a small candle
also known as a nightlight, they burn for hours and are contained in a thin metal casing, if left to burn for long enough , the wax
will completely liquefy
. They can come in many exciting scents
and colours but are most commonly white and without a scent. people put them floating in a glass of water or in a small patterned cup or lantern
, create an atmosphere
or jazz up an area.
