Everyone loves candles, right? I have at least have a dozen throughout each room in the house. Whether morning, afternoon or night, I like lighting scented candles to keep me revived, refreshed and relaxed. One candle I have been turning to a lot in my office room is this Saddle candle from Melt. Melt comes from a the beautiful Lancashire Ribble Valley, lovingly made along with candle holders, reed diffusers and luxury products at Backridge Farm. Along with their own products, Melt also supply some pretty well known brands in the beauty World such as This Works and Dr Hauschka. Hand pouring their candles, each candle is carefully worked over to ensure they are fragranced and complimented with high quality materials and ingredients with no synthetic ingredients or scents in sight. Each fragrance is developed from the very beginning stage right through to packaging of these beautifully presented candles, with fine fragrance houses and taking up to 36 hours to produce. A lot of hard work and passion goes into these fragrances and candles. 

I was recently asked if I would like to try a Melt candle and after browsing the site (for what must have been at least a whole afternoon) I became completely lost in the real huge variety of fragrances and candle types and sizes available. I opted for Saddle, with rich woods and spices pulling through. It's a scent which you probably wouldn't automatically associate as a scent girls might like but it has an insane warmth to it, with an unbelievable richness to it. Scents of lavender, geranium, rose, lily and patchouli all pull through to make what could be a very masculine scent that touch more soft and subtle. There's also sandal, cedar musk, moss and amber in there, making it a scent which really does entice the senses. This is a scent which pulls through when lit and the scent lingers long after the candle has been blown out. It's really quite beautiful and I love the way the scent lingers from room to room creating a gorgeous atmosphere in the house. With a burning time of up to 70 hours for the size of candle I have, it even beats the likes of NEOM in the lasting stakes. I'll be sad to see this scent finish, with just half the candle left to burn. But there are a few other scents which I am really intrigued by which I plan to give a go after my beloved and much used Saddle candle has all but gone. The Saddle scent is available in six varieties of size and burn time and you can find out more on the Melt website. What candle scent are you loving lately?
