Flamingo Candle- January Scent Melt Box

One of the most popular posts on my blog was when I shared my views on my uly Scent box from the amazing Flamingo candles. I meant to share with you my thoughts on the December one however, it arrived I got super busy with the festive period and never actually got them up. I aim to share my views on these most months because they are something I love being a candle addict. If you haven’t heard of it before it’s a subscription box which every month sends you 8 wax tarts and your first month you get a free tart burner. The subscription is £10 a month with free p&p.  The January box was all about Be Happy as January can be one of the most depressing and long months of the year.

The first scent which I pulled out of the box was Blueberry cheesecake which to me is a very fruity smell which also has a food element. Blueberry to me is a fruity which does not have a lot of scent but it is one which I don’t mind as the food element comes through this is one I could see myself burning and actually making myself hungry. This would be one which if you wanted your house to smell of fresh baking but do not have the time to do this. This is one which I will be burning in this spring when the weather is changing. 
Clean cotton is one which I really adore it reminds me of one from Yankee candle which I think is called either fluffy towels or baby powder I can not remember which one it is. This smells so clean like the fresh air outdoors this is one I think I would love to burn when it is cold and I am missing the warmer air when it allows you to go for a walk this one is one which will soon be burning. I might even have to have a look and see if they do it in a candle because this for sure is one which I would love to own. 
Coconut and Raspberry scent melt is the one which I really like I get a huge amount of coconut however I can not smell raspberry this may be due to the fact that raspberry is a very subtle fruit and is overpowered by the coconut. This is one which I think is more summery which makes me happy because summer is an amazing time of year because you can get out and do way more, This summer may not be but more on that at a later date.  This for sure is one which will not be in my collection for very long before it is in my burner. 
I will be honest with you here I do not actually know what Dewberry smells of however, the candle to me smells super berry like which is one of my favourite kind of scents. This is one which I am unsure what I think it smells of too much without saying that it is nice which is the worst kind of decription and I know this. I might have to review this one in the future when I burn it so that I can give a better review. 
Jasmine and Lime is not combination which I think of when I think of combinations which include Lime usually it is something else which is fruity however, this is a combination which actually works and goes together.  I get the floral element from the Jasmine however I do get a hint of lime which makes me like it more due to the fact I am not a huge floral fan this is something which I can deal with though it is not too floral for me. 
This orange and blackcurrant really is super citrus which is from the orange element as you may know citrus is one of my favourite things in the world when it comes to shower gel and candles as long as it does not smell like cleaning products.  Blackcurrant is very subtle when it comes to this melt but this is not something which I have minded. I really do like this product and again it is one which I can see myself burning pretty soon. 
Pomegrante Cider is one of those again which I can not work out what it actually smells like however it is one which I must say that I do actually like which makes a change because sometimes I can not work out if I love them if I do not know what they smell like. 
The final item which I have in this box is the unicorn dreams this is one which for no doubt I would be purchasing however you can not get this in candle form. This to me smells of Lush it think I pinpointed down to been the comforter which is one of my favourite scents. This is the first one which is going to go in my burner when I have some room as they currently have tarts in them. 

Overall I don’t think this box has been one of my favorites recently I can not wait to see what they do in the February’s box for some reason I can see it been a valentine’s day theme.
If you get this box what has been your favourite scent this month or which one would you like to try. if you do not?

Favourite Winter Candles

Hi Guys

I have decided to share today my favourite candles for the Winter they are not all just Christmassy ones due to the go the fact that I know that I will be burning these way into January and I feel like this is not something you can do if they are all Christmas scents.

The first one which I am sharing with you is the B&M Winter Mist which cost only £2.99. This is one of the dupes for bath and body works, however, I have never tried them. The reason that it is one of my favourite is due to the fact that it smells so clean it reminds me of them crisp winter mornings without it been so cold which is always a bonus. I feel like this is one which you could burn at any time of the year because it is so clean and fresh. I may have to have another trip to B&M to see if I can get any more of these because they are super cheap as well.

The second one is also from B&M and another dupe which cost £2.99 this is frosted cranberry which reminds me of a berry smoothie for some reason, however, you rarely see cranberries in one of these. Cranberries are meant to be festive so this is the reason I have included it in this again this is one which could be burnt at any time of the year it smells clean and fruity for me. This is one again which I may go on the hunt for to stock up on as they are so cheap  and I know that I may not be able to get my hands on them for very long knowing B&M.

The next candle which I am loving is the Yankee Candle Snow In Love which reminds me of a man and women getting ready for a night out like you do in the festive period and the perfume and aftershave which they are spraying. This is one which I am so glad has come back this year because I adore it. The reason I feel like is because it reminds me of when I used to go on nights out I do not go out as much anymore due to having Jess.

The final Yankee candle which I have love is Christmas Eve which to me just smells just like Christmas if I had to just describe one note I can smell Orange but like a heated warm orange scent if this makes any sense at all. I know this is not the greatest scent description so if you are lucky to live close to a Yankee store or somewhere which stocks Yankee go and have a sniff of this one.  The large Yankee candles are £21.99, however, they can actually be found sometimes cheaper in the outlet stores.

The final candle which I have is Secret Santa from Bomb Cosmetics this is one which Joe decided that he liked the smell of so I purchase it, yes I am that shallow when it comes to candles. This reminds me of the warm smell of Christmas and being all cosy for some reason it must be the hint of ginger.  I managed to pick this up at a local store however you can purchase this one online. It would actually make an amazing secret Santa present and is around £8 for this size tin picture, unfortunately, they only do one size.

What are you favourite Christmas candle?
