Make your candles last longer by following our three simple steps…
time For a trim
Regular trims keep your hair in tip-top condition, and the same goes for your wick! Keep it as short as possible, no longer than 1cm, or the flame causes black smoke that can mark the candle glass – or, worse, your walls.
QUELL the well
Burn new candles for a minimum of two hours to allow the wax to pool evenly and stop that annoying dip in the middle of the candle forming.
Forego the blow
It sounds weird, but it’s actually better not to blow out your candles! The bacteria from your breath affects the quality of the oils and the wick can go offcentre, which blackens the glass when the candle is next alight. If your candle came with a lid, use this to extinguish the flame or, if you’re feeling fancy, invest in a Diptyque snuffer, £20.
