Cotton Candy Cloud – ScentSationals Wax Melt Review
by Christina Rylan
Scent: Cotton Candy Cloud
Type: 2.5oz Clamshell Melts
These melts were purchased at Walmart
First impression of Cotton Candy Cloud:
Cotton Candy is always a fun scent to melt or burn any time of the year and Cotton Candy Cloud from ScentSational’s smelled light but still quite yummy. The wax smelled like sweet spun sugar all the way. The color of the wax was a cotton candy pink and the label showed cotton candy clouds over shimmering pink water. Pink! Pink! Pink!
Here is the scent description for Cotton Candy Cloud I pulled from ScentSational’s website:
The ultimate sweet spun sugar confection! A blend of fresh peach nectar with subtle undertones of shredded coconut and pink lady apple topped with a hint of lemon and wrapped in chiffon musk.
Hmm. That sounds like a very different cotton candy I’m used to. Cold sniff, I didn’t smell any peach, coconut or chiffon musk at all. Maybe apple and that hint of lemon. Coconut? Oh, I hope so!! If all those elements come to life once melting, I’ll be happy.

Melting Cotton Candy Cloud:
I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two electric melters in my great room. Once melting, it took a good hour before the fragrance was moving through my living space, which told me this scent was pretty light. The aroma… chiffon musk and sugar all the way. Cotton Candy Cloud was not your average cotton candy. This one had a tad more sophistication to it. Just sniffing the air, I smelled a light but sweet musk that kind of reminded me of a light pink sugar. Up close to my melters, I could detect the cotton candy. The peach nectar, coconut, apple and hint of lemon indicated in the scent description? Nada. I couldn’t smell any of that in this aroma. Just sweet cotton candy and musk. I liked it but honestly, I wasn’t super crazy about it either. Not enough for a repurchase anyway.
Strength – I would rate Cotton Candy Cloud a 6/7 out of 10 in a really large room. 8 to 10 in medium to smaller rooms. This wasn’t a super strong fragrance for me. I tested this 3 different times just to be sure. Same result.
Cotton Candy Clouds is a limited addition scent from ScentSational’s so if you wanted to give it a try, I wouldn’t wait too long. Limited addition scents are only around for a few months and then either discontinued or retired till the following year if it’s a popular scent.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
