Kirby posted on her Facebook page about a small business sale she was hosting with a 20% off coupon code. I was curious about what all was on offer so I popped over to Vintage Chic Scents and found some treasures.
Sabrina Spellman- Notes: Palo Santo, Vanilla Lace, Cashmere Fig $4.70 (two-pack)
I have only had palo santo in wax in a blend from Jay I believe. I love palo santo in real life, but concerns over ethical harvesting have me looking for that minty creamy coconut smelling wood in other forms. Being a Sabrina fan too was a nice bonus. This is a beautiful scent. The coconut aspects of fig and palo santo bring out the milkiness of the woods and vanilla musk. I wish I had more.
Central Park Snowglobe- Notes: Peppermint creme' noel $5.60 (4-pack)
Icy mint and cool vanilla. I missed having some of this on hand.
Lavender Moonstone- Notes: Eucalyptus, Spearmint, Lavender Vanilla, and Peppermint $19 (loaf)
Soothing minty herbal life giving essence. Yup. It actually smells like Bath and Body Works Stress Relief mixed with their Aromatherapy lavender vanilla scent. I like it very much. Happy with a big honkin' loaf of it.
Grandma Mackinson's Blackberry Patch- Note: Sweet Juicy Blackberries $5.60 (4-pack)
This is a rather straightforward blackberry blend. It is tart, a tad grapey and very sweet. I think this would be best suited to blend with so that is what I will do.
Bidi Bidi Bom Bom- Notes: Strawberry Pound Cake (type)
I believe this is the scent of the hour in the wax world. Peeps been ravin' 'bout strawberry pound cake. I did pick it up from Dessa yesterday but having this scent shot as a freebie was pretty sweet. Thanks, Kirby! It is a nice strawberry scent with soft floral notes and pinch of greenery grounded by mounds of whipped cream and a blanket of fluffy white cake. I can see the appeal. I don't normally go for fruity but I am a sucker for a good strawberry scent.
I am happy with my order from VCS as usual and will be melting these goodies with a smile on my face. Did you take advantage of the small business sale? What did you get?
