"Fragrance brings personality and dimension that can almost become an extension of your personal brand and the essence of your home"
The Scented Candle brings the elegance and sophistication to your home. It’s been said that the fragrance is the strongest tie to memory and these artisanal scented candles are just not meant to light it up and blown away, but a memory that need to be taken care of. Candles are the perfect finishing touch to any home's decor, not only for their glorious scent, but also for the cosy candlelight and enigmatic atmosphere they throw to lift up your mood. In order to maximise your favourite candles, follow this simple guide and make it last longer.
The First burn
When lighting for the first time, ensure that the first layer has completely liquefied. This will prevent tunnelling, and create an even burn for the duration of the candle's 'life'.
We recommend burning your candle for 2-3 hours initially to ensure tunnelling on your second burn.
Trimming your Wicks Is Essential
Trim your wick before every lighting. The wick only needs to be approximately 6mm in length, keeping it this length will avoid mushrooming which can result in unnecessary soot.
Trimming ensures that the candle will burn evenly and you will get nice and clean burn throughout the use of you candles.
If soot forms on the inside of the vessel, extinguish candle, wait for it to cool, then wipe with a clean damp cloth. Trim wick and relight.
Extinguishing a candle
Extinguish candle with a snuffer, or dip the wick into the melted wax and then straighten wick to prevent smoking and also prevent hot wax from splattering. Do not blow out.
Location of candle
Keep it away from windy spaces.Draughts decrease burn time, cause uneven burning, smoking and diminished scent throw.
Don’t burn all the way down
Candles are not burnt when there is 10mm of wax or less remaining in the jar. Although it is tempting to continue burning your candle until the wax is gone, we strongly advise against this as the flame needs a solid base of wax to avoid overheating the glass jar."
Maximise your scent throw
For maximum fragrance, keep windows and doors closed and burn in desired space for 30 mins before entering.
How to store candles
Always store your candles in a cool, dark and dry place. Scented candles also look great stored under a glass cloche, which also protects from dust
Cleaning of candles
You can remove dust and fingerprints from a candle by gently rubbing the surface with a piece of nylon or a soft cloth. The cloth can be dry or slightly dampened with water
“The most important thing to remember is that candles involve a naked flame and they do need to be treated with caution"
