This is a review of Sonoma wax melts from Kohl's for Summer 2017. The wax for these 3 new scents is soft and messy, not like Sonoma's regular wax which is harder. The hard wax is made by Empire Brands (the company that makes Tuscany Candle and Hallmark wax melts), and the new soft wax is made by MVP Group Intl. (the company that makes Mainstays wax melts for Walmart, Living Colors wax melts for Big Lots, and several others).
A blend of lavender and pink cyclamen with bursts of mandarin, pear and pineapple
This is quite weak on cold sniff. I smell lavender with a hint of fruit in the background and some other notes I can't figure out. It's a fresh airy type scent. Looking at the scent notes, there's the lavender and the fruits. I guess pink cyclamen is a type of flower although this is not a floral scent, and it's not sweet at all. Melted, there's a weird zesty, almost vinegary or lemon juice note in the background that doesn't mix well with the other notes, so I'm not crazy about this scent. Someone in our Facebook group said it reminded them of Noxzema, and I do detect a very faint Noxzema type note.
A relaxing, seaside-inspired scent of sea salt, driftwood, citrus and musk
This is a nice fresh, woodsy, slightly peppery scent. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect citrus, and it's not really a sweet scent.
An aromatic blend of sweet pear, crisp apple and sun-ripened banana warmed with creamy caramel and spice
This is a rich yummy scent that smells like pears and caramel. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect banana.
