I’ve had a Munio Candela candle from MyPure before and I really loved it so thought I’d get another one. I went for the candle poured in a brown jar in the scent “Inspiration”. There was nothing on the website to tell me what “Inspiration” would smell like so it was really just a random choice! I like the little linen bag the candle comes in which makes it a bit different from other candles but unfortunately that’s the only thing I like. The brown jar is quite ugly really and I seriously can’t stand the scent. I couldn’t even try to describe the smell – it’s like nothing I’ve ever smelt before! It’s a shame about the scent as I could have got over the ugly jar if I liked the smell. This candle has put me off buying any more Munio Candela candles from MyPure as £14 is a lot to spend on a candle if you are not sure you will like the smell. I think it would be a really good idea for MyPure to describe the scents so that you can get a better idea of what candle you will like!
When I noticed that MyPure sold candles I just had to try one. The Munio Candela candles are soy fragranced with 100% essential oils. I went for the Relaxation candle which is poured in a paint pot. Soy candles are don’t produce the soot that normal candles give off so are much better for you and they also burn for 50% longer.
When I ordered the candle, I was expecting it to have maybe a lavender scent but when it arrived, to be honest, I was slightly put off by the smell (don’t ask me what it smells of – I can’t work it out!). I was also surprised by the wick which is oddly shaped and made from wood.
Even though I wasn’t overly keen on the smell, I wasn’t about to waste £23 worth of candle, so I lit it anyway. I seriously can’t work out what it smells like but it seems to smell entirely different once it’s lit! I really love this candle and I think it’s worth spending a bit more on soy candles. This one looks really unique as well and should burn for around 50 hours.
