Aldi Wax Melt Reviews - Summer 2016

April 27, 2016

Read Aldi Wax Melt Reviews from Summer 2016 (Huntington Home brand). The summer wax melts at Aldi are always triple scents. I enjoyed these scents, although as is usually the case with Aldi wax melts, they tend to sometimes be a bit generic.


The Green One
Sunshine
This one is slightly lemony on cold sniff, but there's some other note in the background that I can't figure out, maybe something green or floral? Melted, it smells different from cold sniff. It's a very nice orangey scent (but not straight orange) with something waxy in the background, but not in a bad way. There may also be a smidgen of lemon and floral in the background, but it's not an "orange blossom" scent.

Fresh Rain
I can't figure this one out. It's a little green and savory, maybe with a touch of floral, but it also smells like some kind of industrial cleaner. It doesn't smell like "rain" at all. I don't know if I like it or not. Melted, I still can't figure it out. It's kind of a non-descript green floral scent with a chemical note. I'm not crazy about this one.

Garden Meadow
This is the one I wanted to try the most, because on cold sniff it smells like fresh grass! It's a very green, herbal, slightly savory scent. But it's not lemony or minty. It actually smells a bit like parsley. I really like this one

The Blue One
Peaceful Waters
This is Mainstays Peaceful Waters scent (which is also made by Hanna's Candle), a fantastic sweet salty water scent that smells very slightly like ScentSationals Bali Shores but it's saltier, and I think there's a hint of vanilla or even caramel. Melted, it might also have a hint of coconut.
Throw:
3.00

Blue Skies
This is a fresh air type scent with a watery note and maybe a slightly floral note, and there's something else in the background that's unusual and a little peppery. It's a nice generic fresh scent. It smells much better and less generic when melted. It's a pleasant clean fresh watery scent with a slight laundry note and smidgen of floral. I don't detect that odd peppery note when melted. I like this one.

Endless Weekend
This is a beachy scent that smells like Coppertone suntan oil mixed with a touch of salty water. I really like this one.
Throw:
2.75

The Pink One
This is the same as the Mainstays triple melt from Walmart that had the same 3 scents in it. All of the Mainstays triple melts were discontinued a year or two ago. There's a difference with one of the scents though.
Sweet Pea
The new sweet pea scent is different from the old Mainstays scent. The Mainstays sweet pea scent was like a floral combined with a rich strawberry vanilla, and it almost smelled a little like Mainstays Peaceful Waters. This new version is more like a fresh floral mixed with apple. I thought it might have been the same scent as Better Homes & Gardens Apple Blossom Freesia (a light apple scent with a hint of floral), but it's not. Melted, it's a generic floral with a bit of a harsh chemical undertone. I'm not crazy about it.
Throw:

Peony Petals
I think this is the same as the Mainstays version. It's a floral with a slight baby powder note and maybe a smidgen of vanilla. It has a very slight candy quality, but not like a Pink Sugar type scent. Actually, this one smells more like sweet pea than the actual Sweet Pea scent.
Throw:
4.00

Plumeria
This is very light on cold sniff for both the new version and the Mainstays version. It's just a vague generic floral and I don't detect any unique notes. It's not the same as Better Homes & Gardens Tropical Plumeria Petals.
Throw:

The Red One
Peach
This is a nice authentic peach scent. It's very similar to Mainstays Peach & Mango, but Peach & Mango is a bit sweeter with a slightly creamy component. On cold sniff, this peach scent smells like the outside of a fuzzy peach rather than the juicy insides. But melted, the sweetness comes out and it smells like juicy peach nectar.
Throw:
4.00

Cherry
This is a really nice sweet cherry vanilla scent. It's not a pungent cherry soda or harsh black cherry scent like Mainstays Black Cherry. This one is more like cherry Kool-Aid, but there's not a lot of tartness. I thought it might be similar to Yankee American Home Merry Cherry, but it's not. Merry Cherry is more like a fake cherry candy with a perfumey quality, a really nice scent, but nothing like this Cherry scent, which is more "cherryish" than that. This is a perfect cherry scent.
Throw:
2.75

Plum
This is a sweet plum scent that actually smells more like cherry. Melted, it smells like a cross between peach and cherry. It's a nice generic berry scent, but the scent only lasted about 2 hours.
