Colonial Candle Wax Melts

Colonial Candle Wax Melts

Read Reviews of Colonial Candle Wax Melts (previously called "Simmer Snaps"). Colonial Candle scents are very complex and rich, and the scents for the most part are fantastic. They are supposedly made with paraffin, even though the soft consistency seems to be more soy based.

This information no longer applies as their oval shaped wax melts were replaced with tall rectangular clamshells in 2018-2019:
They are hit or miss as far as throw. The throw might be affected by the hole in the top of the lid, which is probably so consumers can sniff the scent without having to open the package. But when scented wax is exposed to air (much like perfume), the scent dissipates. So if the wax has been sitting around for more than a few months, even if the scent is fairly strong on cold sniff, the throw may no longer be good. When you buy these, make sure to tape over the holes.

You can buy Colonial Candle Wax Melts at some gift and card shops and some discount stores like Gabe's and Ollie's, but the easiest way to get all their available scents is through the Colonial Candle website. Colonial Candle frequently has sales, often up to 50% off, and they often have discounted prices as well, so you could end up getting some of their 2.4 oz. scents that regular go for $4, for $2 or even $1!

As of 2018, Colonial only makes a handful of wax melt scents, most of which are fall and winter type scents. They no longer have the huge selection they used to.

Complex, rich, fantastic scents. Great sales! Great throw on their newer scents since 2018.
Very few scents available since 2018.
