Calypso Colada & Rum Wax Melts – ScentSationals Review
by Christina Rylan
Scent: Calypso Colada & Rum
Type: 2.5oz Clamshell Melts
First impression of Calypso Colada & Rum:
Before I get started on this review, I want to point out I purchased Calypso Colada & Rum through ScentSationals website prior to them closing to revamp their site. All their scents of course changed. Some make it through the revamp, others didn’t and one scent that didn’t make it was Calypso Colada & Rum. I’m reviewing it anyway just for reference in case it ever comes back. I’m hoping it does because this scent smelled absolutely amazing!! Just imagine a classic pina colada with tart pineapple and loads of sugar. So creamy, sweet and irresistible. I absolutely loved it.
I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two electric melters in my great room. Once melting it took literally minutes before the scent was moving through my living room and from then on out – I was in tropical heaven. I am a huge fan of pina colada scents, the more coconut and tropical, the better. First sniff, I didn’t detect any rum in the mix… to me, this scent was solid tropical coconut, pineapple and cream with lots and lots of sugar. Once this scent was melting… it was all that and more. Pineapple dominated for sure followed by coconut and I’m thinking a few other fruits like mango and papaya but it was hard to tell. Suffice it to say – this is a scent I imagine drinking through a straw with an umbrella sticking out of it on a tropical beach somewhere. It was tart, refreshing and pure YUM!!!
Strength – I would rate these melts a 10 out of 10 in any size room – small or large. It was pretty strong and potent. I loved it!!
Overall rating: 5/5
