In case you don’t know, The Melt Crowd is 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.
Because we’re basically Flamingo Candles stalkers we had seen the June Melt Crowd box on Instagram before ours had arrived and we both just said “BEST BOX EVER!” We couldn’t wait then to get our hands on the fabulous scent melts.
So what scents were in the June box?
WILD Strawberry Millions – These bad boys were part of our staple diet in the 90s! A sickly sweet and moreish scent, Strawberry Millions is a blend of green strawberries and sherbet with a hint of vanilla.
Sam: I can’t really remember the taste of Strawberry Millions but oh wow this scent smells so yummy. They had me at “sickly sweet” that’s just how I love my wax goodies. If you like your sweet, foody and fruity scents then you’ll go nuts for Strawberry Millions!
Sarah: The day that my Melt Crowd came I was actually in Blackpool doing all the seaside fun! I’d got myself an ice cream and I’d selected strawberry millions as my topping. So when I came home and saw everything, this one made me smile. Twice in a day I’d had a little taste/smell of nostalgia. A very full strawberry scent, it’s very creamy too. It’ll make you want the biggest bowl of strawbs and lashings of cream!
Piña Colada – Sweet and tropical, Piña Colada is a pineapple fragrance with orange top notes alongside a touch of red fruits, peach and grapefruit and a smooth coconut and vanilla base.
Sarah: We may have mentioned that we enjoy the odd cocktail or seven… this is a favourite of ours anyway and great to see it in this box too. It’ll make you think of summer and quite possibly frozen cocktails.
Sam: This is one of the many scents that I’ve always bought from Flamingo Candles and will continue to do so. Imagine the ultimate, the most luxurious and decadent Piña Colada and that’s exactly what this smells like.
Oh that reminds me, I need to stock up on frozen cocktails. 😛
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* Beach Please
Sam: First things first, I freakin LOVE the name “Beach Please” it makes me LOL.
I love the idea of beachy type scents but most of the time they’re way too artificial. When I wanna be reminded of the beach I like scents to be fresh and soothing; that’s exactly what this scent is.
I personally think it has a masculine element to it too, which makes me think of like a hot surfer guy…like Matthew McConaughey. Perhaps this is what he smells like… 😛
Sarah: O-M-Geeeee I love this scent. Obsessed with this scent. I need this in a candle. It makes me think of that breeze along the beach and total relaxation. Bliss!
Cheesecake Crunch – Sweet and tempting Cheesecake Crunch is a luscious medley of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, maple, walnut, citrus and caramel. Experience the authentic, true-to-life fragrance, with pure natural spice extracts.
Sarah: Another favourite. Even more so because it can be mixed with the Lemon Curd too. Reminded me that I have a candle of this that I’ve not started yet. Happy days!
Sam: This was one of the first ever scents that I bought from Flamingo Candles, purely because my better half LOVES cheesecake, so I thought of him when I first saw it and bought lots of it. It’s one of the few scents that he comments on, and y’all know when a man comments on home fragrance that it is a good sign.
I love the spicy, nutty elements in this scent. It’s rich and delicious and not overly sweet which would be a bad thing in this case, I just love it. Can’t recommend it enough.
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* Chili & Coriander
Sam: When I saw this scent on Instagram I was a bit like “hmmmm…I dunno…” but actually I really like it. It was the first scent I melted out of the box, it’s kinda herby, zesty, a little bit spicy, a little bit masculine, it’s one of the most unique scents I’ve ever had. I think I’d like it in a candle form, it’d really perk you up.
Sarah: Sooooo intriguing. It smells herby but spicy, it’s probably not going to be one that I’ll obsess over in the long term. But right now? I keep sniffing it. Ha!
*The Melt Crowd Exclusive* Peach
Sarah: I have to confess that I was excited to see this scent in the box for Sam. Don’t get me wrong, I love it but she’s been looking for exactly this type of peach scent for ages. It’s really beautiful and great now that the weather has got warmer too. Smells so fresh!
Sam: Ever since the weather has gotten warmer, I’ve been craving a really strong, no muss, no fuss, true-to-life, straight-up, deliciously ripe peach scent and this is that, and so much more! I just love it.
*World Gin Day June 11th* – Gin & Tonic
Sam: Happy World Gin Day! This day is probably lost on me, as 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 and zesty. Packs quite a punch!
Sarah: I really think this might be my favourite of the box. It’s such an uplifting, bright and full scent. This would be great in a candle, I can think of so many who would enjoy this as a gift.
Lemon Curd – Sweet and zesty, Lemon Curd is a mouthwatering lemon fragrance with top notes of fizzy lemon, sweetened by vanilla pods and sugar.
Sarah: Anything lemon is always a hit with us. ALWAYS! This is such a buttery lemon scent, it makes me want to bake. This would be great mixed with the cheesecake crunch scent.
Sam: I LOVE lemon scents and this one is just so freakin delectable. You can smell the creamy, buttery elements, it’s just insanely good. I’ll definitely be stocking up on this in candle form as well as getting more scent melts.
If you love these scents or had your eye on any of the previous Melt Crowd scent exclusives, you’re in luck…Flamingo Candles have them online at the moment and they’re a bargain at only £1 each! Within minutes of getting the email about the sale, I bought 20 melts! SO ADDICTED!
