This new Tuscany "In the Garden - Spring in Bloom" scented wax melts line from Joann Fabric features 3 new scents for 2016. For me, these scents were duds. I just didn't like the way they smelled, and throw wasn't great.

Lavender Crumpets
"Herbal Lavender and Vanilla Caramel"
This smells like herbal lavender with a medicinal note, combined with a bakery note. It smells odd, like two scents that should not be put together. If the lavender were more floral and not so medicinal, this might work. Melted, it's definitely more of an herbal medicinal lavender scent, and the bakery is way in the background. After about an hour, I couldn't smell the bakery at all. I don't really care for this scent as it's a bit too medicinal. I think a little bit of vanilla mixed in would help this scent. Throw was good, around a 3 out of 5.

Blue Sage
"Spring Blue Sage and Soothing Sea Salt"
This one is very light on cold sniff. I smell the sage, but it smells more like herbal lavender than sage. And I do smell a salty note. This is definitely a spa scent, but a little too herbal. It might smell better with a bit more sweetness added. Melted, it just smelled like medicinal lavender but a little more savory due to the sea salt. Like the Lavender Crumpets, it was too savory for my tastes. And the throw was not good, maybe a 2 out of 5.

Water Hyacinth
"Aged Amber and Blue Lotus"
This is a pleasant watery scent with a sweet floral, but not really flowery. It smells like a fresh sweet herbal body wash with a slight floral note. I don't smell any amber. On cold sniff it smells nice, but when melted it had kind of chemical floral scent that I didn't care for, like a cleaning type scent that should be used to cover up other scents. It wasn't awful, but not good enough for me to melt on a regular basis. Throw was good, around a 3 out of 5.
