The Melt Crowd: Valentine's Edition

The best boxes with The Melt Crowd are usually the ones where they have a theme. Their Christmas boxes were great and so I had high hopes for this Valentines box and I think my high expectations might be why I am quite disappointed with this box. For one, I didn't even get the card that tells you what you get in the box and there is no obvious theme to me anyway. There are a few valentines type melts in and then some randoms like they usually do.

In this box we have:

Rose: Obviously, roses are associated with Valentine's and this smells exactly like rose scents usually do. Now, I really don't like rose scents, I think they end up being too powdery and fake with this one being no exception.

Cherry Slush: Not really anything to do with Valentine's but it's a nice scent anyway, I like this one much more than the previous circus flavour they sent in one of these boxes, which was Doughnuts and pretty gross. This one is very sweet and fruity.

Espresso: I don't necessarily have strong feelings towards coffee scented things. I don't dislike them, but I definitely wouldn't pick one by choice. That being said, I do really enjoy their mocha one as it has vanilla and chocolate in it too making it sweet, whereas this one is just plain old coffee. Good if you want to make your home smell like Starbucks.

Pink Lemonade: I really feel like I've had this melt before, but I might be wrong. This one is sweet and quite citrusy. I never got pink lemonade, is is just lemonade with food colouring? Pointless, but a nice scent.

Acai Berry: This one is very strong when you stick it under your nose. It's not strong in a good way either it's that type of strong that makes you choke and wheeze. I don't like it really and I can't really describe the scent. It's berry-like in a sense but also floral like.

Kir Royale Cocktail: The Flamingo Candle website describes this as a typical "creme de cassis" scent and me, being the clueless boob I am, have no idea what that means. Google tells me that it's a liquer made with blackcurrants, so I guess it smells like that.

Bamboo & White Grapefruit: I really love grapefruit scents, but bamboo seems like a weird addition to this. It really takes away from the grapefruit scent and adds a sort of grassy scent to it. I think this might be nice when burning, though, nice and fresh.

Love Bug Hearts: These are a cute idea and are described as strawberry sherbert scents. They do have a slight strawberry scent but also again, floral. Everything is so floral, but I don't know if that's the scent rubbed off from the others or what. They also have the espresso rubbed off on them aswell. That's the only thing with these boxes, you have to rip the paper off to get a proper smell of the scents as the stronger ones rub off one the lighter ones.

Overall, I am quite disappointed with this box. There are quite a lot of scents I don't rate and definitely don't have one that I'm super excited about like I usually do. However, it doesn't change my mind about The Melt Crowd box as a whole and I'm definitely going to keep subscribing to it. For only £10 I do think it's a good deal. I also end up giving some to my brothers girlfriend and take it to Sams. Which do you think you'd like the most?

Til' next time! XOXO
