Yankee American Home Scented Wax Cubes from Walmart - Fall 2016 Scent Review

Yankee American Home Scented Wax Cubes from Walmart - Fall 2016 First Look

This is a "first look" at Walmart's Yankee American Home Scented Wax Cubes for Fall 2016. These are just my scent descriptions, as I did not buy these so I cannot comment on the throw. I did full reviews on other Yankee American Home scents this past Spring and last winter ( I did not buy these because at $3.93 they're expensive (compared to $2 for ScentSationals and Better Homes & Gardens wax melts at Walmart). Even though the packages are larger, you're getting the same amount of wax (look at the weight), so you're just paying for more packaging. For the most part, I'm not crazy about the Yankee American Home melts because for most of the scents, the throw isn't as good as other Walmart wax brands, and the scents aren't fantastic enough to justify paying double the price.

Yankee American Home Peaceful Beach
Peaceful Beach
Kind of weak on cold sniff. A standard salty sweet water ocean type scent. This one may have come out in the summer, but I only saw it for the first time in September.

Yankee American Home Spiced Orange & Clove

Spiced Orange & Clove
This is a typical orange pomander scent, kind of like cloves plus a note of orange, a bit more savory than sweet, but there's also a waxy note in there. I'm not a fan of orange pomander in general, so I don't like this one.

Yankee American Home Shades of Fall

Shades of Fall
Very weak on cold sniff. Typical cinnamon pumpkiny scent but with a slight perfumey note. Hard to tell because it's so weak.

Yankee American Home Spiced Apple Berries

Spiced Apple Berries
Generic cinnamon apple scent with a fake waxy note.

Yankee American Home Warm & Happy Home

Warm & Happy Home
This is a scent from last year that returned this year, but I did not review it last year. Nice but typical sweet cinnamon nutmeg spice fall scent.

Yankee American Home Cozy Corner

Cozy Corner
Nice warm cashmere scent with a hint of laundry, and just a little sweet floral (gardenia?) perfume note.

Yankee American Home Fall Morning

Fall Morning
I don't like this one. It smells like pear or apple mixed with something bitter that maybe is supposed to be fall leaves. I just can't figure out that bitter note.

Yankee American Home Bountiful Harvest

Bountiful Harvest
A nice but typical sweet cinnamon bakery scent.

Yankee American Home Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Homemade Pumpkin Pie
Typical generic pumpkin pie scent with the nutmeg and a little cinnamon and a slight pie crust note.

Yankee American Home Creamy Pumpkin Cupcake
Creamy Pumpkin Cupcake
Nice creamy milky caramely buttery scent with a little bit of a pumpkin spice note. Very nice, but there are other Walmart wax melts that smell very similar and at half the cost.

Delicious Cranberry, Fresh Balsam Fir, and Sparkling Cinnamon Spice scents are back from last year, and I did full reviews on them at
