I know it’s early and I know the C word should be banned until after the amazing holiday that is Hallowe’en but hear me out. Last year I had some serious stock issues with COVID and Brexit and the Suez Canal. All of that on top of the usual Christmas demand and it was all a bit of a nightmare. To keep ahead of this, I have planned the Christmas range extra early and made attempts to have all the materials needed to make them sooner rather than later. I should keep them a secret and release them at an appropriate time but I can’t do that, I’m far too excited.

So let’s start with the Winter Melt Collection. This breaks away from our core range and includes four new and limited edition scents. The collection contains two melts in each scent and will be over 80 hours melting time. So without further ado, here are the scents:

Winter Cottage
A sweet and woody accord with fresh top notes of eucalyptus and zesty lemon leading to a warm heart with a hint of spice on a base of pine, sandalwood, cedarwood and vetiver and rich opulent amber.
Top notes: Eucalyptus, lemon.
Mid notes: Cinnamon, clove
Base notes: pine, sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver and amber.
Sweet Orange & Spiced Apple
A warm festive accord opening with sweet orange and spiced apple leading to a heart of hot spices, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon resting on a base of dry fruits and musk
Top notes: Sweet orange, spiced apple.
Mid notes: hot spices, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon

Do you think you have a favourite already? Depending on the interest for this melt collection I may look to devise seasonal melt boxes which could fit in with our future subscription plans.

You’ll be able to find this Winter Melt Collection at our market stall in Dumfries High Street at The Guild Market Festival on September 11th, then on the website after that. I also have a fantastic Secret Santa gift set ready to reveal for you, but it will be launched at the October market.
