I ended up not buying either for the same reasons @katmeltswax. I am TRYING to use up some of the stash of FO's I already have before they go bad.

I have some FO's that came with the business when I bought it 6 years ago. They still smell ok to me :)  Luckily my vanilla is not that old. My favorite vanilla is very vanilla from CS.  I did learn that the wax has to be about 200 degrees before adding it, or it doesn't incorporate well.

@franu61, my favorite vanilla is also Very Vanilla from CS.  In the almost nine years I've been making candles, I haven't ever found one I like better.  But Vanilla Bean Noel runs a close second.

@katmeltswax, seems like she said Vanilla Voodoo is from Candle Cocoon but that's off the top of my head.  I've never ordered from Candle Cocoon and don't intend to start!!!!!!!!!  :)

Yes, it is Vanilla Voodoo from Candle Cocoon.   Is the only one I use...Now you do use less % in oil than 6% as her oils are very concentrated.  Her prices are a bit higher but shipping is not expensive.

My order arrived monday, i have to say that i only like clean fragrances for myself. Im pleased with all that i ordered. The spring meadow liked to knock me out. I will start making them up tomorrow. I was pleased with how Cierra also shipped the oils, it was like they did extra. Caps on the inside of the bottles plus bagged. Took awhile for shipping but im on East Coast so it was expected.

I think I should give Candle Cocoon a try.  I want to test CD wicks (which no Canadian supplier carries!), and while Im at it...I have to try Vanilla Voodoo lol..  It's just the time factor, shipping and duty getting supplies into Canada that holds me back....but I will give it a try.
