Lets talk about wax….again! I made a small order recently made up of different scented wax bars from a company called Scents of Smell. As a wax vendor, they had been recommended to me so many times by other wax lovers it seemed rude not to try them out and see if they were as good as everyone was saying. So when my order landed the first bar I melted was called A Birthday Wish. Each bar ( included this one ) was £2.50 each.
Why A Birthday Wish? This is a combo of two scents that I’ve melted before separately so this combination really intrigued me as I would never have put them together myself.
Scents of Smell scent description. A blend of 1000 wishes and sweet birthday cake.
Packaging. Placed in a simple clear plastic sleeve with company and scent name on front, on the back general warnings and ingredients are listed.
Appearance. Shape wise think of a bar of chocolate but wider than the standard bar. Segmented, so easy to break any of the 12 squares off to use. A pale baby blue colour, with a lemon yellow trail running through it randomly.
How much to use? I used three squares in my wax warmer which was the right amount for the room it was fragrancing ( living room ). Depending on the warmer/melter used and room, this may vary.
Scent. Oh my! Once I opened this up and stuck my nose in the wrapper I knew this was the perfect scent for me. You get 1000 wishes coming through first. This has a perfume scent and feel to it ( it should as its inspired by a branded fragrance ). Sweet, floral, a touch of citrus but with a little musk. Rounded off with the most delicious, cake like smell which to me reminded me of a Victoria sponge ( think vanilla sponge, cream and jam! ) which had just been freshly cut ready to eat.
While melting. This melted evenly and quickly, and the wax pool it created had a shimmer to it which I wasn’t expecting and really looked beautiful. The scent I smelt before melting and the scent while melting were identical.
Strength & Longevity. This is a scent which is strong. When I say strong it’s not strong where its fighting with your nose, but strong in the sense of it holds its own in a room, stands out against other smells e.g food, and I could even smell this through a closed window as I opened my front door! Longevity is excellent and this scented wax bar really provides great value for money. For 3 days my 3 squares wax were melting for good duration at a time e.g 5 hours on each day, and it still continued to give a great throw of fragrance even after that.
Recommended? Lets just say this will be on my list of favourite scents this year ( its slowly growing !). I love scents that surprise me and this did. Marrying the two different scents together and it working so well blew my mind and I am totally in love with this perfume and bakery collaboration. And as a vendor Scents of Smell will be another website for me to visit to get my wax fix. Fancy trying out this scent-sational scent?
