  1. I've not put it in wax, but OOB, yes, you can smell both. It's unusual that you can actually smell the rum.
  2. Violet Candies

    I saw somewhere, I have no idea where, that one of the 5694563487380693846 vendors had a violet that reminded a reviewer of those old violet candies I had as a kid. I still buy them when I go to NYC, and I love the scent. Does anyone know where I can find that scent? I need it.
  3. ISO help...Wheat fragrance?

    I think it's BCN that has Sweetgrass and New Mown Hay. I guess when you say "wheat" I think of in the fields. If you mean bread, I'd definitely try WSP's.
  4. Freshly Baked Bread: Has anyone nailed it?

    That's interesting! I'm planning on doing some odd foodie stuff. May I ask what you're making?
  5. Freshly Baked Bread: Has anyone nailed it?

    I have! I used it in melts. I love it. You can really smell the yeast. I look forward to making different "pastries" with it. I just ordered a sample to try it. I'm always optimizing!
  6. I just had an OOB experience...

    Welcome! Please let me know what you buy! I can't wait to hear about them!

    It's exactly those scent notes. Great description.

    I'm glad I could be helpful. I love Marshmallow Fluff and it makes me sad that it's weak, because it's the only marshmallow I've tried that isn't plasticy. The Let Them Eat Cake dupe I purchased was from Fragrance Buddy. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the scent, but if not, it's not a pure foodie scent. I think the Milk one is strong enough for tarts, yes. I was surprised. However, I didn't try it in a huge area, just my studio, which is 10x10 feet. I actually turned off the warmer when clients were coming in because I wondered if they'd think it was too "milky" in there. When I tried the I Want Cake in that same space, it didn't reach the entire space. Same with Fluff. You would need to add cookies to the milk. It really does smell like warm, sweet milk. The Cake Bake and Cake Batter seem really strong OOB. I don't foresee a problem there, but I haven't put them in wax.

    NG's is Honey Bunny, you're right, and the Toffee Crunch from DS is identical to NG's, at least OOB.

    Thanks, Belinda!

    I got some great ones, but I have no idea what was OOS. I don't know how I could even remember, now that I think of it, which is too bad. I just posted about the scents somewhere else on here. I think yesterday. Let me find it. Here it is:
  12. WSP's Cucumber Violet, & Fennel. I had zero idea what this would smell like, (used in parasoy wax melts) but i took the chance. It's the first melt I've ever made that seemingly everyone who enters my house asks, "What is that?" It's definitely cucumber, but then herbal and floral in a very subtle way. But the hot and cold throw is excellent. Another winner in my house this month is WSP's Blue Agave Sugar. Everyone thinks "pina colada." It does smell like that, but not a fake, horrible pina colada mix. It's more of a freshly-made one with the real ingredients, but without the rum. It's sweet but soft, and definitely tropical. Great throw. Third is WSP's True Lilac. OOB it was cloying. After warming it, it permeated the house in a good way, and it was a realistic lilac. (Their Blooming Lilac- not so much. Lasted, like, three minutes, then died.) True lilac has great throw. Day Star's Milk Sugar Kisses. You can REALLY smell the dairy, so this is going to be a wonderful mixer. Not at all fake. Good hot throw.

    I'm so frustrated with Day Star. I know I posted something about this before, but she subbed a fragrance I wanted (because it was OOS) with a scent I already have and don't really like. She should have told me it was OOS. When I emailed her, I got no response, and that was months ago. I feel like I should get a store credit, since I don't even want the product. It makes me mad that she's happy to take my money and send out orders, but won't respond to an email. I own my own business, and I wouldn't BE in business if I treated my customers that way.

    Sorry, Goldie. I meant to tag you in my response above.

    The underlying old book smell is vanilla, but not in the sense we're used to. It's vanilla ex lignin, I've been told, which is derived from some kind of paper pulp. All of those scents are very, very subtle. We're so used to having almonds and vanilla and grass up in our faces as stand-alones. It's hard to explain, but they're all in there.
