June’s Tropic Like It’s Hot box was definitely another winner for us, we especially loved the fabulous pink and green palm tree packaging, made us want to run away on holiday somewhere palm tree-ey.
So what scents were in it?
Sarah – Such an unusual scent. I got a little melon coming through and it seemed more aquatic than a ‘tree’ based scent. It was unusual but interesting, just not sure the scent matches the name.
Sam – My nose has been a bit off this past couple of weeks, I think it’s from the heat, I HATE the heat, but anyway I just didn’t know what to make of this scent when I first smelled it, I was so confused. I took my time melting it to try and figure out the scent notes. It’s very unique, like Sarah, I think I can get some melon, it does have a tropical vibe to it but I wouldn’t say it was an earthy, tree type scent although I’ve never smelled a palm tree before so I could be confused.
It’s a nice scent, don’t get me wrong, just a very confusing one.
Raspberry Ripple Ice-Cream
Sam – Raspberry Ripple Ice-Cream is definitely my favourite scent in the box, it reminds me of getting 99s as a child which extra sugary sweet raspberry sauce on them, who are we kidding here, I still get them, even more so with this hot weather. Smells just like creamy, rich vanilla ice cream mixed with extra ripe, juicy raspberries. Om nom nom.
Sarah – Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream always reminds me of Blackpool beach and my Granny. It’s been one of my favourite ice cream flavours ever since and this scent totally sent me back to my early years with those precious memories. Also I absolutely LOVE how creamy this smells. Yum!
Cola Ice Pops
Sarah – I’ve been slurping cola ice pops the last few weeks, like they were the only things left. I’m a big fan of them and this scent really brought the smells of my youth and of course present day too. It reminds me of the cola float drinks (cola + ice cream in a glass) and definitely needing all the ice cream to cool down in the heat.
Sam – I really loved the Cola Jellies wax melts that Flamingo Candles had out last year, I stocked up on them when they were in the sale, so I was super happy to see Cola Ice Pops in the box. It’s quite similar to Cola Jellies, but is extra cola-y and less fizzy. It’s so sweet and makes me want everything cola flavoured.
Sam – Lemon Sorbet is so zingy and refreshing, it’s one of the most intense lemon aromas I’ve ever smelled. It’s like the sorbet was made with the tartest lemons, juice, zest and all. This scent will most definitely perk you up!
Sarah – Ahhh lemon. What a gorgeously vibrant and straight up your nose scent. There’s no messing about with this one, it packs a big lemon punch and it’s one of my favourites for sure.
Gin & Tonic
Sarah – I’ve become a fan of G&T’s this summer and I’ve always loved this as a scent. It’s a fab uplifting scent that you can easily have all year round but there is something so perfect about it melting in the summer.
Sam – I don’t drink gin, but I do love the smell of this Gin & Tonic scent melt. I couldn’t even tell if this smells like a gin and tonic, but to me it smells really strong, zesty and kind of earthy.
Sam – They say having sweet smells surrounding you can help curb cravings for sweet things, so not true! This makes me want everything strawberry flavoured, the sweeter the better. It’s super sugary sweet, just made for me.
Sarah – Another thing I love is cola laces but if they don’t have cola ones then I’ll get the strawberry ones. These smell like strawberry laces! Basically this box made me want sweets A LOT.
Pineapple & Lime
Sarah – The lime really comes through this one but every now and then the pineapple wafts through it. I really liked this one and sometimes it even seemed like a sour scent which was quite fun!
Sam – Pineapple and lime are two of my most favoruite scents ever but I haven’t really thought of ever mixing them together, I feel like I’ve really missed out. This scent smells like a big ol pineapple cocktail with a good squeeze of lime juice in it. It’s a perfect scent for summer.
Sam – I wasn’t a fan of the White Musk scent in the Flamingo Candles 90s inspired WILD Collection but for some reason I really like this one! I think perhaps this is an updated version, I’ll have to ask them, but it is just fabulous! It’s a really sweet and feminine scent and very unique.
Sarah – Never really been a great fan of this one but it did smell a little different this time, not sure if it’s a recipe change or all the fruity scents in the box tainting the scent a little. Was lovely to use it when it was mega hot and come in from the garden to smell it.
