This is a review of the Tuscany Candle New 2015 Limited Edition Fall Scented Wax Melts. I believe there are a total of 14 scents available. As is often the case with Tuscany, the scents did not last very long when melted, maybe two hours tops. Which is good only if you like swapping out different scents throughout the day. The caramely spicy scents lasted a little longer, maybe 3 or 4 hours. And in general, throw was mediocre with a few exceptions, which I find is often the case with Tuscany.

Scent Name Scent Description
Alpine Cabin Very hard to describe, maybe soapy baby powder with a hint of wood and possibly a smidgeon of barely noticeable pine. It's neither a masculine nor feminine scent, and it doesn't smell anything like the Alpines or a log cabin. It's nice though, but throw isn't very good.
Apples & Oak Leaves I like scents that are a little "different" from standard run-of-the-mill scents, and this one definitely is. It's a musty earthy slightly woodsy scent that smells a little like dirt, combined with really old brown leaves on the ground and a couple of apples. But in a good way! Kind of like Autumn Citrus & Cinnamon below, but after the leaves and apples have been sitting on the ground for a few extra weeks. Throw is mediocre.
Autumn Citrus & Cinnamon Slightly woodsy apple with a smidgeon of spice (cinnamon and clove I think). It's not a very sweet apple, almost like an overripe older apple towards the end of the fall season. I think I also detect a tiny bit of orange perhaps? Nice scent with good throw.
Brandied Cherries Sweet maraschino cherries with a hint of something rich like vanilla or sweet cream. Unfortunately throw was very light.
Cranberry Chutney This really smells like cranberry sauce! Sweet, tart and strong, with great throw.
Fall Festival Just another standard cinnamony fall scent. Nothing really stands out. Mediocre throw.
Ginger Spiced Biscotti A hint of ginger and a spice cake note, but no throw. And there's a burnt chemical note up close when melting.
Glazed Pear Fresh sweet pear. A little "fake" but still good. Very good throw.
Marshmallow Graham This one smells amazing! I can smell the salty sweetness of the graham cracker and the richness of the marshmallow. Excellent throw, but scent faded in less than 2 hours.
Oh My, Pumpkin Pie I smelled this one in the store but didn't buy it. It smelled like a standard pumpkin pie fragrance, but not as good as other brands I have.
Pecan Pie Nutty caramely bakery scent. Good throw.
Pumpkin Brittle Rich salty sweet caramel with a barely noticeable fall spice note. Great throw.
Rosemary & Thyme I could not find this one, but I've heard it has a savory sage "Thanksgiving stuffing" note rather than lemony thyme.
Sugared Walnuts On cold sniff this has an unappealing bitter note. Melted, that weird bitterness filled the room and resulted in a combination of a rich burnt sugar... and spoiled food or stinky feet. I get that they were going for that slight bitterness of the walnut, but it didn't work. This was awful.
