Intro To My Wax Melt Review

I like trying different kinds of scents and taking a chance on scents out of my normal comfort zone. Since Goose Creek Candles was having another one of their crazy, irresistable sales, I decided to go all in on several new-to-me scents. Black Pepper certainly sounded like it fit the bill, so I purchased it without reading the scent description. Yeah, I get wild and crazy sometimes like that.

First Impressions of My Wax Melt

The Goose Creek Candle wax melts are these cool, round-shaped clamshells that are fairly distinctive. I was wanting something off the beaten path, so the black wax was doing the trick for me. Based off the name alone, I immediately thought of black pepper colognes – masculine, sexy, and a little dark. I took a cold sniff & I wasn’t far off! This scent was sultry and had a bit of a clean, cologne type of smell.

This is what the website says about this scent:

Experience the dark and sexy allure of a midnight sky. A sophisticated blend of warm woods, bright citrus and dark spices.

Prominent scent notes:

Top:Black Pepper, Bright Lemon

Mid:Mandarin, Jasmine

Base:Cedarwood, Patchouli, Amber

From Goose Creek’s Website

That is definitely a complex scent description. I’m not sure I got all that on cold sniff, but I could definitely get those base notes of amber and cedarwood. It gave this scent a full-bodied, sultry kind of feel that made me want more.

I did get a bit of spiciness that tickled my nose, which I’m assuming was the black pepper notes.

How Did My Wax Melt Perform?

I used two of these cubes in a 25W bulb melter in a large bedroom. It didn’t take long for this scent to start filling that space. I immediately thought of a man’s cologne. There was a calming, woodsy note to this as well. The peppery scent lingered in the air, tickling my nose every now & then. Just divine!

I had a lot of busy work to get done and I loved having this wax melt going in the background. It was enough to let me know it was going without running me out of the room. I would rate this one moderately strong and I could smell it just beyond the bedroom doors while melting. I was able to get several hours out of this melt. I kept it in my melter 3-4 days before I decided to change out.

Closing To My Wax Melt Review

I’m really glad I took a chance and tried this particular wax melt. Black Pepper was actually much more than I expected. It was warm, woodsy, and a bit cologne-y with just a bit of tickle to the nose. If you like complex, somewhat masculine types of scents, this one might be a good one for you to try.
