Important Candle Care Tips




This maximizes the burn time of your candle while reducing your chances of soot. Use a sharp wick trimmer or scissors to ensure a clean cut.

Candle Care Trim Your Wick

Always burn your candle on a heat-resistant, flat, stable surface.

Trapp votive candles will liquefy when burning. Always place in snug-fitting candle holder to maintain the original shape of the candle. Trapp votives should not be burned longer than 2 hours at a time.

Follow the instructions regarding how long to burn your candle at a time. Most candles are 4 hours or less but it depends on the size of the candle.

Allow the entire top of your candle to liquefy each time you light your candle — this can take several hours. Candles have a memory — if not allowed to pool completely they can start to tunnel causing excess wax to build up on the edges of the glass.

Don't have a few hours to burn your candle?

Although nothing can replace the ambiance of a lit candle, wax melts can be used to quickly fill your room with fragrance and can be turned on/off whenever you like.

Be sure to burn candles in a well-ventilated room but be sure to keep candles away from drafts and vents. If your candle burns unevenly after trimming and centering the wick, your candle is likely in a draft. We recommend changing location of the candle.

Immediately after extinguishing the candle, use tweezers to keep your wick centered. Never allow a burning wick to touch the glass.

Discontinue use of candle when 1/4” of wax remains to prevent the burning wick from getting too close to the glass.

Reed Diffuser Care

Diffuser Care

It's all about the fragrance...

When your Trapp reed diffuser is properly maintained, it will fill your room with fragrance for approximately 45 days.

To maximize your reed diffusers performance follow these simple steps:

  1. Flip your reeds once a week.
    • Rattan reeds are porous and have capillaries- This is how the perfume travels through the reeds and is then diffused when air moves across the fragrance-infused reeds.
    • Liquids can cause the rattan/wood to swell clogging the capillaries which causes less space for the fragrance to travel. Consequently, you will have liquid remaining, but diminished fragrance diffusion.
  2. After 4 to 5 weeks (or sooner if you notice the liquid level hasn't changed in a while), replace the first set of reeds with the second set
    • This will ensure continued enjoyment.

To refill your diffuser, open bottle and carefully pour contents into a safe glass container and follow the steps above.
