Candle Care

Here are tips for safely prolonging the life of your candles.

Burn Time

The first time you burn your diptyque candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.
- Standard Candle: May burn up to 60 hours.
- Small Candle: May burn up to 30 hours.
- Colored Candles: May burn up to 90 hours.
- Large Indoor/Outdoor Candle: May burn up to 150 hours.

Trim the Wick

Before lighting your diptyque candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.

Realign the Wick

After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.


Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.
