Review Summary:

Just Picked (Patriot Candles) wax melts had a strong throw but a perfumey scent that I was unable to tolerate for long.

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was a clamshell style wax melt that had a large clear window on the packaging so that it was easy to view the wax inside. There was the picture of a tree in the upper right hand corner but no actual apples. The scent name and company name were clearly displayed. The wax was a candy apple red color and smooth to the touch. 3/5
  • Scent: Just Picked was obviously an apple scent. Cold sniff brought fresh McIntosh Apples to mind. I really had high hopes for this one! Melting it, however, was a disappointment. The scent itself was artificial and almost perfumey. Certainly not something I could tolerate for a long period of time. 1/5
  • Scent Throw: This had a fairly strong scent throw. 4/5
  • Longevity: It fizzled out after a couple of hours. 1/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): N/A
  • Overall rating: 2.5

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

  1. I disagree, I have found this particular scent just picked as a more natural scent of apples than any out there and the price you can’t beat. i come home from work and just really enjoy being home because of the natural scent not over powering.

  4. I purchased a Patriot Candle (Just Picked) 18 oz jar. My husband love candles and I was setting a romantic evening the candled burned for 2.5 hours and no smell. Now when you smell the candles it’s smells yummy 😋 this is not cool 10.00 dollars gone to waste which is a lot for 2 college kids!
