~I received a Diamond Candle for review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
October (otherwise known as Pumpkin season) brings with it chilly, dreary and cloudy days. For the past week and a half it has done nothing but drizzle here in Missouri, leaving behind this damp heaviness. Days like this can make anyone a little down, so it’s important to find ways to perk yourself up and see the quiet beauty in autumn. I’m pretty sure that is why everyone gets so crazed about pumpkins and exotically hot spiced drinks around this time of year, they symbolize warmth, home and the vivid colors of fall. The nice thing is, we can have all these little bits of happiness packaged in one beautiful home element that I’m sure we all love – Diamond Candles. Here is a sneak peek of one of their new Fall Scents, Pumpkin Chai!
Just in case you aren’t on the up-in-up on what (or who) Diamond Candles are, they are beautifully scented eco-friendly soy candles that are all natural. Their fragrances whisk you away to special happy places, but they can get pretty addictive to have around. Of course, one of the special things about them is that they come with a ring worth (in estimate) $10, $100 or $1000 or $5000. You soon learn that it isn’t so much the ring that really captures you with these candles. It is just how they make you feel. If you could roll up the essence of anticipation, excitement, warmth and dreaminess, it would be a Diamond Candle postmarked to your door. So, let me introduce you to mine.
The Pumpkin Chai candle features the scent of roasted pumpkin and warm chai spices, my favorite. It’s beautiful rich orange color sets the mood in any room, though I love placing these within a centerpiece on a table because it is always the gathering place in our home.
As with all their candles, there is a little gold spot that shows where the ring is located. These are always at the top because we are impatient people who cannot wait to see what ring is hiding in there!
These candles last quite a long time and the scents are always light and airy, unlike many sprays that are overbearing and heavy in rooms. I also like that they have a lid, so when the candle flame is out you can place the top on to keep them from getting dusty between use.
When you are ready to remove the ring, use tweezers and lay the gold foil on a paper towel. Since the wax is soy, it can be a little softer to deal with. Make sure you have something handy to clean your hands, but don’t worry! At least they will smell delightful afterward!
Let the foil cool and then unwrap your little present. Inside you’ll find a beautiful ring in a tiny plastic baggy to keep it from getting waxy. Now you can take a lovely photo and share it with everyone!
Something else that’s new and pretty exciting with Diamond Candles is the RingReveal! Inside each tiny ring gift is a special code. You enter it in on the RingReveal page and spin! 1 in 100 people win a $100 ring, 1 in 1000 people win a $1000 and 1 in 5000 win a… guess what it is! A $5000 ring. 🙂 This just started so I didn’t get a code to share, but the special thing is that you record your reaction and if you win one you can choose your exact style and size of ring you want! Yay! Check out these featured rings.
