The Melt Crowd | Easter Edition (March 2016)

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Melt Crowd - Easter Edition (March 2016)

How crazy is it that Easter is only practically a stones throw away? I can almost smell the chocolate...or maybe that's something to do with the deliciously scented 'Easter Egg' melt. Who knows! Anyway, with that in mind, Flamingo Candles have done it once again and given Melt Crowd subscribers another brilliant box, this time themed around Easter and all it brings.

What does Easter mean to you? What images does the holiday conjure up? For me, it's all about stepping into spring and out of the cold, replacing darker colours with pastels, and the childlike joy of receiving easter eggs. With that in mind, I think Flamingo Candles have made the perfect Melt Crowd box to capture the essence of Easter: gorgeous pastel melts, with some sweet smelling seasonal fragrances.

'Easter Egg' Scent Melt (Exclusive) - This melt definitely captures the childlike essence of Easter all in one go! As soon as the box dropped through our letterbox this little beauty was the strongest scent that I could make out from the rest. It smells delicious and whilst the chocolate aroma wasn't noticeable for me straight away, it does have a lasting linger that reminds me of chocolate icing - so in short, it made me kind of hungry.

BARE 'Ylang Ylang & Bergamot' Essential Oils Scent Melt (Preview) - At first, I wasn't sure what I thought of this melt as it seemed a bit too strong for my liking. However I've since come round to this melt - there's just something I can't resist about ylang ylang. As an essential oils melt I swear I find this range a bit stronger than usual, but with the combination of ylang ylang and bergamot I have to say they do workretty well together.
'Spearmint' Scent Melt (Exclusive) - Ahhh, I do love a good mint fragrance (one of my favourite melts so far has been the 'Bah! Humbug' melt from the November box). Is it weird though that I don't actually like mint as anything more than a scent? Yeah just me...anyway, 'Spearmint' is the perfect mint fragrance without being too overpowering or strong. I'm quite gutted that this melt is only an exclusive as I would have loved it in candle form, it would be the perfect candle to light to give any room a bit of a refreshing lift.

'Mango & Dragonfruit' Scent Melt - This has to be my favourite melt of the box. It has such a juicy and fruity scent that it actually makes my mouth water a little. With a very fresh and strong aroma, 'Mango & Dragonfruit' is the stand out melt of the box for me. Among all the other easter and spring themed melts, I love that this one is a bit different to the rest.

'Very Vanilla' Scent Melt (Exclusive) - Why oh why are some of the best melts from every box melt crowd exclusives?! Vanilla is one of my favourite aromas on Earth, and this melt smells so mouthwateringly good. To me it smells like my kitchen when I have a day of baking - I tend to love vanilla essence and use it in pretty much any cakes I make!

'French Lime Blossom' Scent Melt (Exclusive) - Another melt crowd exclusive, this melt is a gorgeously refreshing floral kind of scent. It's not too overpowering like some floral fragrances might be, but I think that's what makes it work so well for me. I'm sure it has a little musk to it too, and the citrus is only slightly detectable.

'Spring Break' Scent Melt (Preview) - When I first opened the box and smelt 'Spring Break', I must admit I wasn't sure what to think of this melt. It has a sweet, gentle aroma to it with a slight muskier hint. Come to think of it, it's slightly fresh too - I'm not sure what category this melt would be classified under, but it is definitely something different.

'Bunny Kisses' Scent Melt - Oh boy I was so excited when I opened up this months box and saw this little cutie sitting there! I've been dying to see what 'Bunny Kisses' smelt like ever since seeing some excitement over the candle on twitter. And I'm happy to say it does not disappoint! With a yummy rhubarb and custard scent, I genuinely can't stop having a little sniff of this every now and then. It smells sooo good - I definitely need to invest in the candle at some point soon!

This months box was a pretty interesting addition to the Melt Crowd so far - I do love how the melts are changing slightly to accommodate the change in season! You can definitely tell that we're now into Spring too - instead of heavier, warming scents, the March box instead is a more refreshing change.

All together I'm impressed with the March box, and I am seriously in love with the 'Mango & Dragonfruit' and 'Bunny Kisses' melts. Someone please treat me to the candle versions ASAP - Liam, I'm looking at you here!
