Candlefind Says

Slightly cologne-y with a hint of floral notes and just the right amount of saltiness, this was a calming, relaxing scent with a great scent throw.

Pros

  • Good scent strength and throw
  • Long lasting

Cons

  • Where’s the peach?

Intro To My Wax Melt Review

On this Labor Day, I think I’m still trying to hold onto that little bit of summer that’s left. Think beach days, pool nights, and ice, cold lemonade. Ahhhh! I think that’s what prompted me to pull out this Boardwalk wax melt from ScentSationals. It’s not a scent I would normally gravitate to, but what the heck? It sounded like it would add a bit of variety while helping me deal with summer-ending regret.

First Impression of My Wax Melt

The photo on the front of the package is really what drew me in – a lonely boardwalk setting at sunset. It seemed so serene! That’s the feel I got when I took a cold sniff of the wax, too. Definite ozone-notes, which is somewhat cologne-y to me. I also got just a hint of saltiness in this scent.

Yep. I think I would agree with just about everything – except for the peach! I wasn’t getting that on cold sniff, but I sure wanted to. Still, I was anxious to start warming this wax to see what it would do.

How Did My Wax Melt Perform?

I used 2 cubes of this wax melt in my 24W bulb warmer. I had the scent out in my open living space – basically 3 large rooms combined. The scent did not take long to start wafting all around. The cologne-like notes started out a little stronger than I would like, but they soon settled down. The floral part of this scent was more subtle and soothing. I hate labeling scents as “masculine,” but if I had to, I’d say this one fit that bill.

I did get some saltiness that gave this scent a little bit of an edge. Peach? Not so much. To think of it, I didn’t really smell those warm wood notes, either.

This is one of those cases where the scent strength and the scent throw were not on the same scale. This had a decent scent strength (about 3.5/5) but the throw was fantastic (4.5/5). This scent permeated the whole open area with ease and I smelled it on down my hallways. I even smelled it after turning off the melter for a long while. It was just one of those scents.

I was able to burn these two cubes for a few days pretty much non-stop with really good results. Overall, a winner if you like this type of scent.

Closing To My Wax Melt Review

I really liked this scent. It was different enough from my typical bakery, clean, or floral scents. I would say you might like this scent if you like ozone type scents with a little bit of the cologne-type notes. You do have to like a little bit of floral – at least not hate them – in order to enjoy this scent. It wasn’t overly floral, but the notes were there, so keep that in mind when deciding. What I really liked was that this scent had a great throw without running me out of the house scent-wise. To me, that’s kind of hard to do and I think this one did it perfectly. I may let go of my summer kicking and screaming, but not this wax melt!
