Review: Mr Candle Jnr*


Hello you lovely lot! So this week I received a delightful email from the folks at Mr Candle, who are a company that specialise in, surprisingly enough - candles! When browsing through blogs, along with our mutual love for Netflix, we also harbour a deep appreciation for candles, be they burning brightly for a much needed pamper session, or simply used as a subtle background accessory for blog photographs, we looooveeee our candles! 

I can't emphasise enough how much of a candle fiend I actually am, from collecting Yankee candles to peppering the place with tealights, my house is a bona fide fire hazard. So naturally when Mr Candle contacted me, I hopped, skipped and jumped at the chance! But ah, it gets better dear readers, because as you burn down your pretty soy candle, a dazzling ring ranged between £10-£500 is revealed! 


I was kindly sent a 'Strawberries and Fizz' scented candle from their Jnr collection, which is the smallest of the sizes in their range. As you can just about detect from the image above, each ring is lovingly concealed so that no damage occurs to it when you're ready to fish it out. A strict set of helpful instructions arrived with my candle directing you to burn it down for 2 and a half hours or more, melting the wax and thus making your hidden treasure more accessible!


I swear, never in my life have I stared so hard at a candle, WILLING it to burn itself out. I'll admit, I was actually half expecting the ring to resemble those metal rings you used to get out of gumball machines as a kid, so I was absolutely gobsmacked when I unearthed this beautiful sterling silver ring from its waxy residue. After twiddling away with my tweezers to get it out, it turns out that the ring was perfectly preserved in a plastic bag, completely untarnished. This would make a wonderful gift for a friend or family member (can you imagine them getting it appraised and it turns out to be worth £500? Yes, I'll have my Best Friend Ever award now, thank you). With a stunning selection of candles to choose from and the added excitement of a bit of bling inside, I will definitely be ordering from Mr Candle in the future!
