Sandalwood & Black Pepper Triple Wick Candle
Introducing: ORIGINS by Christopher Scents.
I enjoy all of the signature fragrances that I currently sell, from Lemongrass & Ginger, to Black Pomegranate or Lime, Basil & Mandarin; they’re classic fragrances that I’ll always love (it helps that you love them too!), but I wanted to introduce a slightly different spin on things.
With ORIGINS I wanted to go back to the fragrances that first inspired me to start Christopher Scents; rich and indulgent colognes; this is exactly what ORIGINS is, the fragrances I have in my home, where it all started.
ORIGINS will change frequently, each scent available for a limited time, before I change it up and release a new one. You can guarantee one thing, this will be the fragrance in my home at that particular time.
The first fragrance I’m introducing is Sandalwood & Black Pepper which is bold and complex - leading with top notes of leather, tobacco, amber and musk. The middle is a spicy mixture of black tea and pepper. The base note is ages teak wood with tones of patchouli and sandalwood; it’s gorgeous and so strong!
This is a three wick candle presented in an amber jar with lid.
Caring For Your Candle
HOW TO BURN YOUR CANDLE
1. Light your candle in a well-ventilated room, away from drafts, or fans, which can cause sooting (black marks on the vessel), or rapid, uneven burning.
2. Burn regular-sized candles for one and a half to two hours at a time. Burning for less time can cause the candle to 'tunnel', which leaves a build-up of wax around the vessel's sides. Burning for longer periods (over four hours) can cause the wick to move, or slant.
3. Make sure you stop burning your candle when 10mm of wax remains at the bottom, keeping an eye on a burning candle when the wax is low.
HOW TO CARE FOR WICKS
1. Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings and matches, as debris in the wax can act as a secondary wick, encouraging your candle to burn faster.
2. After extinguishing the flame with a snuffer, centre and straighten the wick. Burning for too long can cause the wick to move, or slant. If you see a flaming wick come close to the vessel wall, extinguish the flame and straighten the wick to prevent the vessel from cracking.
3. Long, or crooked wicks can create high flames, smoking, or sooting. Trimming the wick to 5mm (when the wax has set) is the easiest way to prevent this.
