We were so excited to be reviewing some wax melts from Emily Victoria Candles as they have such a wide range of fab and fun scents. They’ve been working so hard on making the best wax melts possible that I was sent a newer batch as soon as they were ready. I did find the first batch to be weaker in throw but these new ones are more like maxi wax melts so I’d advise breaking them up before you put them in your burner.
So here’s what I reviewed:
Pomegranate Cider: A hot cider with Cinnamon, Nutmeg And Cloves, With An Added Twist Of Pomegranate And Strawberry.
As you know I’m on a real pomegranate kick at the moment. I also do love a cider type scent too so I was so intrigued about this. It’s more of a fruit cider than full pomegranate though. As it says it has a twist of pomegranate and strawberry. This is a very warming scent and perfect for when it’s winter. It would also make a lovely Christmas scent.
Opium Fields: Packed With Notes Of Tangerine, Cloves, Plums, And Coriander, Followed By Supporting Notes Of Lily Of The Valley, Rose, And Myrrh, Resting On Base Notes Of Sandalwood And Cedar. Similar To Opium Fragrance.
This was one I expected to be strong because my experience of opium type scents has always been like that… until now. This is a more softer scent and not the sometimes overpowering scent than I remembered. This was perfect for the bathroom and I really loved that I could smell the tangerines in this.
Blue Hawaii: Blend Of Juicy Orange, Lemon, And Maraschino Cherries, Followed By Tangy Pineapple, Acai Berry, And Sea Spray; Well Rounded With Base Notes Of Sweet Coconut, Vanilla Rum.
This smells so much like an exotic beach walk it’s unreal! You can smell the coconut and the pineapple. All the fruits mix well together to smell like a cocktail with the rum too. Heaven!
Sangria Punch: Top notes of Grape, Orange, Lemon, Lime, And Apple, Followed By Middle Notes Of Pomegranate And Blackberries; Sitting On A Dry Down Of Sugar.
Really lovely full on fruit scent, didn’t really get the sangria style to it but I really loved how fruity this was. Reminded me of making my own summer punch.
Bermuda Triangle: An Excellent Blend Of Cantaloupe, Honeydew, And Watermelon; With Citrus Top Notes Of Mandarin, Tangerine, Grapefruit And Lime; With Just A Hint Of Juicy Apples.
LOVED this one. I absolutely love this. Did I say that I love it? Melon, oranges, grapefruit and apples. A great mix that I don’t think I’ve ever really had together.
Sour Apples: Tempt Your Taste Buds With The Aroma Of Tangy Yet Sweet Green Apple Goodness That Will Remind You Of The Sour Green Apple Candy You Enjoyed During Childhood.
I was (still am!) a lover of sour apple laces and other sweets. This is very much like that scent when I first open a bag of sour apple candy. It’s not at sugary smelling but it’s really sour that your nose will definitely know it. Loved this one for the memories it brought back.
I really loved smelling all the different scents. With splitting the melts in half I also got more out of each one too. On average it was about 3 tealights for each melt. These don’t have an immediately strong throw at first, the scents definitely take a while to build. Although Sour Apples would be an exception to that, it was immediately sour!
They have SO many other scents that you can try now. Even more than when I first looks at their website.
