Lasting Scent Candles - Caribbean Cupcake
Scent Description: Island fruits, buttery cake batter.
Date Received: April 8, 2016
Weight Melted: 0.9 oz
Location of Warmer: Living room, in tealight warmer
Cold Sniff: 4/5 A pleasing, tropical cake blend that is perfect for the end of summer heat!
Warm Sniff: 4/5 No surprises once this was melted. Well... there was a surprise, but not in the scent that was presented to me.
Scent Strength: 2.5/3
Scent Throw: >3/3 This filled the entire living room, bedroom, hallway, and part of the kitchen/dining area.
Melting Power: ?/5 More on this in just a moment.
Repurchase: Unfortunately, no. While this was melting I noticed a developing headache that only got worse as time went on. After some troubleshooting, I theorized that my headache was due to the wax. After some trial and error (and some much regretted attempts at melting this scent again) I can conclude that something about this scent gives me migraine level headaches. It's been several days since I last tried to melt this tart, and I'm still dealing with the aftereffects. I'm really bummed because 1. I really loved this scent, and 2. I had finally eradicated my headaches for several weeks before melting this.
I've never had wax that's given me a headache before, so I hope that this was just a one-off thing and I haven't unleashed a beast on my sinuses and brain.
