GEORGE & EDI - NZ Candle Makers - Our Fragrances Explained

At GEORGE & EDI we are fascinated with fragrance and the ability it has to transform your home and your mood.

We believe fragrance can take you on a journey, that smell is a memory and a feeling.  We love the process of creating fragrances that are elegant, lush, adventurous and a little intriguing, so you can have fun and layer your home, or self, in a fragrance that suits your mood and personal style

You may have heard of marketing terms like ‘triple scented’ but at G&E we like to keep things simple.  Natural soy wax will only hold a maximum fragrance loading of around 10 -12% before it starts to effect how the candle will burn, can cause smoking and oil will leach out of the wax.  So we test all of our fragrances thoroughly and then load to that threshold, ensuring you get the best perfumed soy candle possible

Fragrance Key

Each fragrance has a different strength and hot throw, so to help you choose if a fragrance is right for you, we have provided the following guide.  Please remember that the size of your candle also plays a role, a large candle has  more melt surface and will give off a stronger throw than a medium or small candle – so always pick the right sized candle for your room/space

A bold fragrance that will fill the room with its scent throw. It likes to be the life of the party and to charm you - perfect for a medium sized room to a large area, where the fragrance throw will go far
A more robust fragrance that enjoys getting some attention and being at the heart of the party, but doesn’t need the limelight
A little shy, this fragrance doesn’t need to announce their arrival but you will enjoy their understated company - best suited to smaller rooms and spaces
