This is a review of 6 new AmbiEscents scented wax melts from April 2016 at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Green Aloe
This is an authentic aloe scent, but I'm not sure why you'd want your home to smell like aloe. It smells like a bitter cucumber. Cucumber scents are fresh and watery, with a hint of floral. This Green Aloe scent is fresh and watery, but no sweetness at all, and it has a slight earthy bitter note. I'm not crazy about this scent, but the throw is excellent. It might smell better mixed with something else, like lemon, floral, or a fresh air/watery scent.

Strawberry Macaroon
This smells like strawberry milk with a vanilla bakery note and a barely detectable smidgeon of almond. It's a very nice scent, and not overly sweet. It's almost exactly the same scent as ScentSationals Pink Velvet which came out a few months ago, but there are subtle differences, and I believe the main difference is that the fruit in Strawberry Macaroon is strawberry, and the fruit in Pink Velvet is raspberry. The fruit notes in both scents are in the background rather than the forefront. Pink Velvet has a very slight tartness that I don't smell in Strawberry Macaroon, and Strawberry Macaroon is slightly sweeter with more milkiness and less almond. Throw is very good.

Citrus Pineapple
This just smells like straight pineapple, although it's not a heavy annoying pineapple. It's light and fresh, but I don't smell any other notes, nothing citrusy or fresh air or additional tropical fruits. Like most pineapple scents, the throw is excellent.

Into the Woods
This smells like a raw "pencil shavings" type of wood with a sweet, warm, perfumey scent in the background. And although there may be just a hint of creamy vanilla (which might actually be sandalwood), it's not a ScentSationals Vanilla Woods dupe at all. Unfortunately throw is very weak, but would probably do well in a very small room or bathroom.

Beach Front
This is a fantastic and pleasant scent. It smells like coconut vanilla perfume, if such a thing existed. The first note I smell is coconut, but it's not a tropical coconut, and there's no pineapple or other fruits in it. Then I smell a slightly floral perfumey note with a barely detectable warm cashmere/amber note. Then there's a creamy yummy vanilla in the background. It smells incredible. It's similar to ScentSationals Passion Fruit Coconut which came out around February 2016. They both have a creamy coconut note, but Passion Fruit Coconut is not as sweet and creamy, and the perfume note is way in the background, and it has a very slight tropical note. Although I like both scents, I like the AmbiEscents Beach Front much more. Like Passion Fruit Coconut, unfortunately the throw on Beach Front is on the weak side, but it's such a nice scent that I almost don't care. It would do best in a smaller room.

Cherry Blossom
This is a typical cherry blossom scent, and it's very nice. It's a light floral with just a hint of cherry. It's very weak on cold sniff, so I knew the throw would not be good, as is the case with pretty much every Cherry Blossom scent I've tried, no matter what brand. And the throw was terrible. I could barely smell it. It might do okay in a very small bathroom.
