Welcome fellow scent devotees and friends. A few of us fragrance bloggers put our heads together in recent weeks to discuss the upcoming Sniff My Tarts custom wax opening. After much bouncing of ideas off each other’s emails and blogs, we nearly achieved an official G20-level Summit of the Senses. Only on a slightly smaller scale with a 3 member delegation; however, we have international status, as a founding member is a resident citizen of Canada. Custom scent planning is serious business, but more fun en masse, so with that sentiment in mind we decided to publicize our secret blends in the interest of global scent significance and world wax harmony.
On today’s Scent Summit Agenda:
- New business: A compiled list of my planned wax blends below.
- Past business: Links to two previous Scented Library SMT custom reviews with favorites briefly noted.
- *Collective female fiscal empowerment: the planned blends of Sandra, from Finger Candy and Julie from The Redolent Mermaid via links to their respective blogs.*
- An official date/time to the custom opening on which the members and any participants may reconvene to congratulate each other’s customs conclusion.
This well-organized blend compilation is courtesy of the artfully manicured hands of Finger Candy’s, Sandra. Special thanks to her for transcribing my brainstormed blends into scholarly looking scent lists. Am I the only one who sees book spines? Ooh, better yet, seasonal scent anthologies?
Most of my customs will be in the form of 3-fragrance oil chunks, adorable mini-muffins or the frosted wax cookies. Since the Sniff My Tarts powers-that-be updated their wax formats for any size 10 oz. or larger to allow 4-scented oils, the 4 fragrance oil blends above (of which, there are 4) will be in the new Chunk Brittle for Fall and the 10 oz. no-fuss chunks for Summer. I like to take it easy in the Summer and prefer the leisurely wax options requiring zero to minimal chopping, I’m a fairly lazy melter year-round.
The single exception being the planned chunky half-pie size ($22) for one blend I know will be a guaranteed winner ⇒ Fall’s yummy Apple Cider Latte (overpour)+Buttercream Drizzle Bread+Vanilla Waffle Cone. I was gifted a slice of a similar SMT blend and it was divine. For pretty decorated wax cake designs, check out the customs reviews via Finger Candy and The Redolent Mermaid, they’ve received some stunnahs.
My best Sniff My Tarts custom wax of the past:
Buttercream Sprinkles+Peppermint Swizzle Sticks+Cream Soda (above), Dragon’s Blood+Barbershop 1920 both reviewed here and the sweetly simple Japanese Cherry Blossom+Juicy Grapefruit+Cotton Candy Frosting cookie from my first order. On a related note, the Salty Sea Air+Barbershop+Sandalwood combo improved mightily after extra cure time, hence the use of more SSA in my upcoming blends.
Whereas, Sandra has the bakery-type melts down to a science and Julie will summon all the earthy, smoky and marshmallowy goodness, my blends have been deemed more…experimental. That is fair and fine with me. The old scent blending synapses were rapid firing as I tried to think outside my comfort zone while still satisfying seasonal cravings. There’s calculated risk when creating a custom scent, but half the fun lies in not knowing how they’ll turn out.
Sniff My Tarts will open for custom business this Sat, 8/11/18 from 9-10 am EST and again at 7-8 pm. Will you be there?
*If you aren’t already following Finger Candy and The Redolent Mermaid, do. Sandra and Julie are mega-talents with beautiful blogs who give wax melts a good name and provide constant inspiration, both for my blog life and my life, life.
What do you say ladies, any wax trade deals on the horizon when our customs come in down the road?
