Wax of the Day: Fortune Cookie Soap - Vivid

Saturday, June 27, 2015

Today, I am melting Vivid from Fortune Cookie Soap.  I picked this one up from the company's website.  They usually retail for $2.00 each.

Official Scent Description:  Some people say it smells like Hawaiian fruit punch, others say it smells like a fruity cocktail! Whatever it is, it's an addicting sugary sweet love spell!

So, how'd this one do?

Initial Thoughts:

This is the 2nd melt that I have tried from this company.  The first one (Polyjuice Potion) was beyond disappointing despite having quite a few reviews making some pretty big claims to the "amazing" performance.

I had melted that last one in a Glade warmer in my living room.  So, I thought I would try this one in the Scentsationals bulb warmer in a much smaller space.  (My bedroom is very tiny.) 

So, I am hoping it does much better for me.  I'm especially hoping because I have quite a few more tarts from this company to melt.  Ugh,  Haha.

Cold Impression:

It definitely smells sweet.  It reminds me of a candy or gum that I used to have back in the 90s, but I can't place it.  It smells pretty awesome: artificially fruity and sickly sweet with a little kick.

Performance and Stats: 

What:  1/2 the tart (.6oz of wax)

How:  Scentsationals warmer

Where:  Bedroom (small, about 6' x 8')

Duration:  3hours (3:30pm - 6:30pm)

This one started off with a good medium throw with a scent that was true to cold.  I was so happy, because it was already better than the last tart I had tried from FCS.  It filled up my tiny room quite well, but it didn't spread out beyond it at all.

It faded significantly after about 2 hours.  I had to be within about 3 feet to get any scent.  By the 3 hour mark, the scent was gone.

I did remelt it this morning. I got a little bit of fragrance that went out a couple feet from the warmer.  It went away again after about an hour.

Final Thoughts:

I keep forever having hope for these, because 95% of the reviews I have seen for them are saying how they are absolutely amazing with a great throw, able to be reheated several times, etc.  I just haven't experienced that with these yet.

Like I said above, I do have several other tarts from this brand still to melt.  So, we shall see if I have a different experience with any of that wax.  As it stands right now, I would not repurchase wax melts from this brand again.  I still live for their cuticle butter, though.

*Not sponsored in any way.  I paid for this with my own money and all that jazz.  I did have a coupon code from my Fortune Subscription box, but the shipping fee more than made up for that.  Haha! :)
