Sensual Seduction

My overall experience of the His seduction candle by Illume is that it is a great choice for a candle. If you aren’t fond of spicier scents I would suggest the hers. These candles make great stress relievers or romantic aides.
Strong scent that isn't too overpowering, beautiful packaging and design
No ingredients listed anywhere, may be too oily for some

extremely useful review
The Illume line of candles is an elegant collection of pleasantly scented mood and massage candles. These can work great for aromatherapy to relieve stress, meditate, or accompany a romantic session. They are perfect for newlyweds or romantic endeavors. I personally enjoy mine to aide my candle lit bubble bath.

I have the His- Seduction candle. It is a good choice for those who live high stress lifestyles. I have a hard time with stress management myself, and this is one of the things that really help me to relax after a long day. It is made to be paired with the Hers- Affection candle which has vanilla scent. I can only imagine how wonderful the two must smell together! Pair them together for an exceptional gift.

My candle came in a classy grey and slate box with gold accents. The candle itself weighs in at 9.2 ounces and comes in a thick tempered glass which can be used for many other things once the wax is gone (which will take a long time!). The word his is inscribed on the front of the glass in a crisp signature font. When lit, this candle glows a shade of amber.

I opted for the His candle because the hers candle comes in a sweet Vanilla scent. I am not a fan of Vanilla. The his candle is more a spicy blend of woodsy accents and cologne. When I first lit it, I was surprised at the strong cologne smell. It reminds me of Old Spice. After a couple of days I got used to the smell, though. I enjoy it now that it has mellowed out a little bit. Illume can be used wherever you desire. I have moved mine all throughout the house. Its home is my Buddha statue in the bathroom.. I can’t say how long it burns for yet- I have only had it for a few days. I will let you know in the follow up review how it does though. It burns evenly and the wax melts fairly quick; but the wick burns slow and stays lit.

Now Illume does have a particularly high flame so be careful when using it. You always want to make sure that you never leave any candle unattended to prevent fires. Unfortunately there are no ingredients on the box or the candle itself. This makes it impossible to know if you may have any allergic reactions.

The overview of this candle states that the wax base is food grade Paraffin, which is edible. Although you could eat this, I wouldn’t recommend it because it tastes like cologne. It also feels like slick chap-stick on your lips. The wax melts into a thick oil like texture which rubs into the skin easily. This is my first sensual candle, so I am guessing it can be used for massage. This is not its intended use, however, so you may want to take caution if you plan on using it for that. I have rubbed it into my arms, hands and legs. It feels excellent and pours easily. However it does leave my skin feeling slightly oily after use. I would recommend washing up after a massage with this.
I enjoy this candle mainly for stress relief purposes. It can also set the mood for a romantic evening. Whether you need a stress free night or a sultry candle lit dinner, this candle is the perfect tool. Newlyweds and couples relighting that flame would really appreciate the spicy, seductive aromas it creates. The long burning wick can help provide hours of use. Although not intended for massage, the daring might find it a pleasant use of this candle as well.
Follow-up commentary
This candle is still going strong, and it still smells wonderful! I have accumulated a good 30 or so hours out of this, and it is a little less than half way full still. The wick burns clean, it smells terrific, and the glass can be washed and re used. I definitely recommend these candles!

    I'm not a fan of vanilla scented stuff, either, but the His candle sounds like a nice scent. Thanks for the great review.

    Odd, my "Hers" candle has such a weak flame that after burning for maybe 30 minutes, the amount of wax will kill the flame and it will go out. /cry

    I really want to try the two together, to see if they create some sort of harmonic scent. I'm glad you like yours!
  • LikeSunshineDust
    Thanks for the review... The price seems a little steep so I dunno if I'll go for it though.
  • cherryredhead88
    @avalein- i want to try them both together as well. It is strange that yours does that; I will leave mine lit for a good 3 hours and I still have to put it out myself!
  • Heartthrob
    A candle that smells like men's cologne? Genius!
  • Selective Sensualist
    Very nice review! A bit steep in price for me to spend on a candle though . . . Perhaps someday.
  • Jobthingy
    bleh. I don't like vanilla either. Good choice. But I bet the two would compliment each other really well.
  • freshbananas
    Thanks much, I am huge candle shopper.
