Trim your wick to 5mm before lighting. When lighting your candle for the first time, leave it lit for 3-4 hours to ensure a full, even melt pool and prevent tunneling. Store candles out of sunlight when not in use to avoid discolouration (does not affect burn quality).
Keep out of reach from children and pets. Never leave a candle burning for more than 4 hours, and never leave it unattended. Candles should only be burned on a stable, heat-proof surface, away from anything that can catch fire (curtains, books, clothing etc).
Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax. When there is 5mm of wax left in the bottom of the container, extinguish the candle and do not relight. The bottom of the container will become too hot if you do not follow this step.
The fragrances may contain allergens. All known allergens are listed on the underside of the candle packaging. The allergen warnings may apply to you if you have asthma or other allergies.

The scent and the Candle Container both are amazing, very compact. It seems to be lasting long than the other candles I've used so far.
Picked this out because I was intrigued by the name and the combination of scents - can confirm it's every bit as quirky and irresistible as the March girls themselves!
This candle smells amazing and I'm so obsessed with the fact its based around one of my favourite books!
