  1. You are blending the 3 waxes? If so, increase the % of the softer wax.
  2. There are way too many variables in candle making to follow generalizations like that one. I like my candles to burn clean, cool and slow while also being fragrant and ending with a clean jar. That's the goal. The 1 inch per hr thing means nothing to me.
  3. Good to know about Cierra. I need some things. Delays have been killing us lately.
  4. I'm ordering a pound of this one, for sure.
  5. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2.5 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 12 Cold Throw: Good (7) before the 1st burn, but after burning all I can smell is the burned fuel smell Hot Throw: Strong fuel smell (I cannot detect any *orange* coming through) Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. This was a great orange scent OOB, but burning was a major disappointment. I wicked down twice from CD 12 trying to bring out the orange but no luck.
  6. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 10 Cold Throw: Very Good (9 out of 10) Hot Throw: Very Good (9 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. This one is nice and neutral and filled the room pretty quickly.
  7. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 12 Cold Throw: Excellent (10 out of 10) Hot Throw: Excellent (10 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. This one is super strong.
  8. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 10 Cold Throw: Good (7 out of 10) Hot Throw: Good (7 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. This one is a delicate, clean scent, a bit soapy. Not super strong & in-your-face, but a nice background scent. Also nice blended with Kickin Kumquat.
  9. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 12 Cold Throw: Excellent (9 out of 10) Hot Throw: Excellent (9 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. Customers loved this one and we got a lot of compliments on it while it was burning. Great dupe!
  10. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 10 Cold Throw: Excellent (10 out of 10) Hot Throw: Excellent (10 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. Great citrus, no fuel smell. I started with CD 12 but wicked down to a CD 10 and got a more true scent. Love this one!
  11. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 12 Cold Throw: Excellent (9 out of 10) Hot Throw: Excellent (9 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. Upscale scent that will appeal to lovers of currant or fig scents.
  12. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 10 Cold Throw: Excellent (9 out of 10) Hot Throw: Excellent (9 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft. This one is a bit more upscale than a *sugar* plum or sweet fruit scent. It reminds me a little of currant scents.
  13. Wax Used: 464 Fragrance Load (%): 7% Cure Time: 2 weeks Wax Additives: None Container: Medium (9oz) Straight Sided Jar, 2.83" Diameter Wick Used: CD 12 Cold Throw: Very Good (8 out of 10) Hot Throw: Very Good (8 out of 10) Morphing: None Fade: None Other notes: Tested in office/store, approx. 350 sq. ft.

  14. I made my living for years selling items on ebay and Amazon, and I've been down this road more than once. If it were me, I would refund the purchase price of the items she claims were lost and let it go. Were it a more expensive item, I'd be inclined to dig in my heels, but IME a low cost item isn't worth the time it takes to fight a claim. If you are new to online selling, you'll find yourself revising your terms several times before you cover all the bases. Actually, I take that back. You never really cover all the bases, because just when you think you've heard it all...
