1 Of my fav places for scent...

Good post for people who don't know about The Candle Source..:highfive:

Candle Source sells good scents...

That's 1 reason I love them. Their prices are great...

You just have to watch what you buy as far as scents.

Some will be good and strong, others will be weak.

Care to mention some of the strong ones? And which ones shouldn't be ordered? ;)

Me too a bit but I figure I've lost much more than that on FOs from other places that I've hated. I ordered all samples so I can get a feel for their scents. They have great e-bay feedback however and all my communication has been promptly answered.. so far good CS. We'll see! ;)

Thanks for the head's up. I just placed an order with them. The website sale prices are even better than ebay's. I ditto what Laura said about the Sunwashed Linen and Blueberry Cheesecake. I poured with IGI 4786 and they were very strong. The Spiced Apples and Peaches and Magnolia is great in 100% soy. Great cold and hot scent throw. The Vicks Vapor Rub was not that great in 100% soy. Didn't have much of a throw, but I only poured them a few days ago so they may get stronger.

Yeah in my opinion I think tarts are stronger but i think container would be a close comparison. But yeah my favorites that just were so strong I could stand to cut back, were the honeysuckle, downy, sunwashed linen, J&J's soothing lavender and spring rain. I loved those! They were just extremely strong! I will let you all know when I try them in votives. ;)

Hate the idea that I might sound either old or stupid, (neither really) but are you guys tellin me you're selling a candle named 'monkey farts' (?)(my kids aren't even allowed to say that word!)(LOL- but true); and do people really buy a candle that smells like Vicks? Although I cane understand the reasoning to that one. And Downy? They buy that too???:shocked2:

Yup, Yup & Yup. lol lol

Monkey farts smells so good.

Vicks really does open your nose

And Downy , smells just like clean clothes right out of the dryer. lol They do sell....:)

Clothes line is a really good seller for me. I use it as an air freshener spray also. Plus I use it in my carpet deodorizer...

Ok... Got my order and tested a bunch of tarts this week. Made with a blend of 75% KY Tart Votive and 25% KY PB and about 1oz/lb. They haven't cured for long yet but overall I'm impressed.... For the prices, their FO's are some of the best ones I've tried so far.

Orange Creamsicle- Average to strong. I blended this with some Cran. muffin FO and got a great spicy scent.

Pink Sugar- Not the strongest I've tried but I like it... not overwhelming.

Downy Clean Breeze... WHOA. STRONG. I would lighten up on this.

Buttercream- Very light

Fresh Strawberries- Awesome

Vanilla Crunch- Strong vanilla.. great for mixing.

Black Rasberry VAnilla- Very strong and true.

Thats all for now (been too busy to play much this week!) but I'll keep updating.. I have about 6 more to try. Will def. order again.
