At our house more often than not the question “What’s that smell?!” doesn’t have a happy answer.
Luckily this is one of the few times it does.
A delicious smell wafted from the closed box, and got stronger as I opened it.
Right on top was a handwritten “Thanks for your purchase” card, and hidden among the packing peanuts…
Hooray – it’s my new tarts!
I’m totally addicted to wax tarts. From the moment the windows are closed in the fall until they are reopened in the spring I have a tart in the warmer. Obviously I love food scents, especially “comfort food” and bakery scents, but not citrus or berry ones. I can’t stand “fresh” or floral scents either – I have no idea why.
So far I’ve tried Fudge Brownie – which smells exactly like brownies fresh from the oven, Pumpkin Pie – which smells almost like the pumpkin pie I made this week, and Snickerdoodle – which I think smells just like my favorite cookie but Princess says is more like frosted cinnamon rolls.
In any case, they all make our house smell delicious! A vast improvement over the “eau de poo” that sometimes lingers near the changing table.
Not only do they smell great, they’re really pretty too. The last bunch of handmade tarts I bought were just small squares – yummy to smell but not as nice to look at.
Since I turn the warmer on first thing in the morning and don’t turn it off until I go to bed, my tarts usually only last two days but these are soft enough to easily cut in half, and scented enough that just half a tart will still last two days. Gotta love that!
I wonder how long a quarter tart would last…
Do you like tarts? What are your favorite scents?
