Firstly I would like to thank Cosy Candles for sending me their box to review; I am a candle/wax melt addict so this box is perfect for people like me! My first impressions were good and their website is very easy to use. Their social media pages also keep you up to date with any new deals and discounts! Be sure to check them out for all updates. They are soy wax melts and handmade, so every effort goes into putting the boxes together for you all to enjoy and indulge.
If you missed my live unboxing you can check it out here on our YouTube channel:
The box arrived via Royal Mail and was letterbox sized so I didn’t need to worry about being in to receive it, always a plus! The box is white, tied with a black ribbon, and has a sticker with their logo on. Simple but sleek.
Inside the box are 6 different wax melts with the theme of spring. Having 6 different scents is great for trying something new that you wouldn’t normally pick yourself.

There are all 80 grams in size which is huge! I would say you can get at least 10 uses out of each wax melt. You can use them on their own or mix together 2 scents you really love to try something new.
Each 80g melt retails at £3.99 making the box total to £23.96! To buy this box it would cost you £14.99 including delivery! Saving you £8.87 much cheaper than if you were to buy them individually. This is the price for the standard cosy pod subscription box which is the one I received. This gives you approximately 480 hours of fragrance! It includes 6 handcrafted surprise scents. However, there are other options too if this doesn’t tickle your fancy.
They offer a mini melts subscription box which costs £9.99 including delivery. This box includes 28 x highly scented, hand poured, soy wax melts, 4 x different scents each month weighing 5g. This totals to approximately 140 hours of fragrance per box!
As well as these 2 boxes which the scents are picked randomly, you can subscribe to their customised boxes! They have the same 2 options of the cosy pod box with 6 different 80g melts or the mini melt box with 28 x 5g melts in 4 different scents. The customised boxes are priced at £16.99 for the cosy pod box. Or £11.99 for the mini melt box. Both boxes still save you money than if you were to buy the melts elsewhere or individually. If you go for these options it gives you a list of scents to choose from.

How it works:
Your subscription will automatically renew each month on the date you sign up. You can expect to receive your box within 5-7 days of payment. Delivery is free and you can cancel your subscription at any time (no sooner than 7 days before your renewal date) so there’s no commitment needed. This is great as I know some months can be financially tough so this gives you the option to stop and start your subscription whenever you like. My experience with their customer service team has been brilliant so I am confident that if you have any queries they will be more than happy to help.
Time to see what my thoughts are on the scents:
The strongest smelling melts were black cherry and rose, 2 very classic scents that are loved by most. Black cherry isn’t personally for me so I gifted it to my friend who absolutely loves the scent! However the rose melt has got to be one of my favourites. I only used a small piece which filled not only my living room but the whole flat with the sweet floral aroma. I am very impressed with the throw from these wax melts as you can have it melting in the background filling the whole room!
My favourite out of the 6 was musk and sandalwood. I am a sucker for woody and unusual smells which this definitely is. It is not too musky so still smells fresh and not too over powering. I normally have this melting in my hallway so when people come to visit it is the first thing they notice and I have received many compliments about the smell. Perfect for day to day use or to use when you have guests visiting and want your home to smell delicious.
Vanilla and blueberry is probably the sweetest smelling out of the 6 being very fruity. The blueberry is the main scent with a hint of vanilla whilst melting, this is my partner’s favourite as he loves sweet smells and finds them relaxing. He likes to use it whilst in the bath or in the evening.
Overall I think this box is convenient and great value for money. Considering the sizes of the wax melts and the 480 hours of fragrance you get I cannot fault them. The wax melts themselves are strong, but not overpowering, easy to use and cut into smaller pieces; they can be mixed together or used alone and come in reusable packaging. The fact that they are handmade highly scented, and soy wax melt means it is a great business to buy from. Cosy candles are continuously bringing out new fragrances which are exciting and I look forward to seeing what they release in the future! So what are you waiting for?! Go check out their website whilst there’s a discount code and order for yourself as a treat, or gift someone you love with a great subscription box! Enjoy!
