Tonight in my warmer; Glitter!

Tonight I'm melting an amazing scent from Zen Blossom.. Glitter! I love trying scents with ambiguous names. While this tart doesn't actually have glitter in it, its a beautiful tart with an amazing scent.
Glitter is described as "A feminine, yet confident and alluring aroma combining sheer floral notes of iris, jasmine, water lily, orchid, and white rose, with clean, fresh top notes of neroli and pink grapefruit blossoms and sexy bottom notes of sandalwood, soft musk, and tonka bean."

Glitter is pretty complex, but boy does it sparkle! (get it...sparkle?) On first sniff, it reminds me of Lilac Linens I tried last Sunday. It's clean with very light floral top notes, although you aren't able to tell which florals. Generally I can spot rose or jasmine, but perhaps because it's so light, and mixed with other notes its hard to tell.  After the fresh and floral scents, there is something else. The base notes of sandalwood and musk really give this scent a lot of depth.
Once it's melted, the florals fade quite a bit and the freshness really shines through. It smells like sandalwood that's been scrubbed until sparkly clean. Glitter is uplifting, bright, and a great alternative for a fresh linen type.


  1. The name screams Nicole! If I had seen this before you, I would have had to get it for you. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

  2. This sounds like such an interesting fragrance, I might have to give it a try.

    Btw, I am new to your blog and new to candle warming. I notice that you always have such lovely tart warmers. Would you mind blogging about warmers? Your preference...tealight vs. electric. Which type emit a stronger throw, what to look for when buying a warmer, etc.?

  3. Absolutely, I would love to. A lot of people have questions regarding electric vs. tealight.
