Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and happiness never decreases by being shared - Gautama Buddha
The first burn of your new candle is very important, and burning the wax to the edge, on the initial burn, can help avoid creating a tunnel.
Two years ago I developed some lovely new candle products, with the help of Daniel, a highly experienced candle maker in London. These beautiful candles were created in two scents and sizes, and presented in elegant ivory white ceramic containers.
Unlike my perfume, which I hand pour myself here in Buckinghamshire, the candles require a different skill. A keen understanding of molecular burn, materials and scent throw is needed to ensure the candle has a good burn.
In anticipation of a lockdown, we are going to make one batch of candles between now and Christmas, and I will be selling them exclusively to my private customers, and readers of e.notes.
Jasmine Patchouli & Oakmoss - is fragrantly layered with a fresh fruity top note, carefully balanced with Jasmine and supported by Patchouli and Oakmoss
Orange Blossom & Dark Wood - is fragrantly layered with Orange Blossom and Apple, carefully balanced with warm tones of Pepper and supported by a subtle hint of Vanilla and Dark Wood.
The candles are made from 100% soy wax and cotton wicks, which are naturally bio-degradable and allow them to burn longer and cleaner.
Price to readers of e.notes
single wick 300 ml soy candle £27 (RRP £35)
two for £50
triple wick 500ml soy candle £37 (RRP £55)
two for £70
These candles haven't yet been poured, but I have started taking pre-orders, so please email if you would like to reserve some either for yourself or for presents.
