Like mixology, except instead of various alcohol combinations, it’s scented wax and…yeah, okay, that might be a bit laboured. But what else would you call futzing about with dozens of scent possibilities to create (or re-create) favourite blends? Blendology? Now, that just sounds stupid. 😉
Not stupid? These terrifically yummy blends I created using indie vendor Rosegirls’ Mini Melters, single scents (also sometimes house-blended combinations) you can combine in whatever fashion you see fit. Smell fit? No, no, definitely see fit.
Mini Melters are a product that’s really only now offered a few times a year (announced via Rosegirls‘ quite active Facebook page) and so if you do manage to catch an opening, stock up on a few favourite scents – they’re lovely and convenient to melt on their own (simply toss into a burner, no messy cutting required) and so much fun to combine in infinitely delicious-smelling variations. Variations such as…
Coffee Shop Favourites, a tart and spicy blend of Cranberry Marmalade, Orange Danish and Lemon Poppyseed. All of the bright scents of a coffee shop pastry case, minus the people taking up space at tables with their laptops while they work on their “screenplays.”
Monster Berry Crunch Donuts, a ludicrously yummy combination that Mr. Finger Candy created featuring Berry Creme Brulee (it smells like raspberry Bubbalicious!), Vanilla Crunch Donuts and Monster Cookie.
Cotton Candy Fluff Puffs, a recreation of what is surely already an existing Rosegirls scent, a sweet and creamy blend of Cotton Candy Frosting, Monster Cookie and Marshmallow Smoothie (Rosegirls refers to their Monster Cookie-and-Marshmallow Smoothie blend as “Fluff Puffs.” Basically you can Fluff Puff virtually anything and it will be fantastic. Also sort of naughty-sounding? Yeah, I’ll fluff yer puff, heheheh. See, dirty!)
Sweet Raspberry Lemonade, a mouthwatering, Lemonheads-like blend of Raspberry Sauce, Swizzle Sticks and Sweet Lemon Confection. I find I don’t much care for any vendor’s lemonade scent (they all tickle my nose; just me?) Here the combination of Sweet Lemon Confection and even sweeter, vanilla glaze-type Swizzle Sticks makes a far less irritating alternative!
If you enjoyed this post, stay tuned for more Mini Melter mixology missives in the near future – I’ve been having a blast creating custom scents for whatever the day brings my way, and I’d love to share my cool blending discoveries. I also now have, like, 8,657 photos of melting wax. Is that weird? Yeah, pretty sure it’s weird! Well, so be the weirdness – at least it smells fantastic in here!
