Shopping with us

Shopping for candles online is very difficult. You want to experience the sensational aromas from the different fragrances, breathing them in until you come to the one that is perfect for you and your home.

At Aflame Candles, we want to help you maintain that wonderful experience but, within the comfort of you own home. This is why we bring the fragrances to you by letting you order samples of the scents, delivered to you.

Of course, whilst you can buy any of our products at any time, see below our step by step guide to getting the most out of shopping with Aflame Candles.

We dispatch all orders on the same day, if your order is placed before 2 o clock. This process could take as little as two business days between choosing your fragrances and receiving your candle.

Step 1. Order your fragrance samples

For each of our fragrances, you are able to place a fragrance sample in your basket. On the product page, click “Add a sample of this fragrance to my cart” to add a sample of the fragrance you are viewing.

For a deposit of £2.00 you can choose up to 6 fragrance samples to enjoy, if your cart says more than £2.00 for less than 6 fragrances then just click “update cart”. When you receive the order, we will include your voucher code to reclaim the £2.00 off your purchase.

Step 2. Choose your favourite fragrance

You’ll receive your chosen selection of fragrances to experience in the comfort of your own home. The samples are card strips that hold the oils used in the product, you’ll receive the card strips in small zip lock bags that will enable you to fully enjoy the fragrance different fragrances.

You’ll get the best sensation if the fragrance stick remains in the bag whilst you inhale. Make sure that the bag is fully aerated, especially around the fragrance stick and to maximise the intensity of the fragrance, squash the wax between your thumb and forefinger to increase the surface area.

Step 3. Order Your Items

Once you have made the decision on your fragrance then you can go ahead and buy with confidence. Please bear in mind that most of our fragrances come in different forms – choose between reed diffusers or candles large and small.

When you’re placing your order, don’t forget to reclaim your £2.00 deposit off your order. This will have been sent to you with your fragrance samples.
