The Body Shop Candle in Jasmine and White Frangipani: Review

Jasmine and White Frangipani Scented CandleI love The Body Shop – it’s one of those shops I remember vividly from my childhood we had a quite big one that we would often visit and I would love looking through the little baskets full of one use items such as shower gels alongside flannels and hairbrushes. When we moved we didn’t have one as close for a couple of years until a small one opened in the town centre and by then it was makeup that I was more interested in. I have often brought fragrance oils from The Body Shop but I don’t ever remember having tried a Body Shop candle until I was sent this one.

The Body Shop – Jasmine and White Frangipani Scented Candle.

Made from Fair Trade Soya and containing essential oils, this candle is paraffin free and uses an unbleached cotton wick giving off a gorgeous floral scent that can be smelt around the room at all time.

I have to admit I never manage to burn candles without them tunnelling, I just haven’t got the knack of leaving it to clear over on the first use before blowing it out, I always seem to forget and by the time I check it’s always burnt for just a little too long. I will one day manage though, this candle didn’t tunnel any more than a normal candle for me – so I shall say in the right hands it would burn evenly.

The floral scent is fantastic, as I said before you don’t have to have this lit to smell this around the room and once lit you are in for a whole different experience as the scent and gentle glowing light offers a wonderful ambience to the room. I can’t find an approximate burning time on these candles but I’m guessing I will get around 15 hours from it.

If you are yet to try a Body Shop candle you really must get your hands on one, available instore and online they cost £10 each (you can grab this one on this link).

Have you tried The Body Shop candles, what do you think of them?

    I LOVE scented candles, but am no longer able to light mine (since I got a cat and she’s ridiculously clumsy and interested in everything shiny!)

    I live in Vasa (Finland) and in our Body Shop we do not have the candles… yet :) I will make sure to pick one up when and if we get them cause I love scented candles :) I have a body spritz from the Body Shop that I use almost everyday.. its Raspberry & Pomegranate scented and its the most wonderful scent ever :) I think I must have gone through at least six bottles of it since I first discovered it :)
    I almost panicked when they didn´t sell it over the winter 😀
    I hope we will get the candles too :)

      I’m a total candle fiend I brought 3 this week (not including tea lights), they are lovely I’m being drawn more towards soya candles of late they seem to have a lasting scent as well.

    I love candles, but nothing bums me out more than buying one that doesnt even smell when burning. Im so glad you shared this review. I think I’ll have to go get one from the Body Shop now!

      I have to totally agree with you – it’s just such a let down, I know we get used to scents but you should at least notice it as you walk in and out of rooms! I hope you like these ones if you get one :) xx

      Glad to hear I am not the only candle obsessed person around 😉 I hope you like these if you try them xx
