The Melt Crowd ‘Sugar & Spice’ Box Review – October 2016

The Melt Crowd 'Sugar & Spice' Box Review - October 2016


October has landed which means it’s officially Autumn and as the nights are getting longer (and colder) and the sunshine begins to fade, we have a whole new list of things to look forward to and one of those would be this months box from The Melt Crowd and its fabulous Halloween inspired theme!  Created in especially for Brest Cancer Awareness Month, October’s Box is helping raise funds for this fantastic cause by donating £2.00 from every box sold Special Edition Box going to the Pink Ribbon Foundation and its amazing work ensuring that woman who are effected by breast cancer don’t have to go through their fight alone and provide essential support and financial assistance to charities such as MacMillan Cancer Support and The Primrose Trust.  With a delicious selection of sweet candies, juicy fruits, fragrant florals and warm spices – October’s Melt Crowd Box is smelling as delicious as ever and I cant wait to start exploring the fabulous fragrances that Flamingo Candles have chosen this month!

What’s in the Box?

Price Per Box – £10.00 including P&P

Total Value of Products – £18.95 including a £2.00 Donation to the Pink Ribbon Foundation

My monthly box from The Melt Crowd is always a well received but this months ‘Sugar v Spice’ Halloween inspired edition of Flamingo Candles’ monthly melt subscription smells especially good and I love the sweet theme as it fits beautifully with Halloween – all the trick or treat style scents are great – and also pays a perfect homage to Breast Cancer Awareness Month at the same time making this months box extra special as it is helping support a fantastic charity – the Pink Ribbon Foundation – that supports woman through out their fight with Breast Cancer!

Your Lifestyle Treats

October’s Special Edition ‘Sugar v Spice’ Box has a delicious smelling scent selection that includes fresh fruity fragrances, sweet sugary spices and mouth-watering melts and with most being Exclusive to The Melt Crowd – you’re in for a real treat, no tricks involved!  This months Melts include a whopping six scents Exclusive to The Melt Crowd – Cherry Sundae, Candy Floss & Pear Drops Duo, Salted Caramel Apple, Buttered Rum, Sweet Tobacco and Pumpkin & Walnut, a Flamingo Candles Favourite – Oriental Lotus & Rose Otto, along with their Special Edition Pink Ribbon Melt which reflects the fact that £2.00 from each October Melt Crowd Box is being donated to the Pink Ribbon Foundation!  I love this collaboration as it is not only an amazing box – it is also helping raise money for an amazing cause too, so I cant wait to open my box and decide which scent to start with, especially as it is my birthday soon and I need to decide which scent to fill my house with as I am enjoying a relaxing ‘do nothing’ day with a box a chocolates and a glass of fizz!

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! Their 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 United Kingdom too!

Bonus Treats

There’s no ‘Bonus Melt’ in this month’s box but as they are donating £2.00 from every box to the Pink Ribbon Foundation this counts as a huge bonus for me as they are a very worthy and deserving cause and deserve every penny donated to them!  But as well as that REMEMBER……..

Perfect!

My Verdict

I have been looking forward to this box arriving ever since Flamingo Candles announced their Special Edition Sugar v Spice Box in late September, so when it finally hit my door mat I was more than a little excited!  The fragrances hit me straight away with out even opening the box which is always a good sign and when I did open the box, the bold packaging and selection instantly impressed me!  I love the theme as it fits perfectly with October and Halloween, and the delicious ‘Sugar v Spice’ selection is the fragrance equivalent of Trick or Treating but on this occasion you’re getting treats from every door you knock on!  I love the sweet smelling candy and floral fragrances and the darker, spiced scents and with all but two of them being exclusive to The Melt Crowd you are really being treated this month!  Each melt smells amazing and together make up the most mouth-watering of Melt Crowd boxes and the fact that £2.00 from every subscription box sold this month going to help the Pink Ribbon Foundation you’re also helping support woman across the UK fight against Breast Cancer too!

I could go on and on about how much I adore this months pretty pink and black box for another paragraph (or more….) but I am choosing to ask you all to take a look at the Pink Ribbon Foundation website instead – something which I am sure Flamingo Candles won’t mind – and if you can make a donation or visit their online store and do as much as you can to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October as your donations really can make a huge difference to charities like MacMillan Cancer Support, The Primrose Centre, BosomBuddies and St Clare’s Hospice!  Having had friends and family who have battled all types of cancer during their lives – this really is a fantastic charity to support if you can and helping the wonderful MacMillan Nurses, or providing essential hospice care to those who need it most is so important to helping both people with Cancer and their families get through the hardest time of their lives with a little more comfort and care!  So while I love my October Box from The Melt Crowd – I love that it supports the Pink Ribbon Foundation even more!

My October Favourite

Although I loved the Cherry Sundae and Oriental Lotus & Rose Otto Melts – My October Favourite has to be the Special Edition Pink Ribbon Melt as has been created for such a fantastic cause and it also smells amazing too!  I would urge everyone to have a look at the Flamingo Candles website this month and splash out on the matching Jar Candle to help support the Pink Ribbon Foundation or make a donation directly to this fabulous charity on their website as they provide essential support and assistance to breast cancer charities across the UK making them a wonderful charity to back this October!
