Tack Box 12 oz. Soy Candle in Upcycled Wine Bottle

Size
  • FRAGRANCE DESCRIPTION
    Ready to tack up, you open your wooden tack box and smell the freshly cleaned and oiled saddle and bridle, the warm clean leather permeates the air and brings you memories of happy rides and clean tack before and after successful shows and fox hunts. You know the smell of a new saddle, new bridle leather, and freshly oiled and polished tack and tall boots? Yeah, that! This familiar scent of fresh leather with notes of cedar and musk is clean and nostalgic.

    PLEASE NOTE: Any orders containing Tack Box will ship the week of January 10, 2022. 

    OUR FRAGRANCES
    All our fragrance oils are 100% organic, phthalate free, paraben free, vegan, gluten free and IFRA compliant.

  • HANDCRAFTED QUALITY
    All of our candles are made with 100% all-natural soy wax, hand-poured in small batches and blended with the maximum ratio of fully-concentrated fragrance oil (almost double the recommended amount), to make the best smelling, long burning candles. We use a hemp wick because hemp is more sustainable than cotton and burns hotter to improve the fragrance throw.

    Our 12 oz. candle containers are handcrafted from wine bottles using a 4-step cold-working process to repurpose the bottles into usable, upcycled containers for our candles. We use a wet saw to hand-cut the glass, then we use the flat lapidary wheel to: grind away any imperfections or chipping, pre-polish the now smooth edge, and polish to add shine back onto the glass.

    ESTIMATED BURN TIME 
    12 oz. wine bottle candles: Up to 120 hours

    WAX COLOR: NATURAL
    Our natural soy candles are au naturel: no artificial colors or dyes.

  • TO MAXIMIZE BURN TIME:

    • Always trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting. We recommend using a wick trimmer for candles in narrow containers, like our bottles.
    • Allow top of candle to pool entirely with each burn.
    • Do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time. To maximize burn time, we recommend burning in 2-3 hour increments.
    • If the flame gets too tall it may cause cracks in the glass. Keep your wick trim.
    • Wick dippers are handy to extinguish the flame without any smoke and re-center the wick after each burn.

Almost The Best

Dear Litup Candle People,
While I value the intent and inventiveness of your glass recycling efforts, this is not why I would buy more of your wares. Your fragrances are 100% wonderful. I spend more than most people on my olfactory senses, and I’m usually dissatisfied by the low quality aroma of 95% of the candles I buy, but not yours. My purchase included four fragrance profiles and all were gorgeous. I’m particularly impressed by your achievement of a legitimate leather note in your Tack Box fragrance. Bravo! All of the candles I purchased were perfect in their ability to fill a room without overpowering. They’re obviously made from natural botanicals, which is a requirement of mine.
I’m inclined to try more of your creations and share them with others, but the reason I’m giving a 4* review instead of a 5* review is important. You guys gotta fix your shipping systems. I was highly disappointed by how long it took for you to deliver your product. I know times have been tough in the realm of high demand for fast delivery. But I planned ahead and placed my order early to avoid problems and still, the package arrived after I left town for the holidays. This forced me to buy new gifts instead of giving your candles as I intended. There was no indication from your company advising me that you ship on the slow boat and there was no communication about a delivery date. I was lucky that my neighbor collected the box (and held it for two weeks) instead of a porch pirate. I’m still feeling annoyed by this debacle in light of the fact that I ordered many things (several from other continents) the same day I placed my order at Litup, and they all arrived in half the time with standard shipping. I beg you to focus on your shipping methodology/communication. Improving that will make you guys the absolute best in class, IMO. Best wishes in 2022.

Thank you for your kind words and honest feedback, Ellen. We sincerely value you and your input. While this holiday season brought many unforeseen challenges behind-the-scenes, we agree that we absolutely could have done a better job with communication. We know how important it is to ship orders in a timely manner during the holiday season, and are working on implementing changes to help us move through the holidays much smoother going forward. Please check your email with our sincere apologies.
