WINTER'S NIGHT - CHRISTMAS ROOTS scented candle 960g
Though Christmas traditions are mainly associated with Christianity, the rituals, customs, flavours and fragrances that accompany them are the result of blending of various cultures. It collected pieces from various countries and focused on unusual arrangements, referring, among others, to the music of the Middle East – after all, it was from those areas that Christianity came to us.
The Winter’s Night scented candle is a sensory embodiment of this multicultural dialogue. Specific fragrance notes symbolically refer to various geographical areas. Cardamom is the dominant scent here. Cardamom is native to Ceylon, the Indian Peninsula, China and Indonesia, but this spice is used in Lebanese or Israeli cuisine too. Therefore, it transports us to various areas where major religions emerged – Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism. Still, the Winter’s Night candle features also e.g. bergamot, which – though came from the East, nowadays is called the gem of Italian Calabria, or licorice, which can be found in a variety of territories, but it's probably most strongly associated with Scandinavian sweets and is often called the black gold of the north. Above all, winter night is therefore a multicultural tale told through fragrance but inspired by various sensual experiences, from musical to culinary and visual ones.
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.
