Is it better to burn or melt candles?

Wax melts are more solidly aromatic than traditional candles, because they absorb heat more slowly and release aromas without burning the oils. The opposite happens when you burn a candle, as the heat from the flame keeps the wax at a higher temperature, causing a faster release of fragrance into the air.
