Taper candles can be easily identified by their tall and thin shape that helps them stand out from other candle variants. When most people think of candles, the first image that pops into their minds is that of a taper candle. Coloured taper candles are in high demand because of their versatility and wide range of uses. Most candle holders come with pre configurations that are aimed towards taper candles. In case they aren’t, we also sell candle sharpeners to ensure your dinner candles and tapers will fit in any type or size of candle holders. This alone can show the commonality and wide usage of taper candles in Australia. Walk into any store and you are guaranteed to find at least one variety of taper candles.

While they are significantly slimmer and contain less wax than their straight counterparts, the benefits of taper candles over pillar candles cannot be understated. In terms of providing light, both taper candles and dinner candles work in the same manner. While both provide an incredible amount of light in every direction, taper candles stand apart for two primary reasons.

The first is the design. Taper candles are made in a traditional wick dipping method. This involves the process of repeatedly dipping a wick into a pot of wax to create a smooth and tapered look for the body of the candle. This design is extremely important when it comes to pooling at the bottom as the runoff from being dipped enables the candle to pool at the base rather than the top which is in stark contrast to column candles. Furthermore, a taper candle provides the maximum amount of lumens in a room meaning that there is little to no restriction when it comes to their light filling up any given space.
