The burn time depends on the size of your candles :
The Gift box candles (140g) : upto 32 hours

How do I care for my candle?

Please use your candle following the instructions at the back of each box that comes with each candle. You can also find these instructions on our website here.

My candle does not burn straight

If your wick is off-center, extinguish the flame, pinch the non-incandescent wick between your fingers and pull it towards the center. This operation must be carried out delicately and whilst the surface wax is still melted. Repeat this operation between each burn session until your wick is centered once again.
