Vessel Types Explained

We offer two versions of our Wine Bottle candles, a Cheeky domed base and a Flat base, both of which have a 50+ hour burn time. This means we can use more types of wine bottles and re-direct them from landfill to have a second life as candle.

Cheeky wine bottle candles with dome bases are easy to spot by the dome in their base called a 'punt' or 'kick-up'. These are a bit Cheeky because they don't allow the candle to burn all the way to the bottom with the wick base sitting on the dome. Cheekies will always have a few centimetres of wax left around the dome, but just remember the majority of this space is hollow underneath. These are most widely loved for their large diameter and feature a beautiful, thick green glass.

Our Mojo 'Flatties' or Flat based wine bottles are easy to spot as these vessels have a flat base with a narrower diameter than Mojo's usual wider-look 'Cheeky' domed wine bottle vessels. Flatties tend to have thinner glass but will leave little to no wax left over.

So in addition to the wick size and pour height, the characteristics of both vessel types equal out so that all the vessels have a 50+ burn time!

WILD BASIL & CUCUMBER - Reclaimed Wine Bottle Soy Wax

Wow the smell is incredible! I love the way it burns down evenly and the lasting smell throughout the home.

Thanks so much for your lovely feedback, Di!!!

Genuinely the BEST candle on the market!

I can’t speak for other their candles, but the Basil and Cucumber is literally the best quality candle for fragrance on the market at this price range! The fragrance fills my entire open plan house… and it is just so refreshing. The candle has definitely lasted a lot longer than 50 hours too. Love love love!

Thanks so much for your endorsement, Ashleigh!!!! We are so happy that the Wild Basil & Cucumber candle burned so well for you!!!! Another one you may like is Oakmoss & Sage, if you wanted to try another fragrance. =)


Absolutely beautiful candle. Fresh and calming scent

Thanks Amy! It's such a refreshing fragrance!

Wild Basil & Cucumber

I bought this thinking I was taking a risk hoping that the smell would be as I imagined however I didn’t expect it to smell this amazing. This is my favourite candle I’ve ever bought, it’s so refreshing and calming. I use this in the bedroom and bathroom and instantly helps me to relax. The cucumber and basil is a wonderful combination it’s not a strong ‘green’ smell more a clean and soft refreshing smell. I will definitely be repurchasing/refilling! I love the wine glass vessel too because it’s sustainable but still looks so lux!

That's so great, Kate! Thanks so much for the endorsement! Really happy that you found a favourite! The Wild Basil & cucumber is very different to your usual candle fragrances but it is definitely beautifully refreshing! Its even more be amazing come summer time! =D
