Wax Melt Quick Reviews in Video Order

Save Your Scentses - Cherry Almond Zucchini Bread

Scent Description:  n/a

It had a medium scent throw and a great blend.  I really loved the cherry with the almond especially.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Balsam and Cedar

Scent Description:  Balsam, aromatic cedar wood and juniper berry blend together in a fresh forest scent.

The scent was true to the name.  It had a great throw and lasted forever.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Sparkling Cinnamon

Scent Description:  Holiday glow…the spicy warmth of real imported stick cinnamon with a hint of cloves.

This is more like a potpourri cinnamon instead of a gourmet or red hot candy cinnamon.  It had a nice throw and lasted awhile.

New Moon Candles - A Walk in the Woods

Scent Description:  A house blend of of all your favorite woodsy scents. Sandlewood, Teakwood and Cedar.

The scent was a bit cologne like with a mix of woods and leaves. It had a pretty good throw.

New Moon Candles - Caramel Pecan Pie

Scent Description:  A mouthwatering fragrance combining coconut, cocoa, vanilla and butter rum.

The throw was okay, but it didn't last long at all.

Febreze - Gain

Scent Description: (no official found, but smells like the detergent)

This is one of my all time favorites.  It's a laundry bomb.  Glorious!

Deer Ridge Candles - Vanilla

Scent Description:  (none found)

This didn't have much throw, but I think that was the packaging.  It wasn't in an actual poly bag, and I've had it quite awhile.

Chloe and Me Candles - Butter Pecan Shortbread

Scent Description:  (none listed)

This is an awesome blend that is true to life.  The throw was great and it lasted a long time.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Bubbly Pomegranate

Scent Description:  A festive mix of juicy berries and pomegranate on top of effervescent citrus.

This is one of my favorite scents ever.  It smells just like a purple gum ball tastes.  The throw was stellar as was the scent duration.  If this comes back next year, I will be ordering a couple more from Yankee for sure.

Save Your Scentses - Bluebird

Scent Description:  Fresh Blueberries + Bird of Paradise; a house blend

This was fresh and fruity.  The throw was great.

Better Homes and Gardens - Brownie Pecan Pie (Scent Bursts)

Scent Description: n/a

These didn't do anywhere near as well as the melts despite being more expensive.  I won't repurchase.

Front Porch - Patchouli Hippie Chick

Scent Description:  (none listed)

This was a hippie scent that smells like a new age incense store. So, I LOVE IT!

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Luscious Plum

Scent Description:  Exquisitely rich and festive … the scent of sugar-coated plums is a Christmas fantasy come true.

The throw was very strong.  It was very perfume like and I couldn't finish it.  Perfume scents give me a head ache.

Scentsationals - Day Dream

Scent Description:  Lush Greens and Spiced Jasmine

This is a very unique scent blend, especially for Walmart retail wax.  The throw was okay, but it could have been better.  It also didn't last very long.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Sugared Apple

Scent Description:  The perfect recipe of juicy apples sprinkled with sugar and vanilla.

I didn't like the scent of this one at all.  It also had very little scent throw.

New Moon Candles - Pomegranate Mint

Scent Description:  (none listed)

This one was amazing!  They were little melts shaped like candy canes with North Pole signs on them. It threw amazingly well and lasted a long time.  The blend was spot on.  I missed them when they were gone.  I would order these again in a heart beat!

New Moon Candles - Spiced Crumb Cake

Scent Description:  Warm, rich bakery tones are blended with creamed butter and grated cinnamon, while hints of almond and maple add sweetness as a base of creamed vanilla lingers to tease the senses.

The scent smelled just like the description.  The throw was about a medium. 

Chloe and Me - Vanilla Bean Noel

Scent Description:  a rich, smooth and unique interpretation of bath and body works vanilla bean noel

This was amazing!  Bath and Body Works wishes it could come close to this!

Better Homes and Gardens - Snowy Winter Woods*

Scent Description:  n/a

This is one of my go to wax melts.  It's not anything special performance-wise, but it makes me feel like I'm in a fancy log cabin.  I love it.

Candles from the Keeping Room - Bohemian Raspberry*

Scent Description:  A fruity blend of blackberry, peach, raspberry & strawberry notes with a violet and rosewood middle note lying on a bed of woody patchouli leaves.

This was a fruit hippie scent.  Naturally, I loved it.  The strongest note was patchouli.  It reminded me of incense.

Deer Ridge Candles - Lemon Buttercream*

Scent Description:  n/a

This one didn't have any throw for me.  I do think a big factor in that was me not repackaging them into poly bags.  It just had a flimsy roll over bag.

Scensei - Iced Rootbeer Float

Scent Description:  Just like being at the old fashioned soda shop and ordering a rootbeer float. This scent is The refreshing aroma of a rootbeer soda combined with the sweetened creaminess of vanilla ice cream.

This smelled dead on.  It threw great. Yum!

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Candied Pecans

Scent Description: Fresh from the oven, warm pecans glazed with caramel, sugar and vanilla.

I didn't enjoy this one on its own.  The throw was pretty weak.

Barrett Wax Crafts - Santa's Candy

Scent Description:  Apple, Wild Cherry, Winter Mint

This smells exactly like the tins of mixed old fashioned hard candy that you buy around Christmas time.  The throw was excellent as well. Yes!

Sonoma - Falling Leaves

Scent Description: n/a

This one has a unique scent especially as fall scents go.  It was really enjoyable and had a medium throw.

Save Your Scentses - Maple Sugar

Scent Description:  n/a

This smells just like the name. Delicious!

Helen's Wax Melts - Berry Fizzer

Scent Description: n/a

It smells just like the name.  It had an average throw and average duration.

Save Your Scentses - Lavender 'Nilla

Scent Description:  French lavender with a milky vanilla counterpart.  Not as sweet as our “Sweet Lavender"

This was the best bed time melt ever!  It was great.  I would repurchase in a heart beat.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Alpine Martini

Scent Description:  Celebrate with a tart concoction spiked with mountain berries and a sprig of fresh-snipped pine.

This is a new favorite scent for me: a fruity martini.  It threw like a beast as well.  Yes!

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Winter Garden

Scent Description:  Quitely captivating . . . the refreshing scent of lush evergreen branches captured in icy splendor.

This is a green scent with a cool background.  I liked the scent, but it didn't have much throw.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Christmas Cookie

Scent Description:  Buttery rich, vanilla scented, holiday sugar cookies.

This smelled like delicious sugar cookies.  It had an awesome throw!

New Moon Candles - Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

Scent Description:  A warm waffle topped with pumpkin maple syrup, highlighted with sweet vanilla butter and crushed pecans.

This was so good.  It was just like the BBW scent but better.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Christmas Wreath

Scent Description:  Fresh-cut boughs and branches of pine, balsam, and hollyberry.

This was a dark green, bitter scent.  This threw pretty well.

Helen's Wax Melts - Helen's Birthday Box

Scent Description: n/a

This didn't throw very well.

Yankee Candle Melt Cup - Sparkling Snow

Scent Description:  (couldn't find)

I really enjoyed this one.  It was light on cold, but it was strong and fresh melting.  Loved it!

New Moon Candles - Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow

Scent Description:  Luscious buttercream, sweet vanilla bean and creamed marshmallow with hints of spiced cinnamon.

This had a medium throw.  It was very heavy on the pumpkin.

Scensei - Creamy Fried Ice Cream

Scent Description:  The scent of rich buttery whipped ice cream, filled with vanilla bean essence, and evoking hints of toasted nut and grated cinnamon which meld easily with a base note of melted marshmallow. Truly a treat for the scent sensations!

I thought this smelled foul on cold.  It smelled wonderful on a warmer, though, like warm vanilla goodness.
