Florals are a must for channeling the season of Spring. Greenery is also a great scent note to look out for when buying wax melts for Spring. Airy scents which will give a clean and fresh vibe such as laundry type fragrances are ideal for that crisp Spring vibe.

Aquatic and fruity scents work perfectly for Summer. Strawberries, Pineapple, Lemon, Lime are front runners on the fruit front. If you prefer a more playful Summer feel then choose thematic sweet scents such as 'Blue Raspberry Slushie' or 'Seaside Breeze'

Winter gives you two roads. Crisp and fresh or cozy and warm. For the more crisp option then look out for notes of pine, aldehydes, mint and woodsy notes too. For a more warming feel then choose scents which boast spice, clove, sweet orange and cinnamon.

Falling in the Autumn, Halloween is your chance to use some thematic wax melts to really shine spotlight on the spooky season. Leaf & Lake Co makes Halloween specific melts which can venture out of the traditional 'pumpkin spice' of Autumn, which can be refreshing. Sweet berries and powdery musks slot well into Halloween.
