Enabler(s) Alert!!


Recommended Posts

I thought I was on their mailing list, but for some reason didn't get a Tennessee Candles newsletter with the $1 sample sale--maybe somebody was trying to keep me from needless spending.

But thanks to someone here posting about the sale, I just ordered 106 samples!!! I use a couple of items from there and figured this is definitely the time to try out anything that sounds even a little bit tempting.

So thanks for enabling my addiction--I'll try to pass it along when I know something!!!

Any chance of you being done pouring before the sale goes off? :laugh2:

I'm getting my order together still- I have a friend who I'm waiting for to give me a list of what she wants (cause she'll pay for hers lol).

If anyone has a list of "can't live withouts" and "throws so hard it knocked me over" for soy, let me know!!!

Missy, they actually carry quite a few more than that!! On the first set of pages (A-D or whatever), I started out clicking on everything I wanted--until I realized there were over 70 FOs in that one set--and they had 4 sets. They didn't all have nearly that many, but I'd guess there were at least 150. I was trying to keep it to 100 or I would have just ordered all of them.

And Kristi, I'm afraid I may not even get to start testing before the sale goes off--I would think Friday would probably be the earliest I could expect the order to come in and I have plans for this weekend--so I can't be of much help, particularly since I only use 25% soy.

I do know that their Chestnuts & Brown Sugar is great--was my best seller over the Christmas season, and the Butterscotch Brulee smells fantastic--but for some reason didn't sell for me.

Do you have to call to get the sale price? When I went to the shopping cart, it still said $2 per 1oz sample. I usually get their newsletter....dang it....(flipping through emails now).

Anybody have the answer? :undecided

I tried some of their samples in paraffin. Here's what I got done so far:

Butterscotch brulee: HOLY COW!! I used 1 oz pp and it was a BIG mistake. I had a migraine all night it was soooo strong. Smells great, but Im thinking that 1/2 oz pp would've worked. I made melts with it and don't even have to light them to fragrance the room at the 1 oz pp ratio. It's sold out now though. :(

Midsummer's night : very good dupe. I used 1/2 oz pp and they have both a good CT AND HT.

Moonlight Path: Not an exact dupe but they smell pretty anyway. Used 1 oz pp on this one.

Apples and Cinnamon: 1/2 oz pp on this one and it smells deliscious.

I ordered too many to remember right now but I wasn't impressed with the initial smell on a lot of them so I'll have to lete you guys know after I make some more candles

I can't resist buying scents. It seems to be such an addiction that there needs to be a scents anonymous message board. I have tons and tons of fragrances and only use a select few. It is sooooooo hard. One of my New Year's resolution is not to buy online unless I really really really need something.
