Fragrance Story

In the heart of the Loire valley, behind tuffeau limestone walls and imposing green gates, lies an old Maison de Maître. Beyond the large double doors lies an elegant bourgeois mansion with charming hosts waiting to welcome you. Join us as we once again travel back to the Maison, bordering the canal d’Orléans. Enter the tree-lined garden, heady with the aroma of orange blossom, the sound of classical music drifting through the open windows. Enjoy the sparkling glass of Crémant de Loire as you relax in the tranquil surroundings. As night sets in, candles are lit, transforming the garden into something quite magical.

Wax melt care

Always keep wax melts and burners out of reach of children and pets

To use your wax melts safely;
  • Ensure that your wax melter is specifically designed for wax melts (at least 10cm distance from flame to dish if using a non electric melter). Using a melter that is too small can quickly cause the valuable essential oils to evaporate, meaning your melt will only offer scent for a short period of time, instead of the average time as shown for each melt
  • Always use wax melters on a heat resistant surface
  • Place one of your wax melts into the dish (or half if the dish is small/shallow), ensuring that you do not overfill your bowl
  • Never mix 2 or more different scented wax melts together
  • Always use wax melters within sight and never leave unattended
  • If you are using an electric melter, ensure that you locate this in a safe place, being careful to avoid the cord hanging over the edge of a table or counter, and make sure the cord itself is not in contact with any hot surfaces
  • Never use wax melters within reach of children or pets
  • The body of melters will become hot during use, do not touch when in use
  • Do not try to move the melter until it has cooled completely and the wax has solidified
  • Keep the wax clear of dust and debris at all times
  • Only ever use small unscented tea lights, if using a non electric melter and ensure that the tea light has a maximum of 4 hour burn time
  • Use a melter for no more than 4 hours at any one time
  • After removing a used melt, always wipe your used dish with a damp cloth/paper towel and ensure it is dry before adding a new scent to the melter
  • To avoid deterioration and protect the integrity of the essential oils in the product, store the melts in a cool, dark place away from sunlight and don’t mix melts in the same bag/storage space, as this can result in contamination of aromas from the different melts
  • To get the best aroma and therapeutic benefit from the melts use within 6 months of purchase
  • Never allow water/oil or any other liquid to come into contact with the wax melt
  • Wax melts are not suitable for consumption – keep out of reach of children and pets


Replacing the wax melt

Our wax melts are created to provide their scent for between 8-16 hours, depending on size (see individual packs for specific timings). This does not mean that the wax will disappear after this time, simply that the scent will no longer be present, as the oils will have evaporated due to the heat. Once the scent has faded from the melt, you will need to remove the leftover wax before you can add another melt to your melter. The removed wax can be disposed of in your normal household rubbish. Do not add in any other fragrance or essential oil to the leftover wax.

There are a number of ways to remove wax from the melter, the easiest way is to is to blow out the tea light candle, wait until the wax has solidified, then:

  • If you are using our wax melts with one of our Maison Vivi melters, you should find it is actually very easy to simply lift the edge of the hardened melt away from the cooled melter (using the edge of a spoon) and the hardened wax will pop out easily
  • Or place the dish (if it is a removable one) into the freezer for around 10 minutes, this will help the wax to shrink from the container, then simply pop it out for disposal. If using this method for removing wax melts, always ensure that you allow the dish to return to room temperature before using with a new melt, or it may crack from the heat of the tea light
  • If you are using an electric melter, or your melter does not have a removable dish, the best way to remove the wax cleanly, is to switch off the power, or blow out the tea light candle and wait until the wax has just finished solidifying. You should then be able to remove the remaining wax with the edge of a spoon or wipe it out using a piece of kitchen paper

Keep out of reach of children and pets

All our wax melts are made by hand and created with our own unique blends of pure essential oils and natural coconut blended wax. Our melts are sold in packs of 2 inside handmade linen bags, making them an ideal gift option. Each individual melt will provide around 12- 16 hours of fragrance for you.

The beauty of wax melts is that, unlike candles, you don’t need to worry about trimming the wick or burning them for a minimum amount of time to ensure an even burn, making them an ideal choice when you want to add fragrance to your room for a short time. To use a melt, place one into the bowl of your wax melter and pop one small tea light underneath. (unless you have an electric melter, in which case, you simply turn it on). Leave it to melt for anything from 10 minutes to 4 hours at a time. The aroma is released as soon as the wax begins to melt, meaning they’re a perfect choice if you want to use them to accompany you during a yoga session for example. Once you blow out the tea light (or turn off your electric melter), the molten melts will solidify and you can reuse these at a later stage, until such time that the aroma has faded, when you will need to remove the wax before using a new one in your melter.
