Michaels (Ashland) Decor Wax Melt Reviews

back of clamshell

This is a review of Michaels (Ashland) Decor Wax Melts. These came out one time, in August 2015, and never returned. They were part of a Michaels "Decor Scents" line which included candles, potpourri and oils. They were different from other Michaels wax melts in that they were in a round clamshell (similar to Goose Creek Candle clamshells). Every scent was fantastic, and I wish they would bring them back!

Bamboo Willow
This has a green, clean, slightly floral scent, maybe with a tiny hint of neroli to keep it classy.
Throw:
3.75

Gardenia
This is a true gardenia scent, with a hint of neroli to keep it classy and not overly floral. So it doesn't have that really sweet perfumey note.
Throw:
4.00

Juicy Apple
This smells almost exactly like ScentSationals Juicy Apple, with barely a subtle difference. I can almost smell the apple juice in this one. It's a sweet (but not overly sweet) apple with a slight pear note. Very nice.
Throw:
4.00

Seaside
This is what you would expect from a scent with this name, but it's kicked up a notch, making it different from other "ocean water" type scents. I can smell the salty ozony air and sweet water notes, but there's another element I can't put my finger on; this one might actually have a hint of neroli in it like some of the other Ashland Decor scents. A very classy fragrance.
Throw:
3.75

Spice Market
I expected "Spice Market" to smell like your typical cinnamon and nutmeg, more like a fall scent. But no, this is entirely different, and I don't think "Spice Market" is a good description. This is neroli (orange blossom or petitgrain). Yes, neroli. I've never seen this scent in wax melts before, or even candles for that matter. So I was excited to find this one! Neroli, orange blossom and petitgrain smell very similar, so I'm not entirely sure which one this is. It's a warm, relaxing, elegant scent that mixes well with other relaxing scents like lavender.
Throw:
4.00

Vanilla Spice
This is a typical sweet cinnamony fall scent, nothing really to differentiate it from other sweet fall scents, and not very strong on cold sniff.
Throw:
2.75

White Linen
This is of course a cottony laundry fragrance. Not much differentiates it from other "clean" type scents, although it seems like a higher quality version.
Throw:
4.00
