IGI 4627 Comfort Blend Wax
IGI's 4627 "Comfort Blend" holds the most fragrance of any wax we carry! It can hold 2 oz. of fragrance per pound (12%), and has excellent hot and cold throw. This wax is very soft, and is packaged in a 25 lb. bag. This requires no additional additives - just add color and fragrance.
|Max Fragrance||12% or 2oz./lb.|
|Applications||Container / Tealight|
|Pour temp||180° (+/-5°)|

Only two things I have to say about this wax. #1- It is without a doubt the messiest, goopiest and sloppiest wax I have ever used. #2 - The cold throw on this wax is superior. And at (12% FO load) the hot throw is unmatched by any other period! This wax is definatley a love / hate. It performs impeccably and is very forgiving, but is so sloppy to work with. My goal is figure out the percentage of GB 464 I can blend it with to firm it up a bit without losing any of the hot throw.

This wax creates excellent candles! The scent retention is incredible. Have you ever noticed that when you leave the lid off of a candle for hours, later the scent may seem weaker than when it's had the lid on? Not so with this wax. Cold throw stays great. Wet spots? Non existent, and I don't even heat my jars!
Only problem is that I hate working with it. So sticky.... It's awful. I'm going to try the Harmony blend to see if it will be as good.

I started out using GB 464 Soy & had so many issues so I switched to this & I am so thankful that I did! I use 8 ounce jelly jars with a LX 18 wick. I melt the wax to 190, add the color, and then stir. Then I take off the heat & add FO & stir for two to three minutes or until the temp reaches 180 & then I pour into preheated jars. No wet spots, sink holes, messed up tops, etc. The only con to this wax is that it's very sticky. However, just wear disposable or latex gloves & it shouldn't be an issue. I cut the plastic on the wax down the sides, pull the plastic down & use an ice cream scooper to measure out how much I need. Easy peasy.

In my experience wet spots occur when the wax cools too fast. Try putting them in a box together to slow cooling.

I switched to the 4627 to mix with the GB 464 soy, since it seems like a good fit for holding fragrance. I am pouring at 180*, but my candles have terrible wet spots (I am preheating jars) and there was some white frosting near the top! Not sure what I'm doing wrong. In addition, the wax appears cloudy once cured. I may switch back to Harmony blend. The softness of the 4627 wax means it is especially messy to work with. Not wild about it so far.

This is my favorite container wax and the scent throw is wonderful. For the person asking about how to scoop this out of the plastic container, I cut the plastic at the corners-cut a slit upward to the top, peel it down and use a long spatula to scoop it. Having it not stick to the sides really helps.
By only problem with this wax is trapped air that forms water spots. Any suggestions?

I made candles with this wax for the first time today. After trying to scoop this wax out of the bag, I decided to slice it instead with a large knife. I put the 25 pound bag on the counter and pulled the bag part way down and sliced horizontally taking large chunks out. I wore latex gloves so my fingers would stay clean. It worked great!

I like the way the wax pours, however, I have used various methods of getting the wax out of the box and would be interested in hearing how others scoop the wax. I have used an ice cream shovel, a spoon, a knife (waste of time) and interestingly my most successful method has been to use a soap cutter or what cooks might call a bread or vegetable scraper. Would love to hear how others are getting the wax out!
gave 5 stars cause this wax rocks!

I've been trying out soy and other paraffin waxes and was just about ready to give up. I am so happy I tried this wax. It is easy to use, looks professional and beautiful and has a good throw. I hope IGI doesn't stop making this wax!
Making candles is fun again!

My husband and I just finished up a batch of candles with this wax and I have to say it is an absolute dream. We will be using this wax in all of our candles! Holds scent great and needs only one pour-- no wet spots, or indentations. Great great great wax.

My R&D has finally ended after approx. a year of research. I have found a wax that is second to none. This is it.

This wax is wonderful. I have tried several soy waxes and none of them hold the real true fragrance throw hot and cold that this paraffin wax does. It truly gives off a wonderful scent throw hot and cold and is so easy to work with. One pour and your candle tops are perfect. I do let it sit for about 5-7 minutes before pouring though. I use 2 ozs of fragrance in the 16ozs apothecary jars.

I never write reviews and perhaps I should not let the cat out of the bag. This wax rocks. I mixed it with Golden Brands 464 and have finally found my balance of heaven.
I wanted a soft wax and this foots the bill. I poured the candles earlier today and am already burning one. I feel like I have been in a 6 year battle with Soy and I am finally happy.

I too switched from soy to this wax. Glad I did. Takes good to any dye, produces rich colors and holds lots of fragrance. One pour does the trick every time.

I have gone from a soy wax to this comfort blend. For me it was a great move. My candles look smooth and creamy. The hot and cold scent throws are amazing.
