February CBV Review

I like perfume or fruity scents and some cinnamon bakery scents. I don’t like strong floral and most bakery.
My mom like floral, clean or perfume scents. She dislikes bakery scents.
Apple Pie Ala Mode- 4/5- I really like this one. You can smell the apple, the creaminess of the ice cream, the pie crust and a little cinnamon. Smells exactly like apple pie ala mode. Not to bakery.
My moms rating: 4/5
Banana Coconut Cream Pie- 3/5- This is a nice scent you can smell both the banana and the coconut. Then there is a background note of the cream pie.
My moms rating: 3/5
Fudge Brownie- 3/5- This one defiantly needs to cure because it is not strong at all. But from what I can smell it is not an artificial chocolate scent. I am also getting a kind of nutty coffee scent.
My moms rating: 2/5
Cinnamon Donuts- 5/5- THIS SCENT IS SO GOOD!!!! It smells like cinnamon sugar and the doughnut bread scent. If you are not a huge bakery scent fan you still may like this scent, give it a try.
My moms rating: 4/5
Granny’s Pie Crust- 3/5- This one is ok, I am going to let it cure. It smells like pie crust and dill pickles to me right now. :(

Daily Review: Texas Summer

Rating: 2.5 (5 best-1 worst)

Texas Summer ~ Lilac, Bluebonnet & Magnolia.

I like this scent but it is WAY to strong for me. If I burn this again I will be mixing it with something else, burn less of it or burn it in a large space. It smells very floral and clean. It reminds me of an open field in the summertime.

Daily Review: Mistletoe

Rating: 5 (1worst- 5 best) I LOVE THIS SCENT!

Mistletoe~ This scent reminds you of a holiday gift basket filled with citrus fruits and spices. A perfect blend of fragrances from dried oranges to cinnamon sticks.

I LOVE this scent, it is one of my favorite Christmas scents! I think it is good all year round, but it is a great scent for the winter time. It is citrus and spice and everything nice, hah.

Daily Review: Indonesian Delight

Rating: 4 (1 worst- 5 best)

Indonesian Delight ~ The top note sparkles with crisp dewfruit, mandarin oranges, tangerines and sweet berries. The heart combines a midley of pineapple, mimosa blossoms, peaches, plums, fruity jasmine and soft lavender. The base is a beauitful lily and vanilla.

WOW! This is such a great complex scent. It is a perfect blend of fruit and floral with a creamy note. It is very strong and gives an amazing throw. Perfect spring scent but is also great all year round. I have it sitting next to me on the table not burning and I can smell it as I type this. Such a good scent!

Daily Review: Snow Storm

Rating: 4 (1 worst- 5 best)

Snow Storm ~ A delectable mix of mint at the heart you will find a hint of violet ending with soft powdery dry down notes of musk.

I love this scent! It is the perfect winter floral. It is a very nice flower fresh scent with peppermint. This is one of my moms new favorites. When it melts it is the perfect balance of the two scents! :)


Daily Review: Eucalyptus Spearmint

Rating: 4 (1 worst- 5 best)
Eucalyptus and Spearmint ~ A refreshing blend of eucalyptus and spearmint--without the Vicks smell. I absolutely love it!!!!

I love this scent!! I love to melt this scent when I am stressed. I had midterms last week and melted this often. It smells like a pack of spearmint gum with a relaxing note!

Where have I been??

I AM SO SORRY!! I completely forgot about this blog. :(
I will start posting on this more regularly, I promise. :)

Daily Review: Rasberry Guava

Rating: 4 (1 worst- 5 best)

Raspberry Gauva ~ A perfect fruity blend that you will love.

This is a great scent. It is not one of those sweet fun candy fruity scents, it is really fresh it is a more "mature" scent. I have loved all the rasberry scents I have tried from Victoria they are both tart and sweet. The guava is an interesting scent and makes it not that real sweet scent. This is not a very strong scent and is perfect for lightly scenting the house with a fruity scent! :)

Daily Review: Mango Papaya

Rating: 4 (1 worst- 5 best)

Mango Papaya~ A tropical delight! You will fall in love with this fruity blend of ripened mango and juicy papaya.

I really like this scent! It is such a great summer scent. It is sweet and tart. It is so juicy... it makes me thirsty. It is a really pretty color it is a redish orange. There is no more papaya than mango it is an equal balance between the two fruits. This scent is truely amazing! :)

Daily Review: Pazzay

Rating: 3 (1 worst- 5 best)

Pazazzy~ A yummy fruity mix of Pina Colada, Coconut, Lemon and a splash of lime.

I like this scent it is a tart zingy pina colada scent! I like the scent of pina coladas but I like the sweet pina coladas. I dont really like the citrus in this. This is not my favorite scent becuase it is tart but if you want a tropical tart drink scent get this one!

Carmen Miranda ~ A sweet blend of oranges, apples, berries, and peaches with a vanilla background.

This is scent places in my top 10! I love this scent so much, it is a sweet fruit scent and is the prettist pink color! It reminds my of a fruit smoothie or fruit flavored candies. LOVE THIS SCENT!

Daily Review: Sexy in Stillettos

Rating: 5 (1 worst- 5 best)

Sexy In Stilettos ~ If you don't know Lanaindana from YouTube you have no idea what you are missing. Sexy In Stilettos was inspired by my good friend and one sweet and genuine lady. Lana "IS" sexy in her Stilettos and we know you will agree that this is one sexy scent!! Created with Lana's favorite scents in mind, a touch of sweetness and oriental musk make this a must have scent for the summer!! Colored red after the soles of Lana's favorite shoes this candle is sure to delight!!

This is a really nice sweet scent. It has that perfume scent and is very sttrong. It reminds me of the Dark Kiss scent from Bath and Body Works. This is a really hard scent to describe, but if you like sweet perfume/ vanilla (ish) scents I would try this one out!

p.s. Thank you Victoria for advertising my page, this is only my second day blogging and having multiple views and two followers is great!

Daily Review: Cherry Fizzy Pop

Rating : 5 (1 worst-5 best)

Cherry Fizzy Pop~ Our wonderful Fizzy Pop with a splash of Cherry to make you say yummy!!

This is such an amazing scent! It is one I would never have choice but it came as a free scent shot. It smells excatly like Cherry 7 Up. It is so cool becuase you can even smell the carbonation, it even tickles your nose. It is a really pretty red color. It is a really strong scent. It is such a fun scent and is great for summer!
