  1. Hi Sarah, Thanks for the quick response! I’m using a coconut/apricot blend. I liked the all natural concept and all the great things I’ve heard about coconut wax. I’ve read that coconut waxes are more luxurious which made me try working with it. It’s a nice wax, but most important to me is quality. I’m not so worried about price, but rather trying to find a niche segment without using colorants and keeping it as natural as possible. I may need to go back to the drawing board. I suppose a luxury brand has other factors to it other than just what is considered to be “luxury” wax. Perhaps I bring more of a luxury feel in with my packaging. I am by no means trying to charge a “luxury” price, I just want my customers to feel like they are getting a quality product that evokes happiness. I’ve researched a ton so this is only the first time actually starting to make products and test. I read a lot about a para-soy blend that had stellar reviews that I am eager to try!
  2. Hi all. I have been testing a coconut wax blend for 0.5 oz melts. I understand this is a softer wax but the application in a condiment cup has worked very well. The problem I am having is throw. CT and HT are phenomenal but only lasts for about 8 hrs. It’s not a very long scent life. Large melt companies last for days! Is this normal? Could it be the fragrance oil or is it an issue with the wax? I’m trying to develop a more luxurious line of melts and really like how the coconut wax is working but how can I market them as luxury without a scent life that lasts for longer than 8 hrs?
  3. Thank you all for the list of suppliers! I am using a paraffin wax blend. 60% IGI-4630 and 40% IGI-4625. Since it's almost Summer I am focusing on tropical/summer scents. As well, I am a sucker for unique scents/blends. Again, I appreciate all the help! It is wonderful to have a resource to pick the brains of experienced candle makers.
  4. Hello Everyone, I am new to making candle tarts and soap. I have been in the testing stages for months learning what works and what doesn't. I've had my fair share of fails, but that's how you learn, right? In my research, I found this forum and read many reviews about fragrance oil suppliers. I've tried a couple and was not displeased, however, I'm looking for some recommendations on which suppliers to try. Any insight on suppliers with great fragrance oils would be much appreciated! Thanks for the help and providing some insight to a newbie! -NJ
