Sound comparison of a WoodWick vs. Yankee Candle Radiance

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 ~

  1. I definitely prefer the sound of the woodwick over yankee’s. Great video it was nice to be able to hear the comparison.

  2. I too prefer Wood Wick as I have recently burned the scent O’Tannenbaum. Although the scent was pretty darn good and the throw wasn’t bad the sounds was mesmerizing! I do Like the Pure Radiance collection from YC but you can’t beat WW with a stick!! It is by far a better choice for the crackling sound!. Great video capturing each one!!

    • Oooh, O’Tannenbaum? Sounds interesting! I loved the Vanilla Bourbon scent. That’s a winner for sure.
