Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was the typical clamshell from ScentSationals. I’m assuming the picture on the front was a shot of the beachfront at Hanalei Bay. The body of water was gorgeous and such a pretty blue. The wax melts were a sea blue, too. Very pretty. 3.5/5
  • Scent: I hate there is no real scent description for these melts, so you really just have to guess. In this particular one, I smelled creamy coconut and some fresh, maybe citrusy notes. Almost like pina colada but not that sweet. Delicious scent! 4/5
  • Scent Throw: The scent throw on this one was good. It filled my large open space and permeated the whole downstairs. Not an in-your-face scent but certainly strong enough. 4/5
  • Longevity: This melt lasted a long time. I kept it in my melters non-stop for the majority of the day and it did not lose its throw. 4.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I’ve had a problem with this order that has not yet been resolved, so I’m going to downgrade CS a half star. The order itself arrived very quickly and was packaged well. 4.5/5
  • Overall rating: 4/5 (Technically 4.1 but rounded down because of scent throw and CS.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.



Happy candle burning ~

  1. Andrea thank you very much for this review. My very favorite scent of all time is Coconut! I am always looking for a good coconut scent. I am actually going to go hunting for this particular wax melt.

    Thanks again!!
