Imperfect candles

I don’t see anything wrong with these candles at all! So happy to have a real candle without the BS additives! Thank you!!

No scents

Scents were very subtle if any scent at all.

Very subtle

I got the coffee fragrance and it just didn’t work for me. Too subtle you can’t even smell it

Melissa VanAmeron
Great value

These are a great value! Especially if you are not picky about scents or can’t decide on one.

Autumn Johnson
Imperfect seconds

I got 2 of each candle (blue tansy & the lime mint kind) & I LOVE them. Very springy scents so perfect for this time of year. The candles may not look “perfect” but they sure do burn perfectly. I’ll definitely be buying again whenever this sale comes around once more!

Make Your Candle Last

We want you to have a great experience with your Fontana Candle so we are sharing tips we have discovered to create an optimal burn!

Because Fontana Candles are hand-made from natural ingredients, slight variations are to be expected. Beeswax expands and contracts, resulting in small cracks.

Always store your candle in a cool, dry place at room temperature and keep it away from direct sunlight and high humidity. Be sure to store your candle with the lid on.

Burning Instructions:

We want you to have a great experience with your Fontana Candle so we are sharing tips we have discovered to create an optimal burn!

#1 Burn your candle for long enough....

#2 But not too long!

#3 Keep those wicks short! We aren't joking, it solves like 90% of burn issues.

The first time you burn your candle is extremely important: allow the candle to burn until the melted wax reaches the edge of the container.
This should take between 1 and 2 hours in our 9 oz candle. Burning the candle this length of time will prevent the wax from tunneling on the side of the jar. Candles that have tunneling have severely reduced burn time. The burn time will also be severely reduced if you burn your candles for longer periods of time.

It is also important to limit your burn time to approximately 3 to 4 hours, especially when burning the smaller 6 ounce tins. The wax and container get extremely hot. If your wick becomes unstuck from the bottom of the jar or tin and travels to the edge, please stop burning it immediately. The jar can shatter if this occurs for too long. This typically occurs at the very end of the candle's burn. Please read the Candle Warning label located on the bottom of the candle.

We have found that the optimal burn for our candles is achieved with a short wick. Our wicks burn best when they are trimmed to approximately 1/4." This will require you to periodically trim the wick.This can be done by snapping the burnt ends off with your fingers. If your flame gets larger than 1 ½”, please extinguish the candle and allow it to cool. Once your candle cools, you can trim your wick to approximately ¼” to ½”. Remove the wick trimmings before relighting your candle.

Discard your candle once ½ inch of wax is remaining in the jar.
