Don’t let the name put you off – this candle is a beautiful blend of rich sweet tobacco, warm spices, smokey oak and ebony and a hint of cognac. It is a popular choice for men, and most certainly does not smell of dirty ashtray!
Made with Rapeseed and Coconut Wax, this candle should burn for at least 35 hours.
Caring for your candle
To avoid “tunneling” (when your candle burns down the middle, leaving large amounts of unmelted wax around the edge), burn your candle until the melt pool reaches the edge of the tin – will take between 3-4 hours. You should do this the first two (2) times you use your candle, helping to avoid creating the barriers which prevent the wax melting to the edge.
Please don’t burn this candle for more than four (4) hours at a time, or you run the risk of the wick falling over and extinguishing. If that happens, the wax will set around and over the wick, and you will have to dig it out to find it and may not be able to light it again.
To get the longest burn possible out of your candle, which should be up to 35 hours, always keep the wick trimmed short. Keep the candle out of drafts and always remove the “mushroom” that may develop on the top of the wick. Your candle should not soot (throw off black smoke) while they are burning. If you notice this, extinguish your candle immediately. Once cool, trim the wick and check the candle is not in a draft. Never burn your candle under curtains or near anything else flammable.
