Jimmyjane’s Afterglow massage candles are the perfect way to spruce up any massage. According to the booklet that comes with the candle, Afterglow massage candles are made from a blend of natural spa-grade ingredients, which provide great sensation and the perfect melting point. They are free of paraffin, dye and inhibitions, phthalates, parabens, sulfates and have a lead-free wick. Each candle boasts 32 hours of burn time.

These candles come in many different scents; I chose the Dark Vanilla. My candle arrived in a predominantly white, square, box with all of the pertinent information. In my opinion, the box is very discreet. Although it is labeled as a massage candle, it is very tastefully done. When you pop open the top of the box, the inside is lined with red.

The candle itself is square and measures about 2.5” x 2.5”. When I first took it out of the box, the open part of the candle was covered with an opaque, white label to cover the wax. When not burning, the wax is still relatively soft, and if you rub it, a residue will come off on your hand. When it's not lit, you can smell the candle's fragrance but it’s not too aggressive. However when I began burning it, the room was almost immediately filled with the candle's scent. Even when I only left this candle to burn for about 30 minutes, I could clearly smell the scent all throughout the next day. For me, this is wonderful, but if you are sensitive to scents you may not care for these.

The scent itself is quite nice. After reading other reviews of the dark vanilla scent, I was a bit worried, but, personally, I really like it. It’s not an overly sweet, fake-smelling vanilla or the scent of baking cookies but instead it’s a very warm, slightly sweet, and kind of manly version of the scent.

These really do burn at the perfect temperature; I actually prefer this candle to my massage oils because of the temperature. The oil from the candle soaks into the skin quite nicely, as well, and leaves behind its lovely scent.

I’m really looking forward to trying different scents of the Afterglow massage candles. If you see any of these in stock, be sure to grab one. It took months for me to come across this candle in stock--they sell out fast, and now I know why.

    I've heard from others that the scent is really strong, too, so maybe I might not like this.. thank you for the review!
