As big fans of Melt and regular readers of our blog will know, we’ve announced the lucky winner of our first #acandleisnotjustforchristmas competition! Our special Valentine’s Day hamper, chock full of gorgeous handmade candles and luxury reed diffusers, went to Mrs Diane Darby.
We loved Diane’s competition entry – it was original, moving and evoked some really vivid memories from a time when her children were growing up:
“Wet leaves , acorns under your feet, smoke in the air from burning leaves. Laughter as my children watch the squirrels, and fill their bags with cones. Damp and muddy but happy in the knowledge they are helping to create the Christmas decorations while I’m creating memories. Returning home, waiting for the cones to dry out before turning the kitchen table into our creative haven.
“My children have all grown up but do exactly the same with their own families. A picture can paint a thousand words but fragrance stimulates the senses from which we feel: there’s nothing like it.”
The scent of a family home is warm, reassuring and something that we never forget – even after years and years. At Melt, we adore the fact that our luxury scented candles, made with only the best quality essential oils, will be the defining fragrance for so many homes.
The lovely Diane was thrilled to be chosen as our first #acandleisnotjustforchristmas winner, saying:
“Dear all at Melt,
Thank you so much for choosing my entry – I feel like a child at Christmas!!! I love your candles.
I really had to look twice as I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I’d hoped to win the wonderful hamper, but I never expected to.
Your candles should be on prescription as they’re most definitely therapeutic!!!”
We only wish our candles were available on prescription, Diane! We think they’re just what the doctor ordered 😉
Missed out on our Melty treat?
Don’t worry if you weren’t a winner this time – this competition is just the first in a long line of #acandleisnotjustforChristmas that we’re planning here at Melt!
We’ll be cooking up contests for other landmarks over the course of 2014, so stay tuned to our blog (or follow us on Twitter) to be the first to know when there are more of our luxury scented candles to be won!
For now, though, the whole team at Melt would like to say a big THANK YOU! to everyone who entered our competition. We hope you all had a very happy Valentine’s Day.
PS: If you fancy a scented candle selection box of your own and you just can’t wait, our taster boxes are on offer! Five gorgeous fragrances of your choice for under £30 – so make sure you give your other half a nudge.
