sensuality of sandalwood
Unknown in Europe before 1840, this noble spiced wood had quite a pedigree by the end of the century. Named ‘candana’ in Sanskrit, or ‘sandal’ in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for the hair and body. A remedy against anxiety, Sandalwood still billows today, seamlessly embedded in the smoke of Asian incense.

Leave your candle burning until the entire top layer is liquefied, and do that every time you light it. This will allow you to fully enjoy your Cire Trudon candle until the end, by preventing the wax from tunneling. You also want to center the wick back into its original position from time to time (before the wax sets again) and trim it before and after every use
Your candle should not be burned for more than 3 hours at a time during the first third, then for 1 to 2 hours afterward.
