This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Christmas Rustic Cottage Wax Melts (Winter Wonder) from 2017. This is the first hard wax that I've found at Big Lots. Living Colors wax melts are always soft and messy, so these scents might not be the Living Colors brand. I suspect that they might have been made by ScentSationals, because some of the scents are dupes of older ScentSationals wax melt scents.
A spruce scent with a slightly smoky note and just a little bit of that biting pine note. On cold sniff it smells like every other pine scent out there, but when melted, it had a little bit of an electrical burning note!
A straight cinnamon scent, like Red Hot cinnamon candies, but also has a little bit of a Cinnabon cinnamon roll note.
A fake butterscotch scent, but not in a bad way. It smells exactly like an old discontinued ScentSationals or Better Homes & Gardens scent, but I don't remember the name. It's not Better Homes & Gardens Butterscotch Maple Cream, as that scent is sweeter than this one, and with the hint of maple.
This is a fantastic chocolate peppermint scent. It smells similar to the old discontinued Better Homes & Gardens Chocolate Peppermint Truffle. Now that it's melting, I think it might indeed be the same scent! Now I have to wonder if ScentSationals (which makes Better Homes & Gardens melts) made these melts for Big Lots.
