Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was a set of three wax melts – scent shots. The cups were round with a lid on top and all three were packaged together in a cello bag with a tie. The lid on each melt held the company name and scent name. These melts were easy to pop out of the cups. The wax was a pretty light blue. 4.5/5
  • Scent: Oh my, this scent was delicious! The buttery birthday cake (with frosting) was the most prominent note with a twang of raspberry mixed in. The citrusy, sweet notes blended in well and actually became more noticeable the longer the melt was in the burner. 5/5
  • Scent Throw: Great scent throw! This scent filled the room it was in  – enveloped everything. It did not run me out of the room, but it was definitely a strong throw. 4/5
  • Longevity: Here’s the only problem I had with this melt. It fizzled out after only about 3 hours straight. This is unusual for my TCC melts, so I’m thinking this was a fluke. 1.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Super duper customer service always! 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

  2. This is a great scent. The Winter Candy Apple stands out the most to me. It drowns out everything else. It’s strong too… I love melting this one after dinner to help get rid of all the cooking smells.
