Here they are in all of their 2 ounce glory: those delectable scent shots from Candles by Victoria.
After watching Brooke (http://www.youtube.com/user/sayanythingbr00ke) and LePooke (http://www.youtube.com/user/LePooke) on Youtube feature multiple reviews of these products I was sold. Well, first the type-A personality in me had to watch about 100 more videos... just to be sure.
|CBV Scent Shot Sampler Packs: Earthy, Clean, Coffee, and Bakery|
For a wax newbie Victoria's website is a bit overwhelming in terms of product selection. With over 1000 scents and combinations to create (why yes - you can custom mix your own CVB blend as well) options are endless.
If you're the type of person who:
a.) can't make up their mind,
b.) changes their mind often,
or c.) runs like crazy at the word commitment; then my friends scent shots are the way to go.
For my first purchase I decided to step outside my comfort zone with sampler packs in Bakery and Earthy scents, but played it safe with the Clean and Coffee scents I naturally gravitate to.
With the sampler packs you get a random selection within each category. For giggles, here is what my package came with:
- Sugared Corn Pudding
- Brown Sugar Shortbread
- Orange Cranberry Muffin
- Hawaiian Hula Muffin
- Hawaiian Wedding Cake
- Pumpkin Bread
- Frosted Lime Cupcakes
- Hazelnut Spice
- Irish Cream
- Caramel Coffee Cake
- Dulce de Leche
- Frenchville Coffee
- Cappuccino Brulee
- Caramel Cafe
- Hot Maple Latte
- Three Wise Men
- Frankencense & Myrrh
- Wood Nymph
- Jacob Black
- Crush on My Handyman (under cologne/perfume section...?)
- Snuggle Baby
- Baby Powder
- Fresh Linens
- Fresh Laundry
- Mango Tango
FREEBIE (one with every purchase): Enchantment (house blend floral)
Overall, I was pretty stoked with the purchase. I placed the order around December 19th and even with the holiday, received my package on December 26th. Cure time for these should be around 2-4 weeks based on what I've heard.
