  1. I love them all, but especially the stringed lights and the bottom 2. You definitely have a gift for this.
  2. I use no additives, melts are strong as well, although, not sure I've tested them at 24hrs, but I certainly don't make them wait.
  3. I use 415 and I give mine 24 hrs.
  4. I know, right? I'm having a little anxiety to be sitting on this much wax, but, weighing the alternative of starting over in the fall with a new lot... I think if I don't, I'll wish I had.
  5. Thought I'd share an update, if anyone is interested: This batch of 415 is really nice, very consistent, good cold & hot throw. It doesn't seem as fussy as the previous batches, not having the bubble issue(so far). I've tested about 15 fragrances in 2 diff jars, only have one that struggles a little and it's a cinnamon. I like it so much I think I'm ordering another pallet of the same lot, that will get me through the whole year.
  6. I'm on my 3rd Lilac. I started with the incredible Lilac Blossoms from Snowtop, and it went away. Then I moved to Lilac from CS, which was a fantastic seller for years until I had some wicking issues(and the price increased). So, now I have just tested the very pleasing Lilac from NG, and will be adding that to my line this spring. Lilac is must have for me, a year-round best seller.
  7. Idk about brave, but definitely stubborn. Are you a 415 user?
  8. Be careful, you'll want to eat it.
  9. Have you tried White Cake from Indiana Candle Supply? It's fantastic in soy.
  10. I, also, had over 100 fragrances tested in 415 before the changes which I saw with my 2017 batch. I think I now have about 50 tested out and am weeding out some(still have some older wax for that) and trying to streamline a little bit. That change did almost cost my mental health, but I have been pretty happy with the 'new' 415 and my product, after I got my wicking figured out. My 2 batches of wax from 2018 have been very consistent. I do depend on the candles to supplement my income(hay for 25 horses), so I really didn't have a choice but to figure it out. Can't imagine starting with a new wax, I've used only 415 for 12 years. What wax did you end up going to? That all being said, I did order another pallet, wish me luck.
  11. Where do you order from? Are you happy with the recent batches? Pricing? I need to order another pallet and am checking options. Thank you
  12. I have to shout out for NG's Cranberry Relish.
  13. Yes, I am noticing price increases on almost everything, as I am getting orders together for spring fundraisers. I read somewhere that we could thank the tariffs and the fire(s?) in Europe that has affected the raw ingredients in fragrance oils.
