    WSP June 26 20% sale

    Hmmm I can try! I really like it. It's sweet, but not cloying. The sandalwood/birchwood grounds it nicely, I think.

    Do you keep an FO journal?

    I kind of use a journal. I use it to quickly jot down notes and such, how much dye I used and the like. But a month or so ago I discovered Microsoft's OneNote and I love it. I use it to organize everything candle related. It has phone app versions as well so I can have my notes up anywhere. You can upload pictures to it. It's great. I still use my regular journal/notebook, but I then transcribe everything to OneNote.

    35% off sounds great. Is there a particular time of year this tends to happen or is it a surprise?

    It's soooo goood. I did just about the same thing. 🤣 Picked up the honeysuckle hollow... Came home to my Bramble Berry order waiting on the porch with a bottle of Honeysuckle in it... They smell fairly different at least!

    WSP June 26 20% sale

    I wish I was as strong willed as some of you. Went in store and ended up with: Gingham apple Vanilla Birch Honeysuckle Hollow Honeyed Pineapple Pumpkin, Graham Cracker Latte Jelly Doughnut Lilac in Bloom Forever Red Elderflower Blossoms & Quince Tuscan Cedarwood Iced Tea Twist I really wanted to pick up rice milk & cardamom but it was $11 for 2oz. Normally $14. Yikes. Smelled great though.

    Additional monthly Aztec coupon for June*

    Oh? I didn't get an email about that. I didn't even notice the price differences!
  7. *IF you already used it before they moved to their new website. They're letting you use it again as the coupons aren't linked between the old site and the new site.

    WSP June 26 20% sale

    Oh dear. I just told myself that I didn’t need to buy anymore FOs for a few weeks probably. Ha. I recommend: cinnamon & sage, fisherman (anise), desert lime & cucumber, baked bread, hello sugar, and incense & oud. I think I’m going to pick up jelly donut, chocolate lavender, caramel woods, graham cracker latte...

    FO Companies

    Haha! I have some FOs from FB and Aztec. I also have a 'wishlist' of oh, 21 different companies 🤣 Cajun's is one I haven't checked out yet though.
  10. Testing this out via candle right now! I think I may have to play around with the wick size to get a bit of a better throw out of it. But, the orange is definitely more prominent. It's still fairly light and simple. It's fairly pleasant. I like it!

    FO Companies

    Hoo boy. I'm still testing and working things out, but it's exceptionally hard not to just buy everything from every recommended supplier on here. Ideally my main suppliers would be Nature's Garden, Wholesale Supplies Plus and Bulk Apothecary due to my proximity to them, but actually going to the places is difficult due to them not being open on weekends 😭 Nonetheless I'm currently very pleased with Brambleberry, Flaming Candle, Texas Candle Supply and Candle Cocoon. I'm rather fond of NG, WSP and Candle Science as well, but I only have a handful of fragrance oils from them. Need more to form a solid opinion of course, lol. I just splurged on a bunch of samples from Lone Star from their sale. After I test out the candles I made I'll see how I feel about them. It is waaay too fun collecting different scents.

    Lonestar Sample Sale

    I'm signed up for their newsletters and I got zip. The only way I found out about the sale was seeing someone mention it on here.

    Lonestar Sample Sale

    I think it ended on the 12th :[
  14. I feel like this a bit of a silly question, but I haven’t been able to find an answer by searching around. I know that trimming wicks to 1/4” is generally optimal. But I’ve been wondering about wicks that curl after an initial burn. Do you treat them as if the wick was straight when trimming or do you account for the bit of curl and give them a bit of leeway?
  15. I picked this up during the 50% off 1oz sale because I was also curious of the bad reviews. Oob it's really not that bad. Cedar-y. A hint of orange. Nothing amazing but I certainly don't find it bad. I think it would work well as a mixer or if someone is just looking for a simple, non-complex scent. I'll probably make a few small candles of it and see how I like it.
