Tuscany Candle Spring Wax Melts Review - April 2016

Tuscany Candle Spring Wax Melts Review - April 2016

Tuscany Candle Spring Wax Melts - April 2016
Click photo to view larger image

Watch video below:



I believe these are part of Tuscany Candle's spring collection (with 3 additional scents which I reviewed at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2016/03/tuscany-candle-in-garden-spring-bloom.html). I found these at Christmas Tree Shops (http://www.christmastreeshops.com) in mid-April 2016. I don't know if they're new scents or older, discontinued scents. The top line is the scent name, the second line is the description on the package, and the paragraph underneath is my review of that scent.

Blood Orange
"Citrus Blast"
This is a holiday pomander scent, which is a mix of orange and cloves. It's the same scent they use in a lot of their orange scents, including Orange Vanilla. It's a strong scent, but not a spring or summer scent. I'm not a fan of that orange pomander scent, but that's just a personal preference. Throw is excellent.

Salted Caramel Cake
"Sea Salt, Brown Sugar and Vanilla"
This really smells like caramel. The brown sugar note is very strong. This is not as salty as some other brands of salted caramel scents (like Yankee). Yummy scent! Throw is excellent.

Cotton Candy
"Sugary Airy Sweet"
Tuscany's Cotton Candy scent breaks the "cotton candy curse" (as in, I've never found a cotton candy scented wax melt that had a strong throw). This is a totally authentic cotton candy scent, with that sticky strawberry/lemon sugary note. And the throw is very good to excellent. Fantastic scent!

Ocean Pebbles
"Sea Heather and Driftwood"
This smells like a fresh men's body wash, kind of like "Cool Water". It's very strong on cold sniff and throw is excellent.

Strawberry Cake
"Fresh Strawberries and Buttercream Frosting"
This smells exactly like strawberry shortcake. On cold sniff, a lot of Tuscany scents have a weird sour or waxy note, and this one is no exception. But you don't smell that sour waxy note when it's melted. I love this scent! And throw is good to very good.

Mountain Meadow
"Fresh and Clean"
This one is a bit weak on cold sniff. It's a sweet grassy floral but there's a slightly harsh note in there, like a sweet chemical, that I don't like. This smells a little like ScentSationals Orchard Breeze. Throw is fair to good, which was a pleasant surprise since I expected it to be weaker based on cold sniff.

Dandy Daisy
"Spring Daisies Lightened with Tonka"
Tonka is a type of vanilla, and I don't smell any kind of vanilla in this scent. It's not exactly a floral either. It's a fresh oceany scent with a hint of clean floral, like maybe a body wash or even a laundry type scent. It's a nice generic fresh scent. Throw is very good.

Puffed Petals
"Soft Florals Blended with Sugar Cane"
This smells like vanilla mixed with a floral and a warm ambery cashmere note. It's a very nice delicate, classy fragrance. Unfortunately, no throw at all.

Blushing Orchid
"Delicate and Wild"
A nice jasmine type floral scent with a green note and a smidgeon of soapiness that keeps it from being perfumey or too sweet. Barely any throw when melted.

Spring Rain
"Pure and Clean"
This one smells a little like Blushing Orchid but not as sweet and floral, and there's an additional note in there that makes it smells a little watery, but I'm not sure if I like that note and it's hard to describe. No throw when melted.

Goose Creek Candle Scented Wax Melts Review


Goose Creek Candle Scented Wax Melts Review - April 2016

Goose Creek Candle Scented Wax Melts
Click photo to view larger image

Watch video below:




This is the complete review for the "first look" review I did a few weeks ago: http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2016/03/goose-creek-candle-scented-wax-melts-first-look.html.

And take a look at the Goose Creek Candles Scented Wax Melts review I did for 20 different scents a few weeks ago: http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2016/03/goose-creek-candle-scented-wax-melts-0316.html.

Once again I took advantage of their sale (which seems to occur every few weeks), which is 20 wax melts for the price of 10, bringing the price of each wax melt down from their regular price of $4 each to a much more affordable $2 each (same as Walmart wax)

I like Goose Creek wax melts. I wish the wax were not so soft and messy (similar to Colonial Candles wax melts). And the round clamshells make the soft, messy wax difficult to get out of the package. Other than that, I'm very happy with my order. You always get a couple of duds with every order from every company, so I always expect that.

For the throw, instead of assigning a number score like I usually do (1 out of 5, 2 out of 5, etc.), I'm just going to say it's weak or fair or good or excellent, etc. Numbers mean different things to different people, so using words to describe the throw might be better.


Red Velvet Cupcake
"This bakery favorite opens with fresh frosting, orange zest, and dark berries. Sweet chocolate and cake batter combine with rich vanilla and brown sugar for a scrumptious, signature finish.
A pleasant cupcake type scent with chocolate notes and maybe a smidgeon of coconut. The chocolate is not a rich dark or overwhelming chocolate, but more of a light milk chocolate. There's also a very slight floral or perfumey quality. Looking at the scent notes, I guess I detect a smidgeon of berries and maybe that's the floral I think I smell. I don't smell orange at all, and I'm surprised there's no coconut.
Throw: Good

Black Amber Plum
"Sweet plums with a sparkle of mandarin leads into the floralcy of jasmine. A warm background of exotic black amber, vetiver, patchouli and musk create an elegant ending."
I definitely smell plum, but it also smells a little like some kind of dark fruity cough syrup, but in a good way. It has a "fig" note which makes it smell "classy". It might also have a very slight bakery note that makes it smell a little like some kind of thick dark fruity filling in a cake. It's a nice, rich plum scent. The scent started dissipating within 2 hours though.
Throw: Good

Golden Peach Vanilla
"Bright, fruity accords of sliced peaches, orange and lemon zest are blended with cinnamon and brown sugar for a rich and luscious experience. Highlights of buttery cake crumbs and vanilla extract emphasize this incredible flavor. "
On cold sniff, this is amazing, a super rich sweet vanilla pastry scent with a very slight rich raspberry note, and just a smidgeon of peach. Looking at the scent notes, I'm surprised there's no raspberry in there. I don't smell orange or lemon though. I really wanted this one to throw well, but disappointingly it didn't. In fact, while melting if I stick my nose really close the warmer, it has a little bit of a burnt chemical smell, and that's only after about a half hour. It smells so good on cold sniff though that I'm tempted to keep it just to open up the package and sniff it every now and then!
Throw: None

Blueberry Limeade
"Delight in this refreshing blend with notes of sweet lime, lemon, blueberry and strawberry. White sugar and vanilla sweeten this thirst quenching aroma."
This smells like a lime based alcoholic beverage, but I also smell the tart fruitiness of the blueberry. Sadly, the scent dissipated within only 2 hours.
Throw: Fair

Soothing Coconut
"The milky sweet aroma of an island true coconut. Bust it open and have a soothing sip. Orange, pineapple, coconut, musk, and vanilla. "
This is not a "fake" tropical coconut scent, but more of a light coconut with vanilla and a nutty note. Very nice. Looking at the scent notes, yes I think I do smell a slight pineapple note, but I don't smell orange or musk. Melted, this is a fantastic sweet coconut with a vanilla note and a smidgeon of pineapple.
Throw: Excellent

Clementine & Mango
"Bright and juicy notes of clementine, mango nectar, and pink grapefruit are accented by a heart of jasmine and succulent pineapple. This fun and fruity fragrance is finished with notes of warm amber, creamy sandalwood, and musk."
I can't figure out the notes in this one. I guess I smell mango and maybe a slight tangerine note, which may be the clementine. Looking at the scent notes, OK I do smell a pinch of pineapple and grapefruit. It smells sweet and juicy. Nice scent, but very similar to a lot of other scents.
Throw: Fair

Sunset Sparkle
"Enjoy the sparkle of a tropical sunset. Top notes of sweet berry and mandarin. The middle blends jasmine, and honeysuckle. The bottom combines amber, vanilla and a light essence of sandalwood. "
This smells a lot like ScentSationals Love Letters, but with a slight tropical fruit note. It smells like cashmere/amber with a hint of almond and a smidgeon of tropical fruit.
Throw: Weak

Tahitian Citrus
"Indulge in this mouth watering fruit medley as fresh lime zest, lemon sugar and sparkling grapefruit are touched with accents of whipped meringue, vanilla bean, sugar cane and Tahitian musk. "
This smells like rich salty lemon with maybe a hint of orange, but not like a drink, or even really bakery. There's also a touch of something savory in the background (which might be the grapefruit). It's really yummy, and it lasted all day. It smells a lot like Golden Peach Vanilla.
Throw: Excellent

A Christmas Story
"This is a cool balsam scent with notes of pine, orange blossom, and caramel musk. "
On cold sniff, it smells like neroli or some kind of orange blossom type of perfume, with pine and maybe a hint of eucalyptus, although it's not minty at all. It also has a musty note, but not in a bad way. It's a very nice, unique scent. Looking at the scent notes, they're right on! Melted, I only smell the musty pine and none of the orange blossom or caramel, but it's a unique pine, more like a spruce (not as savory as pine), similar to Colonial Candles Blue Spruce. Very nice, and it lasted all day.
Throw: Excellent

Autumn Romance
"Love is in the air with notes of warm amber crystals, brushed suede, creamy sandalwood, sensual amber, and sugared musk. "
On cold sniff, it smells like a sweet cashmere/amber type perfume with a smidgeon of apple notes and possibly a barely detectable smidgeon of patchouli. Melted, I don't smell any fruit or apple, just a beautiful rich, warm, soft cashmere amber scent, similar to Better Homes & Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber, but richer.
Throw: Excellent

Vanilla Pumpkin Waffle
"This decadent scent infuses delicious accords of pumpkin, butter and apple with a blend of pecans, maple and cinnamon. Vanilla, sugar, tonka and musk add depth for a mouthwatering experience. "
This is a super yummy scent that smells, well just like vanilla waffles. I don't smell pumpkin (not sure what that smells like anyway) or any type of fall spices, which is good. And there's no maple. It smells just like warm thick doughy waffles with butter and a little bit of powdered sugar (although it's not really a sweet scent), and possibly a couple of nuts since it has a slightly nutty note. Actually it kind of smells like funnel cake. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell apple, maple, or cinnamon at all.
Throw: Excellent

Summer Sherbet
"Summer Sherbet is a rainbow of flavors. With orange, lemon, lime, peach and raspberry. "
This smells like berry flavored Kool-Aid. I smell a "Tang" powdered orange type scent, and maybe also lemon and some kind of red berry. Melted, it has a bit of a fake citrus cleaner note, not a kitchen lemon but maybe some kind of floor cleaner with a hint of lime. It's a nice refreshing scent but not my favorite. Throw wasn't great either, and the scent was gone within 3 hours.
Throw: Fair

Sipping Tea
"This delightfully refreshing fragrance blends tea leaves with bursts of chilled lemonade and lime juice while accords of pear nectar, crystallized sugar, mimosa and musk adds a soothing sensation. "
This smells like salty lemon sugar with a note of black tea. It's like sweetened iced tea with lemon. The tea notes are light, and it's not a chai tea. Very nice scent. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect mimosa (floral?) or musk, but there is a slight warmth in the background that may be the musk. When melted, I smell more of the tea.
Throw: Excellent

Toasty Hot Toddy
"The scent of toasty hot toddy is a delicious maple treat. It is concocted with the sweet notes of buttery toasted pecans, dark rum, and cinnamon sticks. "
This smells like rich cinnamon french toast with butter, maple syrup, and nuts. It's a yummy fall scent. Looking at the scent notes, they're right on. Although this is definitely a bakery scent rather than a beverage.
Throw: Excellent

Pineapple Sea Spray
"This unique blend combines fresh ocean water with freshly cut pineapple. Enjoy top notes of bergamot, pineapple and fresh watery ozone. The middle combines pink peppercorn, white peach and light jasmine. The bottom contains blonde woods, skin musk and a light dose of vanilla. "
Even if you're not a fan of pineapple scents (like me), you might still like this one because the pineapple note is more in the background. This smells like a fresh clean body wash with a salty ocean note and just a bit of pineapple in the background to give it a slightly tropical vibe. Nice and summery! Looking at the notes, I think I do detect a smidgeon of peach and floral. This one lasted for 24 hours!
Throw: Excellent

Black Leather
"Top notes of leather and bergamot. Suede, cardamom and moss enrich the heart leading into warming base notes of amber, musk, cedar and sandalwood. "
I'm so glad I took a chance on this one, as I was afraid it would just smell like leather. But it's so much more. It smells like leather, tobacco, clove, and smoky wood. A nice warm, masculine scent. The tobacco is not a sweet pipe tobacco, but more of a cigarette tobacco, but not in a bad way. This is not a sweet scent, nor is it a cologne, scent, but there is a slight cologne note that gives it a hint of sweetness. The smokiness is almost like a liquid smoke scent, but it's not overwhelming at all. Looking at the scent notes, it's probably the musk that gives it that cologney note. Actually, now that it's going strong in the room, that smoky note is more of a cigar or ashtray scent, which sounds bad, but there are so many other notes in this scent that blend into it to make it smell really good. As much as I like this scent, I'm not sure if I want my whole house to smell like this.
Throw: Very Good

Cranberry
"A tart, bright blend of fresh berries and lemon, sweetened with raw sugar and vanilla. Enjoy fresh blackberries, lemon, raspberry, cranberry wine, raw sugar crystals and vanilla. "
I do smell the tartness of the cranberry, but it's not an authentic cranberry scent. It's more like a cranberry punch, and I think there's some other kind of fruit in there. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect lemon, but I think I detect blackberries and maybe also the raspberries. And I see cranberry wine, which explains the hint of that sour fermentation note that I smell on cold sniff (but not enough to be annoying), but thankfully I don't smell when melting. When melted, I just smell cranberry punch.
Throw: Excellent

Confetti Cake
"This flavorsome fragrance opens with a fruity blend of red berry, orange, mandarin and peach leading to a sweet, silky mix of whipped butter, vanilla and sugar for the ultimate delight. "
I smell sugary lemon and maybe also an orange note and possibly a touch of red berry, but also a smidgeon of a vanilla cupcake note. Looking at the scent notes, I'm really surprised I don't see lemon. This is a yummy "Fruit Loops" type scent, and it smells a lot like Golden Peach Vanilla and also Tahitian Citrus.
Throw: Very Good

Pumpkin Caramel Swirl
"A warm and scrumptious creamy caramel treat with notes of sweet orange pumpkin, pumpkin puree, buttery vanilla and brown sugar. "
This is a yummy milky caramel with a rich buttery brown sugar note and what might be a smidgeon of coffee but is probably actually the pumpkin. On cold sniff I don't smell any cinnamon, but when melted I do, even though it's not in the scent notes. This is a very sweet caramel, not a salted caramel, although it does have a little bit of salt. It smells fantastic.
Throw: Very Good

Georgia Peach
"Enjoy juicy pink grapefruit, orange slices, mango, sweet coconut and woods."
This smells just like a juicy peach! It doesn't have that fake peach note that a lot of peach scents have, the kind that smells like cheap peach scented air freshener. This smells like the real fruit, but there's something else in there too that I can't figure out, that gives it a slight banana note. The closest peach scent I can compare this to is Mainstays Peach & Mango, as they both smell authentic. The Mainstays has that slight mango note that gives it a tropical vibe, and it's not as sweet, but it does smell more "natural". Whereas the Goose Creek is sweeter and "juicier", like peach nectar. OK, looking at the scent notes, I think the banana is really the mango and coconut, and now that I know coconut is in there, I do detect it. I don't smell orange though.
Throw:  Very Good

Living Colors Scented Wax Melts (from Big Lots) Review

Living Colors Scented Wax Melts (from Big Lots) Review

Living Colors Scented Wax Melts from Big Lots
Click photo to view larger image

This is a review of Living Colors scented wax melts from Big Lots. Living Colors wax melts are made by MVP Group International, same company that makes Mainstays (for Walmart), Colonial Candles, Burt's Bees, Paula Deen (discontinued), Everyday Escapes, Everyday Essentials, Interiors by Design, True Living (at Dollar General), K-Mart & Sears brands, and Febreze Home Collection.

Living Colors comes out with new scents every few months. But sometimes the scent names don't match the scent. Many Living Colors melts have very weak or zero throw. Some may do well in a very small bathroom, but many would not throw well anywhere.

Also, check out my review of new Summer 2016 scents at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2016/05/living-colors-scented-wax-melts-from-big-lots-summer-2016.html.

Waterfall Mist
This is a nice jasmine type floral scent with a soapy note. It's not overly sweet, and has a very slightly salty watery note. I wish this one had thrown well, as it had almost zero throw.

Garden Blooms
I really like this one but I can't figure out the notes. It's definitely floral and very sweet. It almost has a lilac vibe, but not quite, and maybe baby powder. It smells fake, but not in a bad way, more like a really floral shower gel with fresh notes. This had barely any throw, maybe a 1 or 1.5 out of 5.

Gardenia
Nice generic gardenia scent, but no throw.

Bamboo Sugarcane
It doesn't smell like bamboo or sugar. It's not sweet at all. It's very very savory, almost like a salad with perhaps a hint of lemon. It smelled a little like cat pee when melted, not good at all. I don't get that cat pee note on cold sniff though. Good throw.

Iced Lavender
This smells like a fake lavender, but smells very nice. Weak throw.

Sea Salt Scrub
This is a really strange scent. It doesn't smell like ocean or sea salt or a spa scrub type scent at all. It smells like burnt chocolate and dust combined. That description sounds awful, but it's so unusual that I can't not like it. Throw is very good.

Orange Blossom Tea
I definitely smell orange and tea, and the orange is more like an orange rind rather than a sparkly citrusy orange. The tea is not a chai tea, but more of an iced tea. There may be a little bit of ginger in the background. It's a very nice refreshing scent, and throw is very good.

Cucumber Mint
It smells like a spa mint, kind of like ScentSationals Zen. I don't smell cucumber. It's not very strong on cold sniff, and since I already have several Zen type scents, I didn't buy this one.

Eucalyptus
This is similar to Cucumber Mint but slightly more savory. Very weak on cold sniff, and weak throw.

Peach Cassis
I didn't buy this one because it smells like a fake peach car air freshener. I don't smell anything else, like cassis.

Citrus & Sage
This smells like orange with something in the background that gives it a slight spa quality. It's very similar to Orange Blossom Tea. Weak throw.

Coastal Breeze
Very nice fresh soapy body wash or herbal shampoo scent but very light on cold sniff. Slight ocean type saltiness. Weak throw.

Lilac Bloom
This smells like lilac room spray. It's nice, but not authentic. It's sweeter than Lilac & Lily and I like it just a bit more. Throw is good, but ScentSationals, Better Homes & Gardens, and Mainstays Lilac scents and throw are better.

Lilac & Lily
I definitey smell lilac, but I think there's a slightly different floral mixed in. It's a very "spring" like scent, and it's slightly more authentic than the Lilac Bloom scent. This had barely any throw, maybe a 1 or 1.5 out of 5.

Citrus Vanilla
I'm not sure why I bought this one, since it's straight vanilla with a little bit of coconut which makes it smell like a vanilla cupcake. I don't smell citrus at all. It's not overly sweet. I have tons of vanilla scents, and from experience I've found that Living Colors vanilla scents typically have no throw. And I was right. This had barely any throw, maybe a 1 or 1.5 out of 5.

Vanilla Cream
This is a more sweet buttercream vanilla scent than Citrus Vanilla. I like this one more. It's not super sweet, like buttercream frosting, but more like a sweet white spongey cake or an iced vanilla cookie. Zero throw.

Vanilla Amber
This is a nice vanilla buttercream type scent with a rich cashmere amber note, like a smokey vanilla. It's a very nice elegant scent, but throw was very weak.

Tahitian Vanilla
I no longer have this one so I don't remember the specific scent notes, but the throw was very weak.

Watermelon
Nice fake watermelon candy type scent. I'm not a fan of watermelon scents, so I didn't think I'd like this one. But it smells nice and summery. Throw is mediocre though, but would do well in a smaller room.

Sandalwood
This does not smell like sandalwood at all. It's straight cinnamon, maybe with a little bit of sugar. No wood notes at all. Weak throw.

Lemongrass Sage
This is a really fake lemon scent, like a lemon candy but not very lemony. I can't describe it, and although it's not an awful scent, I don't care for it, and I don't remember if I had ever bought it or not.

Maple Sugar Oak
I don't smell any wood in this. It smells like maple french toast or maple pancakes. It's not straight maple syrup, because I smell a slight bread note as well. Throw is very good.

Tangerine Burst
Super strong fake orange soda scent without the fizziness, or orange candy. Very strong and orangey, and it smells really good, although it's a little harsh. Maybe I'll mix it with a vanilla. Throw is excellent.

Lemon Bars
This smells like straight "true" lemon with a little bit of salt. It's not a kitchen lemon or a bakery lemon or a lemon alcoholic drink. It's probably one of the best lemon scents I've ever smelled, and throw is excellent.

Pineapple Coconut
Fake pineapple coconut tropical scent, like a tropical car freshener. It smells better melted though, and throw is very good.

Coconut Lime
This smells like straight coconut, although it's a fake coconut. I don't smell any lime or pineapple notes. I don't think I ever bought this one.

Mango & Saffron
Super sweet peach or persimmon nectar type scent. It's a nice scent, but it has a very slight cat pee note! Throw is very good.

Lotus Blossom
Some kind of floral, but very weak on cold sniff, and no throw.

Apple Cinnamon
Typical fake generic fall apple scent with a hint of cinnamon, like a cinnamon apple room spray. Weak throw.

Grapefruit Chamomile
Smells like real grapefruit, and throw is very good.

Cool Serenity
Very nice super sweet cotton laundry scent. Not a harsh laundry scent. Unfortunately, no throw at all.

Honeysuckle

Nice honeysuckle scent, but weak throw.

Tangerine Tigerlily
I no longer have this one so I don't remember the specific notes. I do recall that it smelled great on cold sniff, but had zero throw when melted.

Tranquil Waters
I no longer have this one so I don't remember the specific notes, but it had no throw.

Sweet Cherries
Very light on cold sniff. I can barely smell the cherries. I didn't buy this because I couldn't find the melts, only the candles.

Fresh Linen
Typical generic nice laundry scent. Only found candles, no melts.

Hazelnut
This smells like coffee with a lot of cream and hazelnut creamer mixed in. Weak throw. Only found candles, no melts.

Wilma Handmade Scented Wax Review - April 2016

Wilma Handmade Scented Wax Review

Wilma Handmade Scented Wax Melts
Click photo to view larger image

This is my second review of Wilma Handmade Scented Wax Cup Melt Minis. As before, I really like this wax. Quality of scents and throw are very good. These Wilma Handmade "Cup Melt Minis" are 0.8 oz. cups of scented wax priced at $1.10 each (as of this writing). I bought 43 scents this time.

My first review (33 scents) can be found at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2015/10/wilma-handmade-scented-wax-review.html

Throw is on a scale of 0 to 5:
0 = no throw at all, even from up close
1 = barely any throw, only from a few feet away
2 = light throw (can smell it in a small room)
3 = good throw (can smell it in a large room and maybe a little outside the room)
4 = excellent throw (can smell it even outside the room and maybe the entire floor)
5 = "scent monster" (can smell it throughout the entire house, and maybe even outside the house with windows open). Very few wax scents are 5's.

Glam Princess Type
"Vanilla orchid, pear, and honey with cedarwood, guava, and marshmallow. A Vera Wang duplication."
I have no idea what I'm smelling. It's a nice slightly perfumey scent with a mustiness. It reminds me of an old upscale department store. There may be a smidgeon of mint and vanilla, but I'm not sure. It's not very strong on cold sniff. Zero throw when melted.

Karma
"Fit for an earthy princess with mingling notes of patchouli, lemongrass, sweet orange, and lavender."
Second one with a musty, slightly moldy note. But I think it's part of the scent. It's light on cold sniff. I think I smell something like marshmallow or bubble gum or something really sweet. But this also has kind of a "hippie" vibe, like patchouli or some other hippie spice. I think I like it, but it's too light to tell on cold sniff. Looking at the scent notes, there's the patchouli. Zero throw when melted.

Pink Patchouli
"An unlikely - but perfectly perfect - blend of our Pink Sugar and Patchouli." (Pink Sugar is "A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam. An Aquolina duplication.")
This is a combination of Pink Sugar and Patchouli, and what a great combination! I smell mostly the Pink Sugar (a super sweet cotton candy type scent with a hint of raspberry), and just a hint of a hippie vibe. A little more patchouli would have been nice, but I like the Pink Sugar anyway, with or without the patchouli. Throw was very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Jelly Donut
"The perfect glazed donut with a sticky strawberry filling."
This smells just like a powdered donut filled with jelly. I can smell both the fruit and the sugared donut dough. Throw was mediocre, maybe a 2.5 out of 5.

Rustic Patchouli
"A strong, earthy patchouli with a more rustic note than our regular patchouli."
This is a true patchouli scent, which is a slightly sweet mildewy woodsy scent that almost has a slight cocoa note. It's a little similar to ScentSationals Patchouli Woods Fusion, although more "raw" and without clove notes. I really like this scent, but I think it's one that people might either love or hate. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Blood Orange Nectar
"A sweet nectar of blood orange, black currant, and sangria."
This is like a combination of orange and satsuma (a pungent sour type of orange). I like satsuma better on its own, but this is a nice strong scent. It's very similar to ScentSationals Molten Orange. It's a "scent monster", a 5 out of 5 as far as throw, and takes over the entire house.

Nag Champa
"A hand-rolled blend of champa flowers, spices and resins that create an aromatic incense."
I love the Nag Champa scent. It always smells to me like baby powder mixed with orange blossom/neroli and a little bit of patchouli. It's an "occult shop" type scent with a hippie vibe. This one is a standard Nag Champa scent. Throw is excellent, 4 out of 5.

Mandarin Lime
"Tangy mandarin and zesty lime accented with a touch of basil. This is a duplication of Jo Malone's Lime, Basil, Mandarin."
This doesn't smell like I expected it would. I do smell lime, but it's kind of a perfumey scent. It's unique and I like it. OK now looking at the scent notes, it's supposed to smell like perfume. Throw is okay, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Angel Type
"A duplication of Angel by Thierry Mugler. Vanilla, sandalwood, and patchouli."
This is supposed to smell like Angel perfume, a beautiful scent with a slightly vanilla and chocolate note. But although this shares some of the same notes, it doesn't smell like the perfume. It's light on cold sniff, so it's hard to pick out the notes. It smells nutty, with maybe a smidgeon of vanilla. It's not very sweet and doesn't have any perfumey notes. It's still a very nice scent though. Throw is good, around a 3 out of 5, although it seems lighter because the scent itself is light.

Iced Lemon Biscotti
"Sweet lemon notes with a creamy bakery background."
Yummy rich lemon cake scent, and not overly sweet. Throw is excellent, at least a 4 or 4.5 out of 5.

Cabana Cotton
"It's like having line dried laundry strung between two palm trees on a deserted island oasis. Clean cotton blends with tropical."
I expected this to be a tropical laundry scent, but it's actually a very nice musky jasmine floral perfume scent, similar to ScentSationals Vintage Lace. Throw is good, around a 3 out of 5.

Shangri-La
"A sweet coconut blend with delicate island delights."
This smells fantastic. I smell some kind of fruit first, maybe pear or a light tropical fruit. And maybe also vanilla or even marshmallow. And a sweet perfume note in the background. And perhaps a smidgeon of coconut? Melted, I smell more of the tropical notes. Very nice, and throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Lavender Milk
"Fresh lavender with coconut and vanilla."
On cold sniff this smells like straight lavender, not too sweet. But when melted I also smell a warm milk note in the background. If the lavender were a little sweeter it would be a great scent for a baby's room. After about an hour it started taking on a nice coconut note. Ah, now looking at the scent notes, there's the coconut. Throw is good, around 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Blueberry Lemon Verbena
"A fresh and fruity blend of sweet blueberries and lemon verbena."
This smells like sweet lime with blueberry. The verbena makes the lemon smell like lime and gives this scent a spa quality, but also a bit of an industrial soap quality, but not in a bad way. This scent is unique and I like it, but I can see it being one that people will either like or hate. Throw is excellent, around a 4 out of 5.

Blueberry Zinger
"Fresh blueberries, creamy coconut, and moist white cake."
This one smells really yummy. I smell blueberry first, and then maybe marshmallow and also a bit of brown sugar. It has a little bit of kick to it, so maybe there's a smidgeon of lemon as well. Okay now I see that it has a coconut note. I don't really smell that though, or it's very faint. When melted, I don't smell that slight lemon kick, and I also smell a slight rich bourbon note. I really like this scent! And throw is fantastic, a 4.5 or even 5 out of 5.

Jungle
"The jungle comes alive in this blend of hardy woods, and tropical fruits and florals."
On cold sniff it smells like a wood workshop where fresh wood is being cut. But there's also an authentic tree sap scent like the peppery sap of a pine tree. But it's not really a pine scent. There might also be a smidgeon of patchouli. This is a nice raw wood scent, and it's also peppery, without any sweetness or smokiness. It has a very slight milky note. Looking at the scent description, it doesn't really tell me much. I don't smell anything tropical or fruity at all, and the floral might be what I think is patchouli (a very faint sweetness that I smell on cold sniff but not really when melted). I really like this scent in nature, but I'm not sure it's something that makes sense inside a house. Throw is good, around a 3 out of 5.

Chocolate Orchid
"It is a lightly chocolate-y sweet floral scent that really does surprise with its delightfulness."
This is a popular scent among wax vendors. This is basically a combination of a floral and chocolate. The chocolate is not an overpowering cocoa type chocolate, but a mild sweet vanilla chocolate, which works with the floral. The combination of scents makes it smell like a cashmere/amber type scent. It's a really nice scent. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Aqua Di Gio Type
"A sweet masculine scent. A light, fresh, aquatic fragrance. An Armani duplication."
I don't know what this particular cologne smells like, so I can't say if it smells authentic or not. It's a nice fresh herbal men's body wash scent. There may be a smidgeon of lemon. Throw is not good, maybe a 1.5 out of 5.

Raspberry Patchouli
"Deep earthy and musk notes of patchouli blended with sweet ripe raspberries."
I love the smell of patchouli, but this one is quite weak on cold sniff. I think I smell it a little, along with a baby powder note and a very slight raspberry note. Melted, it smells like an earthy raspberry. It's a nice scent, but not as fantastic as I thought it would be. Throw is not great, around a 2 or 2.5 out of 5.

Rain Forest Spa
"Tangy grapefruit and other sweet citrusy notes blend with crisp bamboo."
Sweet green grass with a subtle jasmine type floral note and a fresh clean watery note. Looking at the scent notes, maybe there's a hint of grapefruit, but this is not a citrusy scent at all. The bamboo is that main green note. A nice fresh, pleasant fragrance. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Lavender Dreams
"Our sweet lavender"
This smells like lavender scented bubble bath with a floral note. It's a nice, relaxing scent, perfect for a bedroom or bathroom. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Cerulean Blue
"Tropical fabulosity! A mesmerizing fusion of tangy citrus, sweet berries, smooth coconut and creamy vanilla."
This is not what I expected based on the name. I expected a watery or oceany scent. This is an intense black cherry with coconut and a creamy background, and maybe a smidgeon of a tropical fruit. It's a very nice scent. When melted, the black cherry note is not as intense. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Pink Lavender Mallow
"Pink Sugar (Pink Sugar is "A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam. An Aquolina duplication.") blended with relaxing lavender and sticky sweet mallows."
Yes, it's just as fantastic as it sounds. First I smell super sweet buttery yummy marshmallow, then I smell Pink Sugar (a super sweet cotton candy type scent with a hint of raspberry and a smidgeon of a perfumey note), and then just a hint of lavender to add a calm note and temper some of the extreme sweetness. But make no mistake, this is a super sweet scent. I need to order more of this one! Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Pixie Dust
"A refreshing fragrance that blends pomegranate, berries, icy peppermint and creamy vanilla."
I can't figure out what I'm smelling, maybe a super sweet apple or melon with mint? There's also a bit of tartness. It's a nice scent but there's something a little "gaggy" about it. OK looking at the scent list, the tartness is coming from the pomegranate. Throw is good, around a 3 out of 5.

Patchouli Rose
"Our patchouli touched with silky red roses."
I really like this scent. It smells like an old-fashioned earthy rose, like something that might be burning in a house belonging to an old lady who used to be a hippie. I can smell both the patchouli and the rose. Unfortunately throw was almost non-existent, maybe a 1 out of 5, if that.

Lemon Rose Nibbles
"Sweet and tart lemon candies blend with cake bites and garnished with a silky rose."
This smells fantastic! It smells like a super creamy crème fraiche with that intense milky cream note and sour cream. But also vanilla and a creamy lemon are added to the crème fraiche, and just a hint of rose which sounds weird but really works. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5. And the scent lasted about 16 hours!

Candy Craze
"A rainbow of fruit flavors come together with cotton candy and marshmallow."
Another fantastic lemon scent. This smells similar to Lemon Rose Nibbles, but it's more of a super sweet lemon jelly or lemon buttercream scent with a marshmallow note. No rose notes, of course. And it doesn't have that sour cream/ crème fraiche note either. The lemon is more intense than Lemon Rose Nibbles. I think I also smell orange and maybe some a smidgeon of some type of red berry like strawberry. It's rich and maybe buttery, but not milky. I guess it's supposed to smell like a hard candy but I think it's more like a sweet jelly candy or buttercream.

Hawaiian Sweet Grass
"A lush tropical spa scent from the heart of the Hawaiian islands. A beautiful balance of succulent island fruits mingling with hibiscus and sweet grasses."
I'm not sure what I'm smelling, but it's nice. A little green, a little floral, a little fruity, and a little perfumey, but no individual notes really stand out. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Coconut Lime Verbena
"A tantalizing fusion of fresh coconut, lime and verbena soothed by vanilla. A duplication of the Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena scent."
On cold sniff I smell lime first, then coconut, and also a palm note (which is hard to describe, kind of a soapy savory waxy scent with a hint of lemon, in a good way). But melted, I smell the palm first, then the coconut, and really no lime at all. Looking at the scent list, I think I do smell the vanilla slightly on cold sniff, but not when melted. I really like this scent! Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Fabuloso
"Just like the lavender household cleaner. So good and so strong!"
This is an exact duplicate of the lavender scented cleaner "Fabuloso". I've always loved this scent. It's a super clean soapy lavender scent that makes the whole house smell fresh. Throw is fantastic, at least a 4 out of 5, might actually be a 5 out of 5 scent monster!

Pink Cookies
"Sweet and buttery aroma of freshly baked cookies blended with pink sugar."
This smells incredible, a perfect combination of Pink Sugar and warm vanilla cookies. Yummy! Throw is okay, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Under the Boardwalk
"Realistic notes of aged wood planks, fresh citrus, with nuances of sun and sand."
This one is weak on cold sniff. I think I smell chocolate chip cookies. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell any of that. Throw is very weak, maybe only 2 out of 5. But it's definitely chocolate chip cookies. I think I got the wrong wax.

Hello Blueberry
"Sugared lemon shortbread topped with fresh blueberries."
This is a super fake blueberry scent (but not in a bad way) with some kind of super sweet but tart syrupy note in the background. OK looking at the scent notes, that tartness is lemon. But when melted, I don't smell the lemon. Actually this smells like blueberry scented brandy, that sweet almost alcoholic note. I like it. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Figberry
"So sweet and fruity with figs and berries and just a hint of spice."
This smells like raspberry (and maybe strawberry too) with a fig note in the background. Fig scents don't really smell fruity, but more of an expensive department store type scent. This is a nice combination with the raspberry. I don't smell any spices. When melted, however, I don't smell the fig, but it smells more like a raspberry candy with a soapy note. It's a nice scent. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Iced Orange Dipity
"Serendipity blended with iced orange bakery goodness." (Serendipity is "A sweet blend of cherries and vanilla with a touch of coconut.")
This smells scrumptious. It smells like vanilla poundcake with almonds and orange jelly filling. There's also a rich buttery brown sugar note when melting. I'm surprised I don't see almonds in the scent notes, but it's probably the coconut I smell. Throw is excellent, around a 4 out of 5. I love this one!

Lemon Dipity
"Sweet lemon goodness with creamy serendipity (Serendipity is a sweet blend of cherries and vanilla with a touch of coconut.)"
On cold sniff, this smells like almond, coconut and vanilla, with a hint of cherry and lemon. When melted, I don't really smell the lemon. Throw was good, around 3 out of 5, but the scent fizzled in under an hour.

Lime Dipity Crumble
"A dash of the perfect lime, a splash of serendipity, covered in fresh baked crumbles for good measure."
This smells almost exactly like Lemon Dipity, although there's a smidgeon more of that sweet tart lime note. I don't smell any additional bakery notes from the "crumble". If I have both scents side by side though, I can barely tell the difference. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Banana Bubble Gum
"Ripe banana blended with juicy bubble gum."
Somewhat authentic banana when melted, but smells more fake on cold sniff, and after melting for a few hours it did start to smell a little fake and "annoying". Throw is excellent, around a 4 out of 5.

Pink Lemons
"Pink sugar blended with our ultimate lemon"
The main note is a nice tart lemon, which is mixed with Pink Sugar. Throw is good, around a 3 out of 5.

Sugared Lime
"Sugary sweet lime."
This smells like a sweet lemon/lime scented body lotion with a slightly floral or perfumey note. It's more of a "body wash" scent than a foodie scent. I expected the scent notes to say that it's a dupe of some popular perfume. Melted, it's a nice clean scent. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Fruit Loops
"All the fruity goodness with just a touch of sugary vanilla drizzled icing."
This really smells like Fruit Loops cereal, with the fake orange, lemon and strawberry notes, and I swear I even smell the cereal. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Lemon Squares
"Tart lemon, sweet sugar, vanilla, butter, coconut, and pie crust. One of my favorite treats."
A nice tart lemon with bakery notes. I wouldn't notice the coconut if I didn't know it were there, but now that I do, I think I detect just a hint of coconut. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Key Lime
"Can a scent be sweet, zesty, and tart all at the same time? This one is."
I do smell lime, but this one is weak on cold sniff. Melted, it has a vinyl-like chemical note that makes it smell like an industrial cleaner, but not in a good way. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

AmbiEscents Scented Wax Melts Review - Spring 2016

AmbiEscents Scented Wax Melts Review - Spring 2016

AmbiEscents Scented Wax Melts - Spring 2016
Click photo to view larger image


This is a review of 6 new AmbiEscents scented wax melts from April 2016 at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Green Aloe
This is an authentic aloe scent, but I'm not sure why you'd want your home to smell like aloe. It smells like a bitter cucumber. Cucumber scents are fresh and watery, with a hint of floral. This Green Aloe scent is fresh and watery, but no sweetness at all, and it has a slight earthy bitter note. I'm not crazy about this scent, but the throw is excellent. It might smell better mixed with something else, like lemon, floral, or a fresh air/watery scent.

Strawberry Macaroon
This smells like strawberry milk with a vanilla bakery note and a barely detectable smidgeon of almond. It's a very nice scent, and not overly sweet. It's almost exactly the same scent as ScentSationals Pink Velvet which came out a few months ago, but there are subtle differences, and I believe the main difference is that the fruit in Strawberry Macaroon is strawberry, and the fruit in Pink Velvet is raspberry. The fruit notes in both scents are in the background rather than the forefront. Pink Velvet has a very slight tartness that I don't smell in Strawberry Macaroon, and Strawberry Macaroon is slightly sweeter with more milkiness and less almond. Throw is very good.

Citrus Pineapple
This just smells like straight pineapple, although it's not a heavy annoying pineapple. It's light and fresh, but I don't smell any other notes, nothing citrusy or fresh air or additional tropical fruits. Like most pineapple scents, the throw is excellent.

Into the Woods
This smells like a raw "pencil shavings" type of wood with a sweet, warm, perfumey scent in the background. And although there may be just a hint of creamy vanilla (which might actually be sandalwood), it's not a ScentSationals Vanilla Woods dupe at all. Unfortunately throw is very weak, but would probably do well in a very small room or bathroom.

Beach Front
This is a fantastic and pleasant scent. It smells like coconut vanilla perfume, if such a thing existed. The first note I smell is coconut, but it's not a tropical coconut, and there's no pineapple or other fruits in it. Then I smell a slightly floral perfumey note with a barely detectable warm cashmere/amber note. Then there's a creamy yummy vanilla in the background. It smells incredible. It's similar to ScentSationals Passion Fruit Coconut which came out around February 2016. They both have a creamy coconut note, but Passion Fruit Coconut is not as sweet and creamy, and the perfume note is way in the background, and it has a very slight tropical note. Although I like both scents, I like the AmbiEscents Beach Front much more. Like Passion Fruit Coconut, unfortunately the throw on Beach Front is on the weak side, but it's such a nice scent that I almost don't care. It would do best in a smaller room.

Cherry Blossom
This is a typical cherry blossom scent, and it's very nice. It's a light floral with just a hint of cherry. It's very weak on cold sniff, so I knew the throw would not be good, as is the case with pretty much every Cherry Blossom scent I've tried, no matter what brand. And the throw was terrible. I could barely smell it. It might do okay in a very small bathroom.

Orange Blossom
Notes: An intoxicating fruity blend of sun ripened orange, juicy kiwi and fresh squeezed lime wrapped in fresh cilantro. Top: Fresh Squeezed Lime, Crushed Garden Cilantro - Middle: Sun Ripened Orange, Pureed Red Fruits, Juicy Kiwi - Bottom: White Musk, Sheer Woods
Cold Sniff: A very light floral maybe with a hint of fruit; I expected it to smell like neroli (which I love), but it doesn't.
Melted: Totally different from cold sniff, and better. Smells like sweet candied fruit. Maybe apricot? Has a warmth like amber or wood, which seems to increase after an hour or so. Very nice scent. Looking at the scent notes, there's the fruit and the woods. And musk, that must be what I think is a floral.
Throw: Excellent


Cranberry Cosmo
Notes: Cheers to the cocktail-inspired fragrance of tart cranberry with a touch of citrus. Top : Lemon Zest, Sweet Orange - Middle : Cranberry, Raspberry - Bottom : Creamy Milk
Cold Sniff: Cranberry punch with a slight orange note. But it also has a rich yummy berry note and a slight cough drop note (in a good way).
Melted: Same. Looking at the notes, yes I do smell a smidgeon of lemon. And there's the orange. And raspberry, that's the rich yummy berry.
Throw: Excellent


Citrus Woods
Notes: Luminous citrus notes are highlighted by a bouquet of sun-kissed florals and warm cedarwood. Top : Brazilian Bergamot, Mandarin Zest, Blackcurrant Berries - Middle : Jasmine Petals, Golden Freesia, Sun-Kissed Water Lily - Bottom : Warm Cedarwood, Amber Crystals, Benzoin
Cold Sniff: Smells like floral scented toilet paper or shampoo, but in a good way; I don't smell citrus or woods.
Melted: I do detect a little bit of the citrus and woods when melted, as well as the floral. It's a nice scent.
Throw: Very Weak


Autumn Bliss
Notes: Bright notes of bergamot, mandarin peel and blackberries shine on top. Sweet notes of vanilla, cyclamen leaves and acai berries mingle throughout. Amber crystal lies beneath this blend. Top: Blackberries, Italian Bergamot, Mandarin - Middle: Cyclamen leaves, Vanilla, Acai Berries - Bottom: Warm Amber, Sandalwood, Sheer Musk
Cold Sniff: I'm not sure what I'm smelling. I think I smell dark fruit like plum, and maybe apples and also wood, but there's also a sour chemical note I don't like.
Melted: Tart cranberry with wood maybe, but there's also a fake candy type note. It smells much better melted than on cold sniff, and I don't smell that sour note. Looking at the scent notes, okay blackberries, that makes sense. After a few hours it took on more tart, sour notes that made it smell a little like tropical fruit.
Throw: Excellent


Mango Salsa
Notes: Savor the wedges of succulent mango fruit, sugared guava, and sun blushed papaya. Top: Tropical Citrus, Mango - Middle: Papaya - Bottom: Mango, Coconut
Cold Sniff: Smells just like authentic salsa, with the sweet mango notes and the sour savory salsa notes (which I guess is supposed to be the pepper, onion, or cilantro in the salsa). Looking at the scent notes though, I don't see anything that would give it that sour savory scent. This smells more like salsa than mango or papaya, and I don't smell coconut or citrus at all. Although it's an authentic scent, I don't think it's a scent I want wafting through my house. My roommate said it smells like cat pee and I can kind of see that.
Melted: Same as cold sniff.
Throw: Excellent


Guava & Papaya
Notes: An invigorating tropical scent of guava nectar, papaya, and grapefruit. Top: Sweet Clementine, Violet - Middle: Mango, Papaya, Dewy Guava - Bottom: Gingerroot, Coriander, Amber, Cassia
Cold Sniff: Very light, and I can barely smell anything. Maybe a sweet candy-like apricot? Too light to tell. I should have known since it's part of the old Rio de Janeiro line which was weak.
Melted: Sweet fruit candy with an apricot note.
Throw: Very light


Caipirinha
Notes: Sip on Brazil's most popular cocktail with notes of sugar cane rum, honey, and lime. Top: Tangy Lemon, Bergamot - Middle: Cardamom, Currant, Orange Blossom - Bottom: Vanilla Bourbon, Musk
Cold Sniff: Also part of the Rio de Janeiro line and it's also quite weak; I can only smell a smidgeon of lime.
Melted: Throw is better than I thought it would be judging from the weak scent on cold sniff. It smells like some kind of lime industrial cleaner with a citronella note. It doesn't smell like a lime beverage at all. And after a few hours it turned into a sour lime scent. Not awful, but not great. I think mixing it with something sweet like vanilla would help.
Throw: Good


Fresh Aloe
Notes: A fresh fusion of Polynesian palm leaves, rainforest bamboo, and sparkling citrus. Top: Soft Bergamot, Lemon Slice - Middle: Neroli Blossom, Water Lily, Marine Accord - Bottom: Fijian Palm Leaf, Polynesian Hibiscus, Sea Grass
Cold Sniff: Authentic green scent that smells a lot like cucumbers.
Melted: It just smells like raw cucumbers. Too bland, would probably smell better mixed with something savory, lemon, floral, laundry, or a fresh air or water scent.
Throw: Good


Cedar Mint
Notes: Rejuvenate with notes of eucalyptus leaf and garden herbs flowing over blue jasmine, amber crystals, and soothing sandalwood. Top : Eucalyptus Leaf, Mediterranean Bergamot, Garden Mint - Middle : Geranium, Blue Jasmine, Dew-Kissed Hyacinth - Bottom : Crystalized Amber, White Sandalwood, Sheer Musk
Fresh laundry type scent with a hint of mint, very similar to ScentSationals Zen.
Throw: Fair


Sweet Iced Tea
Notes: Nothing refreshes on a warm sunny day like a tall glass of iced black tea with a touch of sparkling citrus, sweetened with honey. Top: Sparkling Grapefruit, Lemon Zest - Medium: Peach Nectar, Crushed Rose Petals - Bottom: Honey Drizzle, Black Tea Leaves
THE most authentic iced tea scent I think I've ever smelled in a wax. If I close my eyes, I really think I'm smelling slightly sweetened iced tea with just a smidgeon of lemon. This one lasted all day!
Throw: Excellent


Coconut Rain
Notes: A creamy coconut blended with sweet pineapple, citrus, and vanilla. Top : Creamy Coconut, Pineapple - Middle : Dewy Greens, Citrus - Bottom : Musk, Sweet Vanilla
This was a sample car scent, which I assume smells the same as their wax melts. I expected this to be a fresh watery scent with coconut. But instead, it's a bold pineapple mixed with coconut. It's definitely a tropical drink type scent and not a fresh watery scent at all. I don't smell dewy greens, citrus, musk, or vanilla. I don't like pineapple scents, but if you do, you'll probably love this one.


Morning Dew
Notes: A refreshing blend of sparkling white peach, dew-kissed petals, and blonde woods accented by clean ivory musk. Top : Sliced Strawberry, White Peach, Citrus Cocktail, Honeycrisp Apple - Middle : Morning Dew, Blooming Jasmine, Sheer Muguet - Bottom : Madagascar Vanilla, Patchouli, Blonde Woods, Ivory Musk
This is another sample car scent. This one smells almost exactly like Angel perfume, an expensive perfume with a warm ambery note and some "foody" notes in the background. I don't smell any of the notes shown though, no peach, strawberry, citrus, or apple. Maybe patchouli, floral, and vanilla.
