“ Brand: 4kandles / Type: Melting wax for oil or wax burners „
Since discovering the website 4kandles.co.uk last year and ordering some free samples which were available at that time, I have became quite a fan of their products and service.
I particularly like to purchase their melting wax cakes as they offer really good value for money and it is a great way to try out the different scents available without spending a lot of money.
'Love Spell' was one of the scented melting wax cakes I chose in my original free bundle and I liked it so much I purchased some more.
These melting wax cakes are often more commonly known as wax tarts when purchasing melting wax from other brands and these cakes here come in a small 6g size which you simply drop into an oil or wax tart burner, light a tealight to place underneath, then as the wax melts the scent of the wax slowly fills the room.
The fragrance of Love Spell melting wax is difficult to describe and when looking it up on the 4kandles website, you will find it listed under their 'FUN' range. You will find all the fragrances listed under headings such as Floral or Fruity for example, making it easy to search for products based on the type of fragrances you prefer.
The Love Spell wax is a dark pink - reddish colour and before melting the cake I thought the wax had a musky scent, with maybe a hint of berries. I certainly liked it and looked forward to melting it in my burner.
After placing one 6g wax cake in my burner, I lit a tealight, placed it underneath and a couple of minutes later as the wax began to melt I could detect the scent from the wax. Just using one 6g wax cake is enough I find to fill my room with a lovely fragrance which is musky without being heavy and also has maybe a hint of strawberry.
I allowed the tealight to burn out which took around 3 hours and the entire time it was burning I could smell the fragrance in the room. The good thing about these wax cakes and what makes them good value, is that the next day I can place another tealight into the burner without adding any more wax and find the fragrance is just as strong. Indeed, the fragrance from just one wax cake lasts me around 5 days when burning one tealight a day. I was quite surprised by this as the information on the website states that you can expect around 4 hours from one 6g cake, possibly at a reduced throw. Of course the fragrance does fade but I find it is still strong enough for my needs after 6 hours and I am still happy enough with the fragrance for another 6 hours after that at least!
You can of course place more than one 6g wax cake in your burner, but I personally find that just one is enough. If you prefer a much stronger fragrance then simply add another wax cake to the burner. The Love Spell fragrance also hangs in the air for quite some time after the tealight has burned out or been extinguished.
It is possible to purchase just one 6g wax cake from 4kandles.co.uk and these are priced at just 25p each. Or if you prefer, you can purchase a pack of 4x6g melting wax cakes for just 75p, which of course means you are getting one 6g cake free.
Another option is to purchase the 'Fun' collection, which includes six packs of wax cakes. There are 4x6g cakes in each pack and apart from Love Spell, you also receive their Bubble Gum, Candy Floss, Coconut Shy, Sherbert and Spiced Wassail fragranced melting wax. These 24 wax cakes are priced at £4.50 with free delivery. Not bad at all, considering how many hours of fragrance you receive.
It is worth spending some time browsing the website as you can mix and match fragrances and there are other items available such as burners etc. They also accept Paypal which I found particularly helpful. 4kandles also run a reward points scheme where you collect points with each purchase. More information on this is available on the website.
To help preserve the environment, all the melting wax contains natural soya produced from 100% sustainable resources that are free of fossilised hydrocarbons, which means no polluting fumes in your home.
Melting wax from 4kandles.co.uk is a great alternative to purchasing wax tarts and candles from other well known brands. I cannot fault the products or service at all. I have purchased Love Spell melting wax on two occasions now and will be back for more. The only problem I have is deciding which fragrances to order as there hasn't been any I haven't liked yet!
