This is a review of Goose Creek Candle Wax Melts from March 2019. A couple of these are Easter and Spring themed scents. And as usual, these Goose Creek wax melt scents are fantastic. 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 a fantastic fruity floral that smells like sweet rich strawberries mixed with a sweet but authentic floral (hyacinth I think, as it has a bit of an Easter vibe). It smells a lot like a H.E.B. exclusive scent called ScentSationals Mountain Laurel (which is the same as an old Better Homes and Gardens scent called Honeysuckle Berry Bliss), and also similar to Better Homes and Gardens Sun Washed Poppies (which is the same scent as an older Better Homes and Gardens scent called Sun-Kissed Tulips). But this scent is richer, sweeter, and slightly more strawberryish than those other scents (and I like this one the best). Looking at the notes, I'm surprised I don't see strawberries, but I guess it's the raspberry and "red berries" that I think are strawberries?
This smells kind of like maple with a smidgen of orange or lemon, and maybe a little bit of vanilla and caramel, and something else in the background I can't figure out. Looking at the notes, they're spot on, although I don't smell strawberry. OK, the note I couldn't figure out is coconut, although I really don't smell coconut per se. It's quite nice, although it does have a smidgen of a "burnt" quality when melted.
This scent does not smell like jelly beans to me, and that's perfectly okay, because jelly beans have a fake grapey fruity note. This scent smells like a super rich, zesty blackberry lemonade with a sweet, creamy, almost marshmallowy note. Looking at the notes, they're spot on, and I do smell a tiny bit of the blueberry. There was a ScentSationals scent called Blackberry Lemonade a few years ago, and although they're very similar, this scent is way better as the notes are stronger (especially the lemon) and richer. It's mouthwatering and absolutely fantastic!

This smells like pink sugar, but it's not as sweet and perfumey, and it has a more fruity note that might include apple and/or peach in addition to the usual raspberry that pink sugar scents have, as well as a floral note. Looking at the notes, I'm way off; there are no fruity notes in this one! But I definitely do smell fruit that makes this smell kind of like a rich, sweet peach or apple blossom scent. Melted, I definitely smell more of the fruity note, kind of like strawberry, and it smells a bit similar to the Breezy Tulips scent. I love this scent! And it's nothing like the old ScentSationals Love Letters (they only share the same name).
This is a fresh watery scent with a bland cucumber or aloe note, which I normally wouldn't like, but there's something else in there that keeps it interesting, coconut I think, and maybe a hint of a sweet tropical fruit. It has a tiny bit of bitterness, but not enough to detract from the scent. Looking at the notes, they're spot on. I think I even smell a tiny bit of the mandarin (orange). It's a very fresh, thirst quenching scent, and I like it more than I thought I would!
I can't figure out what I'm smelling, but it's nice. It's kind of like a light men's cologne scent with a hint of jasmine and a smidgen of lemon and maybe another fruit like peach. There may be a barely detectable smidgen of patchouli or cedar way in the background. Looking at the notes, no patchouli or cedar, but it's probably the vanilla woods I'm detecting. I don't smell mocha at all.
