Glowing with Delight

I definitely enjoyed this JimmyJane product on the whole even though I was not a fan of this particular fragrance. I will purchase another fragrance as it feels like heaven on my skin!
Good heat point, silky feeling on skin
Strong smokey aroma

extremely useful review


The Afterglow Massage Candle by JimmyJane is a candle that not only is made to set the mood, but to add some fun into your foreplay. I have always wanted to try playing with wax. This is a product that can be used for ambiance and those more daring to drip wax on their lover. This is also a product one could use on themselves for softer/silkier skin.

The design of the product is simple and plain enough to also burn in general living areas should you purchase and discover you're not thrilled with the experience, but love the fragrance.

This was my first time experimenting with hot wax and as thus I see this as a good product for beginners as well as seasoned users. I have ridiculously sensitive skin, and experienced no negative reactions in my use. This leads me to express that it should not cause negative reactions as far as sensitivity is concerned. One should be cautious when using product to ensure wax has cooled enough before pouring on skin.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The design of the canister in which the candle is placed has a spout which makes the product super easy to use and pour right from the container. There was some dribbling from the spout upon pouring though so look for that!

I let the wax cool a bit before pouring it on although it was not overly hot to touch. My husband is away right now so I was able to get a feel for the product before I completely scare him!

I poured a little on my hand and rubbed it into my hand and arm. It is slick and (obviously) oily. I was surprised it was so smooth - It melts down rather nicely. It immediately ran down to the sides of my hand- so you might want to make sure you apply small amounts at a time or it could get messy.

Taste / Aroma

I got the bourbon scented candle and my very first reaction opening the box was that it is a very faint scent. Kind of a musky sweet - if that makes sense. Not like you're walking into a bar, but sweeter and caramel-esque. I honestly wasn't sure how I would like the fragrance when I made the purchase, but as a southern girl, was surprised and comforted by them smell. As burned the candle I was expecting the ragrance to possibly stengthen and come out a little more, but could barely smell it from a few feet away. Upon application the smell is overl smokey and not so sweet.

I did not taste the product.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


This was the first time use of the product, but I will definitely follow up with how long it lasts! It is a good size candle and I envision it lasting for a good while. JimmyJane advertises 32 hour burn time. Upon pouring the wax, there is some dribbles, so perhaps have a coaster down.

There is no need to wash the oil off since it absorbs rather nicely into your skin. I wasn't a fan of the fragrance for everyday, but I think my husband will like it. It is more of a "manly" fragrance.

I thoroughly enjoyed that this is thy type of product I could light while I'm getting ready for a shower, and then by the time I get out have a silky oil to rub into my skin as it did leave it softer and silkier.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural


The candle comes in a small box with a sticker sealing the top of the container, locking in the fragrance. There is a little instruction booklet that comes with the candle- READ THIS FIRST! It explains how to melt the candle properly. The box is pretty plain and doesn't scream SEXY CANDLE but is square and could easily be wrapped for gifting. Other than that there isn't much to know, I suppose.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly
    • Would make a nice gift

Special Features

You are pouring hot liquid onto yourself or your partner and tantalizing the senses with warmth. I think this would be fabulous for a leg or back massage during foreplay.
    • Warming


It took about 20 minutes for my skin to not be oily or greasy after rubbing in the oil. The smoky aspect of the fragrance seemed to get stronger on my skin as time went on and I was not a fan at all.

    I want to try some of the Jimmyjane candles and this one especially intrigued me.
    Wish all of them came in sample sizes and sold individually.

    Great review

    Shellz- Thanks, and I definitely wish we could get individul sample sizes instead of the group of them! Wouldn't that be so great!

    Excellent review! One more way to ensure that the way that gets dripped is cooler than it initially is upon melting is to vary the distance between the skin and the candle for dripping. For example, if you drip the way from two feet in the air, it will cool down a little bit in the air as it falls. Don't know if that helps you, but I'm glad you enjoyed the candle!

    I love the Bourbon scent of these candles! It smells like My Man and that's good.

    Good review. I find that burning these (expensive) candles for at least 30-45 minutes, until you have a good, even wax/oil melting on top prevents welling and ruining the candle. These are too pretty, sexy and expensive to waste.

    Enjoy. You may want to get the Sampler of 6 different scents. We did and it got us hooked on these beautiful candles. I love when the aroma lingers in our bed after a massage for either or both of us.

    I keep looking at these candles and want to try them. I'm not sure which scent to choose. Thanks for the review. I have the bourbon scent on my wish list, but I think I'll choose cucumber water as my first candle to experiment with.
