We laughed at the "absurd directions" for a large jar candle (20 oz) we had just purchased: "burn candle for at least four hours".
We experimented with several and we found: the large candle that burned for an hour or so melted down to the bottom of the jar leaving wax lining the jar; the same size candle that burned for four hours minimum was level at the wick when we blew out the flame.
Choose your candle size for the amount of time you want it to burn and you will get a candle that lasts for multiple burnings!
