Colonial Candle Wax Melt Reviews 2017
February 6, 2017
This may be my last review of Colonial Candle wax melts. Too many of their wax melts suffer from poor throw, which is a shame because their scents are rich and complex, and smell fantastic.
Macintosh apples, soft musk, sweet vanilla cream, and bourbon toffee
A buttery caramel note but not very sweet, with an apple note, a little bit of musky perfume, and maybe a slight note of light wood. When melted, I don't smell the wood, just a rich, sweet butterscotch caramel scent with a hint of apple, but it's not really a foodie scent because of the warm ambery musk note. Very nice scent.
Denim & Lace
Clean and calming florals combine with nuzzly musk, soft denim, and a delicate lace
A pleasant musky floral with an apple note, although I don't see apple in the scent notes.
Juicy red fruits, peony and rose petals, with sweet cream
I smell fruit but I'm not sure what kind, maybe apples and berries. And there's a hint of floral. It's a nice scent, and not overly sweet.
Fireside glow with hints of crackling woods and amber
This smells like sweet condensed milk or a very sweet milky vanilla with a little bit of marshmallow. I also do smell the warm ambery notes, but not any woodsy or smoky notes. I think I do smell a smidgen of graham cracker.
Glowing Jack O'Lanterns
Blood orange, soft florals, sandalwood, and warm musk
I smell orange with floral and maybe creamy vanilla in the background (although it's not an orange creamsicle type scent). Looking at the scent notes, there's the orange and floral. I don't smell sandalwood or musk, but those notes are probably why this isn't a foodie scent.
A sparkling burst of lime blended with fresh green notes of agave nectar and crisp herbaceous notes
This is a lime scent with a fresh watery note. It's not overly sweet (even with the agave nectar), probably due to the herbaceous notes. I guess it does smell like lemonade but made with limes (limes are slightly more bitter), but the herbaceous notes give it a slight lemongrass note, so it's not overly citrusy. I think it's more of a fresh "atmospheric" lime scent, like being outside on a warm breezy day in the middle of a lime grove.
Black pepper, rich amber, and warm woods
I smell tobacco primarily, with maybe a slight warm amber note and possibly a smidgen of leather. But it also has a waxy note that I don't care for.
Sugared Violet Petals
Peony with powdery violet
This smells almost exactly like ScentSationals Violet Sugar
, but sweeter. It's very strong on cold sniff, a fantastic sweet warm floral with a note of richness that almost gives it a foodie quality. It doesn't smell like violets, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't smell like peony either (which I believe has a rose note). It's almost like a "pink sugar" type scent, very sweet almost like cotton candy, but then there's a very warm kind of ambery note that makes it very rich. Fantastic scent, although it dissipated in under 2 hours.
Clove, cedar leaf, and pine with a burst of amber
I didn't like this scent at all. It has a strong sage note that reminds me of sausage or scrapple, but not in a good way because there's a little bit of sweetness that seems odd against the sage note, and a slightly moldy note in the background. I think I do smell clove and cedar, but those other notes ruin it.
Shimmering red berry with fresh-cut rose, silver driftwood, and English ivy
