The Melt Crowd | October 2015

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Melt Crowd - October 2015

Don't you just love 'The Melt Crowd' by Flamingo Candles?! At the beginning of each month I'm literally buzzing with excitement waiting for the little package to drop through my letterbox. This month is actually my third month with the Melt Crowd, and as a little celebration I was actually sent an extra little gift which smells gorgeous and makes me seriously hungry.

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Melt Crowd - October 2015

So far, I've been thoroughly impressed with Flamingo Candles. Before this subscription box I'd never owned any products by them - with such a wide variety of scents to meet everyones individuals tastes, the options are endless. I wouldn't have known where to start with which candle to purchase, and that's why this box is perfect. You get to sample such a broad range of flavours, pick your favourites and even get a discount code each month if you're feeling getting more.

'Applecurrant Crumble' Scent Melt
Rich and sweet, 'Applecurrant Crumble' is a delicious blend of warm apple puree and brown sugar highlighted by fruity notes of raisin, rich plum and lemon peel. All of this is covered with a golden topping of all-butter pastry crumble.

Apple crumble has to be one of my favourite deserts ever, it's just so warm and delicious, and satisfies my sweet tooth. The 'Applecurrant Crumble' melt is no exception - it brings about all those feelings of warmth, and you can just smell the hint of the pastry crumble in it too. It actually makes me hungry just smelling this, and when used it could probably work deceptively to make your home smell like you've been cooking.

'Pomegranate & White Fig' Scent Melt
Luxurious and sultry, 'Pomegranate and White Fig is a beautiful blend of Exotic fresh fig fruit, green fig leaf, pink pepper, cardamom, frankincense and citrus, leading to a heart of clove, patchouli, lily, blended with fruity blackcurrant, warming amber and woody fig bark.

There's something about this scent that just works. It has a floral kind of smell to it, with a hint of fruitiness. With a warm undertone, this melt is really quite relaxing and probably my favourite of the box. For me, the patchouli is probably the dominant scent, and I absolutely love it. I seriously can't get enough of this melt.

'Golden Woodlands' Scent Melt

Flamingo Candles have really outdone themselves with this melt. Whilst I couldn't find any trace of it on the website, it isn't labelled as a box exclusive so I'm praying that I'll be able to find this soon. Golden Woodlands is a stunning, earthy melt which is perfect for autumn. I can just picture kicking back with a book by the fire, all whilst this melt is burning. Liam loves this melt, and it even reminds me of his Hugo Boss aftershave.

'Bubblegum' Scent Melt
Sweet and delicious, our 'Bubblegum' fragrance is a sugary delight. A blend of fruit and sugar, this fun moreish flavour transports you right back to childhood days blowing bubbles. This is the perfect girly fragrance full of sweetie goodness. 

Words can't even describe this melt, wow. Do you remember juicy fruit chewing gum? Well this is the exact same scent, only in melt form. The website describes this as transporting you 'right back to childhood days blowing bubbles', and it couldn't be more spot on. It makes you kind of all nostalgic for your youth.

'Nutmeg & Ginger' Scent Melt
This one is a melt crowd exclusive, and like most of the other exclusives, that makes me pretty sad. It's such a nice warm scent with traces of ginger which lingers afterwards, and it's definitely suitable for this season. I sense a running theme with this months box, don't you?

'Pink Ribbon' Scent Melt
'Pink Ribbon' is a rich, cranberry accord dominated by top notes of sweet cranberry blended with prune juice, complimented by a fruity floral heart of summer strawberry, sun ripened raspberry and citrus orange with sweet honey and rose notes. On dry down the base is woody and powdery with notes of cedarwood and vanilla with a hint of raspberry.

The Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839) is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or who have been affected by breast cancer or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment.

Both the 'Pink Ribbon' candle and wax melt are special edition, so if you're eyeing them up I'd snap them up quick! Plus, 20% of each sale of them goes to the Pink Ribbon Foundation, who do truly amazing work to raise awareness and help people affected by breast cancer. Scentwise it's a gorgeous fruity melt, with strong tones of raspberry which remind me of berry smoothies.

'Thunderstorm' Scent Melt
Masculine and earthy, 'Thunderstorm' forms top notes of ozone, melon and soil, leading to a floral heart and woody base notes of patchouli, peat and amber.

Thunderstorm is a candle I've been eyeing up since it came out on the flamingo candles website, and I've always been curious as to how it smelt. It had such an intriguing name, and I was so excited to see it included in this months box. With an earthy tone and such a strong whiff of soil to it, it really does remind you of a storm. 'Thunderstorm' is another one of my favourites in the box, and I think it's because it's so unique and different to anything else.

'Cranberry, Orange & Cinnamon' Scent Melt
Zesty and refreshing, 'Cranberry, Orange & Cinnamon' explosion is a blend of sweet cranberries enhanced with the spicy notes of orange peel, and the woody notes of cinnamon sticks followed up with a sharp zest of lemon rind to give this fabulous fragrance a kick.

This melt is so refreshing and uplifting, which seems to be a bit of a contrast to some of the other melts in the box which are warmer and more autumnal. It's nice, strong and powerful, and you can faintly detect the cinnamon scent mixed in. I think it's quite nice and more summery, and it's nice to have a bit of a reminder of the summer months now that it's getting progressively colder outside.

'Banana Split' Scent Eggs
Because this month marks my three month anniversary with The Melt Crowd (seriously, I love you Flamingo Candles), I was sent an extra little gift. And it made me very happy, because it smells fantastic. With a mix of Banana, Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry, the scent eggs are something a little different. Each one is marked with the standard little flamingo which is super cute, and combined the four make a mouthwatering scent.

It seems like with each box, I fall more and more in love with Flamingo Candles and The Melt Crowd. I seriously can't get enough. Although as it is Halloween this month, I was hoping for a pumpkin scented melt or something, which I thought would be great. Oh well, I'm happy with my Pomegranate melt and Banana Split eggs for now!
