Candle Care Guide

Our hand-poured soy wax candles provide many hours of clean-burning, strong-smelling fragrance that we want you to make the most of.

Your candle's first burn is always the most important as it sets the stage for how it performs. As wax retains memory, we recommend allowing it to melt to the edge of the jar. It may take up to 4 hours during the first burn.

Doing this helps avoid future tunnelling, a build-up of non-melted wax around the sides, often going to waste. It will also maximise scent throw as a candle releases fragrance through the melted wax.

To achieve a stable burn, trim your wick to approximately 5 mm between uses. We recommend using a wick trimming tool for best results, or you can pinch away the loose bits with your fingers.

High quality scented candle

Lovely scent which fills the room, excellent value for money. Will be buying more for myself and as gifts for best friends

Suitable for Christmas

Purchased alongside a Merry Citrus candle. Both provide a strong and long lasting burn/scent.

George R
Rum Candle

High quality candle, well presented and still going strong after 30 odd hours.

Very interesting scent to go with it!


I'm providing this candle with 4 stars as opposed to 5 as certain notes (clove and cinnamon) are stronger than the rum note of the fragrance. Despite buying this because I love the smell of rum, it's still a lovely candle which produces a warming scent. I can see myself purchasing another for the festive season which I would closely associate it with.

2nd Purchase

I absolutely love this scent - It would be great to see a 3 wick version of this candle in the future... Thank you self (ish)!
