My Scents for Summer

I LOVE the smells of summer... lemonade, fresh cut grass, chlorine (odd, I know, but I love it)
I love bringing those bright, clean smells indoors with candles!
I actually dont use candles anymore, I use a scentsy melter! But I buy all my wax cubes from Walmart! I seriously think they smell JUST as good for JUST as long! and they are WAY cheaper! Each block is like $2.00 and it has 6 cubes. Each cube usually lasts me 2-3 days, but I melt mine constantly. I just went a tad overboard buying them the other day, so I thought I'd share a few of the scents I am loving right now!
**I found all of these at walmart, but I had to go to 2 different ones. My walmart doesn't carry every product like the bigger ones do, so check a few if you dont find some of these at yours. Or you can order them on Amazon**
1. Pomegranate Passion Fruit- I immediately love anything that had the words passion fruit in it. I knew I would love this scent before I even picked it up off the shelf! It is super tart-zesty smell, which are my favorite!
2. Sugared Melon Kiwi- Melon scents are my go-to for when I am having people over. I love that they smell clean and sweet at the same time! My favorite melon scent EVER came from the Quilted Bear in northern Utah, it was called Cucumber Cantaloupe, I think. This scent is really close to it, and 1/2 the price! This one is in my melter right now.
3. Tranquil Garden Spa- Usually, I am not a fan of the 'laundry' scents, like 'crisp linen' or 'clear air', but this one is AMAZING! It is so clean and fresh, with a touch of sweetness. I am really excited to melt it on a day that I deep clean.... whenever that day is? ;)
4. Wild Island Fruit- I have talked about his scent before! I MUST love it! ;) In fact, I just bought my 4th block of it! It almost has a sour smell, not like sour milk, but like lip-puckering-fruit-sour.OH I love it! It makes me want to make a (virgin) Margarita, sit on my porch swing and boss around the pool boy I don't have, for the pool... that I don't have.
5. Guava Berry- I can't quite pin point what this one smells like, it's almost like a really yummy berry type soap. I am really looking forward to seeing if this one melts the same scent as it smells in the box, if it does, I know I'll love it!
Happy Smelling!

I need to stock up! I buy mine at Wally World too. You know what's funny? I L.O.V.E the smell of chlorine!!!!!!!!!!! And wet pavement? Wet dirt... I'm weird. I told the chlorine thing to Sammi the other day and she was like "?" Haha.

These are a great idea. I've never seen these at Walmrt and I buy candles there all the time. I will look next time, probably today. Thanks.

Walmart also has free shipping site-to-store so if you find them online, you can pick them up at your local walmart ... saves time and gas money and you'll probably pay less than the prices in the stores!

Of course my Scentsy rep told me the walmart blocks will ruin my warmer.... I'm so glad you posted about this because I'm going to be a rule breaker and get some! I love your site!

in regards to the above comment about walmart scent cubes ruining your scentsy warmer....NO THEY WILL NOT!!!

I am a Scentsy consultant and shhhhh- I even make my own cubes with Bath and Body works candles melted down!

They only thing I have noticed is that the Scentsy warmers are made a little better and they melt wax slower. What will happen is if you use a Walmart warmer with Scentsy burns at a differnt wattage and maybe smell burnt if you leave it on for hours at a time!!!

Great post!!!

I love the smell of chlorine too. And, I love smelling like it when I get out of our pool! ;) You are so not weird!
