denetteb Posted August 22, 2014 Share Posted August 22, 2014 I know this makes me a Nosy Rosy...but I just love hearing about what others are pouring and testing! A couple of weeks ago, I poured a handful of candles and I have begun to test them and plan to continue to test this weekend. I use 4627 wax and HTP wicks. I am quite new to candle making and only make for myself. This is what I am testing: 4 oz. Mason jar (the squat ones)BCN Buttercream Crunch - have not lit this one yet, but am very excited to as the CT is quite niceAHRE Blueberry Muffin (SnC) - I have made melts and b&b with this FO, but never candles. The CT is very strong. I didn't care for the melts that I made with this one because I felt that the fragrance burned off too quick. I am hoping that I can get better longevity with a candle.8 oz. Square Mason jarCS Apple Harvest - I made a 4 oz. mason of this one last year and LOVE LOVE LOVED it!! I have a ridiculous number of apple FOs (I am on the hunt for a dupe of Salt City Candle's Baked Apple - have not found it yet), and this one is my favorite so far! I need to get this in a larger size.ICS Bear Claws - very nice in the melts that I made, and great CTFB Pumpkin Pecan Waffles - I am burning this one now and OH WOW! I don't even have a full melt pool yet and I can smell it all throughout my top and middle levels of my home. I have not sniffed the BBW version of this scent, but I quite like this one! DS Sweet Pumpkin - I think this will be the next one I light as I am curious about the HT...CT is good. If it performs well, I plan to use it in my blends (thinking of blending it with cinnamon bun and dupe BBW's Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll...yum)!Mini Aluminum Loaf PanDS Peach Jam Cheesecake - I burned this one yesterday and really liked it! The HT was very good! I don't detect a lot of cheesecake in this one, but more of a smooth coconut note with sweet peach jam. When I poured all these candles, I poured this one right after CS Apple Harvest and my kitchen smelled amazing! I want to try blending these two together to get an apples and peaches scent.DS Blackberry Jam Butter Cookie - the HT and CT on this one was great, however, I just don't think this fragrance is for me. I LOVE all things foodie, but there is something about this one that I just don't like. I wish I could put my finger on what it is....BBW Small 4 oz. jar (I cleaned a couple out to reuse)AHRE Kettle Corn - hands down the best kettle corn fragrance I have tried...so yummy!! I have not tested the candle yet, but in melts it performs wonderfully! I hope everyone has a great weekend! 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
