I melted up all my FuturePrimitive wax tarts and needed to restock. Tiggy recently made Wand Maker a general catalog scent and I was thrilled. I set out to scoop that one up and a few more.
Everything arrived perfectly as always, nestled in a wee box with crinkles and wrapped in neat black tissue paper.
White Witch- Notes: Patchouli and bourbon geranium.
Eye rolling fantastic. If you love a ripe noir patchouli that smells of neglected hope chests and the forest floor on a moonless midnight then this is the patchouli for you (and me).
Sylph- Notes: Marshmallows and a glug of lavender oil.
Sylph is a scent I love in Tiggy's bar soap. To be fair, I love all her bar soaps. But Sylph in wax is much more sweet and marshmallowy. Don't get me wrong, the lavender is still very much there and gorgeous as all get out, but the candy like tones are much more present. It is so sweet and pure as to almost have a berry-like quality to it. This is a sweet/herbal lavender. One of the best out there for my preferences.
Dark Carnival- Notes: Honeycomb, vanilla caramel, sugared walnuts in newspaper, coconuts, amber and tonka bean incense.
A sweet amber scent that almost crosses into the gourmand territory. Amber musk heightened and drizzled with creamy coconut caramel sauce. Man oh man is this one brilliantly delicious.
I love it so much.
The Wand Maker- Notes: Leather bound books, cedarwood, lavender beeswax candles, and black wand boxes.
It truly reminds me of Ollivander's. The leather not only bind books but wraps around the wand boxes as well. The cedar lends an austere nod to the magic of the wood in the wands and beeswax rounds out the rougher edges, adding the patina of age and the warmth of light to the shop. I love this one. This is what my Amortentia potion would smell like.
Festival- Notes: Nag Champa, patchouli and smoke.
Please forgive me, somewhere along the line I must have misplaced my Festival photo. It is that pretty mint green tart in the center of the photograph above. And it is my meditative scent. The nag champa and patchouli meet together in an almost icy state where some coolness of eucalyptus or menthol emerges from their spiritual pairing. I melted one tart in my kitchen and one in my living area and they threw strong in the house.
Not a huge order but I am so very happy with all the scents I got. I will be back for more. Tarts are 1.75 pounds each ($2.15) and shipping was 7.80 pounds ($9.59). I ordered doubles of some of these so not all the tarts I purchased are shown. I used a code for a discount since it was Tiggy's birthday (she usually emails out a code via newsletter for her birthday, I think it was 20% off or thereabouts). Have you purchased wax tarts from across the pond? How cute are their little scent cups?
