Happy Ending?

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!
Smell, Quality

useful review
I love the smell of this candle. If nothing else, I'd get it just for the smell. Some people say it's too strong or too much, but to me it's wonderful. If you're a fan of vanilla smells, you'll like this. It doesn't smell cheap and it's definitely not cheap. It has kept it's scent really well so far. I got this as a Christmas present last year, and it is now October. For the most part, I don't bother putting anything over it because when it's unlit it still lightly scents the air.

It can feel a bit waxy if you use too much in one place or at one time. For this reason I prefer not to use it for back massages. It tends to pool and then solidify again as it cools. Now, most people will find that a bit of a turn off, but I prefer regular oils for back stuff. Some people, I'm sure, will love this for back massages and massaging large areas. This is just a personal thing. I've found that it's much better for massaging feet, especially with the moisturizing qualities of the oil. In fact, I'm so fond of this that on days when I need to feel a little extra pampered, I'll go ahead and use it on myself after my shower.

It's important to remember that, like any other candle, you need to trim the wick and light the candle for at least 30-60 minutes, so that it keeps burning correctly. It's also a good idea to make sure the wick is standing up and there isn't any sort of wind in the room that could cause the flame to heat one side unevenly or your candle will burn oddly. You should always blow out the candle before dispensing the oil and remember, this stuff will be pretty warm. It has a pour spout, but I prefer to dip my fingers in the pool of warm oil to make sure I don't get too much.

This is not a lubricant and you really shouldn't try to use it that way, especially internally. You shouldn't eat it either. It smells good, but I can't imagine it would taste the same way. Keep this away from your condoms, since oils tend to react badly with condoms. On warm days, this candle will get a little soft and maybe even sweat a little. I'd suggest keeping it somewhere cool if you can, or at least up-right.

Also, because this is an open flame, keep it away from drapes, curtains, or anything else that might catch fire.
The first time I used this I used way too much. I let the candle burn for a good hour before blowing it out and pouring a nice puddle of oil into my palm. It had mostly cooled by the time I got that far. I'd rather just get more oil half way through than deal with the half solidified mess I made.
