When I was younger I used to make candles. I loved all the smells and colors, and it was just plain fun. Over the years I have really learned to enjoy a good candle, there are way too many candle companies that just don't cut it. This company does more than just making a good smelling candle!
So what is so great about a Diamond Candle? Well the answer is in the name! Each Diamond Candle has a ring wrapped in foil hidden inside. Diamond Candles are made with high quality scents and all natural Soy Wax. They have so many wonderful scents that it is truly hard to choose just one. I received "Enchanted Forest" to review for you.
Enchanted Forest is a candle explained as: "Upon lighting this candle, you will enter the enchanted forest - whisked away into a magical land. Exhilarating scents will touch your face: Cinnamon, some nutty acorns, fragrance of the forest, and a light touch of wild fruit bearing trees along the way. While on this journey, you may see a some creative creatures along the way. One thing is certain about the enchanted forest: A surprise is hidden within." To me this candle smells like pumpkin spice mixed with a forest scent. I was very surprised at how well the scents mixed.
Since I used to make candles I know what will make my idea of a great candle. One of the first things I notice is the scent. I love Powerful candles! I will only buy a candle if I know that it will actually make my house smell. I also make sure to smell the candle for a while to make sure it's not a candle that will give me a headache as certain scents will give me the worst migraine ever! I like to be able to light a candle for about an hour and still be able to smell it after I blow it out. I like to make my candles last as long as possible because I love high quality candles which usually come with a pretty high quality price. Luckily for all of us Diamond Candles are a great price for their quality ($24.95).
Another thing I look at before I buy a candle is the wick. I like candles that have an extra thick wax-coated wick because I love to be able to see a big flame and make sure that all of the wax is being used. In my personal opinion a thicker wick helps the candle last longer especially if its coated. As you can see in the pictures below, Diamond Candles have a thick candle wick and a really nice flame.
The only issue I had with my candle was that it took a long time to burn. The worst part is having to sit there and wait for the candle to burn to get my ring out of it. I compared it to the saying "How many licks does it take to get to the center of the Tootsie Pop?" and how in the commercial the owl always just takes a bite. In this case it would be how long does it take to get to get the the ring in a Diamond Candle. Sadly I cannot answer this question because just like the owl that caved into biting the Tootsie Pop, I couldn't wait for this candle to burn and I ended up digging out my ring after about an hour of it burning.
My ring was way too big and not a color I would have chosen, but it was so much fun that I will definitely be buying more of these candles again very soon. I might even invest in some for Christmas presents. You can find this and many other awesome candles on their website here.
