Value Added Liquid Candle Scents
The Value Added Line is the newest line in Candlewic’s family of fragrances. The Candlewic Company has searched the entire U.S. to select fragrances that can be offered at the most competitive prices. These fragrances are all intended to be below $11.00 per pound. While they may be low in price, their quality is not. Many of these fragrances have been developed specifically for Candlewic. Only fragrances that have met our testing requirements are part of this collection. Several of these fragrances have been taken from the Super Sales Section of our website and have proven to be very popular.
The recommended amount of fragrance to use can vary depending on a particular fragrance and the desired strength. We suggest starting at 6% (1 ounce per pound) and adjusting accordingly up to 9% (1.5 ounces per pound) Candlewic does not recommend exceeding 9% fragrance levels, higher fragrance loads will have an adverse effect on your candles burning properties. Higher fragrance loads may contribute to excessive smoke, coking (soot) and blooming (mushrooming).
Candlewic suggests adding the fragrance just before you pour the candle. Prolonged heating of the fragrance may contribute to some the fragrance being lost. It is very important to make sure you fully agitate the wax and the fragrance before pouring the wax.
Candlewic suggests storing your fragrances in a cool dark place. Direct sunlight may cause excessive discoloration and crystallization. This will cause a very short shelf like for your fragrances. The shelf life of the fragrance will vary for each particular fragrance, anywhere from 6 months up to a year.
