ScentSationals Fall Wax Melt Reviews from Walmart - 2017

This is a review of the 8 new ScentSationals Fall 2021 Wax Melts from Walmart: Apple Pumpkin Donuts, Cookies n' Cream, Feelin' Cozy, Juicy, Moon Magic, Vanilla Pine, Take A Hike, Vanilla French Toast.

Please NOTE: Vanilla Pine will replace Sugar Pine in the fall 2021 Walmart lineup.

Apple Pumpkin Donuts
Golden-brown, freshly fried donuts topped with brown sugared apple and smooth pumpkin puree dusted with cinnamon-spiced crumbles
The notes are the same as the old ScentSationals Cider House Donuts (which just happened to come back a few weeks ago for a limited time with the Blast From The Past collection). I no longer have Cider House Donuts, so I can't sniff them side by side, but I described it as, "I can smell the donut dough with a bit of a sweet apple cider note, a hint of nutmeg that gives it a tiny bit of a pumpkiny note, a pinch of cinnamon, and powdered sugar." With Apple Pumpkin Donuts, however, I'm not getting a doughy note, and it might be sweeter and slightly more apple-y, with less nutmeg. This reminds me more of apple butter than donuts. Cider House Donuts was just "meh" for me, but I'm liking Apple Pumpkin Donuts. So it might be the same scent but the notes are tweaked slightly (which happens occasionally), or it's indeed a different scent and the notes are wrong.

Cookies n' Cream
Warm vanilla infuses buttery rich homemade cookie dough sweetened with sugar crystals
A toothachingly sweet vanilla buttercream scent with a bit of a milk chocolate note. It's fantastic and yummy. It might be the same as (or similar to) ScentSationals Cake Batter Ice Cream, which I described the same way (but I no longer have it to compare, although someone else said it's exactly the same). If I recall though, I think this scent might actually be sweeter (and Cake Batter Ice Cream was very sweet).

Feelin' Cozy
Deep tonalities of wild blackcurrant and cracked pink peppercorn embrace the luminosity of pure jasmine and dewy rose enhanced with soft cashmere warmth, blonde woods, and vanilla bourbon
I expected a warm, ambery, perfumey, slightly cashmere or linen or patchouli-ish type of scent based on the name and label (something similar to Better Homes & Gardens Soft Cashmere Amber), but this scent is totally different. I smell fruit first, although it's not entirely a fruity scent. It's not a berry, not pear... maybe something tropical, but not really pineapple either. I'm really getting a soft tropical vibe from this scent. It could be a combination of apple and wood, but not a true apple scent either. I do detect a hint of cashmere, as well as a tiny bit of vanilla. It's not perfumey at all, and although it's sweet, it's not overly sweet, and has a hint of a sour or tart note (and even a little bit smoky). So it's not sweet or fruity enough to be a fruity body cream type scent. It reminds me of (although it's not the same as) the Flannel side of the old Better Homes & Gardens Comfy & Cozy Duo, which was also the same scent as a very old Better Homes & Gardens scent called Southern Spanish Moss. The notes on the label (Warm Woods & Crisp Apple) show apple, but apple is not in the actual scent notes. I do get the apple and woods though. And there's the cashmere and vanilla. And I do get some of the currant as well, which is a fig-like soapy scent with a tiny bit of tartness (hence the bit of tartness in this scent), a hint of light wood, a smidgen of a perfumey note, and a smidgen of a berry note with hardly any sweetness. I don't get the peppercorn (which is often added to cologne type scents). I also don't detect jasmine or rose, although rose, maybe barely, way in the background? It's an unusual scent, and I kind of like it.

An alluring, fruity, floral harmony featuring top notes of sugared berry accord and orange, converge with the blooming core of violet, peony and cherry. A touch of elegance is added through bottom notes of sandalwood and leafy greens, helping to round out the fragrance.
This scent is incredible!! It's a soft, sweet, rich cherry fudge (but no chocolate) with vanilla, and possibly a hint of raspberry, and maybe even a smidgen of almond. It's not a harsh black cherry nor a super fruity or tart or citrusy type fruity scent. Nor is it really a bakery scent either (and no spices). And it's not entirely foodie because I think I'm detecting a hint of floral. It smells like what a combination of Yankee Candle Merry Cherry and Mainstays Cherry Pie might smell like (although it's not the same as either of those scents, but it's the same "type" of scent... a soft, sweet, yummy cherry!). I adore, Adore, ADORE this scent! Looking at the notes, there's the cherry, and the florals. I'm not getting orange at all (but that might be what I thought was raspberry). I'm not getting any woodsy or green notes either.

Moon Magic
Capturing the enveloping feeling of an exotic fairytale adventure by blending fun & familiar notes of well-loved fruits like peach, apple, & raspberry with the more alluring and slightly mysterious tonalities that come from a mixture of textural florals, rich amber, and creamy vanilla
On cold sniff I smell peach, raspberry, a hint of apple, vanilla, and a smidgen of soft florals. It's quite fruity, but the smidgen of floral gives it a bit of a fruit-scented body cream vibe. When melted, I definitely smell more of the peach, and I'm not a fan of peach (although it's not a "cat pee" type peach). The other notes help to temper the "peachiness", although there's still a tiny bit of tartness or sourness or maybe even a "cantaloupe-iness", but that probably is indeed the peach. It's not my favorite scent, but I like it, and I think it'll work well as a mixer for other fruity, floral, or even perfumey scents. The official notes are spot on.

Sugar Pine
Aromatic balsam, herbaceous greens and a splash of citrus glimmer with frosted spruce, mountain evergreen and the warmth of black vanilla bean
Please NOTE: Vanilla Pine will replace Sugar Pine in the fall 2021 Walmart lineup. Sugar Pine will NOT return to Walmart this season.

This is not a new ScentSationals scent, but I believe it's new to Walmart. It's been around for years, since at least 2014, at Meijer stores, came out in November 2018 as AmbiEscents Sugar Pine at Bed Bath & Beyond, as well as Oak & Rye brand at Kroger. It's pine with a little bit of a "biting" note, and maybe a smidgen of citrus, but it also has a hint of sweetness, and a smidgen of softness way in the background. Not really sweet like the name would suggest, but it's still very nice. Looking at the notes, there's the citrus and vanilla. This one might not be available at Walmart until the holiday scents start coming out around October-November.

Take A Hike
Frosty mist rolls over aquatic waters surrounded by woodland greens and wild herbs infused with aromatic pine needle, shimmers of spiced cinnamon and touches of dark woods
I get mostly eucalyptus from this scent, which by itself has a pine note, but I also smell more pine. It also has a bit of salty or even slightly smoky "richness" that eucalyptus scents don't have. And a hint of something herbal, like rosemary. And maybe a smidgen of black pepper. And a little bit of a fresh note in the background. It's not sweet at all. Looking at the notes, the only one I don't detect is cinnamon, although it could be way in the background, but not nearly enough to make this an actual cinnamony or even foodie type scent. It's an interesting scent, but on its own it's just too "much". However, I think it would be perfect mixed with pine, apple, wood, or fresh scents.

Vanilla French Toast
Indulge in sweet vanilla bean, a flourish of fresh roasted almonds and a sprinkle of cinnamon spice with a final swirl of whipped cream sugar
This scent is very familiar and I'm sure it's a dupe of something else. It smells like cinnamon French toast. It's a sweet bready scent that could indeed be French toast, but it could also be a cinnamon roll because it's quite cinnamony. Looking at the notes, there's the cinnamon, but it's more than a "sprinkle". I don't detect almond, and not really the vanilla either. It's not the same as Better Homes & Gardens Vanilla Caramel Spice. It might be the same as ScentSationals Coffee Cake Swirl or ScentSationals Praline Spice. I'm sniffing all 3 side by side and they smell the same to me. Or maybe Fusion Vanilla Churro Bites or ScentSationals Cinnamon Churro. A lot of cinnamon bakery scents are so similar that it's hard to tell the difference. It's a really nice scent, but it should be called "Cinnamon French toast".

Scents that have returned from previous years (shown with original release year) are: Autumn Air (2019), Autumn Valley (2020), Caramel Apple Spice (2018), Iridescent (2018), Pumpkin Apple Muffins (2016), Pumpkin Cider (2020), Pumpkin Cream & Marshmallow (2016) (originally called "Pumpkin Marshmallow Cream"), Pumpkin Spice (been around for many years).
