Flamingo Candle – Love Potion


Hmm.. not sure what to say about this one. I really wanted to love it but I just don’t however I have a feeling that it’s a scent preference rather than an out and out awful candle. To me as soon as I sniffed it I smelled baby wipes and nappy bags.. now if you’re not a parent or someone used to be around small people (by which I mean children, not trying to be politically incorrect here) then you may not pick up on this and you might love it but I just couldn’t. I lit it in the hope that it would burn differently but it’s sickly and just really not to my taste.. the last thing I’d call ‘Love Potion’. I have read other reviews and nobody else has found anything other than pleasant notes in this so I will be giving it away to fellow blogger, Laura – link – who does not have children and has volunteered to offer up a second opinion. I love how this looks, it even has glitter on top before you burn it so I was tempted to keep it just for decoration but if someone else can love it I’d rather it go to a better home.

I loved the Vanilla and Black Pepper candle I was sent from Flamingo but I just really wasn’t keen on this, forgive me!

    I tried the Parma Violets one the other day and it’s delightful. You should give it a try. 🙂

    Nothing like a good, brutally honest review!
    It’s a shame because it looks so pretty.

    Ah…I really wanted to try this! If it’s a sort of baby powdery smell I think I would probably like it though xx

    I REALLY want to try one of the Flamingo Candles! They sound delicious and better for you than most of the candles out there at the moment. 🙂
