- Our 5 - 7oz candles burn 40+ hours and are suited for bathrooms, bedside tables & small rooms.
- Our 1 - 4 oz candles burn between 4 to 20 hours and are suited for small spaces. Perfect for hotel rooms.
What are scent notes?
Scent notes are the different scent layers that make up the final fragrance. These scents are split into three distinct elements: top notes, heart notes and base notes.
The top notes represent the first impression. They may not be the longest-lasting element of a fragrance but they’re the first thing you’ll smell when trying a new fragrance. Top notes represent the initial scents that lure you in, causing you to make your first impression of the fragrance.
The heart notes start to make an appearance just before the top notes fade away and will strongly influence the base notes to come.
Finally, the base notes will start to shine through once the top notes have completely evaporated. Alone, base notes make up 10-25% of the final fragrance. However, the base notes also blend with the heart notes to deepen the complexity of the fragrance.
Where the top notes make the initial impression, the base notes are associated with the dry-down period of the fragrance and so, base notes will create the final, lasting impression.
How do I care for my candle?
We've added a section called Candle Care on every candle page to help you care for your candle. We also add a candle care card to each candle order.
Where are ByRoya products made?
ByRoya products are all entirely handcrafted in Los Angeles, California USA.
How are ByRoya Candles created?
Each candle is meticulously hand poured using the most traditional methods of candle making. Each candle is given unique attention from start to finish.
What type of wax to do your use to create your candles?
During our wax testing, we found that Virgin Coconut Soy Wax was the best wax for creating candles with smooth tops. It is a plant-derived, vegan blend of natural soy and coconut. It has a creamy white appearance and gives an evenness of burn and wax consumption. This wax is gluten free, toxin free, paraben free, and phthalate free. The entire blend utilizes only FDA approved waxes so you have peace of mind while using your home.

Here are tips for safely prolonging the life of your candles.
Trim the Wick
Before lighting your ByRoya candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks or soot around the edge of the glass.
Realign the Wick
After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.
Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack. Keep away from children and pets.
