First things first, I know I’m not American – I said Fall because it sounded better for the title; sorry, not sorry.
Secondly – I received the most amazing package from Melia May Candles and I’d like to share the love with you all. Some of you may have seen the unboxing on my Instagram stories @beffshuff (shameless plug), you should follow me if you want some behind the scenes, sneak peak insights as to what I may be reviewing.
Melia May specialises in soy wax melts and candles. They’ve been up and running for a month and have some gorgeous products on the site right now. My favourite has to be the white chocolate raspberry truffle snap bar – it looks like you could eat it. 100% ordering myself one (or five!)
In my little goodie box I received one candle and five packs of melts, each containing four melts. Opening the box was like having a Lush store in my bedroom. So many gorgeous fragrances escaped out of the box and into my room. The candle was Pumpkin Pie scent from the Autumn Collection and oh my. It smells incredible! I’m going to be using this as a blog prop (you may have already noticed this and a few melts in my new autumnal blog header!). The scent is so strong, I don’t need to burn it, however it has an estimated burn time of 30-35 hours! Pumpkin, caramel, sugar – this candle is super sweet and will make your room feel super cosy.
The fives scents I received in the wax melts were Pumpkin Spice Latte (Starbucks, eat your heart out), Pomegranate Cider, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, Bubblegum and Bakewell Tart. So far, I’ve burned Pumpkin Spice Latte which smells so Christmassy and the Bakewell Tart which is very cherry and almond-y. They come in cute little heart shapes and sprinkled with glitter – don’t get that at Yankee Candle, do ya?
The wax melts are priced at £1.70 a pack which is so affordable – it’s less than 50p a melt! Then the candles are £6, a fraction of Jo Malone and Yankee with beautiful rich scents.
Keep an eye out on @meliamaycandles on Instagram for discount deals; these will make the perfect Christmas gift or just a little treat for yourself.
