Emily & Tony Aromatherapy Massage Candle – Coco

Sometimes I find myself in a bit of a rut with finding new things to write about, so when I was offered the opportunity to try out this  Emily & Tony Aromatherapy Massage Candle in Coco this past month, I jumped at the chance. I mean who doesn’t love scented candles in their life? (Or the chance to coerce their boyfriend in to a back massage!?!)

Emily & Tony’s website describes this candle as such:

“This luxurious soft glowing massage candle sets the mood for an exhilarating sensual experience. Scented in a tantalizing Coco fragrance, which opens with top notes of coconut, with a sexy hint of cedar in the heart of the fragrance. The base is warmed by a delicious vanilla note. This formula is designed to moisturize and nourish the skin for the ultimate sensory experience. Burns up to 50 hours.”

Once again, who wouldn’t LOVE all of the above? I was so excited to receive mine to try!

When the candle arrived at my doorstep I was floored by the packaging. Honestly, photos don’t give this gorgeous bauble the justice it deserves. If you didn’t already know, I LOVE the color grey. I just always have. The opaque grey hue of the glass on this candle is so pretty, I know I will keep it around long after the candle is all burned out.

The next thing I immediately noticed by first impression was the scent. The moment I opened the box, I was greeted with the most rich and aromatic coconut fragrance that immediately filled the room with a lovely freshness and warmth. It doesn’t smell too sweet or overpowering, the perfect balance of softness and richness I usually go for in a home fragrance.

Lucky for me, this candle arrived right around Valentine’s Day, so convincing the boyfriend I absolutely needed a back massage to try it out wasn’t too difficult 🙂

Once burning, the candle’s scent was amplified and filled the room with the gorgeous Coco scent. After just a short few minutes, there was enough melted wax in the candle to test out and I was pleasantly surprised by the texture.

Emily & Tony’s site describe the melted wax’s benefits:

“Beeswax, an intense moisturizer, helps heal damaged skin. Soybean Oil smooths and moisturizes while helping to brighten and even skin tone. Coconut Oil, and excellent hydrator, helps to preserve the skin’s natural moisture.”

I would definitely agree with the claims on this one, the texture of the melted wax is velvety soft and hydrating, without unpleasant stickiness. The infused oils allow the product to glide on skin easily, but the beeswax keeps it from being messy and runny like other, less complex, novelty massage oil candles available.

Once massaged in to the skin, the melted wax made my skin feel supple and moisturized, a feeling that lasted well in to the next day of wear. I only wish I would have done a heavy exfoliation prior to to trying out the product, I think the oils would have given my skin even more hydration benefits if I would have had that foresight. Regardless, this product feels like an absolute dream on the skin.

I have thoroughly enjoyed testing out the product and can honestly say I will be repurchasing this item when the candle has completely burned out. If you’re interested in checking out one of Emily & Tony Aromatherapy Massage Candle’s for yourself, they are available in three scents Coco, Creme de Vanille & Fougere. All three fragrances sound divine and I’m looking forward to checking out the additional scents in the future.

All things considered, the Emily & Tony Aromatherapy Massage Candle in Coco is an absolute STRUT. The scent is heavenly, the texture left my skin hydrated and glowing and the packaging is a lovely addition to my bedside nightstand.
