JLCCW - Yellow Brick Road

Scent Description: None available from her website, as she had to close down to dedicate more time to her family. Upon searching teh interwebz I have come across this: a blend of lemon cupcakes, sugar cookies, and vanilla bean noel.
Cold Sniff: 4/5 Very strong lemon with a bit of bready-ness to it.
Warm Sniff: 4/5 The lemon tones down and the vanilla and sugar cookies blend with the lemon to create a pleasant foody scent.
Scent Strength: 1/5 If the lemon were stronger this would be a more prominent scent. As is, it's simply a pleasant almost-lemon scent :)
Scent Throw: 4/5 It didn't quite fill the bedroom of the apartment. Everything else it was able to reach
Melting Power: 4/5 This little bit of wax lasted about 12 hours before I took it out. I wish I weighed this before I melted it... It really doesn't seem all that big.
Repurchase: I would... but I can't. JLCCW's been closed for over a year now :( I've been saving this stuff, and I've become so obsessed with not melting it this makes two things I've melted from her in the past year LOL. The rest of stuff I've 'used' ended up being extras in a destash or I sent them to Julie :) I've entertained the idea of selling off what I have left, which is about 5 1/2 pounds. I kid you not. I just took the photo box full of JLCCW and weighed it just now. 5 lbs, 12.5 oz. And that doesn't count the full sized pies I have in a separate box alongside other loaves and pies from other vendors..
I have a problem.

  1. Thank you for sending me some JLCCW! I
    Loved the ones Lauren let me try. 5 pounds! Nice!! Glad you started melting some! May as well enjoy it before it goes bad (or you have to move with pounds and pounds of wax!).

    1. I didn't realize how much I had until I decided to weigh it on a whim! I know I didn't spend very much on this, either. I think it averages out to like 68 cents an ounce, shipped. Auuugh, why did she have to close?!
