Just a trim.
Can we put our love for these scissors into words? Well, we can try. They’re tailor-made for wick-trimming, so they’re helping us keep candle smoke and soot at bay. Then there’s that design—long enough to reach into our deepest jars, with round blades that’ll catch the trimmings before they drop onto the wax. In that sleek, matte black finish, they’re the kind of thing you won’t mind leaving out. Snag yours with the scented candle that strikes your fancy: Dusk, Golden Hour, or Moonrise.

Details & Materials +-
Scissors measure 6.5" L x 2.5" W.
Burn Time: 50-60 hours
Dusk smells like damp leaves, crisp air, powder and spice on a clear night. Woody, cool, and earthy. Black pepper, clary sage, palo santo, and blooming iris.
Golden Hour smells like rustling grasses, baked earth, sun rays split between trees. Mellow, dry, tranquil. Bergamot, hay, and golden poppy.
Moonrise Heatwaves, late-night crowds, the lure of the dance floor melding smoke and strange perfumes. Balmy, ambiguous, free. Yuzu, Indian jasmine, and smoked cedarwood.
Care & Notes +-
Make sure to trim your wick before each lighting or once your candle has cooled to room temperature; never attempt to trim a burning candle. Place the trimmer's long handle against the inside of the jar's rim for guidance and bring the curved scissor blades to the wick, about 1/4" from the base and parallel with the wax. Trim your wick and discard the snipped portion in the trash. As a safety precaution, never leave wick trimmings (matches or other debris, for that matter) in your candle jar!
