Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts Reviews - Summer 2016

May 10, 2016

This is a review of Big Lots (Living Colors) Wax Melts from Summer 2016. Like most of their wax melts, the throw is not very good. My favorites are the Strawberry Daiquiri and the Lime Mojito scents.

Caribbean Sunset
This one was not available originally, so I added this review on May 15, 2016. This smells like pineapple with a slight coconut note, probably what Pina Colada should have smelled like. But it has that fake tropical note that smells like a cheap car freshener. Melted, it smells pretty nice.
Throw:
2.50

Coastal Grass
This has barely any scent on cold sniff. When melted, I have to put my face about 6" from the warmer to smell anything at all. It's a bland waxy scent with a slightly grassy note and I think even a smidgen of neroli (orange blossom), which I love.
Throw:
0.00

Coconut Lime
This scent is from last year. It's the same scent as Pina Colada, just straight coconut. I don't smell any lime, or even pineapple. And I could barely smell it even with my nose right up to the warmer.
Throw:
1.00

Iced Berry Sangria
This smells like rich black raspberry and vanilla, a little on the fake side, but I really like it. It has a creamy quality, like maybe a black raspberry ice cream. It also has a very slight perfumey quality, like a rich raspberry scented skin cream. Melted, I think I also smell a little bit of grape.
Throw:
3.25

Island Margarita
Margarita is made with tequila and lime, but I'm not sure what I'm smelling here. It smells more like orange or plum or some combination of that. I don't think I smell lime or lemon. It's a nice scent, but it doesn't smell like a margarita.
Throw:
2.75

Island Nectar
This is a typical sour tropical fruit scent. It's a nice scent, and strong on cold sniff.
Throw:
3.75

Lime Mojito
This smells almost exactly like their Lemon Bars scent, which is one of my favorite lemon scents. I think there's a subtle difference, although it may in fact be the same scent.
Throw:
3.75

Paradise Reef
I really like this scent. It's a fresh bright watery apple floral note with a hint of perfume. There may also be a smidgen of another fruit in there, perhaps strawberry. It's kind of like apple blossom mixed with a sweet watery note, although I'd classify it as a watery scent rather than an apple scent.
Throw:
3.50

Peach Cassis
This scent is from last year. It smells like a fresh peach, but it's not very sweet. It's more like the outside of the peach rather than the sweet juicy inside. I'm not sure what cassis is, but I just smell peach. When melted, however, it took on a cat pee note so I had to turn it off.
Throw:
3.75

Peach Bellini
This is a sweeter, juicier peach than Peach Cassis. It's not very strong on cold sniff.
Throw:
0.00

Pina Colada
Pina Colada is made of rum, coconut, and pineapple. This smells like straight coconut with nothing else added, and it has a fake note. It actually has a milky quality though, like coconut milk, so it does smell pretty good.
Throw:
2.00

Sandy Beach
This is not a suntan oil scent like I was hoping, but a coconut scent. It also has a nutty vanilla note, but it's not a sweet scent. The coconut has that "fake" coconut air freshener vibe though. It's not very strong on cold sniff, so I don't have high hopes for the throw. All I smelled when I got up close was a fake coconut scent, none of the nutty vanilla notes.
Throw:
0.00

Seaside Escape
This is a fresh soapy watery scent with a hint of cologne and I think a smidgen of mint. I'd say mostly it smells like soap, but it's a nice pleasant scent. It's not that strong on cold sniff. I could smell "something" sweet in the room, but it was barely noticeable.
Throw:
1.00

Strawberry Daiquiri
This is a super sweet berry scent that smells like strawberry, raspberry and grape mixed together. It's a very nice, pleasant summer scent, even if it's not really an "authentic" berry scent.
Throw:
3.75
