Scent Throw

How strong is it?

Great For

For Calm Moments & Moody Evenings

Our 7.2 oz Standard Candles are hand-poured into apothecary inspired amber jars with our signature kraft label and a brass lid. This is our most popular size and is meant for dressers, countertops, nightstands – basically everywhere.

Burns for 40-50 hours. 2.9” in diameter and 3.5" in height.

P.F. scents are meant to enhance a space rather than overpower it, and are especially ideal for people with scent sensitivities. If you prefer a stronger scent throw, we suggest pairing your candle with another product from our line - use Incense or Linen & Room Sprays to quickly fragrance your space, or place a Reed Diffuser in the room for low-maintenance scent throw all day long.


Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:

  • Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.
  • Never attempt to trim a burning candle.
  • Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.
  • The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.
  • Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.
  • Once the candle's gone, we hope you'll re-use it. Clean it out and you've got a new planter or pencil holder – or whatever you want! Click here for tips on reusing your empties.


Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these common sense rules of thumb:

  • Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.
  • Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
  • Do not allow your wick to curl over, as this can create a larger than normal flame.
  • Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.
  • Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.
  • Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.

Our candles are simple: they're all made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fine fragrance oils, and cotton-core wicks. The fragrances we use are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never (ever) tested on animals.

5 Ways To Take Care of Your Candles

Candle Care

1. Trim That Wick: Before lighting, trim the wick to 1/4" using scissors or one of our wick trimmers for a clean, safe burn and increased candle lifespan.

2. Let It Burn: Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar every burn to prevent tunneling - especially important on the first burn!

3. Safety First: Never leave a lit candle unattended, and don't burn for more than 4 hours at a time. To protect the surface below from heat, place your candle on a coaster or tile.

4. Know When to Stop: Don't burn your candle if only 1/4"-1/2" of wax remains. Lighting a candle without enough wax can overheat the jar.

5. Reuse It: Once the candle is finished, clean out the jar! Now you've got a new planter or pencil holder or whatever you'd like. More tips on how to reuse here.

My Favorite PF Candle Scent--Please Make Diffuser and Other Products

I absolutely adore this earthly, warm, and lovely scent. It really is like sitting in a forest, and it makes for a warm, cozy feel. I found that it filled my office perfectly--that is, not overwhelming, yet I could smell it throughout the day. Please make a reed diffuser version!

New favorite

I am very particular about scent and San Francisco swept me away to such a blissful place the first time I smelled it. Sun-warmed pine needles, redwood bark, crushed herbs, wet black loam, red fern, sea salt…imagine an ancient mossy arboreal forest mixed with wisps of palo santo and golden starlight. Fragrant enough to lightly scent my small bedroom and transform it into a cozy magical sanctuary.

Very Impressed!

First time purchasing a PF candle and I am very happy! The San Francisco scent is sublet and not overwhelming. You smell it and it leaves you wanting to smell it more! It has an earthy scent, not sweet. What was most important for me was that it did not give me a headache or reek havoc on my sinuses!

Love this

I love this--it smells like a damp mossy log on the floor of a redwood forest. Just the right amount of damp bark smell. I mean this in the best way.

Love this New Scent!

I'm a big fan of most of P.F.'s scents, and I really love this one as well. A bit more subtle and earthy than their other scents.

I gifted this scent to a loved one who enjoys visiting San Francisco. They loved it! Love P.F. Candle Co.! One of my go-to gifts.

At first I thought it was weird but it’s grown on me and now I’m addicted. It’s earthy and musky without being sickly sweet. It’s hard to describe. Smells comforting. Perfect for year round.

Earthy and Clean

This is a very unique scent, and one I have grown to love. To me it smells like redwood moss after rain. It also has a certain woody sweetness to it. Hard to describe but really lovely. I am into natural scents, not too cloying or cologne-like, and this one is probably my favorite, along with the Ojai Lavender and the Golden Coast.

Made me cry

I lived in Hayes Valley for 8 years and used to take nightly walks through the Panhandle and into Golden Gate Park. This candle smells exactly like the Panhandle on a foggy evening in October through January. Damp, earthy eucalyptus with a bit of bite from the oceanic salt breeze. I’ve since moved to the Mission and started a whole new life, but my god, this takes me back to my 20s. There is something special about something that makes you nostalgic for the person you once were and don’t really miss.
