What I love about the world of wax melts/shapes/pots/bars is their versatility. Wax vendors across the UK ( and I’m sure abroad too ) have some amazing scents and such a huge variety it means those who love wax and buy it are spoilt for choice. One of my latest purchases from Strawberry Wax Melts is the invitingly named Rhubarb Rose Dove which has been melting away in my home recently.
Why Rhubarb Rose Dove as a scent? I chose this because I’ve had Rhubarb Rose and Dove separately in wax melts in the past, love the scents and thought surely this must be a wax marriage in heaven?
Appearance. These melts came in a pack of three. Each a good size which could individually be popped into a warmer with one piece being sufficient for one use. Each wax melt is shaped as a 6 petal flower. Each one not identical in colour but similar, with different shades of pink and purple running through each.
Scent. What you get with this melt is a fruity, uplifting scent with a floral rose element to it ( rhubarb rose ), but then it becomes very clean and fresh all at the same time ( dove ). It literally is the smell of a bar of soap of the same name with a floral sweet twist to it.
In the warmer. Watching this melt was definitely enjoyable. These wax melts as mentioned are a decent size so took a little time but melted in the end. The flower slowly drowned and turned into a very pale lilac shimmering pool which was so pretty.
Strength & Longevity. Strength from this is great. I would describe this as being medium to strong. This was melting away, as all of my melts tend to, for at least 3days ( hours at a time ) and it was still going great guns. By the time I changed it it was purely to change scent not because the scent had died.
Recommended? 100%! I LOVE this scent! Why? Its a great alternative to a traditional laundry/clean scent which this is…its clean. Its clean but unusual and so enjoyable to smell thanks to the floral twist. Talking about floral.. where rose is concerned I’m not a rose fan, but this isn’t that full on rose thanks to its sweetness. Its such a beautiful blend and with dove added to it you just can’t lose. I defy anyone that wouldn’t at least like this scent let alone love it. This one is on my to buy again list.
