The scent from candles is called, throw. Cold throw for candles that are not lit and solid wax, and hot throw for candles that are lit with melting wax. The amount of scent from a candle can vary between cold and hot throws, but it is important that both deliver well.

Candles and the uses for candles can vary quite a lot, however, if you want to know how to get the best scent throw from your candles, keep reading for our top tips on how to achieve this.

On the first use, burn your candles for at least an hour

When you first burn your candle ensure that you do not extinguish the flame until there is a full melt pool across the top.

The melt pool is the top layer of melting wax, as the wax burns to the perimeter of the candle, it should not be extinguished until the melted wax has made its way right to the edge of your container. This takes typically around an hour or two, depending on the size of the candle.

The fragrance has the best chance to fully be released once a full melt pool has been achieved. This also helps to prevent any tunnelling from your candle. 


Keep your candles away from draughts and wind

Place your candles in the best possible place in your home to achieve the optimal levels of the scent throw. Always avoid placing your candles near a draught, such as an opened window or air conditioning unit, as this can distort and evaporate the fragrance.

Keep your wick trimmed

Trim your wicks regularly to ensure you get the best burn from your candles. Keep your wicks trimmed between 0.5cm and 0.6cm. A wick trimmer is helpful, for once your candle starts to melt lower into the container and the wick becomes harder to reach.


Not all candles are made equally

The fragrance from candles are most often derived from fragrance oils, invest in candle brands such as Bisou Candle Co, that use quality fragrance oils that blend well with candle wax to offer pleasant-smelling candles, and also long-lasting scent.
