      A Vanilla Cream candle to freshen your home and fill it with a sweetly delicious fragrance

      Everybody wants to have a home that smells fresh and clean and there are plenty of products on the market that offer you this service ranging from plugins to sprays. One of the more relaxing and calming ways to freshen your home is by lighting a fragranced candle.

      As part of its Light & Refresh collection, Febreze offers the deliciously sweet Vanilla Cream candle. It mixes together tones of vanilla with light yet refreshing hints of fruit and a dash of cinnamon sprinkled into the mix.
      The aroma is evident but not overpowering. It is subtle enough to lightly freshen the room, without offending anyone who may not like the smell of Vanilla as I know Vanilla can be a 'Marmite' type of smell.

      The secret to the fragrance is hidden deep with the core of the candle. Febreze's products are not ones to cover up or mask bad odours. It actually removes them and this candle is no different.

      Hidden with the core of the candle are powerful odour eliminators are they are released into the room as the candle burns. So not only will your room be enveloped in an aroma of Vanilla in its purest form but any bad smells with be kicked into touch as well. Result! The candle has a fairly long life and is expected to last around 30 hours.

      If you are a fan of this candle, then there are other scents for you to try. There is Morning Dew which is a fresh outdoor scent and Cotton Fresh that smells like clean washing. There is also an Apple Spice variety which reminds me of Christmas. Of all of the fragrances though, Vanilla Cream is my favourite.

      The candle itself comes in a clear thick glass mini vase and is a creamy colour. Once the candle has burnt away, the glass can be reused for tea lights so there's no need to throw it away, hence you are helping the environment. It costs around £6 but can be often be found on offer, particularly in Supermarkets so stock up if you manage to catch it on buy one, get one free.

      All in all, if you like Vanilla, then you'll love this. It is sweet, yet subtle and makes your home feel cosier and refreshed. The only negative that I have it that because the candle is in clear glass, occasionally the inside can get a brown burn make in areas where the flame has touched it. However this can easily be wiped away, when the candle is not burning of course!

      And obviously you should never leave this unattended, especially if you have pets or small children. If the price is too high for you then keep checking in Asdas as they often cut the price.

      Febreze Vanilla Cream Candle

      Description: Candle / Eliminate odours and refreshens the smell of your room.


      If anyone has read any of my earlier reviews, (thank you very much, I really appreciate all reads, rates and comments) they are likely to know that I am a big fan of scented candles. I must admit that my absolute favourites are from the Yankee Candle company because they are great but unfortunately, they are a little expensive so I like to try cheaper alternatives if I see them.

      I hadn't seen these before but recently spotted them on special offer for just £2 each in a local supermarket so decided to give them a try. Febreze say the following about these candles;

      "The flame gives off a warm, welcoming glow while the innovative core releases odor neutralizers as it burns. Febreze Candles can burn for up to 30 hours and the refreshing scent lingers long after you blow it out. Try Febreze Candles in the kitchen to eliminate cooking smells and in the living room for other everyday odors, like odors from pets"

      The candle sits in a clear glass jar and is a soft cream colour. The design is quite simple and elegant so looks good wherever you place it in your home. Remember to stay safe and never leave a burning candle unattended.

      The candle has a sweet vanilla scent which is nice but not as strong as I would have liked. It was more of a subtle aroma than I had expected but it was pleasant, I didn't notice it immediately when I walked into the room though and it quickly faded once the candle was extinguished.

      The 30 hours of burning time seemed a little bit of an exaggeration because once the candle got to around three quarters down, the centre and wick had burned away so I was slightly disappointed. It may be fairer to say 25 hours. I also felt that once the candle had been lit a couple of times, it lost most of its fragrance which was a shame.

      Overall, these candles were quite cheap so I didn't expect them to be fab, but I did feel that they could have been better. The fragrance was nice but too subtle for me and didn't last long enough - back to Yankee Candles I think!

      A Wicked Scented Candle, I'm Going To Buy More!

      I didn't know Febreze made scented candles but when I was in Home Bargains the other week I saw they had loads of these Vanilla Cream Candles for £1.49 so I treated myself to a couple because I've gone mad on scented candles.

      On the box it says that these candles have got a burn time of up to 30 hours, I reckon this will probably be about right because I've used mine for about 10 hours now and there is still a load of burnable wax in the pretty glass jar that the candle comes in. The wick was a bit short when I first brought it and I had a bit of trouble lighting it the first time but that sorted itself out during the first couple of hours burning so not much of a problem.

      It takes a few minutes for the smell to get into the air when you first light the candle but then I was surprised at how well it freshened as well as scented the room. This was obvious because my little sister had a proper disgusting dirty nappy just before I lit the candle, the smell of HER filled the whole of the downstairs of our house but about 10 mins after me lighting this candle there was nothing to remind me of the yukky brown mess I'd just cleaned up off her bum! lol

      The vanilla smell is gorgeous, it's nowhere near as strong as some Yankee Candles I've been using but it still gets into the air in a way that you can always smell it and the smell doesn't fade as you get used to it. It's quite a sweet smell but not too over the top like some vanilla smells are, it's deffo not a sickly smell and I think it's one of the nicest smells off a scented candle.

      The candle so far is burning evenly and I have no doubts that I'll probably get close to the promised 30 hours of burning time. I've got a feeling it will get more awkward to light the further down the wax goes because the glass pot is quite thin, this won't be a problem for me but if you've got massive hands then you might have problems.

        I love this.

        PACKAGING

        These candles come in very luxerious medium size carboard box's with a plastic gap inbetween the lovely design on them, which shows the candle and a little part is without plastic at the top so you can smell it.

        On the front you will see it tells you that they eliminate odours. On the back of the box it tells you to keep the box and safety instructions until the candle is finished. It also tells you to never leave a burning candle unattended, burn the candle out of reach off children and pets and to always leave 10cm between burning candles.

        It tells you not to burn them on or near anything that could catch fire. There is also a caution that tells you that you need to follow the following instructions because failure to do so can result in fire hazard, personal injury or broken glass.

        * Do not place candles in a draught.
        * Trim wick to about 1cm before lighting.
        * Do not move a burning candle.
        * Never use liquid to extinguish.
        * Do not use if jar is chipped or cracked.
        * Keep wax pool free from foreign objects eg. Matches, paper, other debris.
        * Stop use when less than 1cm of wax remains.

        WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?

        People suffering from perfume sensitify should be cautious when using this product. Air freshners do not replace good hygiene practices. The febreze website is www..febreze.com.

        SCENT DESCRIPTION

        On the side of each febreze candle you will see a description the vanilla one is as follows:The delicious scent of vanilla cream combines light scents of fruit topped with rich vanilla and a dusting of cinnamon.

        MORE INFORMATION

        On the other side you will see " The Febreze Freshness you love in an odour eliminating scented candle" written in white easy to see writing. Then a messege saying, " The unique Febreze Core contains special odour eliminators that are continuously released into the air as the candle burns to neutralize odours"

        Then you will see a diagram and picture of a similar candle to the one that you get, showing you where the scented wax, odour eliminating core and the wick is.

        FIRST IMPRESSIONS

        When i opened the lid i was met by the delightful smell of vanilla, it was really lovely. Then when i lifted out the candle i noticed its in quite a big thick, and heavy to lift glass. The glass looks very nice and is a very nice shape too. The candle is a lovely light, yellow colour and the closer to the bottom of it you look, you will see that it starts to get a slightly darker yellow. It looks lovely where ever you decide to place it.


        MY OPINION

        I think this is absolutley gorgeous the smell and the appearance of it make it a really nice addition for your house and it would even be nice as a gift to someone. The box it comes in is so cute and really nicely designed. This last for 30 hours, it is slightly expensive but i think its worth every penny.

        It is available in other scents too and if they are anywhere as nice as the vanilla one then they will be lovely too. The design on the front left side of the box is really nice and the whole thing just screams quality. I love when there are lit in the house because they fill the room with there scent and its so pleasent too walk into a room with a really nice smell.

        I find it quite relaxing too and it really does eliminate odours and freshen the air like it says it will. The box is easily opened and the instructions on the back tell you everything that you need to know. The slit at the top of the plastic is handy if you are in a shop because you can smell the different scents and decide which suits you.

        I heard one of the scents is apple spice and i think i will get that one too as it sounds really nice, i doubt anyone who buys this will be disappointed, it does everything it says that it will. They usually cost £5.99 but they can often be found in shops for cheaper prices. It just takes you to look around and see who has the best offer because one week one place has a offer and the next it doesnt and another one does.

          A lovely product that will enhance your home

          I have a very smelly house. Okay that's not the greatest claim anyone has ever made but unfortunately it's true. In between two wet dogs, one tomcat who things he has to spray anything that does not move (don't stand still for too long), a husband who has feet that would ward off any burglar and a compost heap next to the backdoor it's a battle of the senses unless it's controlled.

          I love Febreze candles and this one is one of my favourites. Unlike spray air fresheners I find the candle range lasts longer, smells more natural and doesn't make you sneeze. Each candle will burn for approximately 30 hours which does not sound long but if you are burning one for a couple of hours each day that equates to about a fortnight's nicely smelling house.

          The vanilla cream candle smells divine. It's a very warming smell of vanilla with a hint of cinnamon so especially nice at Christmas times or as a bedroom accessory for romantic nights in. Left to burn for a while all those nasty smells are eliminated and you have the added bonus of having candlelight to enhance your home.

          An excellent product that I use continuously.

            Eliminate Bad Smells

            Febreze Vanilla Cream Candle

            I recently thought I would do the charitable thing and decided to take on a lodger for a couple of weeks. This lodger was the cutest, cuddliest friendliest little thing you could possibly imagine. Unfortunately in addition he was an extremely hairy mongrel with the name Blue. His poor owner was having a hip replacement operation so I decided that I would take charge of her pet. In fact that's not right Blue actually took charge of me!!! Having a very rats tails coat particularly when it rained and trust me it never stops doing this in Glasgow he became the pongiest little doggy I have ever had the misfortune of sharing a house with. (only joking it was actually a rather nice experience which my son loved). Anyway to get to the point I spent a considerable length of time in my local Morrisons looking for suitable deodorising sprays to try and hide Blues rather embarrassing odour problem and to hopefully make my house smell a little bit more appealing. Amongst the products I ended up buying to combat this problem I purchased a Febreze light and refresh vanilla cream candle. Owing to its promise of being able to eliminate odours and freshen the air.

            I have always been a fan of vanilla smells and this was one of the main reasons that I chose this particular product. It looked slightly bigger than some of the similar type items on the shelf. Furthermore the packaging was pretty and I have always been a bit of a sucker for nicely presented things. I have also bought previous items from the Febreze range so I was confident that what I was buying would be a quality item.

            The candle itself comes in a square outer cardboard container. It is peach and white in colour. The packaging states that the item is the vanilla cream version of the product and that it lasts up to 30 hours. This was ideal for me as the plan was to burn the candle for a couple of hours in the evening to get rid of the lingering smells of wet dog. The rear of the packaging states that the candle combines light scents of fruit topped with rich vanilla and cinnamon, which will remind you of savoury vanilla in its purest form!!!!! The actual candle itself comes in a rather attractive glass which is slightly curved and which is refreshingly heavy. The candle is an attractive vanilla shade (this is the larger portion of the candle and contains the scented wax, with a cream coloured centre. (This apparently is the odour eliminating core.) Then obviously the wick.

            I would suggest reading the back of this product before making a purchase as this item is not suitable for everyone. There is a warning which advises that those with perfume allergies should use this product with caution. It also states that air fresheners do not replace good hygiene practices. (we thought that we had quite a hygienic house well until the dog started licking the water out of the toilet and dripping it all over my downstairs carpet that is!!!! In addition there are a series of pictures on the packaging which tells you not to leave the candle unattended, not to burn too close too curtains, don't leave next to cards, ensure that the wick is trimmed and not longer than 1cm before lighting the product. Never handle the glass when the product is lit and don't pour water on top of it. All in all pretty straight forward. One that I didn't observe was not to burn in the presence of moving animals. Oops sorry Blue boy!!!! It states that failing to follow instructions could result in fire hazard, personnel injury or broken glass. Anyway that's the product specifications out of the way. Now to the test does it actually work.

            I trimmed the wick and lit the candle perhaps to eagerly. Not much scent was apparent for about the first half an hour. After which time I did become aware of a faint fragrance of vanilla. This scent became stronger and stronger and eventually the perfume filled my entire house. It was extremely pleasant for about the first hour or so. After which time I felt that it became very over-powering and rather sickly and did start to make my nose and eyes tingle a little bit. Gladly though the smell of wet dog did disappear which was a blessing. I then had to decide which I would prefer the smell of sickly vanilla or pongy pooch. I have to say no contest I opted for the candle. The problem with this item was that when you blow it out it fills the room entirely with smoke so the fragrance disappears and you smell stale smoke. The next time I used it however I combated this problem by blowing it out outside in the garden. Slightly inconvenient but better than a smoke filled room. All in all I was quite pleased with the product and it did eliminate odours. The next morning I noticed a rather pleasant subtle fragrance of vanilla round my house.

            Would I recommend this product. Yes I would however I would only burn it for an hour or so as it does tend to overpower somewhat. Blow it out outside to eliminate the smoke-filled room syndrome. Remember to trim the wick prior to each use otherwise the flame is a bit wild. For more information on this product and others in the febreze range contact.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              good genuine smell

              Having three slightly whiffy cats (well, to be honest, it's really just one of them who has 'personal freshness' issues but I try not to be discriminatory!)...I have tried various remedies for restoring the house to that 'Estate Agent Ready' freshness.

              Of course, I am not actually selling my house now (it's just too depressing in the current climate) but, were you to be reckless enough to throw yourself to the sharks, I could thoroughly recommend these vanilla scented candles from Febreze.

              I always thought the idea of the Febreze spray for 'covering up'niffy odours was slightly repulsive and their adverts are hardly aspirational. I would always rather open a window than pollute my house with a cocktail of chemicals but as it has been sub zero temperatures, I thought I might give the scented candle option a go.

              Now, I should point out that, as a bloke, I am not normally given to lighting natty little candles, (especially chocolate ones!) but this Febreze candle (apart from being on special offer at £3.98 in Sainsbury's - normal price £5.99), is chunky and comes in a reasonably butch glass container!

              The description on the side of the box says that 'it combines light scents of fruit topped with rich vanilla and a dusting of cinnamon, reminding you of savoury vanilla in its purest form'.

              All I know it that there is something about this particular vanilla scent which is intoxicating - maybe it's that warm, custardy, comforting ... that, alls-well-with-the-world feeling (even if only for the duration of the candle - which claims is 'up to 30 hours' on the box!)... but I'm hooked.

              These candles certainly claim to be odour eliminating and I must admit I couldn't detect Tiddles' aroma for quite some time!

              Although they come with all sorts of peculiar diagrammatic warnings on the box (which in itself is like deciphering some kind of code) - one of the diagrams seems to suggest you shouldn't sit in a rocking chair while it is alight but perhaps I just don't get it!

              These candles come in other 'flavours' - Morning Dew, Cotton Fresh and there was a festive Apple Spice one at Christmas too - but I haven't tried those yet.

              Summary: Butch candle that doesn't get on my wick.

                Fragrance candle

                Febreze vanilla candle

                With the festive season well and truly upon us, and people in and out of the house expecting feeding and watering, we were suffering more than our fair share of smells which are not normally there- mainly cooking!
                On the recommendatioon of a friend, I decided to try this one out, so that it could be burning whilst people were here, and leave us with a festive glow.
                PRODUCT AND PACKAGING
                The candle comes in a box with all instructions and information clearly written on the sides and on the back of the box. There is a diagram on the side of the box showing exactly how it works, with the wick in the centre of the candle as expected, then an odour eliminating core, and then the scented wax. This suggests that it is no ordinary candle!

                I open the box, and take out the candle which is white/cream in colour and sits inside a glass which is tumbler shaped. The candle itself completely fills the glass and promises me up to 30 hours of air freshening. Because I do like the smell of vanilla, this one is vanilla, although there are others on offer, including; Meadows and rain; Linen and sky; Fresh Evergreen and Snow (could be one to try at this time if the year!).
                It's easy to use because like all candles, all it needs is to be lit and left to do its job. Thankfully, the wick is a substantial one, and the candle lights easily and continues to burn without having to have extra help which some other candles need. It also doesn't go all misshapen because it is neatly contained inside the tumbler.

                WARNINGS...
                As with most products there are some warnings:
                * If you suffer from perfume sensitivity, be cautious when using the product
                * Follow the instructions carefully, although as far as I can tell this is quite confusing because the instructions are shown as a series of illustrations with no writing so they are open to interpretation which is always dangerous.

                PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...

                I got mine from Morrisons and it cost £3.99, which seems to be the "going rate" although it can be bought at most supermarkets.

                The website, www.febreze.com has lots of information about the different candles.

                VERDICT...


                The candle does actually not only eliminate odours but leaves a really pleasant and not overpowering scent in whichever room you have the candle burning. I find that if we burn the candle for a couple of hours after everyone has left the room smells really fresh for quite a long time.
                The candle is easy to use, good value when i consider the cost of some scented candles, and lasts a long time. The way we used it, our first candle lasted almost two weeks, and we are now on to the second one.
                I think this is a far more pleasant way to remove any food odours than using sprays and would recommend the candle.

                Thanks for reading and all good wishes for the festive season.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  I can light this anytime!

                  Its cold, and rainy, the dog has just been outside, and comes in smelling like a wet chicken! Panic!! I have my boss and his wife coming for dineer, and the last impression I want to leave is of a messy housewife, living on a compost heap!

                  But never fear....my Febreze Vanilla Cream Candle saves the day better than Superman on steroids!

                  Im one of those girls who can easily be bribed with a lovely smell, and add to that the soft glow of candle ligt, and I'm putty in your hands.

                  I bought this candle for two reasons. One, because I have used the Febreze range before, and felt it really does make a difference to the smell of your home, and especially fabric items, and two, because I absolutely love the smell of vanilla, and as I walked down the aisle in Tesco, this candle smelled so beautifully and strong, I just had to buy it.

                  At £5.99, it is probably on the bit more expensive side for a candle, but bear in mind the candle also comes in a nice glass container that you could always re-use after, and it makes it more worthwhile.

                  It is part of a range that also includes Morning Dew, Cotton Fresh and just perfect for the Christmas season, Apple Spice.

                  The vanilla cream candle is a lovely creamy beiege colour, and as I said comes in a see-through glass holder, with a nice thick bottom, so it wont burn your furniture if you put it down on Grandma's sideboard.

                  The smell is just heavenly. Vanilla always reminds me of exotic holidays, and the vanilla smell of this candle is especially rich and divine. For me the real test of a candle is whether the smell of the candle is strong enough to fill the room once it is lit. This candle did just that in my opinion. I felt it needed at least 45 minutes or so for the smell to completely spread through the room and eliminate all those not so pleasant odours. The smell also lingered for a good few hours after I put the candle out.

                  The candle supposedly works on the same princilpe as the Febreze fabric spray, as it contains a core with the special Febreze odour eliminators, and as the candle burns, these are continously released into the air.

                  It promises that it should be able to burn for at least 30 hours, but so far I have not been able to proof that, as I never leave it on for more than a couple of hours, otherwise I feel the smell also gets too strong. The only problem I see is that the wick gets more difficult to light as the candle burns lower, but that is always a problem with any candle in a deeper container, and not exclusivly to this product.

                  Well, my dinner is over, my reputation intact, and I ma now going to retire to my bath, foam it up, light my candle, and imagine I'm somewhere much nicer.....See you!
