As you probably already know, I absolutely love a good smelling candle or wax melt, so when Pick ‘N’ Melt asked if I would like to try out a few melts from their Christmas collection, I of course said yes. Well, i’ve been burning them for quite while now, and I thought it was about time that I told you what I thought of them.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Pick ‘N’ Melt are a Hampshire based candle company, who use natural sustainable Soy wax, to create wax melt cubes that you can mix and match to create your own unique fragrance. The wax comes in 1cm by 1cm by 1cm cubes, and are available in over 250 scents, from the more traditional like Clean Cotton, Cherry, and Sweet Pea, to the more unusual like Shortbread, Leather Cream, and Cannabis. Each scent is also available in three sizes, small, 6 cubes, which is priced at 6p a melt, and is presented in a small plastic bag, medium, 24 melts, which is priced at 8p a melt, and comes presented in a small plastic bag, and large, 140 melts, which is priced at 5p a melt, and is presented in a tin.
Pick ‘N’ Melt also offer a range of luxury Soy wax candles, that are also available in over 250 scents, contain a pure Cotton wick, are presented in a beautiful tin, and can be burnt for up to 50 hours.
As well as offering a wide range of wax melt cubes and candles, they also offer a subscription service, the Pick ‘N’ Melt Party Box . This is available in two sizes, and comes with a Pick ‘N’ Melt branded melt warmer, and free postage and packaging. The standard box, is priced at £8 a month, and contains 120 cube melts, which is made up of 18 small bags of melts in six different scent choices, and two random guest bags, and the supreme box, which is priced at £12 a month, contains 198 melt cubes, which is made up of 30 small bags of cube melts, in ten scent choices, and three guest bags.
Pick ‘N’ Melt very kindly sent me one of their branded melt warmers, a Soy wax tea light, and sixteen of their small melt cube bags, in eight gorgeous scents, that included, Christmas Spice, Festive Tree, Robin Redbreast, Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine, Cocoa and Log Fire, Snow, and Frankincense and Myrrh.
I absolutely loved their melt warmer, as it was such a unique shape and size. Most of the melt warmers that I own are either circular or small, but this was massive and square, so it was a great addition to my growing collection. I don’t think i’ve ever come across a square melt warmer, but I loved it.
The added Soy wax candle was a great addition, as i’m always searching for a tea light whenever I want to light a wax melt, so having this included was fantastic. The tea light itself was also great, as it burnt for about 4 hours, which for a tea light was a nice burn time.
Christmas Spice, was as it’s name suggests, full of Christmas spice, and really reminded me of a cup of Mumbai Chai tea.
Christmas Tree, was incredibly fresh, and really reminded me of when you go shopping for a real Christmas Tree, as it was earthy, whilst still being extremely fresh.
Robin Redbreast, wasn’t my favourite scent, as it was a little like someone had dipped a bunch of flowers, in a bag full of spices. It was nice, but the floral notes just weren’t for me.
Christmas Time, was one of my favourites, as the Lavender notes were great for when I wanted to relax, and have an early night.
Mistletoe and Wine, was another one of my favourites, as I just loved all of it’s fruity notes, and the earthy notes just made the fruity notes even stronger.
Cocoa and Log Fire, kind of threw me, as I was expecting it to smell quite chocolaty, but It actually smelt quite masculine, with just a touch of Cinnamon. If you can imagine a spicy mens cologne, then that’s basically what it smelt like .
Snow, was actually quite masculine and full of citrus notes. I was kind of expecting it to smell quite fresh and clean, but I think that the citrus notes made me love it, the more I smelt it.
Frankincense and Myrrh, was nice, but it wasn’t one of my favourites. It’s just a personal thing, as I can’t stand the smell of Frankincense. I do however, love the smell of Myrrh, as I think that it’s subtile scent is incredibly festive. Myrrh also strangely reminds me of when I used to have to attend the Christmas service in Primary school.
All of these gorgeous scents had a nice scent throw, but it wasn’t as strong as I would have liked. They did however fill my room with a nice subtile scent, within about fifteen minutes, which was awesome.
The thing that I really liked about Pick ‘N’ Melt wax melts, was that you could mix different scents together to create a whole other scent. I did it with Christmas Tree, Snow, and Cocoa and Log Fire, and it created a gorgeous scent, that really reminded me of sitting by a fire in a log cabin, drinking a nice hot drink, while people are skiing outside in the fresh Pine air.
Overall I would have to rate the Pick ‘N’ Melt Christmas collection, an eight point five out of ten. I loved the shape and design of their melt warmer, and think that they included a nice range of Christmas scents, as there’s something for everyone, wether you like fruity, floral, spicy, masculine, or fresh scents. I also think that the scent throw could have been a little stronger, but you’re supposed to mix and match the scents, so if the scent throw was super strong, one scent would probably overpower the other.
If you would like to check out either the Pick ‘N’ Melt Christmas collection, their range of over 250 scents, their candles, or their party subscription box for yourself, then you can find Pick ‘N’ Melt online here.
