    • Strange question, but does anyone have any suggestions on how to add an overall slightly sweet fragrance to wax? Or if any wax naturally emits a sweet smell?   I’m having some success making my candles but I find most of them lack a certain base sweetness( if that makes sense at all...)
    • I think shoppers would want to pick up the candle and sniff it to see what it smells like, so I also think those covers would get bent up, smudged, etc.  A few ago, I sewed some little fabric covers for some jars, kind of country style, and I gave some as gifts, but I placed a little tag on it that said to not replace the cover after the candle has burned until it is completely reset and cool.  I know people would be aware to remove the paper cover before lighting, but I think it should still say that on the label just in case.  With the cover, the hang tag, the label -- that's an awful lot of labeling, imo, and it all says the same thing, I kind of wonder about that.
    • @Sarah S does clothespins smell like Gain, Island Fresh Gain, Tide, Downy Fresh, Downy Blue, Snuggle, etc... ?     I was going to get a 16 oz of Flannel Sheets, but seen that you think that Clothespins is the best laundry I'm now rethinking what one to get in the # size.  Please LMK 😊
    • I'm a candle admirer not maker, I would totally peel up the corner to look or smell underneath.   I won't now that's has been mentioned, but yeah until today I would have.
    • The best Sandalwood Vanilla I ever used was Adobe Soap Works but they are no longer in business and I'm hoarding the last amount of oil I have.  I have heard that BNL Sandalwood Vanilla is nice but I found it quite light compared to Adobe's version.
