Mainstays Scented Wax Melts - Winter 2017
Click to enlarge


These 3 new Mainstays Winter 2017 scents use hard wax rather than the usual soft messy wax. The surface is slightly greasy, like Scentsy wax. These 3 scents were manufactured by Hanna's Candle exclusively for Walmart. The other Mainstays Winter 2017 scents, such as Pine, Evergreen Spruce, and Cinnamon, have returned from previous years. I reviewed the Pine and Evergreen Spruce scents on November 8, 2016.

I don't know the scent notes of these 3 Mainstays melts, but as soon as I find out, I'll add them to this review.

By The Fire
A nice smoky scent but it's not a woodsy smoky scent, more like almost a foodie smoky scent. There may be a hint of a cologne note, but it's definitely not a cologne scent, nor is it a sweet scent at all. It has a bit of a Play-Doh note but that doesn't really detract from the scent. It smells a lot like the old discontinued Better Homes & Gardens Wooded Mountain Trails and a little bit like the discontinued ScentSationals Camelot, but with slightly different notes.
Throw: Medium, 3 or 3.5 out of 5

Cranberry Mistletoe
Notes: The tangy scent of homemade cranberry sauce mingles with the fresh fragrance of mistletoe to create the perfect aroma for fall or winter.
A nice strong sweet and tart cranberry scent with a pine note. There's also a smidgen of some other berry note in here like raspberry that gives it a bit more richness.
Throw: Strong, 3.5 or 4 out of 5

Gingerbread Spice
A perfect gingerbread scent. I can smell the bread and all the spices, including nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and a hint of cloves and cinnamon. Fantastic yummy scent!
Throw: Strong, 4 out of 5
