How to Identify the Quality of a Candle in Less than 5 Seconds!

Have you ever started burning a candle and 2 hours later it doesn't smell anymore? How do you know which candles are the best? Here is the trick!
Most of the time when looking for a candle, your first instinct is to smell the candle to make sure it has that perfect fragrance for your home. Every time I would buy a candle, I would cross my fingers and hope that it would last. Finally, I found the solution to this horrible problem and it's as simple as pie! 
Use this simple trick below:
1. Smell the candle and make sure it's exactly what you are looking for! 
2. Use your finger or thumb to wipe away the top layer of wax. A few movements back and forth should be enough. 
3. Re-smell the candle. 
4. If the candle's fragrance is stronger, then the candle is made with the best quality. If the potency decreased or stayed the same, leave it on the shelf. 
The science behind this simple trick is how the fragrance oil is distributed throughout the wax. Higher quality candles (which last much longer) distribute the oil making the smell last through the life of the candle. 
All of our candles are trick tested, and smell approved! Give us a try!
