By now most will know I have a weakness for candles and with Valentines Day just around the corner I am pretty much in my element with all the new candle launches. Yay!
If you are on the look out for something a little less traditional than say a red rose fragrance then you may want to check out Flamingo Candles Love Potion Candle.
"A sweet, glittery treat..Love Potion is a sweet and fruity, more-ish fragrance which will make you fall head over heels in love. Sugary notes of candy, vanilla and pear are mixed with glitter and a certain je ne sais quoi to create the perfect Valentine’s candle."
To my nose Flamingo Candles Love Potion has a very Victoria Secret vibe - sweet yet almost musky. It isn't your typical candy based scent due to the addition of pear but oh so girly thanks to hints of Vanilla and in my opinion a subtle strawberry note - it doesn't smell strong in the jar but once lit it fills the room with a sugary essence within minutes that lingers all day. That is the beauty of Flamingo Candles they really pack a punch when it comes to scent throw. I can imagine the likes of Cher Horowitz from Clueless burning this...bizarre I know but the bright pink wax and flecks of glitter scream 90's chic. In a word cute!
