Sometimes ‘hidden surprise’ concepts can feel a bit gimmicky and more of a marketing idea than a basis for a good product – but French design brand Popup Paris have fallen just the right side of cool with their scented Diamond Candles that may reveal a diamond when the wax burns!
One in every 50 candles has a diamond inside – and are available in two sizes with either the possibility of a 0.15 carat diamond or a 0.25 carat diamond. With a brightly coloured diamond design on the front of each candle – the candle itself is just as covetable as the possibility of what could be inside.
At €20 for a small candle and €45 for a large, you really dont feel as though you are paying for the privilege of the luxury concept and the candle itself is pretty beautiful on its own and would make a pretty sweet Valentines treat!
The brand also have a section on their site where winners post pictures of their big reveals – fun!
