Threshold Wax Melt Reviews from Target - March 2021

March 10, 2021

This is a review of the 8 new Threshold wax melts from Target, made by Hanna's Candle.

You can find these on the Target website at this link, or click the search icon on the bottom right side of each scent's review below.

I reviewed the original 32 scents in September 2020.

Berry Lemonade & Melon
Notes: With raspberry and mint
This is a sweet summer fruit explosion! I smell strawberry, lemon, raspberry, pineapple, and watermelon, kind of in that order. I don't smell mint though. Melted, I no longer smell the pineapple, and the lemon becomes more of a spa-type lemongrass. Great scent either way!
Throw:
3.50

Cerulean Surf & Sea
Notes: With ozone and geranium
A fresh watery, oceany scent with a hint of floral and a smidgen of pepperiness. It has a tiny bit of bitterness that actually works in this scent (geranium is a bitter floral). I described Hanna's Candle South Seas the same way, so it could be the same scent (I no longer have it to compare). It's a really nice scent, and perfect for a bathroom.
Throw:
4.00

Golden Orchid
Notes: With tobacco flower and neroli
A super sweet scent of Oriental perfume (which reminds me of the cinnamon, clove, patchouli note in Estee Lauder's Cinnabar perfume), incense (nag champa, I think), and neroli. I also detect a hint of fruit, maybe apricot and/or honeydew melon. It's an amazing scent!
Throw:
3.00

Green Mango & Pomelo
Notes: With grapefruit and peach
If you don't like tropical or peach scents, you'll probably pass this one over based on the name and notes. But it's nothing like what I expected. It's a savory, peppery pine scent, similar to AmbiEscents Pepperberry Fir! It has a smidgen of a cucumbery note way in the background, and maybe a smidgen of the grapefruit, but if I didn't know it was supposed to be grapefruit, I wouldn't detect it. It's savory, not sweet, and I don't detect mango, pomelo, peach or any other fruits. Melted, I think I do detect the peach note, but it's still savory and peppery. Because I love pine scents, especially mixed with other notes, I really like this one!
Throw:
2.50

Peach and Apricot
Notes: With crisp apple and pear
This scent was not available when I did this review, but I'll add it later if I can find it.

Peony & Cherry Blossom
Notes: With vanilla and berry
On cold sniff I smell a light floral and/or rose perhaps, blackberry, vanilla, nutty, green, and a hint of woodsiness. I don't really smell cherry blossom per se. It's different, and classy. I like it! When melted, it's more green, nutty and woodsy, I don't smell the floral or vanilla, but still a bit of the fruit, and maybe even a barely detectable smidgen of pine way in the background. Still quite nice, and reminds me of Better Homes & Gardens Fragrant Woodland Walk but with less pine.
Throw:
3.00

Pineapple Sage & Sugarcane
Notes: With papaya and melon
This is definitely pineapple, and it's quite sweet, but it also has a fresh, crisp note that makes it different. I think I do detect another tropical fruit, but no melon or sage. It's kind of like a thirst quenching pineapple sorbet.
Throw:
3.50

Red Mandarin & Guava
Notes: With raspberry and grapefruit
A strong, pungent orange scent that's savory rather than sweet. It smells a lot like ScentSationals Molten Orange, but this scent has a more intense, sour, lemony, satsuma type note than the ScentSationals scent does. I suppose it could have a hint of a tropical fruit note, and I do detect a tiny bit of the grapefruit, but no raspberry. Great scent, but make sure to melt it in a very large room; there's some note that I don't like, that gets me in the back of the throat because it's so pungent.
Throw:
5.00

Sea Salt Caramel
Notes: With toffee and vanilla
Super rich caramel with a hint of saltiness, butterscotch, and toffee, and a hint of rich, dark chocolate. This may be the best caramel scented wax melt I've ever smelled! I want to take a bite out of it!
Throw:
4.00
