I love the aroma and atmosphere that candles offer. In my ideal situation, I would consistently have fresh flowers and a variety of candles giving life and warmth to my home. A couple months ago I wrote about the different types of candle waxes. Some candles are more eco-friendly than others, which opens up another discussion on an alternative to traditional candles.
My friend suggested I explore a wax candle line, Enjoy Lighting, that features 3 small LED lights in place of a flame. I was initially hesitant because of my impression of electric candles. However, after having the candle in my home and doing a little research on their candles, I definitely changed my opinion. The LED lights replicate the flickr of a real flame. Some of the candles can be set to dual brightness modes and are available with a multi-hour timer.
The real test is having a party and seeing if anyone notices that the candles are electric. I am pretty certain that with the wax exterior, melted edge and the distinct fragrance, I will have many friends convinced.
