Then it got me wondering, is there anything that doesn't smell awesome mixed with Pink Sugar? So I thought it would be fun to blend some Pink with different types of scent to see how it would turn out.
For the first round I thought it would be fun to blend PS with Spiced Cranberry. I'll be honest. I'm not a fan of Spiced Cranberry because it is chock full of cinnamon, although the cranberry notes are lovely. Spiced Cranberry is a scent that arrived in a sampler, and wouldn't have been something I would have chosen for myself. But I didn't want it to go to waste, which is why I thought mixing it with something else would be a great idea. I am hoping the Pink Sugar's sweetness will be enough to calm the spice, but allow the tart cranberry notes to shine.

So I decided to melt the Spiced Cranberry first, to get a feel of how it smells before the PS is added.
Spiced Cranberry is described by Briar Rose as " Tart cranberries smothered in a blend of cinnamon and spices. Top notes of red wine."
It melted and smelled like I thought it would, a warm and fruity type. Not as spicy as I had expected, but still a little out of my normal comfort zone.

95% of the wax community knows what PS is but just in case it's described as, "A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam on a dry down of musks." which is just a longer way to say "amazing".
So.....did it blend?
Yes, but, it didn't blend together as I had expected, and not as I had hoped. Instead of toning down the cinnamon as much as I would have liked, it toned down the cranberry a lot more. So instead of a sweet cranberry with a hint of spice, it was a sweet and spicy mix, with just a hint of fruit.
I wouldn't really consider this a success with me, but it would go over very well with most everyone else. Perhaps as a Christmas seasonal type (Sweet Cranberries, need I say more?).
