AmbiEscents Christmas Wax Melt Reviews 2018

November 8, 2018

This is a review of AmbiEscents Christmas 2018 wax melts from Bed Bath & Beyond. Although they are all very nice scents, unfortunately only one scent is brand new and the rest have returned from previous years.

Candy Cane Crush
Notes: Cool peppermint, pure sugarcane and a touch of vanilla
A perfect candy cane scent, strong nasal clearing peppermint with a sweet slightly creamy vanilla note. This is also available in the Oak & Rye brand for Kroger stores.

Cran Apple Cider
Notes: Fresh apples and ripe cranberries
This scent has been around for years, and it might be my #1 favorite scent ever. I have about a dozen clamshells of this scent. It's the same scent as ScentSationals Apple Berry Crumble from 2015-2016. It's a super sweet rich apple with a berry note (strawberry rhubarb perhaps) and a smidgen of tangy cranberry, and possibly a hint of molasses and even a barely detectable smidgen of cloves. Fantastic rich, sweet, succulent scent! This is not a fall apple scent; it's too sweet, rich and warm. I also reviewed this scent in October 2015.

Pine Wreath
This scent came out in October 2015 and has come back every year. It's pine with eucalyptus and maybe something a tiny bit savory like rosemary. But it also has a little bit of sweetness that I think is vanilla. I also reviewed this scent in October 2015.

Rustic Woodland
Notes: A winter blend of aromatic wild green bay leaf, spicy cinnamon and clove over a tobacco leaf and ebony wood undertone
This is the only brand new scent. On cold sniff this smells like Ginger Ale! It's a soft powdery cinnamon with a hint of what seems to be sweet lime. There might be a smidgen of tobacco in the background. But when melted, that lime note disappears and it smells like cinnamon with a tobacco and woodsy note, although I still detect a smidgen of that Ginger Ale note. It's nice and different.
Throw:
3.75

Santa's Sugar Cookies
A rich, warm, sweet vanilla that smells like buttercream rather than cookies. It's not an authentic scent, but that's okay because it smells great. This scent has been around for years.
Throw:
3.25

Snowball Donut Holes
Notes: Cinnamon with vanilla and powdered sugar
This scent came out in October 2016 and again in October 2017. It smells just like a donut! It's got that sweet doughy scent with a cinnamon note. It's not the same scent as ScentSationals Cider House Donuts though, since I don't smell any apple in this one. This was on sale for $.89, so I suspect it's from last year's inventory.
Throw:
3.50

Sugar Pine
A strong biting pine scent that might have a smidgen of citrus in the background that gives it a tiny bit of a Pine Sol note. This one has been around for many years, at least since 2013 or 2014, and is sometimes also available in the ScentSationals brand at other stores.
Throw:
5.00
