I don’t personally step into our local Walmart very often (too loud…too crowded..too short staffed…etc.), but I manage to get a handful of wax every time that I do. I actually bought these items several months ago, but just now getting a chance to blog about them.
Brands Included: ScentSationals, Better Homes & Gardens, 719 Walnut Avenue
The Wallet Says: $$$$$ – $$$$$
This is the lot of what I picked up – five wax melts and one three-wick candle. I bought two BH&G wax melts (Valencia Blood Orange; Fresh Pulled Taffy) and three from ScentSationals (Honey Bourbon Frosting; Molten Orange; Vanilla Bean). The candle brand I had not heard of before – 719 Walnut Avenue. It looks like a brand specifically for Walmart stores. The candle scent is Caribbean Villa. The wax melts are always around $2-2.50, but I don’t remember what the price was for the candle.
Honey Bourbon Frosting (Butter, sugar, and a touch of bourbon): This one is heavy on the honey to my nose, with just enough of the bold bourbon coming through to keep it from being too sticky sweet. Very creamy and heavy and rich. It also is strong on cold sniff. I’m excited to try this!
Vanilla Bean (Good, old-fashioned vanilla): A creamy, buttery vanilla scent.
Molten Orange (Intense orange essence): Mmmm, like a fresh burst of clean! Very citrusy and orangey. Not too sweet. I love it and it is strong on cold sniff.
Valencia Blood Orange: Very similar in scent to Molten Orange, but it doesn’t seem as bold to me.
Fresh Pulled Taffy: Oh my! This smells just like I opened a bag of fresh salt water taffy. It is gooey, and fruity, and sweet. Very sweet. It’s on the lighter side, though.
This is the three-wick candle from 719 Walnut Avenue in Caribbean Villa (Find your own seaside retreat with a tropical blend of fruits, coconut milk, and sugarcane). I love the pretty blue color! It’s a lovely scent – very fruity with a blend of that suntan coconut scent mixed in. It’s scent strength is in the mid-range. The wicks look kind of thin, so I’m wondering how this will perform. It was cheap, though, so I won’t have lost out on too much if it doesn’t work out.
