Giving back

Do you support a charity?

Yes, a portion of our proceeds goes to THAW, a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing heat and electricity to the elderly, unemployed, disabled, and underemployed. We believe in giving back to the community.



What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept most major credit cards as well as PayPal - we do not currently accept cash, check, Venmo, Bitcoin, or money orders.

Why was my order cancelled?

Although this rarely occurs, we will occasionally cancel orders under the suspicion of fraud. We have metrics in place to protect all of our customers and if flags are raised, an order cancellation may be necessary. If this does occur, we will contact you immediately with an explanation. Flamme reserves the right to cancel any order.



How can I return or exchange my order?

To start the refund process, please send us an email at hello@flammecandles.com with your order number and the zip code associated with your order.  If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you can request a return or exchange within thirty (30) days of purchase if the candle is in the original condition and packaging. Please note that unless a manufacturing defect is present, we cannot accept returns of candles that have been lit. 

If you elect to return your candle completely, you can print your prepaid label, review your refund estimate and track the package back to our warehouse. We are committed to processing refunds quickly, so you will likely receive notice of your refund within hours of your return arriving to our warehouse. Refunds can take 1-2 weeks to be reflected in your account.

Please note that if you chose to return an item outside of the standard process, we will not be able to reimburse for return shipping and your refund will be delayed due to additional processing time. 

Please allow additional return shipping time for returns from military bases (APO/FPO).

While refunds leave our account immediately, it can take from a few days to up to 2 billing cycles for the money to appear in your account based on your bank's processing times.

About Our Candles

Flamme Candles are hand poured in glass jars. We use all natural soy wax for a clean, consistent burn. The custom fragrance blends are natural essential oils and/or non-toxic synthetic oils. Our premium cotton wicks are lead free and the candles are paraben, petroleum and phthalate free. The burn time is 50-60 hours. 

Can I add a gift note?

Absolutely! As you add an item to your cart, you'll notice that there is an option to "add gift message" right before you proceed to checkout, and you can always click on the cart icon on the right hand side of the page to access the gift message box as well; be sure to hit proceed right after so that you checkout and get the order started! Orders processed without a gift message unfortunately cannot have a message added to an existing order due to the way our fulfillment process works. We're currently working on ways to adjust this so our customers can add a gift message after the fact, but at this time we're unable to offer any additions or edits to gift messages on processed orders.


I entered the wrong shipping address! Can I change it?

Unfortunately we cannot change the shipping address for orders once they are placed due to the automated nature of our fulfillment there isn't an ability to alter the address. 

If your package was shipped via FedEx or UPS you can request a redirect, although this may cause you to incur an additional fee. Flamme Candles is not responsible for mis-delivered packages if the wrong shipping address, and we're unable to make changes on our end. 

If you need to change a shipping address after an order has been placed please reach out to FedEx, USPS or UPS to facilitate your request; any address change requests to our Helpdesk will be re-directed to this FAQ.
