This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts from January 2019. I had all but given up on Living Colors wax melts a few months ago after consistently getting poor throw. But I am pleasantly surprised that these new Spring 2019 scents throw quite well. I see that the wax is hard, not soft which has been the case, so it looks as though the wax manufacturer has changed the wax formula. And the company that makes the Living Colors melts is MVP Group Intl., the same company that makes Mainstays melts for Walmart, and just changed the Mainstays formula from soft to hard wax!
This is a very sweet coconut with pineapple, and a little bit of a vanilla and nutty note. It would almost smell like coconut candy, but it has a "harshness" and fake note that I don't care for.
This smells a lot like ScentSationals Zen, but it's not as sweet and has a little more of the mint note. It's a very soft spearmint scent with a bit of a fresh air note in the background and maybe also a smidgen of garden mint. It's nice and relaxing.
A nice sweet laundry scent. It's more soft, like fabric softener, rather than a harsh detergent. There may be a hint of a fruity note in the background, like apple.
A nice super fresh men's body wash with a hint of lavender and possibly a smidgen of lemon. This is not a tea scent at all.
This is a super sweet candy like scent that might have coconut and pineapple notes, and maybe a smidgen of floral. There's a note that I don't care for and I couldn't figure out what is was, and then I remembered I've smelled a scent very similar to this before, and the note is melon, specifically cantaloupe (not watermelon). In fact, that's the main note, and the coconut, pineapple and floral (if those notes do in fact exist) are way in the background. So this scent is a little nauseating to me.
I've smelled this scent before, and I think it's the same scent as Bath & Body Works Lavender Vanilla (or maybe it's Yankee Candle Lavender Vanilla?). It's a great scent, but like with other Lavender Vanilla dupes, I don't really smell lavender, and there's some note that I'm never able to figure out, coconut perhaps. It's that note that makes this scent memorable, and there's nothing else out there like it. I'd say it's more like coconut, vanilla, and a hint of lavender. It smells a little bit like a cleaner, or an odor eliminating scent, but not in a bad way. I really like this scent.
