- 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.
- 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.
- 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 centred.

Cedar Stack, Hinoki Fantome & St. Al Reviews
This was my first foray into the Boy Smells brand, so I choose this woody variety pack as an introduction to their scents. I've burned all three at least twice now, and so far I've been impressed with the throw of these mini candles, which is great for the size and fills my decent-sized living room after a 30-60 min burn, as well as the chic aesthetic and warm, cosy scents. I prefer candles that use natural waxes, and the combination of coconut and beeswax that these candles use is a really nice texture (not too soft, not gritty); it looks and feels high quality, and happily so far it seems to burn quite slowly too. The only down side is I think these candles are prone to tunnelling. I don't know if that would be the case for the larger size or whether it's to do with the size and shape of the mini candles, but they all were struggling to burn to the edges even after an hour of burning, and I had to help them along with some tin foil which helped them to burn evenly.
Scent-wise, the most confusing was Cedar Stack - I can't pick up any cedar or woody notes in this; it smells mostly fruity and isn't dissimilar to Baies. It's pleasant and not sickly sweet, but it's not the cedar, juniper, sawdust and white musk aroma that was advertised. Hinoki Fantome sticks more to what it says on the tin and has a slightly perfumed (presumably from the jasmine) but strong hinoki scent - it's burning wood, Feu de Bois-adjacent but a little bit more interesting. St. Al follows a similar template: it's an unmistakably sandalwood centre but with some interesting notes surrounding it that translate as sweetness and warmth.
The set of three mini candles comes in chic, minimal pale pink & black cardboard packaging (box, insert and sleeve are all card, there's no plastic) that would make a great housewarming present or a gift for someone who's into cosy scents. The brand feels like a middle ground between more everyday candle brands like the PF Candle core range, and something more high end like DS & Durga or Cire Trudon, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice candle that's not *too* nice to actually burn. These particular three scents don't feel as complex or unusual as some brands in the same price range (£30-£40 for a full size candle), and I'm not sure I'd personally buy a full size of any (in that range I'd go for the superior scents of La Montana or Field Apothecary). However, I'd be interested to try more scents from the brand if they were to introduce individual mini candles, not just discovery sets.
I had a whiff of Hinoki Fantome while at a friend's house and was instantly hooked. Realising there was a selection that met some of the smells I was after (specifically cedar and sandalwood), the Boy Smells was a no-brainer. Been very satisfied with these new smells in my home. Personally the Hinoki comes out on top between the 3, but the Cedar Stack and St. Al are equally pleasant in their own right.
These scents have been well paired, all on the smokey side with lovely depth, My favourite is Cedar Stack. Burn evenly and the fragrance lingers well after it has been blown out.
Beautiful, complex, smokey scents. Feel very sophisticated and transportive. But I can only really smell them when I sniff the unlit candles. When I light them, and await their smell to envelop me, it invariably doesn't. I can't smell them. They don't fill the space. Perhaps it's because they're so tiny. Perhaps there is a deeper fault with this product. It's heartbreaking because the scents themselves are perfect, the design can't be faulted... if only I could smell them.
