This is a review of Sonoma wax melts from Kohl's for Summer 2018. There are some nice spring and summery type scents in this collection.
Sweet honeysuckle, dewy greens and relaxing jasmine
A lovely honeysuckle type scent with a bit of an orange blossom/neroli note (one of my favorite scents). It's not really authentic, but more of a sweet soapy honeysuckle, but still smells fantastic. It's a dupe of their Honeysuckle scent from 2014, Hawaiian Honeysuckle from 2016, and of course Blooming Honeysuckle from 2017. So it's not actually a new scent.
Lavender leaves, fresh citrus and white birch
A lovely scent combining light sweet floral and salty lemon. There may also be a hint of lavender. It's a nice, fresh, cheerful scent. Looking at the scent notes, they're spot on, although I'm not sure what birch smells like (I don't detect any woodsy notes).
Lilac, jasmine and orange blossom
This smells like lilac scented soap, and I love it. I can also smell the extra sweetness of the jasmine and a tiny bit of the rich honeysuckle type scent of the orange blossom.
Pink Velvet Cupcake
Jasmine, sugared vanilla and citrus
This is the same scent as last year's Pink Velvet Cupcake, a sweet vanilla scent with a very slight salty peanut note, and maybe a smidgen of lemon and some kind of berry and just a barely detectable note of almond. It's similar to ScentSationals Pink Velvet. But that scent had slightly more tart berry and lemon notes, while Sonoma Pink Velvet Cupcake is sweeter, has a stronger vanilla note, and a very slight perfumey note. Looking at the scent notes, the slightly perfumey note is the jasmine. Last year's throw was mild, around a 2.5 out of 5.
Summer Berry Lemonade
A vibrant blend of lemonade and mixed berries
A fantastic blend of raspberries and tangy lemon. It might be the same scent as last year's Raspberry Lemonade, but I no longer have that one because the throw was weak. The notes for last year's Raspberry Lemonade were raspberries, blackberries and red currants with a touch of lemon, nectarine blossom and peach. Those notes could definitely describe this scent as well (although I don't smell peach).
Walk in the Park
Relaxing notes of eucalyptus, aloe and apple
I can't figure out the notes in this one. I smell fruit, maybe apple. And it also has a slightly clean soapy herbal note, as well as a slight peppery note. It's kind of green and natural, and just slightly sweet. Looking at the scent notes, there's the apple, and I guess the aloe is the fresh note, and maybe the eucalyptus is the peppery note? I don't actually smell eucalyptus though, which tends to smell a bit like pine. Melted, it smells like a fresh, very slightly fruity body wash. It's a nice pleasant scent.
Gingered apple, jasmine and cedarwood
A very nice, pleasant scent with apple and floral with a very slight perfumey note, and something else I can't figure out. It's sweet but not perfumey sweet. Looking at the scent notes, yes, I smell the cedar on cold sniff but not when melting.
