"Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination" ~ Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde enjoyed his fair share of flamboyance and scandal in late Victorian society. He is best remembered for his wit, social criticism and humour.

How long do Paddywax candles burn? The burn time of our candles varies depending on the vessel and the environment in which the candle is burning. But as a rule of thumb: every 28g of wax gives 6-7 hours of burn time. So a 170g candle would last up to 43 hours.
What are the best practices for burning my new Paddywax candle? Make sure you burn your candle for 3-4 hours the first time around. You want to make sure your wax pool extends to both ends of the vessel before extinguishing. This will avoid tunnelling. You should also be sure to trim your wick to 5mm.
How do I get the last 5mm of wax out of my container so I can repurpose it? You can either a) put the candle in the freezer overnight and the wax should easily pop out the next day, or b) run hot water into the candle to melt the remaining wax so you can scoop it out.
How do I repurpose the candle vessel after the burn life is over? The possibilities are endless! We've tried everything from a succulent planter, pencil cup, knick knack holder, bathroom canister, and more.
