Go Floral

Go floral because men love flowers like women. Don’t think that floral scents are only for women. When you are buying a gift, go for tuberose or lilac.


The shape and size depend on the price. So the price will be the deciding factor when it comes to choosing the size of the candle. However, with price ranges from £7.00 – £32.00, everyone can afford a candle with good size.

Consider the space:

Consider the space when you are going to buy a candle gift for him. Consider where the recipient would place the scented candle in his home. If it will be placed in the living room, then a big candle would be ideal. If it is likely to be burned in the bedroom, choose the medium size candle.

Burn time:

In additions to consider the space, consider its burn time and use. If a candle is likely to burn every evening, you will need a candle with long burning time like soy candle. If it is used correctly, this will last many weeks. If used while reading booking or during a soak in the hot bath, a glass jar scented candle with 70 hours burn time will be enough. The burn time is affected by the quantity of additive and composition of wax in it. The very short burn time of the candle is considered a bad sign.

Choose what he loves:

When you are buying a gift, think about your friend, husband or family member who will use the candle. Choose the one what he loves. If he will use it to at a side of his bathtub, then choose for the still fragrance that gives him a touch of spa ambience to any lavatory. If you think he will light the candle while watching his favourite TV show during a cosy night, then blush scent would add to the warm atmosphere. If alfresco dining is the most common thing there, then the French pear scented candle will add a fresh air of summer living to any dinner.


To that last point, try a variety of different fragrances. If you are finding the right scented candle for him, the essential thing to do is an experiment. It is really fun and gives you an idea of what are best suits to your needs.

The primary consideration should be which candle to buy. With over ten different scented candles and wax melts on offer at Jessica Jane, you have come to the right place. All you need to choose what is the best suit for your requirements.
