Guest Post: Deb Reviews Lasting Scent Candles "Captivated"

This review and post is written by Deb from It's Always Something as a generous favor for me while I am on vacation. Not only is she my dear friend but her blog is one of my favorites and I hope you do go and check it out!

Captivated- Creamy citrus meringue, toasted coconut, tangerine, pecans and marshmallows.
This was such an interesting scent.  I had not looked up the scent description before writing this post, so while this was melting I kept trying to figure out just what it was I was smelling.  I kept thinking of melon, and candy.  In the end I guess it reminds me of an extra rich orange creamsicle type scent.  It's sweet, and creamy, and juicy.  I did not notice any specific coconut or pecan notes, but they are probably what's giving it the tiny bit of warmth that it has.  Every once in a while I thought I was getting a slight bakery note.  This was a very nice, and entertaining scent.
I melted this 1.3 oz. tart in my Glade hot plate warmer and had medium-strong scent.  It traveled well throughout the house but was not overly strong or inyerface.  If I were to ever order from Lasting Scent Candles, I would probably try to get this again.
I would like to thank Julie for sharing this wax with me and allowing me to guest-post while she's away.
Thanks, Julie! 


  1. oooo... I love orange creamsicle! this sounds like a great summer scent!

  2. That description conjures up thoughts of a marshmallow salad we have at Thanksgiving dinner. YUM. LSC hits those citrus scents out of the park, IMO!
