Rosegirls Wax

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me.


My first time trying RoseGirls wax! I've been meaning to for years, but I finally went for it. This was from the January preorder that I received about two weeks ago. I wanted to try a few more scents than this, but this is a lot of wax so I kept it small this time. The website is currently closed while the most recent preorders are prepared, but you can join the RoseGirls Facebook group for updates on the next opening. 

Chunk squares come in an 8 ounce bag for $10.50, and the muffins come in sets of two for $7.00


Best Friends Forever Club


Blend of pineapple splash, lemonade and frosted cupcake.

It's an equal mix of all three notes on cold sniff, but in the warmer it's mostly lemonade. A harsh, astringent lemonade that begins to irritate my airway if I breathe it in too long. I really want to like this scent but it's just too strong. Next time I'll try blending it with something like vanilla and hope for better.


Coconut Lime Margarita 



Fresh, zingy lime and smooth coconut milk. It's not boozy or salty enough for me to think margaritas. I've gotten picky with lime scents because some of them end up smelling wonky, but I love this one. Super strong throw all day long.


Hippie Juice 


Coconut rum, pink lemonade, strawberry, watermelon.

That same harsh lemon note from Best Friends Forever Club mixed with watermelon and strawberry Jolly Rancher candies. Tangy and summery. The lemon is more tolerable in this blend because the other notes help tone it down a notch. Super strong throw all day. 


Ooey Gooey Caramel & Tobacco


Caramel, vanilla and dark brown sugar blended perfectly with sweet tobacco leaf and mahogany woods.

The most perfect sticky caramel scent blended with clean, earthy freshness from the tobacco leaves. Both notes stand out equally in the warmer. This was the wild card, but I'm happy I took a chance with it. Strong throw all day.



I'm pretty happy with everything here and can't wait to check out more Rosegirls openings. The throw is seriously impressive (this stuff was scenting the room before I even turned the warmer on), ordering is easy, and there are tons of fun blends to choose from. I may end up steering clear of her lemon blends although I'd like to try one or two more just to be sure.

  1. Nice order! We both got the tobacco scent. Like you, I am not a fan of RG lemonade scents, they come off as too.... gosh I hate to say it... acidic vomity. But her lemon confection and lemon Sicilian cookies are really yummy. Just not the lemonades for me. Wishing I would have picked up the Coconut Lime Margarita. Ah well. I try to keep the pre-orders smaller since everything is more expensive in larger quantities. Are you ordering from her next one? There are a few I HAVE to get.

    1. Yes, acidic! Maybe if it was softer I could handle it, but it was so strong that it was making me cough. I'll be on the lookout for those lemon blends though. That lemon cookie sounds good!

      Thank you for pointing out the next preorder! I probably would've missed it since she just did the samplers a few weeks ago. I see a few tropical blends that sound good, and RoseGirls Garden sounds like a must have! Have you tried the vanilla crunch donut blend? Which ones are you getting?

    2. The RG Garden is one of my favorite blends. <3 The Raspberry and VBN really make the rose gourmand. I am a huge fan of RG Vanilla Crunch Donuts! Alone, it is a nice strong vanilla cake scent. No spice. I plan on getting the VCD FLuff Puffs, The RG Garden, Cool Beans, Escape to Neverland, Wackadoodle and maybe Game Over. I am splitting a half pie of the Alice in Slumberland. Are any standing out to you?

    3. Perfect! I'll grab those two then. I was looking at Neverland and Game Over too, but it's a lot of wax so I'll have to choose one. Probably Neverland. Then Sunset in July but again, that's a LOT.

      And now that I'm looking over the list, the sunshine lollipops is tempting too. I was hoping to see that violet sandalwood(?) blend on the poll.

    4. I was hoping for the violet sandalwood too. I like their sandalwood. Just a heads up, I did hear from a reliable source that even though BCD and fluff puffs are great separately that together they don't mesh. So something to think about.

  2. Nice haul! I'm also trying to decide if I will order from Rose Girls opening or not. It is very tempting. The strawberry Nilla wafers, Game Over and Alice and Slumberland is really standing out to me.

    1. It is tempting! There's so many restocks this weekend and next that I'll have to keep it small for RoseGirls. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these scents if you order!
