November Melt Crowd

The November edition of The Melt Crowd is a good one and as always, I'm very impressed with the box. They have definitely developed more of a theme as they establish the box, which is better in my opinion and this one focuses on Christmas-y scents that make your home feel cosy and festive. However, to say it's November, I expected more scents that are spice based and festive. In this box, there are three A/W scents that are obvious, whereas the other ones are more everyday scents. Now, I'm not complaining about this because I like every single scent in the box, which is new for me and I can see me using all of them and not giving any away.

In this box we have:

Violet & Lime: A lovely fruity/floral scent that smells like a parma violet cocktail. Mmm, somebody please make that?

Warm Vanilla Sugar: Oh my gosh, this is the picture of a winter night in watching a film all cuddled up with some hot chocolate. It's sweet, warm and perfect.

Parma Violets: This will be forever be one of my favourite candle scents. I love the sweets and I love the scent.

Blackcurrant Jam: This one is an autumny scent to me and you can really smell the berries in it. This one didn't have a powerful scent throw but it did make the room smell faintly like blackcurrant boiled sweets.

Bah! Humbug: If you melted down a humbug sweet, it would be this. It's very minty and sweet, exactly like the boiled sweet. It's lovely & although I don't associate humbugs with winter, I think it's a great idea.

Blackberry & Bay Leaf: This is fruity and herbal and I'm very impressed with it. The initial impression is very fruity and it takes a couple of sniffs, lol, to get the bay leaf through. I find this one quite enjoyable and it's not so overly fruity that my boyfriend will complain when I burn it in his room.

Darjeeling Tea: I'll be honest and say I have no idea what this tea is and what it's supposed to smell like so I have no real life representation of the smell. However, this one is pleasant and quite a neutral scent. If you like scents like cotton, fresh towels or fresh linen, you'll be a fan of this.

Christmas Tree-O: Mmm this one is very festive & smells like spicy mulled wine around a bonfire. It's not exactly what I envisage from a bright pink wax melt but it's lovely none the less.

This box was very A/W based and so I'm very excited for next months box to be full of Christmas scents and goodies. At the moment, Flamingo Candles have their Christmas stock out and I'm going to take advantage of my 20% discount that you get with a Melt Crowd box. I love these wax melts and they're such good quality. Getting 8 in a box really does keep you stocked for the whole month and I still have some from last month because the scent throw is that good that I can keep reburning them without the scent running out. 

If you're interested in getting The Melt Crowd, it's available for £10 a month here. What's your favourite A/W scent? 

Til' next time! XOXO
