I’m not the only one right? You start reading a novel and it’s starts to get really good, and you do what I do, right? Turn to the end just to confirm what you believe will be the end. You do that right? You’re impatient like I am, right?
When my Prize Candle came last week, I could see at the front the tiniest sliver of my prize (or at least the prize holder). I lit the wick and sang in my head “burn baby, burn.”
The fragrance of my Prize Candle is Adriatic Fig. Honestly, I probably never would’ve chosen this scent simply for the fact that I never in a million years would’ve had a clue what it smelled like. Now, I’m bad at explaining how something smells, but to me it was, well it still is, a mix of musky and a light “floral” (maybe on that 2nd one). It’s a very easy fragrance. It didn’t overwhelm the house at all.
Back to that darn, stubborn prize. Prize Candle offers candles that contain a prize that’s valued at $10-$5,000! Can you imagine typing in your candle number and getting something over $10? Yes, I was imagining. That’s what makes it exciting and sheer insanity all at the same time.
This is where it comes to relate to reading a novel that I just HAVE to read the end of so I can enjoy the rest, even though the end has been ruined. Day 1 of burning, which was only a couple of hours, I was really good. No desire to “help” it along. Then I saw a couple of people talking about their prizes and how they had to dig into their candle because they just couldn’t wait.
I thought I had more patience than that. A couple of days went by and I started burning the candle again. It burned for about a half an hour and I could see more of the plastic bubble holding my prize. Then, yes, then I got impatient. Nothing wrong with helping it along. A little scraping here, a bit of digging there and voila, out came my little prize.
Only problem? It was late at night and I had to take photos of it for my post. lol Guess what that meant, waiting until the next day since the lighting in this house is so terrible!
Next day came and I pulled out my silver ring. I wonder if there’s a general size ring the company goes with because there’s no way they can know the size of the candle burner. My ring was pretty with a blue gem. I went to the site and typed in my ring number. It was valued at $10. Not $5,000, but it was fun wondering what it could be worth!
Now I can burn the rest of my Prize Candle and enjoy the fragrance. I think it would make a cute gift and who knows, that could be worth a LOT!

Have you ever found a prize in a candle before?
