I've reviewed other Chesapeake Bay Scented Wax Melts, in October 2015 ( and March 2016 ( Most of these are $3.29, but the newer scents are $3.99. For me, the quality does not justify the price, as this brand has never thrown very well for me.

Hinoki Bonsai
This smells like a light raw wood with a sweet peppermint note. It's a spa type scent, a little similar to ScentSationals Zen. Throw is not good, around a 2 or 2.5 out of 5.

Mountain View
This has a light raw wood note too, but there's also some kind of mossy or swampy note in the background, but not in a bad way. It's a nice natural scent. Throw is fair, around a 2.5 or maybe 3 out of 5.

This smells like Liquid Smoke combined with a little bit of a sweet tobacco note. It smells fantastic, and very strong on cold sniff. Throw was very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

This is a fresh herbal type scent. It also has that slight mossy note like Mountain View, but much less so. There's also a very slight men's cologne note. This scent just has a smidgeon of sweetness. Throw was very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Island Orchid
This is a fresh floral scent with a slightly bitter background. It's not overly sweet, and smells a bit like body wash. Throw was fair to good, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Morning Roast
If there were an award for the most incorrectly named scent, this one would win. With the name "Morning Roast" and a picture of coffee beans on the label, one would expect that this were a coffee scent. But there is not a smidgeon of coffee in this scent. It smells like a nice soapy subtle men's cologne or body wash. When I first smelled it at the store, I smelled a couple of them to make sure the one I picked up wasn't a fluke. And the lids are permanently attached to the clamshell, so it's not like anyone could have switched lids. There had to have been a mix-up at the factory! Throw wasn't great, around a 2.5 out of 3.
