Tara's Candle Cottage haul and scent review

Tara's Candle Cottage

I ordered tarts when she was doing a bonus bag giveaway w/ a certain number of facebook likes.
The tat was decent based on the huge response she got, 8/11 paid -- arrived 8/27. Everything was packaged very cute and arrive in great condition. I also askedd for custom labels since she advertises they are free on her home page, but she didn't make them or respond to my request. Its ok though, I am sure she was super busy.
I am keeping the review simple so I can pump it out faster. I am backlogged, as you can tell by the dates above. eep!

Canteloupe - no descrip available.
--very sweet and melony

Candy Corn--Just like opening a bag of real candy corn. Capturing the delicious, comforting sweetness of the classic Fall treat.
--smells a lot like buttercream frosting

Peeps--Butter creme and vanilla bean are folded into fluffy white marshmallow and sweet sugar to tempt the senses
--definitely sugary marshmallow

Purple Cow--Remember those grape popsicles with vanilla ice cream inside from when you were small? If so then you'll appreciate this sweet and nostalgic scent.
--this smells delicious and is my favorite from this order. It smells like grape pixie stix to me!

German Chocolate Chip Cookies--50% Chocolate Chip Cookies,25% Caramel Sugar Crunch, 25% Bahama Coconut.
--very delicious coconut and chocolate - I got three of these!

Lime Frosted Marshmallow Cake--50% Toasted Marshmallow, 25% Birthday Cake,25% Key Lime Pie.
--smells like I expected it to, which seems to be a rarity for this scent blend. She does it very well! So glad I got three of these!

Cake Batter Ice Cream - no descrip available.
--smells just like the ice cream from coldstone, yum!

Raspberry Zinger - no descrip available.
--a classic fave for tarts, coconut, raspberry and twinkies! :D

cold throw on all of these is not super strong but decent, and I haven't experienced the hot throw yet. I will definitely be melting some soonish and will try my best to report back with how that went. :)

Bonus Bag contained three tarts, a room spray and some candies!
Cranberry Apple Marmalade Room Spray - smells like apples and red hots! This reminds me of the wassail drink we have around Christmas time. :)

Pumpkin Crunch Cake - The aroma of creamy pumpkin pie filling with rich eagle brand milk; surrounded with freshly baked yellow cake, melted butter, pecans, and hints of spice.
--I get a little pumpkin and a lot of cinnamon in this one

Iced Cinnamon Rolls - Warm cinnamon sticky bun drizzled with sweet white frosting.
--sweet, bready and very cinnamony!

Grandma's Swiggin' Eggnog - no descrip available.
--this one is not overly cinnamony, but is creamy and sweet smelling.
