Pine Grove Travel Tin Candle
We’re hardcore believers in forest bathing. When you walk in the woods, trees emit phytochemicals (essential oils), reducing blood pressure and anxiety. While we can’t promise that this candle will do the same, it doesn’t hurt to give it a try. For a little nature therapy at home, we’ve mixed fresh pine with notes of soft amber and sandalwood.
Not everyone is into commitment, which is why we made these candles. Created for the minimalists and the fragrance fickle, our 50mL and 100mL travel tins are the perfect way to trial a new fragrance. They’re mini in size, but not in scent — you can expect them to burn strong for 20 to 30 hours.
Fun fact: Soot was the original contouring makeup, used by actors back in the 16th century. Now that we’ve got Sephora for that, there’s no need for sooty residue in your life. That’s why we use sustainable slow-burning soy wax — not only will your Lucian candle last longer than an Elizabethan stage production, it’s also soot-free.
Some tips to make the most of your candle:
- Real quick, trim your wick! Listen, we know the extra three seconds it takes to find scissors is annoying, but you’ll thank us later. Studies have shown trimming increases the lifespan of your candle by up to 15%. About 2mm to 5mm should do the trick.
- Settle in and enjoy. To avoid the “tunnel effect,” the first time you light your candle burn it for at least three hours, until the wax is melted to the edges, or until you’ve binge-watched three episodes of MAFS. (We won’t tell.)
- Save your breath. To reduce smoke, don’t blow out your candle. Instead, use a spoon (or a wick dipper, if you’re fancy like that) to submerge the wick into the wax pool.
