This is a review of Hanna's Candle wax melts from Easter (Spring) 2019, "Brilliant & Bright" Collection. They can be found on the Hanna's Candle (CandleMart) website. These new Easter/Spring 2019 wax melts are fantastic, and some of the first new scents that Hanna's Candle has come out with in over a year.
Berries & Blooms
Strawberry, Raspberry, Pink Peony, Vanilla, and Spun Sugar
This might be one of the most incredible scents I've ever smelled! Just like the scent name, it's a combination of berries (definitely strawberry, and maybe a hint of raspberry?) and blooms (honeysuckle?). But it's much more complex than that. It's super rich, super sweet strawberry, like strawberry preserves or thick sweet strawberry syrup that you drizzle over ice cream. But it's not an entirely foodie scent either, because there's also a strong note of a rich, sweet, warm floral like honeysuckle. Although it's sweet, it's not musky or perfumey. And the scent lasted all day (at least 8 or 10 hours).
Gardenia and Mimosa blend with Orange Flower, Tuberose, Lush Violet, and Exotic Woods
This is a floral scent but it's also very, very bitter. I thought it might be the same as their Peony & Rose Bouquet scent, which I recall as also being very bitter, but the notes are different. I'm not a fan of this scent at all, but like the Peony & Rose Bouquet, I think I'm in the minority and most people seem to really like it. I don't smell any of those scent notes.
Red Berries, Lychee, Jasmine, Cherry Blossom, Freesia, Peony, Lavender, Amber, and Musk
This is a bit different from cherry blossom scents I usually smell, which are more soft and powdery. This smells a bit like a girly perfume, very sweet with a bit of a Pink Sugar note. I do smell a little musk, but also a fruity note (more strawberry than cherry) and a very sweet floral like gardenia or jasmine, and maybe a smidgen of vanilla or marshmallow that gives it a tiny bit of a cotton candy vibe. I love it! It's completely different from their Wild Cherry Blossom scent.
Cottontails & Clover
Orange Blossom, Geranium, Bois de Rose, Coconut, and Sea Salt
I really like this scent. It smells a little like Coppertone suntan oil, but not as much as other Coppertone type scents I've smelled. It also has a bitter note, but not enough to be annoying. Looking at the notes, I think I do detect a smidgen of coconut, and the orange blossom is what gives it that Coppertone type note. The geranium might be the bitterness. It's similar to their Starry Night, Benditaroma Strength, and Sandy Beach scents, but not the same.
Plumeria, Freesia, Cyclamen, Lily of the Valley, Violet, Sandalwood, and Musk
A pleasant soft plumeria type floral with sweet watery notes, maybe a hint of vanilla or marshmallow, and a smidgen of musk. It's not a perfumey scent, and it's not even much of a floral as it has that slightly marshmallowy note. It's very nice. It's the same as their Benditaroma Protection scent.
Misty Fresh Ozone, Citrus, Sweet Red Apple, Tart Green Apple, Subtle Wood, and Musk
I smell mostly apple, with a hint of something else, maybe a fresh air note and caramel? It has a tiny bit of a soapy note, and possibly a smidgen of floral although it's not perfumey or even overly sweet. It's a very nice, pleasant scent.
