Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was a clamshell style wax melt with a clear window on the lid so I could easily view the color of the wax. The word ‘papaya’ was in green scrolled script and the word ‘mango’ was in a black all caps font. That gave the label a little bit of visual interest. There was a picture of a fruit tree high in the upper right corner that was just visible (looked like a papaya tree). The color of the wax was a salmon-y pink color. My wax melts were lumpy on what was supposed to be the smooth side. 2.5/5
  • Scent: This is where this wax melt shined! The first scent I really noticed was the mango scent – it actually had somewhat of a peach fuzzy type smell to it, too. A little citrusy and tangy but also sweet and juicy with papaya. It had almost a candy-like scent, so not the most authentic but definitely enjoyable! 4/5
  • Scent Throw: This wax melt provided a good scent throw in a large open area. I could smell it throughout my living space but it did not travel to other parts of the house. 4/5
  • Longevity: Unfortunately, this scent did not last as long as I would have liked in my melters. I’m comparing it to the ScentSationals wax melts I use most often. 3/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): N/A
  • Overall rating: 3.5/5 (Technically 3.3 but rounded up because the scent was really good.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.
