I’ve been neglecting my babies. No, not my 9 and 11 year old children, my wax babies! My storage unit that houses all my home fragrance and bath and body products really looks unloved and messy. But with my kids back to school I hope to have the time to sort it out. But in regards to using wax, this is definitely the time of year I tend to melt more due to it being milder in temperature. It’s slightly darker outside earlier so more atmospheric, and in general my home seems to have much more of a cozier feel. So going through my wax haul ready for a fragrance change, I decided to pick out Strawberry Melts Baby Soft wax melts to melt and enjoy.
Why Baby Soft? This isn’t a new purchase. I actually bought this in 2019, but still absolutely perfect look and scent wise. I chose this one because I didn’t want to go for a typical Autumn or bakery scented melt, but I did want something soothing and fresh.
Strawberry Melts Scent Description. A gentle baby soft fragrance. Delicate floral mingle with a soft rose heart sweetened with powdery accords and layers of creamy vanilla.
The wax melt in look. This pack contained 3 almost identical in look and colour wax melts. Not quite a snowflake shape or a flower shape, but I think an in between of these two is the best description for its look. A very pale and pretty mint green colour, with shards of very small and fine silver glitter all over the top of it.
My scent description. Think of the smell of a famous baby lotion. Give it more of a powdery element to it, the tiniest hint of floral and that is what this smells like. Fresh, clean, powdery, baby like!
In melt. One wax melt is enough per use. And because its a decent size and thickness it took a little time to melt but melt it did. Gone was the wintry looking melt which was replaced with a shimmering and beautiful pool green looking lagoon. The fragrance wasn’t released when this warmed through, you could smell it while cold and sitting there. So even without heat it was already making my kitchen smell beautiful. With heat this just intensified and filled my small kitchen and spread into the living room.
Strength and longevity. I would say this melt is strong. Not too strong for me. It gave my home a comforting feel which was enjoyably to experience. And on top of that it had a clean and fresh scent, which everyone likes! From this one wax melt it was heated through for at least 4 hours per day over 3 days and still had a great strength to it, longevity was ( and still is as it’s still melting away! ) fantastic!
Recommended? 150% its a yes! Why? Its a great alternative scent wise to a traditional laundry scent but still has that clean aspect to it. And it’s just such a pleasant and familiar scent you can’t help but love. Most people wouldn’t dislike this fragrance, and this would work well in any room at anytime of the day. What I really like is one wax piece will last for hours, and 3 of course triple the fragrance time, which provides great value. I don’t remember how much these cost at time of purchase, but similar wax melts are sold for £2.50 currently.
This isn’t a regular scent from Strawberry Melts as their restock scents change regularly. But it doesn’t mean it won’t come back up in the future. Keep your eyes open for it’s return and also to see what other amazing scents in wax this vendor produces here currently.
