Scent vs Space

Small to medium candles will rarely fill a large sized room with fragrance. Tall ceilings over 8 feet will require larger or multiple candles for the desired amount of fragrance.

Room Size Guide based on 8 ft ceilings with minimal to no drafts:

  • Large Jars = up to 576 sq ft room
  • Medium Jars = up to 256 sq ft
  • Small / Mini Tumbler = up to 100 sq ft
  • Votive/Tealight Pairs = up to 64 sq ft
  • SoyTarts / Wax Potpourri Melts = up to 576 sq ft

If your candle has been burning for at least an hour and you still don’t feel your soy candle is fragrant, try leaving the room where the candle is burning for a few moments and then come back inside (or walking outside to fresh air). Our sense of smell has a memory too and “gets used to” fragrances when exposed to them for any length of time. Try putting your soy candle in a bathroom or smaller space to determine if the candle truly has limited or no scent. All candles are fragrant when burned in appropriate conditions and in appropriate sized rooms.

Drafts and/or extreme temperature changes can cause your candle to burn uneven and the fragrance will disperse leaving a poor aroma. Try moving your candle to a draft-free location if you experience uneven burning.

Be sure there is enough air circulation around your soy candle (do not burn candles in a tight area such as on a bookshelf) as you will not get a good aroma.
