Chesapeake Bay Wax Melt Reviews 2018
December 2, 2018
This is a review of Chesapeake Bay wax melts from Target, from 2018. The price has decreased from $3.99 to $2.99, and they've changed their packaging to a better clamshell format; the old packaging was flimsy and hard to close.
I smell pine with a slightly soapy balsam note as well as a slight orange note. I've always liked the combination of pine and orange, so I really like this scent. The scent started dissipating within 2 or 2.5 hours.
I really like this scent. It smells like jasmine scented soap. And it's quite soapy, almost like a bland Ivory soap, but with a sweet jasmine perfume note. This is one of those odd scents that's subtle rather than strong, but yet throws very well. So I can smell it downstairs while it's melting upstairs, but just a whiff of it here and there. It's very nice! I reviewed this in 2015
and throw was only 1.50 out of 5, but that was when they used different packaging that was very flimsy and difficult to close properly, so it probably lost its throw just sitting on the shelf.
Oats & Honey
Sweet honey and rustic oats
I can't figure out what I'm smelling. I do smell the honey, but the main note is almond perhaps, although it's not as "almond-y" as other almond scents I've smelled. It's quite sweet and has a little bit of a perfumey note. It's not one of my favorite scents, but I kind of like it.
Sea Salt Vanilla
Vanilla and sea salt with notes of ocean air and musk
A fresh watery scent with a little bit of a vanilla note, and a hint of musk that gives it a bit of a perfumey quality. There may also be a tiny bit of light wood in the background. When melted, I also detect a tiny bit of a slightly bitter metallic note that I also smelled in the Silver Bells scent. It's a nice scent, but I don't care for the bitter note.
A fantastic tobacco-ey scent with light wood note and maybe a hint of patchouli, Very nice!
A very nice red currant scent (red currant is a fig-like soapy scent) with a hint of a perfumey note and a smidgen of red berry. It also has some balsam in it (a soft pine note with a soapy note and a hint of sweetness). Very nice scent! But the scent started dissipating within 2 or 2.5 hours.
Under The Tree Trio
Under The Tree
I smell pine, eucalyptus, a woodsy note, and something else I can't put my finger on, maybe a barely detectable smidgen of patchouli or tobacco. It's not really a pine/Christmas tree scent though, but I like it.
A sweet slightly perfumey scent with maybe a hint of vanilla and smidgen of peppermint. It has a little bit of a weird metallic note that I don't care for, but it's still a nice scent.
See review above.
