    Nutmeg and Spice

    Candles wax used:  4630 fragrance load (%) 6.5% average cure time: 1 week Wax additives? None container: 4 oz tin wicking notes Zinc core Cold throw Very good (7.5/10) Hot Throw: Very good (8/10) Very interesting scent. I thought it would be super spicy smelling it OOB, but it has a sweet note to it as well. Almost like Christmas Hearth???

    Candles wax used: 4630 fragrance load (%): 6.25% average cure time: ~ 1 week Wax additives: none container size 4 oz tin Wick: Zinc Core Cold throw: good (8/10) Hot Throw: excellent (9/10) Nice bakery scent. Very nice lemon mixed with sugar/baked goods fragrance. Throws really well!
  3. Nice. Would be good for easy setup/take-down for craft fairs too. How much for the 8x10? Other sizes available I assume?

    Flowering Boxwood

    Candles wax used: 4630 fragrance load (%): 6.25% Container: 4 oz tin Wick: Zinc Core average cure time: 1 week Wax additives: none Cold throw: Average (5/10) revised to 6/10 Hot Throw: Average (5/10) revised to 6/10 Purchased: 2018 Pretty weak throw IMO. Nice fragrance...a mix of floral and woodsy. Shame it doesn't throw better. Slight revision....throw is better than I initially thought....still not spectacular, but I'm upgrading to a 6/10.

    Sweet Strawberry

    Candles wax used: 4630 fragrance load (%): 6.25% Container: 4 oz tin Wick: Zinc Core average cure time: 1 week Wax additives: none Cold throw: Average (6/10) Hot Throw: Average (6/10) Purchased: 2018 Smells nice OOB, but has average hot throw and has lost some of its strawberriness once in the wax. May perform better with higher loading.

    Attempted Wicking of 4630

    Yup, that's what I use. My only worry is they are not self trimming (or don't appear to be) and after seeing what my sister-in-law had on her test candle that she never trimmed....I'm starting to worry. 😓

    Attempted Wicking of 4630

    I ended up using zinc core with 4630, but it will be interesting to see how your tests work out.

    Fragrance suppliers to add.

    IMO, people can review and discuss a FO in the same thread. The point is to have the information easily accessible. Also, there is no reason the moderators should need to move threads, any user can post a new thread for a FO review in the appropriate supplier sub-forum.
