Here she is! The second order from Vintage Chic Scents March restock. I went with one sampler and a couple of 3-packs I had added to my wishlist but did not order during the first check out. I went back and they were still there so why not? Do be careful with repeat orders from VCS. The $9 shipping adds up lightening fast, so try to make it worth it.
Two Wild About Watermelon Samplers at $9.15 each (tarts weighed about 2.7-2.8 ounces each):
An Affair To Remember- I want to bite this purple rose and eat it like a treat straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Cotton candy filled watermelon candies. Fluffy, sweet, girly fun.
Freak Show- This mixture of cucumber, watermelon and mint had me a tad wary. I tend to not care for cucumber scents due to their ultra watery and slightly aloe undertones but the brightness of the mint really lifts the whole blend and sends it in the direction right to my heart. The watermelon is a slightly sweet background note that keeps this from being a strictly fresh scent. Great blend.
GG- A melange of melons. Cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon merge in sweet mellow lovliness. Not too candy and not too aquatic.
Kirby re-branded a little while ago and I wanted to show the cute newer labels. Her 3-pack rose medallions are really the perfect amount of wax for me, at about one ounce per medallion.
Queen Anne's Lace- A sweet confection that consists of vanilla lace, blushing peaches and cotton candy. Sweet candied peaches steal the show with the vanilla lace adding a creamy musk suggestion. Love this. Yummy and summery.
Queen Mary- This scent features sea spray, salty air, sea weathered driftwood, seaberry and white musk. These all crash together like a wave to create an oceanic scent. If you have tried Cape Cod from VCS it is very similar to that scent. A wonderfully refreshing aroma that never veers into ultra clean or detergent realms. A solid, beach house fragrance.
Harry Houdini- A blueberry mojito where lime and blueberry stand out. I get that same plastic tone from the blueberry here as I did in Mrs. Lovett's Pie Shop blueberry. Again, not sure if it burns off during melting. I am a sorry excuse for a blogger and just have not had the time to test like I would like to do. At the moment it is a stretch for me to even get these posts up. This summer will be better.
Some Like It Hot- A tropical concoction of papaya, mango, pineapples and cream soda. Pineapple cream soda hits the nose first smelling very much like a Pineapple Jarrito. Or pineapples and cream. Dole Whip? It is a fun summer scent.
My VCS stash at the moment. It is nice to have some more in my wax drawers to choose from again. Which shapes of Kirby's do you enjoy the most? Will you be trying to order from her soon?
