Watch video below:
 

Hanna's at Home Trios – Cool Winds / Cotton Seed and Freesia / Fresh Cotton
Cool Winds – A nice fresh fabric softener scent. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.
Cotton Seed and Freesia – Coconut with a laundry note and smidgeon of floral. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.
Fresh Cotton – This smells more like a fresh salty ocean scent than laundry. It's an okay scent, but I like the other two better. Throw is good, around a 3 out of 5.


Hanna's at Home Trios – Chocolate Infatuation – Vanilla Truffle / Milk Chocolate / Chocolate Biscotti
Vanilla Truffle – A rich sweet marshmallowy vanilla buttercream. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5. Unfortunately the scent started dissipating within 2 hours.
Milk Chocolate – This really does smell like milk chocolate, a light milky chocolate scent like a milk chocolate candy bar. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.
Chocolate Biscotti – This smells like rich hot chocolate, but I don't smell any bakery notes. Throw is only fair, around a 2.5 out of 5.


Hanna's at Home Trios – Candy Crush – Nilla Vanilla / Berry Licious / Cherry Crush
Nilla Vanilla – On cold sniff it smells like vanilla buttercream with a cherry note, but it also has a weird plasticy chemical note. When melted though, it just smells like vanilla buttercream, no cherry (the cherry note was probably absorbed from the cherry scent in the package) or chemical notes. However, I could barely smell it, even up close, and throw was maybe a 1 or possibly 1.5 out of 5.

Berry Licious – A nice sweet cherry vanilla scent. It's a "happy" scent! Throw is fair to good, around a 2.5 or possibly 3 out of 5, but unfortunately scent started dissipating within an hour or two.

Cherry Crush – This smells like rich cherry flavored cough syrup cherry. It's not an authentic cherry scent, smells quite artificial but I like it. Throw is excellent, 3.5 or maybe 4 out of 5.  After about an hour, it started getting a bit annoying with more of a chemical note; I think mixing it with a bit of a vanilla would help.


Hanna's at Home Trios – Peppermint / Mint Leaves / Candy Cane
Peppermint – A slightly sweet peppermint scent. All 3 scents in this trio smell almost exactly the same. Throw is not very good, around a 2 or maybe a 2.5 out of 5.

Mint Leaves – On cold sniff this one is a bit weak. I smell mint with a slightly woodsy note. But when melted I don't smell the woodsy note, but I do smell a little bit of a sweet vanilla and a smidgeon of cookie. Throw is fair, around a 2.5 out of 5.

Candy Cane – A sweet vanilla mint scent. This one is a little sweeter than the other two scents. Throw is fair, around a 2.5 out of 5.


Hanna's at Home PureFresh Bathroom Neutralizing Mountain Air
Notes: A crisp fresh blend of ozone, herbs, florals and musk
On cold sniff this smells like a nice smelling bar of soap. Melted, it's definitely a laundry scent, but a nice soapy laundry scent, not a harsh detergent scent but also not a flowery fabric softener scent. Throw is excellent, around 3.5 out of 5.

Hanna's at Home PureFresh Pet Neutralizing Sunshine Fresh
Notes: The harmonious fusion of florals, green apples, ozone, and musk
This is exactly the same scent as ScentSationals Paws-itively Tropical, which is actually an apple scent with another note that I can't put my finger on, but it's very nice. Looking at the scent notes, that other note I can't figure out is "ozone", which gives it a fresh almost oceany vibe. And the Paws-itively Tropical scent is also a Pure Air Odor Eliminating Technology scent. Hanna's Candles and ScentSationals are two different companies, but it looks like some of their scents may be coming from the same place. Hanna's PureFresh Kitchen Neutralizing Sparkling Herbs scent (which I reviewed HERE) is the same scent as ScentSationals Sparkling Herbs. Throw is excellent, 4 out of 5.

TimberWick Lavender Sachet
Notes: Lavender, wild thyme, sage, warm musk, and earthy woods
A lovely soapy lavender scent. This is not a harsh medicinal lavender. It's more on the sweet side, but not overly sweet, and has a very slight warm ambery note (from the musk). It's a perfect lavender scent, and great for a bedroom or baby's room. Throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

TimberWick Pine Meadow
Notes: Crushed pine needles with fresh cedar and blue spruce bark
This is more of a spruce scent than a pine scent. Pine scents can be a little biting and sometimes smell artificial, but spruce scents are more crisp and subtle. Blue spruce specifically is fantastic, a fresh, crisp woodsy balsam scent, which is mostly what I smell here. It's not a biting pine scent, and I don't smell cedar. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.
