MINI MELTERZZZZZ! My Rosegirls Mini Melter order came promptly and securely packaged. Jenny had weaved bubble wrap between each bag so they moved nary an inch. She had predicted a possible March opening, but has since moved it back to April, so these guys give me plenty of time to play around with my mixology. I also placed a second tiny order once I saw the custom date was pushed back. How nice is it to be able to order anytime we want now?! (Cash on hand not withstanding). Let us commence our wax chat shall we?
Bananas Foster- I tend to be picky with bananas. If I smell mainly Laffy Taffy or Runts artificial banana scent, then I usually pass. This banana seemingly starts to veer in that direction, then my nose picks up that caramelized sugar scent that accompanies flambe Bananas Foster, adding a much need depth for my taste. I almost even get a creamy crepe note too. I am looking forward to blending this with spicy bakery. By the by, don't those look like a pile of butter pats?
Tobacco- And if those were pats of butter than these are chunks of fudge. Mmmmm. This tobacco scent reminds me more of vanilla suede than tobacco leaves, but I love it. I want to blend this with Twilight Woods and Warm Vanilla Sugar or Blackberry Amber. A beautiful fragrance that I am thrilled Jenny is carrying.
Blackberry Amber- Gaw-geous. Dark berries, florals, musk and amber all swirl around in there, crooking their fingers at me. Love!
Birthday Cake- Jenny mentioned getting a new Birthday Cake and baked Zucchini Bread back during the last custom opening, I believe. I was antsy to try both but ended up picking this one first. Boy howdy, this is strong! Vanilla and white cake that pack a punch in your nostrils. This will be great for blending or even on its own. I am thinking of a vanilla heavy blend of Vanilla Bean Noel/Vanilla Ice Cream/Birthday Cake.
Vanilla Crunch Donuts- This is lovely. It reminds me of those unfrosted cakey donuts you can get from Krispy Kreme (or Dunkin Donuts I suppose, but I am a Krispy Kreme gal myself). I feel like there is the MEREST hint of cinnamon, just a whiff, the kind you can't really taste but lends to a depth in the blend. Very yummy. Especially blended with blueberries and pumpkin.
Grapefruit- So good. This grapefruit is a juicy sweet Ruby Red. Cut in half, dripping with bursting pulp and sprinkled with white sugar crystals. I am solemnly swearing to make a blend with grapefruit as the overpour. I can see this going really well with Marilyn.
To be honest, I don't normally blend with wax. I like my wax, like my food. Separately and one at a time (if it is blended in a chunk already, that is ONE scent- kinda like the pile of stuck nachos being ONE chip). But I am excited to give these a go for blending. What scents do you think I should try from the Rosegirls Mini Melt list? What of these would you blend together?
