Shunga massage candle by Shunga Erotic Art - review by shelberlynn

Sensually Yours!

This massage oil/candle can take you to your own personal paradise with its lovely strong--but not over-powering--fruity scent! Leaving your skin in better condition after the massage is a bonus, and the not-too-hot oil makes for a great, relaxing massage!
Smells great and feels great on the skin!
Could have been warmer!

useful review


The best use for this product is simple: a great, relaxing, sensual massage! I have sensitive skin, and this had no adverse reactions, so anyone could use this. Any occasion is a good one when a massage is involved, especially one that smells this nice! Basically, as long as you remember to blow out the wick before dripping the warm massage oil onto your lover, there's next to nothing to worry about.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture is nice and smooth--not too sticky, and not to thin. It felt slightly warm. I personally could have had it warmer, but for beginners in temperate-play, this is perfect! It does stay where dripped as long as your not rolling on the bed. Pouring or dripping onto your lover is made especially easy with the included spoon!
    • Creamy
    • Slick
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

I'm not particularly sure if this is edible, and to be honest, I wasn't about to go there with it. It smells almost edible, though. The not-too-strong fruity aroma reminds me of some tropical paradise where a man whose half naked (or woman) is giving you one hell of a rub down with a very happy ending!
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell


This product lasted a nice amount of time before starting to dry. It isn't as sticky as other massage oils while drying and it soaks into the skin, leaving nice, soft, supple skin. The smell fills the room all night and if you leave the candle burning at least twenty minutes, you should have more than enough wax for a good massage!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


This comes right in the tin containing the candle with the small spoon nestled inside. The packaging has instructions right on it, as well as the label--so probably not the best if you want to be discreet. As for travel, I'm sure it would be fine in a purse or suitcase since the lid stays on relatively tight.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense

Special Features

The product is warm when applied, but not too warm. In fact, I'd even prefer it to be warmer. However, some may not, so it's a wonderful temperature. Other then that, no real sensations. Although a great massage does give loads of sensations all on its own.
    • Warming

Personal comments

The smell is probably my favorite part of this product!


My lover and I lit the candle and kissed for a while, waiting for the oil to become usable. Once it was, my boyfriend poured some over my back with the small spoon and rubbed it in. At first, I was worried it might end up being too hot, but it wasn't at all. It felt amazing and relaxing. The oil rubbed in well and soaked in to leave my skin feeling soft and supple. The scent and warmth made the massage very romantic and sensual!
