The Melt Crow Review – April 2016

Flamingo Candles The Melt Crowd April 2016

I am totally obsessed with my home smelling good, and have tried lots of different candles, scent warmers and infusers but I never seem to find the time to shop for good quality, naturally based home fragrance products, so I go through phases of relying on stuff I have either grabbed in a supermarket or a certain flat-packed furniture store that smell good, but aren’t necessarily as eco-friendly and organic as I’d like, so I decided that there must be a better solution!  Enter Flamingo Candles and their fabulous fragrance subscription – ‘The Melt Crowd’ – that contains eight amazing, hand-poured soy wax melts that are 100% natural, organic and full of powerful perfumes that will leave your house smelly delicious for days!

What’s in the Box?

Price Per Box – £10.00 including P&P

Total Value of Products – £18.95 (plus a free wax burner with your first box)

Each box contains eight delicious scented wax melts and although the individual fragrances will be a surprise they’ll include a combination of old favourites, current scents, new yet-to-be launched scents as well as scents exclusive to ‘The Melt Crowd’.  This is my first box from ‘The Melt Crowd’ and I can’t wait to see exactly how good these wax melts smell!

Your Lifestyle Treats

This month’s box is full of the joys of Spring with five scents exclusive to ‘The Melt Crowd’ along with a preview scent from Flamingo Candle’s new WILD Collection which won’t be available to purchase individually until later this month.  With all the scents having a Spring feel to them, ‘The Melt Crowd’ have put together a great selection of fresh fragrances for April that include the aptly named April Showers, Spring Bloom, English Pear and Freesia and Sparkling Diamonds – Diamond being the birthstone for April – along with the delicious sounding Dewberry from Flamingo Candle’s exciting new 90’s inspired WILD Collection and the mouth-watering melting scents of Sweet Peanuts, Strawberry Cream Tea and Raspberry and Salted Caramel!  Yum!

It was hard to know where to start with such a fantastic selection of scents but being a teenager during the 90’s – Wow! That makes me feel old! – I was extremely excited to see the familiar fragrance of Dewberry in my first Melt Crowd box and the fact that it is a preview fragrance made it my immediate first choice and I wasn’t disappointed!  It smelt just like I remember the perfume from back in the day and the fragrance filled the entire downstairs of my house with a fresh, fruity zing that made me feel thirteen all over again!

All ‘The Melt Crowd’ wax melts are made from 100% soy wax and give up to 30 hours of amazing fragrance, and with eight wax melts in each monthly box ‘The Melt Crowd’ provide more than enough melts to keep your home smelling sensational all month long!  There melts are best used in a traditional wax burner, but they can also be used in electric warmers too making them super versatile and easy to use and with less chemicals than paraffin based candles and melts, these beautiful, hand-poured melts are the perfect choice for the more health conscious scent seeker and what’s more every melt is made in the UK too!

Bonus Treats

When you first become a member of ‘The Melt Crowd’ you will receive a free wax burner to ensure you’re fully ready to explore our amazing scents included in monthly boxes which is an amazing little treat and a lovely way to welcome new subscribers.

I received a pretty white ceramic warmer that is suitable for both traditional oils and wax melts, and it fits perfectly with my home’s current decoration!

My Verdict

I have LOVED my first box from ‘The Melt Crowd’ – its been a real pleasure from the initial box opening, right through to actually using the melts themselves.  Each melt has a unique fragrance and the box’s Spring theme is the perfect fit for this time of year!  I love that the exclusive melts have Spring inspired names, and that I was able to preview one of their amazing new WILD Collection fragrances before they become available to the public.  This makes you feel like a Melt Crowd insider, with V.I.P access to all the latest releases and with a new 20% discount code to use on the Flamingo Candles website with every box too, you’ll feel well and truly spoiled by ‘The Melt Crowd’ team!  The variety of fragrances is amazing, they give you everything from fresh, fruity flavours, to heady florals and moreish, dessert inspired scents so what ever fragrance you like –  ‘The Melt Crowd’ have got it covered!  The variety in my box was perfect, and offered me a good mix to begin my Melt Crowd journey.  They are great quality melts, much better than previous soy and paraffin wax melts I have tried and the fragrances are long-lasting and just strong enough to fill your home with fragrance without being overpowering or unpleasant.  The presentation of every box is beautiful, and each hand-poured melt is individually wrapped making them not only smell amazing but look amazing too!  I love that when you join ‘The Melt Crowd’ they not only provide you with amazing value wax melts every month but you’ll also get a free wax burner to ensure you’re all set up and ready to use your first set of melts.  With post and packing included in your monthly subscription cost, every box is fantastic value for money and as every box, with the exception of your first box, fits neatly through your letter box, you’ll never have to worry about missing a Melt Crowd delivery either!  Over all I think that ‘The Melt Crowd’ is an amazing idea and I am loving my April Box!  I can’t wait to see what my next box brings and will continue to enjoy my monthly Melt Crowd subscription!  Many Thanks Flamingo Candles – What an amazing idea you’ve introduced me to!

My April Favourite

Although I did adore the delicious fragrance of 90’s legend, Dewberry, my favourite fragrance from my April Melt Crowd Box was definitely Strawberry Cream Tea!  It’s deliciously fruity fragrance was mouth-watering and the combination of juicy strawberries, rich cream and a hint of refreshing sweet tea made it a pleasure to use!  It was strong enough to fill my home with its tempting and tasty fragrance, but subtle enough not to be over powering or heady meaning even my husband didn’t complain that the house smelt too girly for once!
