Michaels (Ashland) Wax Melt Reviews - Spring 2017

January 29, 2017

This is a review of Michaels (Ashland) Wax Melt Reviews for Spring 2017. I was underwhelmed by many of these, and in general the throw was not very good.

Apple Trio
Spiced Apple
The picture shows red apples with sticks of cinnamon, but I don't smell cinnamon in this one, or if it's there it's very subtle. It smells a lot like the green apples scent, but this one has a very slight caramel note and a smidgen of a fake apple note. Very nice scent!
Throw:
4.00

Apple Bounty
Sweet apple without any spices or caramel or cider notes. It's kind of authentic, but also has a bit of a candy sweetness as well. It smells almost exactly like the red apple scent. Another very nice scent.
Throw:
4.00

Apple Golden
This one smells like sweet apple juice with a hint of spice, or a very light apple cider.
Throw:
3.50

At The Cafe Trio
This is my favorite trio of the Spring 2017 line. Every scent is fantastic, and my reviews don't do them justice.
Cinnamon Shortbread
A sweet roll with buttery and gooey cinnamon. There's no coffee in this one.
Throw:
3.75

Chocolate Croissant
I smell chocolate with a bready note. I don't think this has coffee in it.
Throw:
3.25

Caramel Latte
A rich creamy caramel coffee scent.
Throw:
4.00

Berry Citrus Trio
I don't know if these are the same scents from the Berry Citrus Trio of Spring 2016.
Cherimoya
Cherimoya fruit tastes like banana, coconut, strawberry, mango, and pineapple). This is a slightly tropical succulent berry scent.
Throw:
4.00

Fresh Strawberry
This is a creamy candy-like strawberry scent like ice cream or scented lipstick or strawberry with a girly "pink sugar" or marshmallow note.
Throw:
3.50

Pomegranate Lime
This one is not strong on cold sniff, but I do smell berries with a lime note. When melted, it smells like a combination of orange and lime, like an orange/lime cream soda but without the fizziness.
Throw:
3.00

Cucumber Mint
I can barely smell anything on cold sniff. I think I do smell cucumber and a hint of mint, but it's just too weak to tell. Melted, it's a fresh herbal scent but I can't figure out the notes.
Throw:
2.00

Daisy Chain
A sunny summery floral.
Throw:
2.50

Evening Petals Trio
Violet Waters
A nice perfumey floral with a little bit of warmth. It kind of smells like violets.
Throw:
3.75

Cashmere Plum
This smells similar to the light purple scent, but sweeter and warmer. It's similar to Scentsy Luna.
Throw:
3.25

Evening Orchid
Another nice perfumey floral but different from the other two, smells a bit like an iris flower. This one has a raw wood note. Very nice scent.
Throw:
2.25

Mandarin Teak
This is the most interesting scent out of all the new spring scents. It's a creamy orange with a woodsy note, and some other notes that I can't identify that help to temper the orange and wood notes so that they're not too strong. This might be my favorite scent of the new Spring Collection.
Throw:
3.75

Pink Sea Salt
I expected this to be similar to ScentSationals Himalayan Pink Salt, but it's not. It's a fresh pleasant watery floral, not too sweet, with maybe a smidgen of saltiness. It smells like shower gel. Melted, it smelled clean, like someone just got out of the shower. It's a perfect scent for a bathroom.
Throw:
2.25

Sea Air Trio
Marine Water
A typical fresh sweet slightly salty oceany type scent.
Throw:
2.00

Aqua Mineral
I can't tell what this is since it's very weak on cold sniff. Another fresh watery scent I think?
Throw:
1.50

Ocean Peony
A fresh watery floral scent
Throw:
2.00

Vanilla Trio
This is the same Vanilla Trio from Spring 2016.
Vanilla Bean
A nice sweet vanilla with a buttercream note
Throw:
3.25

Vanilla Cream
I thought this was going to be a buttercream scent based on the picture, but it smells more like a warm vanilla cookie
Throw:
3.75

Creamy Vanilla Coconut
This is a typical fake coconut scent, like a cheap coconut air freshener. But I think it's combined with a little bit of vanilla so it's not really too bad.
Throw:
2.50

Weekend Bliss
A fresh watery scent with a sweet warm ambery note and a touch of floral. This has a bit of a candy note too. It smells a little bit like Scentsy Luna.
Throw:
2.50

Wild Honeysuckle
This smells like a pleasant honeysuckle scented soap, and it's not overly sweet.
Throw:
3.75
