Size maters when it comes to your candle’s ability to release its fragrance into a room. The larger the surface of your candle, the larger the space it can easily fill with scent. A candle needs to burn for at least an hour to allow the wax to melt properly and provide sufficient time for the scent to be released. Larger living spaces may require more than one candle to scent the entire room. Below is a guide to assist you in selecting the correct Luci di Lucca candles to compliment your space.
Small Candle (55g / 1.94oz) Burn time 20 – 25 hours. Surface diameter is 50mm. These work best within small defined areas such as a small bathroom, powder room, bedside table, laundry or your desk/work area. The small size is also perfect for wedding favors.
Classic Candle (275g / 9.70oz) Burn time 55 – 65 hours. Surface diameter is 85mm. These are suitable for medium sized spaces such as a kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom or office. A larger living room may require more than one candle.
When you light your candle for the first time, allow it to burn until the wax has melted to the very edge of the glass (maximum 4 hours). This will ensure the candle burns evenly down the glass and lasts for as long as possible. When you have extinguished the flame, if necessary, re-centre the wick in the liquid wax.
Before lighting the candle, always trim the wick to a length of 5mm. This will ensure an even and smoke-free burn, help to prolong the life of your candle and will stop the build-up of carbon on the sides of the glass.
Do not burn any candle for more than four hours at a time and allow it to cool for at least two hours before relighting. Do not burn a candle all the way down to the bottom. Discontinue the candle when 5mm of wax remains.
Remove dust cover before use and replace it when the candle has cooled. Store candles in a cool, dry place to protect their integrity.
