Diamond Candle Reveal!

20131206-123459.jpg

This is my third diamond candle and the second one from my birthday bundle gift :).

I was pleasantly surprised by the Sweety Pea scent! It lingers longer, scents a whole room and had a better ring! I am convinced that the colored waxes yield better fragrances now. This deep eggplant purple confirms my suspicions after burning through 2 white candles in the past. My ring also was the prettiest this time–my only wish is that it could have been a size 5 or even 6. Nope…of course, it comes in a size 9 (John fit it perfectly on his ring finger and he is a men’s size 9) just like the other 2 rings I’ve gotten before. Didn’t need the lack of markings to tell me that it’s a stainless steel ring with rhinestones; still cute though and suspenseful enough to wait 15 hrs of burn time for!

Diamond Candles!

20131106-141636.jpg

My obsession!

*So I wrote the longest post I’ve ever written on here and saved and saved and saved. I updated something on my phone and apparently nothing saved. That whole post is gone. Thanks, WordPress.

Basically I wanted to celebrate the fact that candles (technology used in the ancient times of the world) are still used and enjoyed today, which is amazing! The scented ones smell great and warm up rooms! Specifically, I find Diamond Candles intriguing because:

1) Burn forever at like 160hrs or something

2) Burn cleanly and evenly with it being made out of soy and such

3) Can re-use the air-tight glass jar for storing flour/sugar/brown sugar!

4) OMG the ring that comes inside!

Both rings I’ve gotten so far have been cheap and the sizes have ranged from 8-9. UUUUUGGGGH. Why must people have such¬†ginormous hands to have a size 9 be average? This is unacceptable. My ring size is a 4 and while I realize in America that is not standard, can there be at least size 5 rings in there? Ultimately, it’s not the value of the ring that is the biggest appeal to me. Heck, my engagement ring will trump anything I pull out of these candles. No, I just want these rings to be at least pretty and fashionable. I see pictures all the time of girls holding up peridot-like rings and citrine and pink quartz and I would love to have any of those fancy gems! But white? Real original, Diamond Candles…

At $30 a pop, they run super expensive for just candles. Something else I’m definitely not impressed with is their actual scent. It is too light and cannot even scent a whole room no matter how small. The selection nowadays is horrendous–all food smells and all crappy ones too. I’ve wanted the Rosewood and Honeydew ones FOREVER and they are perpetually out of stock on the website. But there’s a glut of nasty Candy Corn candles so go figure. The smell deciders of that company need to have a talk with me…

No-no smells for Kathy:

-Vanilla

-Cinnamon

-Frosting/Cream

-Cake

-Candy

-Pie

The Birthday Cake candle is an exception because it was a special early birthday present from my hubby and it was the perfect candle for the occasion. Plus, there’s also Sweety Pea to look forward to!
