Escentscia: Range Rebrand

Escentscia have rebranded their ranges and tweaked the formulas. Ahead of changes to fragrance legislation, such as the reclassification of lilial, Escentscia have begun to implement changes ahead of time . These changes are very small and the scent of the fragrances and how they perform in your candles/melts has not changed in any way. Testing is not required.

Escentscia Original fragrance oil range has now been rebranded to Prime Range. Prime Range fragrances are designed to be used as a strong single scent. They can be used on their own or together for your own unique blend. 
Escentscia have also rebranded the Escentscia US Style fragrance oil range to Style Range. Style, by definition, is an elegant, fashionable, or luxurious mode of living. We believe this perfectly embodies the style fragrances which are styled blends designed by expert perfumers.

TCR Candle Wick: Now Available!

We have now introduced the TCR Candle Wick series to our website. This is a wick which we have been asked to stock and we now offer a whole range of sizes. As with all of our wicks, the TCR can be coated in natural wax.
The TCR candle wick is an unbleached, self-trimming candle wick suitable for natural waxes including soy and rapeseed. The wick is made from cotton entwined with a thread of paper.  The core of this wick has a supportive external jacket which is designed to eliminate sooting and minimise mushrooming. The smallest sizes are also suitable for natural tealights. 
The TCR Wick is available to purchase in many formats including in sample amounts, raw and pre-waxed. We offer a fully bespoke waxed wick service where customers can choose the height of the wick, the type of wax it is coated in, and the sustainer they would like this placing on. Below, you will find a wax pool guide for the TCR candle wick series:
