Day 058 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Currently Burning: Vanilla Bean Noel

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first full length animated feature released by Walt Disney. I was released in 1937 so it's been around awhile :) The Disney films from back in the day were kind of scary! The Evil Queen is an awesome villain in this one. I think that it's kind of funny that Snow White is probably the healthiest looking of all Disney princesses. She has a very boyish frame with a larger waist and smaller bust.

While not my favorite Disney movie of all time, this one is definitely amazing for its time. It's clear that a lot of hard work went into the production. The background and foregrounds are all painted on glass panels by hand! Check it out if you haven't!

Now onto the daily review!

Vanilla Bean Noel (4): This is a dupe for a Bath and Body Works scent. Not having smelled that product before, I won't be able to give a comparison. When I first burned this one a couple months back, I thought it was pretty good, but nothing really special. It's a combo of vanilla and peppermint and it's much heavier on the vanilla (compare to sweet snow which is the opposite). Now that it's been sitting for a couple months it's blowing my socks off. I think this one is a great mixer (I know a few CAS are already out there - I'm going to throw 1/4 scent shot of spearmint in here in a few to make Eskimo Kisses). The throw on this one is pretty strong. I'm not sure if I would order this one by itself, but I would definitely get one of the combo scents.

*Update* The CAS Eskimo Kisses is AMAZING! I may have to break my candle freeze to get this in a Love, Victoria with Gem Blue Glitter!

Remember to keep those wicks trimmed!

  1. I'm loving your blog and the scent a day reviews. You may perhaps even inspire me to start blogging again...sadly, I've gotten very lazy over the winter months.

    Thank you so much for the positive feed back on Eskimo Kisses!! :D
