Wow, can you believe a year has passed since Flamingo Candles started their hugely successful subscription box, 'The Melt Crowd'? I can't believe it! It seems like only yesterday that I took the plunge and happily signed up. Originally, the only subscription box I'd signed up to before was with Birchbox, and after a few months I had to cancel because I didn't feel like I was getting much use out of all the items. Thankfully that isn't the case when it comes to Flamingo Candles' own subscription boxes!

Sadly for me, I'm a month behind some other subscribers. I'd finally decided to sign up one day and came to see that the first box was no longer available, so in the end I had to wait around for the next month to come about. And every month since, I've been pretty much a very happy candle addict! Plus I can't even say there's been one box I've never really liked - there's been a couple of melts here or there that I can't 100% say are for me, but as a whole I've been impressed.

This months box, as well as celebrating The Melt Crowd's first birthday, has been one of those that you can smell as soon as it slips through the letterbox - it's divine! The first thing I noticed was that there's a gorgeous, sweet but kind of musky scent to the box, with quite a hint of banana. Interesting!

'WILD Lemon Alcopop' Scent Melt - Last month, Melt Crowd subscribers were treated to a little preview of their new range with the 'Dewberry' scent melt (check out Aprils box here). This month we have another little treat from the 'Wild' range - 'Lemon Alcopop'. Said to be a fruity and fizzy scent, this melt seriously packs a punch and is very uplifting - I think I'm going to add this to the growing list of candles I seriously want in my collection!

'Fresh Aloe' Scent Melt - Whenever I think of aloe vera, it always reminds me of hot weather and sunbathing. Of course, as a seriously pale girl whenever the sun hits my skin, I tend to burn. So I always need some of it in my travel bag! This melt is gorgeous and fresh, and just smelling it kind of reminds me of days at the beach or by the pool.

'Banana' Scent Melt - I've never been a fan of bananas because to me they just don't taste right - I have no idea what it is but I just can't get on with them at all. To me, this melt smells a bit sweeter and more like those soft banana sweets my dad used to love when I was younger.

'May Carnival' Scent Melt - Easily one of my favourite melts of the box, 'May Carnival' has a delicious sweet and fruity tone to it. It kind of reminds me of something like raspberry lemonade - it seems to have a little fizz to it, whilst carrying a berry hint throughout. Yummy!

'Coconut Lemongrass' Scent Melt - Anyone who knows me knows I'm not really a fan of coconut - we seriously don't get along (bar the 'Hello Hydration Herbal Essences range anyway). There's a subtle lemon under hint which seems to work pretty well with the coconut, now matter how much I tend to dislike the stuff. Thankfully though, the two work well together to create a uniquely different scent unlike any other.

'Clean Cotton' Scent Melt - I'm sure we've come across this melt before, but it always freshens any room with it's soft, clean notes. Liam described this as a 'very girly scent' and I'm not sure why - if anything, it reminds me of soft and fresh linen. Like curling up in bed once you've put new bedsheets on - bliss!

'Cola Jellies' Scent Melt - Alongside 'May Carnival', this melt has to be one of my favourites of the box. Heck, I'm going to say it - this is definitely my favourite melt of the box! I used to love fizzy cola bottle sweets when I was younger, and the 'Cola Jellies' melt perfectly embodies that fragrance. Jot me down for one of these candles, ASAP!

'Wild Bluebell' Scent Melt - The only floral kind of melt in the box, its quite a refreshing melt compared to the sweeter ones. With a slight musk to it, I have to admit this melt is a little bit addictive, and slightly different to any other floral melts we've had before.

'Birthday Cake' Scent Melt (Special Birthday Gift) - Ah, it wouldn't be a melt crowd box without a little extra something now would it! With it now being the first birthday of The Melt Crowd, Flamingo Candles know how to celebrate - with a delicious 'Birthday Cake' scented melt! And let me tell you now, boy is it a good one. It's practically made me drool - it smells that good!

For the first birthday of The Melt Crowd, Flamingo Candles have definitely created a perfect box in celebration. Each melt in the May box is pretty welcoming and not too overpowering as we start to head into Summer. So why not join me now in saying: Happy Birthday Melt Crowd!
