We were super lucky to each receive another Melt Crowd box from our friends at Flamingo Candles, seriously we’re so lucky to work with them because we are OBSESSED!
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. 😛
So what scents were in the March box?
*The Melt Crowd Preview* B.A.R.E. Ylang Ylang & Bergamot Essential Oils – The combination of ylang ylang and bergamot is intoxicatingly lovely and ever so calming. Bergamot has the fresh, sweet, citrus scent and ylang ylang has a rich and romantic floral scent; the two combined make for a very uplifting and relaxing aroma that’s a little bit sensual too.
Bunny Kisses – This scent is described as… “Fluffy and creamy or sharp and tangy… the fragrance combines notes of juicy rhubarb and creamy caramel vanilla custard.”
This is one of my favourite scents this year! It’s similar to rhubarb and custard sweets only fancier and more grown up, maybe more like a luxurious rhubarb crumble with rich vanilla custard. *Drools.*
I really hope Flamingo Candles make this an all year round scent because even though I stocked up on it, I’m so panicking about what will happen when I run out! 😯
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* Easter Egg – 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.
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* French Lime Blossom – I love citrus scents in general and this definitely had the lime element to it, I found it had powdery and herbal notes too, it’s very bright and feminine.
Mango & Dragonfruit – This scent is described as… “Exotic and punchy, Mango & Dragonfruit combines base notes of lily, rose and jasmine with fruity green leaf, peach schnapps, sweet orange, melon, mango and apple.”
This scent is so delightful, fresh and sweet. I can’t really detect any of the floral notes, but trust me that ain’t a problem because the peach and mango really pop with this fragrance on a cold smell and the orange comes through more when it’s melting.
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* Spearmint – I found Spearmint to be quite a mild minty fragrance as if it was toned down with some vanilla. This fresh aroma was really calming and very mood boosting. This would be a great scent to have melting when you’re working.
*The Melt Crowd Preview* Spring Break – I of course was attracted to the pretty pink paper on this particular scent melt but actually I don’t quite know what to make of Spring Break as a fragrance. It’s quite floral, which I’m not a big fan of of but I can detect some musky tones in it too, which I do like. I have yet to melt this particular one but I’m hoping for some fresh or creamy elements to come through when it is melting.
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* Very Vanilla – Myself and Sarah have both mentioned a few times about becoming bored with plain vanilla scents and I think this is because they can be quite fake smelling and sometimes a bit too sweet. I think this particular scent smelled like rich, pure vanilla extract. It wasn’t too sweet, it’s just creamy and luxurious.
