Certain scents bring back the feelings and emotions of associated with certain times of the year. If you smell cinnamon, spices, gingerbread, pumpkin, or pine – there is no doubt that you’re mind is going to instantly head towards the holiday season. When I opened the package I received from Diamond Candles with a preview of one of their new scents for the fall, I was instantly hit with familiar warm scents of the holidays.
I didn’t open the package to reveal the scent right away, but when I did I was surprised to see Gingerbread Latte. The combination of scents made me think of baked goods, and I wouldn’t have initially guessed it was a latte scented candle. But as soon as I lit it, the house was filled with spiced latte scents.
Due to our cats, I don’t like to burn candles too often. Godiva walks with her tail strait up in the air, and Jack… well, he hasn’t quite gotten the kitten spaz out of him yet. But when I do, I enjoy having a pleasant scent that will fill up the whole house. One of the things I’ve always liked about Diamond Candles when I’ve ordered them in the past, the scent is strong and can help fill a room even without being lit. But it is strong and intense when lit, and in our house for safety reasons that’s on the kitchen counter where the cats wont ever get to it.
Besides the lovely scent options, Diamond Candles have the wonderful ring surprise inside. Just look for the gold circle on the side of your handle and your ring will be at that spot. Once your candle melts down to that point (or it gets close enough you dig it out with a spoon), you will be greeted with a gold foil packet with your ring nestled safely inside. Don’t worry, the ring is wrapped in a plastic baggie then in the foil s you wont be cleaning any wax out of the settings. But inside is completely a surprise. It might be a ring worth $10, $100, $1000 or $5000. Just look for makers marks or metal stamping on the inside to find out how much yours is worth.
All rings will be in whole sizes, so if you find a valuable ring, and it doesn’t fit you can have it re-sized. There are also groups online where you can trade with other Diamond Candles lovers to get a ring that you love and fit, if it’s just not your style.
When I first unwrapped my ring from my candle I instantly said “oooh” and shared a picture with a friend. A purple set stone surrounded by white clear stones on a silver band. There aren’t any stamps inside so my guess is it’s not one of the higher end rings, but it is stunning to look at! The surprise inside is definitely something I always have loved about Diamond Candles.
