Tropical Coconut Milk & Honey Flamingo Candle

Tropical Coconut Milk & Honey Candle* by Flamingo Candles £12.00 (200g, 50h burn time)

I am a big fan of luxury candles and I mostly buy from NEOM Organics, but I was really drawn to the quirky design of Flamingo Candles and their fun, scrumptious fragrances. Their candles are organic, hand poured in Britain and made with fairtrade, eco-friendly soya oil. Perfect for those who try to stay away from paraffin based candles, but don't want to break the bank.

The scent I picked is a mixture of pineapple, banana, almond, coconut, vanilla and tonka and it smells absolutely gorgeous.  It's like pina colada in a candle jar :) Sweet, tropical and absolutely gorgeous. I wish the scent was a bit stronger when the candle is burning, but it is enough to fill a normal sized room with a tropical aroma. My living room is enormous, so it would need 2-3 candles to fill it with the fragrance properly. Neom does it with just one 3-wick jar :)

The wax of my Flamingo candle is yellow and it looks lovely in my bedroom. I have a white, yellow and grey theme going on so it fits in perfectly. The jar comes with a black lid - essential to keep your candle clean and fresh. I think that all brands should  provide lids for their candles. The cute white flamingo on the front adds a nice touch and the candle would make a lovely, affordable gift. 


Overall, I am very pleased with my first Flamingo candle and I might buy more in the future. They are cute, affordable and free from nasty ingredients. Have you tried this brand?

  5. I've never tried this brand or NEOM for that matter! I'm loving the sound of a Pina Coloda scented room, haha. Will have to see if there's any way of getting my hands on them in the US! :)
