Weekly Empties

Hi ! This is actually 2 weeks worth of melting buuut it's only the empty stuff, can you believe how much I melted ? I'm quite proud of myself hehe

Front Porch - Sweet Dreams
This scent is sooo awesome. It's a blend of Pink Sugar,lavender and coconut cream. I could mostly smell lavender with a sugary touch. I just love it, so glad I have another 4 pack ! Strong throw and lasted about 6 hours

Front Porch - Lemon Marshmallow
The king of all lemon tarts in my opinion lol. Just a perfect lemon scent with gooey marshmallow. I will repurchase this over and over..and over. Strong throw and lasted about 6-7 hours

Front Porch - Sugar Mallow Cookies
Yummy ! I really like almost all of Front Porch's Cookies scent and this wasn't an exception. It was really sweet as you can expect from such a name but not the ''heavy'' type of sweet smell, like caramel can sometimes be. Medium throw and lasted about 5 hours.

Front Porch - Black Raspberry Marshmallow 
Oh goood ! I'm in love with this ! A very fruity and sharp raspberry toned down by the sweetness of marhsmallow. This was just heavenly, I wish I had another one :( Strong throw and lasted about 4 tealights (can you believe it ?!)

Front Porch - Wintery Candied Apple
I'm pretty sure I got this in a sampler because I HATE apple scents. But I'm trying to melt my stash so 2 days ago before going to bed I was looking for something to melt in my bedroom, going through my Front Porch singles and found that...I just thought at least if I don't like I'll be sleeping lol. I woke up to this very soothing and sweet scent, what a surprise lol ! Well, it actually doesn't really smell like apples, which is good. It's more of a soapy and comforting kind of scent. Medium throw and lasted about 8 hours.

Closet Full of Wax - Red Velvet Cake
A very buttery and sweet scent. It's different from your average Birthday Cake type scent which I like a lot too. Red Velvet is a lot creamier. I think there is supposed to be a chocolate note but I couldn't smell it at all while it was melting. Light-medium throw and lasted about 4-5 hours

Closet Full of Wax - Bubble Gum  (mini sample)
My first Bubble Gum tart, yay ! I'm not sure how much I liked it though, it's just a bit too artificial for me I think. I bet it would be great mixed with Cotton Candy or something. Light throw and lasted about 3 hours

Closet Full of Wax - Kiss and Tell 
Once again this smells a bit too artificial for my liking, it's very very fruity but you can't really detect any fruit in particular. Light-medium throw and lasted about 3 hours

Closet Full of Wax - Pink Sugar Frosted Cookies
I could not smell this at all :( The bag was ripped though so that might be why

Closet Full of Wax - Peeps (mini sample)
Marshmallow mixed with something else I can't remember lol. I've rarely encountered marshmallow scents that are strong on themselves and this was not an exception. Light throw and lasted about 2 hours

Closet Full of Wax - Pink Sugar 
Oh so good ! I don't think I could ever get tired of Pink Sugar. Hers is very true to the original perfume and I love that ! Strong throw and lasted about 3 tealights.

Closet Full of Wax - Vanilla Silk
A very nice scent for a bedroom, it's more of a background scent which I can still appreciate. If you went out of the room and came back you could definitely smell it though ! Lasted about 6 hours

Granny's Kountry Candles - Best Friends
I could smell the strawberry mixed with other tropical fruit, delish ! Medium throw and lasted about 6 hours

Granny's Kountry Candles - Island Mango
A very clean but fruity scent. I melted it in the bathroom and it was quite nice ! I could smell the mango. Strong throw and lasted about 3 tealights

Granny's Kountry Candles - Headache Relief
While I don't think this helped with my headaches it's still a nice herbal-spa scent ! Medium throw and lasted over 7 hours.

Granny's Kountry Candles - Big Girl Panties 
On cold sniff I smelled something fruity but when melting all I could smell was baby powder..weird. Strong throw and switched it out after 1 hour

Granny's Kountry Candles - Bedtime Bath
Well I put this in the warmer then fell asleep... I woke up and couldn't smell anything haha. 

Country Home Scent - Vanilla Love Dust
Ugh this was horrible ! Chocolate mixed with vanilla..awful lol.Chocolate scents just aren't for me. It was super strong and I poured it out after 1 hour

Country Home Scent - Snow Angels
Very nice and fruity. Smelled a bit like berries but I could be totally wrong lol. Medium throw and lasted about 4 hours

Orchid Lake Candles - Zesty Lemon Zucchini
Such a great scent !! Zucchini bread is really a hit or miss with me and this was definitely a hit ! Super creamy and mixed with the lemon it's just awesome. I never thought they could compliment each other so well ! Strong throw and lasted about 6 hours

Orchid Lake Candles -  Toasty Coconut 
Sooo good ! I just love coconut scents especially when they're ''toasted''. Medium throw and lasted about 4 hours

Orchid Lake Candles - Toasty Mallow Zucchini
My sample was so small that it didn't give off much scent..I'm sure if you had a regular tart it would be awesome though because it smelled really good and strong on cold sniff.

The Bathing Garden - The Masquerade
Clean and sweet, I feel this would be better in body products though ! Still enjoyed it but it's not a favorite. Medium-strong throw and lasted 3 tealights

Sugar & Spice Gourmet - Wildberry Mousse
Wildberry Mousse is far from being one of my favorite scent, I find it too generic and overly sweet. That being said this was a pretty good one ! Strong throw and lasted over 6 hours.

What's your favorite scent from my empties ??

  1. Thanks for introducing me to some Front Porch ones that I haven't tried!

  2. I Loooooooved Lemon Marshmallow but I think I liked Front Porch's Lemon Bliss or Lemon Cookies better. All three are similar but it was either the Bliss or the Cookies that wowed me even more. Even while recently enjoying Sweet Fixations lemon scents, I was craving the Front Porch versions.


    1. I know right ? Nothing compares to Front Porch's Lemon scents ! I tried Lemon Cookies but there was a creaminess missing for me, I haven't tried Lemon Bliss though so I'll make sure to get that next time I order :)
