2 Jimmyjane Afterglow Natural Massage Candle

It briefly cameoed in an episode of Girls, but beyond the television fame it's also one of the most popular massage candles around. Its pointed spout helps you avoid spilling oil everywhere (bless) and it comes in a range of scents to engage the senses—like fresh cucumber or an "if only it were edible" cocoa option.

3 Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Candle

Lelo's sex toys always look like verifiable product porn, so it makes sense that their flickering massage candle would look just as chic on the night stand. And they put just as much thought into the ingredients: their candles are all-natural and come in three calming scents: vanilla, snow pea, and a combo of black pepper and pomegranate.

5 Coco de Mer Roseravished Massage Candle

It might seem like a small fortune, but consider this magic candle worth its weight in liquid gold. It's just as fun to unwrap as it is to light up (the sensual rose and cedarwood scents are key) and it comes with a little spoon so you can avoid an oily mess.
