This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts from April 2017. Most of these scents in this lot smell fantastic, but I wish the throw were stronger.
Bamboo & Willow
A fantastic scent, like a hothouse gardenia, rich and intense, but not overly sweet. Also smells like an old-fashioned perfume. There's a faint "green" note in there also that keeps it from being too sweet. It's similar to Sonoma Bamboo from Kohl's.
Fantastic scent that smells like sweet tropical fruit or maybe a very sweet apricot, mixed with a light floral note. Very nice, and not too fruity or too flowery. When melted, I smelled more of the fruit, but within an hour it started to put off a little bit of a cat pee note.
A bright artificial watery scent that smells like a bathroom air freshener. This is the one I thought I was going to like the least because of that artificial note, but I actually like it a lot.
This smells a lot like the Bamboo & Willow scent, a nice gardenia scent, but this one doesn't have the intense hothouse note that Bamboo & Willow has. This smells a bit like White Shoulders perfume, but it's not overly sweet. Melted, however, it smells like an authentic lily-of-the-valley flower. Very nice!
A nice jasmine or gardenia scent, and not overly sweet. There's another note way in the background, maybe a fresh air or watery note, or perhaps a smidgen of laundry, that tempers some of the sweetness. Actually, it smells a bit like Coppertone suntan oil! Very nice!
This is a fresh watery scent with a little floral. It also smells like body wash or shampoo. A great scent for the bathroom.
Fantastic scent, like a fresh fruity floral herbal shampoo.
