Fo's From Alabaster?


Recommended Posts

I did a search and there isn't too much talk on here about Alabaster's FO's. I've never ordered from them, but I've been looking at their website and their FO prices are really decent.

Any rec's for good strong throwers I should try? I use soy wax for containers and a para-soy blend for melts and pillars. I'm mostly wondering about their Vanilla Grapefruit and Wild Oats & Honey. Anybody try those?

TIA! :highfive:

One of my biggest sellers is Kudzu and their Brown Sugar & Fig from them...I am not a fan of the Brown Sugar one though my I have customers that love it.....I also love their Pink(Type), and their Sunflowers..smells like the perfume....and love their Love spell, and they also have an awesome Blueberry Pie and Blueberry cheesecake.

I just placed my first order with Alabaster today so I am glad to see this post. I got a few 1 oz samples to try, mainly VS dupes but also the Vanilla Grapefruit and Birthday Cake. I wish I knew they would send free samples :undecided I ordered 7 to test for quality before ordering larger quantites. Oh well, I still can't wait to get them :D

I second the Brown Sugar & Fig. OOB it smelled really light to me and I wasn't even sure I'd pour it. Someone suggested that I give it a try and it actually has an amazing throw. I was very surprised. I use J223 and have also found Sweet Cotton and Mulled Cider to be very strong.

Here are some of the ones I use from there--I know there are more but I can't remember right now!!

Alabama Kudzu

Apple Pie

Birthday Cake

Black Raspberry Vanilla--I tested several and this one threw the best in my wax blend

Caribbean Coconut

Cinnamon Sticks--Absolutely fantastic


Sweet Cotton


Mulled Cider--A best seller in the fall and winter

Muscadine--One of my best sellers year-round

Papaya Mango


Jolly Rancher Watermelon--I think I saw this one on clearance so I'm afraid it might be discontinued--I hope not because I tested lots of watermelons and this was the best thrower for me!

Wine & Roses--I don't personally like rose FOs, but it's strong and several people buy it

My one and only experience with Alabaster was short of a nightmare but in the midst if their 4 screw ups on one order, I will say the Jamaica Me Crazy smells good. I don't know how their vanilla velour is because it's what I ordered and got Jamaica Me Crazy instead. I KNOW they sound alot alike and I can totally understand how they got confused though :lipsrseal

I am glad everyone else has had a good experience with them though.


p.s. I have kudzu from ICS and its FABULOUS!!! I am surprised I don't see more talk about this one.
