Warmed Wax: Rosegirls Scoopable and Lasting Scent Candles


Lasting Scent Candles Smoking Mirrors- A unique mix of pomegranate, leather, mahogany and other notes that mainly came across as a leather scent in my home. The throw was a nice medium. As much as I enjoy leather and other unique notes, this really was just pretty linear for me and probably not a repurchase. If more of the unique elements appeared I would have enjoyed it much more.


Rosegirls Garden of Eden Scoopable- This simple mixture of lavender and fruit juice just knocks me flat. The throw is strong and the fruits and lavender just meld together so well. It never comes across as candy-like or too sweet. Repurchase every time I see it.

The Scoopable wax can be found here. Kathy is restocking right now, but if you "like" and follow her Facebook group, you will stay in the loop. Also, Lasting Scent Candles mentioned opening again for holiday scents in a few weeks. I will be following closely to see when. But honestly, I am having a ton of fun burning candles right now! My Yankee Pumpkin Spice is still kicking along with my Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Pie. I am thinking about lighting my precious L'Artisan candle soon in my bedroom. Mmmmmmmmm! Have you melted or burned anything that had you smiling of late?

  1. Garden of Eden sounds excellent! I am excited to see what else Kathy restocks, but I have a few candles coming from B&BW, so I might not buy anything!!

    1. It was perfect! I am skipping this restock but still debating the CFTKR one. I need a couple holiday ones from Carol. Plus like you said, I have BBW candles to burn.

    1. Oh! I should have sent you a scoop and made you try it!! I am skipping this next opening but if you get it, let me know if you like it! I had SUCH a hard time describing it that I didn't even really try.

  3. Is that black wax (Smoking Mirrors)? Didn't a certain vendor once say black wax couldn't be made? Heh.

    I haven't melted anything truly wow worthy for many days now. I'm getting frustrated with my Dessa's pumpkin scents because they all seem to smell like just cinnamon. I'm tempted to just shove them all aside and dive into what I know is good, the Sweet Fixations and BHG / Scentsationals.

    1. It is blackish! And ScentSationals makes a really dark black wax too. You know it's funny you mention that. Very few "pumpkin" wax I have melted actually smells like pumpkin. I noticed that more when I burn my Pumpkin Pue candle because it smells so much like pumpkin. Sorry Dessa is no longer hitting the sweet spot.
