Care Information

To maximise your candles burn time, always allow your candle to become molten across the entire surface before extinguishing the flame.

After burning, trim your candles wick to just below 1cm, do not allow the excess wick to fall back into the molten wax.

Instead of blowing out your candle, snuff it to prevent the wick from smouldering.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice looking candle Really like these candles - burn evenly and look good. Only quibble is that they don't quite fit our candle-holders. It's a shame there isn't a version with a slightly smaller diameter. 27 October 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by No fuss reasonably priced candles We have been buying these John Lewis basic Ivory pillar candles for over 18 months now. They are well priced,have limited packaging, and burn for hours without a pungent smell. They brighten up our living room and because they are not overpriced we use them every evening. Wonderful product. Thank you 03 March 2015
