This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts from March 2019. These Living Colors wax melts from Big Lots use the same hard wax as the ones I reviewed in January. The ones I reviewed in February were soft wax, but I suspect they were a few months old. Although the new wax is hard, it still has a greasy surface, but it's a much better consistency than the old soft wax.
A fantastic fruity floral cherry blossom scent with a little bit of a rich vanilla buttercream note, as well as possibly a smidgen of caramel and strawberry, and a hint of candy and perfumey notes. It smells a little bit like Yankee Candle Floral Candy, which I love, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I like this scent even more! Even though throw is not really strong, I'm going to keep it because it smells so good (I might just sniff it in the package from time to time!)
This is a fresh watery herbal scent. It's just slightly sweet, so it's not a shower wash type of scent. The herbal note smells like a garden herb, maybe garden mint, although it's not actually "mint" scent. It's also a little bit peppery. I think there's also a smidgen of a floral in the background that gives it the very slight sweetness that keeps it from being too savory. It's quite nice.
A fantastic sweet lilac scent with a hyacinth note. Although it's a little perfumey, it's more authentic than a lot of lilac scents out there. It's similar to Yankee Candle Sweet Lilac, and a little similar to Mainstays Blue Hyacinth. I don't detect any other floral notes.
It's peach (most likely a dupe of another scent) with a very slightly sour note, but it also has a milky note that makes it smell like peaches and cream. It's just a little bit sweet, not as sweet as the actual peach fruit though. It's VERY milky and creamy like, well, heavy cream and peaches! It's a much nicer scent than I expected it to be.
This is a different lemon scent than their Lemon Bars or Lemonberry Scone scent. This smells like "kitchen lemon", like a fresh sweet lemon scented dish detergent. It's not a bakery or lemonade or spa type lemon scent at all. It's sweet and lemony and clean (but not soapy), and it smells great. After melting for about a half hour, it started taking on a bit of a chemical note that I didn't care for. The scent started dissipating within 2 hours.
A sweet floral scent (a little lilac-y, but there are other flowers in there) with a warm ambery note, a fresh watery note, and a smidgen of a Coppertone suntan oil note. I really like this scent! But when melted, it took on an odd slightly stinky metallic note that ruined it for me.
