If you’re a keen follower of ours on social media (hello!) you may have recently seen us ask to see your Melt Moments. It’s a notion that suddenly came to us one day while working in the chandlery – basically, the idea is to celebrate the unique way we each spend time with our luxury scented candles. But, you may be asking, what exactly is a Melt Moment? We’ll explain!
In a nutshell, Melt Moments are all about the individual ‘me time’ that each of us take to enjoy our own scented candles – however, wherever and whenever we like. As you’ll know if you’ve ever taken a look through our range, we have a huge variety of luxury candles, each with their own distinct scents and personalities. For similar reasons, there’s a huge amount of variation between Melt Moments, but that’s part of what makes them so special – almost every one of them is unique!
We’ve already had some wonderful Melt Moments sent in to us, or mentioned in passing by customers visiting our little shop on the farm. (If you’re one of those who have, thank you so much – we’ve been really enjoying them!) Here are three examples to get you thinking about yours:
As you might imagine, relaxation is a popular one! One of our favourite relaxation Melt Moments involves a steamy spa bath with some quiet music playing in the background, and Lavender burning gently on the windowsill, filling the room with its soft scents. Bliss!
This is particularly touching for us. Several of our customers like to use our Angel scented candle to remember a loved one who has passed away. We’ve talked before about how this is actually quite a common use for scented candles, because they’re quiet and respectful and symbolic. Lots of our customers use Angel for this purpose especially, because of its natural associations with peace and heaven.
This is a lovely Melt Moment if you’ve got the time! Scented candles are ideal to use for peace and meditation, clearing the mind and soul at the end of a tough day or week. People have their own favourite scents for this sort of thing, but they tend to lean towards the lighter candles, such as Blush, White or Carnation.
These are just a few examples, and your own Melt Moment doesn’t have to fit strictly into those categories – in fact, the whole point is that it’s how you like to spend time with your candles, regardless of what everyone else is doing!
