Autumn brings with it longer days and darker, cosier evenings, giving the perfect opportunity for us to surround ourselves with comforting fragrances. With Halloween and Bonfire Night just around the corner, it's a wonderful time of year to adorn the home with candles, conjuring a magical, comforting ambience with the soft glow of candlelight.
Candles are a perfect way to conjure mystery and enchantment in your home and here are just some of our favourite autumn fragrances to complement the season:
As the weather outside turns colder and gloomier, it's the perfect time of year to wrap up warm and envelop the senses in soothing aromas. Deep and woody, Sandalwood's rich and warming scent blends subtle notes of fresh eucalyptus, herbal bay leaf and earthy patchouli to imbue homes with a comforting, relaxing ambience. We love the scent of Sandalwood in our Fragranced Mini Bundles at this time of year, and paired with our Matte White Mini Holder, it's the perfect way to enjoy this luxurious scent throughout the home.

While we enjoy these gorgeous cosy evenings it's important to make sure that we're being as safe as possible with our candles. Here are some handy safety tips that we recommend following as you enjoy your St. Eval candles:
1. Ensure the wick is kept trimmed to approximately 5mm in length to control the flame height and burn time. Trimming ensures that the candle will burn evenly, but also helps ensure you will get a nice clean and even burn throughout the lifetime of your candle.
2. Keep the wax pool free of any contaminants. You want to avoid any debris in your molten wax pool, so don’t leave any burnt matches or wick stubs in there as this is a potential fire hazard and can affect the fragrance.
3. Keep the lid on our tin candles when not in use. This prevents dust from settling on the candle.
4. Avoid burning candles in draughty areas. This encourages an even burn and maximises your candles lifetime.
5. Burn candles for 3-4 hours at a time. This achieves optimum burn performance and longevity for your candle.
6. Never leave a burning candle unattended or around children and pets.
