I wasn't sure about this wax melt when I first smelled it, I kept smelling it before melting it though, trying to pick apart the different components that made up the scent! There would just be a subtle tone of a wood fire smoke smell, underneath a sweetness. Once I had it melting, I loved it! Not "in your face" strong, but still fills a room nicely and with a comfortable and cozy smell. It is lovely for fall/winter, but I think it is versatile enough for any season!
