Autumn / Winter Scenting

MIXMY was created so scented candles no longer fall out of favour. Whether this is because the seasons change and your summery scented candle is no longer appropriate for those long wintery nights; your mood changes and you crave a different scent; or you simply become bored of it.

We don’t believe scented candles should just be used at specific times of the year – like citrus and floral scents in the summer and woody ones in the winter. MIXMY fragrances have been meticulously designed to combine with each other, allowing you to mix and match your MIXMY Primary Candles to create whole new fragrance combinations, or Scent Destinations™, to suit every time of the year, every mood and every occasion.

A palette of MIXMY Primary Candles allows you to create many different Scent Destinations™.

The leaves have turned and the nights are drawing in. Autumn/Winter is well and truly upon us.

Here is Vicky’s favourite Autumn/Winter fragrance combination:

“At this time of year, it has to be #SecludedBrambleWood which you get by burning 2. BERRY / GREEN and 5. WOOD / SMOULDER together.

The earthy green leaf notes of 2. BERRY / GREEN come to the fore, whilst the tangy berry notes are subtly interwoven with the sweet smokiness of 5. WOOD / SMOULDER.

I close my eyes and I’m transported to an ancient wood where wild brambles lay beneath towering woodland trees. The peaceful sound of rain is pattering on rich, green leaves. Damp, earthy moss surrounds the dying embers of a camp fire cloaked in a haze of sweet smoke.

If I were to use one word to describe the combined scent of #SecludedBrambleWood, it would be ‘peaceful’.

I invite you to enjoy #SecludedBrambleWood this Autumn.”

I fancied something fresh, green and fruity today… so I’ve been burning 2. BERRY / GREEN in the kitchen.

TIPS: How to Prevent Tunnelling

If you’ve experienced ‘tunnelling’, where the candle burns down the centre leaving a large amount of unused wax at the sides, it could be because you’re not burning it for long enough, particularly on the very first burn.
 
To get a clean, even burn, you should burn your candle long enough for the surface wax to melt completely to the edges - usually between 2 and 4 hours with MIXMY candles. 
 
This is especially important on the very first burn, because if you don’t, you’re almost guaranteed to get tunnelling. This is because wax has ‘memory’ - so even when wax appears to have solidified, it will continue to harden over time. Wax that has melted and cooled again today, will always be softer than wax that has been left for longer. 
So if you light your new candle and blow it out before the wax has melted to the edges, the next time you light it, only the softer wax in the centre will continue to melt as it requires less thermal energy than the much harder wax around the edge - resulting in tunnelling.
