I’m very much into home fragrances and like my rooms to be smelling inviting and lovely, today I would like to share with you my first review on Melt Luxury Glass Jar Candle in Rich Cream.

Melt Luxury Glass Jar Candle in Rich Cream

Here is a little information from the lovely people at Melt about their Rich Cream Jar Candle….

Because occasionally we all need something to rattle the old grey matter and our Rich Cream fragrance does it perfectly. Which season should it be most perfect for? We’re not quite sure. Is it masculine or feminine? Hmmm, we’ve never been able to work that one out either. Is it woody, spicy or floral? Well – it would appear all three. See what we mean? On top of that it manages to be elegant and sophisticated. HELP……all comments welcome!

Our Rich Cream scented, luxury candle will give you over 70 hours of scented bliss and comes in a beautiful gift box making it the perfect gift or indulgent treat for yourself.


My love of home fragrance started years ago when Mark (My now other half) had an online shop selling bath and home goodies. He always kept me well stocked and made my home smell wonderful. Since then I have always had things at home, whether it be candles, incense  or oils. This is my first time featuring a Candle company on my blog, as candles are a massive love of mine I thought I would share with you my thoughts on the Rich Cream Glass Jar Candle from Melt.

The packaging both inside and out is understated but elegant. I love how the glass candle will fit into any room, the candle is white and the glass jar have a simple black graphic. This was my first praise with this candle as too many can be coloured, or won’t fit into your colour schemes of your home – this one is perfect.

The initial scent before lighting is light and homely. Its not too heady or overpowering – just enough for you to get an idea of what kind of scent it will create in your home.

Upon lighting the candle my room was instantly transferred back to winter months, with an open fire and my dogs on a rug (Please not I do not have an open fire). In fact, I instantly thought I should rename the candle ‘Warm and Cosy’ from its Rich Cream name (However, I don’t think that’s as classy is it?).

The fragrance gave my room a homely, floral scent with a mixture of spice and warmth. Its such a hard fragrance to describe, but it was perfect, relaxing and made me feel happy and content. Even the children were more relaxed than normal, maybe it was the scents power over them too?

The candle claims it lasts up to 70 hours in burning time. I have used mine over 4 days so far burning it for 8 hours at a time and I’ve not even reached the half way mark – so I feel it will last a good amount of time.

Over all, I have used many candles in my time from expensive luxury brands to the cheaper ones you can buy in the high street and I have to say I am extremely impressed with Melt. I can only liken their product to that of a high end, luxury item. I would definitely use their products again and will be recommending them to my other friends who are as into home fragrance as I am.

The Luxury Jar Candles in Rich Cream from Melt cost £21.00. They also do other sizes in various prices, something for everyone. I am definitely going to be trying Hush next as I think it would be perfect for my bedroom.

Lots of Love,
