At Home Wax Melt Reviews

November 14, 2017

This is a review of the At Home brand wax melts. They use very soft, messy wax that I had to scoop out with a butter knife. Putting the wax melts in the freezer for a bit should help though. For the most part, although the scents were nice, they were rather standard and generic, without too many surprises or creative blends. These are $2.99 at the At Home stores.

Apple Cider (Essence brand)
A nice but slightly generic sweet apple cider scent.
Throw:
2.50

Apple Orchard
A generic crisp fresh apple scent without any spices. It's not overly sweet, so it actually smells a bit authentic.
Throw:
2.75

Blushing Petals
I've smelled this scent before, and it's awful, a nauseatingly bitter scent with a terrible metallic chemical note. There is a bit of a floral note in the background with maybe a hint of baby powder, but it's barely noticeable behind the bitterness.
Throw:
3.75

Buttered Maple (Essence brand)
Maple butterscotch scent, a little generic but very nice.
Throw:
3.25

Cinnamon Sparkle (Christmas Magic Collection)
This smells like sweet cinnamon candy. It's a straight cinnamon scent.
Throw:
3.00

Cinnamon Streusel
A nice sweet cinnamon bun scent.
Throw:
2.00

Clean Linen
Like the Blushing Petals and Candlewarmers Ocean Tide scents, the main note is that strong bitter chemical note. I can smell the laundry notes in the background, but the bitter chemical note ruins it.
Throw:
3.75

Emerald Balsam (Christmas Magic Collection)
A nice pine scent. It has a little bit of that "biting" pine note.
Throw:
3.25

Eucalyptus Leaves
This smells almost exactly like ScentSationals Zen, that slightly minty spa laundry scent. It's not a eucalyptus scent at all, as that would be savory and slightly zesty. The mint in this scent is a spearmint or garden mint (but no toothpastey notes), mixed with a sweet almost laundry scent. It's nice and relaxing.
Throw:
3.75

Frosted Cookies (Christmas Magic Collection)
A fantastic creamy milky vanilla scent with a bakery note. It smells like vanilla cookies but it's very milky and not very sweet. There may also be a smidgen of a nutty note, but it's a different scent from their Vanilla Bean scent.
Throw:
3.25

Harvest Pumpkin (Essence brand)
I've smelled this scent before, and it's really not a pumpkiny scent. I smell molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, apple, vanilla, and raisins, as well as a little bit of a sweet "biting" note that I can't figure out. It smells almost exactly like the old Better Homes & Gardens Enchanted Pumpkin Valley.
Throw:
3.00

Island Mango
This is a fake, slightly "biting" pineapple, and it's not very sweet. I'm not a fan of pineapple scents, but there's something about this one that I kind of like.
Throw:
3.75

Lavender Chamomile
A nice lavender scent with just a smidgen of sweetness. It's not a medicinal lavender, nor is it a sweet powdery lavender. I don't smell chamomile or any tea notes.
Throw:
1.00

Lime Cilantro
A fantastic zesty lime scent. It's not a sweet lime, more savory, like a spa scent. I really like this one.
Throw:
2.50

Midnight Orchid
I found this one a week after I bought the others, but I didn't get it. It's a nice cologne type scent with a warm sweet floral note, but it was very weak on cold sniff.

Patchouli Amber
This is almost an exact dupe of ScentSationals Dark Musk, ScentSationals Barton Springs (H.E.B. exclusive), ScentSationals Date Night, and the Moonlit Walk (blue side) side of ScentSationals Date Night duo. It's a fantastic super rich, warm, ambery and slightly woodsy men's cologne scent.
Throw:
3.75

Sea Mist
A pleasant watery fresh air scent with a slight floral note and maybe a smidgen of vanilla. There's also a little bit of a musty note, but not in a bad way. It would be a nice bathroom scent.
Throw:
3.00

Teakwood
This smells like sandalwood, a light slightly milky wood, but there's also a sweet warm slightly cologney note (although it's not a cologne scent). It's a pleasant scent.
Throw:
2.75

Vanilla Bean
Vanilla with a strong nutty note, like peanuts. It smells like a freshly baked vanilla cookie with nuts, and it's not overly sweet.
Throw:
3.00
