Testimonials

Rosaline

"I just want you to know that there are three things I love about your candles.

1. The exquisite aroma.

2. The fact that the wick continues to burn all the way to the bottom--some candles stop burning without using all the wax

3. Most importantly, your candles don't give me a headache when I light them." 

Alice

"Long-lasting luxurious scents" 

Rachael

 "I am delighted that I discovered this company! The scented candles are amazing - a great selection and some really nice combinations. Always get compliments when I'm burning them in my home. Best of all, when the candles burn there is no leftover wax! Fantastic product, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!" 

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of wax do you use?

We use a blend of soy and paraffin waxes to create a container wax that has low contraction, good optical appearance and gives a superb, smooth surface finish. The low melting point ensures that the wax burns down completely even when using smaller size wick. It has excellent fragrance retention. 

What fragrances can I choose from?

We have a large range of in-house fragrances you can select from or alternatively you can have a fragrance you like matched or we can help to develop a fragrance unique to you. 

Can I supply my own fragrance and/or glassware?

Yes, we are happy for you to supply your own fragrance oil and/or glass/containers. All glass/containers supplied must be packaged appropriately to avoid damage and must be supplied clean, ready to use and be fit for purpose. If you have an established supplier of candle fragrances we are happy to work with you, and have your supplier send us the fragrance required to complete production. Any materials supplied must be fit for purpose. 

Can I get my glass coulered or my logo printed onto the glass?

Yes. However, minimum set up costs need to be considered as well as additional courier costs required (to send the glass to the printer). The MOQ for locally printed glassware is approximately 300 units. 

Where do you ship to?

Orders can be shipped worldwide. All orders are 'ex works'. 

How long does it take to receive my order?

Many things can affect how long your order may take to produce for example, quantity ordered and the time of year the order is placed. We endeavour to keep you informed and work to have orders manufactured and delivered within 4-6 weeks. Generally the longest part of the process is waiting on printing and packaging. 

Can you store and ship my candles?

Yes, we can make arrangements to store candles at our facility and ship periodically. However, we do not offer a drop ship service for individual orders and customers.

Do you have information on candle care and safety tips?

Yes, please email us and request our Candle Care & Safety Tips document. This document is general in nature but covers most points on the matter. 

What is CLP?

CLP labels are now required by law for 'mixtures' such as candles, wax melts and diffusers. These items need to inform customers of chemical hazards inherent within them. CLP states that the information should be visible when the product is set down for normal use. We will help you through this process to make it as easy as possible. 

Do you use lead wicks or cores?

No, we do not use lead wicks. We use cotton, paper and tin blends which are braided together to provide a clean and consistent burn and we consider these to be the best on the market. We will work with you if you have different ideas you wish to try. We do not use any cores in our candles, ('cores' are unscented blocks of wax sometimes used to hold the wick in a candle) your candles will smell the same the last time you burn it as it did the first time. The fragrance is mixed throughout so you will have scent the whole way down the candle.

Do you have a minimum order quantity?

Yes, our minimum order of candles is 100 units. Quantity always determines price, in order to be profitable for clients, we always suggest higher quantities in order to reduce your per unit pricing. Having said that we produce great value candles from 300 upwards, these can be packaged on site. Make sure to contact our team for prices. 

Can you provide 'clear skin' candles so that I can do my own labels and packaging?

Yes, we are happy to provide clients with 'clear skin' candles. Alternatively, we can apply client supplied labels and pack your order into supplied boxes. We adhere a safety warning label to the bottom of your candle and where we have provided fragrance oil we can produce the chemical labeling information for your scented products.
