I’ve written a lot about Sol de Janeiro and the amazing fragrance of their Bum Bum Cream which continues to not be the easiest product to buy in the UK.
Things have improved somewhat in 2019 and you can now buy a selected range of Sol de Janeiro products on the High Street at Space NK (assuming you have a local store). But, you still can’t buy direct from Sol de Janeiro as they don’t ship to the UK … (but the website says it is coming soon !!). However I am still managing to gradually expand my arsenal of products – Shower cream, Hand cream, Body polish – I’ve got them.
Since its launch I’ve been desperate to get my hands on limited edition Cheirosa ’62 candle, and things were proving a bit difficult but success(!) it does feature in the special edition set – ‘Carnaval Shimmer’
The set, which is beautifully packaged comprises of:
- A 2.2oz candle – approx 7cm high, 5cm diameter
- The cutest palm size tube of Bum Bum Cream which is small (50ml) but perfectly formed and will be excellent for travel (pot is 5cm high, 5.5cm diameter)
I’ve written about Bum Bum Cream before and I’ve even found a very good dupe at Aldi, but this post is about the candle as it was the reason for my purchase.
I knew I wasn’t buying a full size candle, as that would retail at around £50. My candle is 2.2oz size as opposed to the full size weight of 8oz
It burns really well, the flame doesn’t spit and as this is a soy candle I know that it will burn longer and is cleaner than a paraffin one.
The fragrance is the same as the Bum Bum Cream but more subtle. Personally I would like it a tad more pungent, maybe you would get that with the full size candle?
I noticed the scent more when I came back into the room and the next day when the candle was not burning the fragrance was still evident ?. If I can, I intend to buy for/wish for the full size candle as I know I shall miss this one once it’s gone.
I purchased Carnaval Shimmer set at Feel Unique – shop HERE
? ?? Do you love the scent of Bum Bum cream too? If so you will be as excited as me to hear the rumour that a haircare range might be coming!!
