Sniff My Tarts: Part 2

Part Deux of the August 15th Sniff My Tart's opening arrived in excellent condition. I must say Donna and Amy have really upped the packaging game and I am over the moon. The piped heart were bagged then cradled in bubble wrap. The tarts were packed tightly in to prohibit excess movement and thus, ruination of their photogenic selves. Part two of the order held the remainder of my piped hearts and the chunks. Part three is only two small pies. And it shall arrive later.

My craving of all things minty is well documented. Enter: Peppermint/Spearmint/Rosemary Mint. Overload of mint? Never. The spearmint is not Wrigley's chewing gum sweet the mints are arctic. The rosemary adds just a touch of clean transparency. I adore this blend. 

Sticky Pink Serendipity/Sugar Berries/Pink Sugar came from my extreme love of all three of these scents. I had just never had then live all together. The berries figure prominently with pink serendipity taking the unusual backseat role. It is a sweet candy-like scent.

Mmmmmm... my babies. Jacqui totally is responsible for turning me on to the glorious melding of Honeyed Gingerbread to Ice Cream Scoop Bread. I decided to add my ever favorite Marshmallow Noel to the mix. It brings to mind cakes and donuts and spices with an almost caramel richness. 

Sweet Lavender Marshmallow Cake/Marshmallow Noel/Pink Coconut, another creation of some of my most favored Sniff My Tarts scents. Sweet, calming, creamy and lush. These three scents are amazing in just about anything or even on their own.

Obviously, you can tell I know what scents I love from Sniff My Tarts. But they do have such an extensive scent list that I did want to try some single scent options in the hearts. 

Orange Clove, a charming holiday aroma of blood oranges, cinnamon bark and clove nubs. 

Sleigh Ride does not really ring my chimes. It smells like artificial perfumey taffy. There is some spice lurking back there but I am just not sure on cold sniff. I will melt it to see if it morphs.

Lavender Berry smells of grapes and sweet lavender. Mostly grapes. I do like it.

Pink Sugar Baby mixes pink sugar, cotton candy and vanilla sugar. Very sweet and full love, musk, pink hearts, fuzzy sweaters and first kisses. I love it. 

Marshmallow Noel & Candy is amazing. I will be blending with this bad boy again. Marshmallow, vanilla bean noel, and candy canes. Why have I not bought this blend before?!?!? Pink peppermint marshmallow noel & candy in a sheet cake. Right meow.

Free Samples:

Peppermint/Eucalyptus/Spearmint cubes and I love 'em! Great for a headache day. 

Cranberry/Mandarin Peel/Cornbread, man alive. This takes me back to the Heavenleigh Apothecary days when wildberry sugar cookie cornbread ruled the waxy planet. Cranberry and mandarin shout their tart sweet flavor right up against the smothering bakery dough of the cornbread. I love the idea of melting this while I smell it on cold but I *just* know I will highly regret it when I put it in the warmer. So it will go to a heavy bakery loving home. 

I am head over heels for my Sniff My Tarts order, part two. I am happy with my blends and I look forward to a few new ones in the future. Did you order on the 15th? Do you plan on catching the next opening? Any of these blends or scents grab your nose?  


  1. The corn-on-fudge chunks really caught my attention. (Well, that's what they look like!) Honeyed Gingerbread? Sounds interesting.

    Nice order. =)


    1. Lol! Corn fudge chunks. Yep. I totally see it. I just love this scent. I think you might like it too ;-) we'll just have to see.

  2. Honey Gingerbread/Ice Cream Scoop Bread is one of the absolute best combos in wax! I still have a few chunks I've been saving for this year. SMT used to be one of my faves but the inconsistencies in my orders and in their website turned me off. Glad to hear things are a bit more even keeled these days. Their scent list absolutely cannot be beat!

    1. Absolutely!!! Yes they have had some growing pains. I remember getting boxes practically empty with my tarts rattling around, but no more. Once they pared down the shapes offered this time it made ordering a breeze.
