St Al Candle
Boysmells, The name of ST. AL is a play on the French term for sandalwood — Santal. This candle has powerful notes of holy woods and exotic florals, layered with undertones of frankincense. All of these are muted into a dense argil tone of white clay. To the nose, it’s a sanctified commingling of protective sandalwood, clove flower, oud and ylang-ylang with a dampness of rare and ancient earth. Complex, quietly sophisticated and steeped with history.
Coconut and beeswax blend with a braided cotton wick, in a glossy black glass tumbler. Comes in an embossed matte pink carton.
Trim: Prior to each lighting, trim the wick to 1/4” for a clean and smoke-free burn.
Burn: On your first light, allow the entire surface of wax to melt — A minimum of 3 hours. There will be some “wax wall hanging,” but that’s normal. For all burns, never let it go on for more than 4 hours.
Center: Ensure the wick is centred. After each burn, adjust the wick while the wax is still molten.
Upcycle: When a 1/4” of wax is left in your candle, it’s time to upcycle the glass.
Always remove the remaining wax. Pro cleaning tip — put the candle in the freezer until the wax is frozen, then said wax should pop out easily.
