Olde Primitive Treasures - Twisted Peppermint

Scent Description: Peppermint with vanilla and sugary musk.

Date Received: 3-1-2016

Weight Melted: 1.3 oz

Location of Warmer: Kitchen, in tealight warmer

Cold Sniff: 5/5 An accurate dupe of BBW's Twisted Peppermint.

Warm Sniff: 5/5 No surprises here!

Scent Strength: 1/3

Scent Throw: 3/3 This filled the entire kitchen/dining area, hallway, and office.

Melting Power: 3/5 I got about 5 hours from this tart before the scent died off.

Repurchase: Yes! Really anything Twisted Peppermint that performs better than BBW's version I like to stock up on. I do wish this was a little stronger, but it's my experience that the blend itself is just light. It could also be that I didn't give this much time to cure before melting it. I'm still not sure I entirely buy the whole curing thing, but I have found certain vendors have waxes that seem to perform better the longer I let it sit. Conversely, I've found vendors that seem to have their scents fade as time goes on. There are lots of factors that go into this, however, so I'm not entirely crediting it to curing.


  1. You are totally right. Twisted Peppermint is such a notorious light thrower. Too bad because, like you, I love the scent and just wish it was stronger.

    1. If I ever find a strong thrower you will be the first person I tell. I am forever on the search for a strong Twisted Peppermint! *dramatic sigh*
