  1. Thanks so much everyone for the suggestions. I knew I was in the right place for enablers to help! 😘. CW is the first company I’ve bought from that doesn’t have any reviews on FO — and very little in scent description. It’s making it more difficult for me to decide what to order — and why I depend on THIS GROUP so much!! Trying to get some CS “reformulated” FO in wax today and am making notes on what I’m ordering from CW later this week. (Would definitely have tried the smoked ginger @Sarah S so thanks from steering me away from that in my first order— I have plenty to buy that everyone seems to agree on!) My dear husband is modifying a presto pot for me today (with a spigot) so I can turn my son’s old bedroom into candle central and keep wax and supplies out for awhile — bring on the fall/holiday scents!!
  2. After the pumpkin thread...decided I couldn’t stand it and am working on an order from CW...seriously, I need a 12- step program for candle obsessions. So, how about some input on other FO for me to try from CW. Extra thanks if you’ve tried them in 464 🙃
  3. Received CS order today and OOB — TOTALLY agree with @RedRoomGraduate “autumnal volcano” for the peppercorn pomander...LOVE the peppermint mocha, and find the white currant interesting and think it will be successful. Also re-designed Fresh coffee smells same and cranberry marmalade is now cranberry apple marmalade....it’s different and will know how much different once it’s in wax...stay tuned. Everything will have to cure!
  4. How is the wick testing going? I have recently switched from ECO to CD and use 464 wax....am personally liking the CD wick more
  5. Also agree with @NightLight — you may have used too much FO
  6. I am not a vanilla fan either and only pour for those who like it...altho I love the vanilla champagne — you have intrigued me with Cracklin Birch. Will definitely put that on my “list to try” (why oh why do I keep buying new FO 😂)
  7. By “dry” do you mean set up? I’ve never made a candle that didn’t set up overnight and I use soy. Soy always feels creamy to me - is that what you are feeling?
  8. Thanks @RedRoomGraduate I ordered the peppercorn pomander, white currant, and peppermint mocha. Can’t wait to try them!! ❤️
  9. That’s exactly what I would do — then burn 1 of each yourself and give others to close friends who aren’t surrounded by FO all the time to test. Just handed off a candle to friend yesterday to test for me...I can test burn and flame but HT is difficult.
  10. I’ve been searching on the forum for an hour and still not sure where to go — have a request for dupe for BBW fireside marshmallow. Am considering the following but don’t really want to order from everyone — so OPINIONS PLEASE! RE - Campfire Marshmallow JS - Marshmallow Fireside SOS - Campfire & Marshmallow I use 464 — any info/advice/direction greatly appreciated!
  11. I was so proud of Manda -- she told my daughter they were NOT doing wedding party favors because she doesn't agree with a party favor after she has already paid for a reception where they fed everyone! After taking everyone's advice tho, I had decided no on the floral (daffodil) and was debating between cake and vanilla champagne...so, the next wedding my daughter is in (October) i may make the offer again. And am definitely making the offer to her bestie who I think will be engaged within the year.
  12. Since I'm ordering old favorites (that CS has chosen to change😢 so now I have to retest) I was wondering if anyone has tried (or heard anything about) their new scents: Peppercorn Pomander: Peppercorn Pomander is a peppery twist on a traditional holiday fruit fragrance. Fresh cracked peppercorn blends with orange peel and mandarin for a spiced citrus treat. Tonka bean and vanilla in the base smooth out the zesty orange notes. Black pepper, clove leaf, and orange essential oils enhance the juicy citrus and piquant spice of this realistic scent. Tonka and Oud: Tonka and Oud is a complex, modern fragrance with high-end appeal. This woody scent begins with top notes of amaretto and powder as it gives way to a heart of tonka and balsam. Notes of rum, musk, and sweet, resinous oud make up the base of this intriguing fragrance. Rosemary and Sage: Indulge in some aromatherapy and surround yourself in the herbal mélange of Rosemary Sage. Cooling eucalyptus and pine notes uplift fresh green florals and rosemary, while earthy sage and cedar lend this fragrance an enticing woodsy base. An infusion of fir needle, eucalyptus, and cedar leaf essential oils reinforce the botanical beauty of this scent. Peppermint Mocha: Our Peppermint Mocha fragrance is a chocolatey delight for your senses. This signature drink fragrance blends decadent chocolate and peppermint into an irresistible treat. Notes of peppermint and a hint of coconut milk blend with rich chocolate and creamy vanilla. White Currant: White Currant is a versatile fragrance with wide appeal, thanks to the alluring balance of tart and sweet. Red currant and zesty lemon peel combine with airy ozone before giving way to a botanical heart of juniper and geranium. Black currant and just a hint of peppermint in the base reinforce the tart freshness of this year-round scent. Dulce de Leche: Dulce de Leche transforms any space into an artisanal confectionery shop filled with the warm aroma of buttery caramel. This sweet, decadent fragrance tempts your senses with notes of rich butter before giving way to a heart of luscious caramel and cream. Vanilla and tonka bean in the base reinforce the sweetness and warmth that makes Dulce de Leche such an appealing scent.
  13. Only saving grace is she didn’t talk about adding ESSENTIAL OILS to fragrance the damn thing!! 😂🙄
  14. (I thought I was clever one time...) I tried some coffee grounds...and a coffee bean...and even coffee around the top of the container “for effect” — then I stopped. Just makes a mess and screws with the burn. I’ve got enough trouble making sure my candles are burning correctly and have a nice CT/HT without adding another variable into the mix.
  15. I use this scent as a “volcano” type...for people who love that Capri scent -this is a winner. And I have to use 10% in soy
