  1. Can FO Burn Off?

    So an update to my original post. After test burning twice on my 3rd test I could start getting a really good HT. That seems to start happening about 1/4 the way down. What I originally thought was that the flames were getting too hot and possibly burning off the scent before it could fill the space. Now I believe it wasn’t getting hot enough and after the flames get down into the jar it is creating more heat and the fragrance is able to throw. That’s my thought. Does anyone else have an opinion? Just a reminder on what I’m testing: 10oz whiskey tumbler/ using .75oz of FO/ 464 Wax/ htp62 wicks
  2. Can FO Burn Off?

    I have never been able get a nice clean full melt pool with a single wick so that is why I have 2. I’m currently already selling this candle jar and had tested it out very well. Now as I’m testing a new scents I’m having issues with HT.
  3. Can FO Burn Off?

    That seems more like what could be happening. Maybe I’ll try a CD wick since that has worked for me in the past. Thanks!
  4. Can FO Burn Off?

    Hi Moonshine! Thank you for responding. I am aware of the 464 issue but will definitely read through the soy wax posts. I have another jar that I use and have been testing scents with it and testing is doing fine. That’s why this is so confusing to me. However I am using CD wicks with this other jar. Maybe I will try CD wicks in my whiskey jar that is causing the issue.
  5. Hi there! I’m currently testing a 9oz whisky style tumbler with a diameter of 3in. I am using 464 and HTP62 wicks. I’m using .75oz of fragrance oil. I double the wick the jar. My issue is when I’m testing. At the beginning I can smell the fragrance but after it gets to a full melt pool I can’t smell it anymore. Any thoughts?
  6. Hey guys! I contacted Candle Science this afternoon and was told that they will not be impacted by this fire as of now. If anything should impact then in the future they will notify by email and social media so that customers will know.
  7. Just placed my order for the entire year. 😝

    Yeah I saw them but the containers I’m looking at in the link are gallon size jugs. The ones at BC only go up to 16oz but thanks for the response.
  9. Hello all and Happy New Year! I want to know if this type of container is ok to store fragrance oils in? I’d like to start mixing large batches of my FO blends and these look perfect but not sure if this type of plastic is ok for FO. It’s made of HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) Thanks for any help/ advice you have. https://m.uline.com/h5/r/www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-10748/Jugs/F-Style-Jugs-1-Gallon-White

    Bump... Anyone?

    Hi there! I’m lookin looking for a great pear FO that works great in soy wax. I’ve tried PEAKS Bartlett Pear in the past and while it’s good it takes awhile to get a medium HT from it. Anyone tried Filmore’s French Pear? I’ve seen that one.
  12. Need Red Clove replacement

    Ditto on the Winter Wonderful.
  13. Looking for Peak replacements

    JulieB is not the owner of Keystone. Remember Julie was one of the suppliers when Peak first closed that was willing to dupe some of the fragrances. I hope I’m not wrong in my statement.
  14. FAVORITE Halloween / Fall Fragrance OILS

    More fresh/ citrus scents over all. Unique combinations. During fall/ Holiday I sell a lot of Nutmeg + Ginger and Coffee Shoppe. Those are my only 2 “food” type scents. Lots and Balsam and balsam blends.
  15. FAVORITE Halloween / Fall Fragrance OILS

    Testing Toasted Pumpkin Spice from CS today. 464 soy with a 12 day cure and pretty decent already in the living room. I’m just testing for fun. Atlanta just doesn’t get into Pumpkin scents at all. Lol!
