Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to our FAQ Page
All of our candles are made in Amsterdam. Each candle is hand-poured to make sure that it's poured correctly and ensure an even top. All of our candles are made in small batches.
Yes! All of our candles are vegan. We make sure we use only 100% soy wax and that all of our fragrances are free of any animal-derived products.
We use fragrance oils that have a medium scent throw. All of our fragrances are free of paraffin, phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, direct CRMs, and Lyral.
We don't use essential oils because most of them are not suitable for burning or mixing with soy wax. Additionally, we decided not to use essential oils since it would drive up our prices while the quality wouldn't remain the same.
There are several factors that might alter the burning time of a candle. We use 100% soy wax which makes your candle burn slower and longer. Additionally, we use wood wicks that help your candle last longer by burning slower than other wicks. We made several tests and our candles can last up to 32 hours when you burn them correctly.
Soy wax has memory meaning that it will only melt until the last part where the wax touched. That is why would like to remind you to ensure the candle burns evenly until you reach a melt pool. Meaning, until all the wax in the surface melts and touches the edges of the glass container.
