The 7 All-Time Best Bathroom Scents

The bathroom is undoubtedly one of the most frequently used rooms in any home. With all of the grooming, relieving, and relaxing, we do daily, the bathroom is also a space in need of extra cleaning and scented support. Thankfully, fresh, clean, and aromatherapeutic scented wax melts are our specialty!


Read on to discover the best way to scent bathrooms with seven of our most satisfyingly fresh aromatherapeutic wax melts, all designed to lift your spirits and refresh your loo, whether it’s strictly for business or doubles as your stress-relieving sanctuary.

7 Best Bathroom Scents

When it comes to choosing the best bathroom scents for powder rooms of any size, we recommend avoiding anything with heavy, musky, or spicy smells. These bold aromatics can make certain smells stand out more (especially in smaller bathrooms) and make it difficult to achieve the light, fresh, and spa-like reprieve you want your space to emulate. The best bathroom scents are those that will counteract stinky odors while making you or your guests feel welcome. Here are the seven perfect scents for doing just that.

  1. Lemon Verbena

    Nothing says clean like the fresh scent of lemon, which is what makes the Lemon Verbena wax melts so perfect. With a touch of light, clean, and bright lemon mixed together with the sweet aroma of verbena and vanilla, these best-selling wax melts offer the cheerful and sunny scent you crave during the day, no matter what the weather looks like outside.

  2. Eucalyptus Spearmint


    Both soothing and invigorating, Eucalyptus Spearmint wax melts are the perfect spa-like scent for powder rooms and master baths alike. Infused with spearmint and peppermint essential oils, this aromatherapeutic mixture is the best way to top off a deep clean, or set the stage for a night of sudsy relaxation in your soaking tub. Enjoy refreshing notes of mint leaf, clean wood, green, citrus and herbal essential oils melting away in paraben-free wax.

  3. Calming Lavender

    Would an at-home spa night really be complete without Calming Lavender wax melts? We think not! Infused with natural essential oils like lavender, bergamot, and aromatic garden herbs like thyme, clove, and rosemary, Calming Lavender wax melts yield a luxuriously soothing fragrance ideal for those who bask in the aroma of fresh lavender fields, or find relaxation in classic aromatherapeutic fragrances.

  4. Coastal Tide

    If your home away from home is somewhere along the coast, then fresh and summery Coastal Tide wax melts are the perfect bathroom pick-me-up for you. Crafted with notes of island hibiscus, tropical citrus, lush papaya, salted guava, pure tonka bean and windswept driftwood, Coastal Tide wax melts are an excellent choice to help get you through the winter months while looking forward to the sunny oceanside days to come.

  5. Lavender Chamomile


    Smell is a powerful sense. When done right, appealing to your sense of smell can help your mind and body relax and recharge after a long day or week. When you want to melt away the stress of the day at home, consider Lavender Chamomile wax melts a trusted choice to help you accomplish your stress-relieving goals.

    This soothing blend of chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender, orange, ginger, and cedarwood essential oils is loved by Happy Wax® customers who want to wind down before bed, or create a calm and welcoming bathroom space for guests.

  6. Fresh Cotton


    Before the days of flame-free wax warmers and scent-sational wax melts, one of the best ways to scent bathrooms was with freshly cleaned, warm cotton towels. Luckily these days you don’t have to rewash the bathroom linens just to make your powder room a clean cotton oasis, you just need a wax warmer kit and Fresh Cotton wax melts from Happy Wax®.

    Our Fresh Cotton wax melts blend together the best of classic cotton with a touch of floral and woodsy notes for a delicate yet natural smell customers love in powder rooms, nurseries, and other areas of the home you would like a light, fresh, clean scent.

  7. Magnolia Eucalyptus

    Nothing says spring has sprung like a freshly bloomed magnolia tree. When you want to bring this renewed feeling of freshness and vitality into the kids, master, or guest washroom, Magnolia Eucalyptus wax melts will not disappoint. Enjoy fresh, green notes of velvety magnolia, sugared lily, and silver eucalyptus blended together with fresh and clean powder for a soft, warm, and welcoming fragrance that will be most appreciated in bathrooms of any size.
