What Are The Strongest Smelling Wax Melts?

Sassy Shop Wax creates premium luxury wax melts that can fill any room with the refreshing scents you love. We have every imaginable scent to delight your senses – from fragrances that remind you of your favourite perfume to fragrances that recall the life-affirming blooms of springtime!

what are the reasons to buy wax melts
Our wax melts are handmade because we care about sending nothing but the best to every home. Ours aren’t the usual wax melts that come in chunks or different shapes. Instead, we produce our wax melts in handy bars that can be easily separated into cubes, giving you the same experience each time you break off and use a piece

Strongest Smelling Wax Melts

Using wax melts in any room can instil a feeling of comfort and peace. Melting fragranced wax has the ability to relieve stress and lift the spirits on a bad day, or to induce feelings of calm when we need it.

Smell is the sense that has the most impact on our emotions, and wax melt bars are the perfect way to destress at the end of a long day or to ensure we are waking up fresh every morning. That’s because our noses are directly connected to the part of the brain that regulates our emotions. And that means it’s beneficial to be more mindful about the scents we surround ourselves with. One way to do that is to use quality fragranced wax melt bars from a professional manufacturer and retailer.

With the extremely wide range of refreshing scents available, it’s not surprising that many of our customers ask which are the strongest smelling perfume wax melts. It’s natural to want to make the most of the experience.

But in fact, different people tolerate different scents in a variety of ways. That’s why there is no specific scent that we would recommend as the strongest or the most powerful in terms of the reactions it invokes. It’s also one of the reasons why we make our wax melt bars the way we do. The strength of the scent can be controlled by the size and number of cubes you place on your wax melter or wax burner.

Using two wax melt cubes at a time can also extend the duration of the scent you’ve chosen. We estimate that two cubes will completely fragrance an area when used on a burner for 12 to 18 hours. And that means uninterrupted fragrance the entire day long.

Interesting Scents to Try

Here at Sassy Shop Wax, we provide such an extensive range of scents that no matter how unique your fragrance preferences might be, there will be one that perfectly suits you and your home. We strive to come up with an unrivalled range of scents, not bettered by any of our competitors, from the familiar fragrances many of us would choose when buying scented candle to the smell of places or things you love and might come across in your everyday life.

If you are looking for a touch of magic, the Snow Pixie bar is one of the best-selling variants in our collection. Its pastel pink colour alone lets you know what to expect once you put a cube or two on your burner. When melted, it gives you the feeling that you’re in a kind of fairyland with snow all around!

If you love the cold, clear smell of a frosty winter’s day, there’s an option for that too. Our Blue Ice Pole wax melt bar gives you that cool feeling that will remind you of how winter feels, but at any time of the year you choose.

If you’d rather smell the blossoms of spring and the soft rains that fall during this season, the Blossom & Spring Rain bar is a good pick. It’s reminiscent of that freshness you only experience during the springtime when nature starts to show off its brightest colours.

There are also scents that will make your bedtime the absolute best time of your day. With the Bedtime Baby wax melt bar, you can sink into your bedsheets as if they’re welcoming you into a warm embrace.

If you’re a sucker for the comforting scent of old books, the Antique Bookstore bar is the perfect choice for you. Imagine that familiar smell you get when you open up an old book and browse through those worn pages. It feels like you’re being transported back in time, back to the days when the book was written.

Some people also find delight and comfort in the smell of fresh laundry, especially when they press their faces against freshly-laundered soft towels. Yes, we have a bar for you, too! Our Soft Towels wax melt bar gives you that clean and refreshing feeling you get when you use those freshly washed and dried towels straight from the laundry.

If you’re inspired by the above, which are some of our bestsellers and are just a taster of what we have in-store, why not browse through our entire catalogue? There are hundreds more scents to suit every preference.

Benefits of Using Wax Melts

Scented wax melts are always a wonderful and inspiring idea, no matter what time of the day it is. But they don’t just make your indoor spaces smell good. They bring a number of other benefits too, even more so than scented candles.

For one thing, our wax melts are made of entirely safe and natural ingredients, as opposed to the harmful paraffin used in candles that can damage not only your walls but also your lungs over the long term. Many people who suffer from asthma and allergies find that the materials used in scented candles can aggravate their symptoms, but not so with wax melts.

Our wax melts are made of soy wax, a completely natural material that comes from soybeans. The scents are usually created by the addition of essential oils that are also derived from plants.

Safety-wise, candles pose far more danger than wax melts. A candle’s flame is larger than the one on the tealight that is traditionally used for burners. Candles tend to be more exposed, and the flame can easily catch any flammable item located in the near vicinity, causing a fire. The tealight in a wax burner is far less exposed, and even better, you also have the option to have no flame at all if you use an electric wax burner.

Electric wax burners have a surface that heats up the wax to release the scent. Although you won’t experience as strong a fragrance as you get if you use a candle-lit burner, an electric burner does have the benefit of melting the wax more slowly, which means that you get to enjoy the smell longer.

Enjoy the wax melt experience that only Sassy Shop Wax can give you. We offer the best wax melts on the market, with the widest range of fragrances that you’ll find anywhere in the UK or beyond. You can browse through our products page to see which scents will resonate with you the most.

You can find information on wax burners, electric wax melters and how to find the best wax melts in the UK. If you don’t see the answer you need, take a look at our online blog or contact our friendly customer care team - we are more than happy to help!

What shall I do if the wax melt doesn't smell anymore?

After a while, wax melts that you burn lose their fragrance - but the wax doesn’t disappear! When you heat the wax melts using a tealight wax melter or electric burner, the fragrance evaporates and once you can no longer smell it, the wax should be left to cool before you remove it. It's normal for this to happen, but we use the best ingredients to make ours the most long lasting!

How do I get wax out of a tealight burner?

We have found that lighting a tealight under the burner for about 10 seconds and blowing the tealight out is the most effective way of loosening the wax in the burner so that it slides out. The same method can be applied with an electric burner, just turn it on for a minute until the wax softens slightly and pop it out.

Are wax melts safe for pets?

All wax melts on the market are made differently by each manufacturer. Here at Sassy Wax we use a blend of soy to make our wax melts. Our wax base is non-toxic and is safe for all members of the family including children and pets. When made correctly, wax melts are the best way to enjoy strong fragrance around your home.

Can I use a wax melt in a oil burner?

We don’t recommend using oil burners for wax melts as often they are often short and have a small dish. Oil burners often have a height of less than 10cm which can cause them to overheat. This may then lead to cracks in the ceramic dish which can lead to safety concerns such as fires. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.

Can wax melts expire and go off?

Typically speaking, the longer you have our wax, the stronger it gets! There is a general consensus that the fragrance in wax melts has a shelf life of 12 months but we find our unique soy blend to last so much longer! Our wax melts are designed to give a strong scent to your home!

Are wax tarts eco friendly?

Typically speaking, wax melts use fragrance oil which is synthetic and should be considered when choosing the right brand. Here at Sassy Wax we use a safe blend of soy wax which is non-toxic. Our scents are blended with essential oils which makes us a great choice when you buy wax melts in the UK.

How can I make wax melts smell more?

There is a simple wax melt hack to make your melts more effective - which means a stronger smell that lasts longer! Once you have melted your wax for 15 minutes and can smell a strong fragrance in your room, you no longer need to melt the wax so you can blow out the tealight in your melter. Because the melter is already warm, it will continue to scent your home until it cools down. By using one of our wax burners, you can increase the effectiveness of your burn time even more! We are proud to sell strong wax melts that are long lasting in your home!

Should I see smoke coming from my wax burner?

When using a high quality wax melt, you can often see white smoke when it's burning. This is the fragrance oil evaporating and is harmless. If you see a dark colour smoke then blow out your wax immediately. If you are worried, check over your wax burner for cracks and never leave it unattended. Our wax melts are handmade in the UK and come in a huge variety of scents. When paired with our wax burners give the best scent experience for your home!

Will wax melts disappear like a scented candle?

Unlike a scented candle, wax melts do not evaporate or disapear. As the wax does not come into direct contact with the flame, the only thing which evaporates is the fragrance oil which is why you need to remove the wax from your burner when you can no longer smell the scent. As our products are great value and low cost compared to other alternatives, changing your wax melt scent is a cost effective solution to scenting your home.

What is a scent throw?

Scent throw is a term used to describe the fragrance being released. It can be used in relation to the fragrance strength and longevity as well as how far the fragrance travels. The best wax melts have a strong, long lasting scent which travels around the house. Our wax melts have great scent throw and make amazing gift sets so if you are looking for the best wax melts in the UK online, Sassy Wax is the right place!

What is the most popular wax melter?

There are many factors to consider when buying a wax melting pot. All burners use heat as a way to disperse the fragrance. In terms of convenience, electric burners are a great option as you do not have to worry about the flame. A major disadvantage when using plug in burners is that most are not time controlled but at Sassy Wax we solve this problem and you can find the best time controlled electric burners on the market!

Are scented candles different to wax melts?

Whilst wax tarts and scented candles both provide a solution to scenting your home, wax melts can be a more cost effective solution if you are looking for a strong and long lasting fragrance! Our products have a strong scent throw because we use innovative methods and the best quality ingredients. A candle depends on many different factors such as the quality of the wick and the dosage of fragrance. That is why wax melts are better as you can control the amount that you are using. If you’re looking for wholesale wax tarts, our segment pots or gift sets are the best choice for your scented needs!

Why are wax melts so popular?

Wax melt gift boxes provide a long-lasting, affordable fragrance for any home. They are significantly safer than scented candles, although obviously, caution must always be exercised around children and pets. They’re a convenient and more natural choice than an air freshener in an aerosol if you’d like to control the strength of scent while filling your home with luxurious fragrances.

How often should you change wax melts?

The simplest answer to this is when you can no longer smell the fragrance from the wax when the warmer is ‘on’. Clean out the old wax and add a new melt. Cheaper wax usually melts last between five and eight hours, while luxury and high-end ones can hold up to 20 hours of fragrance or more.

Are wax melts safer than candles?

Yes! A wax melt is the safer alternative to scented candles. Candles, especially cheap ones, can include materials like lead, phthalates, and formaldehyde which may not only leave black soot on your walls, but can also be harmful to health. Good wax melts are made from entirely natural materials, and a tealight flame is much less of a fire-risk besides.

Can you leave wax melts overnight?

Electric burners can be left on overnight, but naked flames, even tealights, should never be left unattended. In terms of fragrance, while wax melts in the UK are very reliable in making your home smell good for ten hours or more, leaving them on for long periods overnight may be pointless if you’re not awake to enjoy the scent.

What is the best way to store wax melts?

To keep your essential oil wax melts in the best condition and ready for use, store them in a dark, cool place. This extends their shelf life and enables you to enjoy the fragrance for longer. A few of the best places to store your wax melts are in a bathroom cabinet above the sink or inside a drawer.

Why are my wax melts not smelling?

One of the most common reasons why wax melts no longer smell is their age. If you’ve been using the same wax melts for an extended period of time, then they may have lost their fragrance. Replace with new melts. If unused wax melts don’t smell, it’s likely they’ve been stored wrongly or are very old.

How do you make wax melts smell stronger?

Here are some tips you can use to make your wax candle melts smell stronger:

  • Use two or more blocks, in multiple burners if necessary.
  • Add a fragrance oil suitable for the type of wax you’re using.
  • Make sure there are no other competing smells, such as incense, air fresheners or other candles.

Here’s How To Use A Wax Melt

Below is a step-by-step guide to properly melt a wax:

  • Set up your warmer first. If it’s an electric warmer, plug it in. If a manual one, light a tealight and insert it into the opening at the bottom. Wait for the burner to warm up before you place the wax in it.
  • Place the wax in the top of your wax warmer. Typically, there’s a small bowl or bowl-shape on top of the wax warmer. Add just one piece of wax to the indentation to prevent it from overflowing.
  • Let the wax melt. Wax melt bars will melt on their own, so leave for a short while, then check whether the fragrance is reaching the entire space. If it isn’t, it may be a sign that you need a new wax melt.

Several Reasons Why Wax Melts Are Better Than Candles

A wax melt gift set will go down with the recipient far better than scented candles these days, and no wonder when you consider the following:

  • Wax melts are flame-free. Candles need a flame for them to smell, which makes them riskier. But with wax melts and an electric burner, you don’t need flames. This means they can be a much safer option.
  • Wax melts have more burn. Wax melts last longer in terms of burning time than candles. The latter will lose their smell within around seven to nine hours of being lit, but the best wax melts can hold up to 84 hours of fragrance.
  • Wax melts are cheaper. Compared to candles, wax melts are far more affordable yet smell good for longer. This makes them especially good for anyone on a tight budget but still wanting a luxurious fragrance around their house.
  • Wax melts are versatile. There are a considerable number of fragrances available, far more than you’ll find in candles nowadays.

Wax Melts: What Makes Soy Wax Melts Perfect For Your Home

Wax fragrance melts are very popular for homeowners right now, and none more so than those made of soy wax. Created by using soybean oils, these melts have a lower melting point than other waxes and give off a fresher, cleaner odour because they contain no paraffin.

With soy wax melts, it’s vital to store them in a cool, dry place if you want the scent to last. Once your soy wax melt stops smelling, you can either add a couple of drops of an essential oil to boost the fragrance or shop for new ones.

Why You Should Use Wax Melts In Your Home

It’s true that, for many people wanting to add fragrance to their home, candles can look more appealing and striking. However, aesthetically pleasing wax burners are also increasingly found on the market, and the benefits that wax cubes offer by far outweigh the appealing look of candles.

As well as being more affordable and safer if appropriately used, wax melts are also eco-friendly. This means that you get to enjoy luxurious scents without damaging the environment. And that alone makes them preferable to candles or aerosols of air freshener.
