This is an excellent candle for setting the mood and massages. You actually use the warm liquid oil of the candle as massage oil which feels great. The scent couldn't be any better (Dark Vanilla). I highly recommend this to anyone with a partner to massage.
Wonderful smell, great consistency, hot, sets the mood
Can't really use it alone / none.

This candle was an overall delight! It has a nice, relaxing scent that will help ease your body and mind. It went off perfectly and will leave you in bliss basking in an amazing afterglow.
Smells great, doesn't burn skin, discreet, nice packaging
Hard to pour/apply, must wash hands after applying, takes a while to melt, a little pricey

When you consider that this is kind of a dual purpose product and the wonderful smell of the candle, it's not hard to see why this little luxury item might be worth it for anyone who enjoys giving massages. Plus, you won't need an oil warmer anymore!

The Afteglow Candle by Jimmyjane is absolutely wonderful! It smells delightful, and feels sinfully good from the moment it hits your skin, to the moment that the last luxurious drop fades into your skin. It leaves you feeling relaxed, warm, and sexy all at the same time. Pair that with a sensual massage from your partner... and you two will feel amazingly intimate. I would recommend this product to anyone!
And Gone... WAY TOO FAST!

As a massage candle, the Gingersnap Afterglow is excellent at what it does. If you like hot/warm massages and gingery, spicy, baked goods, I think you'll especially love this one. The wax/oil melts faster than the other Afterglow wax scents I've tried, and it absorbs nicely too. Though the container makes it a little messy to pour, and you have to commit to a full-size Afterglow (with its $28 price tag), it's worth trying, especially if you're a fan of the Dark Vanilla scent.
Ginger cookie scent, faster melting than other Afterglow scents
Scent may be too strong for some, should come in sampler size for customers to try it, messy to pour

Considering how expensive massage oils, good candles, and moisturizers can be, this is a win, win, win product. Plain and simple, if you are experienced in massage, this will blow your mind. If you are starting massage play, this will blow your mind. I don't know why this isn't sold everywhere, because it's so good.
actually does what it's supposed to

If you like candles, things that smell nice, massages, or nice skin, you need to get this candle. There's a fragrance out there for you no matter what your tastes are. This candle not only works great for a massage oil, but it also helps to set the romantic, relaxing mood for a luxurious experience. The wax works better for massage than some of my more expensive massage oils, and it's a beautiful candle with a long life.

Slight waxy feeling on skin after massage.

These candles have been on my wishlist for so long and I'm so happy with this purchase! I want to buy the rest of them now because I'm curious about the different scents. The candle is lovely and the massage oil is slick and luxurious. It's everything that I hoped it would be and it didn't disappoint. I would highly suggest trying one of these candles!
No stickiness, leaves skin silky and moisturized, gorgeous candle for setting the mood
Older version didn't have a pour spout. Match box was different than pictured.

JimmyJane's Afterglow in Pink Lotus smells amazing: it's delicate and fresh. It might smell a little bit too feminine for a man, but I didn't get any complaints. The wax melts into a smooth, thick massage oil. It allowed me to provide a long massage without getting sticky or drying out. It was perfectly slippery and left a nice, light scent on my skin. I will definitely be purchasing more (many more) of these massage candles.
Smells great, softens skin, a little bit goes a long way.

The JimmyJane Afterglow in Bourbon is one of my favorite scents. The candle's sort of sweet, with just the right amount of spice. The oil is thick, and can get sticky if you use too much at once, or reapply too often, but is slick and slippery when you find the happy medium. The porcelain holder is adorable. Overall, it's a pretty amazing product.
unisex scent, not overpowering, feels nice on the skin, moisturizes nicely
a little thicker than Ember, occasionally gets a little sticky

We found this to be a fantastic addition to our foreplay. It enhanced the mood and offered a unique way to bring some beauty and sensuality to our lovemaking. It is a little bit pricey, but overall, I found it to be a worthwhile investment. If you're looking for a way to bring a bit more romance into your bedroom while not taking away from the passion, this is a great way to do that.
Wonderful smell, great packaging, nice oil.
Takes a while to heat up, a little expensive.

Wonderful smelling candle. Lots of product is tucked into this delightful product. This candle is worth it's weight in gold. This would make the perfect special occasion gift. The way it leaves your skin feeling is comparable to a day at the spa, only cheaper! It's a great way to start your next romantic evening with your partner or to pamper yourself after a bath. Not used as lubrication.
Wonderful smell. Leaves skin incredibly soft. Doesn't make a mess.
I wish it would come in a bigger candle

I love the feel of the Afterglow candle by JimmyJane. It left my skin very soft and got rid of a lot of the dry skin that I had. The only big issue that I had was with the scent. I didn't like how masculine the bourbon scent was. I would stay away from this if you are allergic to scents because it is very strongly scented.
Great smooth texture, Not at all greasy or waxy, No residue left on skin

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.
Yummy, long-lasting scent, silky and absorbs into skin a bit more than pure oil.
Scent may be too strong for those who prefer softer smells.

Jimmyjane's Afterglow Massage Candles: so famous they need their own body guards and so hyped that Beyonce's marketing team is jealous. But are they worth all the sensational reception and promotion? Yummy smelling and silky soft they are, but all that and a bucket of chicken? I think not.
Long lasting, great massage oil, pleasant scents, environmentally friendly
Do not burn evenly, no spout for pouring, light smell when lit

Jimmyjane Afterglow candles are luxurious, elegant, and gorgeous smelling, and just the type of candle to keep around for those sensual and relaxing moments.

If you like the feel of a wax massage but don't like the hassle of trying to pour the right amount, give the Afterglow a shot. It comes with a fantastic little brush that lets you control just how much wax goes on where. Available in a whole host of fantastic scents that linger lightly on the skin for hours and don't overpower a small room.
Warm wax feels lovely, Scents aren't overpowering, Leaves you feeling soft and silky
Slight greasy residue, Can still make a mess if you pour

"af·ter·glow /noun : a pleasant effect or feeling that lingers after something is done, experienced, or achieved." Perfect name for this massage oil because that's exactly what it gives! I love that the Afterglow allows me to have a nice, relaxing sensual massage and then enjoy the feel of the oil on my skin even the next day and that the scent lingers so that I am sent back to the memory of my massage each time I breathe it in.
Lovely oil, lasting softness, great scent, simplicity of candle holder, packaging
Bugs like it too?

I love the smell of this candle. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from a bourbon scented candle. I wouldn't say it smells like bourbon, exactly, but it's a sweet, smoky scent that I've grown to love. This candle melts beautifully into a slippery, luxurious massage oil that leaves no waxy residue on your skin.
Melts into a smooth, easily absorbed, high-slip oil with little waxy feel left on the skin.
Brush is on the small size, candle is small for the price.

This brought our sex life to a new height sensually. The massages felt great and the smell was wonderful. I highly recommend this product.

Brush can be hard to clean, and can harden into candle wax.

Jimmyjane Afterglow Candles set the standard in massage candles, with their fast melting, non greasy wax that leaves the skin soft and smooth and provides a long, full body massage. A little goes a long way and the applicator brush makes it easy to control both how much and where the wax is placed.
Long lasting, non greasy wax, long burn time, excellent applicator brush.
The scent was off, smelling nothing like currants and a lot like roses.

It comes with everything you need in the box, and exudes quality and thoughtfulness that ensures the mood will be set once you light the candle. This would also make a lovely gift, as it's discreet and so tasteful packaged.
