Elevating Quality: What Sets Superior Candles Apart

Candles are more than just sources of light; they set the mood and ambiance of any space. However, not all candles are created equal. Understanding what makes a good candle, including aspects like scent throw, pooling, scent longevity, and mushrooming, is essential for choosing the perfect option. Kettleby Kitchen takes candle craftsmanship to a new level, using superior ingredients and expert techniques to ensure an exceptional experience.

Scent Throw

Definition: Scent throw refers to the ability of a candle to disperse fragrance throughout a room effectively. Kettleby Kitchen candles boast an impressive scent throw, thanks to carefully selected fragrances and premium wax blends. Factors: Various factors influence scent throw, including the type of wax used, the quality of fragrance oils, and the size and design of the candle. Importance: A robust scent throw is crucial for creating the desired ambiance and enhancing the overall experience of the candle.


Purpose: Pooling occurs when the wax of a candle melts evenly across the surface, ensuring consistent fragrance release. Kettleby Kitchen candles are expertly crafted to achieve optimal pooling, maximizing the scent's potency and longevity when the burn instructions are followed. Benefits: Even pooling results in a more efficient burn, allowing the candle to last longer while maintaining its aroma.

Scent Longevity

Factors: The longevity of a candle's scent depends on various factors, including the quality of ingredients, the size of the candle, and environmental conditions. Kettleby Kitchen candles are designed to offer long-lasting fragrance, allowing you to enjoy their captivating scents for extended periods. Tips: To maximize scent longevity, keep your candle away from drafts and trim the wick before each use.


Definition: Mushrooming occurs when a candle's wick forms a mushroom-shaped tip during burning. While common, excessive mushrooming can affect the candle's performance and aesthetics. Causes: Factors such as the type of wick, the composition of the wax, and environmental conditions can contribute to wick mushrooming. Solutions: Kettleby Kitchen addresses wick mushrooming through meticulous wick selection and quality control measures, ensuring a clean and consistent burn every time.  Again be sure to trim your wick between burns and burn for no longer than four hours at a time.
