Chelsea’s Monthly Melts Box Review – October 2020

Halloween wax melts in shapes including pumpkins, bats and ghosts
Another month has flown by, which means it’s time to review another monthly box from Chelsea’s Melts. The October box, of course, had to be Halloween themed – so my seasonal selection of posts continues. 

The box cost £7.50, but as I coincided this with another order, I couldn’t tell you if that was inclusive of P+P or not. There were five products in varying scents, which were:

  • Spook (in the shape of a ghost) – similar to the well-known fragrance 
  • Witches Brew (in the shape of a pumpkin) – amber, patchouli and cedarwood 
  • Candyfloss (in the shape of a pumpkin) – lemon, bergamot, musk, muguet and vanilla 
  • Dragons blood (in the shape of a bat) – amber, patchouli and sandalwood with fruity notes 
  • Hot chocolate (in the shape of a pumpkin) – chocolate, honey and vanilla

My favourites

I have to admit, I was expecting both the hot chocolate and candyfloss melts to be my favourite. I’m a sucker for sweet scents, but I was actually really pleasantly surprised by my two favourites. I can’t even describe what Dragons Blood smelt like, but it’s not as a scary or revolting as it sounds – it really was lush. The fruity notes really came through, and it was almost like bubble gum. I ended up buying this scent again, and it’s currently burning in the bedroom. The scent throw on it is amazing, and literally fills the whole of our upstairs.

And I’d never smelt the Ghost perfume before, in fact, I didn’t even know that the fragrance inspired this wax melt. I even thought it was based on a luxury fragrance, maybe something by Gucci – but it’s not. Regardless of that, I am in love. I may even have to buy the perfume to see if it matches the melt, in terms of its scent. Again, a massive scent throw. I just loved the mixture of fruity and sweet notes – it’s kinda musky, but with a bit of floral thrown in… and that’s the best I can describe it!

The same but different

A quick Google search will bring up so many retailers selling fragrance oils for candles and melts. Witches brew is a name that springs up loads, with there being no definitive scent profile – there are hundreds! When I first saw Witches Brew in the Halloween box, I was excited. I’d tried the scent before from another vendor – but this one was different. It wasn’t chocolately, malty and full of praline. It was more earthy and woody, and almost like a cologne. I liked it, don’t get me wrong, but it was different. It was a perfect one for the bedroom, as it helped me unwind.

After a break, Chelsea has returned with the start of her Christmas stock. It’s all on Etsy, if you’re interested. I can’t wait to receive my order, as I’ve started storing all my Festive scents in a little hamper, ready to start burning next month. November will see me finish off all the Halloween products I had bought. So far, I’ve ordered gingerbread, peppermint cream, snow fairy and fig & snowberry. And I’ve even forgotten what was in my most recent order, so it will be a lovely surprise when that arrives.

As always, the box was beautifully wrapped, and was excellent value for money. Each of the melts weighed between 40-45g, so idea for snapping in half and getting two uses out of them. Chelsea has said she will release some baubles for Christmas, so keep your eyes peeled. I’m hoping she will continue with these monthly boxes – I love them!
