Scented candles can completely change the aura of your home. Their smells evoke specific moods that you can use to distinguish rooms, or even change the mood of a room in an instant. With the right candle, you can turn an ordinary bedroom into a romantic log cabin or a hut on the beach. The possibilities are endless.
Tokyo Milk candles allow you to transform your home into a romantic and ethereal space for special occasions, or quality alone time. They adopt scents from the most popular Tokyo Milk perfumes, so if you’re already a fan, you’ll no doubt want to try Tokyo Milk candles. If you aren’t a fan yet, this is a great entry point!
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SCENT
When choosing the right scent for your space, there are several common categories of scent to consider: Tranquil, romantic, refreshing, and hygienic. Each category offers a distinct mood that can be appropriate for specific settings and scenarios. Some are more subtle than others too, so be aware of what mood you’ll be creating with each scent.
Tranquil: Scented candles that evoke a feeling of tranquility or calmness usually derive their smell from eucalyptus oils, sandalwood, chamomile, and lavender. These scents are great for when you’re spending some “me-time,” relaxing with a warm bath, sipping tea while reading a book, or whatever other relaxing activities you prefer.
Romantic: In order to evoke a romantic mood, candles commonly include the scents of violet, lilac, rose, champagne, peony, or jasmine. Romantic scents are usually intended for intimate one-on-one time between partners, but they can also suit cosy dinners with family.
Refreshing: For more of a refreshing “pick me up,” a candle may emit the scents of peppermint, cinnamon, citrus, ginger, or rosemary. Refreshing scents are perfect for social spaces in your home, such as a living room or entertainment area.
Hygienic: Hygienic scents are typically associated with cotton, fig, white geranium, cassis, and juniper berry. Candles that contain these scents will make whatever area they’re in smell clean, so you might consider adding them to your bedroom or closet.
There are many more candle scents out there to discover. These are just several kinds commonly found in people’s homes. Tokyo Milk candles belong to the romantic category.
TOKYO MILK DEAD SEXY CANDLES
Tokyo Milk candles are based on the brand’s popular Dead Sexy perfume. Based on the name, you’ve hopefully assumed their place in the romantic category of candles. Tokyo Milk offers only three variations of the Dead Sexy scented candles, but upon closer inspection of their fragrances, one will find their scents to be quite nuanced.
First, there’s the Original Dead Sexy Ceramic with Cloche, and then there are the Fearless and Mystic variations. The Original is characterized by deep vanilla, exotic wood, white orchid, and ebony, giving it a classically intimate and grounded mood. The Dead Sexy Fearless candle combines bergamot, black plum, jasmine, and white musk fragrances to create an overall darker and bolder smell than the original. Finally, the Mystic variation of Tokyo Milk’s Dead Sexy candles introduces the smells of hinoki, cedar leaf, fresh balsam, and palo santo for a serene and introspective experience. We recommend you light the Mystic candle while you spend some quality alone time.
Each of Tokyo Milk’s Dead Sexy candles are designed to evoke feelings of intimacy, whether you’re with a partner or by yourself, enjoying some peace and quiet. Creator Margot Elena herself describes their scents as romantic and ethereal, and each one lives up to that description in their own ways.
If you’re feeling creative, try combining the Original, Fearless, and Mystic candles for even more unique smells!
WHAT TYPE OF WAX DOES TOKYO MILK USE?
Tokyo Milk candles are made from an all natural blend of soy and coconut wax, making them safer and more sustainable than other candles that use paraffin wax or beeswax.
Paraffin wax leaves behind more soot than soy and coconut wax, and beeswax drips less, preventing that classic melted candle look that we enjoy so much. Still, some people prefer paraffin wax candles for their strong scents, and beeswax candles for their clean appearance. It simply depends on personal preference, and those who prefer soy and coconut wax will really like Tokyo Milk candles.
Soy and coconut wax boasts many benefits for Tokyo Milk candles. In addition to being all natural and non-toxic, the soy and coconut wax burns longer and cleaner than other waxes. It’s also renewable, biodegradable, and carbon neutral.
HOW LONG DO TOKYO MILK CANDLES LAST?
Candles typically last about 5-7 hours per ounce of wax. By this estimate, the 12 ounce Tokyo Milk candles will last about 60-84 hours. However, there are other factors that affect a candle’s burn time.
A candle’s burn time is primarily affected by its size and quality. That is the diameter and height of the wax, as well as it’s wax type and required upkeep. Tokyo Milk candles have a diameter of 4.75 inches and a height of 4 inches. They’re made from soy and coconut wax that tends to burn cleanly, so you won’t have to wipe away soot or dripping wax too often. The wax pool that forms at the base of the wick is also smaller on Tokyo Milk candles. Furthermore, thanks to the thickness of Tokyo Milk candles, you won’t need to worry about the wax becoming lumpy or misshapen. This can occur with thinner soy wax or coconut wax candles.
For larger candles, multiple wicks are often used to enhance their appearance and smells. Tokyo Milk candles, however, are intended for more intimate experiences wherein you are closer to the candle and you don’t want the light to be overly bright. As such, they have a single wick, which provides a simple and elegant look and smell that perfectly compliments the fragrances used in Tokyo Milk candles.
If you enjoy the scent of a particular candle, you’ll likely want to know how long it lasts. After all, its burn time is directly proportional to your enjoyment time. Rest assured, Tokyo Milk candles will last you a long time, and require minimal upkeep.
