A Candle is not just for Christmas – Competition 2

melt-comp-scented-candles

Many thanks to all of you who took the time to join in our first #acandleisnotjustforchristmas competition. Mostly it was just fun – although clearly a little more thought provoking for some. But your responses made us realise that fragrance is as important to you as it is to us!

As it is now March (can you believe that?) – and with Mother’s Day just around the corner we thought the timing was right to announce our second competition in the series. The winner will receive a hamper of their favourite candles worth £135!

This time we’d like you to tell us two things:

1.     The best piece of advice your mother ever gave you… ( We’re smiling already…)

2.     If your mother was a fragrance, what would she be and why?

Please post your comments at the bottom of this blog post.

The winner will be selected by the melt team on Monday 24th March and announced on the blog – the winner will receive their hamper just in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday 30th March.

  2. Melt says:

    Hi there Karen, many thanks for starting off the competition.
    Your mum “smells” lovely! have a lovely weekend…kind regards meltx

  3. Lin Young says:

    socks and undies to be changed every day – just in case you get run over
    If my mum was a perfume she would have been Eternity as she was always there for me

  4. Melt says:

    awww Lin…that’s brilliant! We completely forgot about that one…and what a lovely fragrance too. many thanks meltx

  5. Jane Willis says:

    “Whatever you’ve been doing and whoever you’ve been doing it with, never EVER go to bed with your make up on”. Half a century later my skin’s still great thanks to her advice.
    If she was one of your fragrances she would be Ginger and bergamot, because now she’s very old there’s little she can do all day but drink Earl Grey tea and dunk ginger nuts in it!

  6. She used to always tell other mothers to ‘Let children figure out the solution, don’t always give it to them’ and I actually find myself doing this now with my children too.

    My mum would probably be something subtle with a touch of a herbal, relaxing flavour. Something like your Still range.

  7. Melt says:

    Morning Jane, great advice from your mum…and what a civilized way to spend your twilight years!many thanks meltx

  8. Melt says:

    Morning Michaela,…wise words indeed. Bet her mum told her that too, it’s lovely what we pass down through the years….have a lovely weekend.meltx

  9. Thank you. Yeah, she said that her foster-mum always said it to her and it seemed to fit well 🙂

  10. Mrs Diane Darby says:

    It’s not what you say but how you say it, so think before you speak .I’m not sure about her thinking because we are as different as night and day !!!.
    Mint ,like a stick of Rock ,Mum all the way through .As children we love it as adults we think of our teeth……A little but not often is enough !!!

  11. Melt says:

    Hi there Diane,…of course and how true! Love the thought of your mum being like a stick of rock too……meltx

  12. Jennifer Gillies says:

    “And this too shall pass.” I can not count the number of times I have heard her voice in my heart saying that when things felt overwhelming or impossible. And she was right. Nothing stays the same forever. It is hard to see that when we are in the middle of it, but her words have brought me comfort and encouragement in the face of many challenges.

    I know this one sounds crazy… but… baby ducks! My mum loved the perfume “Beautiful” and on her it always smelled different than it does straight from the bottle. I could never quite think of what it reminded me of, besides baby ducks, not that I have ever smelled baby ducks! But it is such a unique smell to me, one only she will ever have. Not sure that was the effect she was going for, but it made her smell cute and fluffy! 😀 Not sure you carry the fluffy baby duck scent?? 😀 xx

  13. Mrs Diane Darby says:

    Em! my mum may not smell like Eternity ! but the little and often ,feels like it .
    That said ,we all need our mum .x

  14. Melt says:

    Hi Jennifer….how we all need someone to say this to us and remind us that all will be well.e
    And as for the fragrance…w now have an adorable picture of your mum in our mind…as you say cute and fluffy ( but hopefully not yellow!) many thanks…meltx

  15. boomboom says:

    Best piece of advice? “Never wear a mini skirt with those legs.” Sad, but true,we don’t know where my strange legs came from, definitely not my mum or Grandma…. maybe my Uncle Bob?.

    My mum’s favourite flower is the freesia but her favourite perfumes have always been strong scents, from Opium in her youth to Tom Ford tobacco vanille at the moment. I suppose you could say she’s fun and fresh with a dark sense of humour.

  16. Becky Elford says:

    “Stop caring about what others think about you, because once you do so, only then will you be able enjoy your life”. My mam likes an array of scents, but her favourites are strawberry and vanilla 🙂

  17. Melt says:

    Only a mum can be THAT honest…..she sounds delightful. Many thanks for making us smile…

  18. Melt says:

    Thanks Becky……tough one to acheive….but true! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. meltx

  19. Lauren Spear says:

    Children are supposed to be muddy, it shows they’re having fun 🙂
    Mum did a lot of washing when we were little!
    If mum was a scent she would be the smell of a real wood fire, warm and comforting.
    Making you feel at home 🙂

  20. ellie_meehan says:

    “Don’t buy what you can’t afford………….& if you MUST have plastic clear the balance every month!”

    Mum shared these words of wisdom with us all as we left for college, got our first jobs, flats etc
    .
    It’s a habit I followed & I still do exactly that, to this day

    I passed the same advice on to my daughters & it’s as relevant now as it was when it was dispensed to us way back in the 70’s

    Mum’s an avid gardener & from being small kids we were always encouraged to help her…..digging, planting, pulling up weeds?
    We all had our own little plot in the garden where we could plant bulbs, seeds, herbs etc…………so if she was a fragrance it would be a blend of earthy, herbal & floral smells………her favourite is carnation

  21. Tracey says:

    Blimey, not sure if i can think of any particular piece of advice, as my mum has always been a more “learn by your mistakes” kind of person, rather than a pearl of wisdom giver. She has always been there for me through thick and thin, couldn’t ask for more.
    If my beautiful mum was a fragrance, i’d think the smell after the rain – such a comforting smell, just like her comforting hugs.

  22. Jude Holliday says:

    Do what you enjoy and makes you happy. Um the smell would be towelling dressing gown!

  23. Melt says:

    Ahhhh….love this Lauren, sensible and fun all at the same time! And the smell of warm logs has to be one of the very best, & why we created our Nutmeg & Vetiver fragrance. Thank you meltx

  24. Melt says:

    Hi there Ellie, thank you so much for “sharing” your mum with us. Solid advice so she had to be a gardener! Carnation is beautiful….we are working on a new range of flower oils and Carnation is one on the list! Meltx

  25. Melt says:

    Good for mum…although it must take some real strength to actually administer. Re the “after rain” fragrance…it’s one that perfumers try and bottle but never have! It’s beautiful and reminds you that everything passes and starts anew….lovely. Meltx

  26. Melt says:

    Hi Jude, thanks so much for this…it’s what every mum should say! And the “towelling dressing gown” fragrance says it all really; soft, warm, snugly. Meltx

  27. Mundeep Schmitz says:

    There is nothing there you can’t do. My mum would be the smell of roses – just like her much loved roses in the garden.

  28. Elspeth Fowler says:

    Always to wear clean underwear in case you get hit by a bus! She would be Chanel No 5 as it’s classy and sweet and sophisticated.

  29. Anna says:

    Be the best version of yourself you can be. A roast because she is always cooking and is a jolly good cook

  30. Sharon Brett says:

    When my Mum used to say “If you want my advice…….!” It didn’t matter if you wanted it or not,you got the advice!
    My mother’s fragrance would be Lilac;I could never pronounce this as a child and she would constantly ask me to name the lilac flowers in front of my friends!

  31. Eramys Pepper says:

    My mum has never really given me any advice! She’d be the scent of chocolate 🙂

  32. barbara daniels says:

    white musk because she is distinctive

  33. Rosalind Sargent says:

    best advise my mum told me was to be my self and to be proud of who I am, Eternity is the fragrance I would name Why? because she is in my heart forever from here to Eternity

  34. Laura Mackinnon says:

    My mum always said enthusiasm will get you everywhere in life (so true), the flower I would choose would be orchid because she’s strong ( orchid strong smelling)

  35. Fiona says:

    Best advice my mother gave me was to control my budgeting by jotting down outgoings each week. The fragrance would be something cheerful and uplifting like: Sunflowers & rose

  36. FawcettSA says:

    Travel as much as you can, as far as you can, as long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.
    As for a fragrance, I always remember the smell of warm homemade ginger biscuits straight from the oven as a little girl, so every time I smell ginger it makes me think of my mum

  37. paul says:

    Don’t put off what you can do today until tomorrow .
    Stewed tea would be her smell as she always had a pot on the go

  38. Kirsten Stewart says:

    Best advice was to know your own mind and as for fragrance, I would say Almonds as she is a complete nut

  50. kevin creasey says:

    Its not just the advice my mum gave me, its what she showed me! She showed me to always make the best of myself. Never did I ever see my mum leave the house without her make up and perfectly styled hair. The house was always immaculate but unique and comfortable. Her personality and beauty imprints on everything and everyone! Ive grown to hopefully do the same.
    if my mum were a fragrance she would be fresh tulips. Not only are they beautiful, bold, sweet smelling, they make the world and home a better place!

  110. Elizabeth Gurney says:

    As long as someone is kind then that is someone you want to know. And she’s so right! That advice has also made me a better a person and has reminded me to always show kindness to others.

    1. “Trust your instincts” is one of a few good pieces of advice she gave me & 2. Eucalyptus – a soothing fragrance for when you’re feeling at your worst!

  115. Louise says:

  116. jo price says:

  122. alison clark says:

    Think about it first – I wish id have listened to her, Clinique aromatics its her favourite and you dont smell it often so when i do it always reminds me of her.

  123. Ruth Grover says:

    Esther Lauder. Youth Dew as her favourite. Best ever advice, don’t ever let anyone’s advice change your head when your heart is telling you what to do !

    My mum would be a floral burst of fragrance!

  136. AliThorpe says:

    The best piece of advice was to take risks; it’s easier to live with an “oh well” than a “what if?”.

    My mum would be a fresh, “green” fragrance with white musk, vetiver, lavender, geranium and a touch of bergamot as she is always gardening and she loves the sun and holidays so these are the fragrances which spring to mind for me.

  137. Alix Johnson says:

    Friends before fellas.

    My mum would be a sweet, nutty fragrance because she is very sweet and ever so slightly nuts.

    Mom’s are ALWAYS right! Marc Jacobs – Daisy because she’s beautiful 🙂

  142. Lesley Bain says:

    Never accept anything less than the best 🙂 Chanel No. 5 because she is classy and beautiful x

  143. Ruth Hedges says:

    To treat yourself with kindness – her favourite fragrance is Beautiful by Estée Lauder because that’s what she is Beautiful! x

  144. sarahfleck says:

    less is more and as long as your loo is clean in the house you can be forgiven for having a bad day if the rest is a mess. – for a fragrance she would be something sweet but a bit fruity just like her

  145. shirleyharpley says:

    My Mum told me to always believe in myself, as I was a bit lacking in confidence. She would be lily of the valley, fresh and cheerful.

  146. Michelle Hughes says:

    Always Trust your instinct. She would be lemon as shes turning into a bitter woman lately x

  147. Mikey Delgrosso says:

    Help others when they need it, think of them first.

    2. – She would be Cool Waters women by Davidoff… because she is mighty cool.

  148. Fred_Baron says:

    1. A trouble shared is a trouble halved.

    2. My Mother would be Chanel No.5, because she’s effortlessly chic and classy 🙂

  149. c5ryl says:

    My Mum always taught me to buy clothes to suit my figure, not the latest fashion fad. She would be Chanel No 5, classy, effortless and timeless

  150. Singers says:

    Never go to sleep on an argument. As for the smell; a mixture of a wisp of Elnett and a smidge of Nivea Creme (the one in the blue pot), her beauty mainstays.

  151. ♫ Alison M ♪ says:

    Its better in the waste than on the waist! She would be lily of the valley mixed with baking because she was always cooking and it was her favourite perfume

  152. Claire Hildreth says:

    Without needlessly hurting others, do whatever you need to do to be happy. She would be neroli. Classic, complex and utterly unique.

  153. Sonikmummy says:

    Advice: always wear knickers to bed – u never kno when your house might be on fire and you have to climb down a ladder, in your nightie! Smell – lily of the valley, the perfume mum wore when I was young.

  154. Sara Heckles says:

    Always treat others the way you’d like to be treated yourself. And her scent is of summer, sun protection lotion and sunshine 🙂

  155. Kirsty KJaybaby Caffrey says:

    Best piece of advise ….to follow my heart and do what I want to do, not what I think everyone else expects me to do!

    If my mum was a fragrance she would be daffodil – bright, sunny, cheerful, beautifully fragranced and always makes you smile x
