When it comes to wax melts, I think I’ve tried loads of different fragrances over the years. Some have been good, some have been great and some haven’t been to my taste at all. Sometimes certain scents are available and you just know deep down in your soul that you will love them! When Fragrantasia started to make and sell Banana Bubblegum Chunk Wax Pot last year, I KNEW I needed this in my home. The lovely Amy from the company kindly gifted this to me. And although it’s taken me awhile to melt, it was definitely worth the wait!
Why did I melt this one? I ADORE bubblegum as a scent, especially in wax form. But one fragrance I’ve never tried has been banana. The two combined brings together two of my favourite fragrance families, one being fruity and the other being sweet inspired scents. So why would I NOT want to melt this?
What’s a wax chunk pot? A wax chunk pot is basically what the name suggests. It’s a pot of wax that normally consists of two fragrances. One being the main wax and scent, the other one being visible chunks of wax embedded into it which are of a different fragrance.
Packaging. This chunk pot lives in a clear, lidded pot. Labelling on the lid and ingredients list on the inside of the lid.
The look. The majority of this wax is mid pink in colour. Contrasting Minion yellow coloured chunks of wax can be seen poking out of it. The two colours together are so eye catching and have an almost sweety like look to it.
Scent. The scent of this reminds me of those soft banana sweets I used to get as a kid, but with more added sugariness thanks to the bubblegum element. Absolutely mouth watering yet somehow not sickly.
In melt. I used just under quarter of this in my wax warmer in the kitchen. As this slowly melted it became a mixed pool of yellow and pink liquid wax. The fragrance itself came out immediately. If I’m honest it was already there when I took off the lid of the pot this is housed in. But when warmed through and melting away, this filled my kitchen so well. Since it was so nice I decided to use another quarter and melt it in my living room at the same time.
Strength & Longevity. Strength was a medium when using a quarter of this wax chunk. Ideal for a small kitchen and medium sized living room. This has been melting in 2 positions for over 2 days and each time for a good number of hours. Consistently it throws out the fragrance well, so longevity is great.
Recommended? If you are a lover of your sweet and fruity scents this is a must! A fabulous fragrance that will leave you wiping dribble off your mouth as it’s so good! This is a little different fragrance wise and a great combination of 2 scents that work brilliantly together. It will become a firm favourite especially for bubblegum lovers, so it’s a yes from me! Great scent, looks cute, a good amount of wax which will give you hours of fragrance.
