    I don't know if it's me, the fragrance oil, or the wax. I'm using "White Currant" by CandleScience and I have great hot throw on the first burn I mean a powerful hot throw, but for some reason on the second burn, the scent throw drops down that I can barely smell it when I walk in the room. I doubt if I've become nose blind to the scent because me son gives it a 3 on a scale of 10. I'm using a 3" tin container, coconut wax, an 8% fragrance load, and an ECO 10 wick. I think wicking up may just be too large of a wick for coconut wax, and 10% may be too large of a fragrance load for an ECO 10. Should I decrease the fragrance load? Any suggestions?

    I would think it's the wick. The fragrance load should be pretty strong.
