This is a review of Aldi's Scented Wax Melts that came out April/May 2017. Aldi comes out with 4 different wax scents 3 times a year: January/February (spring scents), April/May (summer scents), and September (fall scents). They cost $1.69 each (regular price), which is even cheaper than the $2 wax at Walmart. They are manufactured by Hanna's Candles, the company that makes Ashland melts for Michael's. In general the Aldi wax is very good quality, although I was not impressed with the April/May 2017 scents.

Floral Trio:

Magnolia & Moss - A soapy floral with a green note. Melted, it smells a bit like old soap with a slightly bitter note. I didn't care for the scent, and the throw was not great, 2.5 out of 5.

River Willow - A fresh watery scent with a soapy note and smidgeon of salt water. Melted, it smells like soap, a nice bathroom type scent. Throw was fair, around a 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Savannah Breeze - A sweet watery soapy floral with a green note. It's my favorite scent of the three, and throw was very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Melon Trio:

Cantaloupe Melon - A pleasant honeydew melon scent with a creamy note, and it's not overly sweet. Not like melon candy, but maybe a creamy melon drink. Throw is very good, around a 3.5 out of 5.

Cucumber Melon - Fresh cucumber with a subtle melon note. But throw was maybe a 1 or 1.5 out of 5, so might not even do well in a tiny room.

Sweet Melon & Papaya - This one is very weak on cold sniff. I get a sweet tropical fruit scent (the papaya) with a smidgeon of melon. Throw was fair, 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Pink Flower Trio:

Cherry Blossom - This smells more like orange blossom. I smell a creamy orange with a hint of floral. Throw was barely a 1 out of 5.

Pink Azalea - This smells like a rich sweet creamy strawberry and vanilla. It's so rich, there's almost a caramel note in the background. I don't detect a floral note, but if it's there it's very subtle. Fantastic scent, and throw was excellent, around a 3.5 or maybe 4 out of 5, and the scent lasted all day.

Lotus Flower - This one also smells like creamy strawberry, but it's more fruity than Pink Azalea, and not as rich. I don't smell any floral notes. Another fantastic scent with excellent throw (4 out of 5), and the scent lasted all day.

Vanilla Trio: This is the same vanilla trio as the Ashland brand from Michael's, which I reviewed at All of the vanilla scents in this trio smell pretty much the same, with only some very minor differences.

Vanilla Bean - A nice very sweet vanilla scent with a subtle cookie note. Throw is very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5, but started dissipating within an hour.

Vanilla Cream - Sweet rich almost marshmallowy vanilla buttercream. Throw was not great, maybe 2.5 out of 5.

Creamy Vanilla with Coconut - Sweet vanilla with just a smidgeon of coconut. Throw was not good, around 2 or possibly 2.5 out of 5.
