How To Use

  • For optimal burning, trim your wick to 5mm before each lighting to avoid smoking and overheating.
  • Always protect the surface on which the candle sits by placing it on a heatproof coaster.
  • The first burn of any candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquefy. This will ensure an even burn for each light.
  • Refrain from burning candles longer than 3 hours at a time, and never burn a candle when there is less than 1cm of wax at the base.
  • Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children.
  • The candle jar will be hot after burning, so allow the wax to cool completely before handling
  • Once the flame is extinguished make sure the wick is upright and centered.

This is like Marmite (although it doesn't smell like it)

This is my first premium candle and I have to say I love the smell. It has real depth and complexity and is a real change from the vanilla and fruity candles from Aldi that we've been using. That being said - my wife hates it (hence the 3 star review). She thinks it smells too much like wood smoke and makes her want to wash her clothes and hair after being in the room with it. I lit it for 2.5 hours in a 19degC living room and it didn't melt to the edges of the jar and has started tunnelling a little.

The smell of the candle took up residence in my nostrils before I even opened the box. I think it's a fairly strong smell and it nigh-on tickles my sinuses (it's quite stimulating). It smells of incense and old wood, like an antique piano played by an old hippy.

I'm not sure I'd buy it again unfortunately despite liking it myself. It's currently burning in my office where it has been banished.

Nicole Elkins
Could be stronger

Like the scent and it is fairly slow burning. The fragrance isn’t as strong as I would like while it is burning, otherwise I really like it.

A woody favourite

I can't praise this candle enough - a woody, warm scent that fills the room. Instantly comforting & a crowd pleaser.

Dario Magliocchetti-Lombi
New favourite candle

One of my new favourite candles - have been working my way through the five star reviewed candles on Osmology and this has quickly become the best purchase in our household - and more repurchased!
I personally enjoy woody/smoky smells in the evening as I find these soothing and relaxing. I was previously using PF Candle Teakwood and Tobacco -- not a direct comparison but this is a much more complex smell which carries stronger and diffuses across a room almost instantly. This has a very earthy and regal scent to it, but is complemented with notes of jasmine. Very enjoyable.
I light this candle for about 30-60 minutes in the evening (more than enough to diffuse across the whole room) and has lasted over 8 weeks.

Kristina Radovanovic
Amazing scent, slightly weaker throw than Petal by Boy Smells

This scent is astonishing. I was really happy with the woodsy, clean, fresh and just a tad spicy scent. It was exactly what I was searching for! What I am particularly pleased is that it leaves the scent in the room even after blowing off the candle - it lingers for several hours and I can smell it even the next morning. Finally, it does smell a bit even while not burning it. The only complaint is that it is a tad weaker than what would be my preference, which is a solid medium strength. Overall happy with my purchase and will likely repeat it in the future!
