Flamingo Candles Candy Shop - Parma Violet

Monday, April 14, 2014

If you ever come to my house it will be immediately clear that I have a bit of a scented candle addiction. To say I have a few would be an understatement, at any given time its guaranteed I'll be burning at least one candle or wax tart.

My favorite scents tend to be ether sweet or citrus. I love burning the Arran Aromatics Just Grapefruit candle during the day but have been looking for something a bit less zesty and sweeter in the evenings

Flamingo Candles have launched a Candy Shop range of candles and wax tarts which feature amazing scents such as Pear Drop, Candy Floss and Bubblegum. My favorite sweets, weirdly enough, are Parma Violets so I knew their namesake candle would be right up my street.
The candle itself is housed in a pretty mason/jam type jar with a lid and cute lazer cut flamingo on the front (I'm told his name is Florrie).
Flamingo Candles are all made with soybeans and natural cotton wicks (some special editions have wooden wicks). They are Eco-Friendly and burn at a cooler temperature than most candles which means the scent starts to fill the room almost straight after lighting.

"Sweet and floral, Parma Violets is a gorgeous powdery blend of violets and roses. Overflowing with nostalgia, its warm fragrance comforts and relaxes without having to unwrap the sweetie packaging."

I think that Flamingo Candles have the description pretty much spot on, Parma Violet is a very light, sweet aroma that fills the room with a delicate scent.
I have the classic candle (£12.00) which is 200g of wax and has around a 50 hour burn time.

You can buy Flamingo Candles via their website and they would make a fantastic Easter gift for Mums or Girlfriends.
