Candles From the Keeping Room - Chunky Serendipity Pomegranate

What? No, this picture is PERFECT.
Okay, you got me on the picture. In my defense I took the picture at 6 AM, before the sun was up and I had enough lighting to take a good picture.
It's not quite midnight of the last day of the month but I figured I would make one last post to say goodbye to August... and hello September. During which we will very likely be moving. AGAIN. Right as I got everything unpacked and set up where we want it to be. Sigh. Anyway...
Scent Description: None available on website. Pretty self explanatory.
Weight Melted: 1.4 oz
Cold Sniff: 5/5 I loved this on cold sniff! The pomegranate was so prevalent, with just a hint of bakery plus serendipity. Perfect, to my nose!
Warm Sniff: 3/5 Unfortunately, my favorite part about this scent just was not there when I melted this. I enjoy serendipity, but usually as a mixer, and this time all I got was serendipity with maybe a pinch of something bakery. Decent enough, but again, not what I wanted.
Scent Strength: 2/3
Scent Throw: 4/5 It's hard for me to rate the throw as we're in a completely different setting, but I tried to translate it to how I thought it would perform under my previous rating system. I don't think I'll bother revamping it seeing as another move is coming up... sigh.
Melting Power: 4/5 I got 12 hours from this before calling it quits.
Repurchase: No. If this had smelled like it did in the bag I would be all over this baby, but that wasn't the case. :(

 I'm trying to figure out what to write about my soap adventures you ladies want to read about, and I've got to say I'm at a loss. Do I share my finished products? My process? My supplies? My setup? My thoughts about being all science-y? There's just so much I could write about, and tell you about what I've learned! I don't know where to start! One thing I can tell you for certain is seized soap is the hardest darned thing to work with LOL!


  1. I'm so interested in all aspects of your soap adventures! Blog any or all of it, I will soak it up. I've never thought to blend serendipity with pomegranate! I'll have to keep that in mind. I wish this one melted better for you though.
    You're moving --again! Where to this time?

  2. Oh no. Another move?! Is this crazy military red tape? I seriously want to hear any and all soapy info! I am dying to try soaping. Sorry this muff was too dipityish.
