Haul - Candles From The Keeping Room March 2015

Warning: Picture Heavy!!
Ooooo, aaaaaah! Wax porn!! LOL!
What's that? You're reminding me that I'm trying to melt through my wax for our impeding move, NOT buy more? I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of MY WAX, BUAHAHAHAHAA!
This wasn't planned in the least. I'd woken up last Saturday morning and was doing my normal Internet rounds - Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and various other websites that pertain to my current interests. I refreshed Facebook for whatever reason and noticed that Carol had posted that 'the website is now open for ordering' JUST NOW. Without thinking about it I rushed over to the website and put whatever I saw that I liked in my cart (I was admittedly faster and more panicked than I should have been, turns out I had plenty of time!). After I had everything I wanted, I woke M up and asked him to give me a limit on how much, if any, I could spend. Then I sifted through whatever was in my cart and narrowed it down to what you will see shortly.

 Eeeee! I think I got a nice variety of items.
 Freebies! You can really tell Carol put stuff in here she thought I would like based off of what I'd ordered.
On to what I got! I'll include (if available) the scent description for each scent from Carol's website.
Pink Lilac and Willow: Blended notes of blue willow, water lilies, lilac blossoms, muguet, linden blossoms, wild bamboo, magnolia fields, mandarin leaf nuances, and subtle musk

Frosted Sugar Cookie: A sweet sugar cookie with lots of sweet icing on top.
Very Bery Twist: A fresh green & fruity blend of sweet berries.  With top notes of strawberry, raspberry and cranberry with a subtle hint of floral and woodsy, musky and vanilla bottom notes.

Birthday Cake: A sweet vanilla cake with out the hints of cherry like white cake. This is a more true white cake with sweet icing.

Christmas Wish: Blend of pine, orange and spices
Fairy Garden: Juicy apple bits and fully fragrant orange blossoms combined with tart cranberries, mulberries and blackberries. Joining in the fruity explosion is a juicy strawberry puree dancing on a base of sweet vanilla spun sugar.

Fresh Picked Strawberry: Realistic strawberry scent.
Serendipity Pomegranate: N/A. Pretty self explanatory, though. :)
After seeing both Julie and Sunnee's posts about Carol's Fresh Picked Strawberry tarts, I knew I had to get one. To give you an idea of how early I was to this party, all of the strawberries, in both 4 oz and 8 oz varieties, were still available. I talked myself down from two packs to one, though. It left me room to try out other scents :)
Strawberry Passion: Rich ripened strawberry fragrance with bottom notes of cotton candy and french vanilla.
Coconut Milk & Lavender: A sweet blend of coconut milk and lavender. Changes the lavender to almost a tropical flower.
Twinkie Noel: Our own blend of sweet twinkie , vanilla bean noel and a little magic to give you this sweet designer bakery treat.
Berrylicious: A delicious blend of many berries with a touch of cake and sweet icing.
Kissing in the Berry Patch: Ripe juicy raspberry, white grapes, juicy blueberries and blackberries.  Hints of fresh green, vanilla bean, soft musk and spun sugar complete this sinfully sweet delight!
Sweet Lavender Cream: Our blend of our sweet lavender, vanilla. A sweet cream and a touch of sugar..sweet and mellow..will fill your room-seasonal
Island Girl: a blend of tropical fruits..a hint of citrus and a blast of cherry..makes you say Bada Bing.
Blue Hawaiian: Blue Hawaiian begins with mouth-watering top notes of juicy orange, lemon, and maraschino cherries; followed by tangy pineapple, acai berry, and sea spray; well rounded with base notes of sweet coconut, vanilla rum, and fresh ozonic notes

On to my samples! :) No scent descriptions here, as I can't find any on the site.

Lavender Cream Peppermint, Cherry Blossoms, Honey Bee

Gingered Peach (BBW Type), Spun Kiwi Raspberry, Almost Paradise

Cashmere Glow (BBW Type), Apricot & Honey, Strawberry Raspberry Torte

Wild Passionfruit (Yankee Type), Blackberry Musk, Citrus Sorbet

So that's it! This was my first CFTKR order, even though her stuff makes up more than half my stash thanks to destashes. 
Of the scents I bought myself, I'm most looking forward to is Kissing in the Berry Patch. Of the samples it's Blackberry Musk.
What of you? Did you partake this past weekend?

  1. WOWZA!!! I am blown away by your awesome order! I was going to ask which was your favorite... so now I know I need to try Kissing in the Berry Patch. Blackberry Musk sounds amazing too. Please let me know how you like the Lavender Cream one (the one you bought that looks like purple swirly stuff). You really got there early if you saw all the FPS available! I am really excited about my order still... isn't that corny? I keep going in my closet and sorting and smelling like a wax miser. Petty my pretties. High five for a sweet haul! <3
