These 8 inch unscented taper candles are often used to decorate weddings and banquets because they have no scent and are available in so many vibrant colors. Our unscented candles also make a great addition to table arrangements in your home. We dip a white taper candle into our high melt temperature, colored wax, coating them on the outside. This is what gives our dripless taper candles their beautiful color. Our taper candles will burn at about 1.5 inches per hour. The base of the candle will to fit in a standard taper holder. Our tapers are priced by the pair because 2 candles come joined together by the wick.
