What are Taper Candles?

A taper candle is a slender candle that gradually tapers from a wider base to a narrower top. They come in various lengths that can range from demure to dramatic (6” to upwards of 39”). Designed to fit into candlesticks and candelabras, they can be used for decorative purposes, such as adding an elegant touch to a dinner table or enhancing the atmosphere in any room. You’ll also find taper candles playing vital roles in celebrating Advent and Chanukah, as well as wedding ceremonies.
