How do you make the best scent throw when making candles?
Besides, what candle wax has the best scent throw?
Soy waxes are known to be more 'picky' about the fragrance oils that work well in them. As a general rule, paraffin waxes still provide better scent throw than soy waxes.
Furthermore, what is the best temperature to add fragrance to soy wax? We recommend adding fragrance to wax when it's heated to about 10-15 degrees above its melting point. So, if your wax melts at 52 degrees, heat the wax to about 62-67 degrees before adding. This is a good temperature to store and pour at too.

Why don't my candles smell strong?
If you are noticing that your candles are not producing a strong enough hot throw, you may want to lower the temperature at which you add the fragrance oil. It can be possible that some of the fragrance is burning off simply by the heat of the melted wax. Adding your fragrance at too high of a temperature will do this.
