Good, yet disappointing...

While this is a pretty candle in a reusable jar, it's good for nothing more than adding ambiance and a bit of sensuality to a scenario, not anything extra special at all.

This little romantic candle really is pretty and smells good. If you have your nose shoved into it. The Champagne Lights scented candle has pinkish-almost-purpley meltable beads in it that melt down into wax when you light the candle. (Always keep safety in mind. Please don't leave the candle unattended!) The scent I got is French vanilla. While it does smell like it, it doesn't really permeate a room. Also, once it's burned down a bit, when unlit it begins to have a sooty smell. Not romantic at all.

It's quite small in a little glass jar about 3" tall and 1 1/2" wide. It has a nice aluminum lid you can put on when it's not in use. Since it's in a jar, you don't have to worry about wax dripping, which I really like. Being a bit of a candle whore, I do forever have wax drippings everywhere. Also, I found that there's very little smoke with this candle. There's a little after you blow it out; but if you just put the lid on it when it's still lit, it'll go out on its own and you will have no smoke at all.

Due to how small this is, you get very little light with it. If you like to do things by candle light, you'll need several of these, or just add this to a collection of other candles.

As for the pheromones, we did not notice any difference in attraction, arousal, or anything like that with the candle lit or not lit. I think the most you'll get with this candle is some added sensual ambiance.

I love that it comes in a reusable container! Once you've used this one down, you can reuse the glass jar for another home-made candle, storage, or whatever; though, you will have the writing that's on the jar.
Experience
One thing that worked well is using this in a bathroom during a bath. Last night, D drew me a bath, lit this candle, and put it on the bath of the toilet, right next to the bath. He also lit another stronger scented candle further down in the bathroom. (Our bathroom is rather long.) Having this one right next to the tub helped the scent travel to me. With the smaller flame on it, I didn't have any random candle flickers in my eyes.

I think it's a lot better for sensual bath ambiance or another similar scenario.
Follow-up commentary
Still not my favorite candle; it just sits on the back of my toilet for when I take baths. It emits barely any light and pretty much no scent. Totally not worth it.

    I just don't find buying candles this small worth it at all. I always end up buying the huge ones and paying more since they last for a long time. I wouldn't want this unless it was larger. Especially since you said the smell is really light. Maybe it would be more noticeable with a larger candle. Good review!

    Thanks Lauren! I do agree that it would be more worth it in a larger size. I wonder if the scent is so light since it's one of those bead type candles, rather than a standard wax one. lol who knows

    I'm the same way as Lauren..small candles just make me sad even if I like them..actually ESPECIALLY if I like them because I find myself not wanting to light them because then they'll be gone

    I've always wondered about this candle, as well as meny others. Thanks for the review! Ill be sure to take this one off my list.

    Maybe Lauren is right. Bigger just might be better!

    @alicia yea, I rarely like small candles, but after this one I actually am thinking I prefer small candles for when I'm taking a bath. *shrugs* We all have our odd quirks, right? LOL

    @ashley87 yea, sometimes bigger just is better! LOL

    Sounds like it would be perfect for both my guys. They have overly sensitive noses and lighter fragrances are much appreciated. I love the fact that this has a lid and won't collect dust which smells awful when lit!
    Great review and excellent suggestion for use.

    Great review, it's a shame that the scent is a little lacking, the beads that melt down sounds like a great idea though.

    Mhmm, as a candle on the whole it's pretty good, but it's small and the scent is not very scent-full lol
