ORANGE BALLS - CHRISTMAS ROOTS scented candle 960g
Bicci di Lorenzo’s intricate painting presenting a scene in the life of saint Nicholas of Myra – a scene that gave rise to the tradition of exchanging gifts during Christmas – was the direct inspiration for the Orange Balls candle. The fragrance addresses the origin of the custom and reminds about it primary meaning encouraging selfless kindness and empathy. It is no coincidence that the fragrance’s name was derived from orange that signify kindness in culture, but are also treated as a synonym of luxury. Golden oranges are presented in the foreground of di Lorenzo’s painting. Nowadays, this fruit is often added to Christmas gifts. Therefore, the scent of sweet oranges is obviously present in Orange Balls, but the top note reveals also hints of nutmeg and rose pepper. Then, the heart note manifests itself; filled with the aroma of jasmine, spicy and woody notes. The fragrance is finished by musk, vanilla, cedar wood, patchouli and balsamic notes. Many of these scents are associated with the territories of Asia Minor. After all, it’s where saint Nicholas actually lived.
Hence, Orange Balls refers to primary ideas behind gift giving, putting on a pedestal empathy, selflessness, and the genuine wish to make someone else happy.
Burning a candle
To ensure that your candles last as long as possible, we recommend that you read the following tips.
Each candle burning session should not last shorter than until the wax is melted all the way across the surface. To prevent black flames, trim the wick to about 0.5 cm before the next time you lit a candle. Remove the cut portion from the candle. On single occasion, do not burn the candle for longer than 4 hours. Avoid moving or tilting a burning candle.
If the wick is leaning slightly, gently straighten it before the wax hardens again. It is recommended to wait until the wax hardens completely before lighting a candle up again. It's best to use a candle extinguisher or a candle snuffer hat to extinguish a candle. It’s also important not to let the candle burn all the way down. We recommend that you discontinue burning the candle when there remains less than 1 centimeter of unmelted wax.
Do not store the candle in damp places or in places exposed to direct sunlight. If the candle requires cleaning, it can be gently washed in cold water and left to dry out before next use. It’s worth noticing that wax colour can differ depending on the fragrance, which is a natural phenomenon resulting from oil composition.
The candle should always be placed in a safe, temperature-resistant place. It’s important to place the candle away from flammable materials such as furniture and curtains and sources of heat, such as radiators and TVs. Keep burning candles away from draughts.
If there are a few candles burning, keep a minimum distance of 20 centimetres between them. It’s also important not to leave the burning candle unattended. Do not move the burning candle to avoid the risk of spilling hot wax.
Remember that the flame should not reach glass walls as it may cause damage and cracking. If you’re hypersensitive to fragrances, exercise necessary caution while burning the candle.
It’s also important to keep candles away from children and pets to avoid accidental access to flame and prevent potential dangers.
