Candle Burn Guide


  • Filthy little scandles should be burnt for about 3 hours to achieve a full melt pool and maximum scent throw. This will also eliminate tunneling, where the candle burns down the centre leaving wax on the sides.
  • Keep the candle's wick trimmed to 6mm – that’s 1/4 inch for anyone who hasn’t quite made the leap to metric. This reduces soot and smoke problems, and prolongs its life.
  • These candles are highly fragranced (8%). This can lead to carbon build-up on the wick which is called mushrooming. If this occurs, extinguish the candle, trim the mushroom off the wick and re-light.
  • Candles should cease burning when about 12mm (1/2 inch) of wax remains at the bottom of their container.
  • Never leave a burning candle all alone. [A] It’s dangerous, and [B] they like company.
