I did a review of most of the DD scented wax melts in December 2015. Since then, they hadn't come out with any new scents until Spring 2017, when I did find a couple of new ones. They sold out very quickly though, so I will have to go back after they restock.

The wax in the older melts was a different consistency than the new ones, even the same scents. The older wax was harder and had some bubbles in it. The new wax is still hard, but the surface is smooth and even, without any bubbles, and it has a greasy surface similar to Scentsy wax.

Coastal Vanilla
Notes: vanilla orchid, coastal breeze and white musk
This is definitely a tropical scent. I smell mango I think, or maybe it's pineapple, with a slightly tart lemony, orange or satsuma note. It's a great scent, but I'm surprised I don't see any tropical fruit in the notes. When I reviewed this scent on 12/13/15 it had weak throw, only 2 out of 5, but throw was better this time with the slightly softer Scentsy like wax, around a 3 out of 5.

Coconut Milk & Patchouli
Notes: sweet coconut, sandalwood and exotic patchouli
I reviewed this scent on 12/13/15. This smells like cashmere or amber, with a slight milky coconut note. But the cashmere may just be the combination of the coconut and the patchouli. This is a fantastic and classy scent. It's not a true coconut scent, and not tropical at all. Throw was very good, around a 3.5 out of 5, same as the older wax.

Candied Pecans
Notes: crushed pecan, vanilla & brown sugar
A nutty brown sugar cinnamony scent. Very nice, although I'm so over fall scents and this is pretty much a typical fall bakery scent. Throw was excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5. When I reviewed this scent on 12/13/15 (older wax), throw was very good, 3.5 out of 5.

Papaya & Pineapple
Notes: juicy papaya & island pineapple
I'm not a fan of pineapple scents, but the sweet pineapple mixed with the slightly sour papaya smells fantastic. It almost has a slightly lemony note. Throw was excellent, 4 out of 5. When I reviewed this on 12/13/15 (older wax), throw was only good, 3 out of 5.

Sage Teakwood
Notes: warm sage & aged wood
This is a brand new scent. It smells like sweet cedar wood with a warm perfumey or cologney note and a smidgeon of a natural "green" note. It's very nice. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Sweet Jasmine
Notes: crisp white jasmine
This is a brand new scent. It was weak on cold sniff. It smells like jasmine perfume with a little gardenia. Throw was not good, around a 2.5 out of 5, but would do well in a small room.
