Flickering flame soon to go out

Who doesn’t love a good hot oil massage? I had wanted one of these candles before I joined Lovehoney, and when I saw that Lovehoney stocked them it went straight onto my wishlist! I bought it because it was being discontinued. I grabbed my chance and bought one before they were all gone.
Lelo are a luxurious brand of intimate products, so what do you expect from such a top brand. Great products, and this candle is a great product.
The packing is plain black, seek and classy. The candle is nestled in a black cardboard insert to protect the glass during shipping.
Opening the box I got a wonderful fresh sent even before I opened the lid. When I took out the foam that is placed on top of the candle I was hit with a fresh scent that took me back to childhood, camping out in forests with the fresh smell of trees. Anyway, the sent is hard to describe but I will say that it is truly lovely. You hear of certain scents being used as rejuvenating or sensual. This one is definitely energising and refreshing. The candle is made form soy, so it has a lower burning temp, so don’t be afraid of burning your self.
Down to use. I light the candle for a few minutes until the candle melted a bit into a pool of oil. I blew it out then let it cool for 30 seconds before pouring it onto the skin. After it was massaged in, my skin felt soft and not at all sticky or too oily, and my skin smelt great for a long time after using this product.
I asked myself why would I write a review for a product that is going to be discontinued. Then I thought well there are others in the Lelo range so i'll say how much I liked the quality and texture of the soy based candle, and that I will be getting the other two candles.
- A spoon would be handy.
- Bottom line
- Great, sad to see it go.

Brilliant quality, sensuous massage candle

Wow. You can instantly feel how good quality a product this is, truly living up to the Lelo reputation. The packaging is classy, stylish and simple, with the candle packaged securely with a small leaflet of instructions. Inside the jar, once the nicely detailed lid is removed, is a small foam disc covering the candle to be removed before use. The candle itself is lovely to look at and completely innocent; you could easily leave it on the side for suspicious eyes to roam over, none the wiser. The candleholder is made of thick glass, and the lid fits snugly.
Upon burning the candle, we didn't really smell it straight away. Forty minutes of anticipation later, we blew out the candle, waited the 30 seconds for it to cool and poured it on. The oil was very smooth, only very slightly oily but goes far enough once on the skin. You do need a fair amount of it on wintry-dry skin, but once on it lasts and lasts. The smell when it is being rubbed in is simply delicious. It left my skin feeling silky smooth and, rather soothing, I even rubbed it into a recent bikini wax!
The size of the candle is what set it apart for us. We have the Bijoux Petits massage candle as well - whilst this one is not quite so portable (the other is in a dinky tin, perfect for weekends away), its size means that we will get many, many uses out of it, which we definitely will. Even though it is slightly more pricey we think it is definitely worth the extra pennies. We love it!
- Smell, texture, appearance.
- Bottom line
- Luxurious quality product, worth the cash!

Great subtle scented massage candle
Reviewed: 28 June 2012 by acoupleofwankers
The packaging is beautiful, exactly what you would expect from a luxury sex toy brand like Lelo. It just oozes sophistication and sexiness, and and has the eco-credentials to go with it as it is completely recyclable. The candle itself comes in a very elegant black glass jar with a metal lid and a stylish neon green plastic handle. One thing to point out is that the lid just sits on top of the candle, it doesn't fasten in any way. So if you were planning on using this as a travel item you'd have to keep it in its original box or devise another way of packaging it.
The smell of the candle before you start to burn it is very subtle indeed, but pleasant. Once it is burning the aroma is augmented to a degree but it still remains very subtle; a feature we both actually quite like. There's nothing worse than having a really overpowering scent filling a room.
The wax melts to form an oil reasonably quickly. We left ours burning for about half an hour before use and had more than enough oil to play with. The instructions say to blow out the candle and to leave the oil for 30 seconds to cool before use. We followed the instructions. At this temperature it was heavenly when poured into Alex's hands first and then rubbed over my body, but I did find it a little hot for my liking when dripped directly onto my back. It wasn't hot enough to leave any marks, and I'm sure lots of people who are less of a wuss than me would find it a particularly arousing sensation. Also, it does make quite a mess if you try to pour it as unlike some other massage candles it doesn't have a spout to the jar. This does mean that you get wax running all down the side of the jar, so if you have furniture you don't want to get damaged I'd put at least a coaster or something down first.
My skin is dry and quite sensitive. It soaks up moisturiser like a dry sponge and comes out in a rash on an all too regular basis. But Lelo didn't let me down. The wax was very long lasting (some would argue too much so, but I loved it) which meant that Alex was able to give me a really long massage without having to apply more. There was absolutely no adverse reaction with my skin, and it was left feeling beautifully soft and supple the next day.
Overall I really enjoyed this Lelo massage candle and would recommend it for anyone who is after a long, subtly fragranced sensual massage. It has certainly left me wanting to try out more products like this in the future.
The wax in massage candles is soy-based, which has a lower melting temperature than normal paraffin wax candles (and FYI those still on whale blubber: even hotter. We put in the research miles here at A Couple of Wankers).
There are two main ways of using these candles. One is for sensation play, dripping hot wax onto a partner. The other is to use the molten wax as a warm massage oil (the only difference between a wax and an oil being the physical state they are in). We are much more interested in this second use.
I have used this product on Lucy, we have not tried it the other way round as I am very odd about the feeling of oily or sticky liquids on my skin. I hate the texture of virtually all moisturisers, oils and lubricants on my skin. I could just about tolerate the feeling of this on my hands for the duration of a massage, but felt the need to wash my hands thoroughly afterwards. But as I say, this is my hang-up, and shouldn't be held against the product at all.
The instructions suggest you let the candle burn for a while before use to let a sufficient volume of oil form. We found at least half an hour was necessary the first time we used this. For subsequent uses the time was reduced, as there was now a crater the oil could pool in, if that makes sense? You should then blow the flame out and wait 30 seconds for the oil to cool, before pouring it over your partner's back (or wherever else you want to massage). Or at least that is what the instructions suggest. Lucy found the oil a little too hot dripped directly onto her skin (merely uncomfortable, not burning hot). So we found a better method for us was for me to drip it into my hands, and then rub onto her back after a couple of seconds.
The oil works very well from the masseurs point of view. It is pretty viscous, so doesn't run where you don't want it. Also, it seems to be absorbed only very slowly so a little a goes a long way. I was very impressed with how long this remained liquid for; one of my worries was that it would rapidly solidify and just coat the area.
Overall, we were very impressed with this. It looks beautiful, is effective, and I would estimate that you would probably get 10-20 uses out of it. So, with the caveat of not having tried any of its competitors thus far, we would definitely recommend this Lelo massage candle.
- Subtle scent, lasted for a long time on skin, no skin reactions.
- No easy way to pour without making a mess.
- Bottom line
- Great candle, worth the money, especially if you don't like overpowering scents.
