How long should I burn my candles?
We recommend that you burn your candle for no more than 4 hours. The ScentSational Fragrances will remain throughout the house long after the candle has been extinguished.
Why can I no longer smell my candle fragrance burning?
If you have just lit the candle the scent throw will take some time. Ensure that you allow a wax pool to occur on top. If the candle has been burning for some time you may have become accustomed to the fragrance. If you leave the room for a few moments and return you should again receive the scent.
How do ensure I get the best out of my candle?
Each time you burn your candle always allow a pool of wax to form evenly across the top before extinguishing. This avoids tunnel burn where the candle may burn down the middle and leave an excess on the sides. Ensure that the candle is not placed in a draft and not left in direct sunlight for long periods of time.
