Kohl's Sonoma Wax Melt Reviews - Spring 2020

December 18, 2019

This is a review of Sonoma wax melts from Kohl's for Spring 2020.

Last year the spring scents came out in March. This year they've come out in December! 7 (or maybe 6) of the Spring 2020 scents are "new" scents, while 10 are scents from previous years.

Blooming Orchard
Notes: Pear, magnolia, sandalwood
A fruity floral with a candy note. I smell pear first, and maybe a smidgen of pineapple and a light woodsy note way in the background. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on. I really like this scent, but I think I've smelled it before. Yep, sure enough, it's quite similar to ScentSationals Celebration Time, but it's not the same scent. They're both pear with a smidgen of light wood in the background, but Blooming Orchard has a stronger floral note that Celebration Time doesn't have, and Celebration Time doesn't have that hint of a candy note. Oh wait, it also smells like the Pear Blossom side of ScentSationals Take Me to Paris duo, although that scent has a stronger floral note and is not as sweet, with no candy note.

Blue Citron
Notes: Sugared citrus, tropical fruits, sandalwood
This might be an older scent that has returned (older label), but I've never seen it before. It's a nice citrusy orange scent with a super sweet hard candy note and a tiny bit of a tropical note way in the background. Very nice!
Throw:
5.00

Cactus Rose
Notes: Wild freesia, orange, white cedarwood
This smells like magnolia, which is a fresh watery rose type scent with salty, soapy, and very slightly zesty notes. It's a little sweet but not perfumey or flowery. I really like it.
Throw:
3.50

Coastal Capri
Notes: Herbal, evergreen, marine
A savory herbal scent with a strong black pepper note and fresh green garden herbs. It's not sweet at all, and it has a tiny bit of zestiness (but no lemony notes). It may also have a barely detectable smidgen of eucalyptus although it doesn't have that sinus clearing effect. It's nice and very different, but I'm not sure if I want my house smelling like a salad. Looking at the scent notes, evergreen and eucalyptus are kind of similar.
Throw:
3.50

Coastal Sunset
Notes: Sun-kissed orange, vanilla, cedarwood
I smell cedar with lavender and maybe a hint of citrus and a soapy note (but it's not a body wash type scent). It smells similar to BBW Lavender Vanilla, but it's not the same. Looking at the notes, there's the cedar, but I think that should be the first note. I'm surprised I don't see lavender. This smells a little bit like a lavender based cleaner, a little bit like Fabuloso but different. I really like it.
Throw:
4.00

Garden of Flowers
Notes: Apple, jasmine, gardenia
This is a floral scent with maybe rose and some other type of flower, but it also has a bitter note I don't care for. I'm very sensitive to even the slighest amount of bitterness in a scent, so I think most people won't notice or care. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell apple at all. And I do smell the jasmine but I don't know where that bitter note is coming from. That's probably why I thought it was rose because that note sometimes has a little bit of bitterness.
Throw:
5.00

Passion Fruit Punch
Notes: Kiwi, passionfruit, mango
This smells like apple and/or pear with a tropical fruit note that might include pineapple, and a sweet hard candy note. It's just "okay" for me as I'm not a fan of pineapple and the pineapple mixed with the pear doesn't smell good to me.
Throw:
4.00
