Scentsy Bars Wax Melt Reviews - October 2017
October 27, 2017
This is a review of Scentsy Bar Wax Melts from October 2017, which I bought from Carrie Mamulski, a Scentsy Star Consultant from New Jersey.
Carrie Mamulski joined the Scentsy team in 2013 and is now a "Star Consultant". She hosts Scentsy parties (online parties, home parties, and catalog parties), and although she is located in New Jersey, she ships anywhere in the U.S. Carrie loves Scentsy and loves sharing it. She always tries to throw in something extra with each order, personalized to the person ordering. And if a customer orders warmers from her, she will always replace their light bulbs for free as needed, as just a little extra gesture.
You can buy Scentsy from anyone, but it's nice being able to order from someone who is very knowledgeable about Scentsy, provides great customer service and quick shipping, and goes the extra mile for her customers.

This is part 1 of 2, with scents starting with B to L. My reviews of scents beginning with M to V are here.
Bergamot & Solar Driftwood
Bergamot, Sea Spray & Solar Amber
This is a fresh men's body wash scent. I smell a cologne note (bergamot), with a lemony and/or orange note. It's very nice.
Mandarin, camu camu, and passion fruit
This is a very popular Scentsy scent. I smell apricot, a hint of orange, and maybe a smidgen of tea. But I also smell a little bit of a sweet warm floral note, so this is not totally a fruit scent. Looking at the scent notes, there's the orange (mandarin). Camu camu is a fruit with a slightly sweet, light citrus fragrance.
Caramel Vanilla Delight
Vanilla ice cream, liquid caramel and a splash of white rum
Just like the scent name, this is a sweet vanilla buttercream with a rich caramel note. It's not a salted caramel, which is good. There may be a smidgen of a sweet liquor like bourbon. Looking at the scent notes, it's rum, but it's very subtle. So yummy!
Apples, cinnamon sticks, and vanilla beans nestled among fragrant white cedar branches
I smell apples and real cinnamon powder and a hint of mulling spices in the background (but not too strong, and this is not a sour apple cider scent, nor is it a harsh cinnamon candy scent at all). I do smell a bit of the sweet cedar wood note, which makes this scent unique. Very nice.
Crisp lime, Meyer lemon and a pinch of garden thyme
It's grapefruit with a little bit of a savory or lemon note, rather than a sweet grapefruit. Looking at the scent notes, I guess it's the combination of lime, lemon and thyme that makes me think grapefruit. When melted, I do smell the zestiness of the lemon. It's a great scent!
Sweet orange, lemon balm and rosemary fig
I smell orange, grapefruit and lemon, with a smidgen of wood in the background, like cedar. It's not a sweet citrus scent, but more of a clean citrus. Very nice. Looking at the scent notes, I guess it's the rosemary fig that I think is cedar wood.
Golden gingerbread, spiced donut and vanilla bean.
This is different from most gingerbread scents I've smelled. It's very rich. I smell caramel, butterscotch, brown sugar, a little bit of cinnamon and ginger, and a hint of coffee. Fantastic, yummy scent.
Mistletoe sweetened by a touch of wild berry
Creamy sweet peppermint, warm rich cashmere, and maybe a smidgen of berry. Looking at the scent notes, mint is not listed, although this is definitely a minty scent and it smells fantastic.
Holly Berry Cinnamon
Cassis, clove leaf and juniper berry
A nice equal balance of cinnamon, cloves, and pine, with a hint of sweet slightly tart cranberry. Very nice!
Blood orange, cinnamon and fresh fir needle.
A lovely apple cinnamon scent with a hint of cloves. It has a bit of a powdery note, like powdered sugar, and some apple cider spices (but not harsh mulling spices). It's a nice, authentic scent that doesn't have any off-putting notes. Perfect for any room of the house or if you have company. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell orange at all; I really smell apple! And I don't smell pine either.
Lavender, vanilla beans, orange zest, and patchouli
I love this scent, and it's very strong on cold sniff. I smell a sweet lavender type note with a very rich vanilla. But there's another note I can't figure out, maybe a warm amber note. Looking at the scent notes, it's patchouli! That's why I like this scent so much! I don't smell orange though. Melted, there's a hint of a bug spray note, but not enough to bother me. I still love this scent! This might be a dupe of Bath & Body Works Lavender Vanilla, but since I've never smelled that version, I can't say for sure.
Lemon Thyme Berry
Sparkling lemonade and strawberry sprinkled with crushed thyme
This is an absolutely incredible scent, maybe my favorite of this whole batch. It's slightly similar to the discontinued ScentSationals Blackberry Lemonade, but it's sweeter and has a definite candy vibe. I smell a sweet candyish berry, maybe blackberry, and the zestiness of lemon. I don't smell thyme, which would give this scent a savory note, and it's not a savory scent at all. When melted, I do detect a very slight soapy note which might be the thyme.
Love & Happiness
Glazed chestnut, vanilla and sugarcane
Oh I really like this one. It's a sweet cotton candy type scent with a burnt sugar or slightly smoky note, and maybe a bit of vanilla. Very different! Looking at the scent notes, I guess the smoky note is the chestnut, although I don't smell nut at all.
Lucky in Love
Mandarin, bergamot and orange with hints of peaches and berries
This smells exactly like Tuscany Candle Stressless, which is also a dupe for Victoria's Secret Love Spell perfume. Like Tuscany Stressless, this is a scent I can't get into. I don't like it at all. It smells very bland to me, like grapefruit and paper. It's not really sweet either, and has a bitter almost slightly sour note. But most people love this scent, so I'm definitely in the minority. Looking at the scent notes, I do smell the orange, but it's a bitter orange, and I don't smell peaches or berries.
