Flamingo Candle- January Scent Melt Box


One of the most popular posts on my blog was when I shared my views on my uly Scent box from the amazing Flamingo candles. I meant to share with you my thoughts on the December one however, it arrived I got super busy with the festive period and never actually got them up. I aim to share my views on these most months because they are something I love being a candle addict. If you haven't heard of it before it's a subscription box which every month sends you 8 wax tarts and your first month you get a free tart burner. The subscription is £10 a month with free p&p.  The January box was all about Be Happy as January can be one of the most depressing and long months of the year.





The first scent which I pulled out of the box was Blueberry cheesecake which to me is a very fruity smell which also has a food element. Blueberry to me is a fruity which does not have a lot of scent but it is one which I don't mind as the food element comes through this is one I could see myself burning and actually making myself hungry. This would be one which if you wanted your house to smell of fresh baking but do not have the time to do this. This is one which I will be burning in this spring when the weather is changing. 


Clean cotton is one which I really adore it reminds me of one from Yankee candle which I think is called either fluffy towels or baby powder I can not remember which one it is. This smells so clean like the fresh air outdoors this is one I think I would love to burn when it is cold and I am missing the warmer air when it allows you to go for a walk this one is one which will soon be burning. I might even have to have a look and see if they do it in a candle because this for sure is one which I would love to own. 


Coconut and Raspberry scent melt is the one which I really like I get a huge amount of coconut however I can not smell raspberry this may be due to the fact that raspberry is a very subtle fruit and is overpowered by the coconut. This is one which I think is more summery which makes me happy because summer is an amazing time of year because you can get out and do way more, This summer may not be but more on that at a later date.  This for sure is one which will not be in my collection for very long before it is in my burner. 


I will be honest with you here I do not actually know what Dewberry smells of however, the candle to me smells super berry like which is one of my favourite kind of scents. This is one which I am unsure what I think it smells of too much without saying that it is nice which is the worst kind of decription and I know this. I might have to review this one in the future when I burn it so that I can give a better review. 


Jasmine and Lime is not combination which I think of when I think of combinations which include Lime usually it is something else which is fruity however, this is a combination which actually works and goes together.  I get the floral element from the Jasmine however I do get a hint of lime which makes me like it more due to the fact I am not a huge floral fan this is something which I can deal with though it is not too floral for me. 


This orange and blackcurrant really is super citrus which is from the orange element as you may know citrus is one of my favourite things in the world when it comes to shower gel and candles as long as it does not smell like cleaning products.  Blackcurrant is very subtle when it comes to this melt but this is not something which I have minded. I really do like this product and again it is one which I can see myself burning pretty soon. 


Pomegrante Cider is one of those again which I can not work out what it actually smells like however it is one which I must say that I do actually like which makes a change because sometimes I can not work out if I love them if I do not know what they smell like. 


The final item which I have in this box is the unicorn dreams this is one which for no doubt I would be purchasing however you can not get this in candle form. This to me smells of Lush it think I pinpointed down to been the comforter which is one of my favourite scents. This is the first one which is going to go in my burner when I have some room as they currently have tarts in them. 


Overall I don't think this box has been one of my favorites recently I can not wait to see what they do in the February's box for some reason I can see it been a valentine's day theme.

If you get this box what has been your favourite scent this month or which one would you like to try. if you do not?

  2. I should really look into getting a subscription like this because I am absolutely obsessed with candles and it's good you get the free burner in your first box!
