Flamingo Candles - July Box 2017


July's box came with a theme of Pool Party which really suits the month because we have been having such a heat wave in the UK. I think everyone has been wanting to have them if they haven't been there anything better than cool water in this heat. I have to say how amazing the packaging is in this box as well because we have unicorns. watermelons and doughnuts which all seem to be on trend at the moment and they are all in emjoi's.


This month has a really cool selection of melts so without further ado I will share with you the scents. The first one which I unboxed was pomegranate cider which makes me think of sipping the fruit ciders in either a beer garden or at the minute more likely the back garden. This smells really autumnal almost to me because of the fact that I associate the pomegranate with that time of year more than I think of it in the summer. This is actually one which I really do like and can see myself burning very soon even though I have a hell of a lot of melts to burn.


Watermelon is not a strong scent so to me I actually have no association with a scent for this candle which is shocking, however, instead of it smelling fruity like you might think that it should because it is a fruity scent to me it smells a hell of a lot more clean and fresh which if you have read my candle posts in the past you know I love this kind of scents. This for sure is going to be one which I am actually going to be burning in when the weather cools down a little bit because at the moment I am finding it slightly too hot to be burning.


Mango and Dragonfruit wax tart is heaven to me because as someone who absolutely adores the scent of Mango as long as it is not made to smell like it is too artificial. Flamingo candles have made it so that this scent is not too artificial so this is one which I love so much because it smells like real mangos do as bad as it sounds it smelt that fresh that I almost wanted to eat the candle. Don't worry I resisted the urge because I know it would not do me any good. This for sure is going to be another one which is burnt very soon because it has to be nearly one of my favourites from this box.


Beach Balls to me should smell of rubbery plastic or is that just me who has the smell of that when they think of beach balls. This tart to me doesn't have the scent of this because this would not be something which would be very pleasurable to burn, however, for me this is not a tart which has a lot of scents. The small scent which I can smell does not remind me of anything this for sure is going to be one which is added to the collection but not burnt for a long time.


Lemon curd is the next one which I picked out of the box and this is one which I love even though I am a huge fan of sweet scents this one to me is not actually too sweet at all which makes a change because I know so many of these can be. To me, it smells more like Lemon which you would find in cleaning products rather than a sweet one which is not something which you would expect from a product which is meant to be lemon curd scented.  This for one is going to be one which I am burning very soon. 


Pineapple and Raspberry are not too fruits which you would think about putting together when it comes to the summer months however, they are both summer fruits which I adore. I am unsure which scent I get the most of when I dry sniff this I think it is actually the blend is amazing. I think that it is something which should they do the scent in a medium candle or something like this I would repurchase because of the fact that I really like it so I might have to go on the hunt for this.


The next one which I picked out of the box was this lovely sweet lime and cedar scent which really is one which I enjoy this is because of the fact that I love the citrus scents which we are the notes which I get when I give this a dry sniff. I am unsure what the cedar is meant to be to be so this could be another reason why I am more attracted to the sweet lime element.  This is another one which I would love to purchase should it be able to get in in another form rather than a wax tart as I have a lot of them to get through. For sure this is one I will be burning in the next few months though.


The final item which was in this box was the Thai Lime and Mango scent which is surprising as we have already had a lime fragrance in this box. I love mango the scent as long as it is not too artificial which this is not it smells like the actual fruit which is alway a winner in my book. I do actually get a mix of both of these scents which is one that is nice because it is very fruity which is amazing because it is a scent that I adore. I think I might claim that this is my favourite in the whole box because it is that amazing and when I have space in my tart burners. 

What if your favourite scent out of this months box? Do you have any recommendations of companies that I should try?
