Baroness X makes everything. Lotion, balms, acetone additives, stunning polish...and now scented wax. I have been testing out her wax for a while, and I think I can say I am a fan. I love home fragrances in general, and shes got some fun and fresh combos.

I have been an incense/candles/oil fan forever. My grandmother burned inscense and candles constantly when I was growing up, a habit she learned from her grandmother. I followed in the family tradition and fell in love with all things fragrant. As a teenager, incense and candles definitely fit into my Stevie Nicks fangirl esthetic. Now that I am an adult, I have broadened my horizons with scented wax. Of course, I am jumping right into the deep end with indie wax.
The wax scent I have been testing is Christmas Mistletoe. In fact, it is currently in two of my warmers right now. It has a warm, cozy, inviting scent...though not totally Christmas for me. I smell notes of sweet spice, fire/smoke, and fresh trees. I feel like it is the perfect post-holiday wintry scent.
This particular wax isn't colored, and I think that may be a one-off. The other cups I have from her are beautifully colored and include shimmers and glitters. I honestly don't mind the lack of color. It still smells pretty.
texture: it is a scoopable wax, and therefore is very soft and sticky. It definitely sticks to my spoon. I have been doing some research, and waxes of this texture are superior for blending your scents.
throw: excellent. My entire downstairs was softly scented after melting this small amount (about a tablespoon) within an hour. I hopped in the shower, and when I got out I could smell it in my bedroom upstairs as well. It wasn't heavy or cloying, and my husband did not complain.
cost per ounce: $1.25 USD. Her tarts are about 1.6oz, and they retail for $2 currently.
repurchase: hell to the yes. I don't see this scent currently on her list, but she mixes them up all the time.
I wanted to make a video of this wax melting, and with the help of my cell phone (what wonders those are these days!) However, I made it at night and once the video sped up, you can see the cycling of my lights! So apologies for that, but the next one will be better!
I expect this will be the first of many smelly posts. In keeping with my resolution, I'll be sharing more of my hobbies with you guys. Hopefully you'll enjoy them as much as I do.
What is your favorite way to scent your house?
