Wax melts are growing exponentially in popularity. The fragrances they give off can make your home smell amazing and they are usually much safer than burning traditional candles. However, some wax melts begin to lose their smell quite quickly. To help you get the most out of your melts, I have compiled a list of the wax melts that last the longest.

To help determine the longest-lasting melts, I looked at burn time, the strength of the fragrances and the quality of the ingredients.  Let’s take a look.

which wax melts last the longest


Scentsy uses high-quality paraffin wax for a longer-lasting fragrance. The scent bars are made up of eight cubes that you melt individually. Each cube costs roughly 75 cents – $1 and burns for about eight hours. There are many scents available, including Cinnamon Vanilla, French Lavender, Coconut Cotton, and Strawberry Rose.

Yankee Candle Wax Melts

Yankee Candle claims to make one of the strongest smelling wax melts. One of the biggest advantages of these wax melts is the fact that the smell lasts for a long time after you have stopped burning it. They usually last for eight hours and are available in a variety of flavors, including Lilac Blossom, Beach Escapes, Coconut Island, and Midsummer’s Night. In fact, Yankee Candle has more than 75 different scents for you to choose from!

Febreeze Unstopables Wax Melts

These wax melts offer double the scent power and hours upon hours of fragrance in your home. One of the stand-out features of Febreeze wax melts is that they don’t just make your home smell nice, they also freshen up the air in your home and eliminate any bad smells, resulting in a nicer smelling home even when you are no longer burning the wax melts.

Farm Raised Wax Melts – Fall Spice

Although these wax melts may be designed specifically for fall, I couldn’t resist including them on the list. This five-pack wax melt comes with traditional fall flavors – Fall Spice, Home Sweet Home, Cinnamon Caramel Swirl, Pecan Waffles, and Sugar & Spice. These wax melts are great for those looking for a more environmentally friendly product as they are made with 100% natural soy wax and essential oils. The scents are long-lasting and have an impressive burn time – a 2.5oz wax melt has an approximate burn time of 30 hours.

Happy Wax

Happy Wax Melts are also made using 100% natural soy wax and essential oils. All of their products are paraffin, paraben, and phthalate-free. Shaped like tiny gummy bears, they are available in 2oz, 3.6oz, and 8oz quantities. Two of the bears have an approximate burn time of eight hours. The scents are strong so the smell will last long after you turn off your burner. There are hundreds of different scents available, including Vanilla Sandalwood, Calming Lavender, Caramel Macchiato, and Fresh Cotton.
