There is one thing I love as far as home decor goes that as a mama of 2 babies well under the age of 2 I have been missing terribly.... The warm glow and intoxicating aroma of some beautiful, flickering candles. In my opinion, nothing promotes intimacy and good conversation more than a room full of candles. I have a ton of them in many different styles and scents. A personal favorite was of the jarred variety....But all of these wonderful candles are sitting on a shelf, collecting dust. Sure, I have a few in higher up places like on the fireplace mantle and on top of dressers, but I have not been able to light any candles on end tables or the coffee table in almost a year! Why? Because of the safety hazard they present to my toddler.
Pretty much as soon as she started "toddling" and exploring anything she could touch, the candles went away. I couldn't leave them out, because my Sophie-Monster is super-curious and as quick and destructive as the Tazmanian Devil, and leaves a wake of destruction in her path to prove it! She also has absolutely NO FEAR. After all, this IS the same child that broke a toy and swallowed a button battery. On Mother's Day, of all days. Enough said. So obviously, Sophie and candles DO NOT MIX.
I was very excited to get a chance to try a flameless candle experience by Enjoy Lighting. I have used other flameless candles before, like the one put out by a famous, not to be mentioned fabric refresher spray company. I found them to be unreliable, and the scent faded from the paper "covers" very rapidly. Not to mention, they are flimsy! Luckily, this is NOT the type of product Enjoy Lighting offers. Not by a long shot! Why are Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles different?
First of all, these candles look so real, you'll try to blow it out. Seriously. After all, Enjoy Lighting is home of the first and most lifelike flameless candle. With Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles, you can enjoy the warm atmosphere and ambiance of candlelight without the unwanted fire risks or replacement costs.
With styles, colors and fragrances to match any decor, flameless candles make the perfect decorative addition to any room. What's our secret? Our real wax candles have 3LEDs precisely placed and programmed to create a flickering effect that casts dancing shadows just like a real flame...These candles are even made from real wax, not some generic looking plastic!
Just look at the candles I received for review. I received 2 of the Orange Distressed Pillars – Pumpkin Spice Fragrance. Random Fact: The distinct scent of Pumpkin has been proven to be an aphrodisiac for men! That and lavender! Strange but true....So needless to say, these beauties will be taking up permanent residence in my boudoir....With hectic schedules and 2 babies and a preteen, I'll use all the help I can get in the romance department!

I really love these flameless candles. They are incredibly realistic in appearance and feel, and they smell absolutely wonderful! I have these "burning" in my room right now, and the room has a light, yet distinct scent of freshly baked pumpkin pie! The smell is noticeable but not over-powering. The flicker feature of the LED bulbs is also a very nice touch. In darkness, these candles cast shadows and play tricks of light on the walls, just like a conventional candle would! I honestly believe that unless you told someone these were not "real" candles, no one would be able to tell without examining them closely. Now that, my friends, is pretty darn impressive if you ask me!
Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles come in many varieties, textures, and scents. There are classic white unscented candles, perfect for everyday. There are also distressed candles in a variety of scents and colors, as well as mottled textured candles, holiday candles, and even great accessories. There is something to suit every style in this wonderful collection!
I plan to use these candles when Dan and I have our celebratory Birthday Dinner. (Provided we can convince our dear, dear friends and God-Parents of our babies to watch the kids for an evening!) Dan's birthday is only 10 days after mine, so we like to have one day to celebrate both of our birthdays together. This year, I'd love to keep it low key. Maybe head out for a few drinks at a nice establishment we discovered on our anniversary, followed up by a romantic dinner (or dessert) by candlelight! Doesn't that sound romantic? I sure think so!
These are truly a wonderful way to enjoy the ambiance and cozy feel that candles can provide...You know, the kind of atmosphere that relaxes you after a long day? The way you felt BEFORE children took over? You can get that feeling back with these safe, flameless candles. Until someone is hungry or has a bad dream, at least! Hey, as a mom, I'll take whatever relaxation that I can. And with Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles, I can do so without worrying that my house will burn down or that my daughter might scorch her precious little fingers! Hey, who said being a parent had to mean sacrificing style?
