Green Apple & Kale smells quite weak on cold sniff. My experience with Sonoma wax is that their spring and summer scents have poor throw if they're weak on cold sniff. I do smell the apple and something a little herbal and green in the background that tempers the sweetness of the apple. So rather than being a rich, sweet or caramely apple, it's a fresh springy slightly sour apple like maybe a Granny Smith baking apple. Actually it has a little of a cantaloupe note. There's also a smidgeon of something that smells a little like cologne, so maybe it's the green note of the kale that gives it a fresh note. I did not buy this one, so I can't comment on the throw.

Lemongrass & Herbs was only available in the candle, and was very weak on cold sniff. It's herbal and salty with a smidgeon of lemon. A nice scent if it were stronger. I did not buy this one, so I can't comment on the throw.

Peach & Apricot has that typical fake peach scent that smells like a fake peach scented car freshener. I did not buy this one, so I can't comment on the throw.

Strawberry Basil is also only available in the candle. This is the only one of the 4 new scents that was quite strong on cold sniff. And it's the only scent for which I will buy the melt. It's a very nice sweet strawberry scent with an ice creamy note. There's also a smidgeon of something a little savory and maybe salty in the background, just enough to add some richness to the strawberry. I did buy a small candle and scooped out the wax to melt it, and the throw was excellent, 4 out of 5.
