Do you find when seasons change so do some of your general habits? Spring is creeping in which means lighter starts to the day and more sunshine ( thank God! ). For my home fragrancing, I’m now heading towards more floral, laundry and fruity scents. I’ve decided to delve into a beautiful collection of wax snap bars a company called Snap Wax Melt kindly gifted to me at the start of this year. My second snap bar from them that got the chop recently was Rhubarb & Custard.
Why did I go for this one? Anyone who uses wax melts and candles will know rhubarb as a scent is extremely popular. Why? It’s gorgeous! I’m a massive fan and anything with it in has never failed me. I adore fruity and sweet scents anyway so choosing to melt this was a no brainer.
Appearance. Like all of Snap Wax Melt snap bars, these are rectangular in shape and made up of 10 raised squares you snap off to use. The colours of this will catch your eye as they are pink and yellow, which contrasts perfectly. The left hand side of the bar the segments are yellow in colour and the right pink. But the yellow is only visible on the top. If you look carefully at the pink sections there are the tiniest little dark pink speckles in it which gives it a subtle detail.
Scent. Mouth watering! Have you ever eaten and smelt rhubarb and custard hard boiled sweets, that are usually lightly dusted with sugar? This is identical! You get a sugary, sweet, fruity rhubarb scent to it. And of course it’s finished off with a vanilla based, creamy custard. There is no why no one wouldn’t know what this smells like if you’ve had the sweets before. On top of that the colouring of this is a bit of a giveaway too!
In melt. I popped 3 squares into my wax warmer, and they melted away evenly, producing an inviting pink pool of wax. The scent was already there while it was solid so only got stronger as it warmed through. It filled my kitchen so well despite the fact there were various things cooking at once, yet it fought through and was very obvious.
Strength & Longevity. Strength is a medium. I wouldn’t want this to be stronger as it doesn’t need it so perfect strength. Great for a variety of different sized and shaped rooms. Longevity was excellent as these 3 segments lasted a good 8 hrs over 2 days and was changed purely because I wanted a different scent, not because the smell was gone. So this wax bar will provide hours and hours of fragrance time.
Who would love this? Like me, if you love fruit based scents, sweet inspired scents, this is a must! Scents don’t have to be seasonal, you should melt what you like when you like. BUT this screams to me Spring and Summer. So if you want to change from more heavier, musky, Autumn/Winter scents this is ideal. Great for kitchens too in regards to neutralising cooking smells. And of course lovers of the rhubarb scent buy this purely for the fact it contains the rhubarb scent in it alone!
Recommended? As someone who loves sweetie inspired scents this is a winner for me so a yes! It’s true to what it’s supposed to smell like which is absolutely delicious. Perfect strength, great longevity and the bar itself begs you to break and melt it. So why wouldn’t I love and recommend it?
