More About Yankee Candle Wax Melts

Availability

As of 2020, Yankee Candle no longer sells the oval shaped clamshells in their stores or on their website. The only wax melts they carry now are "singles", which are $2.00 for .8 oz. (pricey for one-time use). The oval shaped clamshells are still available at Walmart, Meijer, Kroger, and other stores, including discount stores such as Big Lots and Gabe's (although these may be discontinued scents from other stores).

Walmart has been coming out with fewer and fewer new scents since 2017 (when they were first sold at Walmart), when there were something like 25 new scents in both the spring and fall of 2017 and 2018, as well as a couple of holiday scents. But in 2019 there were only 5 new spring scents, 5 new fall scents, and no holiday scents. And only 3 new spring scents in 2020.

Deceptive Packaging

At $3.93 to $4.18 at Walmart, and $5.49 (but usually on sale for $4.11) at Kohl's, these are more than double the cost of the ScentSationals and Better Homes & Gardens wax melts at Walmart, which are $2.00 each. The packaging is bigger, so you think you're getting more. However, if you look at the weight, you'll see that at 2.6 oz., the Yankee Candle wax cubes are pretty much the same weight as standard 2.5 oz. wax melts. The wax cubes are spaced apart, so you're just paying for more plastic! Also, the wax does not reach the top of the pack, but is indented so it falls quite a bit below the top. These are the same illusive packaging techniques used for other products such as shampoo, where the bottle is only 3/4 full and the bottom is concave.

Scent Quality and Throw

Marketing ploys aside, the Yankee Candle scents are fantastic, and most of the wax melts also come in candles. The throw from these wax melts is much better than their votives (and tarts, which have been discontinued), both of which are dry and crumbly. The consistency of these wax melts is similar to ScentSationals wax melts. In fact, the throw on the Yankee Candle wax melts rivals that of other Walmart wax melts! At over double the price though, they're quite expensive.
