Decorative wax candles are much more than wax and a
piece of string. All candles that we manufacture undergo rigorous testing.
The first thing we test is the wax. Waxes are not as homogeneous as most
people would imagine. They are refined by a variety of methods and from a
variety of crude sources. It is possible for different batches to have
In order for candles to burn properly a delicate balance is struck among
the wax formula, perfume, dye, candle diameter, candle height and burning
requirement. Candles should generally burn without dripping or smoking, and
be re-lightable after they have been extinguished. We burn test our candles
inside special cabinets in a temperature-controlled environment. Our lab
technicians aided by a special slow motion video camera monitor the burning
times and burning characteristics of our candles. This allows us to tune our
waxes and wicks to burning perfection. Its no accident that we make some of
the best burning candles in the industry.
