This is a review of 1803 Candles soy melts, which I bought from a local gift shop for $5.99 each. They cost $5.50 on their website. These prices are very expensive, so I was hoping they'd be worth the cost. I only bought 3 scents because of the cost, and the fact that I didn't care for most of the scents on cold sniff. Pure soy wax sometimes has an off-putting note in the background, a little mildewy or sour. The consistency of these melts is messy and crumbly, like bleu cheese, as if often the case with pure soy wax. If you've ever tried Burt's Bees wax melts, it's pretty much like that, difficult to work with and quite messy trying to get a cube out of the package.
Perfectly baked, fresh-from-the-oven blueberry pie fills the kitchen with a mouth-watering aroma. The flaky, sugared crust that grandma hand blended is the perfect complement to the blueberries, fresh cream, brown sugar, and vanilla.
I smell blueberry with a smidgen of cinnamon I think. This is not an authentic blueberry scent, but it's also not that harsh fake blueberry scent either. It's very nice.
Smooth vanilla and nutty cardamom blended with a small amount of musk.
This smells like a rich vanilla buttercream with maybe a hint of chocolate and nuts and possibly a smidgen of cinnamon. It smells yummy and decadent! Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell the fennel/anise notes of cardamom, but cardamom does have a nutty note. I also don't smell musk.
Lime and sweet coconuts
I smell a very sweet lime mixed with rich vanilla and a smidgen of coconut. The coconut note is not strong at all. This smells like a rich, creamy lime flavored vanilla buttercream frosting, and I smell a berry note in there even though it's not in a the scent notes. Great scent!
