First impression of Melon Ball Punch:

Instant love!! I am a huge, HUGE fan of melon fragrances and Melon Ball Punch smelled like the sweetest melon scent loaded with sugar. Yankee Candle (way back when) had a scent called Sweet Melon. I loved it! Loved it so much, I was so sad when they retired it. I swear this scent smells exactly like it. Super sugary melon that melts in your mouth if you could eat it.

Here is the scent description for Melon Ball Punch:

This delicious fragrance mixes watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe with sugar water, vanilla, and peach. Citrus accords of mandarin, orange, and lemon add sparkle to the top.

Sniffing the wax, all I could smell was watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe with lots of sugar. I don’t smell any peach, vanilla or citrus. None, and I was perfectly fine with that. I loved this scent just as it was.

Time to get melting!


I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two electric melters in my great room. Once melting…. heaven! Perfection! LOVED!! It was also instant fragrance. I popped the wax in my melters, stepped out of the room for a bit and came back to the entire upper level of my home filled with tart and refreshing melon. This scent was all honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon combined – and oh my goodness… I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love it. Tart honeydew stood out the most and I’m still holding firm that this scent is close to Yankee’s Sweet Melon. Do any of you remember that one? It was all three melon’s combined and it was absolutely perfect. I’ve officially found my replacement and hope, crossing all fingers and toes that Better Homes keeps this one around a long, long time! I’m definitely going back for more next time I’m at my local Walmart.

Melon lovers… Melon Ball Punch is a must have. MUST!!

Strength – I would rate Melon Ball Punch a 10 out of 10 in any size room. Fantastic scent throw.

This is a limited addition scent so don’t wait long to try it. It will be gone before you know it.

Happy melting!
