Barn Candle Company is a small company in Nebraska that makes candles, wax melts, room spray, diffusers, and related accessories. Their website is and their Facebook page is They're also on Twitter and Pinterest. Customers can order as retail, wholesale, or as part of a fundraiser. Their products are found in many stores throughout the U.S.

Barn Candle Company's wax melts are made from pure palm wax. Palm wax is all natural and environmentally friendly. It's a hard wax rather than soft messy soy wax. The wax has a beautiful iridescent look. Palm wax prefers a higher melting temperature than the standard 20W warmer, so I used a 24W warmer for these melts.

Acai Berry

Notes: A tropical medley of pineapple, mango, mandarin and raw coconut from the Brazilian Islands.

This is a fruity scent with a creamy note and a hint of a grapefruit and tropical note. There's also something else I can't put my finger on that makes this smell a tiny bit like Victoria's Secret Love Spell dupe wax melt scents. It's an interesting scent, and I kind of like it.

Throw: Mild, 3 out of 5

Amethyst Garden

Notes: A sophisticated light floral blend wafting through a spring breeze with the fragrance of satsuma plum, pear, quince apple, lemon blossom, allspice, star jasmine and vanilla orchid.

A lovely scent that smells like oriental spice perfume with a hint of baby powder, and a little bit of an apple note. I love it!

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5

Bamboo & Hemp

Notes: Bamboo stalks are complimented with natural vetiver and patchouli with undertones of hemp seed and oakmoss

This might be my favorite scent of the bunch. It smells a little like expensive shampoo, but it's more than that. It's a honeysuckle type floral, but not overly sweet, and with an herbal note. But I think I also detect a rich vanilla note. And it's soapy with maybe a hint of laundry and possibly a barely detectable smidgen of baby powder. It's just amazing! Looking at the scent notes, I don't think I detect bamboo, which has kind of a green raw woodsy coconut note. But vetiver and oakmoss, absolutely. I don't detect patchouli either, but that might be the rich vanilla note (patchouli sometimes has a chocolatey note).

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5

Barn Burner

Notes: That feeling when a guy walks by and it's all you can do to not spin on your heels just to see where that divine scent came from

A fantastic men's cologne scent. It's not the usual men's body wash type scent, but more like good department store men's cologne, a little like Hugo Boss.

Throw: Medium, 3 out of 5

Barn Special

Notes: Our signature scent is an aromatic blend of freshly cut apples, juicy oranges, spicy and rich cinnamon, orange clove and colorful cranberries.

A very sweet cinnamon apple scent with a clove note. I think I also smell cranberry, and perhaps a barely detectable smidgen of orange, which gives it a tiny bit of a pomander note. I normally don't like pomander (it smells weird to me), but it's very subtle in this scent. I really like this one! Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on. Melted, the orange clove pomander notes come out a little more, but it's still a great warm cozy fall scent.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

Berry Kisses

Notes: The sweet flavor of chocolate covered raspberries.

A yummy chocolate fudge scent with a hint of raspberry. It's very fudgy and cocoa-ey and not overly sweet. When melting, the raspberry note comes out a bit more.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 out of 5

Cherry Blossom

Notes: Citrusy, with fruity green top notes with floral middle notes of Rose, Lily of the Valley and Jasmine enhanced with long lasting sweet, woody and musk bottom notes.

This is weak on cold sniff, but I smell a little bit of cherry with a slight floral note, and maybe a hint of peach. It's definitely not a cherry blossom scent (which doesn't actually smell like cherries).

Throw: Faint, 2 out of 5

Citrus & Sea Salt

Notes: A tropical aroma, complete with a lime beverage rimmed with coarse sea salt

This is different from other scents I've smelled with this name that are usually spa type scents. This smells like lime soda, or ginger ale with extra lime. It's not fizzy, but it's definitely an intense lime scent, and not overly sweet like a creamy lime beverage. There's no coconut either.

Throw: Bold, 5 out of 5

Coconut Lime Verbena

Notes: Coconut shavings are enhanced with a blend of lime, verbena, vanilla, and light musk.

Coconut with a little bit of a lime note. A nice refreshing summer scent.

Throw: Medium, 3 out of 5

Country Rain

Notes: The boom of thunder and the clap of lighting are followed by the splash of clear and beautiful rain. This clean, fresh fragrance captures the aroma after a rain storm.

A fresh very sweet watery scent with a floral note. I've smelled this scent before from other companies, and I really like it.

Throw: Medium, 3 to 3.5 out of 5

Freshly Ground

Notes: That moment the Barista grinds a freshly roasted batch of coffee beans

This is not really an authentic coffee scent, but it's different and I really like it. It smells like mocha fudge. It's a rich warm chocolatey coffee scent.

Throw: Medium, 3.5 out of 5

Grandpa's Porch

Notes: Sweet pipe tobacco

I really like this scent. It smells like cherry tobacco and cedar with a smidgen of baby powder.

Throw: Very faint, 2 out of 5

Lemon Chiffon

Notes: Tarty, sweet, lemon fragrance collides with the perfect velvet smooth texture.

This smells like lemon dish detergent with a hint of bakery, but in a good way. It's fresh and clean, but also yummy! The bakery notes came out a little more as time went on, but it also took on a slightly burnt note. Still a nice scent though.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 out of 5


Notes: A crisp marine scent blended with delicate water lily, rose and cyclamen in this refreshing ocean aroma

A delicate watery scent with a hint of a floral and maybe a smidgen of a baby powder note. It's not overly sweet and does have a little bit of an "oceany" note. I really like it.

Throw: Mild, 2.5 to 3 out of 5

Ruby Red

Notes: Dripping with the juicy fragrances of a winter Ruby Red grapefruit, spilling with flavor.

This is a sour, savory, salty, zesty scent with a lemony grapefruit note. But it doesn't smell like real grapefruit. It's interesting though, and I do like it.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

Rustic Grace

Notes: Pure and white as a bridal bouquet, filled with the sweet smells of hyacinth and citrus

This smells like a popular wax melt scent called Amazing Grace, a classy perfume scent. But there's another a smidgen of another note in there which I guess is the "rustic" part, maybe tobacco and citrus? I don't smell that other note as much when melted though. I really like this scent.

Throw: Medium, 3 out of 5

Salted Caramel

Notes: The rich, smooth buttery flavors of your favorite childhood caramel, with the final nodes of sea salt that add that final blend of sweet and salty.

This is different from other salted caramel scented wax melts I've smelled. It smells like vanilla buttercream with a caramel note, a little maple... and a hint of bacon! It's a really nice scent.

Throw: Faint, 2.5 out of 5


Notes: It will take you back to Saturday morning cartoons enjoyed with a big bowl of fruity cereal.

On cold sniff this smells like a combination of bakery lemon and kitchen lemon (like lemon-scented dish detergent), with a hint of orange and a smidgen of a soapy spa-type lemongrass. But when melted, it smells like Fruit Loops cereal. I really like it, but it started to smell a little burnt after about 2 hours.

Throw: Strong, 3.5 to 4 out of 5

Stress Relief

Notes: Soothing and relaxing aroma of eucalyptus, fresh mint, sage, and musk

This smells just like ScentSationals' Zen scent, a slightly spearminty soapy scent with maybe a hint of a sandalwood note. It's a nice subdued relaxing scent. Looking at the scent notes, eucalyptus has a bit of a pine note, and I don't smell that. I do detect the musk, which gives this just a smidgen of a perfumey note. Very nice scent.

Throw: Medium, 3.5 out of 5

Strawberry Rhubarb

Notes: A country patch of hand picked strawberries blended with freshly cut stalks of rhubarb

A fantastic rich sweet juicy succulent strawberry scent, like strawberry jam. I love this one!

Throw: Bold, 5 out of 5

Tropical Punch

Notes: Bring on Summer and a cold glass of Kool-Aid! This fragrance smells like cherry, strawberry, and orange with a touch of lemon lime thrown in for good measure.

I don't think I've ever had a wax melt that smells as much like cherry Kool-Aid as this one does on cold sniff, and super strong on cold sniff too. Fantastic! But melted, it lost a lot of that cherry note and took on a very chemical type note.

Throw: Mild, 2.5 to 3 out of 5
