The September Melt Box - Flamingo Candles '17


One thing which I am always looking forward to when a new month started is that there is going to be a new melt box arriving as you know I am someone who loves burning candles and tarts. With this weather which is coming colder, I can see myself burning some of these fast. Today I am going to share with you September's edition I know this is super early for me to put one of these up but I have some amazing content which is going to be coming up in the next few weeks.

If you are unsure what the melt box is it is a monthly subscription box from flamingo candles each box has 8 wax tart melts. They are a combination of old favorites, current scents and some which are still yet to be launched as well as some exclusives to the melt crowd. As a member, you receive a wax burner with your first box which allows you to burn the wax as well as a 20% discount code with every box which is useful for us candle addicts.



Bubblegum is not one which I would have selected should I have gone into a shop which sells the wax tarts because of the fact that I am not a huge fan of sweet scents. This does actually remind me of the scent of the cheap chewing gum which I used to get when I was younger. This does mean that I am going to be more likely to actually burn this at some stage in the future maybe before Christmas. If you love sweet scents this for sure one is which you will love more than me. I do love that this month because the theme is Grl Powr it comes with really cute little saying to make yourself feel better about yourself. I do love thinking I am magical and this is something which I think a lot of people are going to love. 



Black Raspberry and Vanilla which is one which for sure is one of my favourites the reason behind this is because I like vanilla however for me it has to be mixed with something otherwise I find it a little bit too bland and boring. The black raspberry in this tart gives me something which actually which is not too fruity it gives it an element which I love that I can not describe but it is almost like a spicy edge, however, it can not be but this is what makes me actually love this. This for sure is going to be one which I am going to be burning very soon because we all know that I cannot wait once I have my tarts.  I also feel like I have a life at the moment and that is very rare for me because I do not usually have my shit together.



Cherry is a scent which I love as long as it does not smell too artificial which is a problem which I have found with a lot of cherry scented candle products which I have had in the past and usually I tend to go for more black cherry scents. I do not know if flamingo have managed to crack the cherry scent or if it is the amaretto which makes me adore this scent but for sure it does make me think that I am going to have to burn it very soon because it is amazing and one of my favourites in the collection which we received this month. Which technically is a sweet one which is surprising because as I am sure you are aware I prefer fruity and fresh to sweet scents. 


The next scent which I got in the box is the lime and black pepper which is not one which I think I would have thought as a candle scent instead it is something which reminds me of the crisps which I think it is walkers who do. This scents one which is very clean with a hint of something which means that it is not too fresh this must be the black pepper element. This for sure is not one which I would have picked up if I had not been sent it, however, it one which I am actually liking andthis I am going to end up burning this in the next couple of months while the weather comes cooler.


This one I am not going to lie to you is one which for sure I was unsure about because of the fact that I know I love the smell of new books there is nothing more I love than actually sitting down and reading a new book, however, old books just makes me think of a library and the smell of that. This scent is one which I kind of am not going to be able to do justice because I can not put my finger on what it actually smells of. This is one which I am going to say is not unpleasant at all it is far from it but it is not one of my favouites from this box. I do not want to put the candles down though because it is really nice.  


Lilac to me is actually a colour not a scent so when I received this one I did not know what to actually think about the scent.I still am unsure what I think this smell like I think it is very floralish. I don't think I actually like the scent too much because of the fact I do not know what it does actually smell of an I think I actually like to know what a scent is before I burn it because there is nothing worse than burning a candle which you do not actually like in the end. This is going to be one which I am not going to be burning for a while. 


I love thunderstorms which are in the weather they are amazing I do not know what this scent smells of as well because of the fact that I do not think that thunderstorms actually have a scent, however, every single time I smell this scent I can actually smell something different every single time I actually dry sniff this. I am unsure what I am decided if I adore this scent it could be because of the fact that every time I smell it I get a different vibe. I am sure if actually burn this candles I will find out if I do love this because I should get its true scent. This for sure is going to be one which I do not burn for a while because there are ones which I love more. 

This box is not one of my favourites I think that I have had months which have been of more appeal to me however, I know this is personal preference. I am looking forward to the next box because October I think could be an amazing box because after all it is going to be Halloween and techincally Autumn. 

Have you tried out this box if so what is your thoughts?
