jasmine flower for scented candle

With all their years of love and nurturing, it’s completely understandable that when Mother’s Day comes around, it can be hard to come up with the perfect present. But here’s the secret: most of the time, it’s just a matter of showing a little appreciation! Spend some quality time with her, thank her and make sure she knows you love her.

And if you need an extra something sweet, you could do a lot worse than our Neroli and Rose Geranium luxury scented candle! This little lady has a reputation as an ultra feminine scent; classy and sophisticated. Lovingly crafted by our skilled chandeliers here at Melt, with carefully selected ingredients. Here’s what makes her special!

Orange Blossom Oil

Sometimes known as Neroli oil, you probably don’t need us to tell you it’s a central element in this particular candle! It’s got that magic combination of being sweet and spicy all at once, while also being wonderfully refreshing. The orange blossom itself is known for being famously delicate, so it’s always picked by hand. Sweet, spicy and delicate – all amazing feminine qualities! Orange blossom is widely used in a lot of different perfumes, due to its ability to refresh the brain, and promote a sense of calm and relaxation.

You might already be familiar with the beauty of this famous flower. It’s special in that it only blooms at night, making it a naturally sophisticated evening scent. Its strong, sweet and pleasing fragrance is unmistakably alluring, and it’s often associated with romance and love.

Cedarwood & Vanilla

Cedarwood is something of a favourite of ours here at Melt. Known for its warm, balsamic and woody aroma, its rich hue helps it to blend beautifully with the other ingredients, including the vanilla essential oil. The vanilla itself has a sweet, musky fragrance, which brings it perfectly into balance with the cedarwood to promote relaxation and create a peaceful, settled atmosphere.


rose for luxury scented candle

Ah, this nurturing, floral fragrance is a classic ingredient for many of our luxury scented candles – perfectly complementing the base notes with a strong, long-lasting top note that’s at once soft and soothing. For lots of us, the scent of rose evokes the idea of young love, and long strolls through sunlit gardens. Famously romantic, it’s the ideal companion to jasmine to create a heightened sense of sensuality – if that’s what you’re in the mood for!

Sweet Pea and Freesia

These delightful fragrances are the finishing touches on this wonderful scented candle. Sweet pea is known for (surprise!) a sweet floral note – its light, herbal scent evokes romanticism and is often a favourite for bridal ceremonies. Meanwhile, the peppery zing of freesia adds a floral freshness with a sense of depth to it, giving the finished scented candle just the right amount of intensity.

And then, of course, there’s our much sought-after ‘solar accord’ ingredient. What does that smell like, you ask? Well, you’ll have to breathe in the complex, sensual scent of Neroli & Rose Geranium to find out! Of course, if you’ve got a spare moment you can always find us on our little shop on the farm – and if you’re a bit strapped for time, even a late Mother’s Day present is always appreciated (especially if it’s a surprise)!
