Modern Light Candles: Review and Giveaway (Ends 4/12) CLOSED

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 Posted by Dina N

I love yummy candles and was very excited to discover the Modern Light Candles Collection. They make 100% soy candles in 6 delicious scents. The candles are clean-burning and each lasts over 50 hours.

I received the Pandora's Box candle - beautifully packaged in a stylish black box, complete with a ribbon. The candle is made of 9 oz of pure soy wax in a glass jar. The fragrance is quite strong - I like the scent and keep the candle at my desk even when it's not burning. It's a blend of green tea, juniper, aloe, ginger and amber. Although I cannot detect every single one of these, the overall effect is very nice. I love burning a soy candle to create a subtle aroma around the house, especially at night, or to mask the smells of cooking that I want confined to the kitchen.

There are five other fragrances in the Modern Light Candles Collection and all of them sound very intriguing. The candles can be purchased at the company's website and cost $40 each. They would make a nice luxury gift or a pampering splurge for yourself.
