And the winner of our Valentine’s Gift Hamper is….

10 February 14


Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been asking fans of Melt to let us know the fragrance they adore more than any other in return for a chance to win a gorgeous selection box of our luxury scented candles and reed diffusers, worth £133.

This was our first #acandleisnotforchristmas competition – and just our way of showing you a little bit of love in return for all the amazing support we’ve received.

Thank you to everyone who took part!

While we were expecting to get quite a modest response to the contest, we couldn’t have been more wrong. We’ve had such a fabulous time watching all your comments come rolling in – over 350 on a single blog post!

We’ve been overwhelmed by the response and have loved connecting with all of you across our blog and social media. Many of you shared stories about fragrances that mean a lot to you – the scent of a loved one who’s passed away, or a long cherished memory of a time in your past – and we feel really honoured that you chose to share such special thoughts with us.

More than just a scented candle…

Our scented candles are real labours of love for us – we spend a long time and lots of effort creating beautifully nuanced fragrances that will evoke something truly magical for our customers.

Unlike mass produced candles that are often quickly made with artificial ingredients, each of our handmade candles is made with care, love and the finest quality essential oils, helping to ensure that you take home a really wonderful product each and every time.

And the winner is…

So, without any further ado, we’d like to announce the winner of our gorgeous Valentine’s Day hamper, packed full of some of our loveliest handmade candles and luxury reed diffusers to keep your home smelling spectacular over the course of the coming year.

A big “Congratulations!” to Mrs Diane Darby.

To claim your fabulously fragrant prize, just drop us an email at and we’ll get your hamper on its way to you!

Not a winner this time?

Sadly, we can’t treat you all to a box of our gorgeous scented candles. But, if you can’t wait until our next competition, why not give yourself a happy Valentine’s Day with one of our lovely scented candle taster boxes?

You can pick five of your favourite fragrances and we’ll box up the selection for you – five of our small, hand-poured glass jar candles in elegant ivory wax. Perfect for gifts, or just for pampering yourself!

So thanks once again to everyone who entered our first #acandleisnotforchristmas competition – and stay tuned to our blog and the Melt Candles Twitter feed so you’ll be the first to know when we have another (Mother’s Day).

UPDATE: our scented candle taster boxes are now on offer for just £35.00 +P&P!
