Palm Wax™ Candles Are the Most Highly Fragranced in the Industry

In a good candle, the fragrance releases from the particular wax in which it is being used. Some will release better in Palm Wax™ just because of the chemical structure. It has less to do with the wax and more to do with the fragrance and wax combination and/or chemistry. The same fragrance can be made to release better in Palm Wax™ than paraffin and vice versa. We select fragrances and pure essential oils that release best in our Palm Wax™.

The evaluation of a fragrance hinges on "cold throw" and "hot throw". Cold throw is the impact of the fragrance in the candle before burning. The bottom notes, often the most expensive part of a fragrance, become particularly pronounced only when the pool of molten liquid wax on top has completely formed. A lit candle is not customarily in the store, so a purchaser almost invariably selects a candle based on its cold throw. To retail the candle, we ensured that the fragrance has a strong cold throw. We have achieved this by carefully selecting raw materials to enhance the interaction between the wax and the fragrances to achieve optimal performance to enhance the character of desirable notes.

We have been working with fragrance houses for three years to pioneer our own Fragrance Balancing Technology™, a process that combines all the natural raw materials and regulates and balances their evaporative rates so the top, middle, and bottom notes are released all at the same time. This gives the full body and lift of the fragrances. It also ensures that consumers will be even more satisfied when they take the product home and burn it; the scent of the candle is even stronger when it has been burning for a while. We hand-pour the oils in layers so when the candle is lit, the blend 'throws' even further and the full body of the scent completely fills the room when it is burning.

Palm Wax™ is derived from the triple pressing of the fruit of palm oil trees. It is an excellent candle fuel. It contains naturally occurring materials similar to those contained in essential oils and quality perfumes. The fragrances and wax are actually soluble; that is, they easily dissolve in one another. This is not true of soy and paraffin waxes. These properties of our wax allow us to use the highest concentration of fragrance in the industry. This is not true of petroleum and soy based waxes. Paraffin and soy candle manufacturers can pour between 5% and 8% fragrance. A very few manufacturers use synthetic diluents that allow them to put in up to 12%.

No company other then Aloha Bay can claim their candles contain 21% perfume and essential oils — that is more than double and in may cases quadruple the scent concentration of other brands.
