Scentsy Bars Wax Melt Reviews - June 2017

June 18, 2017

This is a review of Scentsy Bar Wax Melts from June 2017. These scents may be new and current, old and discontinued, or "Bring Back My Bar" scents.

Banana Berry
Notes: Slightly tart and definitely juicy red strawberries jumbled with yellow bananas and luscious Bavarian cream.
On cold sniff I smell bananas and berries mixed together (strawberry I think), but mostly the banana. It's a fake banana scent, not authentic, which is okay because it smells great, like sweet banana berry candy. There might also be vanilla in this one as it has a creamy, rich note. Looking at the scent notes, there's the cream. I didn't include this in my video review since I didn't have it at the time. When melted, I couldn't even smell it with my nose an inch away from the warmer. Maybe I got an old one.

Blue Christmas
Notes: Fresh fir needles in aromatic orange essence, with cloves and cinnamon.
A subtle blue spruce scent, not a biting pine scent. I detect a barely noticeable smidgen of cinnamon in the background. I don't smell any orange although there may be a smidgen of a pomander note. This scent has kind of a salty note that makes it smell a little like Play-Doh, or a sage-y note that smells a little like sausage spice. I'm not crazy about it.

Cambridge
Notes: Sweet lemon and pine needles mixed with an intriguing dash of vetiver.
I smell vanilla and baby powder and oriental perfume spices and a little bit of men's cologne. It's a very nice, classy scent. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell any pine in this at all, not a smidgen. If I try really hard maybe I might detect lemon but if I didn't know it was in the scent notes I wouldn't. Vetiver is a common note in men's cologne, so that makes sense.

Casting Spells
Notes: A bewitching blend of apple drizzle, roasted pears and cinnamon bark.
This is a caramely pear scent with another note I can't figure out, almost like a woodsy clove note in the background. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell cinnamon at all. This is very similar to Scentsy Caramel Pear Crisp, but not exactly the same. It's very rich but almost has a slightly burnt quality.
Throw:
3.75

Cherry Vanilla
Notes: Candied cherry and sugared almonds folded into velvety white chocolate ice cream.
I didn't include this in my video review since I didn't have it at the time. Fantastic scent! It smells like maraschino cherry scented men's cologne, with vanilla for richness and maybe amber because it's a warm scent. It's not actually a men's cologne scent, but it has that sweet alcohol note from men's cologne, so maybe more like a perfume scent. It's not a foodie scent at all. Looking at the scent notes, the richness is probably from the white chocolate, although I don't detect chocolate notes in this at all. I also don't smell almond. After a few hours, it seemed like the alcohol note got stronger and it started smelling a bit like rubbing alcohol and got annoying.

Clean Breeze
Notes: White florals with a touch of spring; this is the scent of fresh, clean laundry.
A sweet floral fabric softener or dryer sheet type scent. It's not a harsh laundry detergent scent. Very nice and fresh!
Throw:

Enchanted Mist
Notes: Rose petals, sweet candy apples, and jasmine.
Pleasant fresh air floral with maybe a smidgen of apple, like an apple blossom. Looking at the scent notes, I don't think I smell rose.
Throw:
2.75

Fuzzy Blanket
Notes: Lavender, sandalwood, and sweet honeysuckle.
I smell lavender first, and maybe a floral note, but there's some other note I can't figure out, maybe some kind of wood? I guess the floral is honeysuckle but it doesn't smell like honeysuckle to me on cold sniff. But melted, the floral is sweeter.
Throw:
3.75

Ivy & Water Lily
Notes: Mandarin zest, rain-kissed jasmine and sheer amber beneath fresh dew drops.
This is a lovely fresh floral scent with a smidgen of lemon that makes it smell like authentic flower petals. It's not overly sweet. Looking at the scent notes I see mandarin, which is orange. I don't smell orange at all, although it might be the lemon I detect.
Throw:

Lavender & White Balsam
Notes: Lavender freshened by wintry white balsam and crisp amber.
Fantastic scent! I smell lavender first, then a slightly smoky spruce (not a biting pine note).
Throw:
4.50

Lemon Sorbet
Notes: Fresh-cut lemon and grapefruit zest sweetened by sugarcane.
A sweet lemon with a kick, this one has that biting "fake" lemon note, but in a good way, since that's the kind of lemon you smell in lemon candies, lemon sorbet, etc. It's a bright, fresh sweet lemon scent. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell grapefruit but that's probably the biting almost bitter note I'm detecting.
Throw:
3.25

Mystic Magnolia
Notes: Creamy lemony vanilla with sweet and spicy rosewood is brought together with smooth amber and fresh herbal green leaves.
A floral but not too sweet, actually has a bitter note that makes it smell authentic. But also smells a little like a men's body wash, so it's kind of a "masculine" floral. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell lemon, but  real magnolia petals do have a slightly lemony note.
Throw:
3.75

Rio Beach
Notes: The scent of sun, surf, sand and samba – coconut milk, tropical fruit, and tonka bean.
This smells like buttery coconut vanilla, but not really a foodie scent as there's another note in there I can't figure out, maybe sandalwood or a smidgen of baby powder or floral, and maybe even a slightly nutty note. Looking at the scent notes, there's the coconut milk and tonka bean (a type of vanilla). I don't really smell fruit, although that's probably the other note I couldn't figure out. It's not a typical tropical scent.
Throw:
4.00

Route 66
Notes: An exhilarating breeze of citrus, herbs, and musk.
This smells like an outdoorsy men's body wash, natural and a little spicy. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell citrus.
Throw:
3.00

Strawberry Swirl
Notes: Blissfully sweet and creamy, Strawberry Swirl whips together frozen strawberry, frothy milk and vanilla.
This is the richest, sweetest, creamiest strawberry ice cream scent I've ever smelled. I want to take a bite of the bar! It's like an intense rich sweet buttercream scent with sweet rich strawberry preserves folded in, and creamy milky whipped cream on top.
Throw:
5.00

Summer Sunshine
Notes: Pineapple and coconut bask in a warm mandarin glow.
I didn't include this in my video review since I didn't have it at the time. I can't figure out the notes in this one, but it smells great. Creamy and sweet, maybe a little coconut, maybe a little fruity, a little honeydew melon perhaps, and maybe a smidgen of lemon and perhaps a bit of amber for warmth? This smells like a rich summery perfume. Looking at the scent notes, the pineapple is the fruitiness (although it doesn't smell like pineapple at all to me, which is good as I don't like pineapple scents), mandarin (which is basically orange) is probably the lemon I detect, and there's the coconut. The scent lasted all day!
Throw:
4.50

Wassail Wonderland
Notes: Orange zest, lemon peel and cinnamon stick over fresh fir needles.
A fantastic combination of blue spruce with a smidgen of orange or lemon I think, and maybe a smidgen of spices. But this is not really a pomander scent, which is orange and cloves, a scent I don't like. I've always liked the combination of pine and orange or pine and lemon.
Throw:
4.50

World Traveler
Notes: Blackberry, dark pomegranate and oak bark inspire adventure.
A subtle men's cologne or body wash scent, not overly sweet and not too "cologney". There may be sandalwood in there to give it more of a "natural" vibe. Looking at the scent notes, I don't detect any fruit in this scent. It's very similar to a lot of other men's cologne or body wash type scents that I have.
