I know I’ve mentioned before that melting vendor wax is another one of my hobbies; this post is going to detail one of those vendors I’ve ordered from. I’ve had my warmers on daily and I thought that I’d share with you some thoughts on one of the vendors I’ve tried, Sassy Girl Aroma. Sassy Girl Aroma is a fairly established vendor wax company, run by a woman named Julie and her husband, Tyrell. It ships internationally and is a ready to ship company that has stock on their website constantly and has at least monthly replenishes of stock. The pricing for my shipping within Canada was on the average side and it got to me within 10 days. There’s a Facebook group that she runs where you can keep on top of the upcoming replenishes and the like. I try to stay too much out of the drama, but I will note that within the last year, there was some drama between Julie, her former admin and some customers of hers. I don’t believe any party handled themselves particularly well. I won’t talk more about this more here but I’m sure you can find more information easily. Sassy Girl Aroma isn’t one of my absolute favourite vendors but I do enjoy the wax and will likely purchase from again. Now let’s get down to the rundown of the scents I currently have of hers:
1. Pink Chiffon Gain Soft Blankets Chunk Bag ($10.80 US/ 9-9.5 ounces): This scent is a somewhat generic Gain laundry scent, combined with a similarly generic women’s perfume scent. The throw was on the lower side, even in my medium-small bedroom. My dissatisfaction is likely a result of a first time buyer error, as it was a somewhat blah scent and I think it’s one of the rare scents that does not linger or put off a large amount of scent.
2. Pink Sugar Lavender Mist Chunk Bag ($10.80 US/ 9-9.5 ounces): This was another purchase from my first order. I had thought that I’d adore anything pink sugar because of the hype and my love of lavender, which the pink sugar is paired with. It’s a pink sugar (the Aqualina perfume duplication) scent that is blended with lavender mist. I’d describe the lavender mist as a sweet floral, with traditional lavender note. However, I get a really weird biscuit-y note when blended. I don’t hate this scent but I definitely fell victim to the hype. It has a medium throw and good longevity.
3. Pink Sugar Sleepytime Chunk Bag ($10.80 US/9-9.5 ounces): Apparently upon learning that I was not wild about pink sugar from my first order, I went ahead and ordered a scent that featured it because it was blended with my favourite sweet lavender, chamomile and spearmint blend. I don’t dislike the scent but I’m unable to melt it for too long without the dominant pink sugar giving me a headache. I will note that if you like the Aqualina perfume, it’s a lovely calming girly blend. It has a great throw that lasts. It’s my own fault that I don’t love my purchase here.
4. Pink Sugar Ocean Breeze Chunk Bag ($10.60 US/ 9-9.5 ounces): Surprise! I bought even more pink sugar on that very same order because it was blended with a fresh beauty ozone scent, called ocean breeze. The throw on this one is kind of out of this world and the ocean breeze is dominant for the most so I really like it until the pink sugar becomes dominant and I have a tendency to get a headache. It’s a unique blend that performs well.
5. Salty Sea Air Sweet Lavender Marshmallow Chunk Bag ($10.80 US/ 9-9.5 ounces): On that same order, I apparently did not lose my mind altogether. I did decide to order a scent that was not, in fact, pink sugar based. The marshmallow note was definitely outside of my comfort zone but I ended up really enjoying this one. I’d describe the scent as an event split between marshmallow and the salty sea air. Salty sea air is a kind of watered down ocean breeze scent, in my opinion. The sweet lavender lingers in the background. It has a moderate, room-filling throw.
6. Olive Branch Salty Sea Air Shaving Cream Chunk Bag ($10.80 US/ 9-9.5 ounces): This is my most recently purchased scent from the company and it sits among my favourites. I’d describe it as a unique non-talcum shaving cream thats blended with that fresh ozone and the citrusy Lush-inpired scent. It has that nice room-filling throw that isn’t overwhelming and the blend reads as fresh and energizing. I really enjoy her shaving cream scent.
7. Pumpkin Spiced Latte Bundts ($6 US/ 5 ounces): This caramel-dominant Bath and Body Works scent duplication is spot on. However, like the candle, these bunts were too sweet for me to handle for more than a few hours. The scent is extremely caramel heavy and it’s definitely a thrower.
8. Sleepytime Clamshell ($3.50 US/ 2.9 ounces): This is my favourite bedtime scent blend that I’ve tried. It’s oh-so-calming and is one of my top three scents that I’ve tried period. It’s a perfect blend of sweet lavender, chamomile and spearmint. I’ve repurchased it and ordered back-ups. It has a moderate scent throw that lasts for days and days. I would highly recommend it.
Any vendor wax thoughts?
