    What is candle testing?

    Each season we release four never-before-sniffed fragrances in what we call Candle Testers. This experience allows you to try out potential scents alongside THOUSANDS of our candle friends and ensure your thoughts are heard directly by our team. At the end of each round, the most popular fragrance is chosen to officially launch into the Antique Candle Co. ® lineup.

    That’s right! YOU have the final say on what candle makes your home the coziest!

    Who can be a candle tester?

    YOU get a Candle Tester! YOU get a Candle Tester. EVERYBODY gets a Candle Tester! Everyone has the chance to purchase and try out these one-of-a-kind scents and give us their pick. Starting July 9th, you'll be able to snag your very own set of candle testers!

    What fragrances will I be testing?

    We've received sooo many amazing suggestions from our candle friends, but here's the line up for this round:

    Mahogany Cedar | A soothing aroma of warm mahogany with crisp citrus and sweet juniper berries, highlighted by red cedar, fresh fir, and rich clove, with soft notes of oakmoss and sandalwood.

    Main Street Bakery | An irresistible scent of sweet, freshly baked goods from the local bake shop with warm, nostalgic blends of cinnamon sugar, fresh clove, buttery caramel, toasted almond, and vanilla glaze.

    Pumpkin Woods | A warm, cozy blend of fresh pine and pumpkin spice with rich notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger zest, highlighted by ripe pumpkin and soothing woods.

    Harvest Spice | A sweet medley of orange peel, dried berries, crisp apple, and lemon zest, intertwined with warm cinnamon, clove, star anise, and peppercorn spices, finished with earthy notes of pine and maple.

    How do you choose the winning fragrance?

    Once we've gathered thoughts from candle testers across the country, we looks through ALL the surveys to see what people thought. The fragrance that gets the most love and votes becomes our next official candle! Your feedback is what makes our candles so special. 🤍

    What if my favorite doesn’t get chosen?

    Three words. We've. Got. YOU! At the end of each round, our fragrance experts log and take notes on each fragrance to see what our friends LOVED, and on the opposite end, what they thought could use a bit more pizzazz.

    We use what we've learned to ensure that any fragrances that happen to come back are better than ever before!

    How long does it take to test candles?

    We recommend burning each candle for around 2-4 hours each!

    This will ensure your candle creates a full pool of melted wax at the surface and fills the room with a high-quality, long-lasting smell.

    Where should I test my candles?

    For best results, we recommend testing your candles in a small to medium sized room. To prevent the mixture of scents, be sure to burn each candle in separate spaces or allow enough time between burns clear the room of fragrance.

    Our Tester Sample Packs should be tested in a smaller closed-off area such as bathrooms or bedrooms.
