Scentsy wax melts- any alternatives?

I really love some of the scentsy Christmas and autumn scents, but I don’t want to support a MLM. Although I guess buying from someone already stuck will help them.
Anyone found an independent buyer that is similar to the scentsy ones?
Or if not, what are people’s favourite/new scentsy ones?

Man, I hate MLMs and can’t believe I am thinking about buying from them, I was gifted this one. But then buying from someone who’s been conned into it doesn’t seem as evil?

I like Cheshire Candle Company melts and buy both their Espresso and Gingerbread melts. Together they smell gorgeous. Their strawberry and Prosecco ones are lovely too but a bit summery.

I also liked Manchester Candles and Folly and Roses melts, both from Etsy. I didn’t buy Christmas ones though.

Or if anyone has a relative selling them, I’d rather buy from someone suckererd in.

Hi,
I know someone who makes the most divine wax melts and candles. She is a one woman outfit and makes everything in her kitchen and includes flowers and foliage that she collects herself. I have bought from her three times and every time I was delighted with my purchases. One also passed the 'mum test' as I gave my mum one of her bell jar candles for her birthday and she loved it and asked for her shop address.
The shop is called Canan an Solas and it is here:

I recently bought from Scents at No3. They popped up on Instagram and tried them. Will definitely buy again

I buy from Northern Soul Scents, some very unusual and interesting scents, their Vintage Bookstore is my favourite.

I agree with this. Her wax melts are lovely.
I believe the lady who makes them built her company up while going through treatment for breast cancer and has just recently finished

I buy from saffie bea, a lady in harrogate, she has just restocked her shop with hmthis years autumn scents (she does new drops all the time) but they all go quick. Been using her for years, really amazing wax melts, never buy anything else now.

I previously bought CandleBelle and they were amazing, but I went back to buy more and they had closed down. They were the perfect ones for me, so I guess it’s them I’m looking to emulate if anyone found a similar range.

Coast Candles are amazing, they're fairly pricey but oh so worth it.

BirdyBee Mon 04-Oct-21 11:04:45

Sassy wax melts are really lovely and last for ages they do a huge range of scents

Gingernaut Mon 04-Oct-21 11:09:37

Most supermarkets will have some wax melts

Yankee Candles will have a range of Christmas scents as well.

SquareYellow Mon 04-Oct-21 11:11:45

Thanks, I have an electric burner and it heats up slightly cooler than a candle one. I found the Yankee melts didn’t melt for me, so do any of the suggestions need a candle burner?

www.twiningshomefragrance.com/ This is a fairly small company but my absolute favourite. Another really good one is “hollys house”.

@SquareYellow I use a family business called the pouring house. There scents are amazing!! They don't just do wax melts they do candles and diffusers and all sorts. Price is pretty decent too. They always have sales too! Well worth looking at.

I had the same issue with Yankee melts and my scentsy warmer.

I'm following as I also really need some autumn and Christmas scents!

I've just ordered three from her! So much cheaper than the scenery bars and they look bigger as well.

I've gone for crackling log fire, palo Santo and misty morning 🥰
