Palm Wax™ Candles Are the Most Highly Fragranced in the
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
