This is a review of Living Colors scented wax melts from Big Lots (new Spring 2017 scents Part 2 - I reviewed 7 other Spring 2017 scents in February:

Living Colors wax melts are made by MVP Group International, the same company that makes Mainstays (for Walmart), Colonial Candles, Burt's Bees, and K-Mart & Sears wax. These melts often have very weak throw, but I was pleasantly surprised with the scents below, because most of them threw quite well and smelled great!

Bamboo & Willow
A fantastic scent, like a hothouse gardenia, rich and intense, but not overly sweet. Also smells like an old-fashioned perfume. There's a faint "green" note in there also that keeps it from being too sweet. Throw was excellent, 3.5 to 4 out of 5.

English Wallflower
Fantastic scent that smells like sweet tropical fruit or maybe a very sweet apricot, mixed with a light floral note. Very nice, and not too fruity or too flowery. When melted, I smelled more of the fruit, but within an hour it started to put off a little bit of a cat pee note. Throw was good, around a 3 out of 5.

Floral Rain
A bright artificial watery scent that smells like a bathroom air freshener. This is the one I thought I was going to like the least because of that artificial note, but I actually like it a lot. Throw was very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Hydrangea Blooms
This smells a lot like the Bamboo & Willow scent, a nice gardenia scent, but this one doesn't have the intense hothouse note that Bamboo & Willow has. This smells a bit like White Shoulders perfume, but it's not overly sweet. Melted, however, it smells like an authentic lily-of-the-valley flower. Very nice, and throw is excellent, around a 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Stone Garden
A nice jasmine or gardenia scent, and not overly sweet. There's another note way in the background, maybe a fresh air or watery note, or perhaps a smidgeon of laundry, that tempers some of the sweetness. Actually, it smells a bit like suntan lotion! Very nice scent, but throw was only fair to good, maybe 2.5 or 3 out of 5, but would do well in a smaller room.

Water Lily
This is a fresh watery scent with a little floral. It also smells like body wash or shampoo. A great scent for the bathroom. Throw was very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Wild Poppies
Fantastic scent, like a fresh fruity floral herbal shampoo. Throw was fair to good, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5.
