Candle Burning Best Practices - Pour & Penchant

Candle Burning Best Practices

Trim the wick to 1/4" at all times. A trimmed wick will produce a controlled flame for an even burn while reducing soot and maximizing fragrance diffusion.

Let the wax pool. The wax pool is the liquid layer of wax that forms a candle burns. Pour & Penchant multi-wick candles create an even wax pool across the candle's surface within two hours.

It is best to burn our scented candles four consecutive hours before extinguishing them. Each four-hour period you burn a candle is called a burn cycle. To maximize your candle's fragrance and life, burn your candle no longer than one burn cycle in 24 hours.

Always burn your candle safely on a heat-resistant surface, keep out of drafts, and never leave a burning candle unattended.

Know when to say goodbye. When 1/2" of wax remains, it is time to let your candle go. When the wax is gone, don't toss the vessel— wash it out and use it to hold pens, grooming supplies, or other smalls.

Create different moods throughout your home with Pour & Penchant candles. Burn them separately or layer fragrances together for a custom-scented experience, what we call a scent story.
