Perfect for fans of hit 90s sitcom, Friends, this Valentine's Day candle from Flamingo Candles features the iconic line - which references how Ross and Rachel are meant to be - 'You're My Lobster'.
The cuteness of this candle is further upgraded thanks to the pink colour of the soy wax and the bright coral colour of the candle container.

Complete with notes of fizzy rosé, strawberries and cream, along with pretty pink soy wax, this candle both smells and looks seriously beautiful. The candle is also free from nasty chemicals and toxins, and the ingredients are never tested on animals. Plus, Look Dollicious donates a portion of its profits to female-focused charities. Girl power!
