Air Wick Black Edition Colour Change Candle
I don't often feature candles on this blog but since these are available primarily in supermarkets they definitely count as a Grocery Gem! I was given two of these Air Wick Black Edition Mulled Wine & Cinnamon Apple candles as a gift and I genuinely can't believe how brilliant they are. Granted I'm a complete sucker for anything with the words "colour changing" but my forays into colour changing candles have always been disappointing, until now.
The candle comes in a black glass jar which is a decent size. The front of the jar has a white design when the candle is unlit, but once the candle is lit this becomes a "window" into the rainbow colour changing effect. I can't say I have ever bought Air Wick products before and I usually don't like the whole "this looks like a tasteful ornament" idea they promote. However this candle genuinely looks good on display.
The smell, Mulled Wine & Cinnamon Apple, is very nice too. I would ignore the words "mulled wine", it just smells of cinnamon and apple, which pretty much sums up mulling spices anyway. It doesn't smell too strong, I have synthetic overpowering fragrances, it just leaves a subtle sweet fragrance.
I just love the colour changing effect, it goes through so many more colours then my first photo suggests. There are the main yellow, orange, red, blue, green and purple, but then all the colours inbetween too like turquoise. If you don't like this design/scent then there are other versions available too such as the Golden Winter Woods, which has more of a geometric design, and for chocolate lovers there is a Cocoa Truffle which has a plain white design.
They are all available in Asda for £3.00 each and have a burn time of up to 30 hours. A big thank you to Michael who gave me these candles, I will definitely be buying some more!
Have you tried these colour changing candles before?
