"THIS BRAND IS
SO EXCITING"

Within weeks of launching (October 2022), MIXMY was thrilled to be featured alongside Cire Trudon, Diptyque, Aqua di Parma, Jo Loves and Neom in Alice du Parcq’s Instagram Live on ‘the churchiest perfumes and candles imaginable – from smoky, smouldering and filthy gorgeous to mellow, spiritual and cosy’.

Alice is the god (an apt accolade considering her feature is on churchy scents!) of fragrance, having spent 20 years writing fragrance pieces for every major press publication going.

“This brand is so exciting”, says Alice about MIXMY SCENT.

Alice goes on to describe MIXMY’s 5. WOOD/SMOULDER PRIMARY CANDLE: “This is like a leather jacket that your teenage crush puts over your shoulders when you’re watching bonfire night together. It’s got this really dark, sexy, grrrr grit to it. It’s a little bit filthy – we love that! – and it’s just so, so good. Very smouldery, very smoky, a little bit sooty, leather tobacco, and the words wood/smoulder are just perfect. They’ve nailed it with that description.”

The amazing review goes on. Too much to write here!

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.
