Making Scents in AZ Wax Melt Reviews

November 4, 2017

As of 2019, the Making Scents AZ website is gone, and their Facebook page has been inactive since late 2018.

This is a review of wax melts by Making Scents in AZ, a small candle and wax melt company in the White Mountains of Arizona that makes candles and wax melts using EcoSoya wax (100% soy, no blends, no paraffin). Their products are also free of hydrogenated oil. I found that the scents did not last long, around 2 or 3 hours. Making Scents in AZ's website is http://makingscentsinaz.com, and they are also on Facebook.

Black Cherry
Notes: Strong, fresh, black cherry scent; perfect for those who love cherries!
A nice strong black cherry scent. Black cherry is a harsh biting type cherry, but it smells great.

Cornucopia
Notes: Blend of pear, sweet pumpkin, vanilla, clove and sugar
Fantastic sweet apple scent with a raisin note and a hint of caramel, and maybe a smidgen of cinnamon. I also detect a sweet floral note like gardenia. Looking at the scent notes, I guess the apple and gardenia I'm smelling is actually pear.

Country Rain
Notes: Soft bouquet of rose and violet with a body of musk
I've smelled this scent before. It's a nice baby powder type floral with a sweet watery note, perfect for the bathroom.

Eucalyptus
Notes: A wonderful scent for relaxing and relieving stress
A eucalyptus scent that smells a little like Vicks VapoRub. Great for melting if you have a cold! Has a little bit of an industrial cleaner note.
Throw:
2.75

Fireside
Notes: Cozy combination of woods, spices and fresh eucalyptus (duplicate of Yankee Candle fragrance)
I smell a little bit of a Liquid Smoke note, mixed with tobacco and a hint of wood and maybe a smidgen of patchouli. It's a nice scent, but it has a little bit of a chemical note. I've never smelled the Yankee Candle version so I don't know how it compares.
Throw:

Gardenia
Notes: Fresh and earthy, and smells like a fresh blooming gardenia flower
This is a fantastic gardenia scent. It smells like a combination of orange blossom/neroli (one of my favorite scents) and gardenia, with a bit of a fresh soapy note. It's not an authentic floral scent, but more of a neroli/gardenia perfume, but in a good way. It's not overly perfumey though. I love this one!

Hawaiian Tropics
Notes: A light, fruity, tropical blend of orange, pineapple, strawberry and hints of lavender and jasmine
This is a tropical type scent but it has a bit of a bathroom cleaner note. I'm not a fan of this scent.
Throw:

Lemon Cake
Notes: Reminiscent of fresh, creamy, sweet and tangy lemon cake
A perfect lemon scent! A nice zesty lemon with sweet creamy vanilla. This is not as sweet as some other similar scents I've smelled, and it smells quite authentic. I love this one!
Throw:

Mahogany
Notes: Notes of fresh mahogany and blood orange, with essences of cognac on a base of bourbon vanilla, and sandalwood
I've smelled this scent before. It's a fantastic sweet pipe tobacco scent with a slight patchouli note and maybe a smidgen of maple and caramel. One of my favorite scents! Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell orange at all. And the maple and caramel are probably the cognac and bourbon vanilla.

Ocean Breeze
Notes: A beautiful light scent of roses with some strawberry and peach
A nice fresh soapy scent with a floral note, but it's not overly sweet or perfumey. It smells like a woman's shower gel or shampoo.
Throw:

Patchouli
Notes: Pungent aroma of patchouli leaves
A nice slightly sweet patchouli scent.
Throw:
1.50

Pumpkin
Notes: Pumpkin and spices with vanilla pudding undertones to accentuate the sweetness of the pumpkin aroma.
This is not a regular pumpkin scent, and it's different from their Pumpkin Pie Spice scent. It's much better, a super sweet rich caramel marshmallow scent with nutmeg and cinnamon. Fantastic and yummy!

Sage
Notes: A blend of sweet sage, lavender and orange with hints of fresh pine needles
A grassy soapy scent. It's a little sweet, not savory (which is what I would expect from a sage scent).
Throw:
3.75

White Cherry Blossom
Notes: A beautiful floral of cherry blossoms scent surrounded by fresh leafy greens
A nice powdery sweet floral with a smidgen of a fresh green note and maybe a barely detectable hint of fruit. It's not really a cherry blossom scent, more like orchid. Very nice scent, I really like it! The scent only lasted about a half hour.
Throw:
3.00

Winter Hideaway
Notes: A warm and cozy fragrance consisting of cypress, wintergreen and smoky vetiver, lavender, cedar wood and amber, with essence of frosted mint leaf and coriander
A lovely pine scent with a vanilla mint note. The pine is subtle, and the vanilla is just slightly sweet and a little soapy.
Throw:
