Terrible odor.

Was excited to try this one. Melted in digiboil low and slow on 500w. The smell is atrocious. Exhaust fumes and melted tires. Not sure what the deal is..no way I can make candles with this and the cleanup is gonna be horrendous.

Thanks so much for your feedback, Danny! We're sorry to hear about your experience with the IGI 4627. We've found that some paraffin waxes will have a bit of an odor in their raw form, but this should disappear in a finished product.

Burning Plastic Smell?

Normally CS products are 100% on-point!
However, after receiving my bag of IGI 4627 and melting it down in my digiboil, I noticed a strong unpleasant smell, akin to burning plastic. I had not added ANY fragrance at this point.

To to determine if the smell was coming from the digiboil itself, I transferred some fresh 4627 from the bag into my pour pot and melted it using the double-boiler method, bringing it to 140F. Unfortunately, the "burning plastic" smell was still present.

Then, I tried using a brand new pouring pitcher, but got the same result. This indicates to me that the smell is not coming from any of my equipment.

Not exactly sure what could be going on here, I wonder if I got a bad batch or something? In any case, buyer beware.

Great Hot Throw

Okay...yes...this is a mess to work with...BUT the hot throw is awesome. I freaked out because at first the CT seemed non existent...the next day was a WOW. Waited a week to burn and the HT is amazing. I normally wait 2-3 weeks befor I burn any candles I make. I use LX wicks. I have no issues with glass adherence or tunneling. I heat to 185 to 190. I add fragrance at 185 then stir for 2 minutes and pour between 165 and 175. I use CS 3 wick jars primarily because of an open floor plan in my house.

Amazing cold & hot throw

I use an ice cream scoop too to dig out, but I also empty the whole bag into a bucket for storage, sink holes happen, yes, but a heat gun can fix that. I get a lot of good reviews from my customers about the hot & cold throw. I use this wax for jars and tealights, and it lasts a lot longer. The mess and scooping is worth the outcome. The price is a little high, but everything else is too. I am happy with this wax.

No Hot Throw

I can't get a hot throw. I have been using the IGI4006 with success...just wanted to see if the parrafin only amped up the hot throw. Literally no hot throw and very little cold throw. I would love any suggestions. Used the recommended wick and even sized up. Melt pool is not good. I don't mind experimenting with wicks...but the point is..I can't get a decent cold OR hot throw with this. Any advice?

At a loss

I bought this wax hoping it would be easier than soy. It’s messy sure but I can get past that. The HT is almost non existent. I used 10% FO. CT is amazing. But even with a few hours lit there’s no scent unless you’re standing right over it.

This Wax is the KING of HOT throw

Everything people mention about is true...its messy to deal with and for the novice candle maker hard to wick . I bought this wax when I was new to candle making. I tried in vain to wick it but got so much back smoke I gave up and moved on to other waxes. But as I gained more experience with the craft , I circled back around to this 4627 wax. Since by that time I possessed every wick series there was. I was able to wick this properly without black soot...It takes color very well. And fragrance is where these wax shines... It takes 12 - 15% with ease. Cold throw and Hot throw are unmatched. Fragrances that I possessed that I thought were a dud absolutely came to life in this wax .

Scooping

I love this wax but I wish there was an easier way to handle it. I am currently using an ice cream scoop, but I want to be able to put a few pounds into my melter without making hundreds of scoops.

sinkholes

I keep having sinkholes with this wax :( I’ve tried pouring at a lower temperature with no luck. I currently dont have a heat gun which I know I need to purchase asap. But is there any reason this wax specifically keeps giving me sinkholes? Or any suggestion on things I can do to stop them?
