I must admit I have always had a serious addiction to candles. In the time that we refer to now as B.C. (before child) there was hardly a flat surface in my home that didn’t have a candle on it, but once my daughter got to toddler age the candles became something that had to be kept far out of reach and definitely not for ambience on a coffee table.
I then came across flameless wax candles from an Australian company called Enjoy Lighting Australia and these seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Some of the earlier candles available on the market in Australia had an almost ‘flashing’ flame effect but these candles were made of real wax and used a triple LED light source to make the flicker as realistic as possible, at last there was something on the market that would give the effect of a real candle burning without the obvious safety issues that come with using the real thing.
The candles from Enjoy Lighting also came equipped with a set and forget timer, a range of colours and on some sets a remote control, we were so impressed that we decided to buy these for our online store and haven’t looked back. I realise this may look like a shameless plug for a product that we stock and no doubt we are impressed with these but I would encourage anyone who hasn’t tried these to get one and see for yourself, the ambience is amazing and the effect so realistic it will save you a fortune in buying candles and the safety aspect alone is worthwhile with so many house fires started from candles.
Celebrity designer Shaynna Blaze star of Selling Houses Australia and The Block was so impressed with the product that she put her name to her own range of Enjoy Lighting candles in Classic Ivory. The candles also just won best product at the Melbourne 2013 Reed Gift Fair.
If you try one thing different in your home this year, make it one of these candles, trust me you wont regret it!
