Who doesn’t love a good wax melt? Wax melts are the epitome of a cosy evening on the sofa snuggled up with a blanket watching films with the melt burner glowing and filling the room with a beautiful scent.
I came across Cloud 9 when the lovely Hannah, who makes the melts, got in touch and offered to send me some scents of my choice and I jumped at the chance! I had a look on her website and was overwhelmed by the vast variety of scents available!
There were over 100 different scents to choose from and as Autumn is in full swing with Winter on the way I had to choose some seasonal scents.
After much deliberation I decided on Cherry Bakewell, Chocolate Orange and Gingerbread. I received individual melt pots in Cherry and Orange which are £1.20 each and Gingerbread in a 6 cube bar* which is £4 and they all smell absolutely incredible!
All of Cloud 9 Wax Melts are handmade from 100% Eco Soy Wax in the UK. I love supporting small businesses here in the UK that hand make products, it’s super satisfying knowing your money is going to a business where care is taken to make each and every item sent to their customers.
So lets get down to business – how they burn. There is a handy guide on how to use the melts on the website – it is recommended you pop the individual pots onto your burner whole, and 1 cube from the bar for a subtle scent or 2 for a stronger smell.
My gosh do these little melts give off a hella scent! Cloud 9 has managed to get the perfect level of fragrance that isn’t too overpowering – it’s enough to fill a room without making you feel overwhelmed.
After about 15 minutes once the wax has melted into the burner, the room is filled with a beautiful scent and it lasts as long as it’s lit. I went upstairs and could smell it on the stairs and again in the hallway as I came back into the living room, they pack a serious punch but cannot stress enough it is not at all overpowering.
Each of the scents I’ve tried smell literally good enough to eat and are so pleasant I am in love with them, I was literally sat burning my Cherry Bakewell melt and all night I was saying how obsessed I am was the scent to the point where the boy was like alright I get it! Chocolate Orange smells just like Terry’s and Gingerbread literally smells like Christmas!
These wax melts absolutely knock Yankee Candle out the park in terms of filling a room, lasting and even the scents themselves. I find YC scents can be a bit sickly and perfumey for the limited time they last, but Cloud 9 have these just right and they smell exactly like the product they are modelled after.
I cannot praise Cloud 9 enough and I will definitely be buying more of these. I am so chuffed I’ve finally found a wax melt company that make melts that smell exactly like my favourite foods and manage to fill a room and have serious lasting power.
The melts are such good value for money at £1.20 individually or £4 for the bar which look like little chocolate bars. The packaging is super cute and looks smart and professional and is unlike anything else I’ve seen. I love Cloud 9’s logo with a little girl holding the cloud. These would make amazing gifts and would be perfect as a stocking filler for the certain holiday looming or as a treat for yourself for a cosy evening in.
The scents also include birthday cake and wedding day and scents to help you sleep – the list is absolutely endless and I cannot wait to work my way down the list. Please follow Cloud 9 on Instagram and Twitter and show your support to the lovely Hannah and her fabulous little handmade business.
