I bought three 1803 Candles soy melts from a local gift shop for $5.99 each. They cost $5.50 on their website ( These prices are very expensive, so I was hoping they'd be worth the cost. I only bought 3 scents because of the cost, and the fact that I didn't care for most of the scents on cold sniff. Pure soy wax tends to have an offputting note in the background, a little mildewy or sour. The consistency of these melts is awful, as is the case with most pure soy wax melts. The wax is messy and crumbly, like bleu cheese. If you've ever tried Burt's Bees wax melts from Target or Walmart, it's pretty much like that, difficult to work with and quite messy trying to get a cube out of the package.

Blueberry Pickin'

Notes: Perfectly baked, fresh-from-the-oven blueberry pie fills the kitchen with a mouth-watering aroma. The flaky, sugared crust that grandma hand blended is the perfect complement to the blueberries, fresh cream, brown sugar, and vanilla.

Review: I smell blueberry with a smidgeon of cinnamon I think. This is not an authentic blueberry scent, but it's also not that harsh fake blueberry scent either. It's very nice.

Throw: First I melted it in a standard 20W Glade warmer and throw was poor, like a 1.5 out of 5. Then, because I know that soy wax tends to prefer lower heat, I put another cube in the new 13W Glade warmer. Throw improved only slightly, maybe a 2 or 2.5 out of 5, but that's only because I had both warmers going at the same time! I didn't notice a better output from the 13W warmer.

Family Everything

Notes: Smooth vanilla and nutty cardamom blended with a small amount of musk.

Review: This smells like a rich vanilla buttercream with maybe a hint of chocolate and nuts and possibly a smidgeon of cinnamon. It smells yummy and decadent! Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell the fennel/anise notes of cardamom, but cardamom does have a nutty note. I also don't smell musk.

Throw: Poor, about a 1.5 or possibly 2 out of 5, but might do well in a tiny bathroom.

Seaside Memories

Notes: Lime and sweet coconuts

Review: I smell a very sweet lime mixed with rich vanilla and a smidgeon of coconut. The coconut note is not strong at all. This smells like a rich, creamy lime flavored vanilla buttercream frosting, and I smell a berry note in there even though it's not in a the scent notes. Great scent!

Throw: Very good, around a 3 or 3.5 out of 5
