SCENTED CANDLE

The popularity of artisan crafted candles has sky rocketed in recent years, with an ever increasing number of brands coming to market. This makes it that bit harder in finding the best, and most outstanding scented candles out there. Ultimately the quality of the fragrance and the expert formulation to hit just the right tantalising notes to awaken your senses is the most important aspect of a luxury scented candle; however there are more elements to consider when buying your candle.

However there are more elements to consider when buying your candle.

The wax…
Wax is defined by the National Candle Association as ‘a generic term for classifying materials that have the following characteristics: solid at room temperature; liquid at higher temperatures; primarily hydrocarbon in structure; water repellent; insoluble in water; smooth texture; buffable under slight pressure; low toxicity; low reactivity; low odor’. From wax blends to 100% Natural waxes, such as soy and beeswax, each candle wax has its own benefit, from burn time to fragrance retention.


The wick….
The purpose of a wick is to deliver wax to the flame. The wick draws the liquefied wax up into the flame to burn. The better quality the wick the better quality the burn as different wick sizes allow for different amounts of fuel to be drawn into the flame. Too much fuel and the flame will flare and soot; too little fuel and the flame will sputter out. From flat wicks that ‘curl’ the flame, to wooden wicks that create a crackle when burning, wicks are a key element of any candle

The container….
Serving a dual purpose of containing the wax for the candle and providing a protective element to cradle the heat generated, the container is often a more aesthetic element, but an important one none the less. From ceramic to glass, there is always a perfectly complementary style to match your décor, and bear in mind containers that can be reused and upcycled.
