Meet Jackie Aina’s Tropic Like It’s Hot Candle Collection

Last Updated on November 20, 2022

FORVR Mood is bringing the heat this Summer with its newly-released limited edition Tropic Like It’s Hot Collection. It’s poised to deliver ‘flirty and fruity’ tropical vibes all Summer long.

Co-founder and co-owner of FORVR Mood, Jackie Aina, hopped on Instagram Live on Tuesday the 17th of May to celebrate the launch of her new Tropic Like It’s Hot summer 2022 collection. And we couldn’t be more excited.

Donning a gorgeous, summery look herself, Jackie took us on a journey to learn more about the gang of four: Thirst Trapping, Sweet Wave, Leaf Me Be, Sun Kiss & Tell. She describes all four single-wick candles as “inviting, fun, bold, flirty, summer, tropical”. Distinct in their scent, each candle serves up a different adventure when lit.

About the Tropic Like It’s Hot Collection

The collection is said to be inspired by “private islands, lush rainforests, and cocktails that come with umbrellas”. Its aesthetics and blended notes are certainly giving all that and more. Although all four candles share the tropical summer vibe, each of them is special in its own way. So, read on to find out which candle tickles your summer fancy.

Meet Tropic Like It's Hot Collection- Thirst Trapping Candle

Thirst Trapping Candle 10 oz. (283g)



Thirst Trapping “smells like spring and summer” in one, says Jackie. A “true watermelon scent”, it’s the perfect candle to burn at brunch or when you have guests over. The airy, fruity scent gives off apple with a sweet hint of pineapple. So, if you like fragrances that are “cool, watery, bright”, this is for you.

Sweet Wave brings a positive, flirty spin to the phrase ‘Heat Wave’. Jackie describes it as a “creamy blueberry” fragrance with coconut and nutty notes seeping through. It’s your perfect gourmand blend if you’re into savory, sweet scents with hints of vanilla. This makes for a great date night candle as gourmands are known to be oh-so seductive!

Jackie calls this candle ‘bright, happy, inviting’, associating it with the color Yellow. The scent gives off a citrus-floral twist with slight hints of sugar banana. This is a great everyday candle to burn on all occasions.

The collection is also available in miniature sizes, which is typically a crowd favorite. Although it has a decreased burn time of 40-60 hours, it’s still a more affordable option. It’s especially a good choice if you want to try each candle before you buy a full-sized version of your favorite.

The Collection’s Packaging is Where Summer Meets Style

The candle jars flaunt metallic jade, olive green and emerald hues. These trendy greens are super luxe whilst keeping in line with the tropical theme. Also, the finish is a bronzed matte and on top is a bubbleless label to elevate the entire look.

For our conscious shoppers, you can repurpose your empty candle jars to hold other valuables. The outer carton packaging which comes in olive green tones adorned with golden leaf patterns is also recyclable.
