How Are Imperial Candles Different From Ordinary Candles?
If you’ve ever bought or been gifted one of our candles, you’ll already know what makes us stand apart. But, if you’re new to Imperial Candles or browsing our website for the first time, you’re probably asking yourself “how are these different from ordinary candles?” In fact, this is one of the most common questions customers ask when they first discover us.
Whether you’re new to the world of scented candles or are a veritable aficionado, Imperial Candles offers a world of excitement to uncover. With new scents being released throughout the year and our team continually scouting for new jewellery to wow our customers, there’s no such thing as “ordinary” here.
While we could bend your ear about all the fabulous reasons Imperial Candles are different from ordinary candles and why customers come back to us time and time again, there are two qualities that set us apart. Above all, what makes Imperial Candles so special is the element of surprise and our commitment to quality.
The Candle With A Hidden Surprise
The ultimate 2-in-1 gift, at Imperial Candles we don’t stop short at creating a beautiful scent – we go a step further. Burning an Imperial Candle is an experience; one which continues long after the flame dies out.
Not only is your home filled with exquisite fragrance, whether that be the floral bouquet of Midnight Jasmine or the fruity gourmand of Cherry Vanilla, but you also receive a stunning piece of jewellery to keep forever.
The reveal of your jewel is an exhilarating moment; watch the wax melt away as the glimmer of your treasure appears. With endless combinations of scents and jewellery, you can enjoy the thrill with each and every candle you purchase.
All of our jewellery has been handpicked for its beauty, and with values ranging from £10-£2000, the anticipation of discovering what’s hidden inside is a truly unique experience.
Inspiring Quality, Imperial Candles
We believe that in order to get the best results, you need to invest in the best raw materials. Each of our candles is freshly handmade to order in the UK, using renewable soy wax and 100% cotton wicks.
You may wonder why we use soy wax in our candles, while many high street companies continue to use paraffin wax. Well, paraffin wax is a by-product from the refinement of fossil fuel and releases carcinogenic chemicals such as acetone and benzene into the air when burned – no thanks! Soy wax, on the other hand, comes from a renewable resource, is natural and is also biodegradable, making it much more environmentally friendly than it’s crude cousin.
Not only is it better for the planet to use soy wax, but it also burns slower and cleaner than paraffin, giving you a longer-lasting candle that you can enjoy week after week (our Classic Collection have a burn time of approximately 120 hrs).
