Help me solve the mystery tealight scent!!!

OK, so normally I just toss all my old samplers into a basket, and use those as give-a-ways at shows and what not. I have started labeling each tealight/votive so I nkow that they are in the right spot.
Well, I didn't label this one!!
I have no idea how "old" it is!
it is WHITE and smells like powder.
Not any of the vanilla scents
not any spa scents
and not citronella
not gardenia either


so what is it??

That Holiday one.... from a couple of years ago...

Carp... sounds like... Starts with an S...

How old can this candle be?
is it WHITE or IVORY?

Ivory could be Birthday Cake

It's not Iced Snowberries.
My BFF said "sun kissed cotton"
I about hugged her!!
I gave her a bunch of free wax because of it!

I tell you it HAS TO BE sun kissed cotton! What other white candle smelled of powder? (and M~ it is WHITE, not ivory)

What I know is that it is WHITE, but not "super white"
it is not a food smelling candle...I smelled all my other labeld ones, and it isn't even close
It's not a spa candle, those have a distinct after "bite".. and this one doesn't.

It's NOT white gardenia truffle.. That one is a favorite, I know that one!

I can't stand the smell of the citronella ones, so it's not that either.

My BFF smelled it and said "do you have a candle that smells like cotton?"

Sun kissed cotton!! it has to be that one! (OK, so it is GOING to be that one whether it likes it or not!!)

Anyone else have any other suggestions??




Anyone want to help me guess what the PINK ONES are????

Funny!


One to maybe two years old... I give them away like candy at halloween! So not older than that.
The color reminds me of Stargazer Lilly. That Fuschia pink. not too dark though. I have two of them left, so I bought a dozen, so it was one I thought I liked.

It isn't Straw-rhubarb or Straw-anything. it isn't mulberry.. it's lighter colored than that. It can't be one of the ice cream scented ones.. I never bought those for myself. It's kind of fading.. that stinks in helping to figuring it out!

Start naming pink/fucshia scents...
something will jog my memory..

Could the white have been Jasmine? If they are all stored together for a long time it is so hard to tell what the true scent is until you burn them.
