Review Summary:

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: The packaging label was basically blue with the picture of a beach in the center (presumably the Big Sur coast line). The company name was clearly visible, as was the scent name (in scripted font). The scent description on the package was the same that is on the website: Wildflowers and whale watching. The wax melt was a light blue color. 3.5/5
  • Scent: The scent is hard to describe - it was like a nondescript floral scent...I couldn't tell what specific flowers I was smelling. It was slightly perfumey and a little airy. From the scent description, I expected to smell ozone notes, but I did not. Overall, a pleasant floral but just not that interesting to me. 3/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw was milder than I'm used to with other ScentSationals wax melts. The scent was noticeable in my living space, but more as a background note. I could have easily paired this with another scent. It would work well for guests because it would not be too intrusive. 3/5
  • Longevity: This wax melt lasted for several hours in my melters. It did fade away a bit faster than most of the other wax melts I've had from ScentSationals. 3.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I had problems with smaller sized wax melts and some mislabeled scents in this order. 4/5
  • Overall rating: 3/5 (Technically 3.4 but rounding down for scent and scent throw.)

  • Light enough floral that it should be good to use while entertaining guests
  • Price (which can be cheaper if found locally rather than online)


  • Not as long lasting as other melts in the line
  • Scent throw is milder
  • Shorter longevity

  1. I too bought and tried this scent. It was pleasant. That’s the best I can say for it. Nothing amazing about it here. I have to agree with Andrea, the throw was ok and the longevity fizzled out. I really don’t think I would re-purchase this one again.
