Checkmate. It's the moment every chess player strives for, the culmination of hours spent honing their skills and strategizing their moves. The board is a picture of perfection, each piece perfectly in place, and your opponent has nowhere to go. Checkmate. It's the ultimate victory.

When it comes to creating a rich, complex scent that truly captures the essence of chess, there is no better combination than jasmine, saffron, and orange. These three essences create a complex fragrance that evokes the intricate strategy and exhilarating rush of victory that is at the heart of every game of chess.

Product Care

  • When lighting your candle for the first time, burn the candle for at least 1 to 1.5 hours, so the candle melts equally across the entire surface to the side of the vessels. Lighting for less time can cause the candle to "tunnel," leading to wax build-up around the jar. Always burn within sight. Do not leave burning candles unattended or lit while sleeping.
  • Use the Lazy Royal candle lid provided to extinguish the candle; this prevents smoking and ensures the candle is completely out with no glow present at the wick.
  • Do not burn your candle for longer than 3 hrs at a time. This helps to preserve the fragrance.
  • Do not burn your candle all the way down. Always leave at least ½ inch of non-molten wax at the bottom.
  • Do not touch or move the candle when burning. Avoid moving candles when the wax has melted until it has thoroughly cooled.
  • Extinguish the candle if it smokes, flickers or if the flame is too high. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.

This is amazing!

I would rate this review a five, but the delivery took so long! But when I received the candle I was so excited and the smell was amazing!!! I live in a townhouse and could smell this aromatic scent upstairs. I highly recommend this product if you are purchasing for a gift give it about a two week for arrival.
