Advantages: Pretty presentation, nice scent
Disadvantages: Not quite strong enough
I'm always on the lookout for pretty candles to put around my home. So when I saw these and realised that they not only look pretty, but smell amazing, I had to snap them up.
The RRP for these candles is usually £2.50-£3, however, I have never actually paid this much for one as I always find them on offer somewhere. I recently came across them at 10p each in B&Q!!
Upon purchasing, the candle comes in a small box which covers 3/4 of the candle itself. This packaging has the product description, ingredients etc on the back of it.
Once you remove the cardboard packaging, you are left with a glass 'bowl', which is decorated in a red and gold plastic cover. The decoration on the glass can be peeled off, however, when the candle is lit, the decoration gives off a red glow making it look very 'homey'.
The candle is inside the jar and cannot be removed.
The scent of the candle is 'spiced apple'. It is difficult to describe the smell, I think it smells a little like cinnamon. However, you may have a different opinion on this. It is a very Christmas-y smell and really does make me think of winter. Despite this, I burn this scent all year round.
The box states that the candle 'eliminates odours and leaves a fresh scent'. As much as I love the scent, I do not think that it is strong enough and doesn't seem to fill my room as well as I'd hoped.
The box states that you should receive 30 hours of burning time with these candles. I burn mine for 2-3 hours per night and they last two weeks, which works out at just over 30 hours.
At first, they are very easy to light as the wick is at the top of the glass. But once you start to burn the candle lower into the jar, it gets more difficult and a proper candle lighter is recommended (I'm not sure what these are called but they are basically long lighters).
Overall, I do really love these candles, they have a lovely scent and the glass bowl that they are presented in is very pretty. However, the strength of the scent puts me off them.
Despite this, I will continue to use them as I tend to use the glasses as tea light holder afterwards to allow myself the warm, red glow that they give of when lit.
