We love chocolate. We love candles. It was a no-brainer, then, that we would fall head over noses in love with the chocolate-inspired luxury candles from Midunu. Their collection has launched with Adwoa, reminiscent of five West African spices. Time to swoon as we shine the light on this company and dish out our thoughts with this Midunu Chocolates Candle review.
A Closer Look at Midunu Chocolates
Midunu creates luxurious, handcrafted artisanal truffles featuring chocolate from Ghana, African spices, and exotic ingredients. What happens when a premier chef collaborates with a fragrance designer? Exquisite luxury, that’s what happens! Thus the birth of the Adwoa candle, considered the first of what will be a series of luxurious, chocolate-inspired candles, fit for the finest homes across the world.
As of this writing, there is only one candle offered in one size – the 8 ounce Adwoa candle, a vegan soy candle with a wooden wick.
The Adwoa candle screamed luxurious from the moment we saw it. The colored glass vessel, elegant label, and bronze gold lid were enough to set the mood. The candle smelled of smooth, deep and rich cocoa – not overly sweet or artificial.
The scent description reads: Inspired by our Adwoa truffle’s blend of 5 West African Spices. We set out to blend a sophisticated scent with cocoa or chocolate as the foundation. The end result is a candle with base notes of dark chocolate accompanied by warm spices and hints of sandalwood, leather and brandy.
It was after lighting this candle that we became truly mesmerized…there was a warm spiciness to the chocolate notes that was very sophisticated and incredibly bold without being too brash. It was unique and unlike any other chocolate scented candle we’ve burned before. We couldn’t get enough! The candle had a super clean burn and was very long-lasting, adding to our overall delight.
Overall Impression of Midunu Chocolates
The Adwoa candle from Midunu Candles is top-notch, for sure. An elegant treat with sophisticated notes, sure to please many chocolate and candle fans. We’re excited about this first candle and look forward to others in the line. We just might enjoy another candle with a gourmet chocolate truffle or two!
