KOBO Bourbon Soaked Vanilla Pure Soy Candle
- THE STORY
A stunning candle for those who are passionate for remarkable scents.
KOBO pure soy candles are poured by hand in the basement of a converted opera house in downtown Schuylerville, New York. The production is an amazing thing to watch.....the final result extraordinary.
KOBO's Natural Math Collection works with the basic building blocks of scent to create sequences and layers of complex interweaving formulas, the sum of which creates memorable and intricate fragrances.This is an oriental woody fragrance that has a malted barley giving the impression of bourbon. The body of the fragrance is a floral melange of vanilla, violet & iris. The fragrance dries down to a woody base based on an amber and leather accord.
Each unique KOBO candle aroma has been consciously developed to create a multi-dimensional, enriching ambiance. Every hand-poured KOBO candle has been carefully created and tested to burn with maximum efficiency to the bottom. Using clean-burning and non-polluting GMO-free U.S. grown soy and cotton enviro-safe wicks, with the proper care and simple maintenance your candle will perform beautifully and memorably.
For optimum performance, burn candle for 2-5 hours at a time. This will allow the candle to create a wide burn pool and melt evenly. As the candle melts down, it will create a burn pool to the edges of the glass. This is the desired effect.
A successive number of short burns may create a tunneling effect. Tunneling happens when the candle is extinguished after short burns and is not able to create a wide burn pool. If this does happen it can often be set right by leaving the length of the wick longer by not trimming it prior to burning. It also may be necessary to allow the candle to burn longer than usual until the burn pool is widened. Please abide by candles safety standards while burning candles at all times.
- Trim the wick to 3/8# prior to each burn
- Keep out of drafts and rotate periodically
- Keep out of direct sunlight
- Do not ingest
If candle starts to pool to one side more than the other it may be the result of draft, uneven surface or a leaning wick. Remedy this by adjusting the wick to the correct position.
If you are experiencing smoke from the wick, it is most likely due to not trimming. The wicks may give a small degree of smoke when just lit. Once they attain ample heating they will burn without smoke. If smoke persists it is most likely a wick that needs trimming or a breeze that is not allowing ample heat to generate. Following the steps above will maximize the enjoyment of your candle, which can last about 2 years.
KOBO pure soy candles were created by and for those passionate about memorable scents, and the fresh look of the KOBO packaging is a gift so beautiful it need not be wrapped.
KOBO was created in 2006 by Junko Kobori. Originally from Kumamoto in southern Japan, she and her husband spent many years traveling the world before settling in Saratoga Springs, NY. Junko was always struck by the scent of each place, and how absent those fragrances were when a photo of a location is viewed. Yet later, while reminiscing on her travels, the aroma was still very present to her memory. She came to realize that fragrance is one of the key elements to bringing any environment to life, and it is the most often overlooked. Junko began creating scents for her own home that would be as equally memorable to her family and guests as the paintings on the walls, or flavors of the food served. From this the KOBO range was born.
Kobo candles are made of domestically grown sustainable soybeans. This creates the cleanest burning medium and excellent level of fragrance yield. Cotton wicks provide a pure and clean flame. Kobo candles are not only created using environmentally friendly materials but they do not pollute the home either.
The Kobo scents are achieved using the finest boutique fragrance houses in the US. Each candle is then made to specific standards that maximize the fragrance yield to the individual scent to create a room-filling yet not overpowering aroma.
