Candlefind Says

This wax melt smelled just like an old-fashioned cherry cola, fizz included! This one lacked scent strength and a decent scent throw. It also played out too fast. For the price, we expect better.

Pros

  • Authentic scent

Cons

  • Price
  • Mild scent throw
  • Lacks good scent strength
  • Fizzled too quickly

Intro To My Wax Melt Review

I’ve been dying to try the new wax melts from Bath & Body Works. They were running a special 3 for $15, so I thought that was a great time to jump in and try them. First up? I couldn’t resist Fountain Cola – the name conjured up dime stores and penny candy. It sounded so retro and so much fun. I was super excited to try it!

First Impression of My Wax Melt

I was a bit disappointed with the size of my wax melts once I received them. The clamshells just seemed so small in my hands! I checked the label and noted it was 2 ounces of wax. I remember seeing that on the website but I guess it didn’t fully register until the melt was in my hand. Comparing it to my usual ScentSationals wax melts, there was a difference. And not in a good way.

Still, I was excited to see what Fountain Cola was all about. I took a quick whiff and…oh my! Cherry cola!!! That’s exactly what this smelled like on cold sniff!

Fizzy Cola, Vanilla Syrup, Hint of Cherry

From B&BW’s Website

I definitely got the cherry notes in this wax melt. Not just a hint – it was full on, quite prominent. Right up there with the sweet, syrupy cola notes. It even smelled a little fizzy! LOVED!

How Did My Wax Melt Perform?

I used a 24W bulb melter in my large, open living area for this wax melt. I started out with two cubes because that’s my standard protocol. I left the wax melt to warm and returned a few minutes later. It wasn’t long before I was smelling that fizzy cola smell. It was so realistic – just like a freshly poured soda. I could even smell the bubbles, if that makes sense.

As the wax warmed, the cherry scent was distinct. Not overpowering but definitely more than a hint. It made this scent smell just like a cherry vanilla coke and I loved it.

What I didn’t love was the scent throw. I could smell the scent right around the area I was in but not throughout the open living space. The scent strength was on the mild side, too. Bummer! I left these cubes to melt most of the day, but the scent had fizzled out about half the day in. Another bummer.

Closing To My Wax Melt Review

I loved, loved, loved this wax melt scent from B&BW! I just wish it were stronger and that the throw was better. And I wished it lasted longer. I certainly wouldn’t repurchase this at regular price, but if there was a sale, I’d snap them up.

I think this is a great scent to try if you’d like to try something different, this one might float your boat.
