I'm back with something I'm pretty excited to tell you about!
I was lucky enough to be contacted by the lovely people at Royal Essence to try out one of their beautiful soy wax candles.
Umm... Of course I wanted to!! I consider myself a bit of a candle connoisseur. AKA i own and burn a lot of them.
The thing that makes these candles different from all of the others on the market?
THEY HAVE JEWELLERY INSIDE THEM!!
With a number of different scents to choose from, there's something for everyone. From sweet desserts, to juicy fruits and earthy freshness. Such decisions!
My final choice of fragrance was based on the fact that I had never seen another candle that was scented with WHITE CHOCOLATE!!!
I mean come on, how could I resist??
The Royal Essence candles are Australian made (big plus!) and hand poured with 100% soy wax with a natural cotton wick.
Now the jewellery (rings, necklace or earrings) hidden inside these candles can be anything from a $10 piece of costume jewellery made from alloys (lead and nickel free) to sterling silver pretties to a 14K gold ring with a value of up to $2000!
Pretty frickin' impressive!
I was literally like a child looking out the window, waiting for the postman to deliver this package so I could light it up and get to that buried treasure!!
The white chocolate scent is to die for! I wouldn't say it smells like a block of Milky Bar, but it's definitely a chocolate/vanilla swirl that isn't sickly and leaves a beautiful scent around the home.
Now I don't know if i was just a lucky one, but I read that some people had to burn their candles for days before the little silver parcel inside was revealed. Total burn time for this monster is up to 80 hours!!
I'd say mine was burning for around 3-4 hours before the top of the silver foil was showing (It was only around 2 cms from the top) All it took was a pair of tweezers and a little wiggle and out came the gift!
I'm going to be 100% honest. I wasn't expecting much when it came to the gift inside. But when I unraveled that little silver parcel, I was SUPER chuffed with what I found!!
Hidden inside a little clear ziplock bag wrapped in tin foil was this absolutely beautiful silver ring!!
Enclosed was a little note that read: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE WON A $100-$500 JEWEL! POST THIS TAG WITH THE RING ON OUR FB FOR THE RRP"
I quickly snapped a pic and inboxed Royal Essence on Facebook to ask for the details in private, as I wanted the reveal to be left for the blog!
I couldn't believe it when I heard back, that this ring is 925 Stirling Silver with Swarovski elements with a RRP of $325!!!
I actually couldn't believe it... This is genuinely a ring that I will definitely wear and I was so shocked that I received it!
And even more exciting was the fact that it fits my chubby fingers!! haha
These would make absolutely amazing birthday presents for friends and family. I am really impressed with the quality of everything and will definitely be buying more of these in the future.
The cinnamon donut and strawberry cheesecake scents sound so good.
