[Blooming Osmanthus] Candle
The candle that's a keeper!
Why Is It Burn-Worthy?
While this candle smells really nice, it's the heavyweight Brass vessel that has me swooning! Plus, it contains perfume-grade fragrance oils aka it's potent as hell. It's a small candle, but trust me on this, sometimes good things come in small sizes!
It should also be noted that Tatine is a company that uses perfume-grade fragrance oils. Meaning they have access to a larger variety of super potent fragrances. In other words, you won't find these scents in just any ol' candle and if you have a sensitive nose, I'd place them in a larger area.
If you're anything like me, you probably have no idea what an Osmanthus is, or what it smells like. Well, it smells like a plant (I know, super helpful of me). But when I take a sniff of this candle, it reminds me of fresh-cut bushes and flowers. It's almost as if someone put the smell of a garden into a candle, but without making it too fruity or floral. I'm thinking the coriander helps give it a more unique and grounded earthiness.

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.
