That Smell Good Shop Wax Melt Reviews (Wilma Handmade)
2015 and 2016
This is a review of That Smell Good Shop Wax Melts (formerly called Wilma Handmade, or Wilma Shop). That Smell Good Shop is a very popular wax melt company. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and throw of these wax melts!
These Wilma Handmade "Cup Melt Minis" are 0.8 oz. cups of scented wax priced at $1.10 each (as of the date of this review). I really liked the scents, and in general the throw was quite good. I was not able to do a video review because of the small size of these melts (there was nothing left to take a video of after I finished the review).
That Smell Good Shop has a store in the Embassy Crossings Plaza in Port Richey, Florida. Their website is https://www.thatsmellgoodshop.com. They also have a Facebook Page and a Facebook Group. They have a dizzying array of scents and blends, around 550 to 600!
A duplication of Angel by Thierry Mugler. Vanilla, sandalwood, and patchouli.
This is supposed to smell like Angel perfume, a beautiful scent with a slightly vanilla and chocolate note. But although this shares some of the same notes, it doesn't smell like the perfume. It's light on cold sniff, so it's hard to pick out the notes. It smells nutty, with maybe a smidgen of vanilla. It's not very sweet and doesn't have any perfumey notes. It's still a very nice scent though.
Apple Caramel Butter
Imagine slightly tart, crisp red apples drizzled with sweet caramel and creamy melted butter. A sweet and sticky craving.
Yummy sweet caramel apple. On cold sniff this smells exactly like the Caramel Apple scent to me, although maybe very slightly sweeter and richer? But melted, a rich buttery slightly salty note comes out. Very nice!
Aqua Di Gio Type
A sweet masculine scent. A light, fresh, aquatic fragrance. An Armani duplication.
I don't know what this particular cologne smells like, so I can't say if it smells authentic or not. It's a nice fresh herbal men's body wash scent. There may be a smidgen of lemon.
Banana Bubble Gum
Ripe banana blended with juicy bubble gum.
Somewhat authentic banana when melted, but smells more fake on cold sniff, and after melting for a few hours it did start to smell a little fake and "annoying".
An interesting and relaxing blend of blackberries and frankincense.
Very light on cold sniff, kind of a waxy woodsy scent with a hint of berry.
Blood Orange Nectar
A sweet nectar of blood orange, black currant, and sangria.
This is like a combination of orange and satsuma (a pungent sour type of orange). I like satsuma better on its own, but this is a nice strong scent. It's very similar to ScentSationals Molten Orange
Blueberry Lemon Verbena
A fresh and fruity blend of sweet blueberries and lemon verbena.
This smells like sweet lime with blueberry. The verbena makes the lemon smell like lime and gives this scent a spa quality, but also a bit of an industrial soap quality, but not in a bad way. This scent is unique and I like it, but I can see it being one that people will either like or hate.
Fresh blueberries, creamy coconut, and moist white cake.
This one smells really yummy. I smell blueberry first, and then maybe marshmallow and also a bit of brown sugar. It has a little bit of kick to it, so maybe there's a smidgen of lemon as well. Okay now I see that it has a coconut note. I don't really smell that though, or it's very faint. When melted, I don't smell that slight lemon kick, and I also smell a slight rich bourbon note. I really like this scent!
It's like having line dried laundry strung between two palm trees on a deserted island oasis. Clean cotton blends with tropical.
I expected this to be a tropical laundry scent, but it's actually a very nice musky jasmine floral perfume scent, similar to ScentSationals Vintage Lace.
A deep fragrance that blends tobacco leaves and rose petals with soft nuances of amber.
This had the same off-putting note as the Sweet Tobacco scent. On cold sniff I could smell the tobacco, and maybe a hint of rose but more like an old withered rose. I wasn't crazy about this scent.
A rainbow of fruit flavors come together with cotton candy and marshmallow.
Another fantastic lemon scent. This smells similar to Lemon Rose Nibbles, but it's more of a super sweet lemon jelly or lemon buttercream scent with a marshmallow note. No rose notes, of course. And it doesn't have that sour cream/ crème fraiche note either. The lemon is more intense than Lemon Rose Nibbles. I think I also smell orange and maybe some a smidgen of some type of red berry like strawberry. It's rich and maybe buttery, but not milky. I guess it's supposed to smell like a hard candy but I think it's more like a sweet jelly candy or buttercream.
Crisp, tart green apple dipped in buttery, sweet caramel.
Yummy sweet caramel apple.
Tropical fabulosity! A mesmerizing fusion of tangy citrus, sweet berries, smooth coconut and creamy vanilla.
This is not what I expected based on the name. I expected a watery or oceany scent. This is an intense black cherry with coconut and a creamy background, and maybe a smidgen of a tropical fruit. Kind of like a Serendipity scent with a tropical note. It's very nice. When melted, the black cherry note is not as intense.
It is a lightly chocolate-y sweet floral scent that really does surprise with its delightfulness.
This is a popular scent among wax vendors. This is basically a combination of a floral and chocolate. The chocolate is not an overpowering cocoa type chocolate, but a mild sweet vanilla chocolate, which works with the floral. The combination of scents makes it smell like a cashmere/amber type scent. It's a really nice scent.
Coconut Lime Verbena
A tantalizing fusion of fresh coconut, lime and verbena soothed by vanilla. A duplication of the Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena scent.
On cold sniff I smell lime first, then coconut, and also a palm note (which is hard to describe, kind of a soapy savory waxy scent with a hint of lemon, in a good way). But melted, I smell the palm first, then the coconut, and really no lime at all. Looking at the scent list, I think I do smell the vanilla slightly on cold sniff, but not when melted. I really like this scent!
A strong fresh baked cookie with a touch of molasses.
Rich salty cookies with just a hint of cinnamon. This is not a "fall" type scent despite the cinnamon; it's a "cozy" warm cookies right out of the oven scent.
Just like fresh cotton candy from a country fair! Light as air and sweet as can be. Sugary strawberry and sweet vanilla.
This really smells like cotton candy, very sweet with slight berry and that fake sugary note that makes it smell authentic.
A rich cranberry scent with a touch of spice and vanilla.
A nice sweet fruity candy scent. Not sure if I detect any spices. This one lasted a long time.
Down Home Muffins
Good ol' southern buttery sweet corn bread muffins! This is not your average corn bread scent.
Just like the description, it's a yummy buttery sweet corn bread scent. Smells a little like popcorn.
A tantalizing blend of ambers and woods.
This is the ultimate hippie incense fragrance, a sweet ambery baby powder patchouli type scent. Very nice, a little less sweet and more woodsy than other Dragon's Blood scents I've smelled, but sweeter and slightly more baby powder than Frankincense & Myrrh.
A provocative blend of pomegranate, persimmon, black orchid, lotus blossom, amber, mahogany woods, black violet, and a touch of cream. A Calvin Klein duplication.
Creamy woodsy warm amber perfume with a hint of blackberry, and not too sweet. Fantastic scent.
Just like the lavender household cleaner. So good and so strong!
Fabuloso cleaner is a scent all its own, a fantastic clean herbal soapy lavender scent, not too sweet, and it leaves your house smelling fresh and clean.
So sweet and fruity with figs and berries and just a hint of spice.
This smells like raspberry (and maybe strawberry too) with a fig note in the background. Fig scents don't really smell fruity, but more of an expensive department store type scent. This is a nice combination with the raspberry. I don't smell any spices. When melted, however, I don't smell the fig, but it smells more like a raspberry candy with a soapy note. It's a nice scent.
Frankincense & Myrrh
Enchanting aromatic blend of frankincense and myrrh.
Baby powder with a hippie incense note. Similar to Dragon's Blood, but this is a little spicier and not as sweet. Very nice, but only lasted less than 3 hours.
Fried Ice Cream
Buttery whipped cream tops creamy vanilla bean. Hints of toasted nut and grated cinnamon.
Super sweet vanilla bean with just a hint of cinnamon and maybe caramel? Smells a little like buttercream frosting.
All the fruity goodness with just a touch of sugary vanilla drizzled icing.
This really smells like Fruit Loops cereal, with the fake orange, lemon and strawberry notes, and I swear I even smell the cereal.
Glam Princess Type
Vanilla orchid, pear, and honey with cedarwood, guava, and marshmallow. A Vera Wang duplication.
I have no idea what I'm smelling. It's a nice slightly perfumey scent with a mustiness. It reminds me of an old upscale department store. There may be a smidgen of mint and vanilla, but I'm not sure.
A creamy milk fragrance.
This smells more like rich salty buttery popcorn than milk, although it does have a rich milky note. Yummy scent!
Guilty For Men (type)
Lavender, lemon, orange blossom and neroli with patchouli. A Gucci duplication for men.
On cold sniff, smells like a fresh watery herbal men's cologne. I do detect the lavender and a slight lemony note, but no orange blossom/neroli.
Hawaiian Sweet Grass
A lush tropical spa scent from the heart of the Hawaiian islands. A beautiful balance of succulent island fruits mingling with hibiscus and sweet grasses.
I'm not sure what I'm smelling, but it's nice. A little green, a little floral, a little fruity, and a little perfumey, but no individual notes really stand out.
Sugared lemon shortbread topped with fresh blueberries.
This is a super fake blueberry scent (but not in a bad way) with some kind of super sweet but tart syrupy note in the background. OK looking at the scent notes, that tartness is lemon. But when melted, I don't smell the lemon. Actually this smells like blueberry scented brandy, that sweet almost alcoholic note. I like it.
Hello Sugar (type)
Delightful shortbread dusted with lemon sugar.
Perfect combination of sweet and sour lemon. Smells like a lemon smoothie or slushie. This might be the best lemon scent I've ever smelled!
Iced Lemon Biscotti
Sweet lemon notes with a creamy bakery background.
Yummy rich lemon cake scent, and not overly sweet.
Iced Orange Dipity
Serendipity blended with iced orange bakery goodness. (Serendipity is a sweet blend of cherries and vanilla with a touch of coconut.)
This smells scrumptious. It smells like vanilla pound cake with almonds and orange jelly filling. There's also a rich buttery brown sugar note when melting. I'm surprised I don't see almonds in the scent notes, but it's probably the coconut I smell. I love this one!
The perfect glazed donut with a sticky strawberry filling.
This smells just like a powdered donut filled with jelly. I can smell both the fruit and the sugared donut dough.
The jungle comes alive in this blend of hardy woods, and tropical fruits and florals.
On cold sniff it smells like a wood workshop where fresh wood is being cut. But there's also an authentic tree sap scent like the peppery sap of a pine tree. But it's not really a pine scent. There might also be a smidgen of patchouli. This is a nice raw wood scent, and it's also peppery, without any sweetness or smokiness. It has a very slight milky note. Looking at the scent description, it doesn't really tell me much. I don't smell anything tropical or fruity at all, and the floral might be what I think is patchouli (a very faint sweetness that I smell on cold sniff but not really when melted). I really like this scent in nature, but I'm not sure it's something that makes sense inside a house.
Fit for an earthy princess with mingling notes of patchouli, lemongrass, sweet orange, and lavender.
Second one with a musty, slightly moldy note. But I think it's part of the scent. It's light on cold sniff. I think I smell something like marshmallow or bubble gum or something really sweet. But this also has kind of a "hippie" vibe, like patchouli or some other hippie spice. I think I like it, but it's too light to tell on cold sniff. Looking at the scent notes, there's the patchouli.
Can a scent be sweet, zesty, and tart all at the same time? This one is.
I do smell lime, but this one is weak on cold sniff. Melted, it has a vinyl-like chemical note that makes it smell like an industrial cleaner, but not in a good way.
Our sweet lavender
This smells like lavender scented bubble bath with a floral note. It's a nice, relaxing scent, perfect for a bedroom or bathroom.
Fresh lavender with coconut and vanilla.
On cold sniff this smells like straight lavender, not too sweet. But when melted I also smell a warm milk note in the background. If the lavender were a little sweeter it would be a great scent for a baby's room. After about an hour it started taking on a nice coconut note. Ah, now looking at the scent notes, there's the coconut.
Sweet lemon goodness with creamy serendipity (Serendipity is a sweet blend of cherries and vanilla with a touch of coconut.)
On cold sniff, this smells like almond, coconut and vanilla, with a hint of cherry and lemon. When melted, I don't really smell the lemon. The scent fizzled in under an hour.
Tart lemon, sweet sugar, vanilla, butter, coconut, and pie crust. One of my favorite treats.
A nice tart lemon with bakery notes. I wouldn't notice the coconut if I didn't know it were there, but now that I do, I think I detect just a hint of coconut.
Lemon Rose Nibbles
Sweet and tart lemon candies blend with cake bites and garnished with a silky rose.
This smells fantastic! It smells like a super creamy crème fraiche with that intense milky cream note and sour cream. But also vanilla and a creamy lemon are added to the crème fraiche, and just a hint of rose which sounds weird but really works. The scent lasted about 16 hours!
Lime Dipity Crumble
A dash of the perfect lime, a splash of serendipity, covered in fresh baked crumbles for good measure.
This smells almost exactly like Lemon Dipity, although there's a smidgen more of that sweet tart lime note. I don't smell any additional bakery notes from the "crumble". If I have both scents side by side though, I can barely tell the difference.
Make a sexy statement. Blood orange blended with bourbon, oak moss, and patchouli with notes of amber.
On cold sniff it smells like a pleasant fresh perfume or cologne, actually like hand lotion or body cream, with maybe a hint of baby powder. I don't smell orange, but maybe amber and oak moss.
Tangy mandarin and zesty lime accented with a touch of basil. This is a duplication of Jo Malone's Lime, Basil, Mandarin.
This doesn't smell like I expected it would. I do smell lime, but it's kind of a perfumey scent. It's unique and I like it. OK now looking at the scent notes, it's supposed to smell like perfume.
A hand-rolled blend of champa flowers, spices and resins that create an aromatic incense.
I love the Nag Champa scent. It always smells to me like baby powder mixed with orange blossom/neroli and a little bit of patchouli. It's an "occult shop" type scent with a hippie vibe. This one is a standard Nag Champa scent.
Our patchouli touched with silky red roses.
I really like this scent. It smells like an old-fashioned earthy rose, like something that might be burning in a house belonging to an old lady who used to be a hippie. I can smell both the patchouli and the rose.
Tart and juicy pear blended with our vanilla bean noel! A fabulous combination.
This smells good enough to eat, a perfect combination of vanilla, marshmallow, a hint of caramel, and pear!
Sweet and buttery aroma of freshly baked cookies blended with Pink Sugar (Pink Sugar is a fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam, a duplicate of the Aquolina fragrance)
This smells incredible, a perfect combination of Pink Sugar and warm vanilla cookies. Yummy!
Pink Lavender Mallow
Pink Sugar blended with relaxing lavender and sticky sweet mallows. (Pink Sugar is a fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam, a duplicate of the Aquolina fragrance)
Yes, it's just as fantastic as it sounds. First I smell super sweet buttery yummy marshmallow, then I smell Pink Sugar (a super sweet cotton candy type scent with a hint of raspberry and a smidgen of a perfumey note), and then just a hint of lavender to add a calm note and temper some of the extreme sweetness. But make no mistake, this is a super sweet scent. I need to order more of this one!
Pink sugar blended with our ultimate lemon
The main note is a nice tart lemon, which is mixed with Pink Sugar.
An unlikely - but perfectly perfect - blend of our Pink Sugar and Patchouli (Pink Sugar is a fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam, a duplicate of the Aquolina fragrance)
This is a combination of Pink Sugar and Patchouli, and what a great combination! I smell mostly the Pink Sugar (a super sweet cotton candy type scent with a hint of raspberry), and just a hint of a hippie vibe. A little more patchouli would have been nice, but I like the Pink Sugar anyway, with or without the patchouli.
Pink Sugar (type)
A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam. An Aquolina duplication.
Perfect Pink Sugar scent, sweet and caramely like cotton candy, with a hint of berry.
A refreshing fragrance that blends pomegranate, berries, icy peppermint and creamy vanilla.
I can't figure out what I'm smelling, maybe a super sweet apple or melon with mint? There's also a bit of tartness. It's a nice scent but there's something a little "gaggy" about it. OK looking at the scent list, the tartness is coming from the pomegranate.
Pretty In Pink
Pink Sugar blended with red raspberry, crisp citrus, melons, and white flowers.
On cold sniff it's sugary sweet berry mixed with sweet girly perfume, similar to Pink Sugar. It smells similar to ScentSationals Pretty in Pink. But melted it's completely different, with a deep richness, like a dark earthy raspberry, that keeps it from being too girly. Fantastic fragrance!
Rain Forest Spa
Tangy grapefruit and other sweet citrusy notes blend with crisp bamboo.
Sweet green grass with a subtle jasmine type floral note and a fresh clean watery note. Looking at the scent notes, maybe there's a hint of grapefruit, but this is not a citrusy scent at all. The bamboo is that main green note. A nice fresh, pleasant fragrance.
A delicate creamy fragrance.
I don't know what Raisu is, but this smells like rice pudding, a sweet creamy scent with a hint of cinnamon.
Deep earthy and musk notes of patchouli blended with sweet ripe raspberries.
I love the smell of patchouli, but this one is quite weak on cold sniff. I think I smell it a little, along with a baby powder note and a very slight raspberry note. Melted, it smells like an earthy raspberry. It's a nice scent, but not as fantastic as I thought it would be.
Fresh green notes blended with sweet orange flowers.
Sweet, fresh and green with a hint of neroli (orange blossom), like a fresh shampoo or shower gel.
Tart, strong and freshly picked red currants.
This smells like old-fashioned rose scented soap, with a note of currant and maybe a smidgen of berry. It's a nice bedroom or bathroom type scent.
A strong, earthy patchouli with a more rustic note than our regular patchouli.
This is a true patchouli scent, which is a slightly sweet mildewy woodsy scent that almost has a slight cocoa note. It's a little similar to ScentSationals Patchouli Woods Fusion, although more "raw" and without clove notes. I really like this scent, but I think it's one that people might either love or hate.
Clean, fresh, and slightly powdery with a hint of a woody undertone.
Can barely smell anything on cold sniff, maybe baby powder with an herbal or woodsy note?
Strong and zesty citrus notes. A wild spin on orange citrus scents.
Satsuma is a small tangerine type mandarin that has a very strong tart citrusy orange scent, with grapefruit notes and a little lemon. It's like orange on steroids. Fantastic!
Wild berries blend with white florals, amber and coconut.
Very nice warm almost buttery amber, along with a hint of fruit, and maybe a smidgen of coconut. I don't smell floral.
A sweet coconut blend with delicate island delights.
This smells fantastic. I smell some kind of fruit first, maybe pear or a light tropical fruit. And maybe also vanilla or even marshmallow. And a sweet perfume note in the background. And perhaps a smidgen of coconut? Melted, I smell more of the tropical notes. Very nice!
Southern Fried Apples
Juicy red apples rolled in sweet sugar and deep fried to a golden brown.
Smells like sweet apple cider. The scent lasted less than 2 hours.
A refreshing blend of sugar sweetened black currant with lemongrass and a touch of lime with a slightly herbal note.
This smells like old lemon scented industrial cleaner to me. I didn't like this scent.
Rich woody teak with warm spices with a touch of amber.
Woodsy scent with cloves.
Sugary sweet lime.
This smells like a sweet lemon/lime scented body lotion with a slightly floral or perfumey note. It's more of a "body wash" scent than a foodie scent. I expected the scent notes to say that it's a dupe of some popular perfume. Melted, it's a nice clean scent.
Sweet Tobacco Leaf
A fabulous sweet and moist tobacco scent.
Sweet scent with an odd burnt or off-putting note. It smelled slightly like tobacco to me, but there was something about it that I didn't like.
Sweet woods with notes of berries and a touch of musk.
Sweet slightly woodsy note on cold sniff, maybe with a hint of amber, but very light scent so I can't tell.
Under the Boardwalk
Realistic notes of aged wood planks, fresh citrus, with nuances of sun and sand.
I smell chocolate chip cookies. Looking at the scent notes, I don't smell any of that!
Our own blend of clean cotton linens and lemongrass with a slightly green note.
On cold sniff it's lemongrass and laundry, kind of like a lime scented cleanser but in a good way. When melted, the lemongrass/lime scent overpowers the laundry scent, but the "clean" notes still come through. A little too limey to use as a "clean house" scent.
The aroma of violet blends with crisp, clean lime.
This is not a combination of scents that I would think would work, but it does! Violet with just a hint of lime on cold sniff, although when melted I just smell the violet.
