  1. I like their Summer Scoop North Pole Alpine Cheer Lemon Sugar Cookie Bayberry and Silver Oak Sugared Pralines Raw Sugar Mandarin twisted Cinnamon Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow-smells the same as the one from FB and Aztec Pumpkin Gingerbread Pumpkin Apple Butter-the same as the one from NG Oatmeal cookie-smells good OOB Nutmeg and Spice-smells good OOB Coconut Creme
  2. @GailC, I'm happy they finally started having some descriptions too! Do you use any of their oils? I have some samples but have never put them in wax. I gave a bunch away on more than one occasion simply because I didn't know how to describe the scent.
  3. JS has some good coffee scents and so does ICS. I love Snickers Coffee, Caramel Cinnamon Latte, Coffee and Ice Cream from JS. I also love French Vanilla Latte and Brazilian Coffee and Pure Cane from Aztec. Snickerdoodle Latte from NG is also good. If I'm not mistaken Hazelnut coffee from ICS is also good but I can't really remember.
  4. I'll try that. Which mold release do you recommend? I've never used that. Thank you!
  5. Are your molds with the top of the candle facing up? How would I put one in there with the top of the candle down?
  6. I think I have some wick pins but I'm not sure how to rig one. Are you saying before the wax gets completely hard to push a wick pin or skewer in through the bottom to make the hole? I'm completely oblivious as to how to do this obviously LOL! That would be a lot easier though. I hadn't even thought about using wick pins. Thank you for that reminder! I always think of the hardest ways to do something when there's usually a much simpler way.
  7. Does this smell similar to Vanilla Bean Noel or Mrs Claus Cookies from NG? I have a sample order going on at BC and might pick up a sample of it.
  8. I bought some grubby pillar molds and want to attempt making some. This is probably a dumb question but I'm guessing when you take the candle out of the mold you have to use a drill to drill a hole in the bottom for the wick. Is there a drill bit or drill that works best for this? Thanks for any help!
  9. You're welcome! I don't think you'll be disappointed in any of those places.
  10. What other Pumpkin Cheesecake FO's have you tried? I don't think I've tried this one but I might actually have it somewhere LOL! I bought some from Aztec and it's ok and then bought some from Bulk but haven't put it in wax yet. Thinking of blending my own.
  11. FB is Fragrance Buddy JS-Just Scent ICS-Indiana Candle Supply TCS-The Candle Source, Texas Candle Supply or The Candlemakers Store. My guess would be The Candle Source. Hope this helps!
  12. I was sick about this too. I love this oil! Maybe we could have it duped somewhere? ICS turtle brownie is very similar so I'm thinking you could take that and add a little more chocolate to it and come up with a very close scent.
  13. I'd go ahead and try it myself to make sure. Like you said, scent is subjective. Let us know what you think!
  14. I don't think I've used buy aroma beads, but I have used Cajun's and never had a problem with them other than it takes them longer to soak up and you have to cook them longer. I did have a couple of customers say their freshener melted in the heat but as far as I know that's the only ones in about 6 years of doing this. I've never had one of my own melt and we have extremely hot weather here. The first one that melted was probably from Buy It Ship It when they had decent beads. The second one was from Plastic Pellets 4 Fun.
