[mood |impressedimpressed]

Someone sent me a 3/4th full bottle of DarkCandles.com's simmering oil; I've never tried their products before, so it was kind of a surprise.

The simmering oils come in 1oz bottles, with an eyedropper cap. They run about $4.99, which isn't too bad, but then I don't really know much about simmering oils to begin with.

The scent I received was "Lilith", part of their "Vampire Collection". The scent description on the site is: "Very carnal, feminine, and sexy. Based with succulent raspberry and a deep natural patchouli."

Normally I have to be wary of patchouli, but I was pleasantly surprised with this scent. I love raspberry, and it's not an over-powering raspberry. It mixes nicely with the patchoili, making this kind of sweet and sour scent.

I put maybe five or six half-full squeezes from the eyedropper into my tart burner (it's metal, with a candle underneath, so I figured it'd work) and it was just enough to cover the bottom of the metal pan. I've let it go for a little over an hour now and it's filled my condo completely.

The oil hasn't burned smoky at all (I'm just now noticing some, but it's burned down some) and it's an even distribution in the scent.

I might actually look into buying more, now that I've tried it!

Oh dear.

I ordered some random tarts and a burner from a few places and I'm waiting for them to get here... And now you're making me think my actual oil burner is very lonely and needs some of this oil... Amber Velvet sounds like it might be delicious. And Naughty or Nice.

Firstly, this is why one of my best friends made me this particular icon. ;)

Secondly, I find with my fear of fire and burning and such, somehow oil I didn't have that problem with. If I'm burning a candle, I'm over there every five seconds paranoid. Yeah, I know the oil can burn and smoke and if spilled really do damage but somehow it went easier for me.

If that made any sense, I'll be amazed.

I went and bought a bunch of stuff. Since moving out, I can actually fill my condo with incense or candles. It's nice.
