Originally, Ester & Erik's cone candles were produced as a decorative Christmas candle for festive wreaths and decorations. However, the cone candle soon went on to become a popular interior product, which is now sold all year round.
The cone candle is self-standing, making it a very versatile product. With its classic shape, it is elegant on its own, but it also sits beautifully on a candle plate or many other surfaces, for example, a piece of glass, a raw cement table or a piece of marble – anything is possible, because no candle holder is required.
Material: The candle is made of 100% pure fragrance-free paraffin wax from Europe’s leading producer. The candle is produced at Ester & Erik's factory in Denmark, and the wick is made of 100% cotton.
Foot: The foot of the candle is conical in shape, which means that the candle fits most candleholders.
Self-extinguishing: The candle is self-extinguishing, so the flame dies out 2-3 centimetres from the bottom (however, we recommend to never leave lit candles unattended).
Extinguishing guide: We recommend using a candle extinguisher to extinguish the candle. This avoids smoke and ensures that the candle is completely extinguished, thus preventing the wick from smouldering. A candle extinguisher will completely extinguish the burning wick, so the wick remains intact.
For candles with lacquer, gold or silver coating, it is important – after putting out the candle with an extinguisher – to remove the outermost layer of lacquer from the depression around the wick so that the candle can be relit without any difficulty.
Candle-burning tips: To ensure that the candle burns in the best possible way, we recommend keeping the wick short, placing candles min. 10 cm apart, and avoiding placing candles in draughts or above a radiator.
