A&I Shopko Wax Melt Reviews

April 28, 2019

I bought these A&I wax melts (made for Shopko) from Gabe's in April 2019 for $1.99. Shopko just went out of business, so you can only buy these at a store like Gabe's that sells discontinued items, or online from Amazon or eBay. These wax melts use soft, messy wax that's a little difficult to get out of the clamshell.

Beachside
I've smelled this scent many times before. It's a crisp oceany water scent with a peppery note. It has only a smidgen of sweetness, just enough to maybe smell like a fresh shower gel scent. It's very nice.
Throw:
3.25

Blue Waters
This is a sweet perfumey scent with gardenia I think, but it also has a bit of an Oriental perfume note, a watery note, a hint of a soft, warm ambery note, and possibly a tiny smidgen of a baby powder note. Although the notes are shared by a lot of other scents out there, this scent is unusual and I've never smelled it before. I really like it.
Throw:
3.50

Blushed Jasmine
A very nice powdery floral scent with a little bit of a perfumey note. I think I smell rose, and just a hint of jasmine, and possibly a barely detectable smidgen of fruit way in the background (apple? cherry?). But there are some other floral notes in there that I can't identify. I think this smells more like what the Peony Blush scent should smell like. It smells a bit like a cherry blossom scent. I really like this one.
Throw:
3.25

Eucalyptus Mint
This is a combination of eucalyptus and spearmint, although it's not really minty and doesn't have a Vicks Vaporub or sinus clearing effect. It has another note in the background which might be sandalwood, although it's not a woodsy scent at all. It smells a lot like ScentSationals Zen, but Zen is much sweeter and has a hint of a laundry note (I like Zen a bit more).
Throw:
4.00

Golden Citrus
A very nice zesty savory lemony scent. It's not sweet at all. It smells a little bit like Better Homes & Gardens Meyer Lemon Basil, but with some different notes.
Throw:
1.50

Mandarin Blossom
A strong sweet orange scent that smells a bit like an orange slushie. I really like it!
Throw:
3.50

Peony Blush
This smells just like pineapple juice! It's sweet and authentic, and although I generally don't like pineapple scents, I really like this one! It has a bit of a sweet citrusy note too, like there may be a hint of sweet pink grapefruit or tangerine.
Throw:
4.00

Soft Cashmere
This is almost exactly the same as Better Homes & Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber. It's a warm, velvety, ambery perfume scent with a little bit of a musk note and possibly a smidgen of patchouli. It's one of my favorite scents. This scent is slightly sweeter and warmer than the BHG scent, not more perfumey, but maybe with a smidgen of vanilla or a candy note. I love both scents, but I like this one a little more.
Throw:
4.00

Suit & Tie
A nice subtle slightly woodsy/smoky men's cologne scent. It's not overly sweet or "annoyingly" cologney. It's a bit similar to ScentSationals Black Tux, but it's not the same scent, and it's a little more smoky.
Throw:
3.25

Vanilla Buttercream
Just like the scent name, this is a vanilla buttercream scent. There may be a barely detectable smidgen of chocolate and coconut way in the background, but when melted I just smell the vanilla buttercream. It's nice.
Throw:
3.50
