Always remember to consider the combined height of both your candle and candle holder when selecting a Glass Cylinder Sleeve and the width of your candle holder. Once you have added together the height of your candle and holder, you should allow a minimum of an extra 3cm of space for the flame, so that it burns within the sleeve and not above. As the candles burn down the flame will move further down within the sleeve. 

Our exclusive Odessa and Ophelia candle holders from the Halycon Collection have been designed to perfectly pair with a selection of our Glass Cylinder Sleeves. Illustrated below are some of our favourite combinations. Odessa suits our 6.5cm x 35cm Cylinder Sleeve and Ophelia is designed for use with our 8cm x 40cm or 8cm x 45cm Glass Cylinder Sleeve.
