Mooscents June Opening

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me

This is how I've been feeling since the last MooScents restock a few months ago. The waxxie guy, Paul, has been helping Moona fulfill orders over on the regular bath & body side of Moonalisa so it has taken some time to get new tarts made. But all good things are worth the wait. There was a restock last week with some returning scents and a batch of new scents as well. This package arrived on Wednesday so the shipping is lightening fast as always. 

Each clammie is $5.49. I've been melting through a couple after a short cure time and have gotten a consistently strong throw from just one cube. She mentioned that the current wax she uses has been discontinued by the supplier and will be switching over to a paraffin blend in the near future, but that change hasn't happened just yet. In my experience, paraffin tends to throw stronger than soy so I don't expect there to be a noticeable difference.

Bees Knees

Honey, honeysuckle and hyacinth keep you buzzing all summer long

An old favorite that I'm happy to see return, this is thick golden gobs of honey, slightly powdery, but balanced nicely with the clean, green smell of hyacinth. 

Berry Bomb Cake

Juicy ripe medley of bursting berries placed on a cloud of cream and cake

A new scent from her latest restock, I just couldn't wait to try this out while waiting for her bath & body stuff to ship. It smells just like the Knott's boysenberry jam smeared on top of a fluffy slice of white cake. Similar to a blackberry but sweeter, it's dark and tangy and oh so good.

Caribbean Coconut Cakes

A tropical paradise of sun kissed mangos and pineapple soaking into decadent, rum-spiked coconut cakes

Yellow cake topped with tons of toasted coconut shreds and a few slices of mango and pineapple on top. Her coconut leans very buttery and I get a lot of that here. It's a little different than I remember - the perfume seemed to be more mango and pineapple while the wax is more cake and coconut. Both versions are outstanding.

Lavender Shortbread

A buttery shortbread cookie blend with just a touch of lavender essential oil

I reviewed this one before but had to grab another because it's just that damn good. The lavender stands out strong, fresh amd herbal without any of that icy camphorous note I sometimes get, with a golden bakery just beneath the surface.

Strawberry Milkshake

Old fashioned deliciousness in a frothy, juicy, creamy strawberry milkshake

Moona is the only vendor I've found that consistently does a true strawberry scent, so I had to try this one. A little bit of thick vanilla milkshake and a dollop of whipped cream in the background, but this is primarily strawberry. Deliciously juicy, tart summer strawberries. 

Pleased as always with everything Moona does so I'm happy to add these new scents to my collection. There are a bunch of clamshells currently available on the website along with room sprays so head on over and check it out. She posts restock announcements on the Mooscents Facebook page and also through email newsletter so you can follow both ways.

  1. Hahahahaaa! YES! Mine took a little while to ship, but well worth it. I only picked up a candle and a bath salt. No tarts this time, I am trying to hold out for fall scents. I know I will go ape crap over them.
