Vintage Chic Scents: Last Restock of 2016

Good Morning, Starshine! Guess who finally scored some Central Park Snow Globe from Vintage Chic Scents after several strike outs?! This chic chick. Ok, maybe not chic, but definitely persistent. It being an evening opening helped so I could stalk here and there between cooking dinner and such. I ended up grabbing a Deluxe Blossom bag in Central Park Snow Globe and a loaf in Cookie Baking at Mom's/Edelweiss. 

Central Park Snow Globe forges a creamy icy sweet dream of peppermint creme and vanilla bean noel. I have loved this scent for many a year and I am thrilled to have more on hand. I melted one of the thinner rose medallions and a small flower bud in my bedroom and it threw medium-strong all night long and even the next morning when I woke up. Brilliant. The Deluxe Blossom bag weighed just over a pound at 16.6 ounces and cost $19.50.

Someone gifted me a couple snowflakes in Edelweiss a few years ago. I want to say either Jacqui or Lauren, and I loved it straight off. Edelweiss blends gooey gingerbread cake and frosts it with cream cheese frosting. Normally I cannot get along with cream cheese frosting, but Kirby's lacks that sour note I usually pick up. Edelweiss is the overpour on this gorgeous loaf and the snowflake chunks are in Cookie Baking at Mom's, which entails baking vanilla frosted gingerbread men, cinnamon buns and sugar cookies. Whew! That is a lot of baking. The two combine to create a rich vanilla laden fresh baked cake fragrance with a soft cinnamon spice. Like the ultimate coffee cake. I love it. I threw a chunk in both the living area and kitchen warmers and got a strong throw. This regular sized loaf weighed just under a pound at 15.5 ounces and cost $18.40. 

Kirby included an extra bakery bag to keep the loaf in once it was chopped up. But I stuck it back in the zip top bag it came in. I love that she did that though. 

A free sample in Tea Room came with my order. It is that classic lemon tea and almond cake scent of Tea & Cakes. 

Shipping is a flat rate of $9.00. This time she had a few things in stock well after the initial rush of orders. In fact she had a loaf of Cookie Baking at Mom's that kept calling to me. But it did eventually sell out buy the time I came around to deciding that I would want it. Worked out for the best I am sure. 

Did you get anything from this last restock of the year? Do you have a VCS scent you crave time and again?


  1. Thanks so much for your review Julie! Glad you finally snagged a bag of CPSG! 😘
