ParaNatural 51104 Luxury Wax & CDN Wicks

I'm currently testing CDN wicks with Coconut Soy Hybrid 51104 Wax by Titan Wax.  I'm hoping that this will be helpful to some when narrowing down which wicks to use.  Feel free to adjust based on your wax/vessel/fragrance oil combo.  I'm using a vessel (Libbey Heavy Rocks Base) that's 3-1/8" inner diameter at the top, so if yours is smaller, you will want to wick down.  It's best to test a couple wick sizes in a few wick series or brands to see what you like the best!  Feel free to reach out to me anytime if you have any questions at all.  I'm here to help.

About CDN wicks...
The CDN series features a flat braided cotton wick with a special paper filament to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while ensuring a wick trimming flame posture. The difference between CDN wicks and CD wicks is a subtle but vital one. The CDN / Stabilo KST curls less while the CD / Stabilo curls more.  Overall, they tend to burn cooler then the CD wicks in most waxes. CDN wicks will curl at approximately a 30-degree angle.  The CD wicks curl to a 90-degree angle.  The lesser angle or curl of the CDN wick will result in a smaller melt pool or base.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are CDN, 5, 6, and 7.  I'm using between and 8-9% fragrance load.  I will allow it to cure for 2 weeks before testing them.  I will keep you updated!  The other items I used when testing are the bowtie wick centering bars, and our candle wick trimmers.

If you've found a combination that works for you, please feel free to share your results below.
