quite the list of impacted FO's from RE....They just posted this on facebook a while ago and I think also sent out an email.

  8. Uncut Fragrance oil suppliers

    Yes, a very good friend of mine has allergic reactions to soy and rarely burns candles since so many have have some sort of blend. She was gifted what she thought was a paraffin candle and her skin got really itchy and dry eyes. She called the company and they confirmed they use a paraffin-soy blend in that candle.
  9. Coffee fragrance oil

    Have you tried RE Coffee House? I don't smell burnt popcorn with coffee scents but most smell completely fake to me. My best friend has been asking for coffee scents since day 1, so she's my go-to Coffee tester and CH is her favorite. She also likes CandleScience Coffee and Hazelnut Coffee. I've sent her a variety of NG (neither of us like them) and also SweetCakes (love the cappuccino scent but can't get a throw from it). Coffee scents tend to smell super fake to me but if I stick to about 6.5% for Coffee House, it is perfect. Adding more brings out the fake smell. I use parasoy pillar wax for melts and I've used a blend of 6006-464 for candles. (Although I mostly make melts)
  10. Awesome! The goo gone has a strong smell too and it dissipates after a little while. I'm sure it works faster than overnight too, but I just like leaving it overnight and peeling the labels off in the morning. Good luck! I used this method a lot when I re-branded and needed to relabel a ton of melts. It was such a pain but I wanted to change the look of everything all at once.
  11. Goo gone! I rip a square of paper towel, put Goo Gone on it and place the square of soaked paper towel over the label and let it sit over night. The label or any remnants should come right off no problem. I don't color my wax and I use a pillar wax that pops right out, so I don't have good advice for getting the wax and scent out. :-(
  12. Have you tried any of these RE FO's?

    Here's the ones I have used. I've made parasoy melts with them, so that's the experience I'm basing this on. Bonfire Bliss - It's alright - I don't understand all of the rave reviews. They may have changed it over the years, because it doesn't smell like a bonfire to me at all, or it may be my wax. I thought I loved it when I first smelled it but I think the rave reviews were swaying me lol. There's something about it that just seems overly synthetic to me. Cardamom Cedar Blossom - I like this scent, it's kind of fresh and spicy. Coffee House - I really like this one! Good coffee scent, good throw. Elderflower & Moss - haven't put this in wax yet, but OOB it smells really nice. It's on my list, pleasant spa-type scent to my nose. Fig & Cassis - I LOVE this. It smells very familiar to me and I can't put my finger on it. But it's one of my favorites, great throw and kind of a complex (or maybe just hard to describe) scent. Redwood - I really like this scent, but I wish it was a little more woodsy and less soapy. It may be the way it performs with my wax, but there's a definite soap feel I get when melting this and I did also have a customer leave that in a review as well. (Edit: not a literal soap feel, just what the scent makes me think of)
  13. Winter Wonderland Dupe?

    I'm sorry that I'm not familiar with the Peaks version but have you tried Flaming Candle? I have their version and I love it! Just not sure if it's supposed to be the same thing.
  14. Just want to chime in and agree that NG has very reasonable shipping. It's too bad I'm not in love with a lot of their FOs. They're fine, I just like FC and RE more, with the exception of a good handful or two.
  15. NG 464

    I don't really use 464 but I have seen comments here and there that the manufacturer is out of stock. I don't recall the reason given, but I saw a post maybe last week about it.
