We’re huge Flamingo Candles fans have been reviewing their Melt Crowd boxes since the beginning of the year, which has really fed our crazy wax addiction because they constantly bring out lots of fabulous and delicious scents.
If you haven’t heard about The Melt Crowd (what rock have you been living under?!) it’s a monthly wax subscription box from Flamingo Candles. Each box contains eight delicious Scent Melts.
The individual fragrances are a surprise – they include a combination of old favourites, current scents, new yet-to-be launched scents and scents exclusive to The Melt Crowd. Plus to make it even better, your first box as a member of The Melt Crowd will include a wax burner, to ensure you’re fully ready to explore Flamingo Candles’ amazing scents. You’ll also get a 20% discount code too with every box, which you’ll use and then become addicts like us. 😛
We thought as it’s the end of the year, that it’d be fun to talk about our favourites scents that we’ve received, like what would our ultimate Melt Crowd boxes would include…
Sam’s Ultimate Flamingo Candles Melt Crowd Box
Independence Day (this was in the July Melt Crowd) – I’m just obsessed with this scent, it’s like jelly beans, it really is, it’s sweet and tart, fruity and citrussy and just all kinds of yum. You can smell it strongly even when it’s not melting.
Sweet Peanuts (this was in the April Melt Crowd) – I dunno if you’ve ever had a PayDay before, it’s a candy bar made up of salted peanuts rolled in caramel with a gooey nougaty centre, like heaven in a wrapper. Well, anyway, this is that but in scented wax form. It’s sweet and salty and just yum!
Cola Jellies (this was in the May Melt Crowd) – Jellies are my life, especially cola jellies and this smells exactly like them only more intense and so very very fizzy. I think I may have to start a petition to get Flamingo Candles to make candles in this scent and have them and melts available FOREVER!
Welsh Cakes (this was in the August Melt Crowd) – I think this may be the most perfect Autumn/Winter scent ever. It’s decadent and so spicy, you can really smell like cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg, but it has that vanilla cake like element too. It’s so warm and comforting.
Seville Orange (this was in the September Melt Crowd)- Oh this scent is insane! I could smell it through the box! I just love it, it’s so bright and citrussy. You can get the tartness of the orange peel and then the sweetness of the fresh, juicy pulp. I wanna eat it! This is one of the best orange scents I’ve ever smelled.
Candy Floss & Pear Drops (this was in the October Melt Crowd)- Literally one of the GREATEST SCENTS EVER! It smells exactly like it sounds, straight up juicy pear drops and sugary, sweet candy floss. Just so yummy and such a happy scent! 😀
Salted Caramel & Pistachio (this was in the July Melt Crowd) – I’m a big salted caramel fan and I freakin love nutty aromas and pitashio in particular is such a unique one, so having the two combined is just amazing! This is such a delectable scent and to me really shows what creative geniuses and master scent mixologists Flamingo Candles are.
Sweet Tobacco (this was in the October Melt Crowd) – This scent is crazy good! It’s ever so sexy and masculine, but it’s sweet too and has lots of elements to it. We’ve seen some negative feedback in regards to this scent but I think it’s just stunning. If you love mandle type fragrances this is one that you’ll LOVE, it’s in a league of it’s own.
Sarah’s Ultimate Flamingo Candles Melt Crowd Box
Beach Please (this was in the June Melt Crowd) – O-M-Geeeee I love this scent. It makes me think of that breeze along the beach and total relaxation. Bliss!
Candy Floss & Pear (this was in the October Melt Crowd) – Well… I absolutely LOVE this. I feel like shouting this to the world. But maybe just on the blog otherwise people might think I’m crazy. It’s ever so sweet, ever so fun and I need more of it.
But First Coffee (this was in the September Melt Crowd) – Oh hello! This was my favourite of the September box. It’s a little coffee but it also smells more like amber and wood, there’s a very masculine side to this. LOVE IT.
Sweet Peanuts (this was in the April Melt Crowd) – I really, really, REALLY hope this one comes back because I love it so much. Think of peanut butter but real buttery peanuts and then bake them a bit… there you go! Amazing.
Easter Egg (this was in the March Melt Crowd) – This is the ultimate Easter scent, it smells like candy and chocolate and all things sweet and yummy.
I think when it comes to chocolate type fragrances you can either get them really right or reeeeally wrong and Flamingo Candles knocked it out of the park with this scent. It’s not overpowering, it’s simply delicious.
Kir Royale (this was in the February Melt Crowd) – Sweet and spritzy and smells a little boozy, which I like!
Black Raspberry & Vanilla (this was in the November Melt Crowd) – Vanilla scents really hit me right in the happiness side of life. Raspberries are one of my favourite foods so the mix of the two is AH-MA-ZING! There is something decadent about this though, feels rich with scent. Definitely a scent for stressful days!
Sherry Trifle (this was in the December Melt Crowd) – As soon as you smell this, your nose is smacked by red fruits. I knew this would be a favourite of mine for sure. Once it’s warming the sherry comes through and it really starts to fill the room with it’s fruity scent. I know not everyone is keen on the cocktail scents, so I want to add that whilst the sherry can be smelt it doesn’t overpower the fruits. The sherry just brings out the scent more. You can get the vanilla sweetness of the creamy custard and sponge too.
We look forward to whatever Flamingo Candles are bringing out in 2017 cause we just know everything will be amazing. You can read our previous Flamingo Candles reviews HERE and be sure to show them some love on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and on Instagram.
