ScentSationals has a line of wax melts called "Fusion", which are supposed to be "mixable fragrances". They don't seem any different to me than their regular scents, since all wax melt scents can be mixed. These new Spring 2017 Fusion scents are only available in certain stores across the country, such as Meijer's. They're not on the ScentSationals website, but I'm hoping they will be added in a few weeks when ScentSationals updates their website and allows online ordering again.

Clarity (Sage Leaf & Clove)
This smells a lot like the new ScentSationals Apple Wood scent (which I reviewed at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2017/02/scentsationals-spring-2017-scented-wax-melts-review.html). But it's not the same scent. They both have a tobacco note with a slightly foodie quality. But Apple Wood has a smidgeon of apple and men's cologne (and is very slightly sweet), while Clarity does not. Clarity has a slightly more herbal note. It's like tobacco with a smidgeon of sage. I don't smell clove though. It's a very "different" scent, and I'm not sure if I like it. Melted, it smells a little bit like barbecued meat, but not really in a bad way. Throw was excellent, 4 out of 5.

Dream Big (Lavender & Thyme)
This is an authentic lavender scent, like the lavender plant itself. It's not very sweet, and it's a little medicinal but not too much so, more like an herbal lavender. When melted it's a very nice fresh almost soapy lavender scent that doesn't need any sweetness. Throw was very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Happy Day (Lemon)
This is almost the exact same scent as ScentSationals Happy Home, with a very subtle difference. I reviewed ScentSationals Happy Home at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2017/02/scentsationals-spring-2017-scented-wax-melts-review.html.  This scent is slightly more lemony with slightly less of a bakery note. I still detect a warm vanilla cookie note, but it's not as pronounced, and I don't detect the sweet rich buttercream. The lemon in this scent has a very slight kitchen lemon note. But really, if you compare ScentSationals Happy Home and this Happy Day Fusion side by side, you might not be able to tell the difference. Throw was excellent, 4 out of 5.

Healing Spells (Eucalyptus & Herbs)
This is the same scent as the new AmbiEscents Eucalyptus & Herbs scent, which I reviewed at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2017/03/ambiescents-scented-wax-melts-bed-bath-beyond-spring-2017.html. But while the AmbiEscents didn't have a good throw (around 2 out of 5), Healing Spells' throw was fairly good, around a 2.5 or maybe 3 out of 5. Of course, a lot of factors can affect throw, such as temperature variations in the room, etc. So I would say throw is between a 2 and 2.5 out of 5.

Invigorate Me (Lemongrass & Peppermint)
This is the same scent as the new AmbiEscents Lemongrass & Peppermint scent, which I LOVE, and I reviewed it at http://www.scentedwaxreviews.com/2017/03/ambiescents-scented-wax-melts-bed-bath-beyond-spring-2017.html. While the AmbiEscents version was a scent monster that took over the house, 5 out of 5 throw, Invigorate Me was not a "scent monster", but throw was still excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5. Again, throw could have been affected by other variables, but I would still say the throw on this scent is excellent.

Sweet Dreams (Sweet Jasmine)
This name for this scent is a total misnomer. There is no jasmine or even floral in this scent, and it's not sweet at all. I can't even figure out what it smells like, maybe a bitter soapy scent? Melted, it definitely smells like soap, like an intense natural soap, not citronella but that type of intensity, and throw was very good, around a 3 out of 5. I just can't really figure out what I'm smelling, but it's definitely not floral. I don't care for it.

Soul Searching (Rosemary & Mint)
I did not buy this scent because I couldn't find it.
