Satin Suzie Scents - Havana Mornings

Scent Description: Strong black Cuban coffee sweeten with brown sugar.

Date Poured: November 22, 2016

Weight Melted: 0.8 oz

Location of Warmer: Kitchen, in tealight warmer

Cold Sniff: 4/5 A surprisingly awesome black coffee with a little sweet sugar added in. You can definitely tell it's brown sugar and not regular sugar.

Warm Sniff: 4/5 No surprises once melted. Actually, that's a lie. I was very surprised that this didn't turn into a silent beg for me to end its misery. I'm used to my coffee scents turning into a warped and bitter ghost of what I like my coffees to smell like.

Scent Strength: 1/3 This stayed incredibly light.

Scent Throw: 2/3 This filled most of the kitchen/dining area, but not much else.

Melting Power: ?/5 It's hard to say how long this tart lasted. It was overshadowed by another scent that I melted (Christmas Cedar), and I forgot this was something I'd melted until I was checking my wax notes.

Repurchase: Undecided. I need to go back and re-melt this, and once I do I will edit this post, but as it sits in my memory, no. This scent was incredibly light but remained a very gorgeous, authentic coffee blend. I may have to save this for smaller spaces and keep other, stronger scents away from it. If my second melt reveals good throw and melting power, I will say yes. Even with the very light scent strength. :)


  1. Coffee scents are usually so strong. At least to me they all seem to be that 'punch in the face' strong. I used to LOVE all coffee scents but now they need to have that bitter edge toned down with some sweetness or creaminess.


    1. That bitter edge tends to lean towards skunky/zuchini bread on my nose, which is why I tend to stay away from coffee scents. I love the smell of coffee, though, so I'm always willing to try a coffee blend in the hopes of something awesome.

  2. Coffeeeee...just coffee...

    1. Coffee is pretty much on my mind 24/7. I wake up with coffee, I go to bed with coffee, I go out with coffee... Coffee. ;)
