Let us take you through the steps you need to craft the perfect scented candle.
Our scents have been created from the personal experience of Thomas Hingant
The process takes time, with dedicated attention to the feelings and emotions that are captivated by the scents and the atmosphere the candles creates. In this stage, the candle's soul comes to life. The fragrance and the way you interact with the candle shapes the experience. Your personal history, psychology, feelings and memories will interact and react with the scent. The right fragrance can pull memories from your mind and take you back to a different time and place.
All of our scented candles have been hand prepared by Thomas Hingant. The process of making a candle takes time, care and practice. Careful consideration needs to be taken, not only in the steps behind the craft itself, but the environment surrounding the candle. The air, the temperature, and the season all play an important role in shaping the candle in some way.
The final flourish on the candle. The centrepiece is where life comes from. The placement of the wick defines where the fire will emerge and how the candle will be shaped as it burns down. Misalignment changes the shape and impacts the life of the scented candle.
A luxury candle should be poured by hand. The pouring process for a scented candle captures the moment when the wax is fused with the fragrance. These ingredients must meet at the perfect temperature to create the right combination for the candle and the lasting life of the scent. As with all steps in the candle-making process, the love can be felt when the attention to detail is given.
The closing action of the candle making process. Each wick is treated with care, as rough handling can pull it from place and ruin the wick’s alignment within the body. The height of the wick is designed to complement the kind of wax, and affects how we want the candle to burn and for how long.
This part of the process takes time and practice. Like everything else, the candles have their labels wrapped by hand, ensuring their physical beauty aligns with their scent. An often unconsidered part of the candle-making process, wrapping the candle is something that can not be done without deliberation, care and patience.
