Lemon Blackberry Pie

Yum!  The scent we got going in the warmers on this snowy night (I am talking about about a foot of snow!!!)  is Lemon Blackberry Pie from CBV. 
The scent is close to Lemon Meringue, Lemon Pound Cake and Lemon Gingersnap Pie.  The blackberry note is not there that much cold but when warmed it peeks out a bit.  I don't know if I would have been able to pick that scent out without having the Blackberry Mousse Soap though.  Since I had that and just used it, I could detect that note.  It is a really comforting warm scent, but I do prefer Lemon Gingersnap Pie.

Jelly Donut

The CBV scent of the day is Jelly Donut, which is a strawberry jelly-filled donut scent... and let me tell you, it is YUM!
I was not sold on this on first sniff, maybe because I don't enjoy jelly-filled donuts in real life.  The scent just  seemed too strong and tart.  Warmed up, OMG!  You definitely get the juicy sticky strawberry filling first, then the doughy saltiness of the donut comes out.   I think I would like this one even more in candle form and may have to get this in an  8 oz in my next order.  It is an nice change in pace from the normal bakery scents.  :)

Hot Maple Latte

Today's scent is one of the wonderful coffee scents that Candles by Victoria offers.  Maple Latte is described as a balanced blend of roasted coffee bean and sweet dark maple syrup topped with sweet cream. 
Warm, this smells just like that.  You get the bitter coffee bean sweetened with the cream and maple.  I am not a huge fan of maple and it is a bit much for me, but Cynthia really likes this one.  I don't think it is her favorite coffee scent, but it doesn't disappoint either!

Fuzzy Navel

No, I do not have furry stuff growing out of my navel, lol.  I am talking about the scent called "Fuzzy Navel" from Candles by Victoria, which is amazing! 
This is peach, orange and a bit of fizzy and that description is pretty dead on.  It is really juicy smelling and strong.  If you have tried Raspberry Guava, Mango Smoothie, or Champagne Pomegranate and liked them, you will like this as well.  It is in the same vein as those scents. 

We have this going in the warmer right now, but earlier today we had an 8 oz jar of Elvis lit.  Love that fragrance.... a mix of peanut butter and banana.. perfection!
