Flamingo Candles Applecurrant Crumble

Flamingo Candles Applecurrant Crumble Classic Square Jar Candle* - £12

With all the dreary Autumn weather we've been having recently there's nothing better than wrapping yourself up warm, relaxing with a hot drink & indulging in the scent of a fresh new candle. Flamingo Candles clearly know the way to my heart and a few weeks ago they sent me one of the new fragrances from their current Autumn/Winter collection, Applecurrant Crumble. If apple pie is the quintessential American dessert then apple crumble is surely ours. That's why Applecurrant Crumble couldn't be a more apt candle for the British Autumn season. The scent is described as a 'delicious blend of warm apple puree and brown sugar highlighted by fruity notes of raisin, rich plum and lemon peel. All of this is covered with a golden topping of all-butter pastry crumble'. It fills your home with a realistic scent of freshly baked crumble which never fails to make me feel hungry! It smells sweet & comforting with a luscious blend of fruit. I much prefer this kind of scent to the spicier offerings we normally get around this time of year. I've amassed quite a few Flamingo Candles now but this is definitely my favourite out of all of them. The Applecurrant Crumble candle actually reminds me of one they bought out last year, Toasted Almonds & Plum Crumble, but this one is even more powerfully scented & the apples give it a scrumptious tangy twist. It beautifully captures the essence of Autumn. This candle is a real olfactory treat & I simply can't get enough of it!

Flamingo Candles are easily one of my favourite candle brands. Not only do they have an ever expanding range of divine scents, all of their products are handmade & organic to boot. They are made from EcoSoya soy wax and feature a natural cotton wick so you get a clean, non-toxic burn. They're environmentally-friendly too. Each of these classic square jar candles offers up to 50 hours of burn time which is so impressive considering their size & price. One of the things I like best about these candles is their super cute packaging. They look amazing on top of my fireplace & dotted around my bedroom. Applecurrant Crumble comes with a pretty pastel green wax & a gold acrylic Florrie flamingo on the front. It looks adorable & smells truly incredible, what more could you want from a candle?
