Currently Burning: Coco Beach Baby Peach
Today I thought I would do a fun post of my CBV Stash. I was going to wait to do this until a Saturday, but I figured I could just do an updated stash instead. I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but I would always burn through/order more so I wasn't ever really satisfied. However, I think I'm finally good to go!
Starting off with storage. I do not have a dedicated bookshelf/tv stand/cabinet etc (yet) so for the time being, these are mostly scattered throughout the house. The big basket holds my 4 oz, 8 oz, and 9 oz candles, and the scent shots that I have not reviewed for the blog yet. The paper bags in there have scent shots that are still curing. I write the date that I received them from UPS. Since I have so many, I usually wait about a month (unless there's one that I cannot possibly wait for).
The other container up there holds the scent shots that I've already reviewed. At one point in time I was quartering my shots, but I knew that I would end up with WAY too many, so I went with half instead. I need to order a new tart warmer to help go through all these...
My tureen, Black Label, and comfort candles all sit on a bookshelf that houses my DVDs. This case also has the empty jars (3 9 oz and 1 4 oz w00t!) that I'm hanging onto until I can figure something to do with them. The 16 oz usually sits in my bedroom.
I have 4 Black Labels. I really love these scents. The one burning is Manhattan. The three below that are: 007, Godfather, and Harvey Wallbanger.
Next, I grouped my tureen with my 16 oz. The 16 oz is Butterfly Kisses. The 22 oz tureen is Bella Swan in Grape glitter. I wasn't too big of a fan of the 16 oz at first, because mine wasn't burning as clean as I wanted. However, now that it's past halfway it's burned off all of the wax that was originally all over the edges so I think I probably will order more 16 oz. The 22 oz is one of my favorites. I haven't burned it all the way down yet (I've heard this is where it can become problematic) but I love it so far!
I have 2 Comfort Candles. While I'm not a big fan of the bowl (takes me usually about 5 hours to get completely to the edge) the scents are amazing and they're really cute (pre-burn). The pink one is Sinful Strawberry Shortcake and the orange one is Momma's Peach Cobbler.
Moving onto the 4 oz candles (5). From left to right I have: Blushing Peaches, Bergamot & Herbal Mint, Stress Relief, Shamrock Kiss, and Love Shack.
Next I have my 8 oz candles (13). I haven't really decided if I like this one or the 9 oz better. I think I'll probably just alternate ordering 8 oz and 9 oz samplers from here on out because they're great jars. The scents from top to bottom are:
- Mango Sorbett
- Banana Coconut Cream Pie
- Sugared Corn Pudding
- Pumpkin Cider
- Tokyo Spring
- Bermuda Triangle
- Sophie Belle
- Bergamot & Mandarin
- Kimono Silk
- Bite Me
- Sexy in Stilettos
- White Nectarine & Pink Coral
- Coco Beach Baby Peach
The 9 oz jars are definitely easier to stack, but I've found can be a little tougher to get a full melt pool because of the shape (hence the toss up between 8 and 9 oz). I have 10 of these. Scents from top to bottom are:
- Jacob Black (lit)
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Coconut Cream Pie
- Reese's Peanut Butter Delight
- Red Velvet Cake
- Banana Nut Bread
- Mango Tango
- Fruit Loops
- Macintosh Apple
Scent shots will take WAY too long to list all the scents, so I'll just let you see the pretty colors! These are the ones that I have reviewed before (36).
These I have yet to review (76).
And all of them together. I had 4 more stowaways that I found before the picture so the total is 116 scent shots.
PHEW! This darn blog has turned me into a hoarder! Every weekend my place smells super awesome because I usually have 3 or 4 different things going to try to get through my stash. I need to get another tart warmer STAT! I wish I could burn these at work because that would help, but alas I cannot.
Hope you all enjoyed the candle porn!
Now onto the daily review!
Remember to keep those wicks trimmed!
