Hanna's Candle (Candlemart) Wax Melt Reviews 2018
October 18, 2018
This is a review of Hanna's Candle (Candlemart) Wax Melts from 2018. Many of these are scents that were previously only available in their Aromabeads Singles melts.
These can be found on the Hanna's Candle (Candlemart) website at https://candlemart.com.
Cantaloupe, green apple, cucumber, muguet, freesia, and white musk
Just like the scent name, I smell melon and apple. The melon smells like cantaloupe but it might also include watermelon. No watermelon in the scent notes, but the muguet, freesia and musk make it quite sweet, like a watermelon candy. I do smell the green watery crispness of the cucumber too. And of course the apple. It's a pleasant scent.
Sweet honeysuckle and a touch of lemon blends with orange blossom, yellow freesia, muguet, and gardenia; sweet musk delivers a soothing finish
A lovely sweet floral scent of honeysuckle and orange blossom/neroli (one of my favorite scents). Fantastic! Looking at the notes, I don't smell lemon at all.
Eucalyptus leaves, bright magenta thyme, sage, marjoram, rosemary, French lavender, and wild mint
This smells a lot like ScentSationals Zen
, that relaxing soapy, clean, very slightly minty scent. But like Zen, I don't smell eucalyptus, which has a strong pine note. I don't really smell the other herbs either, since this is not a savory scent. Just a bit of the mint. Oh, lavender, yes I think I do smell that. This scent is slightly sweet, so that must be from the lavender too.
Ground Spice & Cinnamon
A strong cinnamon bark blend is followed by a warm wood and sweet amber
This is a cinnamon candy scent. Looking at the notes, I don't detect wood or amber (amber would give it a warm perfumey note). It has a bit of that "red hot" candy note, but it also has a very slight powdery note which might actually be the amber.
Toasted coconut and warm honey fuses with hazelnut, sweet almonds and cinnamon at the heart of the scrumptious blend. Vanilla cream, brown sugar and maple entice us with their sweet and sticky tones.
A yummy sweet buttery nutty scent. I don't really smell coffee, or it may be way in the background. Looking at the notes, no coffee! I don't smell coconut, honey or cinnamon, but I do smell maple.
Mountain Air PureFresh Bathroom Neutralizing
A crisp fresh blend of ozone, herbs, florals and musk
On cold sniff this smells like a nice smelling bar of soap. Melted, it's definitely a laundry scent, but a nice soapy laundry scent, not a harsh detergent scent but also not a flowery fabric softener scent. It's also not overly sweet, but more soapy, with a bit of an Ivory soap note. I really like it.
Peony & Rose Bouquet
This fresh floral fragrance blends notes of pink peony, rose, orange flower and blushing hibiscus with effervescent citrus and berry nuances; warm woods and musk provide a perfect warming finish
This is the same as Aldi Peony & Rose Bouquet
from January 2018. It smells like old soap, which sometimes smells quite good. But it's very bitter and fake and smells kind of "burnt" to me. It doesn't smell like peony or rose to me at all. However, I think I'm in the minority, since most people love this scent. Looking at the scent notes, it might be the effervescent citrus that gives it the bitter note, although I don't smell any fizziness or citrus at all.
Harvest pumpkin interwoven with delectable notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pure vanilla
A rich pumpkin pie scent with a buttery cinnamon note, like what a cinnamon bun would smell like if it had pumpkin pie filling and a rich buttery pie crust
Gardenia, lime, ozone, fruity coconut, sweet praline, and fresh muguet
I love this scent! It smells like Coppertone Suntan oil mixed with a hint of coconut and maybe a smidgen of sweet tropical nectar. It also has a tiny bit of a yummy note, like maybe a smidgen of caramel. Looking at the notes, the yumminess is from the praline. I don't smell lime.
Driftwood and sea kelp, tropical fruits, and a sweet hint of caramel
I thought this was the same as Aldi South Seas
from January 2018, but I don't think it is. This is a fresh watery scent with a bitter note and maybe a smidgen of a peppery note. It's more bitter than the Aldi version.
Ginger, lemon zest, fresh juicy peach, apricot marmalade, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of buttery crust
A nice milky, creamy peach. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect ginger or spices, but there is a smidgen of a buttery bakery note. Not fake, harsh, or overly sweet. This one should be called "Peaches & Cream"!
A bright blue sky reflected in shimmering waters where delicate water lilies float with violet, rose and freesia blossoms before drifting into the warmth of sun-kissed driftwood, sheer musks, and white amber crystals
This is the same scent as Mainstays Peaceful Waters
from Walmart. It's a sweet watery scent with a soft warm ambery note and a hint of musk. It has a little bit of a soapy note, and it's not a perfumey scent. But it also has a richness and a bit of a foodie note, maybe vanilla or even caramel, that's a tiny bit nauseating and just "too much" when mixed with the freesia. Looking at the notes, I don't see anything foodie.
Fruity notes of sweet mango and fresh papaya swirl with juicy accents of fuzzy peach and ripe guava infused with sweet peach blossom, apricot flower, island jasmine, and golden ylang ylang
This smells like an authentic juicy peach, with a hint of sweet guava. It's a fantastic scent, and I believe it's also the same scent as Mainstays Peach & Mango
from Walmart (although MVP Group Intl. makes most of the Mainstays wax melts, Hanna's Candle does make some scents).
