Candles From The Keeping Room - Fresh Picked Strawberry

Scent Description: From her website:"What can I say, this is the best most realistic strawberry around..lingers for hours..and will fill the room right out with this delicious aroma."
Weight Melted: 1.2 oz
Cold Sniff: 4/5 I wouldn't call this a realistic strawberry. It's too sweet, there's not enough green to it, and it still has a very artificial note to it. That being said, I still enjoyed the scent.
Warm Sniff: 4/5 Same as cold sniff. This is an amazing strawberry scent, but I still wouldn't qualify this as realistic. Maybe I'm too harsh in my expectations when I read 'realistic' but dangit, I wanted to soar through strawberry fields and pick fresh strawberries!
Scent Strength: 2/3
Scent Throw: 5/5 I was working in my bedroom closet for a few hours after starting this, and within 15 minutes of turning on my warmer I could smell this. I was very very very happy with how far this threw!
Melting Power: 5/5 I got about 36 hours of strong melting time from this little tart. I normally wouldn't let a tart melt for this long, but I just couldn't bring myself to call it a day while this was going so strong!
Repurchase: Yes! I almost picked it up at Carol's early May opening, but the entire experience that day made me decide to hold off until she opens up again come Fall. I've uh... been melting way too much CFTKR. I feel like I'm a walking talking CFTKR blog.
I can't help it that I left all her stuff in the box it came in and have it right next to the warmer!

  1. One of my faves! <3

    All CFTKR, all the time >_< I feel like I go in vendor cycles too. I try to mix it up in my basket but if I had a box of wax freshly shipped by the warmer that us what I would throw in too. Hope your week has been going well!
