I don’t know about you but for me, my first stop at Walmart is the candle section. Seriously! Forget food, forget necessities… it’s all about the wax. (smiling)
I love Mulberry fragrances so when I saw these melts and smelled one for the first time, I purchased several to review. The wax smelled like a classic and tangy mulberry… ripe blackberries with lots of tartness and sugar…. Mmmm!! Mulberry candles, or wax I should say, reminds me of sweet tarts candy… so strong, yummy and serious room fillers. It’s one of those scents you can imagine tasting when you smell it. Cold sniff… very nice and super strong. I wasn’t detecting the spice but I’m guessing that will come out once the wax warms up.
I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two melters in my great room. Once melting… it took a few minutes to start noticing the scent and oh my goodness… it was so sweet and wonderful. It smelled just as it did cold… a strong and delicious mulberry – sweet tart candy type scent. The spice…. it was there but really subtle which I was happy with… anything stronger would have changed the entire dynamics of this fragrance. The overall scent… plump mulberries drenched in sugar with teeny-teeny hints of spice. It was super tart and out of this world strong. I loved it!!
Want to note… this was a family pleaser too… when my kiddo’s came home from school… the aroma in the house was the first comments they made. One said sour candies, the other… raspberries which both were pretty close on the mark. My husband just said berries and that it was super strong.
In closing, if you love classic mulberry scents but are after something with a slight twist… I think you’ll be pleased with this one. The teensy bit of spice gave it a nice wintery flair. We all really enjoyed it. Not sure I would go so far as to say is was the *best* Mulberry I’ve ever tried but it was pretty good and will for sure purchase it again.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5

These melts are pretty strong and it's a very different mulberry. One I like a lot. I wish they had this in a candle, not just melts. It's a perfect blend of fruity and spice.
