Michaels (Ashland) Wax Melt Reviews - December 2020

December 13, 2020

These 4 new Michaels Ashland wax melts (Eucalyptus & Sage, Grapefruit & Honey, Twilight & Currant, Peony & Rose, Vanilla Bean & Tonka) are quite nice, and throw better than most of the Michaels Ashland wax melts I've reviewed in the past 2 or so years.

These wax melts cost $4.99 each, which is much too expensive, but currently they have a 20% off discount and may have additional sales on their website and/or in their stores.

Sorry, no video review due to phone issues.

Eucalyptus & Sage
A nice combination of incense and herbal notes that smells a bit like Claire Burke's Original scent. I smell a hint of nag champa and patchouli, but although it's a bit sweet it's not as sweet as most incensey scents. It also has a hint of a grassy, herbal note and maybe just a smidgen of a savory herb although it's not a savory scent at all. It doesn't smell like eucalyptus at all (no pine or nasal clearing note), and the sage might be that smidgen of savoriness. It's a very nice "upscale" type scent.

Grapefruit & Honey
This is an orange scent rather than grapefruit, but it's a fantastic orange scent. It's rich and full-bodied, but not like a bakery richness. I don't detect any honey, and it's not overly sweet.

Twilight & Currant
A fantastic, extremely sweet, soapy watery scent (but not like body wash or cologne at all) with maybe a sweet floral like gardenia, maybe a hint of a warm, soft ambery perfumey note, and possibly a barely detectable smidgen of coconut that most people won't notice. It's a lovely high quality "upscale" type scent. I don't detect currant or any fruity notes. It's a little like a much sweeter, more perfumey, less coconutty version of ScentSationals Boardwalk.

Peony & Rose
This is definitely a rose scent, but just a tad brighter and crisper than most rose scents (which is probably the peony). It's not a perfumey or soapy rose. It's quite nice.

Vanilla Bean & Tonka
Plain generic vanilla, like a somewhat high quality vanilla scented candle or room spray. It has a tiny bit of a buttercream note, but not an authentic buttercream. It's still quite nice though.
