Melt - Neroli & Rose Geranium Candle

Hello beauties! 
Little bit of a different post from me today, I'm usually just a straight up beauty reviewing blogger but I was contacted and asked if I would like to review a candle from a company called Melt who make the most beautiful scented candles. Too which I jumped at the chance as I am a huge candle junkie, I think it's also fitting as who doesn't enjoy a good pamper night without an amazing smelling candle!

The Candle I received is Neroli & Rose Geranium. 

Packaging? - The Candle comes in a beautiful and sturdy black cardboard box they send these off really wrapped up well too so you have no fear of it breaking in transit. On the outside of the box it has a delicate spiral pattern which makes it look modern and chic, it also states the name and all the ingredients in the beautiful candle. 

Smell? - This Candle contains Neroli & Rose Geranium, Orange flower, Sweet Pea & Freesia, On a heart of a Rose, Solar Accord & Jasmin, over a base of Cedarwood & Vanilla. 

Overall? - I love this Candle! The second I opened up the box in which it came filled with packaging nuts I could smell the most gorgeous scent. I personally hoped that I would get this one as I've wanted to try a candle with Neroli in it for so long, Apparently it helps with anxiety? Anyway, I didn't even have to lift the lid to smell what was inside, I was hit with the most gorgeous almost musky, rose smell and I'm a huge lover of rose so I was so delighted. I spent a good amount of time sniffing the candle before burning it and even left it on my dressing room as I scented my room gently before I'd even burnt it. I think I enjoy this candle so much as it also contains Sweet Pea which is my all time favorite smell/flower in the world. 

Once lit I wont lie to you I didn't smell anything for a good 15 minutes but it's been burning for a while now and the candle scent is permeating the whole upstairs of my house. It's completely relaxing smell and would be perfect in a bedroom or a bathroom. 

This candle retails at £21 which seems really pricey to me but it does offer 70+ hours of burn time and is hand pour with essential oils. If I was going to compare this to another popular candle brand I would say its really high quality and the smell isn't synthetic like some it's much more natural and you can tell it has been made with natural oils, not synthetic oils. I do however also think this would make the most amazing gift, either a wedding gift or a moving in gift this would be perfect, the minimalist but modern and delicate glass would suit any decor as you can see it looks great in my dainty pink and white shabby chic/vintage bedroom!
