I’m still working through the Flamingo Candles I got earlier on in the year from their candy shop collection
and needless to say, they smells delicious! The candles themselves look great, I love the square glass jars and each candle has a different coloured perspex flamingo on it, which looks really cute! I’ve got five Flamingo Candles now and they look so good lined up side by side.
My new candles are both a similar shade of green and as they fragrances are both apple based, so they smell fairly similar too. The one with the black flamingo is Cinnamon Appleberry and the one with the gold flamingo on it is Applecurrant Crumble.
Applecurrant Crumble is part of Flamingo Candle’s A/W collection and is a blend of apple puree, brown sugar, raisin, plum and lemon peel. It’s a sweet fragrance with apple being the base note but there is a “biscuity” scent which comes through quite strongly, I guess that’s the part that makes it smell like a buttery pastry crumble!
Cinnamon Appleberry is a lovely, warming candle. It’s a Halloween special, so I don’t know if this candle is going to be on sale after 31st Oct, but that spicy cinnamon scent smells like the toasty air on Bonfire Night! Besides from cinnamon, the other smells in this candle are apple, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Delicious!
Out of the two, I prefer Cinnamon Appleberry, the scent more familiar than the other candle as I haven’t got used to the biscuity smell from Applecurrant Crumble yet. I’m pretty happy with how these colourful jars light up my room and the when the candle is burning, the scent isn’t too overpowering.
All Flamingo Candles are made of EcoSoya soy wax and natural cotton wicks which is better for the environment and also for you too as it’s non-toxic. Soy wax burns cleaner and with less soot. They have lots of new candles in their Autumn/Winter range including Sweet Lime and Cedar, Amber and Lavender, Blackberry and Bay Leaf, White Lilac and Rhubarb. Check out the rest of the candles here
