One of the most distinct scents around is the smell of "burning" and our Rome Burning candle smells exactly like that in the best possible way. Throw in a bit of aged parchment and you'd swear you were slowly passing by the library at Alexandria during the fall of Rome. SCENTS: Hot Coals, Fire, Smoke, Parchment Our candles are made with all-natural soy wax (from beans grown in the USA) and the maximum amount of high-quality fragrance oils infused with essential oils that the wax will allow. Our low-smoke, clean-burning wicks ensure there's no black soot in the jar, which is reusable or recyclable. Each candle is hand-mixed and hand-poured. Because of this, slight variations in appearance may occur from candle pictured. Our jars hold 8 ounces of wax and weigh about a pound each. They measure 4 inches tall and have a 3 inch diameter.
