This is a review of the new Tuscany Candle Winter/Holiday/Christmas 2015 Limited Edition Scented Wax Melts. These are different from the standard Tuscany holiday scents, and seem to be a higher quality with better scents and throw. (You can see my review and video of the standard Tuscany holiday scents at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2015/11/tuscany-candle-winter-holiday-christmas-scents.html.)

Watch video below:



Gingerbread House
Yummy authentic gingerbread scent, with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and a bready note.
Throw: 3.5

Frosted Cookies
This smells like a combination of their standard Grandma's Sugar Cookie scent mixed with a sweet buttercream. Very nice!
Throw: 4

Cinnamon Spice
I wasn't even going to smell this one because I don't like straight cinnamon, but this one is definitely not straight cinnamon, and it's not exactly what you'd expect based on the name. This is a delectable scent, not a fall scent. It smells like you're melting butter and sugar with a little bit of cinnamon and just a smidgeon of vanilla. It's also not a bakery scent, as I don't smell bread or cake. Rich and yummy!
Throw: 4

Evergreen & Balsam
I think this is same scent as the standard Tuscany scent by the same name. It's not overly piney, and has a very slightly sweet note, like maybe a smidgeon of vanilla. It also has a very slightly barely noticeable nuttiness. Very pleasant scent.
Throw: 4

Cranberry Champagne
It smells like wine, with that fermentation note, but it's a different scent from Tuscany Christmas Cranberry (from their standard holiday 2015 line), which also smells like wine but with more of a nauseating vinegar note. This one has more of a cranberry note than wine.
Throw: 4

Winter
This is the most interesting of all 6 scents, with lots of different notes in it on cold sniff. I get a lot of mint, but not a sweet peppermint or spearmint. In fact, it's not overly sweet, and definitely not a candy cane type scent. I also smell vanilla, amber, and a very slight smoky woodsy note. It's not strong on cold sniff.

This is a Jekyll & Hyde scent, as it did an about face on me and turned into something else entirely when melted. It smells a little like a fresh mint plant from the backyard, very herbal, but really more like parsley with a mediciney note. Almost like the wax is really old, but I don't think it is. I don't smell the vanilla, amber, or smoky woodsy notes either while melted. Disappointed, but the throw is weak so it actually doesn't smell awful in the room. Just not what I expected based on cold sniff.
Throw: 2
