Do you get a free gift with the wine candles in addition to the ring inside?
Jade: Hey David!
It’s always great to hear from one of the men who love to shop at Jackpot Candles. I know you’re out there! I love this question too because the answer is that you really get THREE gifts in one with our wine candles, especially if you love wine.
What Comes with Our Wine Glass Jewelry Ring Candles?
When you order either the Chardonnay Wine Glass Jewelry Ring Candle or the Pinot Noir Wine Glass Jewelry Ring Candle you get –
A ring surprise worth up to $5,000 hidden inside candle
A bonus gift: Wine glass earrings
A reusable wine glass when your candle is gone
That means that you get two pieces of jewelry and a wine glass that can be used for wine drinking, for storage, or whatever you like! I’ve listed a few quick tips on how to clean your wine glass.
Use warm, soapy water to remove waxy residue.
Use a hair dryer to heat the bottom and sides of the glass to melt and remove leftover wax.
Chill your wine glass in the freezer for several hours. Then you can chip remaining wax from the glass with a spoon.
Once the candle is gone, there will be two beautiful pieces of jewelry and a charming, simple wine glass that can accompany any set.
How come I can’t smell my candle after a while?
Jade: Hey there Gina,
This is a side-effect of scented candles that many don’t know about. If you’re a person who loves to buy the same candles scents over and over then this post is for you!
If you can’t smell your favorite Jackpot candle, there are two likely causes.
Olfactory fatigue (nose blindness)
If you’ve never heard of nose blindness or thought about putting a candle near your heater or air conditioner you aren’t the only one. Keep reading!
Olfactory Fatigue (nose blindness) occurs when you are immersed in the same scent for a long time. Essentially, your nose gets used to it and is temporarily unable to smell the scent because your nose has been desensitized.
Did you know that intake vents like the ones on your heater and air conditioner can pull candle scents out of the air? It’s true. If your candle is too close to things that filter your air, it could filter the scent out too. This can also happen with open windows.
Things to Try if You Can’t Smell Your Candle
Check your vents. Don’t burn your candle under the intake of your heater or an air conditioner or too close to an open window.
Leave the room for a while. Once you’re out for a while you’ll find that your nose will grow more sensitive to your candle scent again.
Rotate candle scents regularly! The best way to avoid nose blindness is to switch your candle scent regularly so that you don’t go blind to your favorite scent!
Thanks for your question, Gina!
