Tonight in my Warmer; Marshmallow Ambrosia!
Candles by Victoria, so tonight I picked Marshmallow Ambrosia.
This scent came as an individual 2 ounce "scent shot".
I was looking through the website, there are a TON of scents to choose from, plus there are SAMPLER PACKS! Whoo hoo!
Candles by Victoria describes this scent as
"Marshmallow Ambrosia~ A wonderful combination of marshmallows and fruit.. this is a yummy scent!"
Marshmallow Ambrosia smells exactly like you think it would...like MARSHMALLOWS!
It's sweet, sugary, and warm, with a scent that's not quite vanilla.
This seems very much a Fall type of scent, although I'm not sure why. I don't think I eat anymore marshmallows in Autumn than I do any other time of year. Maybe because its a home-y type fragrance, which is a change of pace from the tropical types that seem to dominate during the summer time.
I didn't get much of the fruity notes until after the tart had melted. I can't tell what type of fruit it is supposed to be, but you can tell that there is a little extra "oomph" in it. I don't think its a berry or citrus, my guess (emphasis on guess) would be apple, or apricot?
I love that the fruit is there, but doesn't overpower the marshmallow scent.
Marshmallow Ambrosia is a great scent on its own, but I think I will also try tossing it in my electric warmer with Pink Sugar. It would add a rich full bodied sweetness with a touch of fruit. There are a ton of Pink Sugar blends out there, but I think this would be a good one too.
I like to think of marshmallow as vanilla's cousin. They are so similar, they are both sweet and incredibly versatile.I love vanilla with a passion so no doubt marshmallow with be another regular in my lineup. :)
