Cosy Candles Review by Chloe – April 2019

If you have read any of my previous reviews for Cosy Candles you will know I am a candle/wax melt addict and seem to have an ever growing collection of home fragrances. If you are someone like me who shares an obsession for new and exciting scents then this box is perfect for you. Cosy Candles also have their own wax melt burners, reed diffusers and candles all on their website. All the wax melts are made from soy and handmade so every effort goes into putting the boxes together for you all to enjoy and indulge. This month’s box brings you a beautiful range of fresh, sweet and floral scents for you to fill your home. Each month’s box is tailored to the time of year, season and complimenting scents.

If you missed my live unboxing you can check it out here on our YouTube channel:

The box arrived via royal mail 48 hour, the new packaging means it is no longer letterbox sized but a small parcel instead. The melts are in a cardboard box that can be recycled and opens up to display the classic yellow tissue paper and pink sticker with the Cosy Candles logo on. Inside these are this month’s contents card which has a brief description of this month’s scents and a list of the scents included. There is also a handy leaflet on how to use your cosy pods. Inside the tissue paper are 4 different wax melts, I like this as it provides variety every month and you are likely to find new fragrances to fall in love with.


  • Contents card
  • Using your cosy pods instruction card

  • Apple Candy wax melt – This is a sweet fruity scent that lingers for a long time after melting. It reminds me of apple flavoured sweets so this is definitely one for those of you who enjoy a sweet smelling melt.

  • Spring Awakening wax melt – This wax melt is a fresh uplifting scent perfect to fill your home with to introduce the spring and summer months. You can smell fresh spring flowers along with notes of patchouli that leave you feeling revitalised.
  • Vanilla wax melt – This is a rich creamy vanilla wax melt, always a classic! It is the perfect mix of sweet and musk so it isn’t overwhelming. It gives of a warming feel when melting and is more of a cosy evening scent in my opinion.


  • Velvet Rose & Oud wax melt – This is a deep velvety rose scent that evokes fresh picked roses. The oud in the melt adds a woody fragrance to the soft floral notes which gives it a true feminine scent.

These melts are all 110 grams in size which are HUGE, bigger than the palm of my hand! Cosy Candles have had a revamp so now you receive 4 110g melts instead of the 6 80 gram ones. You are still getting a good variety of fragrances all from different scent types.


Each 110g melt retails at £5.00 making the box total to £20.00! To buy this box it would cost you £10.50 including delivery with our exclusive discount code ‘30OFF’! Saving you £8.50 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 4 handcrafted, surprise scents. However there are other options too if this doesn’t tickle your fancy.

As well as the standard subscription box in which the scents are picked randomly each month they also offer a customised boxes! These are priced at £17.00 and you can choose 4 fragrances from the drop down list.

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 the cosy candle team will be more than happy to help.

Final thoughts:

Overall I think this box is convenient and amazing value for money with some great smelling wax melts. 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 always look forward to the next month full of goodies. 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.
