Candle Warmers Wax Melts Reviews

Candle Warmers Wax Melts Reviews

I bought these Candle Warmers Etc. scented wax melts from the At Home store. The wax is very hard and was stuck to the inside of the package, so it was extremely difficult and frustrating to get the wax out without breaking the flimsy plastic. Since the wax is already very hard, putting it in the freezer made it worse. I almost gave up on this review!

I did another Candle Warmers wax melts review in January 2016, which can be seen at I don't recall the wax being as hard or difficult to get out of the package as these were.

After the Rain

Notes: Calm, clean freshness after a storm; notes of white woods, floral citrus, and musk

A nice fresh watery green scent with a little bit of an herbal note.

Throw: Mild, 2.5 to 3 out of 5

Blackberry Cobbler

Notes: Wild blackberries and ripe blueberries in a sweet buttery crust

A yummy blueberry bakery scent that I've smelled many times before. There's also a hint of zing from the blackberry note.

Throw: Bold, 5 out of 5, a scent monster that took over the house!

Cozy Cashmere

Notes: Warm blend of cashmere, plum blossoms, and soft amber

This smells almost exactly like Better Homes & Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber, a beautiful warm rich cashmere/amber sweet musky scent, one of my favorites. It's a little perfumey, but more like an expensive skin cream.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

Eucalyptus Spearmint

Notes: Relaxing eucalyptus paired with fresh spearmint

Fantastic fresh mint scent with a hint of eucalyptus. It's not a toothpastey spearmint at all, but more like garden mint with just a smidgen of sweetness, plus the slightly savory eucalyptus. It's almost a spa type scent, and it has that sinus clearing effect if you put your nose close to it. Melted, it smells like savory salad mint, in a good way.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

Freesia Blossom

Notes: Fresh freesia with hints of lime, lily and sweet amber

This smells like a fresh air oceany scent with a hint of floral and a smidgen of saltiness, and a soapy note. It's nice and not overly sweet. Perfect for a bathroom.

Throw: Throw: Mild, 2.5 out of 5

Lavender Vanilla

Notes: Fresh-picked lavender, soft woodland herbs, sparkling white musks, and creamy vanilla

This smells like lavender, but there's a smidgen of something else that gives it a richness, probably the vanilla. It's not a sweet, medicinal, or herbal lavender, but just right.

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5

Lemon Sugar

Notes: Fresh lemon, coarse white sugar, and soft cashmere wood

A sweet lemony scent. It's kind of a lemonade scent with a hint of saltiness which adds richness, but it's also very sweet. It has a little bit of a soapy sour note on cold sniff, but not when melted. It also has a smidgen of a sweet perfumey scent, and looking at the scent notes, that's probably the cashmere wood.

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5

Ocean Tide

Notes: Tranquil water, warm sand, and tropical flowers

This is a sweet watery scent but it has that strong weird bitter chemical note that both At Home Blushing Petals and At Home Clean Linen have. It really detracts from the scent, because that's all I can smell.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

Roasted Espresso

Notes: Freshly brewed espresso with highlights of creamy vanilla and caramel.

A fake but interesting coffee scent that smells more like that instant coffee made with chicory. It has a hint of a nutty quality. It's not sweet, but it also doesn't have that strong burnt or bitter note that a lot of coffee scents have. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell vanilla or caramel at all.

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5

Summer Mango

Notes: Juicy mango ripened in the summer sun, paired with bergamot and lemon zest

This smells like orange with a smidgen of a tropical note. I really like it!

Throw: Bold, 5 out of 5, a scent monster that took over the house!

Watermelon Lemonade

Notes: Tart lemonade infused with juicy watermelon and fresh spearmint

This smells fantastic, and just like the scent name. It's a perfect combination of zesty lemonade and sweet watermelon, and there may be just a smidgen of tea. The scent was strong for about 2 hours then started fading. Looking at the scent notes, I think the tea note is actually the spearmint, although I don't smell mint at all.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

White Peony

Notes: Fragrant peony with hints of jasmine, fig, and vanilla

A delicate floral with a slight baby powder note, and a hint of a warm almost ambery note. Maybe also a smidgen of vanilla, and hint of a classy slightly fruity note like fig or currant. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on. It's a pleasant scent, and I like it although it's weak on cold sniff. Nice for a bedroom or a baby's room. Melted, I definitely smell the fruity fig note which smells like a warm rich slightly blackberry note, a little bit like Scentsy Luna.

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5
