My favorite

I've tried 4 out of the 6 scents, and the creosote is my favorite. They all have been great, but this one in particular is for me. It is floral without being overpowering or like Potpourri. If I were to pick one and stick with it, this would be the one.

Wonderful smell! Very earthy and grounding!

Smells amazing

It's a difficult smell for me to describe well but it smells so good. It's slightly earthy but a little spicy/sweet at the same time. The wax melts seem to retain their smell for a while and do a great job of making the whole space smell great.

Alatreyu's fragrances are unusual. Creosote is similar to petrichor but with a bit more sweetness. It could be off-putting to less adventurous folks, but good for those with eclectic taste. It smells like inside of a car with leather upholstery a humid day, with a hint of woodiness.
