It’s Christmas Candle
A candle to celebrate Christmas, my favourite time of the year.
For this we wanted to capture that smell of Christmas in movies and at home not just a bland tree or something you can get from Yankee or TK MAxx. As with all our candles, we have a good cause. This one will donate 10% of sales (sales not profit!) to RE-Engage who work tirelessly to prevent people from being lonely.
Well to be honest, we asked our customers who we should donate to and loneliness came up time and time again. So this is us listening and doing our bit.
Over the last 20 years, the number of people over 75 who live alone in the UK has increased to 2.2m
All too often, loneliness is the reality for older people and nearly half of older people say the TV is their main source of company.
This is why we chose to give 10% of all sales of our Christmas candle to Re-engage who provide social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing. It is Christmas and nobody should feel alone.
The Scent Brief
It’s Christmas! In the immortal words of Noddy Holder.
You don’t want it to smell of stale food so you need a candle.
Not a candle that smells of Christmas tree… you have a Christmas tree.
This smells of Santa, Christmas at your Nans, mince pies, cloves, Christmas pudding, tinsel. Christmas jumpers on. People asleep on the sofa.
Warm hearts, full of love.
Christmas songs on the speakers.
Our vision is a world where no one is ever too old to make friends and enjoy social interaction.
Our mission is to work within communities to end social isolation and loneliness in older people.
Christmas Time Playlist
Candle care and safety is the serious thing on this website. If you take care of your candle it will smell better, it will also last longer and will fill your house with good vibes.
If you take good care of it everything will be better and it will also be safe to burn. We’re all grown ups but let’s be clear, you are setting fire to something in your home and that requires a bit of common sense.
Make Candles Great Again
Trim the wick - if you don’t the flame will be massive, the candle will burn badly and will be unsafe. Why would you not do this? Go find those scissors. You wanna go to 5mm if you can (that’s quite small)Trimmed the wick? Bravo. This should prevent smoke and residue.Is your wick in the middle? Yeah weird huh, sometimes when you burn a candle the wick can shift over a bit. Keep an eye on this one.
Burn Time - first time? You want to make sure you have 2 hours to let the melt pool reach all the way round the candle. Super important on the first burn to prevent those holes you see in candles (we call this tunnelling).There are full safety instructions on the box and candle but some really obvious ones we want to call out.
Never leave candles unattended
Don’t leave them by an open window or a draft
Don’t burn a candle right next to another candle. The glass can get incredibly hot if you do this and this is when cracks happen.
Don’t burn candles right down to the bottom of the vessel.
Our large candles will last 40-50 hours and the travel candles 20-25 hours so don’t panic. That last bit left in the glass is ok to leave.
