The brand explains on its website, “We’re boujie, but not b*tchy — we think everyone should have access to products that make them feel like THAT girl. The idea was to create a lifestyle brand that’s fun, light and prioritizes feeling good. We’re not here to sell you a facade.”

And because of this empowerment, many shoppers are big supporters of the brand and its Nigerian-American founder Jackie Aina. Aina is a well-known YouTuber and influencer who first established herself in the beauty space. She has 1.7 million followers on Instagram and 3.58 million followers on YouTube.

“Second time purchasing!” one five-star reviewer wrote. “You already know anything Auntie Jackie puts her name on, I am supporting. I bought the set when it first dropped and fell in love. I put my family, friends, and followers on to her candles.”

Another explained, “I love each scent! I have them all over my apartment! I will order some more! And the presentation of the packaging is gorgeous!”

In comparison to other candle brands, Forvr Mood offers its products at a more accessible price point so that you can enjoy luxury on a budget. It’s a win-win.
