Trapp Fragrances (Candles) Wax Melt Reviews

July 19, 2017

This is my first review of Trapp Fragrances (Trapp Candles) Wax Melts. These are luxurious, authentic, complex scents with excellent throw. Although they are very expensive, they're worth it!

No. 28 - Bamboo Sugar Cane
Description: Notes from the heart of the sugar cane with a burst of citrus, enhanced with a touch of green bamboo
Notes: Touch of Green Bamboo, Sugar Cane, Burst of Citrus
I smell a tropical fruit scent with a strong green note. It's a tiny bit like pineapple but not nearly as sweet, and with a smidgen of a woodsy or peppery note. It also has a very fresh, crisp note, with maybe a smidgen of lemon (looking at the scent notes, there's the citrus). Bamboo scent is very green with a light, fruity tone, which is actually what I'm smelling here. It's a very natural, authentic scent. Despite the sugar cane note, this is not an overly sweet scent, since natural sugar cane is a green scent, and sugar itself does not have a scent unless it's mixed with something else sweet like vanilla. I really like this scent! It's so exotic and unique, and my description doesn't do it justice.

3.25

No. 70 - Black Orchid Ylang
Description: Full of mystery and intrigue, this fragrance captures the beauty of the rare black orchid and enhances it with exotic essence of the ylang ylang flower
Notes: Ylang Ylang Flower, Black Orchid, Jasmine
I've smelled this scent before and it's very familiar, so I probably have this scent in another brand but I don't remember which one. It's quite nice, a slightly bitter floral like an iris, not overly sweet, and with a warm ambery note. It does smell a bit like ylang ylang.
Throw:
4.00

No. 41 - Black Pepper
Description: Dark and aromatic, full of romance and intrigue. Notes of black peppercorn, anise and balsam wood lend to its unique character.
Notes: Black peppercorn, pink peppercorn, anise, balsam wood
A unique scent, this smells like black pepper powder with just a barely noticeable hint of sweetness and maybe a smidgen of a woodsy note or even pine. I like this one.

This is a discontinued scent that I bought at Tuesday Morning store. It's probably quite old and may have been opened and sniffed by a lot of people, which may be why the throw is weak.

Throw:
2.25

No. 13 - Bob's Flower Shoppe
Description: Imagine walking into an open air flower market – you are enveloped by the fragrance of all the flowers, freshly cut green stems, and water droplets on each petal.
Notes: Mélange of Fresh Florals, Cut Green Stems, Aqueous Notes
This one might be my favorite. I've never smelled a floral scented wax melt that smells so realistic! The scent description describes it perfectly. It smells like walking into a flower shop or hothouse. I smell honeysuckle and lilies and daisies, as well as a slightly bitter green note that makes this scent smell so authentic, like real flowers without that overly sweet perfumey note. Fantastic and realistic, and the scent lasted for at least 7 hours.
Throw:
5.00

No. 66 - Fig & Mimosa
Description: The perfect balance of bright and spicy. Ripe figs and delicate mimosa blooms are complemented by the richness of blonde woods.
Notes: Ripe Fig, Mimosa Blossoms, Blonde Woods
This smells like a softer, warmer, fruitier version of the Mediterranean Fig scent. It smells a lot like the Wild Currant scent as well, but with different notes. It's a fantastic scent, with almost a yummy quality. The scent only lasted for 2 or 3 hours.
Throw:
3.00

No. 8 - Fresh Cut Tuberose
Description: Tuberose is a tropical white flower with an intense, heady floral fragrance that reminds you of a gardenia, only more powerful and memorable
Notes: French Tuberose, Heady White Florals, Fresh Green Notes
Tuberose is one of my favorite floral scents. It smells like gardenia, but richer and warmer. This scent is an authentic tuberose with a sweet perfumey note. Fantastic! It has a smidgen of a Coppertone suntan note, like an orange blossom/neroli note. The scent lasted for over 12 hours!
Throw:
5.00

No. 71 - Indigo Acai
Description: Rich tropical berry notes blended with aromatic white floral notes of Gardenia and Jasmine. Creamy vanilla notes and White Musk add warmth to compliment this bright and lively fragrance.
Notes: Acai Berry, White Florals, Creamy Vanilla
This scent is similar to Scentsy Luna, ScentSationals Blackberry Cider, and Goose Creek Blackberry Parfait, but with slightly different notes. It's a very popular type of scent with a warm rich cashmere amber and hint of rich blackberries or plum. This version is richer and more full-bodied and slightly less sweet than other versions I've smelled. It's so rich it almost has a very slight sweet tobacco note. Very nice!
Throw:
4.00

No. 60 - Jasmine Gardenia
Description: Classic, sophisticated and stylish. An exquisite combination of the timelessness of jasmine and the heart notes of gardenia with a hint of honeysuckle top notes.
Notes: Gardenia, Night Blooming Jasmine, Hint of Honeysuckle
My 3 favorite floral notes together! It's hard to tell them apart sometimes, but all I know is this scent is sweet and warm and fantastic. I think I smell the gardenia the most. It's sweet and a little perfumey, but with just enough "greenness" to make it smell authentic. The scent lasted over 8 hours.
Throw:
5.00

No. 25 - Lavender de Provence
Description: True lavender, found only in Provence, the lavender capital of the world. A lavender so refined and accurate that it was previously only found in perfumes.
Notes: French Lavender, Clary Sage, Hint of Vanilla
This is the most authentic lavender scent I've ever smelled in a wax melt, like lavender essential oil, or like rubbing lavender flowers from the plant between your fingers. There's a smidgen of sweetness to keep it from smelling medicinal (the vanilla). The scent lasted 4 or 5 hours.
Throw:
5.00

No. 10 - Lemongrass Verbena
Description: Crisp citrus notes extracted from Asian lemongrass complemented by Brazilian verbena and softened with base notes of vanilla.
Notes: Asian Lemongrass, Brazilian Verbena, Hint of Vanilla
I smell both the lemongrass and the verbena. It's a clean, tart lemony scent with just a hint of a soapy note, and even a smidgen of what smells a bit like citronella. I don't really smell the vanilla, although there is a hint of sweetness that could be the vanilla.
Throw:
3.50

No. 14 - Mediterranean Fig
Description: Sophisticated and fruity at the same time, reminiscent of a fresh fig ripened in the warm Tuscan sun
Notes: Tuscan Fig, Hint of Melon, Blonde Woods
A very green, almost grassy, bitter fruit scent with a smidgen of a raw wood note. I didn't like this one at first, but then it kind of grew on me.
Throw:
4.00

No. 4 - Orange Vanilla
Description: The perfect combination of crisp orange notes elevated by the exquisite addition of Tahitian vanilla
Notes: Brazilian Orange, Tahitian Vanilla
This smells like a homemade orange creamsicle. The orange is very authentic and smells like real orange juice mixed with vanilla and sugar. It's sweet of course, but not a fake cloyingly candy sweetness. The scent lasted at least 8 hours.
Throw:
5.00

No. 61 - Quince & Pomegranate
Description: Sun-ripened quince & fresh pomegranate with top notes of Asiatic Lily
Notes: Sun-Ripened Quince, Fresh Pomegranate, Asiatic Lily
A nice authentic slightly earthy scent with a fruity note, and not very sweet. It smells a bit like fig or currant, a sophisticated fruit scent. It's a nice scent, but I don't like it as much as most of the others as it has a slightly bitter note. The scent lasted 5 or 6 hours
Throw:
3.25

No. 39 - Sexy Cinnamon
Description: Sultry, smooth and sophisticated - cinnamon like you have never experienced before. It's not your Grandma's cinnamon.
Notes: Natural Cinnamon, Blonde Woods, Aromatic Spices
This is a subtle "atmospheric" cinnamon scent, not a bakery or holiday or Big Red cinnamon. The cinnamon is not strong at all. I also smell subtle cloves or maybe a light wood note and maybe a floral or incense note in the background. I'm not a fan of straight cinnamon scents, but I like this one.
Throw:
3.25

No. 68 - Teak & Oud Wood
Description: A modern blend of dark woody and sophisticated sweet notes. Madagascar vanilla and Tonka Bean balance out this fragrance to create a smooth and spicy aroma.
Notes: Teak, Oud Wood, Madagascar Vanilla
This is an intense, resinous wood scent. I can smell the oud (the resinous wood note that smells almost like the sap of a tree, with a slight green note). It has a tiny bit of sweetness that I think is vanilla, but it's mostly kind of bitter, but in a good way. Looking at the scent notes, there's the vanilla. There's no smokiness at all in this scent. It's a sophisticated scent, like something you would smell when you walk into an expensive furniture store.
Throw:
3.75

No. 20 - Water
Description: The ozonic, watery notes are unlike anything you have ever experienced. This sophisticated, clean fragrance will astound you with its fresh and energizing spirit.
Notes: Ozonic Aqueous Notes, Slight Hint of Floral
This smells like a sophisticated yet fun spring perfume scent with a little bit of a laundry note, and not overly sweet. The scent lasted about 4 hours.
Throw:
3.75

No. 64 - White Lotus & Lychee
Description: An exotic fragrance that captures the delicate beauty of the white lotus flower enhanced with fresh lychee fruit and creamy jasmine rice.
Notes: White Lotus Flower, Fresh Lychee, Creamy Jasmine Rice
I can't figure out what this smells like, but it's nice. I smell a slightly tropical fig like fruit with a creamy background and maybe a smidgen of light wood and a hint of orange. I think there's a hint of floral in there too. This smells authentic and natural, and not overly sweet. I don't know what lychee is supposed to smell like, but according to online research, it's a fresh, fruity, citrusy scent but not too sweet, like a mild rosy juicy grape.
Throw:
3.50

No. 24 - Wild Currant
Description: The perfect currant. It captures the fresh, fruity taste with an unforgettable blend of red and black currant.
Notes: Red Currant, Cassis, Hint of Green Notes
Currant is one of my favorite scents. It's a very slightly tart, fig-like, classy and sophisticated soapy scent with a very slight berry note and only a smidgen of sweetness. When mixed with other scents, it gives the scent a "classy" note. It's a little like cranberry, but sweeter and not as tart. Looking at the scent notes, cassis is a type of currant, similar to fig, with slight cedar, clove and patchouli notes. Although I don't smell clove or patchouli in this scent, but there is a smidgen of light wood which could be a cedar note. The scent lasted 5 or 6 hours.
Throw:
4.50
