First impression of Jamaican Rum Gelato:
Jamaican Rum Gelato is a limited addition scent for 2018 so if you want to try it, I wouldn’t wait too long. These limited addition scents go fast and once they’re gone, they’re gone. Now this label I loved and was drawn to. It had a blue wooden background with two vanilla gelato ice creams in waffle cones topped with crushed peanuts. YUMMY!! As soon as I saw that, I craved vanilla ice cream big time, an unfortunate hazard to melting bakery scents.
I couldn’t find a scent description for this fragrance but let me tell you, it smelled pretty darn good. It smelled like a rich and heavy vanilla bakery and it was moan worthy.
I loved it! Now let’s see how it holds up once melting.
I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in 2 electric melters in my great room. Once melting, it took literally minutes for the scent to start moving through my living room and it smelled absolutely delicious! My entire home smelled like a very heavy and dense vanilla and caramel. It was super strong and very edible, and boy was it dense and when I say dense, I mean the aroma was thick and strong – a scent that permeates every part of your house. That’s how strong this fragrance was for me. All I could smell was a bakery vanilla with swirls of creamy caramel. Maybe I could (somewhat) smell hints of coconut but it was very light compared to the vanilla and caramel. I loved it, so much so, I’m going back for more next time I’m at Walmart.
Bakery lovers… this is a must try. Especially if you love sweet vanilla scents. YUM!
Strength – I would rate these melts a 10 out of 10 in any size room. In fact, I have a feeling melting this scent in a medium or smaller room will almost be too much. I had this burning in a really large open space and it was mega strong. I was impressed for sure.
Definitely give this scent a try. I loved it.
Strength: 5/5 (SUPER strong!)
Overall rating: 5/5
