1/30/12 Scent of the Day: Fresh Picked Strawberries

Today I decided to burn my Fresh Picked Strawberries candle for the first time. 
I ordered this scent in candle form before ever smelling it, and took an even bigger chance because Candles by Victoria doesn't have a scent description for it. Weird, huh? Not even on the CBV Browser! But, I chose to order it anyways, and I'm so glad I did. The reason I decided to get this one was because I LOVED the strawberry scent in Chocolate I thought this might be Chocolate Strawberries without the chocolate...and let me tell you, I hit the jackpot because it smells just like I wanted it to!
On cold throw, it smells like starburts. Very sweet and candy-like. Burning, it still smells sweet but a lot more of the fruit note of the strawberry comes out. Since I absolutely despise berries and especially strawberries, I can't tell you what they really smell like since I don't get around them much...but  what I can tell you is that this scent is AMAZING. It's super authentic and a great year-round scent in my opinion. Very nice basic fruity scent. I recommend this one for sure.

1/19/12 Scent of the Day: Apples n Oaks

Well hello everyone! I've been sitting here drinking some peppermint hot chocolate and melting one of my new favorite scents from CBV: Apples n Oaks. I'm writing this on my iPad, as I'm sure I will be doing in the future, so I can't get the CBV scent description easily for you. So I hope my little description is good enough :)
I got this scent in the Round Robin I recently participated in, and I love it. It smells fresh from the apple, which seems to be a light green apple scent but light enough that it's not sour smelling. It's balanced out with a different note, which I'm guessing is a woodsy type of scent, since that's what I seem to get and plus the "oak" in the name. This scent is a really nice fresh scent to me. I love it and I think a lot of other people will too! This one needs a little extra praise.
It's almost Friday! I hope you guys have a great day and I hope to be posting more often now that I'm finally getting used to being back at school.

1/05/12 Scent of the Day: White Chocolate Karibu

Hi everyone! Today I melted a little bit of White Chocolate Karibu...for about 3 minutes...
The CBV description is: Mouth-watering blend of roasted cashews, mixed gently with rich, buttery honey, then drenched with white chocolate ganache! ~Godiva type scent~ 
Whew...let me tell you...I didn't like it :( I've come to the realization that I can't handle Victoria's honey scents. Anything with honey in it makes my nose feel like I have to sneeze! I hated Bathtime With Pooh, and I couldn't handle this one as well. I can't even explain smelled like straight salt to me with a little bit of honey. 
This review won't be a long one because I wasn't a fan unfortunately...I really wanted my nose to like this one, too! Boo :(
I hope everyone is having a good's almost the weekend! I have to go back to school on Monday...even bigger boo :(
