Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was the typical scallop wax melt in shrink wrap packaging. The label showed a beautiful cake on a plate slathered with a pale orange frosting (presumably pumpkin buttercream). You could barely see at the top a sprinkling of what looked like coconut. The wax itself was a pale orangey brown color. 4/5
  • Scent: Mmmmm, this was delicious. It is creamy and sweet with the spicy pumpkin blended in well. The pumpkin is heavy and smells “thick,” but the creaminess of the vanilla buttercream helps lighten it up quite a bit and make the whole scent a very caramel-ly kind of sweet.  4/5
  • Scent Throw: Great scent throw from this one wax melt. It completely filled the room it was in and I could smell it heavy in the air with every breath. I also smelled it coming from beyond the door, so wonderful throw. 4.5/5
  • Longevity: I kept this wax melt going all day and overnight. It still had a good throw the very next day. I did dump it after that, but it still had scent and I could have kept it longer. 5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): No problems with this order. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 4.5/5

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.

Happy candle burning ~

  1. I have tried this melt myself. I found the scent throw really poor. It wasn’t strong at all in my opinion. I used an entire melt in my plug in electric no bulb melter. I let it melt for at least 3 hours and really felt that it wasn’t throwing well. Did I get a dud? Maybe. Sorry guys, this one didn’t do it for me.

    • No need to apologize! You’ve just had a different experience. Sorry yours didn’t throw well. I also have this in the jar melt that I plan on trying soon to compare. Thanks for leaving the review!

  2. Thanks for taking the time to write this review! I got this as a gift for my grandmother because she had been looking for it in stores for many years, so I finally decided to look it up online and found it within a few minutes!
