I was looking for a massage candle to give the boyfriend as a stocking filler last Christmas when I came across this. Like another reviewer, I was wary of the large price tag. Many other candles were half the price, so what was so good about this one?
The other 2 glowing reviews and the candle scent won me over in the end. I liked the idea of a bourbon scent, which sounded much more sensual than the usual fruity smells you get and would also be a more masculine aroma for my fella.
Well, I was right to go for it. When it arrived it was beautifully presented and when the fella opened it up we found the candle was set in a beautiful white/frost glass pot with a small pouring lip on one corner. Not at all like the cheap plastic pots or tins you get for other candles. It also comes with a little brush for applying the melted wax over your lover's body. We tend to just pour and use our hands, but the soft brush has come in useful for other 'sense-teasing' activities.
After we got rid of the family at Christmas we tried it out. The scent is subtle at first; it doesn't overwhelm the room so much as tingle the senses. Once you pour it out and start massaging it in though... Wow! Does that gorgeous aroma hit you! It really is a very sexy scent that even the most manly of men will love.
As for how it feels, well, when do massages and oils not feel amazing? It's a silky soft wax and, combined with the sensual aroma, it feels utterly luxurious and is the perfect way to start the end of a romantic night with your other half.
This is definitely a must have massage candle. Whatever you do, don't let that price tag put you off! I promise you, it's worth it!
- That sexy, sensual aroma and the beautiful presentation.
- Bottom line
- Sexy, romantic, sensual, gorgeous and well worth the cost!

I bought this for my lovely mister as a gift, so really appreciated the beautiful, quality packaging; this is a product that really looks and feels like a luxurious indulgence.
We're both big fans of whisky, so had high hopes in terms of the scent, and we weren't disappointed. It's gorgeous. We let the candle burn for an hour before playing with the wax, by which time the scent had filled our bedroom and the wax was warm, soft and glistening like warm babyoil. It felt lovely on the skin, washed off easily, and didn't mark the sheets. When it cooled, it resolidified exactly like a normal candle.
A huge thumbs up from both of us.
- The sense of luxury.
- Bottom line
- Indulgent, sensual, and worth every penny.

Sensual, stylish and satisfying massage candle
Reviewed: 30 October 2010 by Mr Monster
I'll admit I was preparing myself for disappointment with this candle - surely it would struggle to justify the fairly hefty price tag?
When it arrived (promptly and efficiently, as always!) I resisted opening it there and then, just waved the box in front of Mrs M and told her to look forward to a massage at the weekend; needless to say, she has been bouncing with excitement all week!
When we finally opened the box together, we were very impressed with the product - a thick 2-inch frosted glass cube holds the candle, and the kit also contains a short, soft applicator brush and a small box of matches. Incredibly smart and stylish; everything you need to get going!
Following the instructions, we uncovered and lit the candle, leaving it 30 minutes to melt the whole top layer of oil. For a scented candle we were surprised how little aroma it lent to the room; and in fact it didn't melt as fully as we expected, although possibly in a warmer room both those things might have improved (Jimmyjane are based in sunny California, after all!)
While we were waiting, I began the massage using light, dry strokes and teasing with the brush. Let me just say: do not overlook the possibilities of this little tool as a toy in its own right! Mrs M found the soft, springy bristles (like a make-up brush) relaxing and an unexpected warm-up to the main event.
We pressed on, though, and I blew out the flame and dipped the brush in the now-liquid oil. Naturally, the first time I tested the oil for temperature on my wrist before touching Mrs M with it - they don't say to do this, only to test for allergic reactions, but I'd always advise caution when playing with heat! Beautifully warmed, it brushed onto Mrs M's skin, soft and silky, and that's when the Bourbon scent rolled over us, smoky, sultry, spicy, heavy, heady and exotic.
I have never experienced an oil that smells this good, or one that handles this well. I almost rushed the first application because I couldn't wait to get my fingers into the action - the warm oil is slick and easy to work, not sticky, and unlike some lighter lotions sits nicely on the skin for a long time. It also has a pleasantly waxy feel, allowing you to really stimulate the surface of the skin.
The massage was long and lingering, and we even managed to dip into the oil again before it solidified. Again, this was quicker in a cool room. The instructions suggest you can pour the oil instead of brushing it on, but we found this a little messy, and harder to get even coverage from the start.
The brush is easy to clean with warm water and shampoo, and the whole kit can be proudly displayed when not in use; it really looks well-designed and decorative.
The massage candle provided an intensely sensual experience for both of us, and the promise of more to come.
And yes, it was worth every penny!
- Everything: concept, design, shape, colour, feel, and that incredible scent!
- Can't think of a single bad thing to say about it.
- Bottom line
- Elegant, sensual, and incredibly erotic.

Unfortunately, our candle didn't come with a brush, so it would be a little hard for me to write a complete review, but we decided we liked the scent so much we brought a big face powder brush and used it as a substitution!
Inside the box is a square candle with a frosted plastic lid, emblazoned with 'Jimmyjane'. The beauty of this candle is that it looks so sweet and innocent that you can leave it out without suspicious. In fact, a friend of mine spotted it and commented on the scent. I was so happy with my purchase I told her where she could buy one!
The scent is gorgeous, spicy, woody smell. It's certainly more for men than women but if you don't mind smelling like a true gent then go for it!
At first, it's quite hard to work out how to pour the candle. That was until I noted the tiny lip on one corner. It gives the candle a slight asymmetric look but it's certainly not obscure. On lighting, the wax melts quite quickly and releases the gorgeous bourbon scent into the air. The wax is very soft (almost like Vaseline) and melts to form the massage oil. It doesn't melt that hot, but please check it before surprising your partner!
I have to be honest, because of its masculine scent this isn't my favourite, but that said the warm oil certainly makes a difference to a cold liquid from a bottle.
We might have to explore a more mutual scent, dark vanilla, perhaps. ;-)
- It looks innocent enough to leave out.
- The scent - quite masculine.
- Bottom line
- A lovely massage candle but perhaps not a unisex scent!
