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.

  2. Absolutely LOVED this scent! I purchased it and used a few wax melts and had one left and thought now Where did I purchase these again?? Thankful
    To put the name in and have it pop up Walgreens!! Just 1 wax melt lasts an entire afternoon into evening, and Does stand up to its name “Just Picked”!! Apples! Fresh and Crisp scent! Will be picking up
    Some more of these Tommorow! You won’t be Dissapointed you did!!!!
