I have burned two wooden wick candles lately – one WoodWick (from Virginia Candle Company) and the other from Yankee Candles’ Pure Radiance Collection. Part of the allure of the wooden wick candles is that they sound similar to a wood burning fire in the fireplace. Romantic and comforting!
While I enjoyed both of these candles for ambiance, WoodWick certainly had the YC Radiance candle beat. The sound was just more prominent and more relaxing. Here’s a quick video to demonstrate the difference. (Both candles are the largest jars. I had burned the YC one quite far before deciding to do this video, but the sound toward the end of the candle was the same as the beginning.)
Which crackling sound do you prefer?
Happy candle burning ~
