  1. The very first one looks awesome. I love it! I also really like the label you posted for the 2nd store. The script font works with that design, but I don't care for the script font in the Painted Pony labels. Best of luck!
  2. The owner of Maple Street said they are PET about a year ago. Not sure if they've changed since then, but I have NOT noticed a difference in the clamshells over the years.
  3. I've never noticed any kind of skunky or off smell with Maple Street's clamshells. I love their quality. Even though I really like them, I think after this box, I may try to go a more sustainable route.

    FO Storage

    Like it changes - either not as strong, or maybe the prominent notes change, or goes noticably rancid.

    FO Storage

    Thanks for the feedback! I'm not going to sell sub-par products when my FO goes bad but definitely want to keep my scents going strong for as long as possible. I'd say I'm a low volume seller by design because my day job is long hours and high stress - I just like a creative outlet. At the same time, I don't want to pour money down the drain, so to speak. I will check the scents that I'm noticing a difference in....that would make sense if they're HDPE. Maybe at the very least, I will swap out my FOs that come in clear plastic even if PET.
  6. Just curious if anyone transfers their larger FO's into glass jars to prolong their shelf life. I primarily sell wax melts and it's generally low volume, so some of my FO's can sit for a while. I'm noticing some scents morphing even though they're stored in a cool, dry place and out of sunlight. I'm thinking of buying a bunch of amber glass bottles to transfer FOs into but just wanted to see if it's worth it.
  7. I sell primarily wax melts online and my best sellers are White Tea (CS), Volcano (RE) and Tobacco Caramel (FC). I also sell a lot of blends using Black Tea (FC).
  8. These are all really cute and great sounding blends too!

    I also use Candle Cocoon but I use a low percentage (I think the recommended about on the label). If I go higher, it smells cloying and fake in my melts. Using the recommended amount is key for me and smells perfect.
  10. I like them all but the first one really catches my eye more. PS I LOVE MAINE. When are you planning to move and what general area? It's really an under-rated place. I visit every year and every single year, I dream of moving there.
  11. How was the House of Intuiion candle? I've seen them on Instagram since they launched their candle line and the videos I've seen show a lot of sooting. I wonder if that's just been user issues (drafts and such). I was also turned off by their marketing on the magic candles. (What's on their website if different than your candle pictured - the images on the website say to leave the candle burning for 5-7 days - yikes).
  12. Melt the candles down in a double boiler or on a cookie sheet in the oven on a low setting and use as firestarters as mentioned already, or maybe wax melts.
  13. I've never used this but it looks interesting. True white pepper could have kind of a funky musty note, so maybe look for Black Pepper or other Peppercorn scents.
  14. Ginger & Peach. You could go really easy on the peach to sweeten up a sharp ginger.
  15. This person is probably going to notice increased traffic coming from here and while it may be a good learning experience for her to find this site, some of what is said here comes off mean-spirited. Maybe the direct links and identifying images should be removed?
