Candy Panda April Restock

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me

A quickie review of what I picked up from the last restock. I stuck with mostly sugar scrubs instead of wax because I've been getting such a light throw from most of their wax melts so far, but there was one scent that caught my attention.

Sugar scrubs are $12.00. Wax melts are $6.75 for a 5-pack

Beach House
Maple syrup, gun smoke and bourbon

An unusual blend that caught my eye at the last moment. It's a tough one to describe, so lets say this is sweet, boozy and fresh all at once. A masculine type of scent that smells very intriguing and I'm looking forward to melting this after a short cure time.

Caribbean Salsa
Tropical blend of citrus, mango and papaya

Fresh orange and mango with accents of tropical florals. A very tart blend.

Pina Colada
Tropical blend of pineapple, coconut and rum

This one is making me thirsty. Tart pineapple blended with a sweet but thick coconut cream. I don't smell the rum so I'll call this a virgin pina colada.

The Last Unicorn
Bora Bora (pineapple, acai, mango, passion fruit, yuzu, green apple, orchid leaves) + Panda Sunset (tamarind coconut) + Jamaica Me Crazy (papaya, grapefruit, apple, coconut)

Take every tropical fruit under the sun, toss it into a jar, and that's what this smells like. The white layer is Jamaica Me Crazy, which is papaya and citrus blended with sweet coconut milk. The middle layer is Panda Sunset, which is all tart citrus. Actually, this one smells just like Caribbean Salsa up above. The bottom layer is Bora Bora, which smells like tart, juicy pineapple and tropical florals.

  1. I was going to ask about the wax throw because I read on your month wrap up post and noticed a light throwing trend. Plus I was reading on a FB thread about light throwing vendors and CP kept coming up. I am SO EXCITED you got the Unicorn scent!! I wanted it so bad. I am hoping I can snag one at this next opening. And the Beach House scent sounds like something I would drool over. Love boozy sexy smells.

    1. Generally I get a light throw from their wax, occasionally a medium throw. For reference, I consider brands like Sugar & Spice, RoseGirls, Super Tarts, most of TBG to have a strong throw. I'm still playing around with different warmers but the Glade one seems to do best with this brand. It sounds like you would definitely like Beach House then! Hopefully they will offer it this time so you can try it out
