Rosegirls - Strawberry Pancake Batter

Cold Sniff: 4/5 This wax is a year and a half old, but I still love the smell as much as I did the first time I sniffed it. Sweet, bready strawberries.
Warm Sniff: 4/5 There were no surprises when melting this.
Scent Strength: 1/3 This is a very pleasant background-type scent. I enjoyed it very much.
Scent Throw: 4/5 The only room this failed to extend to was the bedroom. That's okay with me, because while I was melting it I was in the kitchen and living room area unpacking boxes.
Melting Power: ?/3 I melted this for 3 hours before I noticed the smell had completely vanished. This was the first thing I melted with the new warmer, so I'm not sure how much of it was the fact that I have a different type of warmer (bulb) and how much is due to the wax just being old.
Repurchase: Yes, though I'm currently on a rather strict no-buy as we're trying to use up a lot of things we have so we don't have to throw out as much when we move.
"But Liz," you ask, "I thought you just moved!" Why yes, yes I did! M joined the military last year, and if any of you know how the military works, it's a lot of moving. In May he will finish some training and we will most likely be stationed overseas, and there are very uptight restrictions on what can and cannot be brought with us. That includes a very low overall weight limit which we are currently over. I'm concerned about all of my nail polishes. I don't wanna leave them in the States for 3+ years! T__T


  1. Interesting scent I'd never heard of from Rosegirls.

    That's exciting about possibly living overseas. Do you guys have any say in where he ends up?


  2. Hoping the move goes smoothly. Like Deb, I would love to know where you end up. At least you know there is an end in sight from the GA rain :-} my friend Ashley moved from Turkey to Japan (Air Force) with only one nail polish casualty out of her hoard. Not bad but it was a favorite. :-/ 1 1/2 year old RG! It did decently well for all that.

  3. Quite interesting indeed! Never heard of this one. OH NO! The thought of leaving your polishes behind, aghhhh! I will keep them safe for you. :P
