The Melt Crowd Unboxing: March 2016

While I was quite disappointed with the box for February, I was definitely not disappointed with the box for March. March has a lot in it this month with Mother's Day and Easter and so I was hoping that there would a lot about that. I wasn't wrong.

There were a lot of "Spring" themed scents and also loads that were just The Melt Crowd exclusives which made me giddy, like the candle loving weirdo I am. 

Spring Break - If there was one thing I hope they start to include for this it would be a description of the scents. Oh yeah, this totally smells like underage drinking and sex, that's spring break, right? Nope, it smells floral and fruity. What fruit and what flowers you ask? I don't know because it doesn't tell me and is a Melt Crowd Preview so isn't even bloody available on their website yet!

Ylang Yland & Bergamot Essential Oils: This is part of their new B.A.R.E. range and I had a bad experience with one of the other ones where it made me choke, but the other one smelt like Lush, so I was apprehensive about smelling this one. The best way I could describe it is if you go into a "crystal/herbal" shop where they sell like sage and things to heal your aura. It smells like that.

Spearmint: This will always be my favourite smell. Spearmint reminds me of spearmint chews and it is just such a nice scent. This is subtle and I can't wait to burn it. I also want to go and get some spearmint chews right about now (funk soul brother).

Bunny Kisses - This one is actually available on their website and it is their Easter scent. It is described as "juicy rhubarb and creamy caramel vanilla custard" which it definitely smells like. I love rhubarb but I find this one is quite overwhelmed by the vanilla and the rhubarb doesn't come through enough. Hopefully, it will come through more once it is burned.

French Lime Blossom - This must be a new one too. It's fruity and citrussy with the lime but also quite floral. I like it, but it's not my favourite.

Mango & Dragonfruit - What does dragonfruit smell like? It's nice and fruity though and the mango comes through quite strong.

Easter Egg - Pure chocolate. This just smells like pure chocolate and although that might be alright for some, it's sickly to me. This is definitely the designated Sam melt of the box.

Very Vanilla - This smells exactly like the Vanilla Cupcake wax melt from Yankee Candle which isn't something I normally like but after getting Christmas Cookie for Christmas, I've been obsessed with sweet vanilla scents. This one was strong & the only one I've burnt so far from the box. I cut it in half and put it in a burner upstairs and one downstairs and damn my house smelt sweet. Again, another sickly one!

Candy Floss - I don't know why this one was included in my box, but it was just chucked in there. It doesn't smell exactly like candyfloss, which is basically just sugar but it is sweet and sugary, so there you go. There isn't much to say about this one as it just doesn't have a strong smell at all. Perfect for those who like sweet smells, but don't like as sweet as Very Vanilla.

Overall, I'm really impressed with this box and I'm glad I stuck around with The Melt Crowd at least for another month. I also subscribed to Candle Belles subscription box and will be reviewing that next week. I think I might actually do a side by side comparison next month. I don't think it's very wise to keep buying two wax melt subscription boxes, well that's what the boyfriend says anyway but what does he know? 

What would be your favourite scent? You can subscribe to The Melt Crowd for £10 a month.

Til' next time! XOXO
