Aldi Fall Wax Melt Reviews 2017

October 4, 2017

Read Aldi Fall Wax Melt Reviews (Huntington Home brand) from 2017. Banana Nut Bread might be one of my favorite scents ever! The vanilla and apple pie scents were generic though.

Banana Nut Bread
Notes: Freshly baked bread, bananas, apricots, walnuts, vanilla, whipped butter, ginger, nutmeg crystals, and clove
This is the same scent as Hanna's Candle Banana Nut Bread (not been confirmed by Hanna's Candle), so when this scent sells out at Aldi, you can buy it from Hanna's Candle. Super rich and buttery and banana-ey with a slightly salty nutty note, this one puts most other banana bread scents to shame. It's one of my favorite scents ever!

Here are my comparisons to some other similar scents:

  • Mainstays Banana Nut Bread
    There's no comparison at all; the Mainstays version is nice, but a bit artificial. Aldi is the clear winner.
  • Yankee Candle Home Inspiration Banana Walnut Bread (same as the regular Yankee Candle Banana Nut Bread)
    The nutty note in the Aldi version is a little saltier and more peanutty and slightly richer, while the nutty note in the Yankee version is more of a very slightly bitter walnut note. And the Aldi version has a stronger banana note. So for me, although I love them both, the Aldi Banana Nut Bread has a slight edge over the Yankee version.
  • Goose Creek Sweet Banana Bread
    They both smell fantastic. The Goose Creek version is saltier, richer, and nuttier, and with a slight caramel note. It's not as banana-ey as the Aldi version though. But it's a scent monster with a 5 out of 5 throw. So for me, because of the richer, nuttier, slightly caramely scent and the stronger throw, Goose Creek Sweet Banana Bread does have a slight edge (but would be a much clearer winner for me if it had a stronger banana note).
Throw:
3.75

Pumpkin Brulee
Notes: Harvest pumpkin interwoven with delectable notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pure vanilla.
This is not a typical pumpkin scent at all. I do smell pumpkin spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, but it's more cinnamony than most pumpkin pie scents, and I also smell raisins and sweet molasses. It's a fantastic scent. It might be the same scent as the Hanna's Candle Pumpkin Brulee (not confirmed by Hanna's Candle), which I reviewed similarly.
Throw:
5.00

Vanilla Frosted Cupcake
Notes: Warm Vanilla cupcake with luscious butter cream accents and sweet essences of delectable sugarcane
This is just a standard sweet vanilla scent. This is the same as the Vanilla Frosted Cupcake scent from Hanna's Candle (not confirmed by Hanna's Candle).
Throw:
2.25

Warm Apple Pie
Notes: A warm blend of fresh-picked apples, dashed with spicy accents of warm nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice over a base of brown sugar and vanilla cream
A standard, generic apple pie scent. It's a fake apple scent, but it actually smells fairly good. It's the same as the Warm Apple Pie scent from Hanna's Candle (not confirmed by Hanna's Candle).
Throw:
3.00
