Intro To My Wax Melt Review
The candle company Man Brand Candles is new to me and one I was happy to review. While I don’t like to think of scents as masculine or feminine, I know there are a lot of shoppers out there that like looking for candle scents for men. This fun company caters to that notion and has plenty of options at reasonable prices. I was happy to review a few products from this line, including wax melts in the scent Black Currant.
The wax melt packages from Man Brand Candles are in typical clamshell style packaging. The outside package had a nice, big label that helped easily identify the company and scent name. Once I popped the lid open – surprise! All white wax melt cubes with the cutest black mustache embed in the corner. I love that the company was keeping with the entire theme of their candle line with this little touch.
On cold sniff I got exactly what I expected – sweet and juicy with a bit of tartness. I thought the cold sniff was fairly strong, too. Looking at the website’s scent description:
Black currants surrounded by warm vanilla with a light exotic patchouli hint.
I wasn’t getting the warm vanilla or patchouli notes, but I figured that may come out once the wax was warmed.
I normally melt two cubes of a wax melt at a time, but I was stuck in the office and I was anxious to give this one a try. I ended up using one wax melt cube in my plugin warmer that uses a 15W bulb. The wax was soft and started melting soon after being placed in the bowl. I immediately started noticing that sweet-tangy mix I got on cold sniff. Mmmm – divine! There was an added warmth to the scent that I’m going to attribute to the patchouli, though I didn’t pick that note out individually. I don’t think I ever detected the vanilla, but it was still a fabulous scent.
I was amazed at how well this one cube scented up my office space in this low-wattage melter. The scent itself was moderately strong but it threw like crazy – on out into the hallway. Everyone who entered my office wanted to know what that fabulous smell was. I kept the wax in my melter, turning it on and off during the day to not overwhelm passersby.
How Did My Wax Melt Perform?
This wax melt performed well. The scent and throw were as mentioned above. The wax melt itself lasted a long time – I kept it in my office melter for the full week, enjoying its delectable scent.
Closing To My Wax Melt Review
I was impressed with my first go-round with Man Brand Candles. The wax melts themselves are charming and this particular scent was a good one. The website is not the easiest to navigate, but that’s a small blip in an otherwise remarkable experience. Keep your eyes peeled for more reviews from this brand.
