Recently I’ve developed a little obsession with candles and wax melts, to the point where I’ll walk in a shop and smell every single one. So I was very excited when Simply Candles kindly sent me some of their soy wax melts to review. They generously sent me the selection pack which has 20 scents, so I could try them out and see which ones are my favourites. First of all, I really love the packaging, it’s very cute and would make an ideal gift for someone who loves their scents. I mean look at that ribbon!
It’s been about a week and I’m already half way through the bag so that says a lot about how much I’m loving them! The wax melts are quite small in size so naturally I didn’t expect them to give off a strong smell. I was SO wrong. I started burning the Fig and Cassis one in the living-room, and I’m not joking when I say I could smell it around the whole house. It’s the kind of scent that transports you outside and instantaneously feels like summer. But it’s not too overpowering either. On the website they recommend melting your melt for 10 – 30 minutes at at time so that way you can use it multiple times and really make the most out of the scent. And even after blowing out the tealight you still continue to smell it.
Honestly, considering the strength of fragrance and the price, these are brilliant. You can pick up a bag of 20 for £3 or you can select your own scents and get 6 soy wax melts for just£1! I recommend you have a look on their website here and see if anything tickles your fancy. If you’re stuck on which ones to try, then my favourites so far are Damson Plum, Rose & Patchouli, Fig and Cassis, Pink Champagne & Pomelo and Mediterraneo. These scents really make me feel all warm and relaxed. The best part is that each one is unique to fit whichever mood you are in. So if you’re under a lot of stress lately, light one of these while you’re in the bath with a glass of wine = heaven.
All in all, yes I will buy them in the near future! These wax melts are great for special occasions, if you’re having friends and family round, or if you just want to treat yourself. And for the price, well, have you ever seen a better offer? I have a feeling they are going to be very popular very soon, that’s all I can say.
