Now this is a post that was supposed to go live a longgg time ago, the photos were prepped months ago and it completely slipped my mind. Now, I absolutely love candles, I'm completely and utterly besotted with them. There's rarely a time that you won't see one lit up in my lounge or bedroom. It gives off such a relaxing vibe, and of course has the added effect of making your house smell absolutely ahh-mazing.
I've gone through many a candle but there's one thing I've never really tried before, and that is wax melts. I don't know why, but I've never really took notice of them. That was until I became aware of Because I Love. They stock a range of hand made and hand poured soy wax scented melts, room fragrance sprays, reed diffusers and even oil burners too.
I was given the most wonderful opportunity to try five of their soy wax melts. I have *Coco Vanilla, *Coffee Creme Caramel, *Wishy Washy, *Figgy Fantastic and *Lemon Meringue Pie. Before I go any further, I must stress that I was sent them a few months ago, which may result in them being unavailable to purchase, although Figgy Fantastic is the only wax melt that I have noticed to be in stock. Apologies!
The soy wax melts came packaged within a medium sized paper bag, and within that bag the wax melts were individually wrapped in sealable plastic bags, to keep them fresh. Each of the wax melts also had sticky labels on the front with their names on with a cute red heart. Not all packaging has to be super fancy to impress. I like that it's quite 'raw', if that makes sense. After all they're all made by hand. Impressive right?
As you can tell, the majority of the Because I Love wax melts are in fact sweet scents, which may not be to all of your tastes. Coco Vanilla has to be my favourite of them all, with a combination of coco and vanilla, you can do no wrong. It has a fantastic scent throw off without being overwhelming. Even Josh enjoyed it. It made my lounge smell blooming amazing, and I really wish I could purchase this again. Where are you at cocovan? At this point I'm making a ridiculous sad emoji face. Ha, picture that.
One that I didn't expect to enjoy as much as I did was Coffee Creme Caramel. I absolutely hate coffee with a passion. Yes, I'm one of those people, I dislike the taste of it, and the smell of it. That's what threw me. Maybe it's the combination of the caramel with the coffee which did it for me.
Unfortunately there were two wax melts that I was a bit on the fence about and disliked. They came in the form of Wishy Washy and Figgy Fantastic. As much as I like the smell of freshly washed clothing, I just couldn't cope with how it smelled throughout my lounge. It's just not for me. Figgy Fantastic was one that confused the hell outta me, I didn't know if I liked it or not at first but soon came to a conclusion that it wasn't for me. Again, it gave off a strong scent throw off, a little too overwhelming for me perhaps. As for Lemon Meringue Pie, damn, it smells exactly as it should, good enough to eat. It smells very fresh and lemon-y, obviously. My house is left smelling like a bakery, literally. So gorgeous.
The Wax Melts are £1 each and you can take a look at the selection of scents here. I'm so sad they're not all available.
Have you tried the Because I Love Scented Wax Melts?
