afterburn

It might vary with the wick, but what I've noticed is that afterglow is mainly caused by unburned stuff accumulating at the tip of the wick. Sometimes it's obvious mushrooming and sometimes it's less visible but you can usually see it. That stuff finally burns off when you blow out the candle and produces afterglow and smoke. Wax, additives and fragrance can all contribute.

Thanks Top. I use gel wax no additives. I notice the ones with mushrooms don't often have an afterglow and not much smoke but I didn't like the big mushrooms so I wicked down and double wicked and also used less fo and now I am getting the afterglow. Zinc core by the way. So I was wondering if there was something I need to try different or do I have to put up with one or the other. Mushroom or afterglow.

Thank you
