I haven't been this impressed with a candle in a long time. I used to only burn Yankee Candles and honestly, this candle in terms of scent throw, knocks it out of the park when compared to Yankee Candle jar candles! I have been burning this so much over the past couple of weeks and I still have half left but I know I will need to stock up on this scent in particlar.
This is the BAH! Bumbug Candle from Flamingo Candles' Christmas collection for 2016 and it has become one of my all time favourite scents and I can't wait to burn it into December. If candles aren't your thing but you like home fragrance, this scent will also be able in the Scent Melt which I am definitely going to be ordering a few of this scent and some of the other Christmas scents!
This scent is described as being a festive and refreshing scent of peppermint with soft and sweet candy notes. This smells exactly as described, think candy canes with the coolness from the peppermint and an almost vanilla like sweetness to it, I am honestly addicted to the scent. As soon as you lift of the lid, even after multiple burns, you can smell the scent as it is a strong scented candle but it isn't overpowering in the slightest. This is what I wanted Yankee Candle's North Pole to smell like but this is one from Flamingo Candles blows it out of the water and if you can't tell - I am obsessed.
After a few minutes of my first burn with this candle, I knew it was going to be a good one! The scent quickly started to fill my bedroom and after a few hours it actually filled my whole house with the fragrance which has never happened with any candle I have used before. My mum came home when I was burning this and she obviously didn't know, and as soon as she walked in the door she asked me what candle I was burning and it was upstairs - so impressive for such a small and affordable candle! I thought that maybe this would only happen for the first burn but each and every time I have burned it I have had the same results.
This candle has the recommended burn time of 40 hours and at £8.50, you really can't beat it! I am definitely going to order a few of these myself and some for gifts because I am so impressed! The Christmas collection from Flamingo Candles is out on the 7th of November 2016 and you will be able to purchase this scent and the first of the candles from the collection from their website - HERE.
