This is a review of Goose Creek Candle Christmas Wax Melts from 2020. As usual, fantastic scents with great throw! Goose Creek Candle wax melts and candles can be found on their website at goosecreekcandle.com, and at some stores like Gabe's and Tuesday Morning.
This is an incredible scent that might easily be overlooked as just another vanilla cookie scent, but it's not. It's super sweet and buttery, like vanilla buttercream, but it's not exactly buttercream either. It smells like sweet sugary waxy sprinkles/jimmies that go on top of ice cream! And also like that sweet, artificial, waxy aroma of Entenmann's or convenience store pastries, but in the best way Actually, I think that "waxy" note is coconut. My description makes it sounds bad, but it's SO incredibly good, and very very unique.
This may be one of the absolutely best scents I've ever smelled!! It's so unique in that it smells like whipped cream, but not any whipped cream, specifically the spray can version of that super milky Reddi Wip. But it also has a bit of a nasal clearing creamy peppermint note as well, along with a sweet sugary vanilla. It's spectacular! Looking at the notes, I don't smell spearmint at all.
Notes: Top: Frosted Citrus, Hollyberry, Apple; Mid: Pine Cones, Fresh Cut Pine, Balsam Fir; Base: Canadian Fir Needles, Cedarwood, Cinnamon
A fantastic blend of cinnamon and pine, with a hint of apple maybe, and a smidgen of cedar perhaps. So like 55% cinnamon, 30% pine, 10% apple, and 5% cedar. And the pine is that nice woodsy, sprucey pine rather than a sour or harsh pine. Perfect holiday/winter scent!
Just like the scent name, this is indeed a classic Christmas tree pine scent, with nothing else added. It's a very very slightly smoky pine rather than a harsh, biting pine. This scent is great for blending with other scents to add a nice pine note.
This smells like sweet but tart berries, and not tart like cranberries, more like sweet berries with garden mint and/or a hint of eucalyptus added. It doesn't smell like cotton candy to me though. It's a nice, unusual scent, and I like it! It smells a bit like ScentSationals Raspberry Margarita, which I described as smelling like raspberry and eucalyptus.
A very nice sweet, fresh men's cologne scent with a hint of sweet cedar and a barely detectable smidgen of smokiness. It smells almost exactly like ScentSationals Dapper. Looking at the notes, I don't detect vanilla, pepper or lavender.
This smells like red velvet cupcakes with super sweet white frosting with a hint of marshmallow and that milk chocolate note from the red velvet. Actually, it smells like their Red Velvet Cupcake scent, but sweeter. Yummy scent! Looking at the notes, I don't detect any cream cheese type notes.
A super yummy sweet peppermint patty scent with rich chocolate and cool, creamy peppermint. It has a tiny bit of a milky quality that does indeed make it smell like a milkshake. Looking at the notes, there's the whipped milk. I don't smell honey. Fantastic scent!
Snow Covered Trees
Notes: Top: Winter Citrus, Falling Snow, Frozen Fir Needle; Mid: Frosted Eucalyptus, Pinecones, Siberian Fir; Base: Blue Spruce, Cool Musk
A nice smoky pine scent with a bit of nasal-clearing eucalyptus and maybe a smidgen of a woodsy, nutty note. Looking at the notes, the woodsy nuttiness is the pinecone. As for musk, I guess there could be just a smidgen of sweetness way in the background, but I don't smell any perfumey or cologne notes at all.
This is, well, cinnamon. It's much sweeter than most cinnamon scents, like there's a note of sugar crystals or something. And maybe a smidgen of cloves for warmth. Looking at the notes, I don't detect freesia (a floral), vanilla or cedarwood. I'm not a fan of straight cinnamon scents, but because this scent is super sweet and not quite as harsh or a "red hot candies" type cinnamon, I like it.
Despite the similar name and almost the same picture on the label, this is completely different from their old Christmas Tree Cutting scent (which smelled like spruce and dirt, in a good way). This smells like spearmint with a bit of eucalyptus and just a hint of pine, like Better Homes & Gardens Frosty Winter Nights but with the added eucalyptus and pine on cold sniff (although when melted, I don't smell the eucalyptus and pine, so it smells just like the Better Homes & Gardens scent). Incredible scent!
