Tuscany Candle wax melts can be found at various stores, including JoAnn Fabric, Christmas Tree Shops, Wegman's, Meijer's, and some gift and card shops.

Autumn Slumber
This is a smoky scent but I can't figure out the other note. It's not a woodsy scent, and it's not sweet at all. Maybe balsam? But it's not a pine scent either. The other note is a little sour but not in a bad way. Maybe some kind of savory spice like sage or rosemary, I just don't know. It's a nice scent, not my favorite but I think a lot of people will like this one. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Chai Latte
This does not smell like chai or tea of any kind. It's most likely an older scent re-used with a new name. But it smells great. It's caramel with a hint of pecan and a barely noticeable touch of cinnamon. It's not overly rich or overly sweet, and not a salty caramel. Unfortunately, throw was poor, 2 out of 5.

Cinnamon Cider Donut
I can't believe their quality control team didn't pick up on the misspelling of "Cinnamon" on the front label (they spelled it "Cinnmon" without the "a"). As far as the scent, it's a nice apple cider scent with a sweet bready cinnamon donut note. Throw was very good, 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Fall Festival
This smells like straight sweet cinnamon, like cinnamon candy, with maybe a hint of pumpkin spice. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Harvest Pumpkin
A nice sweet rich pumpkin pie scent with cinnamon and maybe a hint of caramel. Throw was very good, 3 or 3.5 out of 5.

Harvest Vineyard
I think this is the same scent as Cobblestone Candles Live, Love, Laugh from Kirkland's. It smells like grape juice made with concord grapes (a richer more succulent grape scent). It's not a wine scent at all, and thankfully it doesn't have that wine fermentation note that makes wine scented wax melts smell sour. Melted, it had kind of a fake grape note. And throw was fair, 2.5 or 3 out of 5.

Honeycrisp Apple
A fresh sweet apple scent with a little bit of cinnamon. It's a nice scent, although a typical fall apple scent. Throw was only good, 3 out of 5, which is a bit disappointing because apple scents in general usually have excellent throw.

Sunday Pancakes
This is the same scent as the Food Network "Sunday Morning Pancakes" scent that came out a few years ago (Food Network melts are discontinued). Kirklands store also has a Sunday Pancakes candle (no melts) under the Cobbletone Candle brand. Why the same scent among these three brands? Because Tuscany Candle, Food Network, and Cobblestone Candle candles and melts (as well as Sonoma brand at Kohls, and Hallmark brands) are all manufactured by the same company, Empire Brands Co. (formerly Langley Empire Candle) (

On cold sniff, this scent smells like moldy pancakes. But when it's melted, that odd moldy note dissipates, and you're left with an unbelievably authentic pancake scent! It smells like dry pancakes without any toppings, although there's just a hint of butter and maple syrup, but not enough to be a rich sweet bakery scent. It's a fantastic scent. Throw was excellent, 3.5 or 4 out of 5.

Vanilla Birch
I smell balsam (a subtle woodsy pine note) with a mossy note that smells a little like garden mint, but it's not really mint. There's also a very slight smoky note. It's a fantastic, cozy scent. It's not a sweet scent at all, and I don't smell vanilla. It's similar to Better Homes & Gardens Winter's Sleigh Ride from November 2016. Throw was fair, 2.5 or 3 out of 5.
