Febreze One Wax Melt Reviews
August 2018 & 2019
This is a review of the Febreze One wax melts scents Lavender & Eucalyptus, Lemongrass & Ginger, Peppermint & Rosemary. These Febreze One wax melts are made with soy wax, essential oils and all natural ingredients, with no artificial perfumes or dyes.
All scents are very strong on cold sniff, especially the peppermint. But the Lemongrass & Ginger and Peppermint & Rosemary scents don't throw as well as I expected they would; in fact, I had better luck putting a cube of the peppermint scent in a dish without even melting it. And both scents dissipated within 1.5 to 2 hours. Lavender & Eucalyptus, however, performed much better (see below).
These melts are $4.95 each, for 2.75 oz. Which is quite pricey, and more than their other Febreze scents which are usually $2.97 (or $3.97 for the Unstopables).
Febreze has come out with a wax warmer specifically for their melts. The new warmer is only 8.5 watts, which means it doesn't get very warm. Most wax warmers are 20 to 24 watts (I used a 20 watt Glade warmer to melt these). Soft wax and essential oils tend to prefer a lower melting temperature, which is why the Febreze warmer might be better for these melts. I don't have the new Febreze warmer, nor will I buy a separate warmer just for these melts.
Lavender & Eucalyptus
This scent came out in July 2019 and I reviewed it 7/29/19 (so no video). It smells incredible! It's pure, natural lavender, like when you rub the lavender plant leaves between your fingers. It's not overly medicinal either, like some authentic lavender scents can be, despite the eucalyptus note. I don't actually smell the eucalyptus (which would give it a little bit of a medicinal pine note), but it does have a strong sinus clearing effect when melting. And the scent lasted at least 6 hours. So this is my favorite scent of the three Febreze One wax melts.
Lemongrass & Ginger
This smells like you've just walked into an expensive spa. It's a very natural essential oil scent, but it's hard to describe. I smell the lemongrass, but it's more "warm" and soapy and less lemony (not very lemony at all, actually) than other lemongrass scents I've smelled. And I think I do detect ginger in the background, so that might be the warm soapy note. It's not sweet at all. I really like this one, but the scent started dissipating within 1 hour and was gone within 2 hours.
Peppermint & Rosemary
This scent has real peppermint oil in it, and has a strong sinus clearing effect. It's just a little sweet, and it also has a little bit of an herbal/spa note, which is probably the rosemary. I don't smell rosemary per se, which is a savory herb with undertones of pine and lemon. Although there might be a smidgen of a lemongrass type note in the background which gives this scent the herbal/spa quality. This scent dissipated within 1.5 hour, and within 2 hours it was gone. Although I only got a medium throw from this scent, other people have said they got a bold throw (5 out of 5).
