Mary Zilba Soy CandleThis candle is very classy, it has a great aroma which will fill the entire room, and is made of very safe products, its made of nothing except 100% safe soy wax and fragrance. The downside to this is that because it doesn't include any type of oils in the ingredients it doesn't really work well for massage. So as long as you feel ok spending 30 bucks on a plain ol' candle, its perfect. Otherwise I'd stick to Jimmyjane.

This candle smells great! Even when it is not burning and I walk by it the aroma floats by me and takes me to a relaxing place. I actually just now had it sitting next to me and my husband just came up to hug me and said, "Wow babe, you smell great!" Funny thing.... I've been at the gym bustin' my butt and I'm pretty sure... I smell like butt too! This candle is GREAT for setting the mood, for relaxation, or frisky extracurricular activities as well! I don't exactly find it the best option for massages, I definitely have other brands I prefer, but it does an o.k. job, and its completely safe, which is a plus. It would also make a great gift, it comes in simple packaging and doesn't proclaim anything that would give away the fact that you bought it at an adult store.
When this candle melts, the texture is somewhere right between velvety and greasy. I can;t really decide if it leave me feeling really moisturized or really oily. Which I do not like. Its also not something that can just be washed off, it definitely absorbs into your skin, so before you go pouring this all over like crazy, I would recommend testing a small bit of it on your forearm to make sure you are ok with the way it feels. It is a bit messy to pour, there isn't a pour spout, so the wax kind of got all over the container. Also, the wax is pretty runny, so try small amounts of it first, and be careful where you use it. You wouldn't want to ruin your sheets, or your carpet.
As I said before the candle smells amazing, honestly I would love to have a body perfume with the same scent. As far as taste goes, I don't expect that you would want to ingest this candle, but since it is 100% safe, I for the sake of exploration, did taste some of the wax, and it just tastes... well... waxy! It doesn't have an atrocious flavor or anything so if you accidentally get some in your mouth you'll be ok, I'm sure.
This candle will last quite some time, if you are just burning it. Of course, if you are using it as a massage candle, it will burn up much quicker, depending on how much you use, but as for me, I am just using it solely as a candle, and it had been through many burn sessions now and I have hardly put a dent in this candle. It burns clean, and it throws well. I do wish that it had a higher oil content, because then it would have been more effective as a massage candle, it makes a pretty expensive regular candle.
Follow-up commentary 3 months after original review
I do still like this candle, with a disclaimer. I probably will not repurchase it, as it is rather expensive for some mood lighting, or something I burn for light when the power goes out. It has lasted quite some time, which is nice. I burned it for about four hours the other night, and it only dropped about an inch. So, it is pretty awesome.
