Sept. 2, 1941. B. s. PETRULIS CANDLE PERFUMER Filed Sept. 7, 1940 Patented Sept. 2, 1941 r orrics V CANDLE PERFUMER. Bruno S. Petrulis, Lockport, Ill. I Application September 7, 1940, Serial No. 355,791

8 Claims.

This invention relates to candle perfumers.

One object of this invention is to provide a ring like perfume reservoir having means for supporting it from the top of a candle, some distance away from the flame thereof and provided with heat conducting means, bridging the gap between the flame and reservoir and adapted to conduct heat from the flame to the reservoir, whereby to evaporate the perfume and permit of its escape, without contact with the flame, whereby its fragrance is not destroyed.

Another object is to provide a device of this character which automatically lowers as the candle is being consumed, but constantly maintains its position relative to the flame.

Another object is to provide a simple, efficient and decorative perfume evaporating device which not only enhances the attractiveness of the candle on which it is used, but gives off the pleasant scent from the perfume, particularly, when the candle is lighted.

Other objects and advantages will appear in the course of this specification, and with all of said objects andadvantages in view, this invention consists in the several novel features hereinafter fully set forth and claimed.

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a candle holder and candle, partly broken out at its upper end and showing a simple form of the present candle perfumer, in vertical cross section, supported thereon;

Fig. 2 is a plan of the device;

Fig. 3 is a view of the device looking from below;

Fig. 4 is a cross section taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 5 is a detail, vertical enlarged cross section through one side of the device, and

Fig. 6 is a detail enlarged fragmental plan of certain supporting members of the device.

Referring to said drawing, which is merely illustrative of one embodiment of the invention, applied to a candle, the reference character 5 designates a candle holder in which is held a candle 6 having the usual wick I.

The candle perfumer comprises among other elements, an annular or ring-like reservoir, 8,

formed of light gauge sheet metal, of channel 50 formation, in cross section, with its upper edge portions turned inward and downwards into the interior of the reservoir, to form two lips 9. An annular evaporating plate It] is contained in the the lips 9, with its own edges contacting with the inner side faces of the reservoir. Thepurpose of this minimum contact between the evaporating plate and reservoir walls is to minimize the amount of thermal conductivity between the reservoir and evaporating plate. The latter contains a multiplicity of perforations ll through which the evaporated perfume escapes from the reservoir. n

Confined in the reservoir is an annular wick I2 for absorbing perfume poured upon the evaporating plate. The lips 9 project slightly above the evaporating plate and form therewith an annular shallow channel into which perfume is poured, and finds its way to the reservoir and wick. For obtaining the most pleasant results,

only enough perfume should be used to thoroughly saturate the wick.

Means are provided to support the reservoir upon the top of a candle in coaxial alignment therewith and slightly below the top thereof, and to constantly maintain it in such position, regardless of the consumption of the upper .end of the candle. The means shown comprise a guide ring l3 and a supporting ring M of greater diameter, concentric therewith, and securedthereto as by one or more struts l5 joining the two rings. Conveniently the rings are made of light gauge wires, bent into rings, the wire of the guide ring being of slightly greater length than that necessary to form the ring, and the surplus being bent outwards radially and welded or otherwise rigidly fastened to the supporting ring.

Welded or otherwise rigidly fastened to the supporting ring at equidistant places are a plurality of radially extending supporting arms [6, also preferably formed of light guage wire, which arms incline downwards toward the bottom of the reservoir and are welded or otherwise rigidly fastened thereto. Desirably the angle of inclination of the arms is sufficient to support the reservoir belowthe top of the candle.

The guide ring surrounds the wick of the candle and as the top of the candle is consumed, a socket forms in the top of the candle, and the supporting ring rests on the bottom of the socket and steadies the reservoir, holding it in a level position, while the guide ring follows'down around the wick and guides the reservoir in its downward movement, so that it remains in coaxial alignment with the candle. Due to the soft condition of the edge of the candle at the top of the socket, while it is lit, the supporting reservoir and bears against the lower edges of arms sing through the soft portion, as the candle is being consumed, permitting the supporting ring to rest on the bottom of the socket.

For conducting heat to the evaporating plate and thereby accelerating evaporation of the perfume, several heat conductors H are provided, which conveniently may comprise light guage wires, each welded or otherwise rigidly fastened at one end to the evaporating plate, from which they extend upwardly for a short distance and then are bent to extend radially, in an approximately horizontal plane, terminating in globular or enlarged portions spaced sufiiciently close to enter the flame zone or to be in close proximity thereto, whereby the heat conductors are heated and conduct heat to the evaporating plate. heat conductors are equidistantly spaced apart, and when two are used, as shown,-they are dis posed in alignment with each other.

In use, the device is placed upon the top of a candle, perfume is poured into the channel above theevaporating plate, eitherprior to or after the device is placed on the candle. The perfume drips through the perforations in the evaporat- .ing plate, and saturates the wick. The candle is .lightedand heat from the flame is conducted by tween the flame and perfume reservoir, shielding the latter from the heat of the: flame.

From the above it is apparent thatevaporation of the perfume is accelerated while the candle ,is lit, giving off a pleasant scent which permeates the entire room. Moreover, there is no likelihood of ,the perfume being scorched by the flame of the candle, but the original scent is retained.

I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
