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.
A generic crisp fresh apple scent without any spices. It's not overly sweet, so it actually smells a bit authentic.
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.
Buttered Maple (Essence brand)
Maple butterscotch scent, a little generic but very nice.
Cinnamon Sparkle (Christmas Magic Collection)
This smells like sweet cinnamon candy. It's a straight cinnamon scent.
A nice sweet cinnamon bun scent.
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.
Emerald Balsam (Christmas Magic Collection)
A nice pine scent. It has a little bit of that "biting" pine note.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A fantastic zesty lime scent. It's not a sweet lime, more savory, like a spa scent. I really like this one.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Vanilla with a strong nutty note, like peanuts. It smells like a freshly baked vanilla cookie with nuts, and it's not overly sweet.
