The Iconic taper candles
The classic taper candle was the very first candle to be dipped at ester and erik, and even though this was more than 35 years ago, it continues to be their best-selling candle by far. The candle’s fine, pointed top has always made it unique – a distinctive feature from which it derives the elegant, slender look that distinguishes it as an ester & erik candle. They look amazing standing in an ester and erik candleholder.

Material: The candle is made of 100% pure fragrance-free paraffin wax from Europe’s leading producer. The candle is produced at our factory in Denmark, and the wick is made of 100% cotton.
Foot: The foot of the candle is conical in shape, which means that the candle fits most candle holders.
Self-extinguishing: The candle is self-extinguishing, so the flame dies out 2-3 centimeters from the bottom (however, we recommend never leaving lit candles unattended).
Extinguishing guide: We recommend using a candle extinguisher to extinguish the candle. This avoids smoke and ensures that the candle is completely extinguished, thus preventing the wick from smoldering. A candle extinguisher will completely extinguish the burning wick, so the wick remains intact.
For candles with a lacquer, gold, or silver coating, it is important – after putting out the candle with an extinguisher – to remove the outermost layer of lacquer from the depression around the wick so that the candle can be relit without any difficulty.
Candle-burning tips: To ensure that the candle burns in the best possible way, we recommend keeping the wick short, placing candles min. 10 cm apart, and avoid placing candles in draughts or above a radiator.
