How does it work when I drop off my container to be refilled?
How do I clean out my container?
How clean is “completely clean”?
When there are still wax, wick tabs, or adhesives on the bottom and the inside of the container we can’t get the new wick(s) to adhere to the bottom of the candle. That’s why we ask that your container be completely clean - meaning, the inside of the container needs to be completely free from wax, wick tabs and adhesives. If you'd like a new fragrance label, please remove the old one. We don’t apply new fragrance labels to containers that aren't originally from 1502.

Can I combine fragrances?
No, we cannot combine fragrances.
How long will it take?
Refills take 2-4 weeks depending on our production schedule.
Do you accept custom containers?
Yes, we can refill custom containers. The container needs to be at least 1.5 inches wide and no taller than 5.5 inches, non-porous, and a mouth about the same diameter as the body. A good rule of thumb is if it housed a candle previously, we can most likely fill it! Please keep in mind, we’ve done a (and continue to do) considerable amount of wick testing for our containers. When you have us refill a custom container we make an educated guess as to the size wick that will work however, because we haven’t been able to actually test wicks in the custom containers, you may not have a perfect burning candle - but we do our best!
