The Dreamiest Subscription Box Ever - Cosy Candles Soy Wax Melts.*

I know it's a bit of a blogging cliché to say you were "super excited!" to work with certain brands, but in this case, I am a walking cliché. Living in a rented house means I'm quite limited in terms of what I can do with the decor, but home accessories are my absolute jam. Give me a throw, some cushions, or more specifically, a billion scented items, and I am one happy camper. So, I may be a stereotype, but I was absolutely overjoyed to receive this package from Cosy Candles!

Cosy Candles are a subscription box service, delivering the highest quality, highly fragranced soy wax melts to your door every month. They have two options for subscriptions, the first being The Mini Melt subscription box which contains 28 of their hand-poured soy wax melts, in four different scents each month. These melts weigh approximately 5g each, are cute little heart shapes, and the box gives you around 140 hours of fragrance each month - for an amazing price of just £9.99! I had a peek at their Instagram and was really impressed with how generous this box is, considering the price - you really get a decent amount for your money. 

However, I received June's Cosy Pod subscription box, and let me tell you, this blew me away. I could honestly smell this package before I even picked it up - yes, the box is letterbox-friendly so you don't even have to wait around for the postie! The Cosy Pod box contains six handmade soy wax pods, each with an incredible fragrance. They are also HUGE - 100mm wide and 20mm high and each weighs around 80g. That's an incredible 480 hours of fragrance in every box - not bad for just £14.99!

The box arrived, beautifully packaged (can you believe that the subscription boxes have FREE delivery?!) and I couldn't wait to dive in. June's box has the most delicious range of scents:

  • Dark Amber & Ginger - a spicy but sweet mix with a hint of muskiness
  • Peony & Blush - a gorgeous floral with all the fragrance of a summer garden in bloom
  • Lemon Sherbert - exactly like the candies! Zesty, citrusy and sugary-sweet
  • Fresh Linen - a clean, fresh, simple scent with that comforting clean clothes smell!
  • Pink Champagne - almost fizzy in scent, with a burst of fruity tartness (is that a word?)
  • Seaweed & Juniper - like a day at the beach, with a really fresh and natural aroma

I'm quite fussy with scents so I wasn't expecting to love all of them, but I actually do! My favourite is probably the Peony & Blush which is weird as I'm not usually into florals, but it's so nice. My husband is really into the Seaweed & Juniper and the Lemon Sherbert, but we currently have the Dark Amber & Ginger burning and our whole house is filled with its gorgeous fragrance. I'm really impressed with how strong the scent is considering I didn't even use a quarter of the pod. They also last for ages which is so good; I hate when you can't smell a scented candle or melt five minutes after you've started burning it. 

This box has really impressed me - to the point where I'm cancelling my Birchbox in order to sign up for this instead. You can buy the pods individually for £3.99 each, which is still an excellent price but to get 6 for £14.99 is such a bargain! (Although saying that I may have to sneak a Black Cherry pod into my basket too, cause that sounds unreal...). Either of these boxes would make great gifts but are also just a lovely little way to brighten up your home and put a smile on your face. The idea of having beautiful fragrances just dropping through my letterbox on a monthly basis makes me so happy, I can't wait for the next box! The only issue I'll have is deciding what scent to try next.

You definitely deserve some Cosy Candles in your life! If you'd like 30% off your first month's subscription you can use the code BETHANY30 at the checkout - treat yo'self (and your nose!). You will not regret it!

Be sure to check Cosy Candles out on their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
