Last month when shopping in my local wilkos I came across the most adorable little ceramic oil burner in the shape of an owl. I instantly knew he had to be mine, but seeing as I had never used a wax burner before I wasn’t really sure where to get any nice wax melts from. Thankfully my prayers were answered one day when I was scrolling down Instagram and I stumbled upon Scent Circus who just happen to be vegan friendly and cruelty free as well as all their items being handmade from Eco Soy wax which make’s these little wax melts environmentally friendly. If that wasn’t cool enough they also carry an Alice in Wonderland and a Disney themed range! I opted for the latter as Disney practically runs through my veins.
I decided to buy five wax melts all based on my favourite films as well as the fragrances that sounded like they would be the nicest from the range, however if truth be told I could have went wild and purchased a lot more!
Up and Away was the first to hit my basket seeing as it is UP inspired and is Grape Soda scented. The colours are a lot more vivid in real life compared to how they are shown on the website, and this fruity scent makes the entire house smell amazing whilst it is burning. It also isn’t a typical ‘night time’ scent meaning that even know it smells wonderful and relaxes you on an evening, you can also pop this during the day just to make your home smell nice.
Colours of the Wind was also added to my basket without a second thought. This wax melt has a light floral and woody fragrance to it with hints of patchouli and if truth be told it was the mention of patchouli that drew me in. Not only does it smell amazing and incredibly relaxing it also looks visually stunning, again the colours in real life are way more stunning than those shown on scent circus website, and it gives off a total Autumnal theme.
Fit for a Princess is quite possibly my favourite wax melt that I ordered! This little beauty is scented with lavender and chamomile and literally knocks me out to sleep! I honestly burn it for around 20 minutes per night before bed, blow the candle out and then I know very little until the next morning. It is fantastic!
A Touch of Magic is probably the only wax melt I wasn’t sure on whilst adding it to my basket. It looked visually beautiful with its ivory colouring and silver luster but I wasn’t at all that sure if I would like the white amber, fresh strawberries, jasmine and sandalwood scent combo however I needn’t have worried. This wax melt has a ‘clean’ fragrance about it, like that of freshly washed bed sheets and again is another one that is not just limited to evening use. I also assume that this is Cinderella themed as it is given me total fairy godmother vibes with the magic wand and stars imagery.
Lastly we have Kiss the Girl which I kind of messed up with. All the other wax melts listed cost £1.60 and to be honest you get a canny sized bar for your money. However, in my excitement of being swept away with all the amazing sounding products I ended up splurging £4.50 on this little mermaid themed bar without even realising. Oops. To be fair though this bar is about 4 times the size as all the other melts, however I don’t think it looks as appealing in real life as it did online but that’s just my first world problems and if truth be told it smells amazing! It has a very ‘clean’ fragrance about it but not in the same way that A Touch of Magic does. No, this bar smells more like the seaside and sea salt filled air clean rather than clean bed sheets and it has subtle notes of citrus, jasmine and lavender as well as having woody notes making this bar quite unique and wonderful smelling.
On top of all of these amazing products, the packaging of the box was adorable. It was quite thin meaning it was easy to post through the letter box, and inside the package contents were wrapped in branded tissue paper that give off an old circus style vibe. Inside all of the wax melts were safely wrapped and was surrounded by colourful confetti as well as a Scent Circus admission style ticket that stated if you collect 10 tickets you get a free melt box. It is safe to say I will keep that safe as I will be ordering from scent circus again in the near future.
