Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts Reviews - July 2018

July 11, 2018

This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts from July 2018. I think Lemon Cookies (Savannah) is the best scent from this lot.

Cabernet (Napa Valley)
As expected, this is a grapey scent. But it also has a sweet floral note, like gardenia. It smells fake and has a bit of a waxy note.
Throw:
2.75

Cactus Berry (Sedona)
On cold sniff this is a fake raspberry scent with something else in the background that I can't figure out, maybe a patchouli or fake chocolate? It's not really a foodie scent though, as it's very fake. I don't like it. When melted, it smells like poop. Literally. Sweet poop.
Throw:
4.00

Cedar Forest (Vancouver)
A fantastic pine scent with a woodsy note. It's a little sharp and pungent, but in a good way.
Throw:
3.00

Cinnamon Chai (Seattle)
A nice subtle cinnamon scent with maybe a smidgen of vanilla or even a barely detectable hint of a perfumey note way in the background. It's not an intense gum or candy type cinnamon, nor is it a bakery cinnamon. I don't detect any chai or tea notes.
Throw:
2.75

Lemon Cookies (Savannah)
This is the same scent as their popular Lemon Bars scent that came out in 2015 (and Lime Mojito from 2016, and a couple of other lemony Living Colors scents). It's one of the best lemon scents I've ever smelled in a wax melt. It smells a bit like the lemon custard inside a lemon meringue pie, sweet and rich with a hint of buttercream, but not truly a bakery scent either (no pie crust notes). Living Colors has a lot of duds, but this is one of their few scents that is truly phenomenal.
Throw:
5.00

Seaside (Malibu)
A pleasant fresh men's body wash scent, kind of like a "Cool Water", but slightly sweeter and more subtle. Perfect for a bathroom.
Throw:
3.50
