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?
