These ScentSationals wax melts scents are only available at HEB stores in Texas.



Austin City Lights

Notes: Eastern oud wood, balsamic amber and Moroccan patchouli fuse with breezy orange blossom, golden nutmeg and pure vanilla touched by warm, black musk.

This is the same scent as the old ScentSationals Oud Noir, a deep resinous almost tree sappy woodsy scent with a sweet slightly perfumey note. It's similar to ScentSationals Exotic Sandalwood, but that scent has a slightly sour, slightly vanilla/chocolatey note with a bit of patchouli. There may be a hint of vanilla in this scent as well, but if so it's very subtle. It smells a little like ScentSationals Vanilla Woods, but deeper and more intense. It's one of my favorite scents.

Throw: Medium, 3 out of 5 (but Oud Noir throw is bold, 5 out of 5)



Barton Springs

This is the same scent as Moonlit Walk, the blue side of ScentSationals Date Night duo that came out several years ago and might still be available at some Walmarts. It's a fantastic super rich, warm, ambery, sweet, slightly peppery men's cologne scent. The scent lasted over 24 hours!

Throw: Strong, 4 out of 5



Indian Paint Brush

Notes: Leafy greens, aquatic floralcy of water lily and lotus flower, sparkling ozone, and glittering musk

This is the same scent as ScentSationals Water Lily & Lotus from February 2017, a clean zesty soapy herbal peppery ginger scent. It's not sweet at all, and it smells a lot like ScentSationals Thai Ginger. I like it!

Throw: Strong, 3.5 out of 5



Stars at Night

Notes: Ripe fig, sweet berry, and absinthe

This is the same scent as last year's ScentSationals Midnight Summer, and the notes for that scent were figs layered with Indian jasmine, ballerina rose and green notes of absinthe. It's a dark blackberry scent with floral, although it's not really a berry scent or a floral scent. This smells a lot like ScentSationals Blackberry Cider, although a little sweeter, with a bit of a "pink sugar" note. It also has a very subtle hint of men's cologne. A fantastic, and "sexy" scent.

Throw: Strong, 4 out of 5



Tres Leches

A sweet vanilla buttercream scent with a smidgen of caramel I think, and maybe a barely detectable hint of chocolate. Melted, there may also be a very slight hint of cinnamon. It's richer and not as one-dimensional as a lot of other vanilla scents out there. Actually, I think it's the same scent as Better Homes & Gardens Vanilla Cookie Crunch, but if not, it's very similar.

Throw: Medium, 3.5 out of 5
