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 ยฃ10 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I will make sure to pick one up when and if we get them cause I love scented candles ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I must have gone through at least six bottles of it since I first discovered it ๐Ÿ™‚
    I almost panicked when they didnยดt sell it over the winter ๐Ÿ˜€
    I hope we will get the candles too ๐Ÿ™‚

      I hope you get them soon! Honestly it was gorgeous and I do totally recommend it – I will definitely be getting more for myself.
      There scents are amazing aren’t they – they really seem to hit combinations right on the head to make them perfect.

      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!

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
