Tip #16: Hot and Cold Throw

Many candle fanatics ask us...what hold and cow throw mean...So here is a simple answer:

  • Cold Throw: How strong a scent is in a candle when it is not lit.
  • Hot Throw: How strong the scent fills an area when it is lit.

Just because a candle has a weak cold throw, does not mean that it will not have a good hot throw. In my experience, sometimes, candles with a mild cold throw actually have a pretty good hot throw (and you don't want it too strong anyway)...Chandlers (official name of candlemakers) have to adhere to the recommended "fragrance load" so do not worry...besides, candles poured by Green Papaya have been tested and are made "nose-friendly".
