Brand: Food Network
Scent: Wild Blueberry Muffin
Type: 2.5oz Clamshell Melts
You have to admit, Food Network makes some pretty yummy fragrances in both candles and melts. Wild Blueberry Muffin lived up to that reputation. It smelled absolutely scrumptious directly from the container, so I had high hopes it would translate into an equally amazing scent once melting.
Before I go into the fragrance, I wanted to disclose I purchased these melts at Kohl’s Department Store… an official retailer of Food Network candles and melts. Surprisingly, this brand is not cheap. This clamshell pack was $7 dollars which is insane for a clamshell but luckily, I purchased it on sale at 50% off. Had they been full price… I would have passed.
Okay, time to find out how these melts perform!
Here is the scent description for Wild Blueberry Muffin:
The wild blueberry muffin fragrance is a delectable combination of scents: fresh wild blueberries, butter, sugar, and vanilla. You’ll fool guests into thinking you have homemade blueberry muffins baking in the oven!
Smelling the wax cold, I didn’t really smell warm cake notes, butter or vanilla. I smelled blueberries and sugar. Very sweet and strong.
I used the entire clamshell pack in 2 electric melters in my great room. It’s a huge room and two melters works better for that size space. Once I popped 3 cubes each in each melter, I waited for the magic to begin and within twenty minutes… the aroma was moving all throughout the room. It wasn’t strong but a soft medium aroma. The scent… a fake kind of generic blueberry. I didn’t like it. 🙁 The foundation of this aroma was missing that warm bread/bakery note and the blueberries almost smelled plastic’y. It just didn’t translate well.
Sorry Food Network.
In closing, I won’t be purchasing this scent again. But, check it out for yourself next time you’re at Kohl’s. Who knows… you may like it.
Overall rating: 3/5
Note… Even though I didn’t care for the scent, it still rates decent because it met all the criteria we look for. Presentation was pretty good and the strength was medium. 3 star rating.
