The Bathing Garden's Vintage Circus Review
Wednesdays just became the most fragrant day on this blog!
I love wax tarts. Let me say that first and foremost, I have a large collection and I have even created some myself. Walking into a beatifully scented room is one of my many loves in life. So when I melt a wax or burn a candle I want scent. I think my standards are pretty high for scent through, as well as everyone's should be.
I purchased some tarts from TheBathingGarden on Etsy and I absolutely loved most of them. They are decorated, highly scented waxes in a clamshell that will cost you around $3.50 each. Decent price to pay, especially if you purchase one of their tart bundles. I purcahsed the pack of 5 for $16, $21 after S&H. PLUS you will aways get a full sized freebie with purchase! I got 2!
One of the tarts I chose was Vintage circus.

The Bathing Garden describes this tart as
"Blue cotton candy is layered over candy apples. Circus in a tart!"
It is a layered was tart with a purple base and a blue top sprinlked with heart shaped glitter and little blue beads. The description sounded wonderful and creative so I had to try it!
As for melting this lovely bar! I melted this is my scentsy warmer in our living room. I used 3 cubes since it is a bigger room. With most waxes 2 or 3 cubbes does great. For this wax I got a nice enough scent throughout the room. You could smell the faint floral notes I was talking about. The 'greeting' was nice. Lasted a few days, being turned on most of the day and off at night. The scent was still in the wax so I saved it when I switched it out. I think I will try this in my bathroom next time, where it is a smaller area to fill. It is too light for a larger room I believe. I know the scent will still be that strange floral. I dont mind the scent, I was just disappointed it wasn't the sweet red sticky candy and apples wih fairy floss that I had hoped for.
Overall I think I would be interested in purchasing just the blue cotton candy tart from their shop. While the cotton candy is a light scent I believe in a larger amount it could be quite nice and I would like to try it in my bathroom.
Have you tried this scent? What were your thoughts?
