Help me find a very particular candle

I'm looking for a pillar candle with very specific (and apparently unusual) specifications. I'd like something that's 3 inches diameter and 5 inches tall. Ivory. Unscented. Real candle (not flameless LED, unless maybe it's the ones made out of real wax like Pottery Barn sells; MUST look real). [more inside]

looking for discontinued candle scent

I've been searching for a candle from the old williamsburgh candle company thats apparently been discontinued. E-mails to their corporate office have not been answered. The candle is called an apothecary candle and the smell, (odor? aroma?), is cucumber melon. We had purchased it at AC Moore for the longest time, but alas nothing is forever. I'd buy quantities if I could. Any help would be appreciated.

What happens to a candle's wax?

When a candle is burnt indoors, what happens to the wax? An amount of smoke equivalent to the mass of the candle is released as it's burnt (?)--does this manage to escape the house, or does most of it stay in the room and coat the walls, floors, ceiling, etc.?

Que milagrosamente te apareciste al indio juan diego manifestando tu presciencia con divinas rosas!

Is there a specific name for the Catholic candles you can get at Mexican grocery stores? The ones in glass jars with pictures of saints, Marias, or Jesus? And can anyone tell me more about them, such as how they fit into Catholicism or their cultural resonances? I'm curious about them, and I've found remarkably little info on the internet-- which leads me to wonder if I'm not using the right search term, or if (egads!) there actually is not a website out there with information.

How to save a candle with a "lost" wick

My sister gave me a lovely big pillar candle for Christmas. When I went to burn it last night, the wick burned off. There's a little tiny stub of a wick- I can light it, but it only burns a small blue flame. Can this candle be saved?
