We love the feeling of unwrapping a new luxury-scented candle, followed by that magical moment when the flame first flickers and fragrance fills the room. Like you, we’re always excited to simply light and enjoy, however before you do, follow these easy steps to guarantee the very best luxury candle experience, time after time:

  • Our MIXMY luxury scented Primary Candles are handmade using the best quality fragrance ingredients blended within a unique vegetable wax recipe to ensure a clean and even burn.  Due to the composition of the natural wax blend, you may find that small holes appear in the wax once it cools. This is completely normal and will not affect the fragrance diffusion or performance.
  • When burning your scented candle for the first time, allow to burn until the surface wax melts completely. This is important, as it will prevent the wax from tunnelling on future burns.
  • Each usage thereafter, to reach the best diffusion of scent, burn your scented candle long enough for all the surface wax to become liquid, usually between two and three hours, no more than four. Note that burning for any longer will not increase the strength of the fragrance.
  • Refills only – if after blowing out the flame, the wick has moved, simply re-centre while the wax is still liquid.
  • Before relighting your scented candle, always trim the wick to around 5mm, carefully removing the ‘mushroom’ end if there is one. This will avoid unnecessary smoke and help prevent soot from appearing on the inside of the candle glass.
  • Using a candle snuffer to extinguish your scented candle will help prevent the blackened end of the wick from falling into the liquid wax and discolouring it.
  • Always burn on a level, heat-resistant surface.

In honour of National Fragrance Week, let me tell you a little more about MIXMY fragrances - whilst the idea of burning two candles together isn’t exactly rocket science; the art of creating a collection of fragrances that combine with each other to create considered new fragrances isn’t far off!
We spent a year working very closely with world-class Perfumers to create our debut collection of fragrances that each smell incredible on their own, yet combine to create whole new fragrance combinations.
We then spent another year conducting countless burn trials to determine the perfect wick and ideal fragrance concentration for each candle. Due to the complexity of each candle formulation needing to combine beautifully alongside each other - without overpowering or underperforming alongside other fragrances - every candle has been meticulously formulated to guarantee the very best quality diffusion, ensuring a seamless synergy of scents that work beautifully together whatever the combination.
Spring has sprung! I spent the weekend power-washing the paving slabs. An awful job, but oh so satisfying! Inch by inch, slowly removing the green slime which had accumulated over the Winter to reveal a fresh, new garden.
To me, Spring is all about reinvigoration, a renewed energy, anticipation of the warmer and longer days ahead, the planning of garden soirees with friends (in the hope it doesn’t rain!); and with that comes the desire for a change in home fragrance to reflect the change in season.
The beauty of MIXMY Scented Candles is that they can be combined to create new fragrance combinations, or Scent Destinations™. No need to go out and buy new scented candles. Just combine different Primary Candles to create whole new fragrances. No more wasted, half burn candles because they no longer suit the season or your mood!
