Q: How should you keep a scented candle to retain its scent?
A: There are a number of things you can do to help enhance the life of a scented candle.
For a start keep them in a cooler place, heat is what diffuses the fragrance so the warmer they are the more fragrance will be used. If you want to keep them for a long time you should wrap them in tissue paper and store them somewhere cool, this will help hold the fragrance. Consider the type of candle you buy too. Jar candles or tin candles retain their scent because the candle and so the scent is enclosed. Other candles like pillar candles aren’t enclosed so the scent will naturally be more exposed. In our opinion candles should be admired though, keeping them hidden away for special occasions is fine but we prefer to see them on display. So remember our scented candles will retain their scent literally for years. We use the finest ingredients and make the candles ourselves, we give you our word on their quality.
