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.

Absolutely amazing candle

This is most definitely one of the best candles I have ever owned. The scent is softly herbaceous with notes of hay and a subtle spiciness. Not a single artificial note. It's mellow, but the throw is not disappointing after it has a full wax pool. This is a truly vibe-producing candle. It sets a calm, relaxing mood in our home and is in many ways evocative of some of the smells we miss from San Francisco. Cheers to the scent-master who came up with this one--a triumph!

P.F. candles never disappoint

I might be obsessed, but I nearly constantly have a P.F. candle burning in my home. The scents are all so expertly curated, I love the simplicity of the amber jar and lid and knowing that they are not toxic to my family and pets. Thanks so much. San Francisco is a lovely new addition to your line up.

You nailed it!

You captured the intoxicating smells of San Francisco. I lived by the panhandle of golden gate park nearish the beach and when I burned this I felt so nostalgic & warm. thank you

This candle really pulls together woodiness and a foggy ocean. My favorite candles are Piñon and Patchouli Sweetgrass, and San Francisco complements them while still being distinctive. Love it.

Really smells like SF

Love this new scent! Tried the San Francisco candle in my latest order during the big July sale. Having been a resident in San Francisco for over a decade and the North Bay for 20 years, I have to say this hits it right on the nose. The only thing that could make it more San Francisco is eucalyptus (and of course, some of our real unpleasant smells – but I won't go there). I stumbled upon your lovely storefront in North Beach Fall 2021 and I've been a convert ever since. I love P.F. Candle Co. candles, incense and diffusers. My favorite scents are typically earthy and musky while I also like some of the floral scents that aren't too sweet. All time favorites are: Piñon, San Francisco, Golden Coast, Los Angeles, Canyon Hideaway (Soft Focus line), Sandalwood Rose, Swell and Moonrise (from the Sunset line). Thank you for making quality products that burn well and make my home smell like a high-end boutique.

Incredible scent

I want to live inside this candle. I just returned from a trip to the west coast, including San Francisco and Muir Woods and this candle took me right back. Definitely a year round scent. This was only my second P.F. Candle but now I need to smell them all!

Pleasant and Balanced

I've tried several scents from PF Candle Co, and most of them are slightly too sweet for my taste. This doesn't smell quite how I expected, and it still leans strongly to the sweet side, but it's still good. It's a lot more balanced than most of the other scents. Right away I picked up fig leaf, cardamom, and a vague spice. Having lived in San Francisco for about a decade, to me this candle doesn't quite hit the mark, but is certainly in the ballpark in terms of sense memory. Currently one of the better offerings from PF.
