Vapid Wax has something for all you sweet and sassy scent lovers in this month's Polish Pickup. I always buy at least two or three wax melts every month. I didn't expect to want anything this month, as I am not a huge fan of sugary sweet scents, but I was pleasantly surprised by the tart and varied scent of this particular tart.
(promotional samples ahead)
This is a pretty clamshell with two shades/scents blended together. It is soft and pastel with some pretty pink iridescent glitter sprinkled on top. I generally don't care for glitter or shimmer in my wax, but it does make for a lovely melt pool. The blue creates a soft halo around a pale sunshine center, and the glitter twinkles and swirls as the wax melts.
The official description:
Blue raspberry slushie on the bottom melts away to reveal the top layer; a mixture of sweet cotton candy, buttercream frosting and tart lemonade!
The scent is sweet-but-slightly tart at first, which is the blue raspberry base. I really really enjoyed that. As the yellow top melts, it gets softer and you get more of that frosting warmth. As a not-sweet fan, I actually didn't hate this one. I think the raspberry and the tart lemonade keeps it balanced and from being super saccharine. My poor husband, who is an incense-purist, was not a fan.
If you have 40 seconds or so, watch this relaxing melt video. Sound is not required.
