This Is Us – ScentSational’s Wax Melt Review
by Christina Rylan
Scent:This Is Us
Type: 2.5oz Clamshell Melts
These melts were purchased at Walmart
First impression of This Is Us:
This Is Us is one of my favorite TV shows and even though this scent is completely unrelated to the show, I was still drawn to it because of the name. I had no idea what to expect with this scent. It’s also a challenge when you don’t have a scent description to go by when you’re simply at Walmart sniffing the wax. The label on the clamshell pack showed a picture of wine glasses filled with whiskey or bourbon. Smelling the wax, I smelled apples. Weird right? I thought so, so I went to ScentSational’s website when I got home to see if I could find a description. I thankfully found one:
This indulgent seasonal blend combines rich pumpkin puree with bright nuances of golden apples, red berries and juicy mandarin and warming nuances of cider spices, cinnamon sticks and musk.
I was right – apples!! Now that I have a description and comparing to cold sniff, I can pick up on hints of mandarin and spice, although the spice is very light. This scent intrigued me.
Time to get melting!
I used the entire clamshell pack (3 cubes each) in two electric melters in my great room. Once melting, it didn’t take long before the aroma was moving through the air and what a multi-faceted fragrance it turned out to be. Apple dominated of course with little hints of spice, little hints of berries, little hints of cider and lastly, little hints of musk. The musk kind of threw me at times and I didn’t care for that part, but everything else was pretty interesting. Sometimes I would sniff the air and smell one element with the apple over the other. For instance, I smelled apple cider with berries or apple cider with musk. Sometimes apple cider with berries and mandarin. It was weird and kept me guessing the entire time I had this one melting. Pumpkin puree? I never smelled a lick of pumpkin in this fragrance. If it was there, it was very subtle. All in all, this scent was apples, cider, berries and spice with a hint of musk thrown in the mix.
If you love apple fragrances, I do recommend you sniff this scent next time you’re at your local Walmart store. See what you think. As far as apple scents go, this one was pretty unique. Not sure I liked it enough to purchase again but I do recommend it to all you apple lovers out there to experience at least once.
Strength – I would rate this scent a 10 out of 10 in any size room. It was pretty strong.
This Is Us is a limited addition scent from ScentSational’s so if you wanted to give it a try, don’t wait too long. Limited addition scents are only around for a short time.
Overall rating: 5/5
