Candle tips

The aromas around you have the power to influence your mood and emotions, even without you realising. Having a beautiful, aromatic scent setting elevates any space, so we want to share with you our tried and tested tips for getting the most out of your STORIES candles.


Air circulation

Lighting your candles in a space of good air circulation will allow for perfect diffusion of aroma. However, be sure to avoid areas of draft as this can cause sooting and an uneven burn.

The maiden burn

Upon a candles first burn, allow the candle to melt until its top surface is completely covered in melted wax. This establishes the candle's memory for future use as it prevents tunelling and ensures an even burn.

preserving scent longevity

Storing you candles under a glass dome cloche and in a cool, dark place is the best way to retain the vibrancy of a candle's aroma. Having a protective cover over the candles also keeps dust from settling which can affect the quality of the burn.


Fragrances break down and lose quality and intensity when exposed to heat, light, and humidity. It is important to store your favourite perfume bottles in a cool, dry place, away from windows. We would not suggest storing your fragrance in your bathroom as there is often windows, steam & humidity, instead we suggest a closed cupboard or drawer.

If stored correctly fragrance will age in perfect condition, much like a fine wine.
