A Luxury Village By the Sea
After settling into this perfect little palace, I did what I always do first; break out the candles. I had gifted myself a full set of the UnEarthed® travel tin candles as a pre-vacation present. Yes, I was the person who designed the fragrance, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting to enjoy the finished product. When I opened my gorgeous fragrances, I experienced something I rarely do. Fragrance overload! You see, I work in fragrance, and when you’re in it all day, you can’t smell it. I never take multiple candles home, so it was actually new for me to open four scents at one time. I had forgotten just how powerful UnEarthed® fragrance can be.
Crystal Waters & Sea Salt
I was in a luxurious village by the sea, so I picked Crystal Waters & Sea Salt. I know how impatient I am, and that I would want the scent to “activate” quickly, so I actually brought the Crystal Waters & Sea Salt™ Concentrated Room Spray along with me too (do other people do this?). I took a good book, a refreshing drink and my goodies to the gorgeous teal mother-in-law suite upstairs and lit the 6 oz. candle then sprayed the room so I didn’t have to wait for the melt pool to develop. Normally, by the time the spray dies down a little, the melt pool is right about where you need it to fill the room. Later, when I lit it without the spray, I learned this little fragrance packs a quick punch! A SIX OUNCE candle scented the entire large bedroom, and I mean, powerfully and quickly! I almost called back to the factory the 2nd-day to ask them to quick-ship me a bigger candle. I mean it was the only vacation I was taking for the year and the scent is almost as important to me as a great outfit for dinner out! I know, I know, again, I designed these fragrances, so why am I talking like I’ve never smelled them before? Well, because there is a huge difference in attempting to formulate a fragrance at work, surrounded by seven-hundred other scents and relaxing at home or on vacation, away from work and really enjoying the scents to their fullest.
You Can't Take too Many Scents on Vacation!
Anyway, I came to my senses and realized how many candles I already had with me. I mean, I would be lucky to burn through the entire set of candles. Okay, so earlier, I said I brought my travel tin set with me, but I neglected to mention the other two candles I brought (again, do other people do this?). My choices were Crema di Lavanda™ (for relaxing) and Biscotti Royale™ (because I like foody in the kitchen). I lit my Vanilla Robusto™ travel tin in the living room. I love that it has a masculine edge to it. I would say I can’t quite put my finger on it but you know I can. It’s a smoked vanilla. That’s why I named it Vanilla Robusto™. Robusto is a thicker variation of Cuban cigar. Non-Cuban cigar companies also use the term Robusto but I like to think this fragrance is closer to a really smooth Cuban.
Vanilla Robusto™ is just a really nice, mellow but powerful scent. I think if I had to pick a correct occasion for the fragrance, it would be for relaxing, for company, or for relaxing with company. It took three afternoons just to burn through my first votive so needless to say, I didn’t get to burn through all of them. I’m not complaining at all, I’ll just have to save the feedback on the other fragrances for another post. I was, however, able to thoroughly experience one other fragrance,
