dark & stormy - cashmere, sandalwood, & suede
This is a scent you’ll want to get your hands on this for the upcoming “dark and stormy” season.
With heart notes of musky cashmere, silky suede, and bold sandalwood and frankincense, this scent is the perfect pair with a rainy or gloomy day. Perfect for those who prefer musk and masculine scented candles.
All candles are made with 100% natural soy wax, non-toxic and pet-friendly fragrances, and crackling wooden wicks.
9oz. 55-60 hour burn time.
Wooden Wick Instructions and Tips:
*During your first burn, you're going to want to let it reach a full melt pool (wait at least 1 hour) to avoid candle tunnelling as wax has a molding memory. Before lighting in between each burn after that, trim the wick about ¼” inch - by pinching off or trimming the top curled bits of the burnt wood wick - NOT the entire burnt part!
*If your candle flame is fading and seems like it is going to go out, let it burn for 15 minutes and if the low flame continues, blow it out and wait until the candle wax is hard, then trim the curled black part of the wick a bit more. It's easiest to use a BBQ lighter - melt the wax around the wick for a few seconds and then hold the flame against the wooden wick for 5 seconds to properly ignite the wick.
*If you trimmed your wick too short: Keep in mind that wood wicks require enough space to catch flame - if you think you trimmed your wick too short then pour out half a cm of melted wax. If the wax is hard and you need to melt it, use a BBQ lighter, heat gun, or hair dryer on high heat to melt the top layer of the wax, then pour out, and relight,
To avoid fire hazard, never leave a burning candle unattended and always light on a heat proof surface. Keep out of reach of flammable objects, pets, children, or anything that may catch on fire. Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Stop use when only 1/2” of wax remains.
Cleaning Your Candle Jar or Vintage Vessel:
When candle has 1/2" left of wax, fill jar with boiling water and leave over night or for 6+ hours to allow wax to cool. Once wax is cooled, pick out with your hands and dispose of in the garbage or green bin - DO NOT POUR IN THE SINK. Once wax is removed from the jar, wash normally and voila!

I absolutely love this new candle that I got. The scent is the perfect strength and such a real smell, you can’t mistake the scent for anything other than what it is! I have purchased candles from Meliora Candle Co before and am never disappointed. Also the owner is one of the sweetest people that I have bought from. If you are on the edge, buy it! They also make great gifts for other people. And supporting a small business too…win win!!!
I keep trying to find a dark masculine scent, and the name of this candle had me! Afterall it's one of my favourite cocktails.
Unfortunately, this scent was too strong for me..(I need a lil sweet mixed in). So I gifted it to my bestie who basically only likes spicy/earthy scented candles..AND Win Win!
This candle should be called dark and hor... Do you know where I'm going with this? It's a DELIGHTFUL smell. My boyfriend is obsessed as well. Sandalwood is one of my favourite scents, and let me tell you, I've got A LOT of sandalwood candles. This one though... It's next level. It's not too overpowering, but I can smell it as I walk through a room, which is everything I want in a candle. Once I go through this one, I definitely will be getting another. YUM.
This candle smells amazing!! Love that it’s safe for pets & kiddos too.
Picked up this jar at an event in Vancouver that Sydney was showcasing Meliora Candles at. My boyfriend (surprisingly a huge candle connoisseur) picked the Dark & Stormy out and immediately lit it once we got home. Friends who would come over always complimented the aroma it expelled. Will be buying again!
