Caught in the Afterglow

When I am looking for a little "Me" time I will light a couple of the JimmyJane Little Afterglow candles and line the tube with them for a great aromatherapy bath and then once done with my bath I choose a candle to use to rub into my skin as a moisturizer. It makes me feel like I have been to the spa.

The JimmyJane Little Afterglow Sampler consists of 6 little massage candles. They come in a very nice JimmyJane box, which is white with the JimmyJane written in black across the middle of the box. It comes tied with a beautiful ribbon, which is perfect for gift giving!

You will receive 6 delicious and inciting scents.
Pink Lotus, Dark Vanilla, Truffle and Gardenia, Bourbon, Cucumber Water and Grapefruit.

The Pink Lotus has a very floral scent to it. I personally am not a floral fan, to me the scent reminded me of a perfume an old lady would wear.

The Dark Vanilla is a very light scent, and vaguely reminds me of a softer men's cologne. Which is great if you are looking for a more masculine scent or looking for something to use on your significant other.

The Truffle and Gardenia is very inciting. This was one of my favorite scents. It have a very complex scent. It have a very light floral scent, but it isn't over powering like with the Pink Lotus scent. The scent reminds me of the beginning of summer. It smells like fresh air, sunshine and newly blossomed flowers.

The Bourbon is delicious! It smells like a finely aged bourbon. I love the scent, its very sultry and is sure to seduce your senses. It smells exactly like a delicious amber bourbon.

The Cucumber Water smells a lot like any cucumber melon scent you can find on the market. I didn't see anything special about it. It smells fresh and crisp, but then again you can find that type of scent anywhere with a cucumber melon scent.

The Grapefruit scent was amazing. It is intoxicatingly strong. It reminds me of the smell of a freshly cut pink grapefruit. If you are a grapefruit fan this is definitely the candle for you. After lighting it my husband came out and said "I didn't know we had grapefruit".

It suggests in the directions supplied by JimmyJane that you light the candle 30mins before using, to guarantee an even burn. I suggest doing this or you will never get an even burn with your candle again. The candle so tiny, its only about 1 inch high so you are only going to get about 2-3 burns out of each one, so I would definitely make sure you get the best burn of the candle to perserve as much of it as you can.

We use these candles both as temperature/wax play and as massage candles. When using as a massage candle they leave your skin so soft after, and they absorb really well into the skin. I don't have that icky feeling that I need to go shower after using them. In fact I want to keep it on my skin, because the delightful scents will lightly scent your skin and the oils will make your skin so touchable.

JimmyJane was a mastermind to include all these amazing scents in a great sampler. This is especially great for people who want to try massage candles but aren't exactly sure what type of candle or what scent they like. This way you can easily try them all and they come in just little white ceramic jars.

Where these are massage candles they make an awesome gift. I bought four sets of these to give away at christmas and paired them with a Contour M massage stone, also made by JimmyJane. Everyone loved them and were asking me where I got them so that they could get more.

These candles are like Pringles! Once you start you just can't stop! You will keep coming back for more!
Experience
We always have some JimmyJane afterglow candles on hand, and by having the sampler all the time we get to choose the scent we would like from the JimmyJane line. It always feels like we are walking into a boutique and choosing our favorite scent each time. Where you get 2-3 burns out of each candle, you get tons of massage time. When I am looking for a little "Me" time I will light a couple of the JimmyJane Little Afterglow candles and line the tube with them for a great aromatherapy bath and then once done with my bath I choose a candle to use to rub into my skin as a moisturizer. It makes me feel like I have been to the spa.
Follow-up commentary
We have purchased another Little afterglow sampler. I love that you aren't restricted to one scent, which rocks! My favorite scent is the grapefruit but my hubby likes the bourbon.

    It was very helpful! I didn't know there are a sampler. I think it's exactly for us because I don't know what I'd like. You did a good job explaining the scents.
