Bignor Hill Candle is enchanting with its captivating woody olfactory notes from conifers, luring you in with a piney, earthy scent with a sandalwood undertone.
Mingled with a fresh, clean aroma that is herbaceous and spicy from cypress. Evocative of the fresh mountain air filling your senses as you go up a wealth of natural beauty.
The scintillating heart of Bignor Hill Candle contains a clean, earthy smell with a hint of licorice from myrrh, adding a watery dimension to the accord.
The enveloping and unrefined base notes of opoponax exude themselves with a toffee sweet, fruit spicy, leathery aroma. Accompanied by the sweet, honey-like, and woody scent from incense, creating an almost tactile Spring hiking experience.
Standing tall in West Sussex, providing a lung-busting challenge for walkers, runners, and riders, Bignor Hill with its wondrous views from the South Downs Way at the top will make any effort well worth it. Surrounding the awe-inspiring scenery is an old Celtic legend that a dragon had its lair on top of the hill.

How to look after your Lubien Candle
Trim the wicks to around 0.5 cm before each burn. Trimming the tips helps maintain clean and even burn without flame flickering and smoking the glass.
Place your candle on a secure, even, heatproof surface, away from draughts and away from the reach of children and pets. You should only use scented candles in well-ventilated rooms.
Keep the melt pool clean, clear of matches, wick trims and any other debris.
Always light up all the wicks.
The first burn is very important. Burn your candle until you reach a beautiful full melt pool but never longer than 4 hours. This will ensure even burn afterwards. Burning for shorter periods of time may cause your candle to ‘tunnel’ and significantly reduce the total burn time.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Always check the glass isn’t hot before handling it.
Use a snuffer to extinguish the flame. Do not blow it.
Do not move your candle with any melted wax Wait until it sets.
Close the candle in the box afterwards to avoid any objects getting inside the melt pool.
Reuse the glass and the box. To get rid of any wax residue on the walls, put the glass in the freezer overnight. The wax will expand and you will be able to remove it easily. Wash the container in the warm water with soap. Use it as a glass, bowl, vase, storage… As you wish!
