REVIEW: Airwick Multicolour Black Edition Candle
Airwick say: "Our sophisticated new Multicolour Candle Black Edition creates an elegant effect by softly shining through the glass patterned window, casting enchanting shadows and patterns around your room. As the candle burns, a heavenly combination of colours, illuminations and fragrance will spread throughout your home, to create an captivating atmosphere that will be enjoyed by both family and friends."
I was excited to receive this candle to review because I adore candles, but never really get around to lighting them! This one intrigued me with its multicoloured kaleidoscope-like design, which is unlike anything I've ever seen before in the big, bad (read: soft, soothing) world of candles.
Frangrantly-speaking, my candle is Purple Blackberry Fig, which is a subtle, pleasant aroma that thankfully didn't induce a headache, like some strong smells are known to give me. For me, the aroma actually became more noticeable after the candle was extinguished, leaving my lounge room smelling fresh and fruity. The other Airwick fragrances available in the Black Edition Multicolour Candle are 'Golden Winter Woods' and 'Crackling Fire & Cinnamon Spice'.
Now let's talk about the pretty! Once I lit the candle, it started glowing a bold green colour, followed by yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, dark blue and light blue (in that order!). Then the cycle starts again, and I actually found myself somewhat hypnotised by the pretty! Watching the colours slowly change also mellowed me, which is always welcome. Personally, I think these relaxing scented candles would make a great conversation-starter at a Dinner Party. Pity I never actually have Dinner Parties!
I looked at my walls, and couldn't see any shadows or patterns there from the candle shining through the glass window. I think this effect comes with a longer burn time, so I'm looking forward to checking that out, with continued use. Because the candle is housed in glass, it does get hot, and this is something to be mindful of, especially with children around. And of course, never leave a candle unattended, don't burn them for too long and never leave children alone with candles (d'uh! I know none of you would do that).
I'm loving the Airwick Multicolour Black Edition Candle; it's fun, colourful, pretty and has a subtle, gentle fragrance. The burn time is up to 30 hours, too, so there's plenty of time to enjoy the colourful light show!
