[Amber Nights] Candle
The candle you'll want to light up once the sun goes down!
Why Is It Burn-Worthy?
Ok, so wow! This candle is definitely a mood-starter if you know what I mean (wink wink)! Freres Branchiaux isn't one to shy away from jampacked fragrance blends, as you can see in the spec info below. And once again, they've created candle magic! This candle may appear as a blend of completely random scents, but still makes one hell of a fragrance.
This won't be easy, but I think the best way to describe this candle would be to imagine a bowl. Then, in that bowl, you mix together cologne, the smell of waterfalls, a splash of citrusy zest, and a light dusting of wood/herbs. It's masculine, it's refreshing, it's grounded, it's sexy. You're probably thinking "that sounds like it's a lot of things", and you're right. But these are the types of complexities you get when you layer scents the way they do.
If it helps at all, I can say this candle smells quite similar to our [Amber & Moss] candle if you've ever tried it. However, this candle has a higher focus on the cologne components. Personally, I would burn Amber & Moss during the day, since it's lighter with fresher/cleaner vibes. Then, once the sun goes down, switch over to Amber Nights to enjoy the sexier side of things. Doing this will allow you to match the candle to the mood, without completely changing scent profiles.

Candle Sizing Guide
5 oz. or Smaller
These candles perform best in areas that are small or that are in your proximity, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or on your nightstand.
6 oz. - 10 oz.
These candles perform best in medium sized enclosed areas, such as a bedroom, home office or even a spacious master bathroom.
11 oz. or Larger
These candles perform best in larger spaces such as kitchens, living rooms, or master bedrooms.
Single Wick vs. Multi-Wick
In addition to candle size, wicks matter too. Typically, a single-wick candle performs better in a single room, while multi-wick candles are better suited for multiple rooms or open floor plans.
Candle Care [Tips You Should Know]
1) Trim Your Wick
Before each burn, you must trim your wick to 1/4 inch. This stabilizes the flame, which helps prevent soot/smoke and wick mushrooming, creating a safer, cleaner & better burn.
2) The Pool Rule
Before extinguishing your candle, you should allow it to burn long enough to completely melt the entire surface of the wax. This is called a full melt pool and it's the best way to prevent candle tunneling. Tunneling happens when you have wax that doesn't get melted, so it continues to cling to the sides of the vessel, creating a tunnel effect the more and more you use the candle. It's a waste of wax and should be avoided if possible.
3) Burn Responsibly
Make sure you place your candle in an area that is at least a few feet away from drapes, curtains or other flammable objects.
When burning candles near kids or pets, make sure it is out of reach for them.
Always keep an eye on a burning candle and never leave the house when a candle is lit.
Candles are not meant to be burned for longer than 4 hours. Do not leave it burning all day and be sure to extinguish any candles before going to sleep.
Once a candle is down to its last 1/2 inch of wax, the candle is done. Continuing to burn a candle beyond this point may cause the vessel to crack and is considered hazardous.
