Delicious, Luxe Candle from Jimmy Jane

C'mon Baby Light My Fire...This luxurious massage candle sets the mood, fills the air with a delicious, expensive-smelling scent, and provides a warm and silky liquid to make your massages glide. Another winner from Jimmy Jane.

Use

This luxurious soy wax candle is a smaller version of the Jimmy Jane Ember candle that I also had the pleasure of reviewing. It's about half the size of the Ember candle and does not come with a lid.

The liquefied soy wax will get rather warm, but will not get hot enough to burn your skin. You can drip it all over your partner and then use it to deliver a nicely-scented massage.

I would never put anything highly-scented in my nether regions, but it works well on the rest of the body, including breasts, without irritating the skin. Those with sensitive or allergic skin might want to stay away from any scented product, however.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The thin, silky wax has a great texture for giving massage. It's closer to an oil than a body lotion, and absorbs into the skin a little more than an oil, but lasts much longer than a body cream.

The soy wax is easy to pour because there's a subtle spout on one side of the square container--don't forget to extinguish the flame before pouring! You should wait until the entire surface is liquefied so that the candle wears easily.

Taste / Aroma

I was a little skeptical when I saw the "grapefruit" scent, as this smell can often go wrong and just smell like chemicals. However, it smells really lovely and the scent has more in common with a high-end perfume than a bath & body works spritz. The citrusy scent is enhanced by notes of warm vanilla and bergamot and is pleasantly complex.

It does have a rather strong scent, which I appreciate, but others might not. When it's been burning for 15-20 minutes, the smell envelops the room, setting the mood, and it lingers on your body like a fine perfume after you've received a massage with it.
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell

Performance

I like the warmth when it first drops on your skin, and I love how it smells, both when it's still in the candle and afterward. It offers a pretty great massage product as well, and I appreciate that it absorbs into the skin a little more quickly than oil because it makes it feel less messy. It still provides plenty of glide for a nice massage. I don't feel it needs to be washed off with soap and water, so that's a major plus. It will also leave you nicely scented, which I appreciate.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting

Packaging

It comes in attractive packaging, but nothing you would want to keep, unlike the more expensive Ember candle. I think that it would make a lovely gift--especially if paired with coupons redeemable for massages!
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

I really enjoyed the warm, silky lotion being poured on my body, and I love the scent so much I would wear it as perfume.
Follow-up commentary
It still smells lovely, and I still love it. I had forgotten about it at the back of a drawer for months, but the nice thing about finding it again is that it is like rediscovering it. Because it was in the nice box, it's not dusty, and it works perfectly.
