It's no secret that I'm a big fan of scented candles. In winter I'm all about warm comforting fragrances but come summer time, like with perfume I find myself gravitating towards lighter more fruity scents. My latest discovery is Flamingo candles and with flavours such as pink lemonade, they really couldn't be more perfect for summer:
Hand made in the UK, all Flamingo candles are organic and made with soybean and natural wick. Previously I'd never given much thought to the ingredients but nowadays since I get through so many candles, it's important for me that they're as natural as possible. After all, there's no point exposing ourselves unnecessarily to extra pollutants and toxins, especially when there are so many natural/organic brands out there.
Scent wise, this really is pink lemonade in a candle. Think sugary sweet strawberries but still with the zestiness and sharpness of fresh fizzy lemons. Once lit, it gently fills the entire room and if looked after properly can offer up to 50 hours of burn time. Packaging wise, it's more quirky and fun than luxurious and decorative, but at £12 a candle these are a real bargain and a good alternative to some of the more high end brands.
