Pretty Home Aromas Cosy Cuddles 80g Wax Melt Segmented Pot

My wax stash is not getting smaller, it’s just getting bigger! I promise myself time and time again that I will use up my fragranced wax more. But then I buy more than what I’m melting! But while it’s cooler and I’m enjoying being inside more than outside, this makes the perfect time to use more home fragrance and hopefully get my stash down. My home fragrance of choice, of course, is in the form of a wax melt. And this particular wax piece comes from Pretty Home Aromas and is in the scent of Cosy Cuddles.

Pretty Home Aromas Cosy Cuddles 80g Wax Melt Segmented Pot

Why did I chose this one? I recently bought a beautiful Autumn scented wax bundle from Pretty Home Aromas, which included this piece. Wanting to chose something from this collection, I opted for this scent because I hoped for something quite fresh but calming at the same time.

Packaging. 80g of wax sits in a flip top clear plastic pot. What I like about this is on the lid it gives a brief description of the scent and what fragrances are in it. The lettering and logo being in black really makes it stand out and look very upmarket. On the bottom of the pot is the relevant ( and legal ) ingredients list.

Appearance. If the character Tinkerbell was ever an inspiration for wax it would be this one! A simple base of cream coloured wax with a random and sparingly run through of mint green. A large leaf ( not real ) is embedded close to the middle and surrounded by gold coloured glitter and green shimmering pigment. Absolutely stunning!

If you turn the wax around to look at the bottom, you will see how although it’s one whole piece, its segmented like a piece of chocolate so you can break off individual sections for use.

Scent. A minty scent with a subtle herbal based background, finished off with an intoxicating sweetness and a dash of musk. It’s one of those scents which makes you want to inhale it. This fragrance is fresh in its own way, but warming at the same time. I wouldn’t normally associate this with any form of mint, especially eucalyptus. Very comforting, very relaxing and a little cuddle in wax form!

In melt. I used only 1 segment of this wax. I just loved how it melted into a decadent wax pool of hues of brown and green with a little glitter. I’ve melted this in both my kitchen and living room ( at different times ), and I found the fragrance filled the rooms beautifully. Exactly the same scent when melted as it was when solid.

Strength & Longevity. Strength I would say is medium. This was ideal for the scent type, and it just smelt and seemed so natural rather than a piece of wax just melting in the corner. Noticeable and very inviting. Longevity was great. This lasted for hours over a 3/4 day period and only on its last day I felt the strength got less.

Recommended? A total recommendation here! Visually this is a gorgeous piece of wax! It’s just so pretty! Take into consideration the look and amount of wax you get is fantastic value. And I can’t forget to mention ( which is the most important thing! ), how gorgeous the scent of this is. The scent itself is definitely Autumnal but a nice change to the classic, bakery based scents most of us love around this time of year. This wax literally is bringing the outside into the home without you opening the front door!

Does the sound of a Cosy Cuddle without socially distancing yourself sound like your type of scent? You can order your segmented wax melt direct from Pretty Home Aromas here and it costs £4.50. Enjoy!

Pretty Home Aromas Wax Melt Autumn Bundle

Autumn as a season is definitely my favourite time of the year, closely followed by Winter. There’s just something about it which I love. Cooler days and nights, leaves turning from green to shades or orange, yellow and red…I just love it! I also find that when it comes to home fragrance in the forms of candles and wax melts, the more Autumnal scents really excite me. So is it any wonder that I recently bought fragranced wax melts, pots and bars from Pretty Home Aromas in their Autumn Bundle? Nope!

Why did I order this? I’ve bought wax from Pretty Home Aromas a few times in the past, and I follow them on Instagram. I’ve always found their wax pieces to stand out visually which is what attracted me in the first place to them. They released this bundle which coincided with them relaunching their brand. The released pictures of this set on their feed blew me away! Each piece looked beautiful, all the scents were the type I would happily melt and the price was outstanding. £19.99 including delivery!

Great variety of shapes and sizes from the small wriggly shaped wax snap bars to the large 80g pots loving covered in glitter with a leave shape embedded in the middle. All the colours are very in keeping with Autumn, with shapes such as pumpkins being visible and keeping up with the theme. I have to say this is one of the most stunning wax collections that’s ever graced my doorstep!

The wax pots in the Autumn Wax Bundle

Scent. So many different ones are included in this collection, but again all of them scream Autumn. All providing that cosy stay inside wrapped in a blanket feel or take a brisk walk outside type of vibe. To give you an idea on how some of these smell fragrance wise, here are a few of the scents from this collection:

Fireside. A manly base to it which is clean and fresh with a little musk and woody notes.

Pumpkin Souffle. Creamy and bakery based, with a hint of warming spices such as cinnamon with pumpkin of course in the mix.

Pumpkin Souffle

Peppermint Eucalyptus. This has a minty coolness with a herbal base to it. Its not overwhelming or typical mint wise in scent. Think less syrupy sweet more toned down and rounded aromatherapy.

Toasted Toes. This has a delicate floral to it which makes it very pretty. A little woodiness is mixed in with it which gives it an edgy depth.

Strength & Longevity. There is SO MUCH WAX in this collection I haven’t melted it all! In fact very little of it to be honest. I don’t have enough wax warmers, time, but more importantly these are too beautiful to melt its so difficult!

Pepper, Maple and Cedar wax snap bar was a good, strong piece of wax! I really didn’t need to use much, half the bar. And goodness me the scent was magical, fresh and the perfect outdoor inspired Autumnal scent! This little piece of wax lasted a good 4 days of melting for around 15-20hrs.

Pepper, Maple and Cedar Small Snap Wax Bar

Recommended? This particular bundle/set was limited edition and probably won’t be coming back. BUT I couldn’t recommend this set or any of the individual scents and wax pieces enough! Beautifully made and presented, great scents with matching longevity and an absolute steal for £19.99 with free p & p!

Some of these pieces are available for purchase individually. But what I can say is please keep your eyes open for other bundle offers as there have been different bundles offered over the last few weeks with different themes. From bubblegum based wax scents to firework inspired wax pieces. In all honesty if you can grab any of them do it! Fantastic wax at fantastic prices!

Druid and The Witch’s Coconut & Waterfall Blooms Wax Melt

It’s Halloween! Let’s be honest, this year hasn’t been the best has it? The traditional ways people are celebrating this season in 2020 has been thrown out of the window. Many people now are celebrating in their own way and in their own homes. Me? My usual dislike of the season has lessened, and sweets and snacks are currently sat on a bat covered table cloth in my living room! So going along with the Halloween vibe, I’ve been fragrancing my kitchen with Coconut & Waterfall Blooms wax melt from Druid and The Witch over the last 2 days.

Druid and The Witch’s Coconut & Waterfall Blooms Wax Melt

Why choose this melt? I bought a few Halloween pieces recently because I thought they would be fun and quite different for me purchase wise. This particular wax melt was bought and used because of its shape and scent. This came in a bundle of other Halloween shaped wax melts that cost £6.00, which was a perfect and affordable try me set.

Appearance. Mid purple in colour and shaped like a ghost. A sweet ghost but not a scary one. Wearing a bow tie, smiley mouth with simple eyes and cheeks. No glitter, no pigment, one block colour.

Scent. A delicate floral with a slight hint of tropical to it. It’s a very pretty scent, very fresh and relaxing and beautiful. Something I would happily wear, if I could, as a fragrance because it’s that nice!

In melt. How adorable this wax melt looked made it very hard to melt. The size of the wax melt is perfect for one use. The poor thing melted away quite quickly and left a gorgeous pool of lilac liquid wax while releasing it’s fragrance.

Strength & Longevity. I would say this is light in strength close to medium. I melted this in my kitchen and it gave the room a lovely soft fragrance. It was there, you could smell it and it was perfect strength wise. For this type of scent it was ideal. Sometimes you want and need something punchy and in your face, sometimes you don’t. Definitely not needed for this melt. Longevity wise this has proven to be a good one. It was on melt over the last two days over a stretch of hours yet the strength and scent has remained consistent throughout.

Recommended? This is my first experience with Druid and The Witch’s wax melts. The fact it screamed Halloween look wise but smelt nothing like the typical scents associated with the season I loved. Great look, perfect strength for the scent family with good longevity. What more could I ask for? A thumbs up from me and I can’t wait to try more home fragrance from this company.

Fragrantasia’s Blackberry Mint Chunk Wax Pot

As a wax melt lover, I am open to new wax vendors. To inspire me to purchase from them scents available is a factor, look of wax and of course prices. But regardless of new discoveries there are always a few wax vendors that I trust and will always go back to time and time again. Fragrantasia is one such wax vendor, who I’ve used for the last couple of years, and never been let down in regards to quality and price. Over the last few days I’ve been melting Blackberry Mint Chunk Pot.

Fragrantasia’s Blackberry Mint Wax Chunk Pot

Why melt Blackberry Mint? I love fruity scents and minty scents so why not? There hasn’t been too many wax melts I’ve used in the past with this fragrance combination, and I felt like melting something totally different to what I’ve been using the last few weeks.

Fragrantasia’s Scent Description ( from website ). Wild mint chunks with a tart blackberry overpour.

Packaging. I’m not 100% sure of the weight of this wax, but going off my vast experience of buying wax, I’m guessing (but don’t quote me on this one!) this will weigh around the 50/55g mark. This wax sits in a plastic, sturdy pot which is lidded. Label on top telling you vendor and fragrance name, while on the underside the ( lawful labeling I may add ) ingredients list.

The look. I love a wax pot chunk! An almost lilac purple coloured wax base with random and generous sized lilac coloured chunks of wax bursting through. Such a simple creation in appearance but visually I think is so pleasing!

Scent. When I first opened the lid I got a hit of mint. Not your typical peppermint or spearmint type of mint, but a much fresher, punchier and less sweet variety. Verging almost on the herbal side and definitely not confectionery. You get a tart, dark berry type element to it which rounds it off giving it not only depth, but softening it by adding a sprinkle of fruity sweetness to it. Not a typical fruit or mint scent in anyway shape or form. Very unique!

In melt. What a beautiful little thing going from solid to liquid! I used a quarter of the pot, and found this slowly melted. The chunks remained visible while swirling in a sea of two tones of purple. Absolutely beautiful.

Even before melting I could smell the fragrance, which only intensified when warmed through. Took very little time to work its way around my kitchen and seeped its way into my living room.

Strength & Longevity. This is STRONG! I had this on while cooking and you wouldn’t think I was cooking. It’s not overpowering but definitely has a kick to it! In regards to longevity, I’ve had this melting for roughly 7 hours over 2 days so far and it’s still kicking out fragrance. So very good.

Recommended? This actually is quite an unusual scent and one I’ve really enjoyed! I would love to see a strawberry or lemon mint version of this. The scent combos are endless! A very cooling and inviting scent that mint lovers will love, and fruit lovers will be won over.
