Happy Jackson is the result of a creative partnership between poet and artist Giles Andreae and designer Heather Flynn. Beginning with a simple sketch of a curious little pug dog as their logo, the idea soon transformed into a broad collection of bold colours, playful patterns and fun, uplifting remarks designed to make everyone smile.
Happy Jackson can now be found on a wide range of products here at Wonder Stuff, Treorchy and at wonderstuffgiftshop.co.uk. Choose from bright homewares, storage tins and stationery. These products will certainly put a smile on your face! Happy Jackson… it’s a beautiful thing!
Thought we'd let you know the burning times for the Yankee Candle products we stock.
We all love our Yankee Candles, so here’s a few tips to ensure you achieve excellent burning time and ensure you look after your Yankee products. These tips are recommended by Yankee Candle so take a look at them and comment on how you look after your Yankee Candle ..... and any other tips you wish to share!
Do you have a 'dancing' flame? If the flame flickers too much, it can produce unwanted black smoke, this can be caused by the wick being too long or drafts in the air. To ensure a clean burn, trim the wick to 3mm using a Yankee Candle wick trimmer and make sure it isn't in direct line of any air currents...... then relight and enjoy. You can find the wick trimmer online in our Yankee Candle accessories shop or instore.
The first burn of your new candle is the most important because you need to prevent tunnelling and memory rings.
To ensure you get an even and clean burn throughout your candle’s life - burn your candle for 30 minutes for every 1cm in diameter, so for example a large jar is approximately 8cm in diameter, so we would recommend to burn it for at least 4 hours to ensure the first layer of wax melts to the edge of the candle before you extinguish it. If the wax is not allowed to melt to the edge; the candle will create a memory ring around the wick and it can then tunnel.
The 1cm Rule
When there is approximately 1cm of wax remaining at the bottom of your jar candle, we recommend this is where you should discontinue its use as the flame nears the base of the glass it can get very hot – by doing this you will avoid possible heat damage that can be caused to surfaces or the container.
Snug is Best
When using sampler votive candles, for the most effective burn it’s best to select a holder that mimics the size and shape of the candle. Check out our online store for Yankee Candle votive holders.
Choosing the right fragrance:
Sampler Votive Candles & Tarts Wax Melts
Yankee Candle small votives are called samplers because they are a great way to experiment with new or different fragrances. We offer a large range instore or online so you can definitely find some you'll love. You may prefer a flameless fragrance like Yankee Candle's wax melts or tarts, which is another way to experiment with fragrancing your home. You can also experiment with fragrance mixology where you can create your own unique fragrance by combining complimentary fragrances together.
If you have a particularly large room or open plan living space, Yankee Candle recommend choosing wax that has a wider pool of melted wax which will give off a wide ranging throw such as large jar candles and tarts/wax melts and warmer. choose from classic loved forms including:
Our fragrances are true to life and just like their names; the intensity of those fragrances can vary. If you want a fragrance that is more or less intense think of the strength of its inspiration and you’ll be on the right track.
Fragrance let down
Are you struggling to smell a candle after it has been burning for a while? Sometimes like with any other fragrance product you may temporarily lose the ability to smell the fragrance due to repeated exposure, whereas other’s new to it will detect it.
The best way to reconnect with your favourite fragrance is to try out a new fragrance for a while, before returning to your favourite fragrance and the smell should return.
