Scentsy Wax Bars Review from a User, NOT a Seller (Part 2) - 57 Scents

Scentsy Wax Bars Reviews from a User, NOT a Seller (Part 2) - 57 Scents

 
This is my second Scentsy review. Please see my first Scentsy review, and my thoughts about Scentsy in general, HERE.

If you're looking for a review of a particular scent, use the "Search Blog" feature on the top right hand side of this page (on a desktop; not sure if it appears on mobile version).

Jammy Time

Help kids drift into dreamland with this soothing blend of baby freesia, lavender and sweet pea. Perfect for bedrooms and evening baths.

This one is primarily lavender, but there's something else in the background, maybe nutty or woody. It's not a perfumey lavender, nor a medicinal lavender, and it has a warm note. Looking at the scent notes, I guess the nuttiness is part of the lavender itself. I don't smell floral though. This is a very nice lavender scent, completely different from their French Lavender scent though, which is just a straight lavender and slightly medicinal. I like the other notes in this one, plus the throw is much better.

Throw: Excellent, at least a 4 out of 5

Sea, Sun & Fun

Drops of pure amber highlighted with juicy orange. Day lilies add a straight up summer floral note, petals swirling at the water’s edge.

This smells like a combination of Coppertone suntan oil and a fresh scent like fresh air with a salty sea water note. It smells just like the beach. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell orange, and I smell maybe a smidgeon of floral.

Throw: Not great, around a 2.5 out of 5

Summer Holiday

Steal away to a sunny isle bursting with lush plumeria, tiger lily and sweet orange softened by vanilla and radiant amber.

I'm not sure what I'm smelling, but it smells like a really sweet girly perfume with something yummy like vanilla and a touch of warmth from amber perhaps (but it doesn't smell like "Pink Sugar", not that type of sweet girly perfume). Looking at the scent notes, okay that's about right. When melted, the vanilla really comes out. This one lasted all day, and it was really strong, actually a bit too strong considering how sweet and perfumey it is.

Throw: Excellent, 5 out of 5

Sedona Sunset

Flamboyant desert lily and vanilla orchid enliven creamy coconut milk and ethereal jasmine.

This smells a lot like Summer Holiday, but not quite as sweet, and a little warmer. There may be just a smidgeon of coconut in this one. And looking at the scent notes, there it is. This is a really nice scent, a more grown-up version of Summer Holiday. Melted, it smells sweeter and even more similar to Summer Holiday, but not quite as "sickeningly" sweet, and not as strong which in this case is actually a good thing.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Pacific Daydream

Zesty slivers of lime peel perk up sunny pineapple spears and sweet spun sugar, punctuated with the essence of mellow Hawaiian sea salt.

This is a fresh air type scent with a peppery note and a hint of fruit, maybe pineapple. I don't really like it that much though. And throw was not good, which is surprising for Scentsy. Looking at the scent notes, there's the pineapple, although I don't smell as much tropical fruitiness as the notes suggest.

Throw: Not good, around a 2 out of 5

Mountain Sky

Take a meadow stroll amidst fresh air redolent with a dash of citrus, while white woods and amber lend warm, exquisite undertones.

A fresh scent with a little bit of floral and just a smidgeon of smoky wood. Very nice scent, almost like a masculine body wash. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell citrus.

Throw: Not good, around a 2 out of 5, if that

Flirtatious

Tart green apple cheerfully bounces among fizzy slices of pink grapefruit and sweet white amber.

This one is very light on cold sniff, so I'm not sure why I bought it. It's sweet, a little bit floral, maybe a hint of apple and a slight peppery note like Pacific Daydream. Looking at the scent notes, there's the apple. When melted it smells a little bit like apple blossom, but I'm not sure if I like this scent or not because the grapefruit gives it a slightly peppery pineapple note. Either way, it's too light to even tell.

Throw: Poor, around a 1.5 or barely 2 out of 5

Stay Awhile

Atlantic seaberry, water hyacinth, red cassis and fresh, exquisite teakwood.

This smells like sweet pear nectar mixed with a perfumey scent with a warmth which might be amber, and a slight fresh air note. Looking at the scent notes, I don't know what any of those scents smell like by themselves. I guess the pear I'm smelling is seaberry or cassis. I don't smell a woodsy note. This is a nice, happy scent!

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 out of 5

RasPberry Bush

Luscious black plum and jewel like raspberries. Add a tingle of icy peppermint to this delicious duo.

I don't smell a lot of raspberry in this one. It's more like a "grown up" raspberry scent. I smell mostly a warm amber note, with a little bit of rich succulent berry in the background, more like plum than raspberries. This smells a little bit like Luna, but not as sweet. I think there's also a fresh note in there, but barely noticeable. When melted, it's a very rich scent. Looking at the scent notes, there's the plum, and the fresh note is probably the peppermint, although I don't smell any mint at all.

Throw: Fair, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5

Brazilian Grapes

A lemony based fragrance that is not sticky like a candy but layered and nuanced, with earthy aromas of citrus and weathered wood lightened by a hint of sugar.

This one is similar to Raspberry Bush in that it's more of a warm amber Luna type scent than grape. In fact, I really don't smell grape at all, maybe more like a plum, and even that's barely noticeable. I think there's also a hint of woodsiness. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell lemon or any kind of citrus.

Throw: Not good, around a 2 out of 5, if that

Perfectly Pomegranate

Top notes of sweet, sugared berries add an extra layer of femininity to the tart base of pomegranate. Prepare for the debut of your new vivacious siren persona.

This smells like strawberry with a rich milky vanilla note like maybe whipped cream. It's not overly sweet. Looking at the scent notes, on cold sniff I don't smell any tartness. This is supposed to be a wild sexy scent, but I don't see that at all. If anything, this is more of a comfy relaxing summer scent.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Black Raspberry Vanilla

Delicious, sun-sweetened dark berries warmed with vanilla.

This is yet another warm ambery slightly fruity scent. After awhile they all start to smell similar. This is not a "foody" type scent, but more of a "homey" scent. I do smell raspberry or blackberry, but also a warm ambery note and a little bit of vanilla, but not a rich vanilla whipped cream note like Perfectly Pomegranate. There may also be a hint of wood and a barely detectable smidgeon of citrus. Looking at the scent notes, this scent smells more complex than just dark berries and vanilla. Melted, it takes on a richer blackberry and vanilla scent that smells better than it does on cold sniff.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3.5 out of 5

Berry Bubble Blue

A delicious blast of blue raspberry, tart green apple and spun sugar.

This is such a fantastic scent. It's like a combination of marshmallow, vanilla buttercream frosting, and cotton candy. It smells a lot like pink sugar scent, but richer and with vanilla. There's just a hint of berry (raspberry I think), which creates the cotton candy note. Looking at the scent notes, I'm surprised I don't see vanilla. And I don't smell apple.

Throw: Excellent, at least 4 out of 5

Sunkissed Citrus

Lively blend of oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit.

This smells like powdered orange Tang, or like an orange flavored children's vitamin. It's a fake orange scent. There may also be a hint of grapefruit in the background and possibly a barely detectable smidgeon of lime. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on, although I expected some other notes that give it the "fake" quality. When melted, I also smelled a strong mint or eucalyptus note, the kind that clears your sinuses. But nothing like that is shown in the scent notes. I'm not a fan of this scent.

Throw: Not good, 2 or 2.5 out of 5

Cactus Flower Lime

Crisp, meditative blend of lime mist, water lotus, green tea and delicate aloe leaf.

I love this scent. It smells like the old Better Homes & Gardens Zesty Lemon Peppercorn, or Ashland Cilantro Lime from Michael's, or ScentSationals Bamboo Fusion. In fact, smelling this scent and Zesty Lemon Peppercorn side by side, they're pretty much the same scent, although Cactus Flower Lime is just slightly more savory and rich. This is a rich savory tangy lemony peppery salad herbs type scent.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5

Clementine Clove

Spicy and warming clove, juicy and tangy-sweet clementine and a whisper of sharp piney resin.

I wasn't sure what to make of this when I first smelled it, because it smells a little like orange clove pomander "Pomander" is an orange or apple studded with cloves to perfume the air, usually around the holidays. I'm not a fan of orange pomander, but this one has a lot of other notes in it. I smell mostly black pepper and a soapy note, and then the cloves and then maybe a smidgeon of orange. There's also a nutty or woody note in there, or maybe a barely noticeable smidgeon of pine. It's a very complex, savory scent. Looking at the scent notes, I guess the pepper is the "sharp piney resin". Melted, it smells the same as cold sniff, but more "rich". I don't care for this scent.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5

Just Breathe

Cool eucalyptus, which gives the aroma an invigorating green base. Subtle notes of zesty lemon are chilled by the frosty essence of many mint varieties.

This is a spa type lemony mint. It's not sweet, and it's not like ScentSationals Zen, due to the lemon note. There may be a hint of eucalyptus which prevents the mint from being a toothpaste type spearmint, but it's not peppermint either.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3.5 out of 5

Sugared Cherry

Ripe cherry is blended with rich and rounded Concord grape, balanced with seeds of pomegranate, tart and sweet. The fruit salad is covered with vanilla sugar and features slices of candied apple, mellow and crunchy with its shiny, sticky carnival coating.

This smells like a maraschino cherry that goes on top of a sundae, with a note of real black cherry in the background, and maybe a smidgeon of sweet vanilla. Looking at the scent notes, this scent doesn't smell nearly that complex. Grape? Now that I know it's in there, I think I can smell it. Candied apple? Maybe.

Throw: Not good, 2 or 2.5 out of 5

Coconut Lemongrass

The cool creaminess of sweet coconut milk, with the sunny zest of lemongrass.

This is another spa scent, a little similar to Just Breathe except without the mint and with the added coconut note. It's a savory lemon (lemongrass) scent with creamy, slightly sweet coconut.

Throw: Excellent, at least a 4 out of 5

Luscious Lemon

Light, creamy lemon

This smells like kitchen lemon (lemon dish detergent type scent) mixed with sweet creamy vanilla. There may also be a hint of floral in the background. It's a nice clean, fresh lemon scent but it's also yummy. I think this one is discontinued. Melted, this is definitely a soapy kitchen lemon scent and I don't really smell the "yumminess", and it has a bit of a waxy note when melted. I still like it, but I have other kitchen lemon scents by other brands that smell better.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Guava Honey

Tropical guava with a scattering of fruity, deeply jewel toned berries and a spritz of fresh and zesty citrus. The warmth of flowing honey is enriched with jammy berries and the rosy brightness of guava, invigorated with juicy and tart wedges of sunny yellow lemons.

I smell mostly honey with a slight note of sweet fruit. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell citrus or lemons at all.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5

Cherished

Passion flower and gentle pink jasmine pack a romantic punch that is accented with the honeyed and tart tension of ruby red goji berry and peachy pink guava.

I smell apple first, but there's something a little tart in the background, maybe grapefruit? And also maybe amber for sweet warmth. It's very nice, sweet and girly, but not like pink sugar, more like maybe a high quality shampoo with maybe a very slight tropical note. Looking at the scent notes, I guess it's the goji berry or guava that I think is apple.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 of 4 out of 5

Cozy FireSIDE

A complex profile of spices sparked by the gentle heat of ginger and cinnamon.

I smell cloves, just cloves. Maybe a smidgeon of smoke. Now that I see the scent notes, I can't believe cloves are not in there. I don't smell cinnamon or ginger, although if I try really hard maybe I can detect them.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of5

Pomelo Fiesta

Three sunny citrus aromas, tangy tangerine, punchy pomelo, and sweet orange, meld with smooth vanilla, biting cayenne, and spicy ginger.

This smells a lot like lemon verbena (a spa type herbal lemony scent), which is not my favorite scent. But there are other notes in this one that give it a clean, more soapy vibe, maybe ginger? And there's a touch of sweetness. Looking at the scent notes, I see that tangerine and orange are predominant, but I don't smell orange. Pomelo is a citrus fruit that tastes like grapefruit, so maybe what I'm smelling is a combination of that grapefruit note and the orange, with the other notes. And there's the ginger. Cayenne? I don't think I smell pepper in this one. This is an interesting scent, but I'm not really a fan of it.

Throw: Good, around a 3 or maybe 3.5 out of 5

Eskimo Kiss

The cool aroma of blackberry jam, caramelized brown sugar, and a sensual blend of vanilla and amber.

Very sweet perfumey fruity scent, almost like a pink sugar or cotton candy type scent, but with more fruit and more perfume. There may also be vanilla in this one, and a sweet warmth like amber. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of5

Blessings

Classic holiday fragrances of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg are elevated to the sublime, with amber and sandalwood adding an element of elegance and refinement.

This smells like cedar and eucalyptus with maybe a smidgeon of cloves. It's not sweet at all, and it's not a Christmas tree scent. Looking at the scent notes, I don't know how eucalyptus or pine or mint are not in there, as I can smell the sinus clearing effects of the menthol. I'm not sure how accurate these scent note descriptions are! I don't smell cinnamon or nutmeg, and I guess sandalwood is the cedar I think I'm smelling. It's a nice raw masculine woodsy type scent, but I wouldn't consider it a holiday fragrance.

Throw: Fair, around a 2.5 or maybe 3 out of 5

Winter Cypress

A fresh and crisp blend of mint leaves, frosted lavender and chilled raspberry is a new way to do a festive fragrance.

This smells like a woodsy piney men's cologne with a soapy note. There may be a hint of eucalyptus, but the sweetness of the cologne note tempers that. It's a very nice, warm scent. Looking at the scent notes, I was way off! I still smell a woodsy pine note. And now that I see lavender is in this, that may be what's contributing to the cologne note. Mint is probably the eucalyptus. And I don't smell raspberry at all.

Throw: Good, around a 3 out of 5

Satin Sheets

Ravishing notes of exotic sandalwood and exotic vanillas collected from the furthest corners of the globe

The first thing I smell is milk, and then a sweetness which may be a mixture of vanilla and floral, but it's light. And way in the background there's a slight dirt smell, like potting soil. But it doesn't smell bad at all, just not a note that belongs with the other notes, or in a scent called "Satin Sheets". Looking at the scent notes, the sandalwood is probably the milk note I detect, since sandalwood tends to have a "milky" note to it. And the dirt note might actually be the wood scent of the sandalwood. Or it could be mold on the wax since there's a bit of condensation on the surface, although I don't see any mold or weird colors in the wax. I guess I'll find out when it melts.

Throw: Fair to Good, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5

Thunderstorm

Very refreshing, sharp, spicy, outdoor fragrance; like the breeze in a storm.

This smells like soap, but it's fresh and watery and slightly floral. It has a little bit of a laundry note, and there's also a smidgeon of spiciness but not food spice, more like maybe a frankincense type spice. But it's not a men's cologne type scent. And there's also a hint of a Coppertone suntan oil type scent, but barely noticeable. It's a complex scent that could go into several different scent categories. This one has no actual scent notes listed.

Throw: Excellent, 4 out of 5

Sea Salt Mist

Softened with salty beads of pure water and brightened with mandarin orange, the fragrance is rounded out with earthy sea grass and smooth amber.

Fresh sweet watery men's body wash type scent with a fresh, slightly soapy note and maybe a smidgeon of floral. It's very nice, although similar to a lot of men's body wash type scents. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell orange at all, but maybe a barely detectable smidgeon of lemon, which I guess is actually the orange. I do smell the amber, which adds a nice warmth.

Throw: Fair to Good, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5

Dark Harbor

Complex combinations of green herbs and bold flower notes, with bright top notes of mint and kaffir lime and a smooth underpinning of golden amber. Classic herbal notes combine with citrus and amber for many levels of complexity. Ocean lavender pairs salty minerals and intense lavender, floral and green. Frosty mint is peppery and cool, topped with kaffir lime, and combining lemon and orange with the lime.

Nice but typical men's cologne type scent. This smells more like cologne than Sea Salt Mist, and doesn't have that slightly floral and citrus note. This one has a very slight woodsy note, like maybe a sandalwood or driftwood, and it's not overly sweet. Looking at the scent notes, wow there are a lot of notes in this one. I do smell the amber, as that provides a nice rich warmth to many cologne and perfume type scents. Mint? Not really, although possibly way in the distance. I don't smell lime or any kind of citrus.

Throw: Poor, around a 1.5 or 2 out of 5

Awakening

Blissful blend of renewing pineapple, glowing peach, and the soothing base duo of amber and vanilla.

Fantastic lemony scent with some other notes I can't detect, maybe baby powder? It's sweet and a little salty, and more of a kitchen type lemon than a bakery lemon. OK looking at the scent notes, I'm surprised there's no lemon or even orange. I don't smell pineapple or peach, as I'm not a fan of either of those scents. The amber is probably what I think is the baby powder, as it adds a nice sweet warmth. When it's melting, there's a weird note that makes it smell like second hand cigarette smoke (even though this is not a smoky scent), but in a good way, like someone smoking outside in the summer and you can barely detect the rich smoky notes but it's kind of familiar and comforting.

Throw: Excellent, 4 out of 5

Pear Blossom & Cucumber

Delicate florals hover above a pool of cool lemon scented cucumber water, with honeydew melon adding a light and fruity finish.

I almost didn't even consider this one because I don't like cucumber scents. But I don't smell cucumber in this one, or maybe it's so light I just can't detect it. I'm not sure if I even really smell pear either. It's a fresh watery scent with more of a tropical fruit note and maybe a touch of floral. Looking at the scent notes, okay it's cucumber "water", not actual cucumber, which I guess is what's providing the fresh watery note. Maybe the tropical fruit is actually the combination of lemon and honeydew melon. To me it's a nice fresh watery tropical fruit scent.

Throw: Very Good, 3.5 out of 5

Pink Tulips

Sweet night-blooming jasmine is enlivened by juicy apple and raspberries

This smells like fruit, maybe apple, melon, cherry or peach, or some mixture of a couple of these, almost like a fruit candy scent. There's also a slight floral note in the background, but this is primarily a fruity scent. Looking at the scent notes, okay apple and raspberry, I get that. Melted, it has a pink sugar or cotton candy type vibe.

Throw: Not Good, around a 2 out of 5

Shimmer

Sweet cherries are added to tangy velvety apricots. This fruity mix is grounded by a seductive hit of white musk, and frosted with a sweet dusting of spun sugar.

This still smells like apples to me, but pretty girly apples, like apple scented perfume or body lotion. I smell perfume or baby powder or floral in the background, but also a sweet sugariness. Looking at the scent notes, okay no apple, so I guess it's the cherry and apricots I smell. And the baby powder note is probably the musk.

Throw: Not Good, around a 2 or 2.5 out of 5

Snowberry

A rich medley of ripe loganberries and strawberries creates a rich and juicy base, which is given a fresh-from-the-oven feeling by a crumbly crust and dash of soothing cinnamon. A frost of cool peppermint lends a chilly element to the scent.

This is one of the most fantastic scents I've ever smelled. I love this one! I smell dark berry, like maybe black raspberry, mixed with a rich vanilla with maybe a hint of caramel and a little bit of cinnamon, and possibly amber for sweet warmth. There's also pine or eucalyptus in the background, but it's not overwhelming and does not detract from the berry scent. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on, although this isn't a true bakery scent even though it does have bakery elements. This one is a "scent monster" and the throw is excellent, taking over the entire house. I believe I've found my #1 favorite Scentsy scent!

Throw: Scent Monster, 5 out of 5

Ode to Opulence

Sweet black currant intertwines with golden apricot and deeply fragrant blood orange, this intricate fruity profile enriched with creamy, tropical coconut milk and finished with rare spiced vanilla.

A super rich succulent fruity scent of grape or blackberry or apricot, with perhaps some amber for warmth and maybe a sandalwood note and perhaps a smidgeon of coconut, and some other notes I can't identify. Looking at the scent notes, black currant makes sense. Currant is a fruit that has a slightly woodsy note. There's the apricot and coconut. I don't smell orange though. This is a dark, complex scent. I love it! Melted, I'm not sure if I really love it. It has a bit of a metallic note.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Honeymoon Hideaway

Sensual notes of exotic island lilies, sweet kiwi, and coconut palm.

I'm noticing a trend with Scentsy scents. A lot of them are very similar, with that sweet warm ambery note. This one has a fresh watery note with that sweet warm ambery background, like a high quality unisex body wash. I can't pick out any particular notes other than maybe a floral and perhaps a smidgeon of coconut. Looking at the scent notes, I guess I do smell a hint of fruit in the background. But this is not a tropical scent at all.

Throw: Poor, 1 out of 5. I could barely smell it even from a foot away.

Skinny Dippin'

Fresh green apples perfectly harmonized with refreshing melons and juicy pears.

I smell coconut and I think honeydew melon, but there may be something else in there that I can't figure out. Looking at the scent notes, apples and pears, I don't really smell those although the melon (honeydew or cantaloupe, but not watermelon) is the primary scent. I still think I smell some coconut even though it's not listed. It's a nice scent if you like melon scents, but I'm not a fan of them.

Throw: Very Good, 3.5 out of 5

Amber Road

Opulent golden amber acts as a lustrous base for teeming red cedarwood and mystical resins.

This smells like cedar wood sweetened with warm amber. It's similar to ScentSationals Vanilla Woods or Better Homes & Gardens Pure White Woods, but with slightly more amber and a tinge of a cologne note like frankincense. Fantastic scent.

Throw: Scent Monster, 5 out of 5

Quiver

Subtly spicy eastern sandalwood with a final essence of heady tuberose.

Yet another soapy perfumey scent with a warm amber note and a hint of floral. This one has a smidgeon of perfume spice like maybe frankincense, and a very subtle woodsy note, although it's more of a feminine scent.

Throw: Not Good, around a 2, maybe a 2.5, out of 5

Peppermint Dreams

Light and fluffy sugared cupcake batter with drizzles of honey as the middle note, and a top note of cool peppermint.

This smells like the inside of a peppermint patty, sweet creamy vanilla with a strong, icy peppermint. Yummy! Melted, I think I smell a little bit of chocolate, even though that's not in the scent notes.

Throw: Very Good, 3.5 out of 5

Rosewood & Freesia

Lush florals, white rose and baby freesia, blend beautifully with the more earthy base notes of rosewood and fir needles.

I didn't know that "rosewood" actually smells like a combination of rose and wood, but that's what this scent smells like. I smell an old-fashioned rose first, with a wood note in the background that I believe is pine, and I think the freesia gives it a soapy note. It's a very nice, comforting scent. Melted, the fir scent really comes out. Who knew that the combination of rose and fir/pine smelled so fantastic? This is one of new favorite scents!

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Coconut Flower

Lush floral notes are lifted by sunny pineapple, a little tangy and a lot sweet, and a smooth and creamy base of succulent coconut milk.

Just like the scent name, this smells like a floral with a coconut note. Actually, it smells like nice coconut scented laundry dryer sheets. Looking at the scent notes, I don't think I smell pineapple.

Throw: Very Good, 3 or 3.5 out of 5

Very Snowy Spruce

Fresh cut pine, cedar and balsam.

A nice intense spruce scent with maybe a hint of eucalyptus. Spruce is a richer, "saltier" scent than pine, and pine can sometimes have a fake "Pine-Sol" or even cat pee note. So I prefer spruce scents. Looking at the scent notes, it's probably the pine that I think is the eucalyptus, and the balsam that smells like spruce.

Throw: Scent monster, 5 out of 5

Winter Pine

Freshly cut fir tree needles mixed with white cedar along with hints of musk and fresh citrus

This is a nice smoky spruce scent with maybe a hint of eucalyptus and possibly a smidgeon of orange. It has a real Christmas tree smell rather than a fake pine scented air freshener. Looking at the scent notes, I think it's the citrus that makes this smell so fantastic (the combination of pine/spruce and orange is amazing), and there's just a smidgeon of sweetness which is the musk.

Comparing this scent to Very Snowy Spruce above, Very Snowy Spruce has a saltiness that makes it really rich, while Winter Pine has the citrus note with a hint of sweetness. <

Throw: Good, around a 3 out of 5


Lush Gardenia

Gardenia blooms, and a subtle hint of deep tuberose.

Super sweet gardenia perfume scent, and very strong on cold sniff. I really like this one! Looking at the scent notes, I think it's the tuberose that I really like in this scent, as it gives it a richer floral note.

Throw: Scent monster, 5 out of 5

Frosted Ginger Cookie

A blend of brown sugar cookie batter, warm ginger spice, rich molasses, a touch of cinnamon, and pure, sweet vanilla frosting.

I definitely smell the ginger in this one, and there's a sweet bakery note in the background. It's more gingery than a ginger snap though. Nice and strong!

Throw: This one is a scent monster, 5 out of 5

Mochadoodle

A deep, dark brew of exotic roasted coffee beans is blended with pure cocoa. Heaps of sugar and heavy cream are added. Finally, drizzles of decadent caramel and dark chocolate syrup.

This smells like a vanilla cookie with mocha (chocolate and coffee) swirls and a rich milky creaminess. It's a yummy scent, but very similar to a lot of mocha scented wax.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5

Perk Me Up

The full-bodied aroma of exotic, Guatemalan coffee beans is made luxuriously rich by indulgent hazelnut.

This smells like a real cup of coffee with a lot of cream, or even half-n-half. There's only a smidgeon of sweetness, but it's not a bitter coffee scent. Looking at the scent notes, I don't think I smell hazelnut.

Throw: Not Good, around a 2, maybe a 2.5, out of 5

Everything Nice

Get your fill of delicious butter caramel, savory roasted pumpkin and crunchy sugared and toasted pecans.

This smells like rich buttery vanilla mixed with maybe brown sugar and a hint of baking spices like cinnamon, and perhaps a smidgeon of coconut. It's a yummy rich scent that's typical of many fall bakery scents. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on, although I don't really smell pecans but I think they're way in the background.

Throw: Fair, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5

Heartbreaker

A sensual base of deep, blended woods is made daring by an element of organic tobacco leaf. The top note of green juniper gives the scent an extra dash of excitement.

Very nice rich, slightly smoky men's cologne with a smidgeon of spruce I think. This is definitely a cologne scent and not a body wash scent, and there's no soapy note. Looking at the scent notes, juniper is the note that gives this a very slight spruce scent. I can smell the hint of tobacco too. I really like this scent. But when melted, it's just another men's cologne scent, and I don't smell the background notes of juniper and tobacco.

Throw: Fair, around a 2.5 or maybe 3 out of 5

Sno-leil

A festive punch of citrus fruits, nashi pear and icy sparkling water, topped off with a rich and creamy dollop of marshmallow mousse.

This smells like lemon verbena but there's something pungent and a little sour in the background, like satsuma, which I love, but there's other notes in this that I don't care for. It's not very strong on cold sniff. Looking at the scent notes, I think I smell the citrus, but no pear or marshmallow; in fact, it's not sweet at all. Melted, it definitely has a sour slightly chemical note that I don't like.

Throw: Very Good, around a 3.5 out of 5

Dulce de Leche

You'll enjoy the ravishing aroma of rich cream and sugar as it simmers on the stovetop, slowly turning into a thick and creamy custard of caramelized goodness.

Super sweet rich milky creamy brown sugar caramel butterscotch scent. You'll need a visit to the dentist after melting this one!

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Mellow Moment

Its tranquil aroma is made up of notes of herbal chamomile tea, softly floral orange blossom, and a burst of energizing apple.

This is a floral with a very slight soapy note, but I can't figure out the notes. It's a "happy" scent, like maybe sunflower with just a hint of lemon, but there's also a slightly green or herbal note. Looking at the scent notes, the herbal note is the chamomile tea, orange blossom is the floral (although it doesn't smell like a true orange blossom/neroli scent), and the apple might be the slightly lemony fruity note. I think I smell the chamomile note first, then the floral.

Throw: Excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Simply Patchouli

Indulge in the rich, spicy aroma of exotic patchouli flower.

Warm sweet rich woodsy earthiness of true patchouli. I love this scent!

Throw: Fair, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5

Serene Green

Verdant notes of lime leaf, lemony verbena flower, and crisp, lively citrus fruits

Throw: Poor, 1 out of 5, if that
