Village Candle

When it comes to enjoyable fragrances captured with high-quality blends and materials, Village Candle which is Manufactured in the USA with Over 126 Fragrances should be on your mind.

 
Village Candle boasts its use of pure essential oils and plant extracts from around the world and with the use of food grade paraffin wax and blends to create the finest quality fragranced candles.

 
To the credit of the founder Paul Aldrich who invented the Dual Wick™ design, he managed to capture the audience who enjoy a soot free and even burn.

 
I must admit I do like the ambiance that is provided by the dual-wick. The glow is far greater and fills the room with a lot more light. You might think that the wax would burn away far quicker than its competitors such as Yankee Candle, but Village Candle jars do contain far more wax in comparison to the Yankee Candle Jars. Here are some stats for example;

 

Yankee Candle Village Candle
Small Jar: 3.7oz
Medium Jar: 14.5oz
Large Jar: 22oz
Small Jar: 11oz
Medium Jar: 16oz
Large Jar: 26 oz

 

As far as burn time goes here is how they compare.

 

Yankee Candle Village Candle
Small Jar Burn Time: up to 30 hours
Medium Jar Burn Time: up to 75 hours
Large Jar Burn Time: up to 150 hours
Small Jar Burn Time: up to 55 hours
Medium Jar Burn Time: up to 105 hours
Large Jar Burn Time: up to 170 hours

 

Having had the chance to try both brands, I can say that Village Candle is my winner the fragrances are true to life and smell fantastic. Here are the best sellers of 2017.

Fresh Scents for Summer 2015

What comes to mind when you think of a nice summer’s day? Could it be, the warm Sun and clear blue skies, green grass, a gentle breeze, and the scents of summer, so fresh and invigorating. You can finally open your windows after the rigours of winter, but what about the evenings, sitting indoors or if you are lucky on the veranda. Why not accentuate the aromas with scented atmospheric candles.

Floral Candles

What about the wonderful Vincent Van Gogh inspired sunflower yellow candle, by St Eval in Cornwall. It will send tones of amber and linden blossom drifting into the room,combined with natural mimosa, to create a perfect balance of natural summer fragrances.

Linden produces a divine aroma, bees flock to the flowers, and it often appears in poetry as a tree to sit under on a summer’s day. The scent of mimosa may inspire you to sip a refreshing summer drink of chilled citrus fruit and champagne, aptly named after it.

Fruity Candles

The aromas of natural fruit always remind us of the growing season. Fresh and invigorating the Blueberry pillar candle by Bolsius is aromatic and fruity without being overbearing. The blueberry is noted for being one of the world’s healthiest fruits with its antioxidant properties.There is also an exotic mango candle that is unique in flavour and fragrance. Your guests will be wondering where you have hidden the summer fruit bowl.

Honeydew Melon fragrance candles,smell like fresh cut melon,on a hot day, one of summers supreme pleasures. Sweet and deliciously juicy! Honeydew will remind those who sense it, of summer salads with melon and cantaloupe, and healthy breakfasts with mixed fruits and cereal.

More Summertime Favourites

Lemon grass is not instantly thought of as a summer scent. However it does have a few properties that make it a good candidate. It does have a mild citrus aroma which may prove more beneficial to those with a sensitive nose, for the stronger scented candles. It also has properties that will help keep those annoying flies away whilst you are dozing on the porch on a summers evening. It may even entice you to go and make a cup of lemongrass tea to help you relax even more.

Simon and Garfunkel sang about Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, and going to summer fairs.The unmistakable aromas of herbs and spices from Provence bring to mind eating at a long table in the garden under a clear blue sky. Price’s Provence Scented Candle Lantern will let you carry on the festivities into the summer night. It also has insect repellent qualities that work effectively without the overpowering scent of citronella.

Everyone will equate different aromas with summer, possibly the more rural you’re past experiences,the stronger will be the association. Scented Candle Shop has a large selection and you will be able to find something to suit your taste, or more to the point sense of smell. Take the fresh scents of summer right into your home.

Do Coloured Candles Burn Quicker Than White Candles?

Whether coloured candles burn faster than white candles is a question that has been getting asked more and more frequently recently. There are increasing numbers of YouTube videos dedicated to the subject, not to mention a multitude of science fair projects attempting to answer the question once and for all. There are contrasting theories, with one being that white candles are purer and thus take longer to burn, with the additional dyes in coloured candles helping to fuel their faster burn time. Another theory is that coloured candles burn longer because of the dye.

The conflicting ideas most likely stem from the various experiments folks have conducted having thrown up contradictory results, with some declaring coloured candles the faster burners while others declare white candles are faster. These contradictions are to be expected when you understand the real reasons behind the burn times of candles.

The Real Reasons Behind Candle Burn Times

In reality, the amount of dye used to create the majority of coloured candles is actually extremely small and unlikely to affect the burn time at all. It’s true that some candles feature far more dye than others, and these richly coloured candles may indeed burn a little faster due to the increase of heat that the dye ingredients create. But most coloured candles do not use enough dye for it to make any significant difference.

The truth is that any particular candle’s burn time will be mostly determined by the type of wax used in conjunction with the type of wick used. There are additional factors to consider as well, such as additives like wax hardeners, scent ingredients and even the age of the candle, which can all affect the burn time.

Wax Hardness Affects Burn Time

Additives like wax hardeners help a candle burn longer, as the softer the wax the faster it will burn down. Naturally softer wax such as soy wax will burn quicker than naturally harder waxes such as paraffin candles. Beeswax is also harder than soy wax, so again they will take longer to burn down than soy wax candles.

How Wicks Affect a Candle’s Burn Time

Wicks are lot more important to a candle’s burn time than they are often given credit for. Thick wicks will produce a larger, hotter flame and thus burn the candle quicker than a thin wick. The material of the wick will make a difference as well. Some wick material burns hotter and faster than others, so this can be a massive factor in determining a candle’s burn time.

Other Influences on Candle Burn Times

As well as the additives and additional ingredients such as those included in scented candles, the age of a candle will also affect the burn time as older candles dry out over time. The conditions of the room in which the candle is burning can also have a small effect on the burn time. A drafty room may cause the flame’s heat to disperse before it melts the wax as it normally would in a completely still environment.

Ultimately, a candle’s burn time is determined by a variety of factors, with its colour rarely being one of the most influential. Do let us know if you have noticed any other factors that help increase or decrease the burn time of your favourite candles.
