Aromabeads Singles Wax Melt Reviews

2015 and 2017

This is a review of Aromabeads Singles wax melts from Hanna's Candle. They're so convenient... just open the package and toss the chips in a warmer. Or just open the top and place the entire pack on the special Aromabeads Singles warmer. I really like these wax melts! The scents are very pleasing, strong and bright. And at $1.49 for 1 oz., they're perfect if you just want to try out a new scent!

The Aromabeads Singles wax melts can be found on the Hanna's Candle website, as well as Rite Aid stores (not all Rite Aids, but those that have them usually only carry 4 to 8 scents), Meijer, and possibly some other stores. Many of these scents are also available in regular wax melts through the Hanna's Candle website.

Apple Melon
Notes: Dewy cantaloupe, green apple, cucumber, muguet, freesia, and white musk
Sweet sugary watermelon with a hint of apple. More watermelony than Watermelon Sorbet.
Throw:
2.50

Black Sands
Notes: Orange, lily, bergamot, jasmine, rosewood, heliotrope and musk
Woodsy? Floral? Cologne? I can't describe this one, but it's really good! May be a combination of Sandy Beach and a woodsy cologne? It has a bit of an "old-fashioned" classy cologne vibe.

Blue Sapphire
Notes: Bergamot, lime blossom, cyclamen, clove, tonka, cedar, sandalwood, musk, and patchouli
Clean amber scent with a hint of smoke, like smoky amber cologne.
Throw:
2.00

Blush Strawberry
Notes: Sweet ripe summer strawberries, red raspberry, apple blossom and spun sugar
Strawberry with a hint of vanilla and floral I think. It actually smells like strawberry scented lipstick, or kind of like Pink Sugar without the cotton candy sweetness. Very nice.
Throw:
4.00

Blushed Peony
This scent was made exclusively for Michaels in January 2017, but has since been discontinued. It's not available on the Hanna's Candle website. This smells like a mix of candy and floral, but it's not overly sweet like a Pink Sugar type scent. It's definitely a sweet feminine fragrance though, like a woman's shower gel.
Throw:
3.25

Caramel Apple Toffee
Notes: Tart green apple, pear, brown sugar, creamy toffee, golden caramel, and fudge, swirled with velvety cream
Super sweet, rich and caramely with a hint of apple. Fantastic!
Throw:
4.00

Carmine Rose
Notes: Rose, cyclamen, white musk, and tender woods
A lovely old-fashioned realistic tea rose scent. I love it!
Throw:
3.50

Cashmere Musk
Notes: An intriguing harmony of warm cashmere, ambered sandalwood, earthy patchouli, and spicy peppercorn balanced by fresh cassis, elegant muck, dewy moss, and a sparkle of cool citrus
Rich warm ambery perfume, similar to Better Homes & Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber. Very nice!
Throw:
3.50

Cashmere Sweater
Notes: Sweet berries, shimmering cassis and soft fruits join the floriental richness of white jasmine and lily touched by white amber, sweet vanilla and blonde woods.
Laundry and amber, with perhaps a hint of pear and banana, and maybe a hint of vanilla. This is a hard one to figure out, but I kind of like it.
Throw:
4.00

Cedar Box
Notes: White oak wood, birch, citrus bergamot, florals, musk and cedarwood
A sweet woodsy scent that smells almost exactly like Better Homes & Gardens Pure White Woods, a fantastic slightly sweet cedar type woodsy scent that smells like an upscale furniture store. Very nice!
Throw:
3.00

Cider House
Notes: The delectable aroma of mulled apple cider made with cozy touches of fresh ground cinnamon and warm clove.
This smells like sweet apple cider, without the sour mulling spices. I love it!
Throw:
5.00

Coral Honeysuckle
Notes: This alluring fragrance featuring sweet honeysuckle and a touch of lemon blends effortlessly with a bouquet of orange blossom, yellow freesia, muguet, and gardenia; sweet musk delivers a soothing finish
A fresh clean honeysuckle scent with a hint of something else, maybe berry or a slight tropical note.
Throw:
4.00

Cranberry Mandarin
Notes: Red currant, juicy orange, crisp cranberry, spices, and fresh apple
I smell the orange of the mandarin, with a slight berry note from the cranberry. It smells slightly tropical. Very nice.
Throw:
4.00

Cucumber Granita
This scent was made exclusively for Michaels in January 2017, but has since been discontinued. It's not available on the Hanna's Candle website. On cold sniff this is an herbal lemongrass type scent. It has a bitter lemon rind note but I can also smell the green watery cucumber in the background. It's zesty and savory, but also fresh at the same time, really more of a savory scent. When melted, however, I don't get the zesty lemony notes, only the bland cucumber and it smells a little like paint. I don't care for it.
Throw:
3.00

Ember Glow
Notes: Spiced wood, juniper, cinnamon, patchouli and vanilla
This is plain raw wood with maybe a smidgen of leather. It's a nice pungent natural wood smell without any sweetness, like pencil shavings or a log being split outside. Very manly, but it's not a sweet or cologney scent at all. Fantastic scent!
Throw:
4.50

Eucalyptus Mint
Notes: Eucalyptus leaves, bright magenta thyme, sage, marjoram, rosemary, french lavender, and wild mint
Smells like bathroom cleaner, but not in a bad way. It's minty but has a very fresh clean scent that smells like I've been cleaning the house. I'm not a fan of minty scents, but I like this one because it's not a peppermint or a spearmint, and it's combined with a clean note (the eucalyptus I presume).
Throw:
4.00

Ginger Zest
This scent was made exclusively for Michaels in January 2017, but has since been discontinued. It's not available on the Hanna's Candle website. Wow, this is definitely ginger, no doubt about it! I think there's also a bit of a lemon note in the background which gives it the zest. It's a very authentic ginger scent, not sweet like ginger ale, but like the actual ginger root that you cook with, and the slight lemony note (which is not as strong melted as it is on cold sniff) gives it a little kick. This is a nice energetic scent!
Throw:
4.00

Grandma's Apple Basket
Notes: The crisp clean scent of freshly sliced Granny Smith apples...this deliciously tart and slightly sweet aroma is simply irresistible.
Fresh authentic apple with a hint of caramel and maybe a touch of pear. Great scent!
Throw:
4.00

Grapefruit Pomelo
This scent was made exclusively for Michaels in January 2017, but has since been discontinued. It's not available on the Hanna's Candle website. On cold sniff I smell grapefruit, as well as a succulent peachy note which is probably supposed to be the pomelo (a pomelo smells like grapefruit but sweeter and without the bitterness). It's very refreshing! When melted, however, most of the scent was gone within 15 minutes, replaced by a burnt bitter chemical note.
Throw:
1.50

Hidden Oak Cottage
Notes: Salted driftwood, luminous herbal greens, rich elements of smooth cedar, earthy patchouli, soft sandalwood, dewy oakmoss, and sun-warmed amber
This smells exactly like Luxurious Velvet Woods to me. I really can't tell the difference.
Throw:
2.00

Holiday
Notes: Sweet berries, shimmering cassis and soft fruits join the floriental richness of white jasmine and lily touched by white amber, sweet amber, sweet vanilla and blonde woods
Cinnamon and a little sugar, like candy or Big Red chewing gum. I'm not a fan of straight cinnamon, but this has enough sweetness to keep the cinnamon from being too overpowering.
Throw:
3.00

Iced Cinnamon Buns
Notes: Sweet combination of cinnamon with buttery notes of caramelized sugar
Sweet cinnamon and brown sugar with a hint of rich buttery bakery. I'm not a cinnamon fan, but I love this one.
Throw:
2.00

Jasmine Breeze
Notes: Sweet baltic amber and sandalwood mixed with florals of jasmine, honeysuckle and zinnia, with fresh berries and a hint of vanilla praline
Floral scented light laundry scent. Not specifically jasmine. But I detect a note of something else, maybe a very subtle fruitiness?
Throw:
1.00

Juicy Apple Pomegrante
Notes: Granny Smith apples, pear, jasmine, rich woods, and a touch of green herbs
Strong fresh sweet apple with a hint of berry
Throw:
1.00

Lavender and Thyme
Notes: A beautiful aroma of lavender, jasmine flowers, and rose petals blended with the sultry notes of sandalwood and musk
Realistic lavender, not overly sweet like some fake lavender scents. I don't smell thyme or eucalyptus when melted. Great lavender scent.
Throw:
3.50

Linen Basket
Notes: A balancing blend of dewy ozone, delicate white florals, and soft cyclamen floating above a breezy background of sheer musk
Light clean soapy slightly laundry type floral.
Throw:
0.00

Lotus Blossom
This scent was made exclusively for Michaels in January 2017, but has since been discontinued. This one smells more like a laundry scent than a true floral. I can't figure out the notes, but it seems like there's some kind of fruit in there. And it has a bitter metallic chemical note that I don't like. I had to remove it from the warmer due to that awful bitter note.
Throw:
3.25

Luxurious Velvet Woods
Notes: Fresh greens, blooming tobacco, patchouli, fir needle, cedar, bay leaves, and citrus splashed florals
Sweet "classy" smoky woodsy scent with a smidgen of cologne. Very nice.
Throw:
3.00

Mango Papaya Sorbet
Notes: A refreshing blend of sun-kissed juicy mango and ripe papaya
Smells like a nice combination of watermelon and a citrus note, maybe lemon. It's not overly sweet, and doesn't smell very tropical. But when melted, it has an odd latex paint note.
Throw:
4.00

Night Orchid
Notes: Juicy dark berries, Brazil orange, creamy frangipani, dewy honeysuckle, orris, oud and vanilla musk.
Floral cologne with a hint of smoke? Too weak to tell.
Throw:
0.00

Oatmeal Cookie Crunch
Notes: Wholesome oatmeal is blended with spicy cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg.
Smells just like an oatmeal cookie, with a little bit of fall spice, and even raisins! Yummy!
Throw:
4.00

Oceans
This scent was made exclusively for Michaels in January 2017, but has since been discontinued. This is a nice pleasant bathroom scent, fresh and watery with a hint of floral and laundry and maybe a smidgen of baby powder. Smells like a fresh women's shower gel.
Throw:
3.50

Peony & Rose Bouquet
Notes: This fresh floral fragrance blends notes of pink peony, rose, orange flower and blushing hibiscus with effervescent citrus and berry nuances; warm woods and musk provide a perfect warming finish.
Bright crisp rose and peony mix, but it has a harsh, bitter note that I don't care for.
Throw:
3.00

Pumpkin Butter
Notes: A delicious fall treat... harvest pumpkin interwoven with delectable notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pure vanilla.
Rich buttery slightly salty sweet cinnamon vanilla. Great scent!
Throw:
4.00

Red Sandalwood
Notes: An intense blend of lime, cedarwood, jasmine, eucalyptus, orange flower, patchouli leaf oil and sandalwood.
Sweet wood with herbal, cologne and amber notes.
Throw:
2.00

Sandy Beach
Notes: An intriguing blend of gardenia, lime, ozone, fruity coconut, sweet praline, and fresh muguet
One of my favorite scents! It smells just like Coppertone suntan oil, with a hint of salty water and a slight perfume note.
Throw:
3.50

Ski Resort
Notes: A white cedar, firewood, and incense blend that captures all that a winter ski lodge has to offer.
Mostly mint, with a hint of sweet balsam.
Throw:
3.00

Smoked Vanilla
Notes: The inviting aroma of freshly baked ginger snaps; warm ginger infused with spicy cinnamon sprinkled with pure vanilla sugar.
Sweet vanilla with cinnamon, and a hint of smokiness. Similar to Oatmeal Cookie Crunch, but sweeter, with the smoky note, and no bakery or raisins.
Throw:
4.00

Soft Lilac Petals
Notes: Fresh-picked lilac blended with violet, precious woods, and berry-infused musk
Sweet fresh generic lilac but in a good way. I love it!
Throw:
4.00

South Seas
Notes: A delightful medley of driftwood and sea kelp, tropical fruits, and a sweet hint of caramel.
Fresh salty water scent.
Throw:
3.00

Sparkling Citrus Zest
Notes: An enjoyable quality of citrus zest with a punch of effervescent spirits.
Generic citrus (orange and grapefruit notes with a hint of lemon), but it smells great!
Throw:
5.00

Spiced Peach
Notes: Ginger, lemon zest, fresh juicy peach, apricot marmalade, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of buttery crust
A nice milky, creamy peach. I don't detect any spice. Not fake, harsh, or overly sweet. This one should be called "Peaches & Cream"! I'm not usually a fan of peach scents, but I really like this one.
Throw:
3.50

Sweet Dreams
Notes: As the sun sets gently, beautiful amethyst rays meet nightfall creating a most memorable sunset. It's warmth is balanced by subtle vanilla goodness, and kissed with fruity tropical berry.
I smell bananas with a hint of berry and maybe a smidgen of caramel or amber, and possibly a hint of floral. Great scent.
Throw:
3.00

Sweet Strawberry Preserves

Very generic slightly waxy apple scent with a hint of cinnamon.
Throw:
3.00

Warm Butter Cookie
Notes: The scrumptious scent of fresh-from-the-oven vanilla pastry together with warm melted butter, and pure cane sugar.
Rich buttery cookie, similar to Oatmeal Cookie Crunch but without spice or raisins. Not very sweet, more like pound cake. Very nice!
Throw:
3.50

Warm Kitchen Spice
Notes: Warm spicy blend of cinnamon, woods, vanilla, pumpkin, bourbon, and clove
Generic fall spice scent.
Throw:
1.00

Warm Rustic Woods
Notes: A luxurious blend of earthy tobacco, rich cedar, and crushed patchouli infused with spicy pink peppercorn, smoked nutmeg, crisp mandarin leaf, and creamy hints of smooth Tonka vanilla.
Woodsy ambery perfume or cologne with a slightly smoky note. It's the same scent as Better Homes & Gardens Warm Rustic Woods from Walmart. Fantastic scent!
Throw:
3.00

Watermelon Sorbet
Notes: The refreshing, mouth-watering, scent of a juicy summer watermelon
Sweet sugary watermelon, fresh and clean and not too heavy on the melon. Really smells like sorbet! I'm not a fan of watermelon scents, but I really like this one.
Throw:
4.00

Wild Berry Cobbler
Notes: Juicy blackberries and sweet cranberries, dusted with confectioners sugar
Sweet blueberry with buttery bakery. Fantastic!
Throw:
3.00

Wild Cherry
Notes: Cherry blossom notes drift through Asian lotus and delicate rose, dew covered lily, and lustrous greens
I'm not a fan of cherry scents, but on cold sniff this had more of a berry note rather than a harsh "black cherry" type scent. But when melted it smelled like cherry scented cough syrup, not medicinal but just a fake cherry syrup smell. I'm not a fan.
Throw:
2.50

Wild Cherry Blossom
Notes: Cherry blossom notes drift through Asian lotus and delicate rose, dew-covered lily and lustrous greens.
This smells like old soap. But I happen to love that smell!
Throw:

Smoky pine, like a Christmas tree. Great scent.
Throw:
