Small Crosscreek Country Candles Haul

 Hi !

So I ordered the ''U Pick Tart Sampler'' from Crosscreek Country Candles because I really wanted to try this company since shipping to Canada wasn't too expensive but didn't want to place a huge order because you never know if you're gonna like the wax or not ! The sampler was $11 for 10 scalloped tarts, a great way to try out different scents. I ordered on November 30 and got my order today, December 21. The owner,Deana, was really nice when I messaged her about some shipping questions I had.

Here's what I got :

Bunny Patch - Creamy orange pound cake layered with gooey marshmallow
This smells so good ! I've been on an orange kick lately and this one is my favorite so far !

Gummi Bear Peeps - So I couldn't resist not making a peeps blend with the gummi bears ! Sweet and fruity dipped in marshmallow
Oddly enough this smells kinda perfumey to me, like a sweet and fruity perfume. I don't really smell the marshmallow. Strong on cold throw

Frosted Donut - A moist & fluffy doughnut covered with a berry flavor icing 
All I smell is mint and berries...there's no bakery note whatsoever, I'm wondering if she maybe sent the wrong one ! 

Eat your heart out - Big juicy strawberries dipped in creamy marshmallow
Well, we can see a theme here with the marshmallow ! This one is really yummy, you can smell both the strawberry and the marshmallow

Cuppa Chai - This fragrance captures the deliciously smooth blend of spices including cinnamon,clove,nutmeg and hints of ginger along with creamy vanilla with butter and ripe
pumpkin..a unique twist of traditional chai tea !
Chai Latté is my favorite drink ever,I just love the comforting smell and taste so I've been trying to get a tart that would smell like that ! I've tried Ten Digits Creations Chai Tea and didn't like it (I still have 3 tarts left of that scent..), so I was kind of anxious about this one, but it's a lot better than TDC version, it doesn't smell exactly like a chai latte but it's pretty close !

Coconut Milk & Lavender - A beautiful and enticing blend of lavender with silky French Vanilla infused with rich coconut milk and hints of musk
This one smells a lot like Front Porch Lavender Sugar Cookie Dough Bread which I love ! I don't have one to compare (though a 4 pack is on its way!) but I think this one is a little bit less sweet. A very creamy lavender with a strong cold throw

Funnel Fried Twinkies - Anyone care for a deep fried funnel cake battered twinkie on a stick ? This popular carnival treat can now be had anytime you want without all calories
I've never had a fried Twinkies but I'm pretty sure it doesn't smell like that.It smells like a vanilla cake with a touch of caramel but I don't get the ''fried'' note at all

Falling in Love - This fragrance is a blend of sweet vanilla top notes,with a floral heart and a blackberry musk base with a touch of amber
This smells heavenly ! It's a really complex scent,not floral..not fruity..not musky and not foody..It's a little bit of everything ! 

It's a Noel Holiday - Vanilla Bean Noel spiked with creamy eggnog,inviting cheer to all!
Oh no, not another eggnog scent lol ! The VBN definitely tones down the eggnog,which is good since I discovered I don't really like that scent. You can still smell both scents easily.

Pink Romance - Think pink sugar wrapped up in satin sheets-truly romantic and lovely !
Lovely fragrance, pink sugar with floral and musky notes !

So this is all I got, she didn't include any freebie with my order but my envelope was packed pretty tight so ! My favorites from cold sniff are Falling in Love and Bunny Patch,pretty unique scents. I'm going to let these cure for a while and will review once I melt them :)

Have you tried Crosscreek Country Candles ?

  1. I haven't tried this vendor but have heard some good things! Looking forward to your melt reviews.

  2. I haven't tried this vendor either but some of these do sound interesting. That Twinkies one sounds yummy even if it doesn't have the 'fried' note. And some of the others I was like 'Oooh, WANT!' lol


    1. Yes they're all really good ! Let me know if you try it :)

  3. I emailed you about the blog sale :)
