Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was their typical clamshell wax melt packaging. The picture on the front was rather bland, which may have been purposeful for someone getting a gift of coal for Christmas. The background was primarily gold and there are a few lumps of coal tied up with a gold gifting ribbon. Cute – but I wish the packaging let on more about the scent notes. 3/5
  • Scent: The scent was nice and a refreshing change from the typical heavy, spicy Christmas scents. On cold sniff I thought I smelled sandalwood and vetiver. Once warming, this was a soft, slightly masculine scent – almost like a man’s cologne. It really smelled pretty good. I don’t care for many cologne-type scents because they can be overpowering and gag me. This one did not – I really enjoyed it! 4/5
  • Scent Throw: This scent was enough to fill the large open area I had it in. Not super duper strong but I think the scent strength was perfect for the scent itself. 4/5
  • Longevity: Lingered in all melters for several hours (using them non-stop). The scent faded from the bulb melters first. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): Super fast shipping, always well packaged. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5 (Technically 4.2, rounded down because of scent throw).

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.







Happy candle burning ~

  1. Andrea that scent “Coal” sounds cool! I would certainly have put that one in my kid’s stocking! Instead one of them got “Elf Sweat” and the other one got “reindeer Poop” both from a totally different vendor. I absolutely adore Scentsationals! Strong scent throw and super awesome price point!!
