This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts from December 2020. These are spa-themed, relaxing scents like last year's. The labels are all muted, pastel tones and say "Relaxation and Tranquility" on them.
I smell sandalwood, lavender, a fresh soapy note, and a bit of fruity floral. The fruity floral is subtle and comprises maybe 40% of the scent, and I think at least one of the fruits is honeydew melon (in fact, this scent smells more like what I think their Sea Salt & Melon scent should smell like). It's sweet but not overly so, and not a floral or perfumey sweetness. Like most of the other scents in this collection, it's difficult to pinpoint the notes in this scent. This one is quite nice.
An incredible scent of coconut with a nutty note (the palm, although it's not a palm scent per se), rich vanilla, and a sweet floral. It could have a barely detectable smidgen of apple way way in the background, but I'm not sure. It's sweet, rich and yummy, and I love it!
I believe this is the same as Eucalyptus Mint from last year's relaxation themed scents. Scents that have the name "Eucalyptus Mint" almost always smell like ScentSationals Zen (soft spearmint with a slight laundry note), and this one is no exception. But this scent is also different than Zen in that the spearmint is more pronounced (but still quite subtle, not nearly as strong as, for instance, ScentSationals Inner Zen), the laundry note is more subtle (or not even there, although it does have a soapy note), and it's not as sweet as Zen (and Zen isn't very sweet to begin with). Very nice, relaxing scent!
Matcha is a green tea with a grassy note, but I don't smell any tea in this scent. I also don't smell pine (juniper). It smells fresh with a mahogany note, a hint of lavender and herbal note, and maybe a smidgen of garden mint (but no nasal clearing effect, so maybe no mint). It's sweet but not overly sweet. It smells similar to a lot of the scents in this collection. It's an okay scent for me.
An incredible, sweet perfumey or men's cologne scent with (not necessarily in this order): warm amber, mahogany, lavender, baby powder, bergamot, lily, rich vanilla, and possibly a barely detectable smidgen of coconut. I don't detect any fruit (and definitely not nectarine, as that smells like peach). I adore this scent on cold sniff! When melted, however, the mahogany really comes out and it's definitely more of a fresh, warm men's cologne scent. Still a fantastic scent, although I liked it just a bit more on cold sniff.
I think I smell mahogany, lavender, and maybe a smidgen of leather, with a fresh, slightly men's body wash note. Last year's Relaxing Spa from their spa-themed line smelled like ScentSationals Black Tux, and so does this scent, although not exactly the same. I'm pretty sure it's the same as last year's scent.
Sea Salt & Melon
A nice fresh, oceany scent with a little bit of an herbal and peppery note, maybe a smidgen of lemon, and possibly a smidgen of bergamot which gives scents a cologney note (although this is not a cologne scent). It could have a men's body wash vibe but it's not really sweet enough. I don't detect any melon notes at all. I like it.
This is not a grapefruit scent at all. It's pear (or apple?), but there's also another fruit in there with a hint of tartness and maybe soapiness that makes it not quite a foodie fruit; otherwise, it would smell like apple or pear flavored bubblegum. Melted, it's obvious what that soapy fruit note is: red currant! So a more appropriate name for this scent would have been Pear and Red Currant. I love it!
