Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: I love the look of the drizzle melts! The wax was primarily off white but the “topping” included drizzles in shades of brown. The wax melts are huge and larger than standard size wax melts (see photo below). 5/5
  • Scent: This is a great scent – it smelled just like an apple pie baking in the oven. I smelled the sweet, sugary apple pie filling with just hints of cinnamon. I could also smell the buttery pie crust, which made this all the more delicious! 5/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw was moderately strong. It filled the powder room without being overwhelming. I could smell it well in the laundry room. It was not strong enough to creep out beyond the doors. 4/5
  • Longevity: Enjoyed this scent for hours on end before it started to fade. It faded faster with the bulb melter. 4/5
  • Customer Service: Always great CS here. Fast shipping, no problems with the order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5 (Technically 4.6 but rounded down for scent throw.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.







Happy candle burning ~

  1. Cross Creek and Dutch Apple in my opinion you can’t go wrong. Cute packaging, and pretty decorated wax melts. Andrea I must say, I have never thought about melting a bakery scent in my laundry room! Maybe I should give it a try, it will probably cover up smell from my two dogs at the very least!
