ScentSationals Fall 2023 Wax Melts Reviews
August 12, 2023
This is a review of the 3 new ScentSationals wax melts from Walmart for Fall 2023: Dream Cloud, Leaves & Lattes, Sweet Berry Cider.
ScentSationals scents that have returned from previous years are: Caramel Apple Spice, Cinnamon Apples, Fallen Leaves, Pumpkin Cream & Marshmallow, Pumpkin Spice, Salted Caramel Buttercream, Vanilla Pine, and Warm Apple Pie
Jeweled bergamot and pear blossom drift over creamy vanilla orchid, white jasmine, and blushed heliotrope wrapped in sugared praline sweetness, ambered musk, and tender, mossy woods
I'm getting a little bit of fruit, maybe blackberry, as well as a hint of lavender, milky vanilla, and possibly a smidgen of caramel with a barely detectable nutty note perhaps. I'm also getting a little bit of bergamot, which gives scents a crisp, citrusy note that's often used in cologne scents, but this is not a cologne type scent, although it does have a hint of that note which keeps it from being strictly a fruity or foodie scent. It's sweet but not overly sweet. I really like it! Looking at the notes, the caramel and nutty notes I barely detect are the praline, and what I thought was blackberry is pear. I'm surprised I don't see lavender in the notes, because I really smell lavender.
Leaves & Lattes
Smoked mahogany melds with warm vanilla lattes, rich pumpkin spice, and dark chocolate accented with hints of golden apple, burnished amber, and ethereal musk
Smoky wood, mahogany, a bit of cinnamon, and a hint of apple, kind of like smoked pumpkin pie (if that existed) with a bit of apple. It's not like any other scent I've smelled. It's quite nice. Looking at the notes, I'm not getting any chocolate or musk. Also, there are no coffee ("latte") or leaves type notes in this scent.
Sweet Berry Cider
This refreshing fragrance will quench any thirst. Juicy tangerine, apple cider, golden raspberry and sparkling cranberry blend with autumn spices and cinnamon for a seasonal experience. Brown sugar and sweet musk add a modern energy.
This smells exactly like you'd expect based on the scent name. On cold sniff it smells like apple juice with a bit of raspberry and maybe strawberry, as well as a hint of apple cider spices. But when melted, it smells more like sweet cranberry with a bit of apple cider spices. It's quite sweet and smells great! Looking at the notes, I'm not getting orange (tangerine).
