Originally, Ester & Erik 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, and are now sold all year round.
These cone candles are self-standing, making them a very versatile product. With a classic shape, they are elegant on their own, but also sit beautifully on a candle plate or many other surfaces.
Material: The candle is made of 100% pure fragrance-free paraffin wax from Europe’s leading producer. The candle is produced at the Ester & Erik 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 candles are self-extinguishing, so the flame dies out ≈ 2-3 centimetres from the bottom (however, it is recommended to never leave lit candles unattended).
Extinguishing guide: It is recommended to use 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.
