||How Much Fragrance Should I Use?
The candle market is an ever changing market
in terms of fragranced candles. Not more then 5 years ago 2%-3%
was considered a lot of
fragrance. There are now candle companies adding 8%-10% to their
candles and calling them super fragranced candles. In general, most
candle companies are adding 4%-6% fragrance to their containers and
votives. In pillars it runs around 3%-5%.
However, we would also like to caution candle
makers from relying totally on percentages. Scent companies
offer different levels of concentration on the fragrances they
sell. In instances where
the concentration level of the fragrance is higher, you will be able
to use less and still achieve the same smell from the candle.
