This is only a fall scent order. I wanted to be sure these are strong before I go ahead and get my winter/holiday scents too. I also had most of these last year so I probably won't be doing my individual Melted reviews on those.
Shipping was reasonably fast. I ordered on Aug. 28 and received it on Sept. 14. Sometimes shipping is quicker but I think at the time I ordered it was stated 10-15 days TAT (turn around time). Everything is nicely packaged, well presented and clean. And I received one free scent shot.
I did not get every fall scent that Sweet Fixations offers, although I did consider it. Instead, I got favorites from last year and a couple scents that are brand new. So let's take a look!
Sweet Potato Pie - 'The delicious aroma of candied yams, melted marshmallows, sugar and spice on a buttery crunchy crust.' This was an absolute "LOVE!" from last year that I knew I had to have again.
Pumpkin Patch - 'Sweet and creamy pumpkin pie with butter, pecans, and a hint of spice.' This is one of her new ones this year. This could be a new favorite. It's more plain pumpkin than the usual pumpkin spice.
Cranberry Orange Spice - 'Tart cranberries, orange zests, and spiced apples.' Loved this last year and had decided it would be my 'melt this ALL day on Thanksgiving' scent, so had to get it again.
Cozy Home - 'Housewarming spices with slices of juicy apples. Perfect for fall!' I did not have this one last year but as soon as I smelled it today I decided this might replace the Cranberry Orange Spice as my 'all day on Thanksgiving' scent. It says apples in the description but it reminds me of cranberries.
Bobbing For Apples - 'Crunchy toffee chips and apples dripping with buttery caramel.' Did not have this one last year. It's a nice caramel apple type, stronger on the apple.
Pumpkin Souffle - 'Butter, sugar, spices, vanilla cream and pumpkin.' The strength of this one last year impressed me so much I had to get it again. Very pumpkin-y, warm and rich, not too spicy.
Hocus Pocus - 'A magical spicy blend of freshly ground cinnamon, and herbal notes of bergamot, jasmine, black tea, and patchouli.' I've had a scent by this name in the past from another vendor but don't remember if it's this same as this. I'm not a big patchouli fan. Not fond of bergamot either actually. So why did I get this? Cuz I was taking a chance. LOL! It's light on cold sniff, but what I can smell is nice, leaning towards the tea scent.
Apple Harvest - 'Apple mixed with fruity notes and touches of spice.' Enjoyed this one last year. Soft spice warms this up, gives it a bit of a cider note.
Pumpkin Marshmallow - '(SF Blend) Pumpkin and spices combine with toasted marshmallow.' I didn't try this one last year so thought I'd give it a go this year. Sweet, creamy pumpkin. A bit heavier on the marshmallow.
Candy Corn - 'Smells just like the candy tastes with notes of sweet buttery vanilla and hints of orange.' Didn't have this one last year either. Candy Corn scents can often be too light but this one seems quite strong on cold sniff. I'm surprised and pleased! I don't detect orange specifically but there is a bright sweetness to the creamy vanilla-butter.
Trick or Treat - 'Great Halloween scent of pumpkin, apples, berries, orange and cinnamon. With notes of sugar cane and vanilla.' I did not have this one last year either. It's a very interesting one, warm but sweet, with soft spices. It's more of a spiced fruit than a pumpkin scent.
Italian Biscotti - 'Yummy almond cookies with vanilla and dark chocolate.' This is another of her brand new scents, and this was my freebie. And it's freakin' yummy! Warm, creamy cookie scent with a light almond note and just a hint of chocolate.
On cold sniff, I am extremely pleased with this order. Most of these will wait till October and November since they are pumpkin heavy scents, but there are a couple I will melt soon, like the apple ones. I'm already anxious to order my winter/holiday scents! Gotta wait and be sure these are strong enough first though.
So! See anything you like in this list? What are YOU melting this fall?
