Wax Empties #19 | Wax I'm Melting

Saturday, March 10, 2018

I've been melting again, and that means it's time for another wax empties. I've listed each of the wax melts below, divided by brand or vendor, with the scent description and rating.  Happy Melting!

Sweet Sage Scents

Candy Cigarettes

Scent Description: Green tea, lemon, caramel, peppermint, teaberry, spearmint, wintergreen, vanilla

My Thoughts: 5/5; This smells spot on to the vintage candy!  It's very strong and worked well for me.  Yum!

Strawberry Soda Zucchini Bread

Scent Description: (self explanatory)

My Thoughts:  This smells just like the name with the strongest scent being the zucchini bread.


Cherry Berry

Scent Description: Fresh & Fruity

My Thoughts:  This smell like how an artificial cherry candy tastes.  I'm digging it.

Back Forty Wax Co


Scent Description: Juicy cranberry leads to a complex blend of pomegranate, strawberry, cherry, apple and raspberry at the heart of the scent. Hints of spice and a trace of green enrich the fruity aroma. Undertones of vanilla create a sugary background for the fruit blend.

My Thoughts: 5/5; This is a repeat purchase for me.  This one did really well for me and reminds me a lot of berries and champagne.


Scent Description: An Energizing blend of Sweet Orange, Spicy Ginger, Rosemary Essential Oils and dried Lemon Balm.

My Thoughts: 4/5; This is another repurchase for me.  This scent is very spicy with the ginger in it.  It is one that I like to put in when I'm studying.  I gave it a 4 because it doesn't last as long as other wax I've had.

Sinus Ease

Scent Description: A wonderful blend cool, crisp camphor, eucalyptus, and peppermint.

My Thoughts:  4/5; This is like vapor rub in wax form.


Scent Description: Apple, clementine zest, cool cranberry, juicy mandarin, red current, creamy vanilla, sweet amber, jasmine and rose.

My Thoughts: 4/5; This reminds me of a shampoo that I've smelled before with a fruity type of scent...in a good way.

Southern Sisters Wax

Jax Teller

Scent Description: no official one found as vendor has closed shop

My Thoughts: 5/5; This is a masculine scent with black licorice as the strongest note.  It's very unique to my nose and my current favorite scent.  I wish I had known that this vendor was quitting because I would have ordered 2 or 3 bags of this scent.

The Bunny Sisters


90s Party Punch

Scent Description: Fizzy pop, rainbow sherbet

My Thoughts:  5/5; This really does smell like the punch you'd have at every party in the 90s with the ginger ale and the tub of fruit goo. 

Salt Water Taffy

Scent Description: Raspberry, banana, strawberry, cherry, vanilla taffy

My Thoughts:  4/5; the vanilla taffy is the strongest note, followed by banana and the rest.  This is one of my favorite taffy scents as others tend to be heavy on the lemon (ie the walmart scent from last year.)  This one smells more like authentic hand pulled taffy.

Hayden Rowe Candle Co

Birch Beer

Scent Description: the herbal zingy goodness of a frosty cool bottle of what many refer to as 'the best soda you've never tasted'.  Made in a similar way to Root Beer, Birch Beer has many of the same notes but instead of creaminess, Birch Beer brings a crisp herbal finish. This fragrance is a unique, new scent that will appeal to the adventurous as well as fans of the uniquely refreshing beverage. 

My Thoughts: 5/5; This smelled dead on to how wonderful birch beer tastes.  It also lasted a surprisingly long time.  I was impressed!

Wilfred Wax


May the Fourth - Light Side

Scent Description:  A peaceful blend with the calming effect of a seaside breeze, accented with subtle florals and sea moss

My Thoughts: 3/5; This is a fresh aquatic scent with just a hint of moss and floral in the background.  The throw is okay, and I wish it would have lasted a bit longer.

Tuscany Candle

Black Magic Licorice

Scent Description: (none found but smells as the name suggests)

My Thoughts: 5/5; I love black licorice and this smells just like it tastes.  I also get a great throw in my wall unit.  Pleasantly surprised all around.

Swan Creek Candle Co

Birthday Cake

Scent Description: (none found but it smells as the name suggests)

My Thoughts: 5/5; This is a warm and rich vanilla cake scent.  I like this one because it throws much better than most vanilla fragrances I've encountered. This company seems to do bakery vanilla well.  This one is added to my list along with Vanilla Pound Cake which was heaven.

Hibiscus Green Tea

Scent Description:  (none found but this is a very fresh and green scent)

My Thoughts: 5/5; I've had this scent in a candle before, but it didn't throw well at all.  Thankfully, this melt does very well.  It has a nice clean, green scent that isn't sharp or harsh at all like green scents that come out around winter time.  This one is totally for spring.

Night Owl Candle Co


Scent Description: a refreshing, minty spearmint aroma

My Thoughts:  4/5; This is straight up spearmint. I love it, but I wish it was just a wee bit stronger and lasted longer.

Cherry Ginger Ale

Scent Description:  (none found but smells as name suggests)

My Thoughts: 5/5; This smell like you took ginger ale and pour cheerwine soda syrup in it.  It performs quite well for me, and I could huff on it all day.
