What Are Triple Scented Candles?
When you first hear of triple scented candles, most people would assume this means they have a strong amazing fragrance in comparison to regular types of candles that are scented.
However this term is slightly misused, we would refer to them more as candles with their maximum amount of full-bodied fragrance.
This is because different types of wax in candles can only hold a certain amount of fragrance before it makes them unusable and highly flammable. For example, paraffin scented candles can hold the most amount of fragrance ratio up to 10% fragrance while soy wax can take up to 8%, any more is dangerous.
