Kohl's Sonoma Christmas Wax Melt Reviews 2017

November 2, 2017

This is a review of Sonoma Christmas 2017 wax melts from Kohl's. This is Part 2 of 2 (see Part One). These are the softer wax melts manufactured by MVP Group Intl.

Falling Snow
Notes: Frosted peppermint, spun sugar and sweet vanilla
This is the same scent as Falling Snow from 2015. I said in 2015 that this is "pure mint, with just a hint of sweetness. It's not sweet enough to be a candy cane scent", but this one does smell slightly sweeter, but still not quite as sweet as a candy cane or mint candies, and no creaminess. It's peppermint, like the center of a peppermint patty. Also has a little bit of a sinus-clearing effect. A nice chilly scent that almost makes the room feel cold, this would be a great scent to melt on a hot summer day!

Frosted Woodland Pine
Notes: Pine, balsam fir and cool musk
There was a Woodland Pine in 2016, but this is a different scent. This is a very nice pine scent with a smoky note. It's not a biting pine. I don't smell musk or any perfumey notes. It has a blue spruce note to it, which gives it a bit of richness or depth.

Merry & Bright
Notes: Citrus, vanilla and musk
This is not a holiday scent. It's a fantastic super sweet marshmallowy vanilla fruity scent (raspberry or blackberry) with a sweet musky note. It's sweeter and more fruity and perfumey than Pink Sugar, and it's not a cotton candy scent either. I would describe it as raspberry vanilla marshmallow perfume. Looking at the scent notes, I'm surprised I don't see any fruit notes. I don't smell citrus at all (lemon, orange or grapefruit). I love this one!

Someone in the Facebook group asked if this is a dupe of last year's Snow Days. I sniffed both Snow Days and Merry & Bright side by side, and they're a bit similar but not the same. Merry & Bright has more of a marshmallowy perfume note and the fruit is less "provocative", if that makes sense, so it's more of a raspberry or cherry note than Snow Days. Snow Days is a deep rich warm sweet ambery blackberry scent, and smells a lot like ScentSationals Blackberry Cider, Goose Creek Blackberry Parfait, and Scentsy Luna.


Silent Night
Notes: Pine, sandalwood and musk
This scent has returned from 2016, and it's the same exact scent despite different notes (2016 notes: "Amber pairs with aromatic notes of pine and lavender layered on top of sweet sandalwood"). I smell pine first, with a smoky background and just a smidgen of sweetness which might be the lavender (although I don't think I smell lavender per se).

White Birch & Pomegranate
Notes: White birch, pomegranate and fir needle
This smells like cranberry and pine on cold sniff, but when melted it also has a slightly sour note that I don't care for. It's not a sweet scent at all, despite the cranberry (pomegranate).

Winter Blessings
Notes: Peppermint, buttercream and vanilla
This smells like a sweet peppermint vanilla cookie.
