I hadn't heard of My Jolie Candle before they contacted me asking if they could send me a gift. I had a look at their site and loved the concept so said yes please and totally forgot about it until a package arrived. I opened the box to be greeted by the most wonderfully thought out packaging to find not just a candle but various other treats including a personalised passport cover. How cool!
How it works is you choose the type of jewellery (ring/bracelet/necklace) and the scent of the candle. You find out what it contains by burning the candle and retrieving the foil package the jewellery is securely placed in. There are 100 different styles of silver jewellery all made with Swarovski Elements crystals. Not only that some candles contain real gold jewellery worth up to 5,000€. There is even a instagram hashtag to share your surprise. Such a cute concept.
I opened the candle and had a little sniff, I can confirm the rose candle smells amazing. I wanted to know what surprise necklace the candle was hiding so promptly lit it and waited. And I waited. I got a bit impatient so grabbed the husband's tweezers (there was no way I was going to use mine!) and had a dig around til I managed to get hold of the foil package and pull it out. I got a silver bow necklace with black crystals across the centre. I can also report after running them under the hot tap Gray's tweezers are totally fine. Haha. The candle is burning away on my sewing desk again making it all smell lovely and floral.
The best bit is My Jolie Candle have offered up a candle containing your choice of jewellery and scent to one reader of A Million Dresses. To enter all you need to do is leave a comment below letting me know whether you would prefer a ring, bracelet or necklace and your choice of scent along with your email address or Twitter handle. The giveaway runs until 7th November at 6pm. And if you get one of the real gold pieces of jewellery in yours, remember me ;)
