Flamingo Candles: August 'The Melt Crowd' Review




So here comes another review of the fabulous Flamingo Candles monthly subscription box. If you haven't already, then have a read of last months review by clicking here.

As with last month (and the month before!), I walked through my front door and could smell that the parcel had arrived. I have to say that I was even more impressed this month too, as it included a little treat for anyone that has been subscribed from the start, marking the third month of 'The Melt Crowd'.

Included in the parcel are the following scent melts:
  • Green Apples
  • Fresh Cotton (exclusive)
  • Kir Royale Cocktail
  • Ginger & Lime
  • Strawberries & Champagne
  • Pomegranate Cider
  • Dahlia
  • CIRCUS Donuts (new)
My favourites would have to be Donuts, Strawberries & Champagne and Pomegranate Cider. I have to say that I do love them all, although my least favourite is the Ginger & Lime, simply because I'm generally not a big fan of ginger or lime - I find that the scent melts that have contained lime can be quite overpowering and get down the back of my throat. But apart from that, I've loved every one of them.

Along with the 8 scent melts, the additional gift includes 8 scent eggs which smell absolutely amazing too. It includes 2 cherry, 2 orange, 2 lime and 2 peach. The idea with these is that you mix a few together to create your own scent, with this mix creating a 'summer fruit bowl'. The packaging even says 'Happy Third Month' which is a really nice gesture too!

I'm getting pretty stacked up with scent melts now but I really can't make myself stop this subscription as I get so excited each month! I'm thinking that I may give some away as gifts in the future if they pile up too much though, as they would make a great gift. I am using my 20% discount to buy a few glass jar candles though, so I'll let you know which ones I choose!
