Colonial Candle Wax Melt Reviews 2018

November 15, 2018

I gave up on Colonial Candle wax melt reviews last year because of poor throw, so I was pleasantly surprised that most of these scents threw quite well.

Amber & Oud
Description: A seasonal splash of citrus and fruits paired with warm spices and a hint of golden honey.
Notes: TOP: Ripe Strawberry, Red Delicious Apple, Lemon Sparkle – MIDDLE: Pineapple Juice, Golden Honey, Mandarin Rind – BOTTOM: Cinnamon Bark, Warm Clove, Bayberry
Amber is a warm perfumey note, and oud is a dark resinous woodsy scent. This scent is neither. This scent was obviously given the wrong name. It's a cinnamon apple scent with a warm clove note on cold sniff, and an apple cider scent with a little bit of a mulling spices note. Looking at the scent notes, they describe this scent, but not the scent name. It's a nice scent though, but definitely not Amber & Oud. In fact, Colonial Candle did have an Amber & Oud scent in 2015 that was closer to the actual scent name; it smelled like cedar, amber and baby powder.
Throw:
3.50

Cozy by the Fire
Notes: Smoke and wood with cashmere, amber, sandalwood and patchouli
I expected a smoky, woodsy or tobacco scent based on the name, but this smells like perfume that's a little old. But in a good way. There may also be a bit of vanilla and maybe oriental spices in this one, and possibly a smidgen of patchouli and a little bit of warmth from amber. Looking at the scent notes, no, there are definitely no smoky notes. It's a nice scent.
Throw:
3.50

Emerald Fir
Notes: A festive swirl of ground cinnamon, peppered clove, and darkened maple
This is a pine scent with a slightly waxy, sour, clay like note. I don't smell cinnamon, clove or maple. I don't like this scent.
Throw:
3.00

Fall Festival
Description: A woodland escape with notes of citrus and palm leaf blended with a sage and illuminate notes of amberwood, teak, and white cedar.
Notes: TOP: Iced Bergamot, Palm Leaf, Lemon – MIDDLE: Freesia, Rose, Sage – BOTTOM: Amberwood, Teak, White Cedar
This one is very weak so I can't figure out what I'm smelling. It's kind of like apple with a floral or perfumey note, and maybe a hint of cedar and possibly a fresh air note.
Throw:
2.50

Pink Peppercorn
Notes: Crushed cardamom seeds with oriental spices and cashmere woods
A nice black pepper scent with a clove note and maybe a smidgen of sandalwood. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on. It's a nice, unique scent.
Throw:
2.00

Raspberries and Cream
Notes: A delicious raspberry confection whipped with notes of plum, exotic passion flower, and warm amber
This smells like very sweet fruity candy made with strawberry, raspberry and plum, but I think it also has a hint of a warm perfumey note. Very nice scent.
Throw:
3.50

Sage Leaf & Honey
Notes: Fresh clary sage is balanced with nuances of lemon flower and tupelo honey with traces of Tuscan herbs and sheer woods.
This is a very difficult scent to describe. When melting, in the room it smells a little fresh and green, maybe slightly herbal but not a cologne or body wash type scent, maybe a smidgen of floral and light wood, slightly sweet. Up close I do detect the honey but it's almost like honey and tobacco. It's not a savory scent, which I would expect from sage, but that's a good thing. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect lemon at all.
Throw:
3.00

Sweet Black Plum
Notes: Sugared plum is celebrated with sparkling citrus, white clove and jasmine leaf
Very nice fruity scent of plum and maybe raspberry, but with a warm amber perfume note. It's similar to other plum-based perfumey scents like Scentsy Luna, but a little more fruity and not as perfumey. Looking at the notes, I don't smell citrus or cloves, but I do smell the jasmine, and that's the warm perfumey note that I thought was amber.
Throw:
3.50

Wisteria
Notes: Sparkling nuances of citrus mingle in the breeze with jasmine petals, wisteria, and pink magnolia blossoms
A fantastic sweet floral with maybe a hint of jasmine, orange blossom/neroli, and possibly a smidgen of honey and musk. Looking at the notes, I don't detect citrus. I love this scent, and it lasted all day (at least 10 hours).
Throw:
3.75

Yuletide Carol
Notes: Figs and blackberries blended with sweet berries and floral notes finished with warm floral and wood notes
Super sweet buttery sugar with a little bit of caramel and maybe a smidgen of a warm ambery perfume note, and possibly a tiny bit of strawberry or raspberry. Definitely not a holiday scent, but I love it. Fantastic scent!
Throw:
4.00
