Mainstays (Walmart) Christmas 2018 Wax Melt Reviews

November 19, 2018

This is a review of the Christmas 2018 Mainstays Wax Melts from Walmart (Country Holiday, Moonlit Spruce, and Very Berry Garland).

Country Holiday
On cold sniff I wasn't sure about this one because it has a slightly bitter "off" note, but I don't smell that at all when melted, and it smells great! It's a sweet vanilla buttercream with a hint of marshmallow (but it's not a bakery scent), with a warm rich amber or mahogany, and possibly bergamot that gives it a hint of a cologne note (although it's not really a cologne scent). I love it!
Throw:
4.00

Moonlit Spruce
This is a nice cologne scent that has just a smidgen of sweetness, unlike most cologne scents that tend to be quite sweet and even perfumey. It has a "dark" note that might be oud (a resinous tree sappy wood scent that sounds awful but smells incredible), and possibly a smidgen of leather. It also has a bland soapy note like Ivory soap (in a good way). I know that based on the scent name, there should be spruce or pine in this scent, but if it's in there, I don't smell it. This scent is very similar to ScentSationals Black Tux. I really like it, and the scent lasted all day, 12 hours, and probably would have gone longer if I hadn't turned off my warmer at night.
Throw:
4.00

Very Berry Garland
This is very nice, and very rich (almost nauseatingly so)! It smells like salty caramel buttered popcorn with an apple note. The scent lasted around 2.5 hours for me.
Throw:
3.50
