Scents may come from our regular scent list or may be random blends that you can recreate in our CYO (create your own) section should you fall in love with the blend.

Wax Melt FAQ
Q: What kind of wax do you use?
A: Effective September 2017 -- our wax is now a custom blend of 100% paraffin waxes. We formulated it to be firm, but easily sliceable.
Q: Do I need to cure your wax?
A: No, you do not. It is ready to melt when you receive it, but you are certainly welcome to cure if you wish. I'm not the boss of you ;)
Q: What kind of warmer works best with your new wax?
A: I tested our new formula in a Glade 13-watt, Glade 20-Watt, and a 24-watt warmer (all hotplate styles). I personally didn't find the 13-watt to be strong enough for many scents. The 20-watt performed well with the majority of scents -- this wattage gave a nice throw and allowed the scent to linger longer. The 24-watt gave a banging throw on most scents, but the scent didn't last as long (tip if using this wattage: turn off the melter once it has melted and permeated the air -- turn on again later and repeat the process until the scent is gone). I did not test in any bulb warmers. I encourage you to try different warmer styles and wattages to find what works best for you and your home.

Based on the scent description, I just knew I'd like this, but I don't. When this is cold, the Butterscotch Brulee is the most prominent scent, and as it begins to melt the Leather takes center stage, at least for a while. After this had been on the warmer for about 30 minutes, my husband started walking around sniffing at our computers and various other electronics. He thought that perhaps we had an electric something-or-other experiencing a meltdown. When he walked by the warmer, he realized that what he was smelling was this blend. I didn't notice that; rather, at the 30-minute mark, I thought this smelled a bit like a furniture store, and that made sense to me, given the Leather scent. At the 60-minute mark, though, this changed; the Butterscotch Brulee became more prominent, but the resulting scent was something I had a hard time identifying. And then, an hour later, as I waited for this to do that really lovely thing a lot of TDC wax scents do a couple of hours in, I realized that the scent I couldn't readily identify was that of nail polish remover. That's what this smells like to me. I don't really detect the Sandalwood, and I've not smelled the Leather or the Butterscotch Brulee on their own, so I don't know if it's just one of the scents or the combination of the three that isn't quite pleasing to my olfactory system. While it's too bad that I don't love this, all is not lost! This did have great throw, and it lasted, which is great for those who enjoy this scent. And thanks to this blend, I'll probably try Leather with one of TDC's tobacco scent later on, as I imagine those might work well together.
