So I was soo excited to be very kindly sent this WaxBox*! I adore candles and melts – I seriously always have something burning to represent my mood! If I’m feeling nice and cosy with netflix and a fluffy blanket, I’ll have a sugary autumnal scent burning away (this is all year round by the way!) or if I’m feeling awake and alive (- rarely) it’ll be something deliciously fruity. WaxBox is basically a subscription candle box; and I really love subscription boxes just as much as candles! I just love being sent a surprise every single month, it’s like your birthday all year round! You can subscribe to WaxBox for £10 a month and you can cancel at any time.
You get mainly melts in your WaxBox – and this month I also received a frosted forest candle which seriously smells divine. It’s not actually comparable to anything else I’ve smelt, but it’s very fresh and sweet and just amazing. Nom.
The first melt I want to talk about is this baked apple wax melt. It is genuinely the most perfect autumnal scent – autumn in a whiff! I know I’ll be purchasing more of this melt in particular as it makes me feel so warm and cosy. (And Christmassy – which I am certainly not complaining about!)
Angels whisper – the white melt at the front of the picture, is so fresh and cottony – it’s really refreshing and will be perfect melting away when/if the last of the sun decides to show! The other melt shown here is raisin bread, which smells exactly that. Again, this will be melting away whilst under a big duvet and watching some Disney – wonderfully autumnal!
Finally, a melt to remind us of summer! This pomegranate melt is hand made in England and is beautifully fresh and fruity (if you didn’t already figure. 😉 ) I’m generally quite welcoming of the season changes as I really do get bored – I definitely couldn’t live in a place with the same weather all year round! That being said I know I’ll be melting this when I get a bit tired of the chillyness. (My house in autumn/winter and most of spring = a fridge. A giant, live-in fridge.)
Overall I absolutely LOVE WaxBox! This box is so perfectly themed to the beginning of Autumn and boasts some amazing brands. Lots of smaller and local brands have been used in WaxBox, and I think it is so important to help these businesses or the world will just be run by a few retail giants who own everything! Woo for entrepreneurs! You can subscribe to WaxBox here, and if you’re a fellow candle hoarder looking for new and exciting brands and scents, this is something I know you’ll love…
