Melt Scented Candles

Hi dolls,

I hope you are all ok! I don't think I have spoke about my love of candles before on my blog so here is my perfect opportunity to do so. Now that the nights are darker and colder there is nothing I enjoy more than getting in my comfy's snuggled on the sofa with a glass of wine and a few candles lit in the living room.

Melt scented candles are very popular within the UK amongst celebrities and have been recently used in the X-Factor judges in their dressing rooms. Their scented candles are fragranced in order to intoxicate the senses, and come in a vast array of smells.

Melt Candles* in Saddle, Angel and Eden

The candles are handmade in the UK and each take 36 hours to make to ensure that they are beautifully fragranced. The site states that their burning time ranges from 22 to 70 hours depending on the size of the candle. What I like about these is that they not only host a wide range of smells but also candle size, varying from travel sizes to tall and fat.  

I received Saddle in the luxury glass jar, and the scent is a mixture of: lavender, geranium, rose, lily, sandal, cedar, musk, moss, amber and patchouli. I absolutely adore the smell of this one, it fills the room up quite quickly but not to the stage where it becomes overpowering. It reminds me of the winter with the musky smell, and even when the candle is unlit the smell stays in the room for a good hour. 

I adore the glass jar that this comes in, it not only saves the need for buying a candle holder but can be used once the candle is finished. One side is decorated with a small pattern whilst the other is branded with the company name. 

This bigger candle is set to last around 70 hours and retails at £21, which considering how pretty it looks is a bargain as I was honestly expecting a higher retail price. I also think this would make a great xmas present for any candle lover. 

Angel is classed as a travel candle in its tin and is described as a mix of: dewberry, cassis, jasmine, rose, vanilla, patchouli, amber and a hint of chocolate. This is probably my favourite candle out of the two and is perfect for Christmas! Once again the smell isn't too overpowering but leaves the room smelling gorgeous. I've been using this one for my room to brighten it up a bit and can see this being repurchased in the jar size. 

This size is set to last around 20 hours and retails at £7.50, so again I feel that this is a bargain.

Lastly, Eden is classed as a room scenter and is a mixture of: herbs, spices, precious woods and fig. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this scent but really do, it's smells very outdoorsy and mixes perfectly with Sandle. I quite like the size of this one as it can be placed around the house as it makes a cute little decoration, I think this size would be perfect for the bathroom!

This sized candle is set to last around 25 hours and retails at £8.

Since trying this range out, I have really fallen in love with it. I think sometimes you can spend a fortune trying to find those candles that smell just right and are perfect for around the home. However I will find myself trying out a few more from this range and can really understand why they are loved so much in the UK.

Have you ever tried these out before? What are some of your favourite candles?
