Flamingo Candles: July 'The Melt Crowd' review

As I mentioned in a recent post, I'm now subscribed to The Melt Crowd by Flamingo Candles, which is a monthly subscription that arrives through your letterbox at the beginning of each month and contains 8 wax melts (along with a free wax burner if it is your first box). The cost for this is £10 including delivery, and the contents of the box plus delivery have a retail value of £18.95, therefore it's definitely worth the money if you love candles and burning scents around the home.

I have to say that I was extremely impressed with my both my June and July boxes. As soon as I walked through my front door I could smell the boxes! The individual fragrances are always a surprise, including a mix of old favourites, current scents as well as scents that are exclusive to The Melt Crowd. As you can see in the images, the July parcel contained the following: Raspberry & Salted Caramel, Cucumber & Melon, Mojito, Green Tomato Leaf (exclusive), Lemon Curd, Oriental Lotus & Rose Otto, Pink Lemonade and Island Breeze (exclusive). I've already started burning the Raspberry & Salted Caramel and it smells amazing!

Incase you're unaware of how to use these products, you simply place one in a wax burner along with a tealight underneath, and simply watch it melt. These melts last approximately 30 hours - I find that it's better to break them in half to make the most of them, as I like to swap around with them.

I would definitely recommend this subscription, and I'm already looking forward to my next box arriving! I'm particularly looking forward to the seasonal boxes too, especially at Christmas time.
